Angry Birds Short Fuse Level 27-5 Walkthrough

One strategy for Angry Birds Short Fuse level 27-5 is to loft the Red bird nearly straight up, dropping just behind the piping to earn 4,000 points from the flowers there. The TNT below should detonate and the pink potion should clear most the level. Clean up using two Yellow birds. The score in the video below is 107,320.

1 bird shot. Shoot red at the bar above the first lower pig. Will destroy that side and role to the left to go down and hit the TNT.

Thanks @cali_mom for this one-birder. It’s a very precise shot, but repeatable. Aim for the very edge of the horizontal plank. This will loosen the structure so when the pink balloon ascends, the structure collapses.

Great call @cali_mom :). I rather fast made 127.130 / #5, followed by another 1B – 126.370 / #7. Nice 2B from 114 to 119.580 K, 3 B 112-117 K.

I employed a strategy same as you to have a pink pig after having given vent to TNT on the right side not right above.
While I repeated it, I achieved 1-birder!

Brilliant! Thank-you @cali_mom for this strat. The red bird hit caused the left hand structure to lean right; after hitting TNT the inflated pig was forced right to take out that structure and left side collapsed as support was gone.

This is the exact method I used to get my 1 birder too.

As mentioned, the key is to get the right structure to tilt right and lean on the center structure. Which causes the pink bird to take the center structure debris to the right…which can then take out the right side.

Quite often only the bird in the stone block tilts to the right. Still makes for a nice 115-118k 2 birder. I just kept trying because I thought the one birder would eventually happen. Took about 50 attempts.

Another thank you @cali_mom. With not too many tries I managed to improve almost 16k with your 1-birder for 129050 on Android phone. I’m not giving up just yet as this level is certainly frustration-free when compared to something like 25-11 or 25-12. I can’t even get close to breaking the rank of 100 on either of those two, but for now am close to Top 50 here with your help.

Oh yes, hit just the right spot & had some of the wood destroyed before ‘lil red rolled left, got a flower or two & just ever so slightly bumped into the TNT setting it off for 133900. So close yet so far from número uno : -(

By AngryAdvisor (@lesleyg)Score: 136,930

Thanks for the great strat @cali_mom ;-) I aimed Red slightly lower…at the intersection between the top of the thicker wood plank and that bar above the pig. When he hit, he pushed in the thicker vertical plank enough so that the bigger pig and the little top one with the flower got destroyed while pushing the one in the cement box to lean to the right. He rolled down left, taking out all the flowers, then ignited the tnt. All that was left to get on the left was the pig in the cement box. After the explosion, the “bloated debris” got that pig and pushed right to get the right side to tip off the ledge. Thanks for the idea that got me Top Score with 136930 ;-))) Here’s a screenshot :

Nothing spectacular, just another one birder with a big L factor.

Here is the trajectory of the bird: http://oi57.tinypic.com/2zrixd5.jpg

And after 4 days of flinging roughly at the same spot, I got this result: http://oi60.tinypic.com/15qxhlc.jpg

I was planning to call BS for the score submitted by JEJB (@jose-buenrostro) at first, but wanted to improve my score on this one regardless as I was 10K behind where I wanted to be and 20K behind what seemed like a questionable high. The image submitted by JEJB however proved to be crucial. When you look at the image, you see quite some debris left, but more crucially, only 2 birds left and the trail of the 2nd bird shot at a high arc. You can actually see the aiming point as well. The bottle is crucial here (-;

So I started playing using that approach. I would shoot the first bird as many have done, making sure the pig in the cement brick leans against the middle tower, but before the red has a chance to roll into the tunnel, I would shoot yellow at a high arc and try to hit between the glass and wood just around and under the bottle. You have to shoot it as soon as it is placed into the sling. In many cases, I was able to get both the typical upper pig in the middle tower to triple, but also the pig in the leaning cement brick. This lead to scores in the 135k to 137 range. I was able to repeat this several times in a half hour time-span, so 135k is manageable this way.
For the 152k score, I happened to hit just low enough to where the blue bottle dropped and cracked, causing the low pig in the middle tower to triple right before the pink bottle explosion, so these three caused mass destruction. It all went fast, and three expanding pigs take a lot of focus, so I can not confirm if any other pigs tripled along with this event. Ended up with 132k with two birds for points.

Excellent observations @pointdexter5. I too got the lower pig to triple, but the big pig on the left didn’t pop, so I had to fling a 3rd bird. A 13K improvement to 151K. More points to be had, though.

@bonneypattycat: another level for your ABO – Levels worth another try.

4 days ago I started with the strategy described by @pointdexter5 below, and after 10 minutes I got my first success. A 158k result which was a full 3k above the previous top score by @steviep147 (note the absence of previous highscore in the screenshot, it was my first try on the Android version).

At this point I was just damn talented, damn lucky or both… unless Rovio has made some serious changes to the level.

So I started experimenting and indeed things were breaking more easily to the point that after the first bird a clear path was available without the high arc strategy. Here is a screenshot showing the partial destruction of the left structure after the first bird.

So instead of going to triplicate 2 pigs why not try for three?
And this is the idea behind the low arc with an acceleration just before impacting the right tower. Here is an example with the 3 pigs being triplicated.

By the way this strategy has another good side effect: you have more time to line up your second shot. Tip: wait for the red bird to fall into tunnel before flinging Chuck.

After that it was just a matter of patience before getting from 158k to 166k and finally 172k.

This is a screenshot before everything falls down for my best score.
(it felt great, hence the intermediate screenshot ;- ).

And indeed this is the final result.

And the highscore screenshot.

Hope it helps.

Was trying a relatively level shot to break the wood plank that is under the bottom left pig. That’s a really tricky shot. I then went to the “let’s lob the bird really high and see what happens” approach. That worked really well.
