Bad Piggies Flight in the Night Bonus Level 4-IV (4-4) can be 3-starred with a single contraption but two runs. Pull the floating blocks with the ghostly motorcycle. Cut the rope at the end of the first road to let the piggy go. You then have a choice: Grab the star box, or avoid Krak-Snap.
If you have a different strategy for completing this level feel free to leave a comment below.
This is a very amusing level. No need for two runs, though – a contraption with two one-wheeled carts should get the star box easily without breaking.
I did it in 1 run. On the bottom I built a car of 3 metal blocks with the powered wheel and another wheel. Then I built a plane on the top with 3 wood blocks and attached two large groups of balloons to the back of the plane. I connected the middle block of the plane to the middle block of the car with the rope. Then I used the powered car to tow the plane and cut the rope like you did. The planes tail dips while “flying” so popping the balloons once you hit the wind lets the tail get the star as you coast to the goal.
I used the same contraption, but thought of it completely independently! I posted a picture as well:
Same construction as in video, 1 run
similar to video, but affixed rope so it hung from airship after slice– touched star on way by but blocks missed crevaise…
If you time the balloon popping exactly right it can be three starred in a single run.
Bonus levels 3-I,3-II and 3-III are missing
here’s the link to 3-I.
If anyone is interested, here is the technique to use for bonus level 3-III:
Use a three box contraption with the power wheels on the top and the red rocket in between them pointing left. In the boxes, put the egg first, then pig, then the engine. On the bottom are the small wheels with the blue rocket in between also pointing left.
Fire the blue rocket just after starting to take you to the tunnel on the left. Use power wheels to climb through the tunnel. The trick is to turn your contraption upside down (putting the power wheels on the bottom) after you hit the small ramp on top. You want to hit that ramp with some force to flip your vehicle. This takes some effort. Once you clear the ramp (now upside down), momentum should roll you down where you can get the star.
After you get the star, use the power wheels (now on the bottom) to take the vehicle back. You have to be careful to be able to clear the large hill on the right without flipping over again. Get lots of momentum while you are still within the tunnel where the star is but shut the engine off as you start to climb that hill and let momentum help you crest it.
Once you do that, you can simply ride through the last tunnel to get to the end. You may need to fire the power wheels at the end to get up to the finish line.
Use the same contraption to beat the time, but this time fire the red rocket after you clear the big hill and are into the final tunnel. This will zip you to the finish line. Whew!
I did three stars in one run with an even sillier contraption: four wood blocks with the powered wheel and all the motors. On top, four metal blocks are tied to the bottom with the rope and supported by most of the balloons. It should just lift the lower cart. Run the cart to the end and cut the rope. Be ready to pop the balloons as soon as you clear the cliff, and quickly lose altitude. If you timed it right your pig and his prize will gently hit the star and the finish line end over end (no krak-snap!). I love ropes.
