Angry Birds Short Fuse Level 28-8 Walkthrough

One strategy for Angry Birds Short Fuse level 28-8 is to fling the first Blue bird into the pink potion, infecting both nearby pigs. The canister is a bit of a wild card, but sometimes it will do significant damage and help your score. Aim the next Blue bird for the icy base of the right tower, knocking the tripling potion onto the encased piglet below. The score in the video below is 149,720.

One bird.
The first bird let the pink inflated bird pick up the gas tank, which set off and flew around the level destroying everything.

I got lucky and destroyed a lot for my personal best of 170K.

@playdbird, nice one-birder score! But, I believe you meant pink piggie. LOL
Same thing happened to me, except the small pig in the cement cube was still sitting there with that smirk on his face, so I had to use the second Blue to finish him off.

172540/1 as you described.
was playing to make the pig roll a bit to the right before becoming active, so as to lift the small wood from the middle structure that should set off the tank. had had 130k+-destruction 1-birders several times before, but this time the blue potion got kicked to the middle two pigs, replicating both giving 10k extra for 142.5k destruction. just luck, but higher scores are certainly possible this way (destruction of the top-right was not so great).
my best scores until then (170k, several times) had been with 4, with the same 1st, clearing the right side of the platform, activating the potion on the bottom-right pig, and making the top-right structure drop with the 2nd, cleaning up debris (either on the left or on the right of the platform or both, or on top) via appropriate ricochets with the 3rd (score should be something like 130k+ then), and a high arc onto the platform for the 4th. higher scores also possible with that, but probably needs just as much luck (you often have to play suboptimally to avoid that the level times out).

One can get a very decent score using all four birds. Start with the same shot with blue birds as shown on video. If you don’t get a good one-birder, follow with the second shot from the video. Then, even if all pigs are killed, use the last two birds on the remaining debris. I got 165k this way.

@annach, I’m still trying for the 1-bird high score described by the other nesters but in the mean time, I improved my score by a few k by using all four birds as you suggested. Depending on how the debris falls, the Shock Wave bird can earn substantially more than 10k.

Just got a high-scoring 1-birder but it was only 1-k higher than my best 4-birder.

I cannot find a really good working strat here, scores vary enormous. I used all four birds and it seems that the yellow cilinder is the key in this game. Haven’t found the perfect strat yet.

Got my high current score of 163,340 by following everyone’s good tips here. Thank you all! But mainly posting to share a mistake I’ve never made or really thought about before. Accidentally pushed the power-up with my fat finger on my phone. Decided to play it out to see what happened. Did get a big score but now I have to keep track that it isn’t a comparable score to post. Arghgh.

4 bird strategy.
First bird into gap just to the left of the farmost tower. Split the bird and break the glass supporting the right tower and knock the bottle into the bottom pig.
Second bird into pink potion. You’ll usually get two pink piggies.
Third bird to clean up debris on near or far end. Usually no piggies, this is just for points.
Fourth bird into concrete supporting the center structure. Blow it away.

Just scored 175,330 using all four birds. My previous best was 166k with four birds. The increase came about when the potion affected two pigs, the one with glasses and the one in the stone block. My approach was same as decribed by @annach:
1&2 — blue birds same as video. Got all pigs but lot of debris remained on bottom as well as most of structure upper right.
3 — white bird as far as it would go with ricochet up into the atructure upper right.
4 — Shock Wave bird into middle of debris on bottom placed for best effect.
NOTE: last two birds had to be fired fast before the game began to tally points.
I’ll place screen shot in my album.

Daily Challenge. Here’s my video for 171k. As @jwgardenwiz says you need to get lucky with the blue potion and hope that it gets both pigs. I didn’t manage that here! Luck is also needed on the rather random timing-out.

174k/4 Still no doubling up with blue. I have managed to do that a few times but without such good destruction to follow.

176610/all for the daily challenge. played it first to the right (in this case got double triplication), then to the left, bomb to the left with the carcass taking out the (remains of the) top right structure, and then the last in a high arc to (the remains of) the platform. expect 184k+ scores (destruction was sub-par for this score).

Welcome back. Thanks for having a good go. I’m not blessed with getting the double however I may have just get there later.

Do you have a screenshot/aiming point or whatever for the double triplication. I got it three times earlier today but it came to nought. Thanks

By to mock a mockingbird (@vuelva)

no. happened only a few times to me as well; pure luck. twice i was then unlucky with the 2nd or 3rd, but the 3rd time it was okish (although the canister made the platform fall over after the 2nd killing all pigs, i was in time with the 3rd and 4th) i was sending the 1st to the right because a 1st to the left frequently messes up the right side (eg making the potion fall). i used a medium high arc, splitting on descent such that the middle bird hits the glass ball which then hits the potion. hope the pig with the glasses arrives in time without being killed before. infrequent. of my 5 scores above 174k this was the only one having a double-triple (next best 175170).

Used all 4 birds for 175k as others described.
1st blue to the front, then 2nd to the right as in the walkthrough.
The 3rd bird was a bit of a dud, only picked up 3k or so with it, I was just trying to destroy some of the pipe at the front as there are a lot of points in the pipes.
4th the high lob, & got great destruction.

I never got more than 1 pig to triple, but still barely enough for a puppy.

That’s the way a high score should be presented. Very well done @karen68. Others may follow with theirs!

As an aside I was discussing with @bernersenn some of the very and many dodgy high scores on ABN. I try very hard to keep a track of the cheats but it’s not easy. I suggested that any high score or top 10 should only be accepted on the same basis as the Underdog rules. No pictures – no high score. Simples! There are just too many power-up scores being presented here as genuine and then, when proof is required, a screen shot of said high score appears and is then summarily accepted as proof. That’s just rubbish. @admins, if you don’t get a grip of this then our wonderful site is in danger of being just another Game Centre! Sorry to be blunt.

I used the same strategy as described above, the only difference was that the flying rocket completely wiped out the upper part of the right structure on the 1st shot.
A very nice challenge, could continuously improve and finally beat the old highscore. Thanks @karen68 for sharing the video!

180020 with 4 birds.

Indeed starting on the right side like this is a better way to control at least one triplication, and very rarely two.

This happened to me twice, including for this score.

The second shot is on the front as in the video.

Then Matilda is used to clean up a little, either in the front or in the back depending on previous outcomes.

Finally, the last bird is sent to the center as in @steviep147 video.

Here is the final result for the Daily Challenge.

And this is the highscore screenshot.
