Now let the Power Up fun begin! The first of the Power Up Tutorial levels features the Mighty Sling Scope, acting like Space’s aiming dots it projects your exact trajectory and contact point.
We use it to aim Red slightly down, picking up all 5 cakes for 15K+.
The next shot is a bit tricky, but with the scope it is quite repeatable. Go long in a high arc barely missing the boulder to the right, red clips the glass and breaks it, then proceeds down the Cake Chimney while the boulder takes out the pigs.
The third red goes in a low arc to the first of the “bouncy buddy” areas, gaining speed as it bounces back and forth and taking out all three pigs there.
Finally, send another red in a high arc, he can hit the bouncy pad there and continue on to the pig without an unpredictable back-and-forth.
Three birds remain bringing the total to 105320.
Since Power Ups from now on are not only permitted but required, POWER UP SCORES MAY BE ENTERED! That’s a real treat for the hard-core ABN “Never PU-ers” and holds true through the remainder of the episode.
59080 was 2 stars and 60290 was 3 stars. @admins
106870/4 If you hit the boulder on the left side and get the red bird to bounce left you sometimes can get the pig under the “half flowing island” You need an other bird to break through the glass but in the end, the same amount of birds. The scores are higher I would guess due to more damage to the boulder? 2 pigs harder than 4 cakes?
107810/4. Thanks @rush for this strat. My score represents total destruction with 4 birds with the exception of the boulder, and I think any score over 107500 or so would be the same. Any score variations above that level are due to degrees of damage inflicted on the boulder.
Changes with the newest update include:
7 pigs instead of eight
2 pigs on wood piece blocks, not 3
TNT under the four cakes on the right side
A cake next to the single pig left of the boulder chimney
4 balloons holding up the pig, not just 1
So I used three pigs for my 111210 score. First took out the cakes, as in video. Second through the balloons then hitting the left of the boulder, as described by @rush above, and the bird falling to take out the single pig by the new cake (I did not get this cake.) The boulder falls to take out the pile of cakes and sets off the TNT which takes out the two pigs at the bottom of the glass topped chute. Final bird to take out two remaining pigs on the wood block pieces.
@grrtammy Could you let us in on your strat? You must have achieved total destruction to get that score. With the strat I am using, I can’t see how one can get more than 18K by destroying everything but the boulder and the glass plank.
Correction…not 18K, but 115K.
Hi @jrsquonk. I wondered how long it would take for someone to flag my score–less than 6 hours! It wasn’t total destruction, just 2 birds. Numbering the pits 1 through 5, pit 1 holding 5 cakes and pit 5 holing the cake stack and TNT. First bird glancing off the boulder into pit 3. In this case I didn’t get the cake. Second bird into pit 2. After taking out the 2 pigs, Red bounced out of pit 2 into pit 1 popping 4 of the cakes. 121K is definitely possible with a lot of luck and more skill at the first shot than I have.
Sorry, I didn’t have the presence of mind to get a pic of the actual carnage, but here’s a current screen shot.
Thanks for that @grrtammy! I will have a go at it. By the way, I wasn’t the one that flagged your score, I just posted the query.
@jrsquonk, my poor choice of words. No one flagged me on the leaderboard. I was expecting “How’d you do that?” But it happened even faster than I anticipated.
@grrtammy I can’t get a good bounce with a high lob, so I assume you came in low, got a lot of bounces off the pads, and then got a lucky one into the cake pit?
@jrsquonk, yep, come in low for the most bouncing and acceleration.
Thank you for the strategy post. I was unable to figure out how to obtain the bounce out of pit two so the score posted is one obtained with all the cakes destroyed (single one with a bounce off the pad) and two of the three wood pieces in pit two.
If the results of the first bird destroyed the single cake, then I would get the other cakes, then the pigs. If it did not destroy the single cake, then I would try your bounce shot.
thx to @grrtammy for details and strat.
i used 3 birds and 114k:
here my video:
So no way to disable power-ups here, it’s forced on you? I loathe you can no longer disable it and leave it be…
Wow, I was nervous when I played this level b/c I wasn’t sure I would be able to post my score! It’s sort of a good episode to take out those power-up frustrations from where they aren’t allowed. LOL
116310/3. I tried and tried to duplicate the @grrtammy strat, but I only got the bounce into the left pit once with both pigs destroyed in the pit just to the right of it. Even then, I only got two cakes. So…this score was achieved with 3 birds. The first went into the middle pit with the two piggies. Total destruction there resulted in a score of 14070. The second bird went into the leftmost pit to get all five cakes. At this point the score was 29570. The third glanced off the boulder, rolling the boulder into the pit with the cakes stacked on top of the TNT. The bird fell to the left, taking out the piggie and the cake. It was really hard getting both of them, but I finally got it. All that was left was the glass plank and the boulder, and both of those were damaged. I think this strat might be good for a few hundred more points, but that’s about it.
Used the @grrtammy strat, although inversing the steps as the rebound from pit2 to pit1 is definitely the most difficult step. Send first bird rather high on the bouncing pad on the right side of pit 2, after accelerating between the two walls and sweeping out the pigs and most of the wood it bounced towards pit 1 where it took away 3 cakes https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/basralocus/album/picture/26026/. Second bird sent on bolder taking away pig and cake in pit3. https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/basralocus/album/picture/26027/

The new level gives 2k less :/
