1birder, shot the same as video first bird but a little higher, dropped the potions then kept going into far tower like video second shot and took out the TNT too.

1-birder different strategy.
The position to aim at from this side to a pig of the second of them.
The boomerang bird pushes the pink portion.
Three right pig became gigantic from a pink portion and destroyed all it.

Great score@moondoggie!
@annach, I glad your helpful!
A pipe of the left edge did not readily fall down, but was accomplished at last!
In the case of me, I was able to finally get 119K leaving two mushrooms!
The screenshot let three pigs become gigantic.

A key of the high score is that the left pipe falls down to the left side by the thing which the left pig which became gigantic caught.

@thee-michelle Yet another great strat from you. Thanks! The key to a high score is as you say – getting the pink potion to enlarge three of the four pigs on the shelf to the right of it.

Another one birder. High reverse boomeranged into the vertical pipe, then the knuckle of the pipe holding the laser, then follow through into the far structure. Haven’t exploded the far TNT using this yet, but it should be possible.

By crash (@tmax)Score: 139,330

here is a link to the final score screen. Sorry the quality isn’t super good. Most of it happened really fast, but i think the luckiest part was when the pink potion BARELY rolled off to the left (which happens often), and when it broke BOTH pigs to the left of it were affected by the potion. Since then I only seem to get the closest one. The 2nd Pig getting big and lifting stuff helped…. i musta broke an orange potion now that I’m retelling this… can’t remember where that came in exactly, but i do remember 2 very big pink pigs rising simultaneously.

@tmax, my idea also. The trick is to get the four pigs laying to each other before the pink potion will be used. I got 136k until now, but the perfect fling didn’t happen yet.

148530/2
1st low, straight, reverse late, but before it hits anything (in particular, the pink potion should stay where it is), so that it hits the diagonal of the triangular stone (through the pig) coming from the top-right. intended goal: 1st structure should be destroyed; 2nd structure (the structure the triangular stone is on) should be destabilized.
2nd low, straight (i usually speed up right away), to the lower side of the pink potion. intended goal: chip the potion over the first two small pigs landing on the third and activating all three; this should finish the level; if you’re lucky the 2nd structure is destroyed (then usually by a combination of first the leftmost of the three pigs expanding and finally debris flying from the tnt on the right exploding).
140k+ is quite repeatable (every 10 minutes or so for me, i do find the 2nd chip-shot to be tricky though, more tricky than with the boomerang bird). i expect something like 152k to be feasible and more, say 155k, with luck: for my current score of 148530 there was at least 7k of accessible material left, material that had been all destroyed with some of my earlier 1 and 3-bird attempts (see below).

the strategy wastes one bird compared to the strategy of @thee-michelle, but the wasted 10k is compensated for, in the score by the better destruction one usually gets on the first two structures, and in your efforts by that the success rate is much better.

originally i had used a 3-bird strategy, with coincidentally the same 1st as thee-michelle’s, the 2nd to the top to destroy the remaining pipe, and the 3rd over the top reversing to take out the lower-middle structure and the leftmost structure (last two quickly before the level shuts you out). although 135k+ is repeatable with that, never got more than 141.5k with it with not much more in it, so had given up on that.
next i tried thee-michelle’s strategy, but waiting for the left structure to be pushed to the left by some flying debris is like waiting for rain in the atacama desert, so i grew tired of that and decided to force matters (as in the earlier 3-bird strategy but swapping the order), bringing the left structure down first, leading to success (143k) in one of my first attempts, then improving via 144k and 145k to my current best of 148.5k.

@vuelva, have to give you props for the atacama desert reference. That made me chuckle, and it’s a very accurate reference to this desert. I agree with your approach, if you turn the bird just at the right time, it will turn around just over the pink bottle. I think you need at least 35k at that point, otherwise restart. My best score actually had around 40k, when both left structures came down. Then it’s just a bit of luck hoping that pink gets lifted the right way, and that the enlarged pigs do the right type of damage. Had a few lower 140k instances, before finally hitting 148.

@pointdexter5.

Thanks for the confirmation and the details. Since posting last time I had improved to over 152k- with it. That required some effort (got five 148k scores in the process), but still think 155k+ is doable with luck. My threshold for throwing the 2nd was in principle situation-dependent (i estimated whether the 2nd structure falling down could destroy everything to the left), but in general that meant reset in case of scores lower than 33k after the 1st. I was also resetting in case the leftmost pink pig didn’t lift (some of) the three stones etc.

When will you post your scores? (I see you did post scores for 27-15; I myself do not have much appetite playing those levels again despite potential for huge gains; didn’t try 27-11 since getting my current score and i am quickly bored by 27-15).

Mockingbird, thanks for the stat. At first, it was hard to follow but persistence paid off. I think there are a few thousand points more available. There was at least one mushroom left and there is no accounting of the interactions between the pieces of structure as it falls.

Ah, you’ve dashed my hopes for five in a row, 27-14 to 28-3 :-) (Did think of that when playing 27-15 some days ago, but found that it in itself it was not enough of a motivation to continue playing after getting 2nd spot in it.) Very nice score though. You do seem to have a knack for getting excellent scores at technically challenging levels (in general of course, but on those in particular). Let’s see whether someone will get 155k+ (won’t be me, in any case not in the near future).

Looks like I did the same as @thee-michelle explained. Pushed potion into the three pigs and the whole rest exploded. I worked for 3 days and couldn’t get above 127k and one lucky shot. I’m sorry I didn’t get a picture of the screen. I didn’t know I got that many points. Here’s a similar picture of how I did it. This one was a little difficult. http://angrybir.de/1lGsmJb

sorry to beat your score, but prompted by it i tried my strategy some more just now (last time, i stopped after having gotten top score) and could improve a bit to 149k- within 15 minutes, after having had five 140k+ scores already. definitely more in it, so i expect higher scores to appear soon.

It’s all good. I figured with the top few scores being as close as they are along with the debris still there that chances were someone would come back and beat my top score. I just read your strategy and tried it a few times. I got close again to my score with your method with quite a bit of debris left. I’m gunna have a try at that strategy for a bit longer and see what I can do. For quite awhile this level tested the patience a bit. :-)

157810 with 2 birds. But you need a lot of patience ;-)

I have been using @vuelva strategy but with a slight tweak: waiting between the 2 birds. Waiting a long time in fact.

Anyway, the first bird is as described. Horizontal and reversed to topple both left structures without touching the pink potion.
The target is 37k+ scores at this point even if more than 40k is possible as noticed by @pointdexter5.

And then you can see that, sometimes, the rightmost pig on the plank has started to roll ever so slowly to the left. After almost two minutes – so bring a book or something – it is touching the big pig.
Here is a screenshot with the trajectory of the first bird, a 42k score and the final configuration of the 4 pigs. Note to self: in this case the second bird was an epic fail…

So the pigs are now close enough to all get a whiff of the pink potion, provided that the tricky shot is sending the potion directly into the big pig.

It doesn’t guarantee a 150k+ score but it helps to have four inflated pigs spreading the damages all over the level.

Here is a screenshot with the four inflated pigs.

And the resulting damages for my best score.

And this is the highscore screenshot.

Hope it helps.

It does help, thanks @asher.

Followed your strat and after few unfruitful attemps I eventually ended up with a good destruction and top score of 160k. :) Key to very high scores on this level is of course to activate the 4 pigs with pink potion but also to activate the orange one on the right side.

Final result for my top score looks as follows
