Angry Birds Space Danger Zone Level 22 Walkthrough

One strategy for Danger Zone level 22 uses an icy variation of the “bloated bird” technique. Send the Ice bird so it exits the atmosphere and detonates the TNT on the extreme right, but do not trigger its ability. The large asteroids will fall into the gravitational field and destroy the main structure. (Note that triggering the ability would make the asteroids brittle.) If not fortunate enough to detonate the lower TNT via debris, use the Blue bird to do so. The score in the video below is 107,830.

I have managed to one-shot it once in what must be hundreds of shots-luckily just scraped a 3*. The tip to freeze the asteroid just causes it to break up and not make it to the bottom of the stack and explode the dynamite there in my experience.

I got mine like video but am proud to have gotten it without help…I was tempted but finally a little piece of stone flew in the gap and ignited bottom tnt for a one birdie. The only thing I did different was with my first bird. I lined the dots up so that he clips the little snow triangle that sits at the top just past the slingshot and it slows him down just a tad and takes him on the right path and explodes just before making contact with the tnt. His explosion ignites the tnt…pretty cool. Only 310 extra points but they all add up.

it is possible to get 3 stars with 2 birds. Follow the video but if the tnt exploded but no debris triggered the tnt, launch the blue bird high in the air then split when it goes down. it is recommended that you break the purple arrow and did lots of structural damage when you launched the ice bird. If the pathway is clear, one or two blue birds will trigger the tnt and clear the level

For a 2 bird shot, line up the first bird so the ghost trail lines up exaxtly with the tippy top of the triangular ice block. Bird will explode space tnt without freezing boulders. Biggest boulder will take out most of pile, then the smaller debris will either push boulder down one last tme to slam it into the lower tnt OR it will break the topmost wood so the hollow cement block can slide into the tnt block and explode it. Lob the second bird so it splits and drops into the cave and tnt there takes out everything else.

Did 50 trial runs – 7 of them got a 3-star, with scores from 101k to 105k. Still haven’t got a 1-bird to do a lucky fall, over 2 hours of attempts

This one is hard. For the first shot, it takes me 20-30 attempts before I get the desired results, i.e., blowing out the center section of the bridge. Looks simple. Ha-ha. The second shot is harder, much harder. There are two variables that affect the outcome. The first is entry into the lower planet’s gradational field. The second – the one I can’t seem to do consistently, is when to split the blue bird. The bird I need is either doing a face plant into the planet or heading off into the vastness of space.

For me, this is one of those levels where just trying and trying and trying eventually will get you “lucky”. Most of the times the rock just fell down on the structure; if it did fall then it mostly didn’t explode the TNT and in the very rare cases it did explode, I needed BB to finish it. This kind of “luck” shouldn’t be in the game, in my most humble opinion of course :-)

Can….not….get…the…1-birdie…or…even…average. So in an attempt to apease the AB gods I’ll offer up some alt strategies that I don’t see in here already. Obviously this is just for the three stars and not big points as both are 2 bird strats.

1. My orginal 3 star strat: First lob ice high to land just above the mushroom, freeze the wood blocks, blow the TNT safe and clear that part of the level. Very easy and repeatable. Second, much trickier/lucky, shoot the BB towards the TNT/asteroid clump & split so 1 bb hits the asteroid TNT, and another slides into the chute to detonate the rest. 100+ and actually requires some skill.

2. First shot like the one-birdie videos and hope the asteroid breaks through to the TNT safe. There really doesnt seem to be superior aim needed for this as long as you hit the TNT/asteroid. If lucky enough to clear that part, second shot is real easy. Aim BB on the same path as ice and split anywhere over the snow pillow just past the ice triangle. One bb will make it into the chute & boom. Usually 100+ to 103+.

May I pleeeeze have my one-birdie now?

I think that the small metal block has to stick to a piece of wood, so it does not break by hitting the big boulder, or get pulled northwards. It then has to hit the tip of the metal triangle at the edge of the cave, and 111k easily, *sarcasm* all thanks go to @amslimfordy for the strategy:)

By swellD (@swelld)Score: 116,040

Alright I have not so much a different strategy but I have specific tips about the way to attack this level. I have tried and tried the bloated bird technique with the best results requiring me to use two birds and an ulcer, and my remaining hair quite a bit grayer. I now believe the top score had the lucky fortune of taking out the first mushroom which is all I had left which would have given me a score of 118650 and the top score..
Here follows is the method. Ice bird just over the sno-cone as close as possible without hitting it. As the icebird approaches the TNT manually detonate so it it DOES freeze the triangle that normally careens off the boulder but DOES NOT freeze the big boulder. This is the key. When I can freeze that triangle only I have about an 80% success rate of exploding the TNT. That does not however generate a 1 bird clear at the same rate but significantly increases the frequency. Since I figured that out I went from 108k to my current score in just under an half hour. The timing of the manual explosion is the difference . If you cause the triangle to travel across intact to hit the orbiting pig you have exploded too soon but you do have the right line so don’t give up.
Additionally I play on an iPad. Just before the TNT there is a mine design in the background. The place to explode is at the edge of this mine that the ice bird crosses closest to the TNT. I hope that was sufficiently clear and helpful for those of you that still have intact devices after attempting this level!

Observations on a very frustrating level…..
1st If the boulder is not setting off the TNT after repeated tries, turn off Space completely and then turn it back on. Just resetting, or even starting a different Space episode does not seem to work. I have no idea why this is, but (at least on PC) it makes a big difference.
2nd That small square metal or concrete block is the key. It is the trigger for the one birder in both Slim’s video and E-Star’s video. Where that square block is when the TNT goes off seems to be critical. Note in E-Star’s video, the boulder sets off the TNT on the top corner. In Slim’s video the TNT doesn’t go off until the boulder bumps it from the side. The TNT almost never goes off if the small square block hits the boulder. If that is happening to you, that is when you need to do the turning off Space thing.
3rd I have tried every combination of hitting the snow peak and going over the snow peak and it doesn’t seem to make much difference in the end result. Almost all my shots (with the TNT going off) end up almost identical regardless of how the initial shot was made. I can never get the TNT to go off like in E-Star’s video, and I think it is going off just a little later than in Slim’s video. I have no idea how to change that. For me the small square block flies up and lands on the blue peak, (originally covered with snow) not the stone triangle as in the videos. There is very little variation. It always lands on the same place on that peak and bounces to the area between the boulder and the stone triangle.
4th I have not managed a one birder. My 107K score is a two birder. If anyone has any suggestions I would welcome them. I understand repeating over and over to get a better score, and I am not one to complain about the difficulties some seem to have with a PC as opposed to other platforms, but……. Maybe I need the whine factor.

@stocktoad this level has been my 1-bird nemesis since Space came out over a year ago. Your fate is totally determined by a tiny little concrete block, & I’ve decided it’s all about one thing – luck. That little piece of concrete has to still be on top of the right half of the large structure when the TNT blows, & the explosion has to only lift it a bit so it falls down into the gap. Hours & thousands of birds have not shown me any method to get all these things to happen with any reliability. I would agree wholeheartedly with whining.
