Here is our 3-star walkthrough strategy for Angry Birds Space Beak Impact level 8-28. The strategy shown yields a score of 98,460.
Although Rat was mostly known for his innovative and hard-to-repeat strategies, he has nothing against improving others’ strats, sometimes raising them to an unexpected level. Will you do better than him?
This one is all about debris and getting the moldy asteroids to detonate. I’ve been timing the spin so that just before the one of the spokes points directly at the aiming dots, I fire. Results may vary though. 105k
Need I even say what strategy I used? :) This makes my 4th high score from a @dmsral strategy. I’m ashamed to admit didn’t even see the flux/antimatter canister until I read his tip. I’d been punting the bottom boulder-on-a-stick into the green rocks.
My only change was firing a bit later -when the spoke’s center passes the aiming dots. This timing sends debris toward all the green rocks, especially the hard-to-hit top center one. Use that one as your guide. If debris hits the gray rock beside it, you fired early. If debris falls into the grav field, you fired late.
Results indeed may vary, but his strategy is highly repeatable. In 3 attempts, I got 105k, 106k and 108k. Can’t ask for more than that.
A side note: if you wait ~2 mins , the pig wheel suddenly stops turning. Makes it easy to hit, but gives you an awful score.
Of all the stalkers I’ve ever had, you’re the nicest one, @Kelani. Just spent 30 minutes trying to get the lead back without any luck. I think that score may hold up, nice shooting!
Heee hee @kelani is a stalker haha:) @dmsral nice to see you and thanks for great tips as always:)
I’m following kelani following you. Haha:)
Would love to see you pop into the pub (bloated pig) sometime drink on me of course :)
Complete and utter fluke! I messed up and threw the bird too low into gravity field. It knocked one of the arms off the spinning contraption and continued on towards the bottom right green asteroid. I was just about to restart when the green exploded,igniting the next one up. After that it was all just a mess of lovely carnage! The spinning thingy at this point had spun closer to the gravity field so when it exploded it set off the top and bottom left hand green asteroids. Don’t think I should put this in as “alternative strategy” because it was a mistake but I’ll try aiming for that bottom right green asteroid and will report back if I can get it to work as a reliable method.
@jlz-666, Oddly enough, that is also how I got my score of 106,510. I never bothered to post mine either, mostly because people were getting higher scores aiming for the anti-matter canister. Perhaps it is a more viable strategy than we realized, though it needs a disclaimer of “your mileage may vary”
Oh they certainly vary @lyrian! I’m still trying to get this one to work but although I’m not having much luck (managed a 98k) it does have potential. Even if it has been a one off fluke it’s great fun to watch! One almost sure fire method of getting it all to kick off is aim red pretty much straight on and fire him just when one of the legs are pointing at the sling. By the time red exits the atmosphere the leg is at 7o’clock. Red and debris should be pushed towards the green asteroid. I’m going to keep at it ;)
@jlz-666, I’ve been working on it too, I managed to break 107k, but nothing near as spectacular as your first score.
Great Strat @jlz-666 improved my score 2k right off the bat by reading your above ‘mistake’ lol
Now that I’ve scrolled down and read your ‘refined strat I’m going to keep trying it:) thanks:)
Thanks @jlz-666. I did mark this as alt strat since it certainly qualified as one for me. Second shot already upped my previous highscore by 2k and then ~99 shots later I got a further +7k and the current top2 spot. Admittedly the scores are wildly varying though.
Apparently the alt strat tick doesn’t function on a reply. Duh…
Nice shooting @micromax! Super happy you proved it can be done this way. I see @kathy improved as well so I guess it should now be an alternative strategy. @admins is it possible you could turn this thread blue? Cheers :)
Sorry about your Top Score @jlz-666. But I couldn’t have beat you without your GREAT strategy.
And thanks to your mistake, the kennel on this level is now forever closed. *snicker* It’s theoretically possible to score higher, but I don’t think it can be done. I don’t know how my shot could have gone any better. All pigs were irradiated, all boulders exploded, both green masses on the planet were hit, and most of the wood and chains were destroyed. It reminded me of dominos toppling over. This hit that which pushed those until there was nothing left. In other words, I got very lucky. But it was fun to watch.
BTW, The only variation from your strategy was I released red bird slightly before the leg was pointing at the sling.
Thanks and keep those “flukes” coming @jlz-666.
Pffft…..what a lovely Christmas present @rat9 Do you steal candy from little kiddies to? You couldn’t see me with just 1 top score in space? *sigh* Ah well,congrats on your unbeatable top score ;) I’ll try my hardest to keep my flinging messy!
Ha ha ha ha ha…It’s not my fault @jlz-666. It’s @Romo‘s. Young Whippersnapper!!! He keeps beating me in Beak Impact forcing me to find points in places I had left long ago. I hope he doesn’t get ahead of me again. I’ve about run out of places to steal points. Almost all my scores are now in the top four.
Let me know if you see some kiddies with points I can take. lol
@comex666 Great tribute to a great Man! Thank you for posting this tribute to a great friend and Flinger 🐣
in memory of a great man @rat9
Concur, @comex666 and great video tribute to @rat9 stRAT, added 12K to my score!
Woot!! Thanks @comex666 for that great video! I improved by 5k and right behind you on the Improved list,🐣
@jlz-666, when you say too low, can you be more specific? I’ve managed to improve 3740 on iPad during this Challenge to 107000 with some decent bouncing or rebounding of explosions but lots of wood remained.
I’m hoping if you can clarify how much lower your Oops was that perhaps us mere mortals can benefit, as I’m stuck on 107000 & need quite a bit more for Top 50
Hi @justpast40 – I don’t have the best score but I have uploaded a pic for you to see the trajectory that worked for me a couple times for scores in the 111K+ range :
And might I just add…that when I came here to check out the Challenge…all I did was read the first sentence of @jlz-666 comment which was and I quote = (copied and pasted, hahah):
“Complete and utter fluke! I messed up and threw the bird too low into gravity field. It knocked one of the arms off the spinning contraption and continued on towards the bottom right green asteroid.”
I didn’t even finish reading her comment nor any others and just aimed towards the bottom arm…and on my first fling and just like that….I improved my score from 106K something to over 111K!!! I hope that shows how much faith I had in your “accident” @jlz-666 hahahah…but it’s true! Only after my own apparent fluke have I tried to aim according to the other comments by you and @rat9 ;-)
I have since improved just slightly to 111820 by aiming pretty much straight ahead and as soon as one of the “legs” is passing my trajectory dots, I release Red.
I’m sure by days in we’ll have more details but I hope this helps for now ;-)
Thanks @lesleyg AngryAdvisor. It was the part of your post about releasing as the legs passed the trajectory dots, combined with your pic & @gladvold video that just got me 111900…..woohoo I’m #9 now. I exoect to fall out of Top 10 if I don’t improve more, but I won’t fall out of Top 50 : -). AngryAdvisor, your description was so good I just bumped you 1 spot … that’s sort of rude after all your help …. sorry
Hahah @justpast40 :-) No worries…I fully expect to continue being bumped ;-) I’m just glad it was able to help you…nicely done my friend!
Since that “share your gameplay”-function showed up, even old men like me can produce replays. So if anyone is interested:
Thanks @jlz-666, it seems several have had success following your strat, so I would definitely call it a reliable alternative. But I believe @rat9 indeed has closed the kennel!
@gladvold Thanks for the fab video,it shows exactly what happens. Ultimately it’s all about the luck from the fallout of the explosions that decide whether you’re in the low 100’s or mid teens with exactly the same rinse/ repeat shot. Thanks for the visual! Wish I had that function. Great score btw!
@justpast40 I tried to elaborate on the accident a bit lower down in the thread but thank you @lesleyg for stepping in and helping out! (At work so couldn’t get in here earlier) I haven’t tried this one again and don’t think I’ll bother as can’t see how rats score can be beaten unfortunately. I’m just really happy that my slip of the flinger turned out to be the way to go! Hopefully I’ll still be in top 10 by end of play. GL everyone.
@jlz-666, I think I did eventually read your later clarification about when to release, but this old lady suffers from what some here in the US call “CRS,”‘or “Can’t Remember Stuff” there’s another word we impolitely use instaed of stuff, but this is a family friendly site so I can’t post it.
Like you jlz-666, I wish I had the capability to create videos like @gladvold.
I’m still trying for a score in the teens, but my 111900 may be it. When red hit the bottom right green mutating stuff a piece flew off into the middle of the contraption exploding the capacitor. It was perhaps 5% skill & 95% luck.
Lol @justpast40 I also suffer quite frequently from “CRS” although I tend to say it the other way ;)
@jlz-666 – You’re welcome ;-) I’m glad your finger slipped too as it’s definitely the way to go…but I have to agree with you that I also think @rat9 has definitely closed the kennel with his awesome score! I don’t think you have to worry about being bumped from the top 10, You have an awesome score too!
It was pretty funny though that I literally just read your first few words, then haphazardly flung towards the bottom arm and got over 111K on the first try before reading any further details! of course since then, when I am actually trying and aiming, I’ve only got over 111K one other time so I think I’ll have to call it done too ;-)
Hi @gladvold. Never seen anything about a “share your gameplay” function, so don’t know what it is. I clicked on your link anyway, as I’d love to see your clip, but it doesn’t play. The everyplay opens, and the still image at the start of your clip appears, but then just a black circle with a blue bar going around – like it’s trying to load. Tried 3 times but nothing. Do you have to be a subscriber to view perhaps? Tx
Hi @peejaydee27 Oh, I thought everyone had that Everyplay function now in Space, but obviously it’s not so! I play Space version 2.1.3 on an android phone. In a recent update it was simply there! It automatically makes a replay you can choose to save and share whenever you finish a level. Very simple. Maybe someone else has some more info about in what versions it can be found etc?
For viewing, you don’t have to be a subscriber. But actually when I try viewing my own replays on my phone, I sometimes have the same problem. On PC however, it works fine.
@micromax I have noticed you have shared several Everplay videos lately. If I may ask, do you perhaps have more knowledge about this?
Tx @gladvold. It did finally work! I just left it with the “wheel of death” spinning, and after about 6 or 7 minutes it came up. So many thanks – brilliant. All I have to do now is try and replicate it!!!
You’re welcome @peejaydee27! Possibly the video download is simply quite big and takes its time!
@gladvold @peejaydee27 Sorry I noticed your question only today! Like @rat9 said, the @mention system seems to be failing.
As to Everyplay, yes, I had same sort of problems with my first ever video. I was uncertain if it was playable at first but then someone kindly let me know it was ok. In a day or two it was working nicely for me as well and has been ever since with the exception of one failed upload. My connection is a stable wifi one which may help in this case.
@mcmoha – thanks for the input. Just checked settings and java script is enabled (using Safari on iPad). I was probably just being impatient. Internet is slow here sometimes too.
@peejaydee27 There’s not much info to be found, but @sweetp shared some in the forum:
So it’s only on Android for the time being. It’s a bit strange that there is not more discussion on the topic. I hope there are plans to implement this feature to all platforms and AB games in the future! @jlz-666 @justpast40
It’s not even all android devices. I have 2 android tablets, old one has android 4.1.2 and no everyplay, new one had originally 4.4.4 and evryplay which was lost after update to 5.0.2 and gained again with absp 2.1.3 update. Android 4.2-4.3 are unknown but since they are closer to 4.1 than 4.4 technically I expect no everyplay…
Btw @gladvold which version of android are you playing on?
Thanks for your info @micromax! I’m using a Nexus 5 with Android 5.1
Ok – good to know the info @gladvold. Still didn’t get it for the challenge, but it’s a fun to play level I think, so I’ll be back!
@gladvold and I always thought you were a young boy! Strange how our perceptions of people here turn out to be wrong! But I suppose your idea of an old man might be different to mine….
Anyway, thanks for the video, I was shooting far too low, but it’s nearly bedtime for me, so a little late to wedge open the kennel door. Of course, taking a top score from @rat9 is nearly impossible, but so, so, glorious (in my dreams)
Ha ha! Well not that old really, but old when it comes to electronic devices and such I guess! I just checked out your profile @hunnybunny and hey, it turns out we are actually born in the same year!
Thanks for that super video @gladvold! I’m not getting the results but it is beautiful to behold. You guys are killing me. hahahaha. I did improve by 3k using tips by @dmsral, but the bigger score and destruction has eluded me so far. I swear I’m releasing just right and hitting that spoke the same but Red gets in the way when one of the bursts leaves the radioactive sludge glob. Thanks also to @lesleyg for the screenshot. I’ll keep on flinging but will probably have to go to sleep before this challenge is done. Happy Flinging everyone! I do think Mr. @rat9 may be holding this Trophy for a while longer.
Well Zippidy Do Dah! I wasn’t even trying to leverage that wonderful whine factor! But it served me anyway! After above post, I flung again, and this time I GOT IT. Okay not for a puppy so @rat9, you are still safe. But I did increase from 105 to 114k! Love my Whine! ;-) At least I will rest well tonight knowing I finally got some improvement on a Space Challenge.
You’re welcome @gypsybird ;-) I’m glad I could help you a bit…I see you got yourself a great score! Nicely done ;-)))
@rat9 – Congrats on keeping your Top Spot with that awesome, untouchable score! (btw rat…I too only got one notification on this page…strange?)
You are always most helpful @lesleyg! You have posted many fine strategies and tips that help a lot of us on the nest.
@gypsybird – Thank you ;-) You’re too kind! You have helped many of us too…especially when you get scores like this!!! Your sheer determination to get what you want shines through…which also helps others see their potential…You go Girl :-D
Like taking candy from a really big baby.
LOL. Careful ‘Templeton’ (@rat9), you could end up with a big stinky rotten egg. Of course, Charlotte may weave a web documenting your Adventures in Space (including any incident with an exploding smelly egg).
Everyplay doesn’t work anymore, here’s the video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/liKJZketydU
Has anyone noticed right when this level starts, you hear the sound of glass/ice breaking? I thought it might be some piece of ice that breaks and starts the wheel turning, but I never see any debris. I’d love to know what causes that sound.
Also weird, if you get the antimatter/flux capacitor to fall to the planetoid, it’ll sit there spinning for a few revolutions, then defy gravity and float back into space. Once it reaches the edge of the grav field, it’ll fly pretty fast to the far right and back again. Weird little canister we have there.
@kelani, I rarely play with the sound on anymore – it ‘bother’s people. LOL. After reading your post from June tonight, I turned it up for this level and yes, it does sound like glass breaking at the beginning of the play. Not sure if it is just part of the musical effects or if it is coming from off-screen.
@gypsybird What? I’ve got another top score on the chopping block again? But I just had one less than a week ago. Whaaaaaaaa!
I wonder why I didn’t get any of the numerous @mentions in this thread. Something’s not right. I did get one from @gypsybird at 5:47 but that was it. I count at least a half dozen others.
Hey @rat9. Your score is safe from me but I did get pretty close! I feel honored to get this close to your “tail”! You are still the Reigning Space Commander.
If you want to see the King in action, look at the mirror site. It’s what I’m currently playing.
Who da King? ha ha
Mr. @rat9…the Mirror World is a major challenge – I’m not finished with all those just yet. I will go follow King Rat’s work soon enough. I do hope you are kind enough to leave us struggling flingers with some helpful tidbits!
Awesome score @gypsybird. There’s a lot of awesome scores on this challenge. Is someone selling flingin’ secrets?
Thanks @micromax. Tried to respond to you twice earlier using the Reply button but they didn’t register for some reason. I understand now about everyplay, so hopefully it will become available for iOS too. I’ll try the level again sometime as it is fun to play. In the meantime I’m chasing your top score in today’s challenge haha! Don’t worry, you’re probably safe enough from me :))
I aimed low to graze the gravity field and play a billiard shot on the rock which heads due east to explode the green crystals for a one birder.
@pauliboy thanks for posting that, I’ve tried that a few times today, good to know it actually works! I’ll have to give that one a little more effort and persistence. the regular way isn’t doing me any good 🐣
any chance you got a screenshot of the trajectory @pauliboy ?
Thanks @kathy; this is an example of the trajectory, but you will see there is a surviving piggy in this example. I knew I didn’t get a top score so didn’t screenshot my new challenge score when it happened. But for my one bird clearance the only green crystals left on the screen was at the bottom. I was pleased to post a new strat but not good enough to beat @rat9 – as @stocktoad posts below: maybe tomorrow (or today?)
oohh My So sorry for the late response @pauliboy
I appreciate your reply and the screenshot 😎
I’ve got as good as I’m going to get now, thank you for the help
I believe our beloved Rat9’s memory will live long up there with that Trophy next to his name 👼
Well……..the rat9 tribute is a great thing. However…..apparently I have already given my best flings on these levels, hence you haven’t heard from the toad since this started. I thought today might be different. Flung quite a few birds and finally got one that looked like a winner! Well……. my previous best score was 110,350 and when the space dust settled…. my new score was 110,350. Exactly the same. Maybe tomorrow.
Has anyone noticed that you can partially “inflate” the green stuff in the bottom right if you don’t hit it hard enough to explode? Weird. It’s prevented me from getting good destruction with the first bird quite a few times now.
