Angry Birds Ham ‘Em High 3 Star Walkthrough Level 12-3

Our strategy for Ham ’em High level 12-3 is to fire the Red bird into the top of the left structure, pushing its roof to the right. The TNT should fall onto the pig below. Use the Yellow bird to pop the two pigs that remain on the right side. The score in the video below is 52,580.

I updated it on pc so cool.

Has anyone achieved total destruction with the mighty eagle on this level? I have tried and tried and only get 91%…. help??!!

By Wakkione

I have destroyed everything and still can only get 97%

By Wakkione

Yeah, I got it!

By Jay

Yup. Have all the birds hit the front most half of the material on the mountain. Then toss the eagle bait on the ground, making sure the angle is right so the eagle ricochets off the ground destroying all the remaining stuff. Guaranteed total destruction : )

By Gail

Thanks. First try, that got me to 98% from 95%. Will keep trying that approach. It seems to be the cement balls that are the tough ones to get.

By Cale

Perfect! Worked first time, after only ever getting 89% before. Thanks Jay!

By DMS

Last level availiable for me to get 100% with the eagle, probably played it 100+ times. I need video assistance hahah.

By DMS

Okay 100 more times later I got it. Now to wait for an update. Thank you Jay for the tip and thank you BirdLeader.

Alternate strategy:
1. First bird to hit the top right corner of the first structure. Pushes front structure to the right and debris could hopefully push the rocks down.
2. Clean up through fallen wood from the first shot.
3. Bomb the space right above the hanging TNT

Typo from written method above video: “pushing its roof TOO (to) the right”

2 Bird Strategy. 1st bird as in the video, but you don’t want to kill all the pigs, just push the first structure to the right, hopefully causing the last structure to lean to the left. 2nd bird fired up at a sharp angle then zoomed down at similarly sharp angle so that it shoots through the middle between the 2 long stone blocks at base of structures mounted directly on cliff faces.

This is where it gets frustrating, many times the 2nd bird will get stuck before smashing it’s way thru, other times it will make a surgical incision & fly straight thru with very little damage, & the 2 structures will merely lean towards each other & stop when they make contact (left structure moving to right above hole, right structure moving to left above hole).

The money shot is where the 2nd bird ‘struggles’ to go thru, just making it, causing a big hole. You then need luck with the right structure falling to the left, the left structure falling to the right, lots of debris falling into the middle & smashing. Am sure a much higher score can be obtained as not all the debris collapsing above the hole fell thru.

To be totally transparent I should also state that this level score was on my HTC Trophy Windows 7 phone. Besides updates from original version (stone blocks replaced by wood, wood replaced by glass in Poached Eggs that most Angrybirders would be familiar with, I have noticed at least one difference that can’t be seen between HTC & iphone. ie Mighty Hoax 4:18 looks identical on both devices but the bomb bird is simply more effective on iphone & high scores simply cannot be achieved on HTC. Am mentioning this as it is possible that the HTC may have a similar advantage on this particular level if others are struggling to get a similar score with this strategy. Pity that there have been updates & differences between devices as not everyone can enjoy the same potential to achieve high scores, the most notable example being Golden Egg 31 for which I have 1.9 million (34 people beating me but I haven’t updated my device….) which is no longer possible if you have the latest update. (less pigs).

Just fired up my old HTC (excuse the cracked screen) for a photo & will work out how to send it to the site.

Have to get Angrybirding again, used to play every morning & night on my HTC for which there was no updates for about 2 years from 1st release meaning I only had access to Poached Eggs up to Ham Em High which explains why my scores for these levels are way better than later levels.

Lastly if anybody knows how I can put my angry birds scores on 2 broken windows phones onto my current one would be appreciated. Tried zune, software now available for android but Windows phone last time I researched was not possible.

First bird at top of left-most upright plank, lots of structure should fall to the left, including the rocks. Shoot yellow low, aiming for the bottom of right-most two pigs, which will also cause the TNT to drop. One extra bird for 10k.

This is a simple level to get three stars. Getting a high score, though is a trickier matter.

For me, in addition to getting everything to move to the right after the first bird, I needed some debris to fall to the left, too. The debris to the left (a few planks), made the rocks roll down the hill and the planks were destroyed. This made a huge difference in my score.

Rank: Sling God with 68560 points
By wrw01 (@wrw01)Score: 57,270

With the first bird there appears to be a spot that when it hits the intersection of the horizontal stone plank and the tip of the wood triangle on the left side, everything moves to the right and the stone plank breaks. The score should be over 25-29k range if everything else falls correctly. I blew the yellow bird twice but do think final scores over 57k are very likely because when the plank does not break with the first bird most of the scores are in the 21-25k range. Also getting some wood and glass to roll down the right hillside can add a 1-2k. This was a difficult level to obtain a higher score.

Had 56.8k with above technique. This one produced the current score.
Zoom in and line up back top corner edge of black launch basket with the the dark blue line in the background. Minor adjustments may be need for the red bird to fly over the left structure and take out the two horizontal wood planks on the right side. Then fire the yellow bird into the verticle wood plank next to the diagonal plank. This should push the structure to the right, activate the tnt and take out the remaining pigs. Some debris may even move the stones on the left.

I revisited here to improve my 280 ranking. Improved to #20 by just resigning the desire to finish with 2 birds. I guess the very top scores had to be done with 2 birds, but that seems to be pretty rare to get.the amount of destruction with just the red and yellow birds.
My first bird is aimed at the horizontal wood support under the glass triangle block. The goal of this shot is to get the structure to moving right while undercutting the upper supports getting the glass and the top solid wood blocks to fall left, pushing the boulders off the left side. This is the most important shot of the level,as it sets up the next two shots. A good score after the 1st red bird could net anywhere between 20 to 33K.
The next yellow bird is shot into the debris to clear as much as possible. Hopefully the top stone slab that supports the top wood blocks has been destroyed or at least not blocking the path of the yellow bird.
The last bomb bird flys in low and drops the bomb into the small space over the TNT ..
It takes 3 well executed shots to break into the 60K range, but I found this to be the easiest method to get 60k scores.
Good Luck Moving on.

I used this basic strategy, thanks @pjdambra.
First to the end of the horizontal wood under the first glass triangle. Hopefully the upright wood plank is destroyed as well. Red usually bounces back to the rocks in front, & the horizontal stone from up top also tends to slide down to the left. If the rocks don’s fall off down to the left I reset.
This also rarely drops the TNT, which is fine.

Second slightly different, on a slightly higher trajectory than the first to go through the upper part of the remaining wood, a good shot will carry on through to drop the TNT. And if you’re lucky yellow will fall into the pit for a bit more damage.

Then the 3rd over to drop over the gap & hopefully ricochet into the top of the remaining right structure.
When I scored 69k both yellow & Matilda dropped into the pit, as well as one of the stone blocks.

It’s really hard to string 3 good shots together, & that wee pig on the far right is very stubborn.

I got close to 62k by shooting the red bird into the top of the structure so you get everything to topple I one shot. This gives you 20k bonus and over 60k total.

Alternate strat here. Only got 56K so far, but there is potential to get a lot more. The trick is destroying the wood in the pit. First shot over the first structure and into the space over the pit, taking out one or two of the right side piggies and hopefully at least damaging the glass pane holding the TNT rope. The next shot is the tricky one. Fling Chuck on a high arc and bring him down onto the stone slab guarding the right side of the pit. If you got rid of enough debris on the first shot, the slab and everything on it will tip into the pit for lots of points. With the third shot, shot Matilda low and drop the bomb over the stones, sending them to their fate. The rebounding bird will take out the bird in the left structure. See potential to get well over 60K here.

I don’t know how this happened, because I had Power-Ups turned off. However, I got one anyway just as I killed the last bird, so it gave me 10K for the extra bird I got through the power up. That’s now my high score and I won’t beat it. Anybody know how I can erase a score acquired through a power up?

It took a LOT of flings, but I finally got it. Didn’t get any debris in the pit on this one, but Chuck dropped in for a visit and was a rude guest…he busted up a lot of wood!

OK, the key here is not to get the debris into the pit, which is pretty rare, but to get Chuck down there. If you fire fast enough and the red bird is still alive in the right place, you can get both of them to drop and do damage in the pit.

We have a problem @sweetp, @admins.

Knight Bird has joined the nest in the last few days and already entered 26 high scores across 7 episodes, including this level. The scores appear to be mainly impossible unless power-ups have been used. This may be an honest mistake as there are many other scores that are realistic for a beginner. It’s not Classics, all the scores indicate ABO. Hope this can be sorted out amicably. Thanks.

Great score. Beat mine! I posted regarding this level (if you scroll up the post is still there) 15of Clubs.

I also was not using an iPhone (HTC Windows 7 phone) so it is possible that the scores we achieved are not possible using an iPhone. The HTC never got the update so some levels had stone which was later changed to wood. As such obtaining high scores simply was not possible with the HTC. There were also levels that appeared identical but high scores were simply not obtainable with the HTC vs iPhone. Obviously I don’t know whether this was purely due to the HTC utilising the original level versions or whether some levels simply play differently on different devices. If the latter it is possible that on this one level your android enables higher scores than can be obtained with iPhone.
Curious if you used the same strategy I outlined to get your high score. Congrats, I was the Sheriff on this level for many years!

@15ofclubs, as I said earlier, I followed the @comex666 video approach but the thing you have to bear in mind is that using Classics, the physics is a bit different and you just get more penetration firing chuck through wood. I am using an Android phone though, no idea about iPhone. Judging by your awesome score, maybe Classics and ABO are in close balance on this level. The 77k high score posted by Knight Bird is clearly impossible without Power Ups.

So by ‘Classics’ you are referring to the game prior to updates. Sounds like the consensus is the game plays the same on all platforms, the only difference being whether you’ve updated. Also appears levels after update are either easier to obtain a higher score or the same, except for this level.

Sorry, this is getting a bit confused. By Classics I mean the updated game released by Rovio in 2021(?) which at the time was called Classic or Classics and which only contains levels up to Surf ‘n’ Turf. Classics scores are recognisable usually because they are not constrained to end in zero. This game is now called Red’s First Flight and is only available from the App Store. Confusion arises because the older version of Angry Birds (2017 ending with Jurassic Park) which I have referred to as ABO (Angry Birds Original) is now being marketed as Angry Birds Classic on sites such as UpToDown. Clear as mud, eh? I have never thought any game played exactly the same on all platforms, the old PC version was demonstrably worse than Android on many levels.
As far as which levels have got easier or harder as you move from ABO to Classics, it’s a mixed picture because the differing physics can be very subtle – for example, sometimes it is better to push a piece of wood than destroy it, so making wood weaker (as Classics does) is sometimes a disadvantage. But on the whole Classics is easier – on my reckoning I have added over 1 million points due to the switch and certainly not lost that many.

Thanks for detailed reply. I had 2 devices (HTC phone & Apple iPod & recorded my scores on excel spreadsheet for each platform. The HTC was painful as I was unable to keep game progress when I broke the screen & changed to another HTC. There was a way but I never pursued it. The HTC never got updated levels (which is why I have many good scores for early levels), so I bought the iPod just for AngryBirds. Haven’t played for years but with the many levels added I should start again!

I was a little discouraged by total score as whilst I waited until I had a good score on Golden Eggs 31 (was 35th) before updating after that comparing total scores because of this glitch seemed pointless because of this level
