This is an alternate strategy that has gotten me into 2nd place so far (just behind @romo, who is tough to beat), but I think more points are possible. Launch LB out of the gravity well, and then just nick the ice asteroid so that it touches the nearest asteroid near its bottom. You can try the shot going below the two larger asteroids in between, between them and the two smaller ones, or above them all. The angle is easier to obtain the farther out you are, but you can’t see LB when it’s far out, and most often you hit something in between before your target. If you’re very lucky, the ice asteroid sends two pieces to the surface, one takes out the first pig on the right, and the other takes out the farthest three pigs, just leaving the main structure for big brother.

I was so close to first that I couldn’t stop without trying some (hours) more. I found that all my best scores came when I launched LB at the ice asteroid about 3 seconds after he leaves the gravity field, rather than waiting for a later shot. On my very best score, the right pig and the two on the left were killed by the pieces that fell, so I had to use the 3rd bird to take the pig on the tripod out, but the second shot caused really massive destruction. Combine that shot with a first shot that takes out all three on the left, and there’s definitely at least another 10k points available. For some reason, I forgot to take a screenshot on my best, but I took some on my second best (just 600 points lower), which was a two birder. I’ve posted two showing the results after each shot.

@Romo, @Snoid There are numerous approaches with all those boulders and iceteroids but the first shot I like best takes out all but the middle structure. It’s not the highest scoring, but I like that it’s easily repeatable.

Shoot Lazer Bird to barely escape the gravitational field. If you’re zoomed out this allows you to see him the entire time so there is no counting to three or guessing when to redirect. Just as he clears the first large boulder redirect to hit the large iceteroid 1/3 from the top. This will push him into the small boulder where he explodes with two large fragments destroying the two tripod pigs. The small boulder will be pushed into the gravity field where he destroys the two pigs on the snowballs. Your score should be around 43-44k at this point.

Now the hard part. Shoot a high arc directly at the second story pig in the main structure. Destruction varies greatly. My current top score of 109k won’t last. I’ve had potential scores as high as 116k.

By Snoid (@snoid)Score: 107,330

@rat9 and @romo Rat’s first shot sounds about the same as mine, but as you can see from the first screenshot that I posted, I was not able to get the small boulder to fall, taking out the two pigs farthest to the left; instead the fragment from the iceteroid took them and the tripod pig out. Presumably that’s why his score after the first shot is 2-3k higher than mine. As for the second shot, I tried the high arc shot he describes, but my best result, leading to my highest score, was straight on. It just seemed to connect in a different way. If I hadn’t had to use another bird that round to get the left tripod pig, my score would have been in the 115-117k range. So there’s no reason why you can’t retake first place. Go for it!

@Snoid I’ve had scores in the high 40k range(46-49k) after the first shot but 43-44k is more the norm. My score of 109k was achieved after a low score of 43.5k on the first shot. So much higher scores are possible. 120k???
On the second shot I could get the pigs to die with a straight on shot into the middle structure as you describe but I couldn’t get good point value that way. Both are low percentage completion shots. It’s tough to get that structure to totally collapse.

@rat9 I suppose a score that high is possible, but I don’t think I’m even going to attempt it. I’ll settle for 2nd place. Now let’s see if you can when you get the “new sheriff” email on M2-28! You took away my only 1st in Cold Cuts, and I suspect that that one won’t last long either, but at least it wasn’t a new strategy, just a lucky shot, so I’m not as emotionally “attached” to it.

For the flingers that just want to get three stars there is an easier approach that doesn’t require going outside the gravity field. I’ve had scores as high as 108k with most over 100k. Currently there are only five scores higher than 100k. That’s about to change. Sorry @Snoid. It’s a three birder.

1st shot: Bloated pig at the far right tripod. I like to shoot the lower horizontal wood beam. Make sure nothing is left that obstructs the path of the second shot. Scores 10-12k.
2nd shot: Shoot slightly below the horizontal concrete slab. Scores as high as 80k are possible but low/mid 70k’s are more common. (hint: don’t use full power)
3rd shot: Aim at upper portion of concrete block on the left tripod. The block and bird will kill the snowball pigs and bounce back to kill the remaining tripod pig.

BTW, I must revise my high score prediction for ambitious flingers going outside the gravity field. I now think scores as high as 125k are possible. Go get it @Romo. It won’t be easy. But you like a challenge…right? he he

@rat9 Congrats on the high(er) score. That’s the method that I and probably most people started with, but without your kind of scoring. Then I found the one in the walkthrough, which increased my top score by a couple of k, and finally the outside the gravity field shot that got me into first for an all too brief moment before you and @romo came back to this level. I know that you like a challenge–it brings out your best–but I think I’ve done all that I can too help you in that regard.

*Spoiler Alert* If your name is @Snoid, STOP READING NOW!

Hi @romo
You’re smart to ask about the power level on the second shot. It’s as critical to a high score collapse on the second shot as the aiming point. I shoot at slightly less than medium power.

My aiming point is the white dot in the upper corner of the concrete block directly under the horizontal slab. Maybe a pixel or two above the dot. It’s very touchy. I practiced my second shot by using the Laser bird to remove the 1st pig tripod. I wanted to be ready since the 1st outside the gravity field shot is so difficult.

Your last obstacle to a successful second shot is that pesky wooden horizontal slab from the right tripod pig. Your path to the dot must be clear. You can’t use this shot if the wooden slab is sticking up at an angle from the debris field. I’ve had scores as high as 111k using my practice approach coupled with the third shot at the left side pigs described in the strategy above.

I apologize for being so verbose. I know you must translate this but I wanted to answer your question thoroughly. Two perfect shots can score above 125k. Maybe as high as 130k. Good luck.

P.S. Don’t tell @snoid these tips. We don’t want him taking back his trophy…do we? ha ha ha

@rat9 Thanks for the compliments, even though they were meant for Sglouk. I was wondering where all of these firsts came from.

As for providing you competition, I started AB late and have always been behind, in more ways than one. I quit for about a year when they stopped doing updates for Macs, but finally came back for the new Space levels using my Android phone. I hate having to point LB with my overly large fingers, but with enough repetitions, I’ve found that it has forced me to become better. I’ve gotten far more firsts in Mirror World than anywhere else, several of which neither you nor @romo nor anyone else has taken away yet. It’s probably because there are so few players still going at it, but there are many very good ones like you left, so I do feel like they are achievements, however transient and inconsequential in real world terms they may be. (I’ve always preferred to talk about music or old movies instead of politics, etc., because it’s more fun and just as important in terms of consequence.) I’m not sure if I’ll come back and try this one again, but I do appreciate that you gave one of the most detailed descriptions of your stRATegy to allow someone to try to knock you out of first.

Time for a margarita, and not from the BP! It’s hot here in Tucson.

As far as strategies, I always give at least general info about a new approach. But I hate to remove “all” the discovery fun from a level. But if asked, I have no problem giving down to the pixel descriptions. Btw, I see you ignored the *Spoiler Alert*. ha ha

Hi @rat9
I tried your 2nd shot but it was tremendously difficult for me to adjust aiming point/power so gave it up then came back with @snoid ‘s strat with full power method.

Hi @snoid
With your strat, I realized It can be doable 119k or more.

1st bird : go outer of the gravity and redirected to 10 o’clock of big ice. It went to middle size stone then broken into 3 pieces. Remained middle main structure and left tripod with totally 5 pigs. If most left pig was dead, I could have reached 122k at least when got the best score.

2nd bird : flew to the top/tip of 2nd hollow square stone with high arc & full power. Hard to explain how much ‘high arc’ but will try. Aim to almost gravity line but adjust inner with 1/2 of Terrance’s thinkness. If you flung for try, you can see little part of his head was out of gravity then came in then flew to the stone. Don’t forget to touch the screen while flying over 1st tripod. The Pig will jump up but was never dead. It is just to get more 10’s points. With best shot, I got 96800 with remaining left tripod & 1 pig.

3rd bird : aim to horizontal wood at the bottom of left tripod. I preferred to aim the lower tip/edge of it. Also touch the screen just before hit the wood as to get more points again. Got 109k with remaining last red bird.

Thanks.

WTG @Romo!
I agree that the super high arc can result in a great second shot score (I said so back on Feb 12th) and it’s usable even when the tripod plank blocks the head on approach. But there are no available aiming points which makes it very hard to repeat. So my success rate was miserable.

@romo and @rat9 Both of your scores are exceptional, even though you used entirely different first shots (if I’ve understood you correctly). As for the second, my best (I don’t remember just how many points it got) was just a head-on, full-power fluke that destroyed almost everything. I tried the high arc for a while, but like Rat, had trouble getting repeatable results. I can’t even see the white dot Rat uses to guide his second (my eyes are five years older). And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by! (from John Masefield’s “Sea-Fever” in case you were wondering)

(Romo: did you mean to say 1 or 2 o’clock of the big ice in your first shot? I haven’t been able to figure out how to get it all the way around to 10, assuming 12 is straight up.)

I don’t see any way to get to 10.)

@snoid,

Sorry for the confusion.
You’re right. For easy re-direction, I have touched 10 o’clock of the ice ball which means that LB hits 12:30~1:30 of it.

Thanks,
Romo.

Now, my turn to propose a new strat, albeit a hard one.

Aim LB outside gravitational field. The flatter the trajectory, the better. When LB is “at the right place” (which, of course, is offscreen unless you wan play in portrait mode), aim to the right side of upper small boulder. It should then drift toward 8:00, and you can forget about it (blue line in pic below). LB keeps on along its initial trajectory (green), hits second small boulder almost straight on, but slightly to the left so that it is deflected a hair to the left and gently hits large ice boulder. That boulder falls on planet (yellow). Meanwhile, second small boulder drifted toward 6:30 (red), got caught into gravitational field and ballistically reached snowbase of pigs bivvy. That boulder than may or may not (better if it does) bounce to the right and damage/collapse tripod. In the same time, ice boulder destroys left side of main building. The aim of the maneuver is to get rid of the horizontal stone slab on which rests leftmost pig of main structure (purple). This outcome is *crucial* if you want a 2-birder because stability of this structure is insured by horizontal slabs. 40k is possible, 46k ideal.

This picture summarizes the above:

https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/sglouk/album/picture/26596/

For 2nd shot, high lob so that Terrence crashes on base of main structure. It is crucial the Terrence screams when it lies in between right tripod and rightmost pig of main structure: that pig adds to the weight of the structure and prevents it from collapsing if it is on the floor. It *must* be flying when Terrence impacts the building. As for the pig of right tripod, it is unlikely that it will receive much damage with this shot, so the extra bruise is crucial for a 2-birder.

Almost perfect outcome of 2nd shot is this:

https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/sglouk/album/picture/26597/

“Almost”, because, well, right tripod pig survived. 3rd bird is 99% of the time needed to clean that pig.

This is a hard combination of shot, both of which are low percentage shots, so don’t expect to reach 110k easily, but above pic shows that 127k is possible.
