Angry Birds Short Fuse Level 27-4 Walkthrough

One strategy for Angry Birds Short Fuse level 27-4 is to fling the Pink bird straight ahead toward the magic potion. The potions in Short Fuse imitate the Angry Bird with the matching color. In this case, the Pink Potion causes nearby pigs to become bubbles, which grab nearby blocks and floats upward before popping, similar to the Pink Bird. In this level, the bubble should rain devastation onto the piggies below. The score in the video below is 60,170.

After 67, 69 K /#8 I made 71.4 / #3. The video is OK. I made one change. I use light jump or dribbling shoot by 3 wooden balls to Pink Elixir. This give left side lift and more place for falling staff.

Similar to video, activating a bit sooner to pick up the balls in addition to the potion.

Thanks.

I’ve noticed that higher scores come when the birdie is aimed to hit the little horizontal joint just below where potion is sitting. Not the bar it actually sits on but the bit below that that looks like the join between the leg and the top piece.

Alternate strategy is to bounce the birdie off the little balls then activate as it bounces at just below or equal to the above mentioned joint. A lot of times you pick up the balls as well. Consistently 65+ with this strategy but nothing over 68k yet.

My highest score has come from strategy 1, so good luck everyone.

Correction – for my top score + 72k+ I hit below the above mentioned joint. Image of impact site:)

this is certainly one of the easiest levels to get three stars. getting a lot of points is another matter. i just posted a new top score of 78480 and the strategy that worked best for me is this: fling bird low, just over the concrete block, so the bird “skips” along the wooden balls. when the bird bounces into the vertical pipe just below the joint, activate the bubble. if the horizontal wooden beam holding up the concrete block (and 3 wooden balls) does not elevate – start over. you will need that wooden beam to lift and the potential points that come with it. if it does lift – then just hope for as much destruction as possible. i got this score when that horizontal bar floated to the left and took out both flowers (again, you will need those points – although there are other fortunate drops that can destroy them too). the rest is up to fate – but using this method i consistently scored 73k + …

I kept trying this method, to skip them along, but it would end up bouncing up too high to pick up the board, or too low to pick up the bottle. I finally ended up bouncing it off of a ball and up to a spot just left of the upright bar a little higher than half way and then hit the bubbles. One ball went left and destroyed one flower, then the whole bottom right side collapsed and destroyed the flower under there. Score of 80370.

Congrats on getting Top Score and earning a new puppy on today’s Underdog Challenge, @starmartyr! Yep, getting that right bottom structure to collapse seems to be another key on getting those additional points.

I haven’t been able to do it yet but @giantratz strategy for bouncing Stella off the balls on the left and up to grab the potion bottle has helped me increase my score today so far.

Thanks for sharing your high point strat with clear description @giantratz! This is working better for me so far – up to 76k which is a plus 4k above my starting score. Agree that getting the two left flowers helps with points and occasionally a top piece of debris flips over on the top right flower. For my 76k, there was damage to the middle lower pipes as well – debris crushed out the top part of the pipes below.

Thanks again @giantratz! I kept on and finally achieved 79900! Stella bounced off the balls and I activated her bubble as it hit the pipes, lifting the horizontal board and balls over to the left taking out both flowers and the left bottom piggie; then the potion pig popped upper structure sending it all down to crash part of the middle pipes and it did knock down the right bottom taking out that flower and last pig on the right.

To @admins, @sunshine and @mumsie42, here is the image link for the Underdog Badge:

Missed the destruction and final score shot…sorry. Had been playing the phone a lot and was waiting to see Guardians of the Galaxy…my poor battery died right before I realized I had the score and could snap a screenshot…Had to recharge once we got back in the car.

On another note – Guardians of the Galaxy is GREAT. It was a lot of fun to watch. Highly recommended.

Thanks @giantratz, this way worked for me too. Played out like you described, with the wooden plank being lifted over to get the flowers on the left.
I was a bit surprised by the score, as I didn’t think the destruction looked all that remarkable, but I did get complete destruction of the lower middle pipes.

Note to PC players. I can’t tell you why, but my scores for a similar shot are very different on my PC than on my android tablet. I would guess in the neighborhood of 5000 points higher on the android for a similar shot. Everything looks the same and seems to break that same, but on the PC I haven’t gotten to 70K. On my android, with far fewer attempts, I can get between 70K and 76K rather easily.

@Stocktoad *waves hand wildly* I know why! :) This is just another level where the physics don’t match other platforms, effectively handicapping PC scores. For lack of a better term, I call them PC-cursed levels. I’ve found over a dozen in every game I play (Original, Space, Rio). One of my side projects is to compile a list of possibles, and do automated tests on the worst offenders. Hopefully that will tell me what the difference is, so I can present concrete evidence to Rovio where it’ll be ignored. :)

This one seems especially bad. On PC, it took me three hours to get one 70,070 score. 1-birders were uncommon, and all scored 58-66k. Contrast with iPad, where my first twenty shots scored between 72-75k.

The only gameplay differences I’ve noticed were: Gravity seems weaker, so debris falls a lazier and causes less damage, especially to the pipes, which almost never break. Also, the bubbles don’t lift debris as forcefully or as high.

@stocktoad– How are you able to play this level on PC? On my Dell desktop,which is current on all AB updates,when I go to the last page of Short Fuse,there is a hanging banner that says “Coming Soon”. Did I miss something? Thanks

@meanguy the numbering changed to 27-4 in the latest update. For PC users it’s 26-4, or the page before the Coming Soon sign.

Back for todays challenge. Started with 73k and slowly worked my way up to 79,680. Tried lots of different bounces but mostly like cited by @giantratz and @starmartyr .This is my second puppy this week. I posted a screenshot in my album. @sunshine @amslimfordy
