1st bird to tip of crane, breaking chain from left side. 2nd bird straight to right hand side chain to kill pigs on far side & explosion mopped up the remaining pig on left. With extra 10,000 pt unused bird, total score was 71,640.

By VegasKitten

This is the highest non-swap score I’ve gotten while testing repeat ability.

Want to take a sec & thank all the great pig-poppers on this site. Without many of you I’d’ve pulled my hair out long ago. Thanks & may the force be with you all!

Great strat. I agree with your second comment. Sometimes I can’t replicate the strat in the video and I can’t make it work for me. If it wasn’t for all of the other nesters I would not make it. Thanks for all the different ways to pop those piggies.

I’ve been using this strat as well. Trying for a one birder but to no avail.

Fast 75 and 80 by this way which evaluate much (read lower for 1B).

I used your approach from the left strategy and itvended up being a 1-birder for me at 77,570! After the chain broke, the body of the bird flew right and broke THAT chain, exploding the TNT and destroying everything else. I haven’t gone for repetition yet, still have a few to 3-star first, but thanks! Nothing else was working for me!

One birder score of 75320 sent the bird straight ahead and sent the racer towards the two wooden boxes under the four four blocks on the high tower.

I found that taking out the tip of the crane, cutting the chain and having Anakin drift over and drop down chute next to chain two, releases chain to drop on TNT which blows junk left to finish off with one bird.

And I found that following the strategy of @mikeinmont is usually a pretty darn good idea. In this case, Pod Racer Anakin did exactly what the mountain man describes above: tip, chain, drift and drop. Thanks for sharing. Aloha.

@mikeinmont, got a question for you and @sparty83 – you guys recall any specifics regarding what angle of approach you used initially when targeting the tip of the crane? I seem to remember going at it from almost straight below. In other words, I aimed Pod Racer bird horizontal and then quickly tapped near tip of crane. I had been trying various angles so I don’t remember the successful fling very well. And the final screen only reveals the initial path of your bird/pig, not any altered path nor the angle of your weapon when activated, i.e. blaster, so screen caps don’t help much. Thanks and congrats on Top Score and TS strategy. I think the Montana Man deserves top billing on this level. Aloha.

Can’t help much but my strat seems weak anyway given the numbers since then. I recall that I was really just trying to break the chain free from the tip of the crane to get the most damage from the falling chain when Anakin broke free and drifted down the chute. I liked the number and passed on the strategy. You two ran with it.

I don’t remember exactly what angle I fired at. If I remember correctly, it started a bit low and directed it up to the gear so that the Anikin would miss the explosion, but go over the tower and to the right. I got several 1 birders in the low 80s. Then on my high score, it seemed like I got one of those massive tnt explosions everyone else seems to brag about.

I used a high arc and this yielded 87,920.

After very fast 1B with 83,830 (# 11) next ones was lowest – from 81 to 75 – yes in this direction. But now 85.170 / #9. My best 2B was enough for #20 / 80,3. 2 way i think. Fast start at tip of the crane or wating when crane chain explicate backward.

I try to fly high and fast change direction to near paralell to the top of crank arm. Sometimes tip crane sprocket – very havy and destructive will fly jumping to the R side and cut a far R chain. Easier is to throw Anakin at far R chain by empty space over 3 flat gray bricks. This way or another – nice scores are avaliable.

This method seems pretty consistent:

Aim fairly high, about 70 degrees or so. Tap the top of the crane immediately after release. Anakin should drift into the gap between the floating cliff that the crane stands on and the tower below without hitting anything, and then cut the chain directly on impact at the cog wheel.

Thanks @mikeinmont for the strat.

A position to aim and timing when the probability that can achieve 1-birder for me is high.
The position to aim at is screenshot.
A wheel small at the moment when I let go of a sling in a timing to tap it.

Position to aim

Please try it. I succeed in my experience approximately one of eight times.
The bird cuts a back chain.
I think that 90+K is a possible score leaving the left pig only once because it has been 66K.

Thank you @thee-michelle for posting your strat and pic ;-) It took me many tries but I finally got a good one birdie for 90410 (3rd place) using your tips! Prior to this I kept getting higher scores with two birds for 85660.

I aimed Anakin in a very high arch to go over the tall rock formation in the background…as in your screenshot. I tapped directly on the wheel at the tip of the crane so that he went straight across, knocking off the wheel and some of the wood. He then glided on to cut the right chain. That little wheel can cut up lots of stuff for extra points! I also noticed I seemed to do better when I waited for the two cement squares attached to the left chain to be up high close to the top of the crane.

Here’s my screenshot of the trajectory…it’s kinda hard to see the dot lines but they go up and straight across:

This aiming / firing strat gets Anakin to the second chain often enough for 1 birders and 90k scores. Thanks for the details.

I’ve managed a one bird solution a couple of times aiming for the end of the crane as others have pointed out. Both times, though, I only managed to score 72,700 and 74,080. I’m still trying to get above average…

Finally got an above average score but not with one bird. First bird to the top of the crane, the bird bounced down to the second chain but it didn’t break and detonate the TNT. I threw the second bird to the big gear and got a really good explosion.

By xwa2203

The same strategy, hit top of the crane from right below – but this time whole crane colapsed and 2nd hit the chain on the right – it gave at the 81650 including 10k from the unused bird.

Once again I’m amazed to have high score here, but this is a young game. Like vid but high arch, down through both chains, TNT and the left pile fell over too.. 89,500.

Similar to @mikeinmont, shooting at the end of the from the front. I come in a little low and activate it up at the last second. It you time it right, the chain breaks and he floats through the gap where the chain breaks, over the tall structure and breaks the back chain to set off the TNT. Key to high points is getting the gear at the end of the crane arm to drop because it really chews up the debris.

I performed swap of this level.
In the character that a boomerang can use the first bird for.
Please cut all the chains.
The second bird in Kit Firsto.
I cleaned the piece which fell into the ground.
Because I was not yet the latest edition, this score was a limit.
I do not understand the method with 106K.

I used Tusken Raiders to ensure that the hanging blocks did not crush the debris and the TNT did not send anything off screen. Then used Stormtroopers, Shadowtroopers and Tie Figher Pilots to shoot the remaining debris. Finally Tusken Raiders to destroy the gears. 122,660

Thank you @wicket182 for writing this. I was going to do it, but you beat me to it. This is basically how I used “last chance” on this level as well. Most important not to let the TNT to explode and blow things off screen. Congrats on getting your top score back.
