Fairly repeatable strat for 110-115k: First bird as in video. Second bird high arc, then down on the bottom pig to the right of the platform. Third bird, drop egg on platform so the carcass breaks the pipe a makes it collapse. Potion will inflate the remaining pigs and cause massive destruction.

Thanks @f91jsw! 117k so far, but I think more is possible with this 3-bird strategy.

@f91jsw, thank you for this strat. I found this level the hardest level to play. I don’t know yet what’s coming up later. Tried as per video, about 100 times, could not reach average. Then after even more tries one your way I finally succeeded bu getting above average,

@kathi17 is your score a typo? It seems impossible to get a score that high.

@andy2510 Do you have Android? If you do, this is a self destruct level. I mentioned it in the self destruct forum. Frequently, the whole thing goes down, and you have all your birds left! Just reload it a few times.

Sometimes it happens quickly, and sometimes after a minute or two. Sometimes it only needs one reset, and sometimes a lot more.

I’ve had it happen 3 times, at other times, it only destroys the right side.

I can’t seem get the self destruction to happen on an android tablet despite many resets.
What’s the secret for it to happen?

Rank: Boss Hog with 13330 points

I don’t know the secret. There doesn’t seem to be a pattern. The first time it happened, I had the level open, but I was reading this site. I picked up my phone, and started to launch the YB, and noticed that the whole thing was collapsing on it’s own.

I played some more levels, then went back to 26-1, and it collapsed again. Then I played some other levels, and decided to try again. I had to refresh quite a few times, but then it happened again. I also had it collapse quite a few times and only destroy the right half of the level.

It’s really random. Sometimes it happens immediately, and sometimes you have to refresh it about 50 times. I play on a Galaxy SIII.

It also sometimes happens immediately, and sometimes about 5 minutes later. It doesn’t seem to be the potion bottle, it seems to be a jump of the wooden platform under the big pigs, and they hit the bottle when the platform jumps.

@Kathi17 — Would really like some more details if you can get them. Sounds like you got 107K for total destruction, before birds counted? Also sounds like it sometimes takes a few minutes, but sometimes happens fairly quickly? Thanks for any additional details you can provide.

By kathi17 (@kathi17)

@mvnla2 I can’t figure out more details. It’s so random. The first time it happened, I had just turned my phone on, and opened the level without playing any other levels. At other times, it has happened after playing different levels for hours.

Can @slim figure it out from the files, or do they just show whether or not you used a power up?

Sorry @AMSlimfordy — I don’t understand what your comment means? Are you implying that @Kathi17‘s score is with a PU?

@Kathi17 — I don’t think @AMSLimfordy can figure out any more detail from the files, but it’s worth asking.
I play on iPad, which could make a difference.
I just did 100 restarts with no self destruction. It would really help if you could describe exactly what you see and how long it takes.
There is normally some amount of “settling” on the level after a restart, and this sometimes results in things rocking in increasing amounts until something falls, The AB levels are supposedly run by a physics program, so it is unusual, although not impossible, for a level to appear to stop moving and then start again. I’ve wondered about the green fluid dropping from the pipes in various levels, but never seen anything happen as a consequence. The implication is that there is fluid flowing through the pipe, and therefore there could be a sudden change in pressure that causes everything to start shaking.

@mvnla2 I think what @AMSLimfordy meant was that he could only tell the difference between a legit score and a power up, not what caused everything to collapse.

I wondered about the drips too.

There is no “how long it takes” like on most unstable levels, it is completely random. When it happens, all I can see is that something below suddenly jumps, and then the pigs hit the flask.

I wish I could tell you more. Tonight I can’t get it to do it at all, and it’s almost midnight, so I won’t have time to restart my phone and try it again until morning.

Has anyone seen self-destruction on a platform other than Android?

1st and 2nd bird) high arc just over the top, speed up on descent towards corner of pipe. it should break after the 2nd bird and should cause a chain reaction: the horizontal pipe moves downward, bringing the orange potion into contact with the two pigs inside the scientist (hereby i protest to rovio against the implicit suggestion :-), causing these to expand, causing a long horizontal stone slab to poke the tower on the left, which should collapse. if you’re lucky the blue potion affects both pigs in the tower for 20k extra, and the bottom pig is killed by fallig stuff, for a 120+ score.

the first part is quite repeatable; succeeded in getting both pigs to replicate on my 10th or so attempt; (much) higher scores possible with more destruction to the pipes (cf. the 0-bird score 147k score of the top scorer and deduct 20k for the two birds).

Thanks @vuelva — Just there is anyone else who, like me, insists on misunderstanding strats, the pipe corner you are aiming for is the top left corner of the pipe coming out of the center floating wood block. Much easier and more effective than aiming for the corner to the upper right of the orange flask!

Rank: Gold Flinger with 9485 points
By to mock a mockingbird (@vuelva)

right, i meant the top-left corner. just tried it again and even if the 2nd doesn’t work out perfectly, you not infrequently have a backup shot with the 3rd for between 115k and 120k. i had also explored going for the right-hand side of the pipes, but like you found that apart from it being more difficult (to hit the same spot twice to break the pipe), it was less effective as the expanding pigs often fly away through the hole created without doing much damage.

Well, this should make some people angry. I just scored 158,480 points, thanks in part to the same self-destruction, mentioned by @kathi17 back in 2013, for her high score.
I’ve been using the strategy of @vuelva since last night. After hundreds of attempts, just as I was about to release the first yellow bird, the entire right side exploded. I then used the bird to take out the pigs in the first tower. If I had brought down the tower, the score would be even higher. I took a screenshot of what was left after the only bird used, and a pic of the tally screen.
I thought about not posting my score because of how I got it, but, as the previous high score was allowed, I decided to let the Admins sort this out.



Good luck and happy flinging to all !!

@kathi17 and @meanguy, glitch scores are not allowed on the leaderboards and the Daily Challenge. Therefore, unfortunately I’ll have to ask that you remove your scores.

And to make it fair to everyone, there will be no Underdog awarded for today’s challenge. Also, I will be blacklisting this level from appearing in the challenge again.

Thank you for your honesty and understanding!

@sweetp – Not a problem. I have replaced my glitch score with my previous – legit- score of 124,900. As I originally posted, I was fully leaving this up to you & the Admins to sort this out.
After over three years, I was surprised that the glitch was still possible.
I, too, believe in keeping the Nest fair and equal for everyone.

@admins Revisiting this level and I see there has been some controversy regarding the high scores obtained particularly by @meanguy. His score was disallowed. I have a question to ask. Is the current high score on here from @pourpete and the other high, 130ks, going to be allowed to stand? Just asking! Wouldn’t it be fairer to remove this level from the score list altogether as in Piggy Farm 34/13.

Good catch, @steviep147. I’m not at home right now, so can’t do much from my phone. I’ll investigate and make the proper inquiries before removing these suspicious scores. So, hang tight, and I’ll get to the bottom of this.

Hi SweetP. I stopped playing AB Classic a long time ago, and even …gasp…removed the game from my tablet. So I can’t provide a screenshot, and obviously can’t explain my score from 5 years ago.

Please feel free to delete my score.
