Angry Birds Star Wars Tatooine Level 1-16 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Tatooine level 1-16 is to launch Luke towards the bottom left of the vehicle. Pull the lightsaber upon impact. Then launch Obi-Wan towards the pile of debris. Initiate the Force a split second after impact. Debris should be sent flying to the right, detonating the tnt box, and destroying the remaining pig-trooper.

I think this strat is better for high scores:

Launch Luke on a long trajectory (45 degrees or a little lower). The object is to cut off the swinging arm so that both the TNT and the big round metal “knuckle” falls. Wait until the arm is coming dow, and launch just as is reaches its lowest position (maybe a fraction of a second before).

Second bird between the two two small round glass things on the vehicle and force right.

This strategy worked perfectly! Specifically, I launched Obi as deep into the vehicle as possible, and let his power push everything to the top right. Thanks for the very detailed strategy @f91jsw! :)

Just worked out that obi power can be directed. Immediately after impact if you tap where you need debris to hit then 4 arrows appear and debris is dragged to that spot.

Basically like to the left and activate saber. The obi to the debris pile with a tap near the crane to spread the debris. 55010

I found the best method is sending Luke to the top of the vehicle between the two round glass pieces then activate the saber. Send Obi to the rubble from the vehicle and place The Force just above the far right pig trooper. (But then mine isn’t the highest score!) I couldn’t get Luke to where he could reach the “knuckle” to cut it off -as described by @f91jsw.

The other problem I’m having withthis one is that Luke keeps bumping the TNT box in mid-trajectory, so the explosion is wasted on nothing but air.

@TruckDriver, and others, here’s what just worked for me and got me 4k+ more than I had.

1) Send Luke to the swinging crane (you must time your shot so he lands on the top part of the crane in the down position) activate Lightsabre so it severs the entire head with TNT and all to fall below and blow the pigs and pile of debris to hell.

2) Send Obi-Wan to the lower left corner of the vehicle in front of the sling and let it penetrate for about a second then activate the Force to the front and slightly upward of the vehicle, it’ll send the whole thing including the swine to kingdom come.

@WereWolf69 That’s a nicely detailed methodology, especially the second shot.

The first shot I get between 19,500 and 21,470. The second has been giving me fits. I hit the lower left side of the vehicle, allow some penetration, then activate the force field. Sounds like a winner, but the pieces just get a blue aura and nothing much happens. My scores come out well below the average.

By WereWolf69 (@werewolf69)Score: 61,270

@ohforfive, you must not be applying the force where I specify, “to the front of the vehicle and slightly above the vehicle”, not directly in front of Obi, it works out quite nicely, and my scores are consistent.

As with any game in AB, you must remember that persistence always pays off in the end.

ps. if it doesn’t work for you, you can always fall back on the video.

@offorfive, I think I now know what’s happening, when I said to the front of the vehicle, I meant in front of the vehicle, or in other words on the outside of the front.

@WereWolf69 I’m aiming Obi at the rear wooden triangle just above the wheels. After a little penetration, I release the force from in front of the vehicle. Perhaps I should go higer with the force release.
Perhaps is the right! Huge jump in my score.

@werewolf great strategy for the second shot! I came back to this level after getting the green saber and added 4k to my score by using your second shot. As you wrote it takes some practice, but it definitely has a higher potential score. Thanks!

My previous score 56,320 / # 247 depreciating me :(. I feel so higher is possible from statistics but stay at place with sometimes nice 1st shoot (up to 26K). Next go 27K with cute cleaning of right immersion.

Empty space for pushed wehicle is needed. 2nd shot was not ideal, just normal. All ended with score 57.920 / #148. To be continued.

Hi @WereWolf69! I know it’s been awhile since you last posted on this strategy, but I’m having a hard time with the second shot. When I activate Obi’s force to the front and upward, the desbris falls to the left. When I try sending the force to the right and up, rarely does it do enough damage for an above average score. Might you (or anyone else who has been successful with this method – @PourPete, @Bird-Tester) be able to provide more specific aiming points, perhaps? Thank you in advance :)

By Bird Tester (@bird-tester)Score: 62,290

As I wrote – continuation. Same method, 2nd shoot still not mastered but happened form time to time. I made such progress in 5 min period: 58.290, 60.700, 62.670 / #20!

It’s better to cut crane arm with gray barell falling down. Timing will be count independently. Propably when arm is going down around 9 o’clock – form my target high cut: more points & avoiding TNT in the air explode. Ideally TNT will be drop and explode after touching the ground. BUT this is not a must!

This level is little misterious. Don’t be fool by 1st part score! It depend on 2 more or less troopers too. Target – almoust empty dale for pushed vehicle. He can pretty fly and made destruction.

Whoot! High score for now (61330). I am using the green light-saber and Obi-Wan with enhanced force (it was mentioned somewhere that Obi Wan gets increased force at some time). First shot as described by @f91jsw; need >20K at this point. Second shot send Obi Wan on same path as shown for Luke on first shot in video, i.e. into the wood base of the vehicle; force directly right.

This is the strategy I used too. The timing on activating the force is critical for maximum points. The strength of Obi’s force is directional depending on which way he is facing, and where you aim to activate the force at that time. I aimed Obi closer to the first wheel so he would rotate slower on impact, then aimed his force towards the front of the vehicle and tapped when either he was looking at the target, or when the top of his head was pointed that way.

This is what I’ve been trying, mostly unsuccessfully on Android phone during the Challenge. I can’t get the 1st shot timing for Luke launch & more than 99% of the time the arm is in the wrong position, but again, maybe not since I just managed to improve over 6k. Instead of actually being able to cut the arm off, the arm was up & my swing damaged the square blocks on which the swing arm sits with a score of under 22k. I then launched Obi into the front vehicle, let him get sort of comfortable, but not too comfy & activated up & to the right & shocked myself when I saw 53xxx & smiled when the final score was 63710.

Nice @justpast40!

I’ve got the first shot more or less down. I am Luke’s dots so that they align with the top of the blueish part of the clouds and launch when the arm is completely down. Here’s a screenshot of my trajectory, though, due to the screen being completely zoomed out, it may be difficult to tell what is going on:

It is the second shot that is giving me grief! What kind of up and to the right? Can you give an approximate location of where you tap to activate Obi’s force?

@rubeeinthesky, TY for pic. I wish I could really remember where I tapped for Obi’s force, but honestly, as often as I flung, I don’t know exactly where that magic spot was for this particular shot. In trying once again, my best guess is that it’s about 1/2 way between the end of the vehicle & the square stone base of the swinging arm & that the tap height would be about level with the bottom of the same square stone base or just above the darkest peak in the background. I really believe this has something to do with the different devices & platforms.

Sometimes I get a feeling that I stand a decent chance of another puppy, but I’m not even close with this one; 3000 behind the TopScore is a huge deficit to overcome.

Alternative strategy which has given me top spot – first send Luke through the wooden triangle at the left of the first vehicle. Let him bounce off the metal wheels and then swipe the sabre. Then send Obi into the pile of debris and use the force to send it up and right, hopefully triggering the TNT and taking out the remaining pigs.

Well that’s embarrassing. I just watched the video and realised my strat is exactly the same! That’s what comes of just reading the comments. Guess I got lucky with a glitch, although I have managed to snap the crane once more, but it stayed hanging instead of destroying the rest of the level.

I’ve got my highest score so far, 59k, using this method. It’s not too difficult to get the crane to crash, but haven’t caused enough destruction as yet.
I waited until the TNT / crane was halfway up, launched Obi into the second half of what remained of the vehicle, and sent the force north east.
I at least found it much easier than sending Luke into the crane.

After trying both the strats described here I had greater success with the video one. That 1st shot of flinging Luke up to drop the TNT was driving me crazy, I had such a hard time getting the timing right. In the end I had a higher success rate getting debris from Obi-wan to drop the TNT than I did with having Luke do it. Just give the 1st structure time to settle after the 1st shot, things tend to shift for a few seconds, less chance of messing up the 2nd shot.

This is so frustrating, I can’t seem to break into the 50’s using any of the above strategies. Can anyone post video of their alternate strategy? I can’t be aiming the force correctly and rarely get the first bird over to break the arm with the TNT off correctly.

By Makt21tm

I used only one bird to clear the level

Launch the first shot aimed so Luke flies skimming the clouds. (Lower than 45 degrees). Launch when the swing arm has almost reached bottom. Slice so the double swing arms are gone and the joint ball falls.

Launch Obi toward the four left supporting wheels, barely clearing the protruding top shelf. After he impacts and has stopped moving, the force should go diagonally toward what’s left of the arm support structure.

P.S. It’s not too difficult to break into the 50,000’s with the above tactics, but sheer luck got me over 65,000. Haven’t been able to break 60,000 since.

65450 with two birds.

Same strategy as @wtsitmn.
The small trick for the second bird is to activate while it’s still moving a little. It seems to give more punch to the push.

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’ve been replaying this level since last night as Today’s Challenge, getting a score of 56,820 so far. The reason I am writing is because, in the hundreds of resets I’ve done, there have been 2 weird occurences & they’ve each happened twice so far. On two different resets, hours apart, the entire left side totally self- destructed, followed by me messing up throwing Luke at the crane. Next, within minutes of each other, after throwing Luke at the crane, the ground/platform , under the lowest Pig-trooper, bottom center, began to rotate clockwise. It moved debris from on top of itself, to the right, then “munching” that debris, but still not giving sigificant points.
This has only happened on my android-based tablet. Happy Flinging !!
