Angry Birds Star Wars Cloud City Level 4-8 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Cloud City level 4-8 is to aim Han for the dangling storm trooper in the bottom-left corner, shooting the well-protected pig in the top-left. Han should loop-the-loop and clear most, if not all, of the level. The score in the video below is 73,100.

Another strategy is to launch Han towards the upper-most corner pig(diagonally below the TNT) and direct the laser on the chain holding the small circular stone. This should destroy everything.

Forget far left pig, he will die when the tnt next to him goes off. Aim for the bottom left pig, shoot to the bottom of the platform with the chain, bullets ricochet to platform next to it dropping both platforms. Key is to set off lower tnt and for the ball on top of it to have an unobstructed path up, the top right fan thingy will blow the ball over to the TNT clearing the level. Very random having a clear path, it can be done without shooting down platform with the chain much more easily, but you won’t get that platform to fall and therefore less points.

Agree with you, but it takes lots and lots of tries before the stone can pop up and detonate the upper tnt. Still, it gives the best score.

If you aim just right of center of that center platform this repeats more than you’d expect.

My strategy was a slight variation: I shoot the edge of the right platform and the lasers ricochet back to the platform with the chain, dropping both platforms. 81k.

I used this strategy as well. It seems to work better as it gives more time for that platform to clear a path for the ball to go up. I have found that the path clears best when han solo bird collides into the platform from below breaking it into pieces which are then forced to the left by the steam.

I came up with the same strategy @f91jsw… it was nice to see you had already put it here. My best results came from waiting until just before Han hits the lower chain to fire his blaster upwards into the left hand edge of the floating platform on the right. This should deflect the shots into the chain and upper left platform. There should be enough debris floating around to destroy both platforms and ignite the lower and then upper TNT’s.

Fun level!

It works! I rapidly rised to 81k+ from 73K+ with few trys. The clear way for “TNT tone ball” is not offen but it’s repetable.

This is another one of those levels where you get such a difference in score each time its very frustrating nice to have some guidelines from high scorers:)

I keep timing out before getting the stone balls to crush and drop all pieces of platform. Mostly I’m left with the top left floating structure (nearest to top left TNT). When the ball hits the TNT and sends the three others flying, they kill the last pig and the level starts calculating immediately before enough can be destroyed. Falling isn’t enough, either. Not having too much fun with this one.

85870 with one bird.

Same strategy as described by @damni82much. However, and this was the difference for me, I am waiting for the pig on a rope to come down completely a second time before flinging Han.

Here is the final result.

And this is the highscore screenshot.

All the screenshots are also available in high res here in one set.

I haven’t managed anything useful with it yet, but if you get the angle just right, you can get the upper left TNT to explode when shooting the pigtrooper from beneath.

Temporary #1 using a variation on @damni82much strategy. Basically just the same except the little disc got swallowed up and there was another piece of debris that went up (damaged) and just barely survived until it hit the tnt square. If it had needed to bounce off the disc triangle like normal it wouldn’t have made it.
In other words SDL – sheer dumb luck…

I think my variation of @damni82much‘s strat might warrant its own alternative strategy post:

Aim for the lower left storm trooper. When you just reach the vent stream shoot at the edge of the right platform so that the lasers ricochet on the platform with a chain. Han will go on and break the right platform to pieces, which will clear the way for the little boulder on the TNT to fly up and left to the top left TNT. It’s pretty repeatabe.

This strat has given me consistent scores 80-82k.

While the video works just fine for 3*, some of these alternate strategies produce much higher scores, at least for me on an Android phone. Using @damni82much I slowly improved from 75490>81740. The 81740 gave me a rank of #82 & since I was under #100 & didn’t seem to be getting anywhere, I was about to move on, but you know how it goes …. just one more try & I managed another 20 points, which was disappointing, but every little bit counts. That mere 20 points was worth 3 rungs up the ladder, so I still kept trying, as the other day on 4-6, when I was about to give up & move on I made a lucky shot & missed #1 by just 70 points. Patience & perseverance is really very important with so many of these levels.

I looked for another possibility & tried @f91jsw. Because I’m apparently an idiot or can’t read, I was shooting at the right vent not the right platform, so of course that didn’t work. Once I started aiming at the right platform, things got better & I managed 82230. Breaking up that right platform seems like it will be the key to even better scores.

Patience & perseverance paid off once again ; – ) …. Before moving on, I tried f91jsw’s strategy a few more times & WOW! It paid off to the tune of 1720 additional points & a current rank of #7. Since I’m a realist, I know that #1 is nearly impossible as there are far better flingers than me, so I’m very happy with this. Thank you @f91jsw.

I agree with @jtwade as i achieved my best score by shooting at the edge of the far right platform. So a big thanks to @f91jsw. But many thanks (also) to @damniti82much for posting the original strat!

I had so much fun with this level! Does it make me a bad person that I laugh every time the chained storm trooper head goes flying into the far left platform? MwaHahahahahahahaha squish

LOL An oddball solution send Han vertical so he falls and hit the lower left pig, I shoot whatever is sitting on top of the far right tower for haha’s. Han falls and hit the left hand lowest pig, get blown across and hits the right hand TNT. That blows the rock vertical and gets blown into the left hand top TNT and clears the rest of pigs.

Been focusing on improving my Star Wars scores for the past couple of months, with aim of bringing all SW scores into top 100 territory. Most efforts require multiple repetitions. Have Followed Comex666 tips on many of the games, including 4-8. Was surprised to find that I had registered a top score on this one.
Can provide a screen shot if required.
