Angry Birds Short Fuse Level 27-11 Walkthrough

One strategy for Angry Birds Short Fuse level 27-11 is to blast the TNT on the right side with a Yellow bird. This will cause some pretty crazy chemical reactions in the piggies above the level. Finish the level with a Boomerang bird. The score in the video below is 173,830.

218970 with 3 birds. First bird similar to the video but just grazing the horizontal slab. Goal is to have the two bottles fall down to the horizontal plank and then the gas canister ignites and slams the plank and bottles into structure with the pigs. With luck, the bottles break close enough to the pigs to make lots more pigs. Normally this shot is followed by the boomer bird to take out all the pigs but I got lucky and the structure collapsed on its own.

Second shot, lobbed the boomer a little higher than the first shot and into the back TNT. Straight lob, no boomerang activation.

Third shot, lobbed the boomer bird on a similar line and activated it between the the upper and front structures. This pushed the orange potion into the pig to set it off, which dropped debris onto the debris below for big points. An extra 10k for the unused bird.

Lots of attempts on this level before all the came together in one play.

This was my strategy before I saw the walkthrough.
I figured there was mega-points in that structure if both blue potions could be administered.
I’ll keep trying.
Thanks for the proof of concept.

Thanks @dmsral. I was trying this technique originally before giving up, but you proved that it would work. After retrying, I got very lucky!

I hit the left end of the horitzontal slab to topple the bottles. The issue is not breaking the wooden arm of the catapult. Took 4 birds with debris left to hot 235K, so much higher scores will come.

up to 236k/4 with the same strategy as described above (make the pigs replicate with the 1st) with the following reordering of the 2nd-3rd/4th shots:
a) if the bottom-left structure has enough damage, i hit the vertical (brown-red) pipe at the top with the 2nd to activate the potion on the pig (hopefully getting full destruction on the bottom-left structure by material falling down), and then activate the 3rd after breaking the pipe of the bottom-right structure.
b) if the bottom right structure does not have enough damage, i use the 2nd to make it have so (hitting it low, by activating the bird when at the right side of the blue `tower’ in the background), then take out the bottom-right structure with the 3rd shot described above, and then finish things off by dropping the top structure with the 2nd shot described above.

given that i’ve had 220k+/3 with one of the pigs replicating only 3 (instead of 9) times (so missing out on 30k), 250k+ scores in case of situation a) or 240k+ score in case of situation b) are indeed feasible i think, as already written above by @abeggertoo,

now up to 240860/4 with scenario b) above. with more destruction on the pipes 245k is possible with it.

I keep hoping to find a way to release the two blue potions on the six pigs under the pipe on the left. If you can tag all six of them with both bottles, that’s up to 54 pigs, worth 270,000 points by themselves. If you knock the bottles off the shelf just right, they’ll soft-land on the pipe below, and if you set off the tank without breaking the pipe, any bottles that have landed on it will be pushed into the rusty pipe on the right side of that stack of pigs, which potentially could hit those pigs with the potions.

What I haven’t been able to do is both soft-land the bottles and set off the tank without breaking the pipe. I can knock off the bottles by running Yellow into the left end of the topmost stone block in that stack, but then Yellow inevitably either lands on the pipe attached to the tank, breaking it, or he ends up bouncing backwards out of the pig zone entirely. And I can’t get the Boomerang to set off the tank. I can get Yellow to set off the tank without knocking the bottles off the shelf, but that just gets the result in the video.

If anyone can make this work, or verify that the double wall of pipe plus wood is too thick for the blue potions to penetrate to the pigs on the other side, please post!

Thanks Slim, I haven’t been around as much as I would like, it’s been a busy year finishing up my MBA and working full time.

Anyways, here are the screenshots (if I attach them incorrectly I apologize:

Bird 1:

http://angrybir.de/1eU0e5W
http://angrybir.de/1eU0iTm

From what I saw, Yellow bird as normal to skim across the cement plank. Both bottles fell below and the yellow bird detonated the TNT. Cements pieces from the lower right structure fell onto the canister, which ignited but didn’t move up as normal. When the canister detonated it shot both of the bottles to the left, which broke the pipe (I think it was the bottles that broke the pipe). The penetration of the bottles were much deeper than normal and it appeared that almost all 6 (probably 5) of the pigs came into contact with both of the bottles.

Bird 2:

Sorry no picture because this was an absolute choke shot. Tried to arch the boomer bird to hit the pink potion but only clanked him off of the white pipe below.

Bird 3:

http://angrybir.de/1eU0X7g

Bomb bird to push pink potion to inflate the top pig. Nothing special.

Bird 4:

http://angrybir.de/1eU12bd

Boomer bird to get the last pig. Accidentally clipped the pipe on its way back but luckily still got the pig.

This is definitely a pure luck occurrence but I still should have managed a 3 bird score of about 320K but I won’t complain :).

Boy does this take lots of work & LUCK. Eventually managed not to flub any shots which was a good thing, because I needed all 4 to improve to 226100 on Android phone.

With the 1st shot using a low/med arc with late boost, I managed to not just knock both blue bottles, undamaged, down onto the “arm,” but the gas canister flung them, still intact, into piggies. I could see at least 21 piggies remained in the left structure & I don’t know how many had died & were already counted in my score. I’m pretty sure my score at this point was only about 47k, but with at least 105k from just the piggies I could see to count squished together in the left structure, I knew there was hope to improve upon my 200560, so I didn’t immediately restart, even though I knew I hadn’t achieved max replication with the blue bottles’ potion.

2nd shot has to be high enough to clear closest structure which by now is slightly expanded with replicated pigs, while not hitting the top pipes, as it’s being aimed to destroy the far right side by exploding TNT & killing those piggies.

3rd not too far below top left corner & activated so that the now expanded pig takes out top & as debris rains down, at least 1/2 of the replicated piggies in left structure roll right & die.

4th high enough to clear structure & let go far enough so that when activating the boomerang, it hits in just the right spot to kill the remaining piggies.

Phew that was hard work & I am so very glad I am done with this one. I’m not delusional, the TopScore of 313k+ isn’t in the cards for me, but congrats @thetoddman23, you must have been absolutely awestruck when those replicating piggies kept replicating & dying.

@ernor63, @donnmega, @thetoddman23; enlighten me here. You guys seem to be the only three to go over 300k here, and looking at your screen prints and explanations, I just can’t get this to happen. I have spent endless of hours on this level, many hours on airplane flights, skipping from different angles (to get the TNT to explode while skipping low, based on provided screen prints, would seem to take a miracle shot in my mind), and I have never seen both bottles reach all 6 pigs in the bottom. Maybe 3 to 4 tops, but nothing even close to getting them all. Some of your descriptions seem to indicate you (@ernor63) have achieved this feat multiple times. We’re both on iPad, so only the OS version may be different. Just curious what exactly you guys are doing with the first bird to get these 2 bottles to act as I think they are in your cases. I have tried so many angles consistently, just never seen what you guys are experiencing.

Thetoddman23 says the yellow bird detonated the TNT after knocking over the two blue bottles.

Can’t understand this – the angle on his screen shot seems to be too shallow.

My two penneth worth. Whilst I do not doubt any of these scores in any way, purely on a personal level, for very high scores, I would just like to see, from everybody on here, clear full-frame and unambiguous screen shots of the important strike. Zoomed in half frames or pictures of a new “high score screen” do nobody any good. I do it every time so why can’t everyone else?

By thetoddman23 (@thetoddman23)Score: 313,320

Haha are you serious? “Clear full framed and unambiguous screenshots” really? Have you ever thought that people play zoomed in? Not only can you be more accurate but you can easily see trajectory and activation point with the background much clearer. Also, I posted the right half zoomed in along with the left half on the first bird of my high score, which is more detailed than a zoomed out shot to help everyone, along with screenshots along the way. I understand your frustration not getting a high score but really man?

Rank: Boss Hog with 14300 points
By Pointdexter5 (@pointdexter5)Score: 301,680

@thetoddman23, I think the main argument is that too many people post screen shots after the fact, which prove nothing, and do not help with pointers about the trajectory. I have expressed that opinion before myself. Not sure though what the correct solution would be, and not every platform allows for fast enough screen shots, which complicates this.
As far as your screen shots and walkthrough, it’s all very detailed, so thanks for what you have provided. I have tried for hours to repeat that first shot to where both bottles make it to all 6 pigs, just not been able to pull it off. The only way I had the TNT explode however, was with a much higher angle shot compared to your screenshots. Was this a fluke shot for you? Or can you repeat this strategy? I’m just trying to determine the correct angle for the first shot, which is why I asked the three top score players for input.
On these new levels, with multiple potions, it’s amazing to see how score differences can be this huge between even top 10 scores, so hope to be able to get these few levels I’m working on a tad improved yet.

It was a fluke shot for me and I have not even tried the level since because I spent so much time on it before but I don’t think the trajectory is much to focus on as the result of the canister with the blue bottles is so unpredictable.

Hey. I see you play on Android so maybe it’s not as easy to take screen shots. On IOS it’s simple to unzoom and capture a shot very quickly. I used to have trouble doing it on a PC but Dropbox has made it simple. Even if the level is being played zoomed in which of course I do a lot, it’s really no problem to zoom out and capture. Well done with your scores and I’ll keep at this one and hope for the best.

@ernor63, @donnmega, @thetoddman23 — Wow, those are awesome scores. Did you notice anything unusual when the potions combined? I’ve been playing this level a LOT but have yet to have either potion affect any of the three pigs stacked on the left; only the three on the right are affected. When both potions do combine, it is only for 30 pigs maximum (3 original pigs on left + 27 pigs on the right). Picture of my most recent success is at https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/jwgardenwiz/album/picture/9403/ . 30 pigs limits my scoring to ~250k. Do you recall what version you used when you achieved your high scores — i have the patience to keep trying but I’d like to think that it’s still possible.

My trick was to fling the yellow bird into the far right TNT – With luck, propels the arm to the left – the two blue bottles fling up, compounding the pink at the top. Throw the boomerang to take out the maximum of the left structure. Sent the bomb in the perfect spot between the silver plumbing, all the way down for max destruction.

I grazed the stone plank to drop the blue potions. The yellow bird also activated the bottle. I used the green bird to detonate the TNT. Black bird luckily killed all pigs generated from the blue potion. Fired final bird just high enough to activate the pink potion. I think I just got lucky. The closest score I’ve gotten to that is only 165K. I keep trying.
