Bad Piggies Ground Hog Day Bonus Level 1-IX Walkthrough

Bad Piggies Ground Hog Day Bonus Level 1-IX (1-9) is solved in two steps. Beating the clock is extremely difficult, so make sure your contraption is fast and balanced, feathering the gas for smoothness. The same contraption can get the box, just stay low through the middle section to loop-the-loop.

If you have a different strategy for completing this level feel free to leave a comment below.

Yeah, extremely difficult describes the time trial. I finally made it with my a tenth of a second to spare.

I ultimately found the time trial too daunting after many, many fruitless attempts, so to beat the clock I ultimately went over the top (!). To achieve this, I put the two engines and an unpowered wheel in the back, and the pig and a powered wheel in the front, with the TNT right behind the pig. Briefly let off the power when approaching the second gap, but otherwise just use full power all the way up the slope. Then, as the cart flies through the air at the top, detonate the TNT when the nose of the cart is pointing down fairly steeply. The pig+box+wheel will then be fired straight down and to the finish line.

This strategy is extremely easy and extremely reliable – I can get it just about every time. Unless you like the challenge for its own sake, don’t bother with the headache of driving an overpowered, unwieldy cart underground.

Rereading my comment, I did a poor job explaining the cart. From left to right, it’s simply:

Top row: empty
Middle row: metal box with engine, metal box with engine, metal box with TNT, metal box with pig
Bottom row: unpowered wheel, empty, empty, powered wheel

Thanks @austinrhl ! I also tried to speed the pig down to the goal with the TNT but couldn’t figure out how exactly to build the cart. Finished it with about 0.02 left :)

@AustinRHL — Thanks! Got this method to work. Took me many tries. Maybe after you have timing just right it is easier, but video method is even harder.

@AustinRHL, many thanks for posting your strategy. As you said it is easy and 100% reliable.

By @hearami05

thank you! @AustinRHL, I was about to bash my head against the wall trying all sorts of combos. 1st shot your way worked 100% and levels now done.

well I done it with barely a second left, used the strategy like this: , it passes the top path, unlike the video. NO NEED FOR TNT THOUGH. It just worsen things

@Nacho18 what did you mean when said “26 seconds to spare”? Isn’t time limit 10 sec? Well I guess you were just kidding.
@AustinRHL strategy works 100% and I got it in first attempt on iPad. So far I haven’t open this level on phone but I believe it works fine for all devices. This I said after reading that same contraptions don’t work same on different devices (which is strange).

I didn’t find the time trial difficult at all with the method I devised. It’s the same rig as the video, but with the TNT in the rear center box. I revved the engines full blast, going up the upper path, then detonated the TNT halfway up. I had 2 seconds to spare.

Time Trial reached Thanks vid!

Finished it with .67 seconds left after a few tries.
3rd row empty
2nd row 4 steel boxes, from left to right:TNT,engine,engine,pig.
1st row left to right:unpowered wheel, empty, powered wheel, powered wheel.
That machine barely does wheelie so it’s rather easy to drive. TNT autoignited when landing for extra speed boost (somewhere in the “cave”, below the crystals).

By Dino Leone

10 seconds exactly. You can’t get any closer than that!
