This “round robin” strat is definitely the way to go. Aim carefully, young Jedi, lest you hit the northwest planet, the outcrop of the northest planet or fall just under the TNT. :)

Agreed to the round robin strategy. Once you figure out the right aiming point, it’s pretty easy to be consistent.

On my first 1-birder, I actually grazed the top planet and therefore didn’t have a light-saber. Still, crippled Luke knocked everything down and I got 84,610. Now, to see what I can get with a corrected aiming point….

Very interesting episode, after a few attempts I 3 starred it with 2 birds, then after a few more I got my present score with a 1-Birder, after that, it wouldn’t budge from that score, I’ll have to come back and try again later.

@rwelr999 @ ccJolly others — This is another level where the gap between any posted strat and the high is pretty big. Can any of you offer more detailed tips?

A different strategy is to fire the red bird below the first planet’s gravity, engaging his lightsaber to kill the pig hanging from the rope at the bottom. He will pass through that pig and onto the towers to the right detonating the TNT box. One-birder got me 84,310.

Fling Luke below the first small planet so he is going counterclockwise around the small planet (left planet). When Luke hits the big planet’s gravity, and starts going around clockwise the big planet, use the saber when you smash through the column of bricks pointing to the 9 o’clock position (you should aim to have him hit as close as possible to the stone and wood portions of the 9 o’clock column).. If you do it right, Luke will smash through that column, through the next column, and then up and over the planet, missing the column and pig at the 3 o’clock position (this is key), and snagging the TNT. The TNT explosion demolishes almost everything left over. (You might have to try this a few times before you get Luke to smash through the first two columns and getting to the TNT).

92040 using this shot. Thanks! I had a pig left several times with 71K showing, so I can see a 95K, or more.
Also, I found that if the TNT drops, it usually leaves a pig, but if it it hit, the pigs go away.

By Liam

93320 – Slim this is worth a video addition. I’d do it, but this clunky old PC isn’t up to it.
Luke has to clear a path through the first column(i actuate when he gets to that little wire thing sticking out), then go through the wood in the 2nd column, and it’s been my experience, he will go around and bounce off the upper right planet, then to the lower right, either hitting or dropping the TNT.

Of course, it doesn’t happen like this every time, it’s a Rovio Angry Birds level, and that means unpredictably.

I’ve tried probably 200 times but I’ve only managed once, and then one pig was left. I’d say it’s just too improbable to warrant a video walkthrough. It might be that it is more difficult with the green lightsabre. My problem is that there’s just too much debris flying around randomly after I swing the sabre that stops down the speed.

Hi every one: following this nice strategy I got two mayor points for me : I got the achievement : Score addict of Path of the Jedi 3 250 000 ; and I got on this level 94 000 ….!!! Yes 94 000 even …. ! With only this difference : the red bird follow the trajectory you describe . But the red bird once reach the point about 2:15 or 2:20 ; the red bird goes out side of the atmosphere then come back faster because of the stream : you have to touch the point on tap locks like end of small mountain south of the planet above the pig hanging ; then the trajectory is to detonate the TNT: know the debris will kill all the pigs…!!! If you do not understand some one please : can change my description : for my bad English . Know trust me : I did several times at least 5 more times to make sure my score . So it was very close 93 780 the highest one…!!! But for sure you can do more than 95 000 . Please try this strategy is really good reliable . If I do not read this strategy I won’t do it. Thank you very much: CMKnippling for your great comment it help me a lot . And I hope my strategy will help others players are stuck or which ones are locking for more point. Cheers to every one.

Congrats @nacho18 on the great score and achievement! I’m not able to understand your description. I’ve had the red bird go outside of the atmosphere, but what is the “stream”? When my red bird goes outside of the atmosphere he just floats away. Does the bird touch the point on top of the small mountain? Are you using 1 bird? 2 birds? I used CMKnippling’s method to get my current score. Thank you in advance.

By swellD (@swelld)Score: 95,660

Here is my strat. I believe the highest score has to be obtained this way.
The planets are referenced as 1-4 clockwise from the top planet. The planetoid will be called PT.
Step wise photos of one birder:

Image 1

Beneath the PT at approximately 7:00 there is a medium brightness star at the midpoint of the gravity field and in a vertical line down from the poser plant. You want the tracking line to cheat to the right side of this star but still just touching it. Luke will intersect the tower that is touching the PT at the protruding bolt. Fire his Lightsaber at the moment he touches this tower. He will pass through that tower and the next with no reduction in speed.

Image 2

Luke continues up and underneath the suspended pig dummy on planet 2 and exits the gravity field to hit the flat part of planet 2 to the right of said pig dummy. He will then ricochet back *into* the gravity field to the right. If your aim was too far right of the star at the PT he will continue out into space.

Image 3

As Luke continues around he will cut the rope on the TNT dropping it to the bottom between the two towers blasting everything apart and taking out all the pigs.

Image 4

The part you have no control over is that debris or Luke has to take out the suspended pig dummy on planet 4 and the remainng debris destruction is the difference between the highest scores. You should easily top 90k this way though. The final picture shows said pig still standing but this will hopefully give you an idea on what to look for.

Image 5

Good luck everybody!

@swelld I keep forgetting to include people’s screen names (for notification) when I reply. Sorryaboutthat. I went after Yoda to play around with that and discovered it’s not Yoda that gives you the points but the plants next to him. 300 for the larger plant; 50 for the smaller. I confirmed that with other plants. I wondered because I had hit Yoda at other times without points accumulating.

I think I have too much time on my hands.

“As Luke continues around he will cut the rope on the TNT dropping it to the bottom between the two towers blasting everything apart and taking out all the pigs.”

That’s key. If he hits the TNT, and all pigs are destroyed, your score will likely be 88K+.

Nice explanation — thanks!

@swellD — Thanks! Your pics really helped. Yesterday I was just slightly above average; this morning I was below. Now I hope I am enough above to stay there.
However, I find it easier to play zoomed in all the way (i.e. the scene is magnified as much as possible). I also play on iPad. I think the following translates swellD’s aim point from all the way zoomed out to all the way in:
In the gravity field of the small planetoid, and almost directly below the 5:30 leaf of the lower plant, there is a set of 5 stars forming 2 triangles (this is not the 5 stars closest to the plant). The upper left star is medium-bright; the next 2, lower and to the right are medium dim, and the bottom two are fairly bright. The 3 higher stars form a nearly straight line sloping from left to right at ~4 o’clock. Your aim-point is a hair above the middle star (one of the medium dim ones). Since a picture would be worth a thousand words, I try for one.

Should have mentioned that you fully zoom in and make sure you can see as far to the left as possible.
OK, getting a fully zoomed-in shot of a 1-birder is next to impossible. So here’s one that is close:
This shot did not take out all the pigs. You want to aim just a little higher. The aim-point star is just visible at 10 o’clock relative to the second trajectory point from the left of the gravity field.
Guess even a picture need a few words.

Thanks for the detailed description. Somehow I just won’t get it right: After slashing through the 2nd tower, either Luke has way too much power and flies out of the gravity field (and outside the screen to the right), or he is to slow and doesn’t get above the TNT to cut the rope rather than floating right into it, always leaving one pig alive. But I’ll try on…

@swelld Hurray! At last a strat I can almost do almost every time! The first 50-100 tries I could easily see how it should work. I will add that if you fly into space there is a possibility that the second possibility (besides being too far right of the star) is that you activated the saber a little too soon… Thanks!

Had to leave note to thank all that have made this virtual community possible. I aways come here after getting 3 stars for either external validation for my strat or info on how to get extra points off a level. It is thanks to this community that I was able to max two boss levels & confirm which levels were really b1thche$ that were truly hard.
