Angry Birds Birdday Party Cake 2 Level 4 (18-4) Walkthrough

The best strategy for Birdday Party (Birthday Party) level 18-4 is to fire the Blue bird into the left tower, splitting to destroy the ice on both shelves. Launch the Orange bird into the bottom part of the middle structure, expanding at dead-center. The expansion should result in a massive amount of damage. If any pigs remain, use the Blue bird as necessary. The score in the video below is 88,740.

Pretty much the same as the video using 2 birds but with slightly different angles.

First bird aim for the horizontal board supporting the ice and the pig on the left. Split them so that two hit the ice/pig area and one hits the ice beneath the board. The key is to make sure the cake is destroyed for the bonus 3K.

Second bird uses almost the same trajectory and hits near the wooden base at the bottom of the middle structure. Inflate it upon contact and it should get the pig in the ditch on the left as well as pushing everything towards the right.

I’ve done this using a third bird as well if the tower on the right isn’t destroyed. Even with a third bird you should get well into the 80’s.

I’m so excited as I have my very first top score! Whew, I have played this level for 2 days to get a score of 105760 2 birds.

The strategy is similar as above but I’ll try to be specific.

The first bird should just clear the three balloons closest to the platform, expanding AFTER they pass over them, striking the middle plank with one above and two below. If you wait for the “breeze” to blow the balloons toward your catapult it’s easier. The top cake MUST break on falling. the next shot is the absolute key. the orange bird is launched so that it strikes at the lowest horizontal plank nearly on it’s end. I expand right at that level rocketing that plank to the right, annihilating the rightmost tower and everything else beyond it.
I am quitting till someone else tops it but I am convinced that 2-3 thousand more may be possible.

Congrats on the high score! I have a few second place scores so maybe one day I’ll be lucky enough to earn a top spot.

For your strategy on this level, what kind of scores were you seeing after the first bird?

Simple strategy to follow and very well explained. Couldn’t get as high of a score, but at least it’s above 90k. Thanks!

Great strategy @swelld. Worked very well and you provided a clear description. The second shot with Orange Bird provides various types of destruction. Twice there was an explosion-like effect when hitting the small end plank that eliminated everything except for the bottom left pig. It was not a high-type explosion but one that pushed everything to the right with a lot of force. Seems the bottom left party pig was having to much fun to go away.
Eliminated all the pigs and a lot of debris with two birds and obtained 93K

Eek @swelld and @wrw01 I know it’s been a long while since you were here right, but I’m trying to get above avg scores and I’m well a bit confused ( ha I know that’s not a surprise for those that know me ;) ) but I can’t figure out what board your all talking about aiming the OB at? Is it on the left or middle? I’ve tried various boards but I’m still needing the 3rd bird to clean up the right side! Any help would be much appreciated, and @swelld that’s a mighty fine score you got! I’ve only ever gotten one #1 score myself and I took a nice screen shot of it so I’d remember once one of the cyborg flingers takes it away!! :D. So congrats and I hope it stays forever for you!! Hehee

If you can believe I’ve refused to leave the level yet as I’d love to break 100k if I can! Now I will have a much better idea of where to hit! Thank you very much I sure appreciate it!

@swelld congrats on the high score that started it all for you. And thank you for the wonderful detail you always provide. I think I found that sweet 2nd shot you were talking about, inflating the OB right by the edge of the middle lowest horizontal plank. That plank shoots out really fast to the right like an arrow & demolishes the right tower, pretty neat to see. It’s hard to see the exact point, the OB inflates so fast, but I’ve managed it a few times. Twice the bottom right pig didn’t die, otherwise I would have had over 104k.
Hope your 1st top score stands for you :)

Thanks for the strat @swelld. I agree with your strat but not the reasoning. The orange bird shot works because, 1) It cleans out the piggie from the left pit when it expands, and 2) It sends debris into the right pit killing that piggie. The real damage to the right tower is done by the deflating bird. However, 108K is 108K, and that’s pretty good on this level.

If you’re tired to follow the strategy above (without luck as me – second pig never dies) You can try a completely different approach with a target of about 95-100k points:
– 1 bird at about 45 degrees (at zoom in when bb is in the white part of cloud) and split over middle tower. You should obtain at least 15k, usually 17k points when right pig and birthday cake are destroyed.
– OB almost vertically (until “the nose” of the bird touch the sling) and after glass plank is broken, inflate manually over the horizontal wood plank above the second pig. This should push first and second tower (first to left second to the right)simultaneously killing also the second stubborn pig.

I tried some of the above strats, but none of them raise my score, so I’ll just leave with what I came. Too bad though, I would have wanted to at least get another 3-5k.

Standard strat, quite “obvious”; tried to destruct remaining wood after 1st bird, deflating the 2nd not too late.
