Angry Birds Star Wars Hoth Level 3-28 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Hoth level 3-28 is to sling Leia ahead, using her tractor beam to pull at the the main tower of the structure. Aim Han toward the wooden blocks shielding the central mynock pig, and blast the bridge above the level with Han’s laser. The explosions may rattle the cave, but three stars is your gain! The score in the video below is 75,480.

The key here for high scores is to get the top TNT to fall all the way into the pile of rubble. 9 times of 10 that annoying piece of rope will come flying from the first TNT explosion and ignite the falling TNT in mid air, to early.

This is annoying, but I got 79,260 using three birds and using the second Han bird to knock down the right TNT. So, don’t restart right away if the TNT doesn’t fall.

Aiming Leia’s tractor beam as high as possible seems to be the best option.

Congrats to @maxim-barybin and @hallieginsb on getting the extraordinary over 87k scores on this level! Would you both please share your Strategy for scoring so high here?

I know I put in a lot of hours to just get my current 78k using similar to the video strat. Leia to the 1st structure to pull up and over; then Han towards remaining bottom debris and firing laser to the top TNT…I’ve re-visiting the Hoth levels trying to improve a little anyway – especially when I was over average and today I’m now under average on 3-28. (boo hoo). So far there is no bling in my fling on this one. I can’t see too many other ways to do this one. Please help…(thanks!)

@gypsybird I used the video strat, except I think both shots were lower. Leia and the falling tower did a lot of damage to the lower part of the lefthand side of the structure. Han did a lot more damage to the lefthand side, including the ice blocks below, and I got lucky that the tnt from above fell all the way down before exploding, causing a lot of damage on the righthand side. I was kind of stunned to see the point total at the end!

@gypsybird First of all, thank ypu for your good words. As for my strat, I was not trying to damage a tower at all, I just cleared the lefthand side near the ice blocks with Leia, after that sent Han directly to a thick wooden block supporting the first metal plank, shooting as shown in video strat. The rest was absolutely the same as @HallieGinSB described.

@maxim-barybin – thank you too for your reply! It looks like both of you used the same approach at the lower left side to get that all out of the way. I did get a little better this morning. I finally got the upper TNT to fall down without that Darn chain popping it in the air. Yay! Now to just keep playing on to try and raise the score some more. Happy flinging!

@hallieginsb – Thank you so much for your reply and description of your score success! I know a lot of these levels is actually that lucky moment when destruction just happens with the right shot. I’ve had other levels where the structures or towers just crumble to dust one time but seem to be held together with super industrial glue when trying it again. hahahaha. Just the way it goes. I actually did finally get just over 79k this morning (still not over average though) by pointing Leia’s beam to the lower part of the left side just under the big flying Mynock.

@gypsybird glad to hear you got a little bling back in your fling! So true about random unexpected major destruction from a shot that seems the same as all the others you’ve done. I had been trying for some time to improve my score on this level, then gave it a rest for a day or so. I believe that when I got this score, it actually was my first effort after opening up the level. The game decided to throw me a bone, I guess!

@hallieginsb, it really is a good thing to just temporarily move on from a frustrating level in any game – then go back to it later. It works for me sometimes anyway (getting a higher score after the dust cloud settles off my over-gamed brain). I’ve been a lot more focused (or, fixated!) on Angry Birds than any game I’ve played since the original Legend of Zelda and Mario Brother games from long ago (dating myself, I know).

@gypsybird, I couldn’t agree with you more, but not so much this level which seems to rely more on the “L” factor than on actual aim points, but rather on the level preceding this one #27, that level has me constantly scratching my head because no matter how many times I play it, the laser blast hits the upper right pig dead on and nothing ever happens to the stupid pig.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 17065 points

I think that Hoth 27 also requires a bit of L factor – it was hard to get over average on too – at least for the 2nd bird. This Level (28) is the real pork teaser. I’m not going to look at this one again for a little while anyway.

Update some 7+ years later. Re-playing Star Wars while self-isolating during the coronavirus pandemic. Originally I scored 87k using the walkthrough strat. This go around I used Odie’s alternate strat below with a special assist from the video by @comex666 – and I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for all of the first rate videos he has posted on the Star Wars levels. First rate!

@gypsybird i did it the same as the others got to shoot Hans fast and make sure all 3 shots hit the cement under the TNT above. I remember many times that deadly rope blows the TNT in mid-air lots of luck to have it go all the way to the bottom. Sorry i can’t be of more help. :(
Good luck if you decide to try again:) you have a pretty good score now i see:)

Make it Easy and Less Frustrating.

Fire Leia’a force at the top left hanging pig so the pig is pulled left. The pig will then swing to the right, which will knock the top of the tower to the right.

Quick fire Hans (do not wait for crap to stop moving). At the appropriate time, shoot at the top TNT before the tower’s top completely falls. The falling tower will protect the TNT from the rope deadly rope.

How I got 87K
Fire Leia at the left end of the bottom left metal beam. About a little more than half way to the beam use Leia’s force on the top left hanging pig. Sometimes Leia will break the diagonal blue beam.

Quickly prepare Hans for launch on the same path or slightly above Leia’s path. As the top pig, which is now swinging, returns to the vertical position fire Hans. Shoot at the appropriate time to get three shots to hit the support beam for the top TNT. Shooting the left flying bird is not critical. Debris from TNT explosion usually kills it.

BTW you can shoot Hans under the bottom left beam and still get the top TNT to drop. However, for me it was much more difficult to attain consistency. Sending Hans over the top of the beam provides much more room to aim laser fire. Additionally, try to leave as much of the tower remaining vertical as possible. I found more points were obtained by the TNT explosion vs falling damage.

Hope to see you earn at least 80K.

Had a similar strategy for the 1st bird, but didn’t thought of shooting 2nd bird quickly.
Sadly, it seems you still need to be very lucky to get really high scores.

@odie great tip to shoot Han quickly after the 1st shot, made a huge difference in getting the TNT to drop farther down for more destruction, particularly of the ice underneath everything. It took me awhile to master the angle & timing of Han’s blaster fire but it all came together in the end – or rather blew apart! I got really lucky destruction of the ice on the left hand side too.
I was working on firing Han low to send him into the glass on the bottom left but I agree it’s much harder to aim the blaster shots this way. Thank you for sharing your strategy :)

Thanks for this strat @odie! Finally, at long last, I was able to come up above average anyway. I’m still flinging on this one (haven’t touched it since before you posted this approach on 07 February). It took me a while to get the rhythm of the pace in shooting Hans quickly after firing Leia. So far, Just over 84k but I am a lot less frustrated at this point with Level 28.

I was sitting there at awful 70,3K / #530. One of my worst position. During last 48 h I made huge improvement, step by step, by @odie way. After breaking a 80K border I started to improvise. I observe so deadly rope can fly under falling TNT. It’s happened more then once definitly.

Try this: start Leia, shoot her gum at left first corner aiming deep but in line. More important is deep and precise shoot then fast. Shoot is under first hanging mynock. Things going up, Leia arcing to fall at one of the floors of high tower. Choose one of 3. She could bump (not break) also 2 of them falling down.

This cases Leaning Tower of Pisa effect. OK, Pisa Tower stay still, this one fall to the left. Anyway – the same direction of lean. which take care about top mynock too.

Next are 2 possibilities: to shoot Han fast as Odie discover OR wait IF left side look flat (or will possibly be flat). WHY? Change of time of falling gray TNT & deadly rope zip under & double TNT explode one by one.

If you target Leia’s landing point at lowest floor nicely – tower will fall AND the basement celling will tilt too. With mynock kill or opening possibility to nice finish. I’m at 86.470 / #29 now and earn 85K too after. Time for brake.

Let me also add my thanks to @odie for your post. It was your strategy that I “tried” to follow as I just improved from 75040>78300>80680.

I still need to greatly improve my just barely above average score of 80680 obtained with a 3-birder no less on Android phone. I’m having a lot of trouble getting the correct angle for 2nd shot so that the flying “pig” on the upper right holding the TNT comes down. Perhaps 1/35+ times the ricochet from the 2nd shot cuts the right rope killing the “pig” & allowing it’s TNT to also fall, but something else always remains.

In this case, it took a 3rd shot to take this last one out & drop the TNT for a score almost 250 points above average with very little debris remaining after the explosion. ….. So, if your goal is simply to obtain an above average score, it’s definitely doable with 3 shots, so don’t give up. I’m going to keep trying to improve as I’d like to be in the Top 50 in rank (I’m not delusional & realize ABSW & I do not work well together, so the chance of my obtaining a TopScore is just about as likely as winning the Powerball (lottery) here in the United States.) GL to you future flingers : – )
