Angry Birds Star Wars Path of the Jedi Level J-17 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Path of the Jedi level J-17 is to fling Luke into the overlapping gravitational fields, using his lightsaber to stop Vader’s Force. Use Han and his laser blaster to target the remaining pigs. It may be best to aim for the rightmost pig with Han’s laser, as that will be the hardest to pop.

Another way – I can 3 star but there seems to be quite a lot of more points that I haven’t quite got yet.

Fling Luke under the lowest planet to hit the swinging rock to take out the bubble pig and activate the light sabre to remove the tower and pig. Then send Han high in the gravity field of the main planet to break the ropes supporting the swinging pig and rocks, while firing back to obliterat the ladder and Vader. This drops the asteroids onto the grounded pigs.

Thanks @bikkit ! While I agree that there are probably more points to be had, this is a quick and easy way to three-star the level without growling like a Wookie at the inability to hit the pig in space.

You’ve had quite a few effective alternate strategies for Path of the Jedi. I’m glad that you’re being so helpful!

Hey, thanks for the nice words! And passing on one’s experiences so that others can hopefully benefit is what this is all about, isn’t it.

But I’m still below average, must have another fling. Or twenty…

@bikkit: This is a good strat for getting 3-stars. The only problem is it leaves too much of the tower between the planets. That’s where you’ll pick up those points using Slim’s strat.

I think that the solution to higher scores lies in Luke continuing around the planet after he knocks down Vader and taking at least 2 pigs in the process, then Fling Hans at the highest possible apogee entry point on upper left side of planet so he takes the remaining pigs while firing at the big pig between the moons.

I think you would be right there.

After trying for ages to break 70k, or get all the pigs with 2 birds, I finally do it and take 1st place to boot. 2 top scores, both in PotJ – the AB Gods are smiling on me.

I tried to do it as per video, I had a problem where the rightmost pig on a tower kept living – the swine!

When I got the high score, Hans left the atmosphere, popped the space-pig’s bubble, bounced of the planetoid, and landed on that last pig.

Tip for getting the most out of Hans on this level, insted of looking at your screen, look across it like a gunsight – I found this helped me get the edge of the atmosphere.

That finally worked for me. It was necessary to aim Luke so that he passed along the left edge of the overlapping gravity fields. This was the best possible suborbital path for him to swing around the south polar region of the large planet, taking out the pigs and the hanging boulders.

By Angry Player

Definitely agree here about Luke continuing, the key is to get Luke to fly above Vader just to nick him and he continues to obit around and knocks the hanging bounders and a pig or two. It makes it easier for Han’s laser to get through to the final fat piggie going the other direction because stuff is cleared. This was a really frustrating level to get all the pigs. Another level where I think the developers feel bad for our sorry rear and just give it to us after allowing so many piggies to just roll away that would not normally. I even thought I had it all done and realized at the end Vader some how managed to make a boulder miss a little piggie when his helmet rolled away…uggh!

Thanks for the strategy ! This helped me reach high score ! First bird got all of the debris between the two planets around Vader, and made two stones fall leaving only the top one. Second bird towards the top of atmosphere : I shot when the bird was aligned with the blue plank and the bird out of the atmosphere, targeting the latter. Most of the debris + this bird were cleared by the shots. Finally, the remaining wooden structure got cleaned at the end of the trajectory.

Man this was a hard level to get above average! I got several two birdies but my scores were always right around 75K. The first shot is easy enough, but the second one is the hardest!
I agree with @werewolf69 in that you must get Luke to fly on around and take out some pigs with him. I ended up getting above average by sending Luke the same as the video. He flew on to get the one stubborn pig on the right, just under the bubble pig. Luke bumped the dangling stone above and landed on the glass bars. Which caused the whole top section/wood planks to kinda shift to where the where now all slanting left. I had the top two pigs remaining and the bubble pig. I ended up sending Hans in south, under the first small planet and just inside the gravity circle. He entered the second gravity circle and I put his lasers on the bubble pig. He then flew on around to take out the top two pigs. It seemed more practical because of the way the level was left. Very hard one indeed!

Truckdriver’s aiming tip for Red helped me….you really need him to fly around as much as possible to have a good shot for Han…even when I did get a good first shot, I often mucked up the second one.

Can’t make my mind up which game is tougher, this one or DZ?! No wonder there’s a badge for this one!! After reading the comments here I think I’ll count myself very lucky I was able to pull a 2 birdie over avg. which ended up basically like the video and just move on!!

Some fresh tips. Maybe not so fresh – I rised nicely there week or 2 ago but with no PC to post observation. YES, it’s insane level but not fully. Long time I cannot understood HOW to change a trajectory but I discover it!

There is a possibility to radical changes of Luke landing point. From overstering (going outside), to 6 o’clock area, by before 4 o’clock tower to the highest top tower!

Aim Luke with max screen using tiny halo as an orienting point. Catch one way suitable for you and DON’T change it for study reason. CHANGE a moment of using lightsabre. THIS is another “stering wheel” here! As soon as possible or tiny moment later changes a lot. If someone catch this – the rest will be easier (a bit :).

This is how I did it 1. As in video 2. Fling Han under the small planet and as he comes around shoot lazers at the bubble pig. With some luck he’ll also take out the 2 pigs on the right side. 3. As per the video to clean up. I barely 3 starred it but it’s over.

***NOTE TO ALL CHALLENGE PLAYERS***

The requirements to provide proof for an Underdog has been slightly changed.

Along with your comments in the walkthrough page of the strategy used…
Now, it is a requirement to provide a screenshot of the Tally Score Page that appears when the level ends, instead of just a picture of the score showing in the level.

Of course, if you want to provide the screenshot of the level before it times out (to demonstrate remaining debris or trajectory), that’s acceptable also.

This change is part of a continuing effort to keep the leaderboards “clean” and make the Nest enjoyable for everyone!

Happy Flinging, and Good Luck!

@sweetp for me it is not clear what you mean with the “Tally Score Page”. Is it that page showing three stars and the ‘new highscore’ message?”. Id yes, it means that we will have to pay attention to our scores. It happens more once that I wanted to enter my score and wondered about being higher than the old highscore.

Rank: Sling God with 26290 points
By SweetP (@sweetp)

Yes, you’re correct @bernersenn. It is the page that shows three stars and your score. if it shows a higher score than the previous one, then make a screenshot of it. Even if you show a screenshot of the page with a lower score than the previous one, the higher score will appear on the same page.Here is an example. Therefore, either screenshot is acceptable.

Not much luck involved in this one. It takes two pretty good shots. Almost exactly like the video. I got the best results with the first shot as close to Vader as possible, which means you need to activate him just a smidgen before hitting the wood. You need to do enough damage to the middle right area so that…….you can start shooting Han a little sooner than the video. This takes out much of the top junk. Note that Han hits the hanging stone to slow him up enough to take out the bottom right pig. That is probably the hardest part of either shot.

WTG @stocktoad and congrats on the puppy. I agree this is a real “pixel perfect” level and really tough. I’ve been shooting much the same as you describe, and find that the best approach with shot 1 is to activate Luke just before hitting the barrier – enough to slow him enough to curve round and stay inside the gravity field. To begin with I was activating Han too late, and did better aiming at bubble pig as others have described, activating just as he enters the gravity field,
