Angry Birds Space Pig Dipper Bonus Level S-15 Walkthrough

Angry Birds Space Pig Dipper bonus level S-15 is unlocked by 3-starring levels 6-11 through 6-20 of Pig Dipper. One strategy is to send the Egg between the anchor and water on the western planet. Trigger the wormhole below the central anchor. Slowly, the boats will fall into gravitational fields and explosions. If all three boats are cleared with one shot, 3 stars should be yours! The score in the video below is 130,460.

Raft and Anchor Glitch

Current Version Status: v1.5.2 on iOS still allows the glitch to operate properly.

Below is a video demonstrating the “Raft and Anchor” glitch, first noted by @annach and taken a whole new level by @kinkykiwi (just check out her score!). While the video below does not yield many points, it’s a proof of concept that if the raft survives for a decent amount of time, high scores are possible. For reference in the paragraph below, I call the three boats B1 (north), B2 (east), and B3 (south). The “Raft” is attached to B1.

The glitch is a bit rare, but repeatable to some standard. Fling the Egg through the water south of the first planet, triggering the wormhole as soon as it touches the TNT. The key to the glitch occurring is having the raft shoot hard eastward, hitting an invisible wall it seems and slowly falling to the northern planetoid. The most notable way that this happens is when the anchor of B2 pulls the anchor of B1 while drifting into the northern gravitational field. Points accrue by the anchors slowly pushing on the raft. In the video below, I believe points accrue too fast, causing the raft to structurally fail very quickly. With a bit of “Kiwi Luck”, much higher scores are possible.

We encourage you to adjust the viewing settings of the video below. Since the action occurs behind the scores in the top-right corner, viewing the video in full screen and adjusting the resolution to its highest setting (720p HD) is advised. You may need to view the video directly on YouTube to change some of these settings.

Disclaimer: Any score in excess of 160,000 will require definitive proof, at least a comment and a screenshot, but possibly more at administrative request. Any score not meeting these requirements will be removed and, if abused repeatedly, the user will be blocked from the leaderboard. Any score in excess of 170,000 qualifies for the Anchors Away badge (subject to above requirements). For a list of such users and their original scores, see our list here.

Something weird happend when I played this bonus level. After the first egg, two anchors and a pig on a little piece of wood landed on a small planet (asteroid) in the upper right corner. They were going around again and again, and the points were accumulating as this continued. I waited for about 20 minutes hoping the pig will die and the level will finish, but it wouldn’t finish and the score was going higher and higher. Finally, I lost my patience and sent the second egg to that asteroid. Luckily, it killed the pig and the level ended with 160K. If I had more patience and waited for several hours, I could get a very huge score. I hope my score is considered to be legit, as this was not any worse than leaving the device overnight to get a zero-birder (that had been done on some levels in the past and considered legit).

@golda8, I also was experiencing the same dilemma as you. Luckily the pig on a board with two anchors died after about three minutes. This removed the internal conflict I was enduring. Ironically I had just read your post and had the same thing occur on my fifth fling. It must not be too hard to duplicate. Makes me wonder about some of the scores above 140K that will show up now.

P.S. I only had 135K when my pig died.

This is a glitch Rovio needs to fix FAST!!!!!!

I’m not sure if either of you played the Angry Birds Friends Winter Tournament (on facebook) but there what I thought was a major glitch also. There were cannons that shot snow balls. If things fell just right, the cannons would just shoot snow balls and rack up points. This happened on many levels over several weeks. It looks like this may be something similar. I haven’t seen it yet, but I am also below ave so I will be playing it more to improve my score.

If this is truely a glitch, look to see an update in a few days.

By Liam

Yeah, and that Facebook winter thing with the cannons had another score continuation trick. If the cannons were still accumulating points after all the pigs were gone, holding a bird back on the sling let it go on and on until something finally stopped scoring. I’ve not seen that in any other AB levels.

That can happen on any of these fast moving levels @annach. I don’t think that is a game glitch as in the well known ‘unstable/collapsing’ levels. That was just one of those lucky things where the anchors kept moving around the mini-asteroid above. I had the little piggie on the piece of wood land up on the top too but alas, no anchors went with him so he just sat there laughing until the next egg knocked up more debris and wiped off his grin.

@mvnla2 – I have gotten it to begin a few times now, aided by the second walkthrough video. Score always stopped lower than my non glitch best. I can do it in a few different ways, the easiest is as demonstrated in the video, goal is to “crack the whip” with the raft shooting to the edge of the screen, then dropping slowly to the planet. I have done this on both the upper and lower right planets, the downside to the lower planet is that if counting stops with pig still alive, I have not found a way to get anything down there to take him out. On the upper planet if this happens, you can get an egg there directly by just missing the upper edge of the rock with the anchor hanging off it, or by “S” ing through the gravitation of the two middle planets, starting by going below the first one and staying out of the water all the way around.

The other way I have triggered the glitch is with the traditional “over top the first planet approach” settling on the upper TNT. This time the TNT on the upper boat went off, sending the raft to the top of the screen, inside the upper gravitational field, then drifted down to the planet.

Good luck with this one!

144300 I don’t know if I should be happy I tried on my own before coming here. I sent the egg around just like video only I never touched it…it finally sank to the bottom and sent all the boats flying to the other two planets. Good Luck if you try this.

By Liam

I sent the egg about half way through the first water field, nestled it against the bottom TNT in the second water field, and triggered the ability. Sometimes it gets the big iceteroid and it in turn destroys some other things. 146520, not a top score, but I’ll live with it.

Every time I get one of the pigs being rolled around by the anchors, it only counts by 10. I don’t have the patience to wait to see if it gets one of the really large scores. Maybe when I have a good book to read.

By Liam

Forgot to add, it flings the pile(s) of stone upwards into the boats and other obstacles, and then gravity does it’s thing.

I did this on my iPhone 4s so the stars in the background that i use for markers may be a little different.

the screen shot shows markers of what needs to happen. (Image here)

Starting from the left i am numbering the in air- boats with anchors B1-B2-B3

The first thing i did was to fling an egg to the south side of the first water planet with the anchor hanging into the top of it.

when i zoom right out i have a bright star just under the tip of the green bushy plant and i plan for my egg to zoom past it about 1/2mm under said star. as soon as the egg lands behind the TNT I tap the screen to make it explode.( red marker )

I am not to sure what went where at this point but what i do remember is …

B3 ( green marker) got pushed into the water planet on the right hand side bottom of screen.

B2 ( blue marker right side ) got pelted with a load of pebbles from 2nd water planet and started to make its way into the top right hand corner planet.

The anchor of B1 ( blue marker left side) also got pelted with a few pebbles and this pushed the anchor to get in the path of the anchor of B2, which turns the pig end of boat B1 to face 12 O’clock

B2 is now being pulled into the planet and is gathering up speed.The tip of B1 is now entering the planet and is starting its descend quite quickly.

The anchor of B1 snap’s the chain which is holding the little pig afloat on the life raft( left side of B1)
Said raft flies and i mean really flies the the pink marker on the right hand side of top planet But it hits a entity that really slows the descent of the pig on life raft.
At the same time a triangle of wood does the same thing but it lands on the pink marker on the left hand side of the planet.

this allows the 2 anchors that are spinning around the planetoid of the planet to slow right down to a snail’s pace and when the wood and life raft land they stand a better chance of being pushed around and gaining points rather than being squashed.

thats all i can remember but i hope it helps

Okay, after I posted that, I tried a little experiment. alternating flinging the egg over, and under the first planet and allowing it to self detonate 25 times each way. My aiming point on the upper side was about midpoint between the hanging anchor and the water’s surface, and on the lower side it was the bright star about midway between the edge of the gravity and the water.

Results surprised me a bit, I cleared the level 8 out of 25 tries to the upper side with a high score of 142k, and an average of 134k. On the lower side, I cleared the level 12 out of the 25 tries, with a high score of 140k, and an average of 132. In none of the attempts did I experience the “glitch”.

Update

As a few members have noted (first by @annach, taken to a whole new level by @kinkykiwi), there is a little bit of a glitch in this level. That said, I have a video of the glitch occurring that will be uploaded soon. My score is terrible, but it’s a proof of concept that if the raft and pig survive for long enough, your score can keep climbing.

Also, thanks to a lot (and I mean A LOT) of evidence from kinkykiwi, her score is deemed permissible on the leaderboard.

@amslimfordy Your site, your rules. But I am a bit disappointed. I think it would be more fair to cap the score. Same with other levels where a glitch can give you over 10k extra points. All the more so because these glitches are generally only temporary. Danger zone level 4 comes to mind.

There are different kinds of glitches. When a random 10k is added to your score for no reason, that’s not fair. Or the Jellybean glitch, which is a system error that causes a level-wide explosion.

But this is a part of the level itself — like the Fruity Buffet Glitch, or the Santa Hat Glitch, or even self-destructing levels like Airfield Chase 10-15. We allow all of these scores.

I was quite skeptical about the huge scores on this level, but they are adequately documented and repeated to show they are in fact “legitimate”. Unfortunately, their magnitude threatens the integrity of game scores, and far more than any power-up. There have been other levels where glitches allowed for unusual scores (original Christmas levels with “magic pixels”), but their impact was limited, and not potentially infinite like the level 22 glitch is.

I would like to make the following suggestions / recommendations on how to deal with this level.

Rovio: Fix the bug and zero out the player’s score on this level. Also consider capping the score at a reasonable number, say 160,000, to allow for great normal scores and clip any glitch scores off.

ABN: Isolate this level from the totals until Rovio issues a fix. Also alert users to this glitch and request users only post non-glitch scores. Also consider capping the scores.

Players: Play this level as desired, don’t let the go wild if you do encounter the glitch. Kill it and move on. (Personally, I haven’t encountered it yet, but I will kill it if I do to preserve my non-glitch score.)

Comments, critiques and alternatives are welcome.

Well, I like @cosmo2503 was wondering about an upper limit on the level. Maybe Rovio was smart and capped individual levels at 1 million to avoid issues like this? No such luck I got the glitch and let it run to over 1 million and it was still going. I intentionally flubbed the shots to fail the level but achieving it again is easily done, but what is the point? Do I let it run for a week (7 million+) a month (30 million+) a year (365 million+)?

What are the point of leaderboards if I can just play a single level and let it run and be in “1st place”?

In gamecenter, the top hacked scores there are the largest single value of a BIGINT variable in an SQL database 9,223,372,036,854,775,807. Assuming you get 10 points per second here, and the same limit applies to this level score, you could achieve a “legitimate” highest possible score in 292 billion years.

Can we please just be reasonable and cap this level at a top possible legitimate score of 160K or something as suggested above? I can only assume Rovio will fix this glitch in a future release so those with scores near or over 1 million will be that much above anyone coming after who wants to come and play this game for fun, and they will never even be able to sniff a top 50 score no matter how hard they try (unless they revert the game version, get however many millions is the top score on this level at that point, etc…)

The point of playing is to have fun, compete with each other and ABN is a really great community with lots of fun people and everyone helping each other to be better, get past tough levels and enjoy playing the game. This is the equivalent of a game hack (of course I am not saying it is but the result is identical) so why let the super scores stand?

Please @amslimfordy @birdleader and whomever else, I am not trying to create any more drama here then there has already been, I just don’t know exactly what the point is of allowing this to continue when it so impacts the game? I know others agree with me as they have said so in this thread, this is NOT like other glitches, those are annoying because they get fixed and you have to find the 10-20-30K elsewhere, here it’s basically “dial in your own score” with no limit except for how long your phone/ipad/pc can run for and takes all of the fun out of playing and competing in the game, which I know is the whole point of ABN in the first place!

I think we as a community can come together and agree on this without emotion/drama/gnashing of teeth and know what is fair and equitable for everyone. Thanks! Jason (goavs4)

I just had an opportunity to shoot a pig who was stuck on the lower planet. There were no glitch points accumulating, so I figured I would take a shot at it, just in case I ever need to to finish the level. I shot the second egg to the very extreme edge of the lower side gravity on the first planet, It performed an S curve and came out to the northwest of the second planet, I activated it close enough to the large ice ball to send it down to the lower planet, where it blasted into several pieces and popped the pig down there in the process. Not sure how repeatable this is, as I have only tried this one time. Figured I would throw it out there though, in case anyone else has need to use it.

Per a discussion with the Commander in Beak, Sir @BirdLeader:

In light of @cosmo2503‘s — let’s call it success — exploiting the glitch to the tune of 1.8M+ before purposely failing the level, the following tweaks are being made. A cap of 170,000 points will be made on the Leaderboard. Any score in excess of 160,000 points will require a screenshot (at minimum) as proof and will otherwise be removed.

Additionally, any score in excess of 170,000 (with screenshot) will be awarded a badge! The badge will be created soon and the existing five members (@arseel @mvnla2 @kinkykiwi @pjng @hemmy1971) will be the initial membership.

Finally, to clean up this page a little, we will likely go through and remove a few of the threads. We will keep strategies and the like, but general conversation as pertains to the scoring issues will likely be removed. We greatly appreciate all of your feedback and input on this matter and hope it will be an adequate solution for all.

@amslimfordy – I wanted to ask you a question, or make a suggestion if I may…since you are keeping track of everyone’s glitch score and we will all be tied at 170K, perhaps you could keep the order on the leaderboard to go in order of the glitch scores? For exmaple list arseel first ( as he already is) and my new score would put me second, Stockdan would be third, mvnla2 forth, etc, etc? Perhaps this would be a good idea?

1) Added you to the list! Badge awarded!

2) Currently, the sorting for ties is random (to the best of my knowledge). Also, when we implement a legitimate tying code to the leaderboard (pseudo code has been written and I believe is in the process of being adapted), I suspect it would be even MORE difficult to override such coding so as to manually sort any ties.

However, this is by no means my area of expertise. I’m not a coder (though my shining achievement to date is writing the aforementioned pseudo code for ties). I’ll forward this thread to @BirdLeader and see what he has to say. But I worry that such logic may defy our existing and developing logic.

BTW, not to be a “Debbie Downer” but you stated “I ended the level myself after 400k+”, which I take to mean that the level did not end on its own. If that is correct, then I really hate to say this, but I don’t think you should get the badge.

@kathy , but patience is a cardinal virtue! There’s prudence, justice, patience and, eh, good looks.

The glitch is supposed to rack up points slowly but steadily. It might take a minute or two for the raft to make contact with an anchor, but from then on you should see your score increase by about 10 points per second.

Standard procedure is that the level still blows up pretty soon at around 115,000 points, but once in a blue moon it doesn’t. If you get up to 145,000 points you’re golden for the badge. Just don’t finish the level yourself before 155,000 points (because you forfeit 10,000 bonus points for using an egg.)

@kathy – the level *should* complete itself eventually when the glitch occurs. If it does not, (or you can’t wait any longer) The way to finish the level will depend on which little planet the little pig is hanging out on. The upper planet is easier, as all you need to do is fire an egg so that it just misses the rock with the anchor hanging off it to the upper side, and it should go to the little planet and self detonate, popping the pig there. The lower planet is trickier, but can be done, if remaining debris is adequate. The shot involves getting an egg close enough to one of the iceteroids to direct it to the lower planet, without being so close that it blasts into pieces when the egg is activated.

Wow! @Burbman — I didn’t know you could pop the pig on the lower planet.
I would certainly suggest practicing the second shot whenever you get the chance, since you don’t want to miss it when you score is high.
BTW — I am not known for extreme patience, or good luck, but watching everyone’s struggles here, I think I must have collected all the L-factors from every game and level to get the badge. I think you all have tried many more times than I did.
As I’ve said before, I found Angry Advisor’s 2nd strat to be easier, but that might just have been the super L factor.

OK, I got the glitch again, and this time I did not end it, but let it run until the pig popped by itself giving me a score of 389430. This time I played this level by the method shown on the second video, that is by sending the egg south of the first planet and activating it by the closest TNT. It took quite a number of attempts until the glitch worked. Many times it started, but ended too soon, in less than a minute, until finally it stayed. The way it worked this time was very different from the first time when I got this glitch by accident. Before, I had two anchors next to each other and pushing the pig so that they moved around fast enough that the movement was visible. This time, the pig landed between two anchors and at first glance it was motionless. I was about to restart the level, when I saw the score change by 10 points, so I decided to wait. The score was climbing, but very slowly, and rotation was very slow, almost invisible. When the glitch started, the pig was in the 6 o’clock position of the asteroid, and when I looked half an hour later, it was in about 7 o’clock position. It was that slow! But it was working, so I left my iPad overnight. It started around 9 pm, and by 6 am the level ended on its own. Here are the screenshots: http://angrybir.de/XDgSs7 http://angrybir.de/XDh6zg

After trying this on off for a couple of days it finally worked. It played out pretty much exactly like the glitch video, with the 2 anchors seeming to tangle together then the pig & raft did the long slow drop, & the score started increasing after only a few seconds. The pig was doing a faster movement than annach mentions above, I could see it moving, probably once around every few minutes or so. It started around 7:45pm, I checked it periodically & somewhere between 10 & 10:15pm the pig popped for 386k.
I had a lot of false starts, with the pig popping after accumulating only a few thousand points.

This was really fun. Read all the comments tried all the techniques and set out on the quest to see if I could get the raft, the pig and the tow anchors to ride the upper planet. What a hoot…

Yesterday I did it but had to go to work. Took the iPad to work and one could guess, someone reset it. Learned a couple of things with the first experience: it seemed to load about 38-40K points per hour, the wood block pushed the two anchors and one of the end pieces of the wood raft was gone but the main body of the raft stayed in tact throughout the 4+ hours that it ran prior to being reset. The score was over 345k which was accumulated at a slow steady pace of about 10 points per second. My goal was to let it run till it self-destructed. That goal was not realized and this is where patience and persistence will eventually bring the rewards. So not to be discouraged, today is a new day to try again.

It took about 2 hours to get the raft with the pig to ride the planet and it did work again, yes!!!
This time it was different. I noticed that from the start at 4:01 am EST that one of the anchors, with part of the chain still attached, was pushing the raft. One of the wood tips was broken off the raft but the main body was still intact. The other anchor was on the other side of the planet. The score accelerated to the pace of 8k per minute. After a few minutes the raft and anchor contacted the other anchor and the score seemed to change, it slowed down. At 4:14 am EST the second anchor destroyed the raft and pig with a final score of 200,170.

I had good performance with landing the initial bird next to the lower tnt. With this technique it is very easy to quickly ascertain if the raft will be successful in landing on the planet.

Yeah, I was worried about taking screenshot while level still running for that very reason. But I just tried on iPad, and you can resume level where you left off after screenshot. So you might try for future reference. A screenshot after the level has been completed, or even restarted, that shows your high score will be sufficient.

Not true about the never ending level, myself and cosmo2503 both reported what seemed to be never ending levels (1.8 million for cosmo, just over 1 million for myself http://angrybir.de/14dVSi5 ) in both cases they were still going when we ended the levels. I got the glitch again and this time it did end itself at just over 822K http://angrybir.de/WYYgCb ~10 hours total (the first million score took 18 hours) I suppose the 1 million score could have stopped at 1100000 or something but given that cosmo got to 1.8 million I am not sure there is a (reasonable) top end for this level.

Kudos to the admins for a great compromise, makes it fun to try to get the glitch without wreaking havoc on the leaderboards plus I am sure Rovio will fix this in a future release.

Quick question for those who have achieved the high scoring glitch. Are any of these scores from iPhone or iTouch (SD) iOS devices? I have probably triggered the glitch 25 – 30 times on my phone, but it usually pops the pig after only a few thousand points have accumulated. I know luck plays a huge part in this, but was just curious if the higher definition on the iPad app makes any difference?

Just so everyone is aware, the “glitch” can occur on the southern planet also. I’ve had the raft pig end up on the south planet, and he begins to rotate around it VERY slowly, and pushes the anchor along in front of him. The points accrue 10 at a time, and again VERY slowly, but it does work. Unfortunately, I have not beat my non-glitch high score this way. Just wanted everyone to know so if you get the pig on the south planet you may consider letting it run.

Based on watching the above vid and my own experience, this appears to be a 2 part glitch.

Part 1: Getting the “Crack the Whip” of the left most raft so it slowly floats down to the upper right planet.

Part 2: Getting the raft to land in tact and not get instantly smashed by an anchor so the points rack up.

I have gotting Part 1 numerous times. I have not had the luck of getting Part 2. Although I think I had it once and messed up. My score slowly, over the course of an hour, went up to 120,500 and then stopped. It stayed that way for another hour. Nothing, no score increase no no movement of the anchors/pig on the raft. I figured that it had “run out of steam” and reset. Now I’m back to trying to get both parts of the glitch. I have played this level WAY too many times. If it weren’t for the few Android players (@Kathy and @burpie) I would swear that this is an iOS only glitch. Of the currently 12 players that have gotten the badge, only 1 is not iOS.

I really want to get this badge before any patch comes out or another update to one of the other games comes out.

I really doubt there will be any “fix” as there is really nothing wrong with the game or programming. The level just has an anomaly in which the score can accrue to levels we’ve never seen before.

If there is any glitch it’s where the pig on the raft hits the invisible wall – there’s nothing there to hit, so that’s a bit strange.

I would not worry about Rovio correcting this anytime soon…maybe never.

Big big warning to those who are doing this level for the badge. DO NOT waste that 2nd egg otherwise there is a strong chance you will have to restart. I flung the 2nd egg on accident while making sure my phone wouldn’t time out and it came back to bite me. After 3 hours of waiting for the score to get high enough I flung the third egg and the level failed on me before the egg could destroy the last pig. This was all trying to get the pig on the north planet so I have no idea if it will time out on you if you are trying to get the south planet pig with the last egg.

I did make a few observations for those it might help with. If the score is skyrocketing quick there is a big chance the pig will die quick. Ideally you want the score to go up in 10s every 2-3 seconds. If the score is only going up in 10s every 15 seconds then just restart because it will take way too long to get the badge score.

I also found it easier to start the cycle by flinging the first pig along the north water so that it lands in the middle of all the stones. I found a lot of the times the other way would end up sending the top boats together to the north planet which gives you no chance at the glitch.

I wish luck to anyone trying to do this and hopefully you don’t end up losing lots of hours by accidentally wasting your 2nd egg.

Got it on the second try. It actually racked up the score quicker than my previous attempt so if the score goes up by 10 every second that doesn’t mean the pig will die quickly. Thankfully it didn’t take long after the previous attempt. It took about an hour to get the score high enough to be eligible for the anchor badge.
