161660 with 2 birds. First bird under the planetoid towards the outer part of the gravity field. Late split, goal is to break the glass cell and and continue on through to break little glass piece and continue on through to bust up the back glass cell. 2nd bird through the top side of the planetoid gravity field and shoot into the structure with the goal of hitting a spot that gets it to collapse in on itself. Give it time, it might keep going. Nearly everything gone.

Current high score, but it’s very early. Got 190k with a 1 birder.

First bird over the planet and swing down towards the glass. I split late so that all 3 bluets went between the glass and the wood box on the far lower right. The blues went all the way up and took out a lot of the glass and the rest just collapsed and started to self destruct.

This level reminds me a lot of Danger Zone Level 4 which (before the bug/glitch was fixed) would self destruct with out even flinging a bird. May have to test this level.

Whoops! Followed your strategy @sparty83 & just topped your score – apologies!! Just a tip for other ABN’ers – IF the remaining pieces of glass are still moving after the first bird do not restart as long as the score still rises, this happened to me & then everything just collapsed & gave me 191K

I think I did it like @sparty83? i take it you meant lower LEFT glass not right? I aimed blues about 1/2 way between top of planet and gravity field and split late so blues should go up breaking the glass right to the top. This is where the waiting began. I eventually got bored and left the structure moving slightly at 56k with points slowly rising by 10 to 20 every few seconds. Like @earthbound said,if it’s moving or twitching,leave it! I nipped away to have a shower and checked it about 20 mins later and score was sitting finished at 189,410. Now obviously I don’t know when during that time it finished but 20 mins from 56k to finish isn’t to bad. I agree @sparty83 This does remind me of the Danger Zone level but unfortunately I wasn’t blessed with patience so let me know how this works out lol!!

Well actually @bikkit so does blow drying your hair because I just got another 189k! This time I was watching it happen. The score yet again was in the mid 50’s when it slowed down. What I have noticed is that both times the whole structure is rotating to the left. I may be wrong as I had hair blowing everywhere but I think it did a full rotation whilst crumbling inside. It only took around 5 mins, so for my level of patience that’s great! I’m going to keep at it and try to break the 190k

I used my strat again, the structure started to slowly spin and points slowly started adding up. I put my phone down to get another cup of coffee and when I came back, this is what I saw.

I have noticed that once damaged, the structure begins to rotate (counterclockwise when I send BB above first planet), first slowly, then faster and faster. In some occasion, it then stops, but sometimes starts again (or maybe it always starts again if you are more patient than I were). It had a very large angular velocity in the end, when it completely broke apart for my current best (188k). Maybe the increase of angular velocity was a mere consequence of the conservation of angular momentum law and due to the fact that the structure was becoming more compact as more and more parts were destroyed, but I got the impression that rotation grew way too fast to be compatible with known physics! It seems that the “wires” store some sort of energy during the evolution of the structure till some point, and release this energy quite violenty, which can on some occasion destroy efficiently the structure.

In any case, I am unsure that the instability that makes a one-birder easy was designed on purpose, and I would bet that in the next updates, the structure becomes more stable. Therefore, I recommend to make a save of this version before the one birder becomes much harder to perform.

@sglouk, I noticed that also. It reminded me of Danger Zone level 4 which, when it first came out, would start to slowly self destruct. I was wondering if this level would do that also, but I don’t think it does. See my post just below this.

@sglouk I still can’t make the 190’s but what I have noticed for 1 birdie 180’s is that if the blues only burst through half way up and leave the right hand side (wood,glass,wood) intact seems to trigger the anti clockwise spin. Now I’m not going to pretend to know the physics of this but more often than not,it gets things moving. I’ve stopped trying to get the blues all the way up as it appears too much damage at the start doesn’t help. Do you agree?

@jlz-666
I think that the maximum of damage is obtained when you have as much energy as possible that is stored in these wire like thin metallic parts, as well as in the invisible links between the different “nodes” of the structure (the same holds for DZ-4, actually). If you destroy too many of them at start, it may not be the most efficient, indeed.

No @jlz-666. I do not agree. I find it much better to go all the way to the top. I’ve counted the blocks after completely separating the right side and still had all but four blocks in play. This has led to three 200k+ scores in the last two days. Sorry for sticking my two cents in your discussion @sparty83.

Mine seemed to be stalled, but I just caught something close to an explosion out of the corner of my eye. Finished off quickly after that for 190K

@mvnla2

Yes, you need to shoot one bird. But happens next is probably an instability. If a 185k+ one birder was expected to be so easy, we would not be given 4 birds from start, with such a low (~120k) 3 stars threshold.

Just got 199k now. Someone will probably break the 200k barrier soon.

Btw, someone reported a self igniting tank on 9-7, and I can also confirm this. This could also be added to the list of instable levels, although it does not bring anything interesting to level completion, I think.

No new strategy. I sent the blues as described by @sparty83, that is, over the planet and split them as shown in his picture. Then I left my iPad and went to have breakfast and wash dishes. When I came back about 40 min later I found this terrific score over 200K! So, basically the strategy is: throw the bird, split it and give it about 30-40 min wait, eventually it will work out.

I just now started entering my scores for Brass Hogs and checking the walk-throughs. I got 3* up to Level 14 on my own but now looking for some higher point strategies. (So far I’m going with the daily ‘missions’ instead of paying more to open all the levels at once – this way is fun and keeps the daily freshness of daily new level anticipation…). Anyway, I went through this one rather quickly and didn’t realize it has a self-destructing mode after throwing blues. I’m letting it run right now. It is slowing progressing.

On another Note: @admins – Has anyone had problems with the ‘Mission Board’? On my iPhone, when I click on the Mission Icon in the bottom right of the screen, the board pops up but frequently, it is stalled – meaning when I click on one of the arrows to go to the Mission Level, nothing happens, it is frozen. Even the X at the top right won’t work so I have to close out the game totally and go back in – still same thing happens. I will wait for a while – sometimes a couple of hours and go back in and it will work. Important thing is that if you want the credit for completing a Mission level, you have to play it after you click the arrow and go to that level. You won’t get credit for it if you just close out the board, open up AB Space and go directly to that level that was shown in the Missions for the day…I did that and when I went back to check on Brass Hogs, it had reset and given me a different level immediately and no credit for the one I just completed one with getting more points on a previous Space level. Very frustrating. Not sure if I should report to Rovio or not. Possible that Rovio does know of this bug and will be fixing it on the next update.

Very interesting level indeed.I should add that this level do not belong to the category of “unstable” or even “self-destructing” ones,it’s all the idiotic piggies’ fault,building a space platform right in the middle of a gravitational field(read:black hole)without even a rocky surface to settle anything down.Ever fathomed how they began the construction?
One piece came(plummeted into the field,float around the center due inertia,settled),another pig/piece came,two objects bang bang,both gone.

Didn’t hit anything special….like I said, I avoided doing much damage, and avoided hitting glass blocks. I did go over the top, not underneath for the initial shot. My opinion is that all those blocks grinding together makes the points. So….. anything you can do to avoid early points is a plus. As long as the final result is getting down to no blocks.

https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/sglouk/album/picture/13807/

A few figures: I let the level run for 9h30min. Score was 161k after eight hours, slowly climbing. Initial shot cut the structure into two parts (6 + 3 cells), through the three aligned glass links. Score reached 173k one hour and a half later and seemed to stall for 15 minutes. There was then one surviving pig more or less protected by its “cell”, on top/at the surface of a fairly large chunk of debris (well, an very large chunk of debris given the score I had already obtained). I then used a 2nd bird to finish and everything crumbled in a few seconds.

Yes, this 229k was a two birder, which means that 240k could be achievable in principle. The two things you need are:
* a very slow crumble that does not stall
* one pig that survives till the end
I woud say that the second condition is the hardest to achieve, and I may have been lucky that the pig survived till that point.
