130,690 with three birds. First two white birds took out the left tower and three pigs. Orange bird blew the TNT and took out almost everything else.

By Eric

I got 159710 using three birds. The first white bird was the same as the video, the second caused some additional damage (packing the wood from the front numbers together), then the orange bird was landed at the bottom of the divide between the 1 and 2. When the orange went off it that blew wood all over the level, blew up the second group of TNT with thrown wood, and knocked over the tower to get the remaining piggies.

Hope this helps someone.

By Okapi


1st w/b no egg to the second “2” taking out the top of the “2” which takes out the rt. tower and those 4 birds.
2nd w/b drop egg on first pile of tnt, taking out two birds.
Orange bird straight in to take out rest of birds.

White bird- launch in an arc not too high, hits the last 2 on the top-right corner. This shot is so it could create a pathway for the next bird.
White bird- launch in the same level as the previous bird. This time, drop the egg right on the TNT. This causes around 50-57k is damage.
Orange bird- fling in a low arc in such a way it hits the two vertical wooden blocks on the first “2”. The orange bird should go through the gap between the “2” and “0”. This causes massive damage, killing all pigs and destroying the TNT. If lucky, other wooden blocks pushed by the o/b could fall and break. Results can vary greatly depending on the number of wood destroyed.
Red bird- 10k bonus

Hope you understand. Happy flinging!

Not sure if this has been reported yet. But I dont have the same golden egg level as the video. My device is a Nokia N8 (which isnt capable of making screenshots and I dont have a camera nearby). The level does have some similarities, but there’s a lot less to destroy (~110k max).

I can confirm that this is the same on my N8. It was correctly unlocked at 8am GMT on the 31st.

I’ve also noticed that playing the level, sets the game theming (e.g. start screen and background music) to Season’s Greedings.
Playing every other level correctly sets the theming to Wreck the Halls.

By mozzie (@trefoil)

i have a nokia n8 too and mine is the same as all otherplatforms (the same in the video above!) but in seasons wreck the halls, summer picknick etc, the levels are downloaded from rovios servers directly arent they? i guess this must be it, i didnt play angrybirds for quite a while after the 25th december. i think i opened the app again on 11th january, maybe rovio noticed and fixed it by then, so my phone downloaded the correct one instead..?

123960 – not as high as some others, but it’s a diff strat
1st white bird – drop the egg between “1” and “2” – takes out all the pigs from 1 thru the right side. Doesn’t detonate the dynamite on the right side though
2nd white bird – drop egg on dynamite on the left and takes out the pigs on the first “2”
orange bird – slide under the gap in the “2” and takes out the last pig inside the “0”

160590 with almost the same strategy. The first bird was the same but I shot it so that it would drop an egg but also just hit the top left of the ‘2’ so that the carcass could do some more damage. This did explode the right tnt for me. I followed up with exactly the same 2nd and 3rd bird.
For clarification, this was a fluke. I’ve never gotten the right tnt to explode with the first bird before, let alone get such amazing destruction. You can also get a good score by sending the second bird at 45 degrees (maximum distance) and dropping the egg right in front of the rocket, then follow up with shooting OB on a high arc deep between the ‘2’ and the ‘0’.

151730 – 1st bird high arc and fall on the 4th column, do not detonate. Falls to the right, knocks down the tower taking out the 2 right pigs and sometimes the tnt. If the 1st bird doesn’t take out the tnt on right aim 2nd bird to the right side of tnt and drop egg bomb. Aim 3rd bird at the vertical wood blocks rolling through toward the 2nd column and then detonate. 10K for the remaining bird. 151730

The New Years Egg is missing on the latest iOS releases. I’ve confirmed that on both the iPhone and iPad versions of Seasons. It simply doesn’t show up. I’ve even tried setting the date back to pre December 31, 2011 and back again. It won’t show up.
