Angry Birds Star Wars Path of the Jedi Level J-12 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Path of the Jedi level J-12 is to fling Luke southward, looping a full 360 degrees, and targeting the stand-in Vader. Slicing the southwest pig with your lightsaber as you pass by and dropping the TNT next to Vader will clear most of the pigs. Use another Luke, a bit closer to the planets, to loop 540 degrees into the three remaining pigs on the east side.

Currently top score (82530) with a completely different strategy. First Luke lobbed south but high, towards about 8 o’clock, aiming at the 3 pieces of metal supporting the TNT. Hit towards the bottom of these, activating light sabre to destroy them and drop the TNT but also to take out the pig sitting just below on the smallest planetoid. In the resultant mayhem the Vader should go, killing the Force, dropping the pigs on the right and smashing much of the structure and pigs at the southwest of the righthand planetoid.

Second Luke lobbed towards about 11 o’clock so it returns just missing the top of the catapult planetoid and takes out the piggie and the first tower. Then activate the light sabre to get the next two pigs and towers.

Thanks bikkit!
Took me a few tries to get that first shot right, but then I scored 80k+ twice in a row!

@bikkit Initially I had a problem with decoding your method – although it is written out OK. Then I did the first shot for the second approach (but forgot about lollipops pig). That why I have problem s with second one. My first success gave me +1.430. THX a lot. I will improve this.

I used a combination of the video walkthrough & the strat from @bikkit – His 1st shot is a good one but I had trouble getting it consistently so I used the 1st shot from the walkthrough then his 2nd shot, going over the top to the far towers.
I think there is a possible 1-bird clear here, several times the TNT blew the Vader mask over & around to the right to take out a couple of the pigs on the towers, I had only 1 pig left with scores around 45k a few times.

One birder with Vader helmet going around and taking out the pigs on the tower. Score was a disappointing 76K. Not enough other destruction of things.

sorry @bikkit i didnt read your post, and used a similar strategy, difference was I managed a one birder.
It feels so good when we create our own methods to get the oinksters.
Personally, I dont look at the vids on this site, until I finish the game/new updates, and am trying to up my score.
anyway, peace Brother, may the force be with your slinging, and same to those who read this,
peace, CreeJedi…. …

Made with film method after some aiming time. First pig is on stick – like lolypop. On the beggining I was cutting a stick to the ground. Next try not tu cut it. I mastered cutting stick way so have no problem with second spirale.

I will try anather way later – like @bikkit described.

First shot: corner of rock and steel structure. Active sabre changed a shape of bridge between planets from “uneven” to “nibbled equal” :]. Luke could roll to the left (and a yellow pib follow behind him or seats in place (no rolling after a while). Sometimes Luke rolled counterclockwise and hit the middle of post-tnt planetary debris.

Vader helmet will lay in the middle planet somehow between 10 and 2 o’clock. If 1st shot aren’t precise part of a rope will kill 1st pig at middle planet.

2nd shoot – as described – over a little bush at biggest planets (clockwise). It’s important not to be so fast here. It’s better to go trought 2 o’clock pig then bellow it – becasue it will fall down an survive :(. Activate a lightsabre at middle tower – not faster!

The stars help in orientation. I started with under 78K, improved to 80k, now mastered a bit to 81.590 – obtained a bronze medal at this moment. I must timely give up ‘couse I not improved, tired and with no other idea (temporary ;). Howhg.

A slight twist on the video’s strat:

I could not get consistent results taking out the SW pig first, so I fly over him with the first Luke, lightsaber the Vader stand-in, and you will get the TNT, all the left pigs and the levitated pigs

2nd verse, same as the first, but this time lightsaber the SW pig. The flyaround will take out the towers and pigs on the east side. :)

Here’s a pretty crazy alternative strat for a ONE Birdie that sounds hard but actually quite repeatable once you get the hang of it.

Send Luke south, however, you want to just skim him along the other birdie’s waiting in line, as if you were going to scalp the tops of their hair off, lol. You want your aiming dots to start just atop YB’s “hair piece” and end at the tip of the slanted cement plank sticking out.(or ever so slightly left of the tip) Be sure to pull it back all the way and stretch it as far as possible. The key is to tap Luke for his saber as soon as he reaches the cement tip/plank. This will get the bottom south pig and Luke will then bounce off the planet and sail on around towards the other planet! Meanwhile the tnt ignites getting Vader and all center pigs. As Luke journey’s on around, he will take out each pig on the three east towers! I know it sounds crazy but it works. Here’s a screenshot of the actual shot…you will notice Luke ends up over towards the top right:

Now here’s another screenshot I took on a different turn with similar results showing Luke in action heading east…It’s an “action shot” I quickly took as he was sailing over:

Once you get the hang of it, it’s definately repeatable. The two key factors are first, tapping the saber at the right time to get the cement to drop tnt. Second key is getting Luke to bounce, which happens more often than not. GL ;-)

By Odie (@odie)Score: 85,560

@AngryAdvisor Excellent Strategy. I will only add… I think Luke does not bounce off the planet. I believe it is a push off the planet from the saber. When I looked at Luke pushing off the planet, I was able to more consistently get him to fly to the large planet.

Added 5K to my score with your method. thanks.

Argh!!! Took Forever to get the exact spot right to draw the saber then Han either hits the first piggie flying over the other two or he hits the middle and last or just last pig!! That I get consistently but only 3xs has he hit all 3 leaving me with my current score! Very frustrating to hit it right and watch him fly OVER the piggies! :/ Thanks @lesleyg for the awesome 1 birdie strat! Wish I knew why he consistently flys Over the piggies! And yep I’ve tried several different aim and swing points and still the same prob. Oh well at least I got over avg! Thanks again lesleyg! :)

Then i have read your strat and tried to “get the hang of it” and it has worked perfectly !!! Though it was a bit tricky on the little screen of my iPhone to find the right time and place to activate saber to free the TNT AND to bounce properly on the rock. But i got it finally !!

@lesleyg , I tried over and over and was about to give up but I looked at your your illustration and decided it had to be possible. The problem was I was zoomed all the way out. I zoomed all the way in for more accuracy and I got it on the third try 84,100.

Once I figured out the trajectory and the timing, I was getting it down about two out of every three tries. after about I would guess 70 attempts wit the right timing and trajectory, I finally got a one birder with about 83K.

One shot level is possible, with score of 84460. One has to aim Luke at the short end of the contraption holding the TNT, and destroy the pig on the small asteroid in the blade swipe (or bouncing). It might take quite a few tries, but one good explosion of the TNT can blow out Darth Vader and all the other pigs.

By CreeJedi (@creez)Score: 86,030

ah @romrelu, u found my strategy, i cant help but sometimes hold out, when i get a highscore, ;), i will try to not do this, as it is good for me, but bad for the community. 

-One Bird-
aim Luke a short way south, so he hits the end of the metal beam* that holds the tnt, igniting the lightsaber as he hits it, 
the lightsaber will let the tnt fall, and take out the leftmost sand-pig. 
Luke will bounce of the little planet, and continue soust west to destroy the pigs on the east side of the east moon. the tnt will take care of Vader, push the debris to kill the west side moon pigs, and the pig on the stick. 

-the stick that holds the pig up, may help take out the top pig on the east side.

*the metal beam with the bolt in the top middle of it.

this method is very repeatable, once understood.- hope i keep my highscore ;)
please let me know if this helps, good to get feedback.

there is a one birder, similar to the video but keep luke as far from the first pig as you can while still being able to saber him, luke will continue around planet and do his thing, but will knock the helmet into the tnt, which send it around planet to knock pigs of towers.. 83420 score!

I got a one birder too but also the top score not sure if it is still the top or not but it’s one shot and 86K. Shoot Luke at the tip of the metal plank holding the TNT. After Luke bounces activate his lightsaber to drop the TNT. The TNT will destroy vader and the little tower. Luke will finally swing around and pop the 3 pigs at the other side. This rarely works but pays off when it does.

I know I’m not going to make anyone’s day when I say this, but….I started getting better results and upped my already OK score when I experimented with using a lower power shot. Take as little power off as you possibly can and give it a try. Same aiming point (or maybe the width of one frog hair farther away) And yes, frog fur is quite fine.
