Grab a cup of coffee, this one may take a while if you’re looking to rack up some serious points.
Scope, Sling, Potion, Quake Quake Quake. Maybe another Quake. Now using Shockwaves like candy carefully take out everything leaving the nearest balloon suspended pig. We even wasted two Shockwaves getting the balloon on the right for 50 points, but hey, Points Is Points! Notice that repeatedly slamming walls and ledges appears to rack up a few K here and there, and check out our shot(s) to get the trophies under the sling. I lost count, but I think we used between 25 and 30 birds before being satisfied with the level of destruction.
As the final piece de resistance, send a shock through the balloon holding the pig being careful not to kill him, and get another shock in the sling before the bacon hits the pan for another 10K.
Since Power Ups are not only permitted but required, POWER UP SCORES MAY BE ENTERED!
A big thanks to our Mighty Red for the awesome videos, and to Bernersenn and the ABN Admin team that keep this all together! Knichy out!
Feel free to leave comments below, but don’t just post your scores – that’s what the leaderboards are for.
Score 445,670 Leader board won’t let me enter it. @admins I will take a screenshot and post it also.

Congrats ! i have 306930 points .
@swanz thats currently 2nd place once I get to enter my score. Keep trying theres many things you can try with these power up levels.
@gumby threshold has been raised.
432860. We need to boost the limits here. The official video is even over the limit.
The key here is realizing that you have an infinite number of lightning bombs available. You start with 6 birds, you can use 50 lightning bombs, clear every last bit of debris, and still get 60K bonus to boot.
@samsonkj Don’t forget that if you put an extra Shockwave into the sling before the level times out that you can get an extra 10k.
Oh yeah. I used that trick on 14, forgot to do it here.
My problem: I keep spacing out in the middle of a run and flinging a red by accident. :(
And note that you can get some extra points by blasting the walls repeatedly with Shockwave.
If a player one little pig not kills ? then you cant the schockwave many many many times and its 450.000 or something possible . 381.000 plus now .
Scored 452480 used over 30 shockwave bombs.
The information is incorrect. Unlike the other bunch of tutorial levels, power-ups are NOT REQUIRED for this one. FWIW, I got a bit over 302,000 points with no power-up.
The thresholds appear to be 290,000 for two stars, and 300,000 for three stars.
True. It might be fun to have an alternative powerup-free leaderboard for this level. It’s certainly less time-consuming to do it this way.
299150 is 2 stars, 300100 is 3 stars.
I know I said I wouldn’t but I did this level again and now I need to submit a Public Health Warning. STOP before this drives you crazy. After what seemed like a lifetime, (real time 20 mins), I had 400k with the last porker still hanging onto that yellow balloon. Got it and had another bomb bird in the sling for the 7k. Sadly only got 6k. Ah well.
Help! Where are the points I am missing? Spent 30 min Looked and looked but only got up to 394,000. Had the three white stones(?) left on the right and three redheads(?) on the left but couldn’t destroy them. Is the potion PU of any use? Quaked at the beginning for well over 200,000.
@whoosher Make sure you get every last point out of the walls. Don’t forget the vertical wall behind the birds, the slanted one behind the last stone tower on the far right (with the trophy cup) and the floating island in the upper middle. If you got all that and destroyed everything except 1 pig you should be looking at 406k and change. Those three gemstones (‘redheads’) you have left give 9k total, so maybe something got blasted off-screen? That’s the only thing I can think of.
Use the Shockwave birds to blast the white eggs out of their tunnel and all the way to the left. You can then continually knock them into the gemstones untill you break them all. Using the birdquake can roll them just within the Shockwave’s range if needed.
Well I managed another 4K but still had those 3 gemstones tucked inaccessibly on the left.
@angrychicken you say to blast the white eggs out of the tunnel all the way to the left. Could you add some specifics? I tried a high arc landing right on top of the tunnel but it didn’t have much effect.
@whoosher Well, basically you have to blow the tnt’s and clear everything above the tunnel. Then aim the shockwaves right above and ever so slightly to the left of an egg. With a little luck they will bounce through the gap on the right and up onto the upper level. Then you can shoot the shockwaves into the tunnel to blast them from below so they fly over the hill in the middle.
As an extra tip, don’t use a birdquake. In stead, manually blast the structure in the air to the right, then carefully pick off the top half of the left structure to leave a platform for the eggs to fall on. If you don’t, they like to fall into the gap where the moustache pig is and it will be hard to get them out.
1 egg is enough, so you have three chances. Good luck!
@angrychicken and @stocktoad. Thanks for your generous help.
I managed to destroy all the gemstones but one by conventional means. I tried the trick with the white eggs but although I made some progress it was too hard for me.
I’m through with this level.
And so to bed.
@Stocktoad How Do you ‘Quake’ the trophies and apple cores under the sling¿ I can’t control where the Quake will hit? Is that what you meant?
I don’t know Jim @whoosher …. I used the quake first, and then used the other PU’s in addition to shockwave. I couldn’t determine if the red potion is actually good for anything, but I used it. I wasn’t able to destroy the white eggs. The applecore looking things on the trophies can be destroyed if you quake right next to them, but as far as I can tell, they give no points. It does take a while to get all the points. As far as hints, just take it slow so nothing flies off screen and keep going until no points show up at all, anywhere. There isn’t much else I can say. I do think I may have missed 10-30 points, so there is hope for anyone who doesn’t heed Dr O’Neski’s advice.
Thanks @angrychicken and @stocktoad. I’m missing 12k so the gemstones must be part of it. I did look in all those places for points and was getting only an occasional 10 points at the end.
I guess I’ll just have to try again (sigh).
Tried one more time and again the extra bomb bird in the sling failed to count so something is not quite right. It may be the iOS version on an old iPad. Anyone else got the problem?
Got it finally. Tip. Send the bomb bird though the yellow balloon to drop the last pig. My mistake was “shocking” the pig from close by.
Hey Jim…..@whoosher 12k seems like a lot to be missing if you are systematically going over every square inch of everything.
If you mean by gemstones the apple cores that are on top of the trophies, that can’t be it as I had at least 2-3 left that I didn’t get. I have never gotten an egg ever….although I have chased them from the bottom to the top. Three left every time. I’m wondering if you are getting the 10k from quickly reloading shockwave after dropping the balloon. Dr. O’Neski missed out on it after going through everything. I had it happen to me on level 13 where it is much more difficult to get the extra 10K.
@stocktoad @angrychicken @whoosher
How to fling that last bird (shockwave)? Already started 4 times with 408k – and never got the new shockwave counted as bonus bird. This is driving me nuts.
@bernersenn you need to tap the shockwave icon a split second before the pig hits the ground. If you spam it right after you fling the last bird, it won’t count.
Finally did it.
It’s possible to blow those apple cores off the screen and they don’t break easily so that could be where some missing points are? Also I think earthquake probably gets the most out of stuff points wise , rather than nuking it with a shockwave
I’ve never gotten the knack of mid-action screenshots, but here’s a screenshot right before my final fling on the 483250 run.
@bernersenn I had a little trouble with that too. Send your last shot through the balloon being careful to not get the pig. Detonate right after that and as soon as the shockwave indicator starts to crackle, tap it.
@bernersenn I should have said when the indicator is turned on. After you tap it it will crackle.
@whoosher @angrychicken thanks for the tips, will give them try later today.
@whoosher @angrychicken thanks guys, it worked!
One last tip. You can practice this shot easily. Just quake until all the other pigs are gone and then try it.
304970/6. NO POWERUPS USED!
All this dialogue, and no non-power-up strats! So, here is one for your amusement:
First bird: Send in very low, bounce off the ledge and into the row of cups/nuggets. Reset if less than 15K. Usually wound up with 15K, sometimes 18k.
Second bird: Medium arc through hanging pig into left column and maybe the brick on top of the column on the central floating island. Destruction on this shot determines subsequent shots. In the best case situation, all piggies except the two in the pit meet their maker and the floating platform is nearly cleared.
Third bird: If there are still piggies on the left structure, try to get them with this one. It usually doesn’t work, but it does soften the target for the bomb bird. If there aren’t any left side piggies, send it in a medium arc to take out some of the glass in the pit.
Fourth bird: Take out the remaining left side piggies with this one. If it doesn’t do the job, reset. If there aren’t any left side piggies, send it into the brick tower on the left side of the pit. If the brick tower is mostly gone, send it into the pit.
Fifth bird: If the hanging piggies on either side of the floating island are still there, take them out with this one. If they are gone, go high and take out the cup and nugget on the brick tower on the right side of the pit.
Sixth bird: Into the pit, and hope that it teleports under the platform at the bottom of the pit, taking out the objects and TNT and hopefully most of the stuff above the platform.
It is very difficult to get 3 stars on this level without power-ups, but it is possible. Significantly higher scores are also possible. I would like to see a scoreboard for scores achieved without power-ups.
That’s it. Hope it helps!
312660/6. Same strat,more luck.
For comparison, here is my powerup-free strategy (not claimed to be any better):
1. Red bird: bounce into the row of cups, as in jrsquonk’s strat. Typically gives 15K, but 21K is not uncommon.
2. Big bird: send low near the left edge of the horizontal piece below the left-most bird. Kills the bird, partially damages the wood structure, and may even bounce back to destroy more of the cups.
3. Blue bird: medium arc, split right after lift-off so that one birdie gets the flying pig, and one bursts the blue baloon. The floating structure disintegrates, and destroys most of the left structure, the middle stone tower, and damages the structure in the pit. However, if you miss the blue baloon, you have another shot:
4. Bomb bird: if the floating structure still stands, shoot for the blue baloon. Otherwise send towards the left edge of the pit, so that it clears the way somewhat.
5. Yellow bird: if the left big pig refuses to die, try to finish it. Otherwise send high to get the cup in the right tower.
6. Orange bird: Into the pit, as in jrsquonk’s strategy.
485540 Finally getting the last shockwave to count.Never going back to this level again
Not sure where all the extra points are coming from but I’m OK with 438K.
Tried this level a number of times in the last two days. Flung red bird at least three times by mistake, reset the level accidentally at least twice, walked away from the game for a few minutes and the screen saver came on and all progress was erased but in the end made it through a few times.
Could not obtain the scores listed above but I am satisfied with what was earned. I even got one of the eggs to go into the opening on the left where all the trophies and gold nuggets reside. Bombed the egg against them but could not destroy the egg.
Was also able to obtain the last bomb bird by the method described previously. I went through all the structures twice to ensure no points remained and even bombed off screen to the right and left sides for extra points even though no stones or wood were thrown there.
I did not use bird quake throughout the entire final game. In previous plays used it but the scores were less.
In the end not sure why I could not get into the 480k range so maybe something changed with the last update. I noticed comments in the previous levels that things have changed, then again there are better flingers and I may have missed some points somewhere.
Very fun level to play.
@admins Can you please remove @blandes02 scores from all the levels he has entered on. Thanks.
Well I’ve read All the posts carefully, did as instructed, as i could remember ( there’s a lot of posts) Lined up Shockwave, with power potion, hit quake a couple hundred times, flung a few Shockwave’s now quake And still managed to end up 3k under average!! got all the trophies and apple cores, I quaked until no more points were adding, then took out balloon pig!! I give up!! thankfully Done with this episode, 😎 under average or not I’m done!
