I really would like to know how scores above 125k are possible! Especially that 232k one.

Oh wow! It’s indeed possible!
Don’t hit the big boulder, but send red nearly straight into the blue liquid.
It somehow then hits the pigs better so that there are much, much more.

Maiasatara, aim for the bottom bottle. Your bird won’t break it . It is a hard shot because you don’t want to kill any pigs but if you break the crystal right next to the bottom bottle the then bottles are free to all break at once over the pigs. Then you get 3x3x3 piggies. Use your second shot hit the boulder as gently as possible so it doesn’t break the bottles before they fall on the pigs. It isn’t always successful but when everything works you can get a nice high score in the 200 to 300 range. Good Luck!

Where are you hitting the tower of blue liquid so you get all three to topple without red bouncing and killing pigs? I’ve gotten two potion bottles to work but not three, and most times either red pops the pigs or the potions push to the right sliding off to nothing. Thanks!

For the most points, I suggest using your first shot to take out the hanging pig, and continuing into the middle bottle. This should cushion the bird so he doesn’t kill the 2 bottom pigs, while not knocking the stack of potions over too much (if it does fall over, restart). Then hit the boulder, and if you’re lucky, all three potions will hit both pigs for many points.

Rank: Gold Flinger with 8255 points
By Cal010 (@cal010)Score: 279,390

A bit of math for this level: A pig split three times should become 27 pigs. 27 pigs are worth 135k. Since you can do this to both the bottom pigs, that should be worth 270k. Then it’s 5k for each of the other two pigs, and 10k for the unused bird, for a minimum total of 290k (plus destruction, however small).

290k. So why did I only get 279k after successfully tripling both pigs? Something doesn’t seem right here.

@Cal010 — Thanks! Got 224090 following your strat. Couple of points:
1) Don’t give up if you do everything “right” and get only 1 star; huge variation with “exactly” the same shots.
2) Seemed to work best for me if you hit top of boulder — then it bounces on spring before gently nudging rack over so all 3 bottles end up on pigs.

Amazing Strat @cal010! This is working for a lot of nesters. I was so excited when I finally got over 200k just using one bird to the boulder. I finally got 3* on all the levels on my own so I just now started looking at the walkthroughs and leaderboard for this latest AB release. Now I’m down…waaaaaaa. I keep trying your way but so far either I knock the bottles and board over and kill the two big pigs with red; or it all looks okay but when I toss the 2nd red at the boulder the boulder hits the wall of vials and they just disintegrate! LOL. I’ll keep on trying. I even reduced the fling power a lot and it still caused the vials to flub up when the boulder hit the wall. OH well. ;-)

I think that this is luck, but the blue portion is broken when I drop the ball of the stone in the second birds when there is force too much.
I felt the score of 300K if I fell to prove right lightly when I could obtain it with high probability!

@cal010, a great strategy! And Thank you!
I have not been able to duplicate what I did. But after many attempts at hitting middle potion bottle and the cupboard falling backward. I tried throwing at the bottle on the lowest shelf. It would tip to the left nicely almost all the time. Leaving the hanging pig as a possible bonus.Then I threw the second bird at the bolder. Sometimes the potion would go poof, but I managed a lucky shot, that popped pigs all over the place. Score 317,980

Yippee !!! I finally managed to “get it,” at least I think I got it as I managed a tad over 300k on Android phone with 2 shots. I still need another 22550 for #1, but at least I know that 10k of that is my 2 birds vs the current 1-birder by current TopScore. I’ll have to keep trying because my rank on this level needs So….. much help

This certainly is a beautiful thing to watch. I managed to improve from 300010 to 314380 with 2 shots & must move on as I can only dream about how nice it would be to watch to an incredibly lucky 1-birder for a shot at TopScore

My best efforts were as others wrote, the hanging pig is taken out by red which also took out the crystals in the bottom right corner. I often took the next shot without minimizing my screen, but this time I did minimize to better my chances of nailing the shot & as the boulder hit the shelf I watched the 3 potion bottles almost roll onto the pigs 1 at a time. I was pretty certain everything would multiply to the max & was so very happy to see over 304k with the 10k bonus not yet included.

In fact, you do not want to have the first bird hit the middle portion, but rather the wooden knob holding it. I’ve tried millions of times doing the former, and the shelf almost always toppled over, foiling the feat.

But still, you, sir, just got credit for my 316k. ;)

322550 – Lucky shot with one bird directly through the hanging pig. Bird hit the potion bottle and caused the structure to slide to the right and then slowly tip to the left. All three potion bottles landed on the two pigs and then the multiplication began. The pigs raining down caused a lot of damage to the wood below.

I thought my 1 birder of 195k was pretty good. Then I came and saw the high score over 300K! I instantly thought it had to either be a power up or a typo. Then I saw who had the score and just had to see how it was done. Sitting around 290K now. May have to try and improve. So want to get over 300k

By Dr O'Neski (@steviep147)Score: 318,730

In my opinion hitting the hanging pig first, as described often here, is the marginally better strat. Hitting it on the bottom edge is best and then a bit of luck so as not to break anything else. Usually around 6k. Then the boulder shot and hope for the best really! I’ve scores 290k’s often like this and I think it has more potential.

A first shot into the boulder does work well however. The difference between a 90k and 200k+ here is purely down to whether or not the top potion hits the hanging pig, 90k, or misses it and falls to the bottom, 200k +. I did get lucky with this and it is how I scored my 300k.

Playing on iPhone and.cannot get any spectacular result using the strat to go for the hanging pig first. Scored 200+K several times going for the boulder though, and made an observation. When the boulder tips the shelves over, the top potion usually hits the hanging pig, and the result is consistently in the 90-95K range. But sometimes the top potion misses the hanging pig, so this pig is then the last one to pop. When this happens the score is consistently in the 200+K range. Have not been able to get this to happen deliberately – it seems to be random. So whenever the hanging pig is popped first, I think it saves time just to reset and fling again!!

I have not been able to replicate @thetoddman23 lucky shot once, so I tried to improve the basic 2 birds solution.

The first bird is through the dangling pig and into the middle bottle.
The result should look like this:

For the second bird, high arc to gently but firmly push the boulder and the advantage of going back for some more damages.

Here is the trajectory and result for my highest score:

And this is the highscore screenshot:
