The general strategy for Ham ’em High level 12-4 is to loft a Yellow bird and accelerate through the middle structure. With a little luck (see method #2), you can detonate the central TNT and clear the level with a single bird. Otherwise, fire a Yellow bird into the top of the first stone tower and detonate the TNT beyond. The score in the video below is 81,260.
Method #2 yields 87,950 using one bird, which is just about the same as the method above. It took me about 10 tries to do this level similar to the walkthroughs. The big stone triangle in the middle kept getting stuck between the two long support boards, so be sure to take the one on the left out first.
Grrr, Im struggling with this one !
Have cleared it many times, but always had to use 2 birds and never scored above 75,870, just cannot get the TNT to go off with one bird, yet ! ;)
Ive been aiming for the right spot all day, even before I saw the walkthrough above I had figured out what needed to be done, just have to keep trying, or I wont be allowed to play tomorrows until I 3 star this one ( my rule for myself, I could if I really wanted to, but I wont ;) )
80,350, 3 stars, that will do for me, this has been another of those annoying “I never want to see this one again” levels !
It gets a bit old when you can clear it most times, but cannot get 3 stars after over 100 goes !
Third try after watching FujiToast’ video and it worked! 90300 with one bird :)
got three stars using two birds (79230). bird in the stone on the left didn’t die with the explosion. shot him with a second bird. still got 3 stars.
I tried this about 13 times, then on my next try I shot my bird then I looked away to read a comment on the computer and when I looked back at my phone I had 3 stars and 86100 points.
After that many tries I missed my 3 star hit!!
I love it. I was playing one of my hardest levels, days of attempts and hours of trying, my baby son started crying and as I stood up I accidentally launched a bird while dropping my phone. Picked up phone and saw three stars. Just love it.
Lol @darknight0dc same exact thing just happened to me..I threw my first bird as usual for the umpteenth time..I looked away at t.v then looked back and had 86k+ :)
Srry oops 85k + above average though;) yay!!
This level stumped me for the longest time. I must have tried 300 times over three days or so. I had the technique figured out but even when busting through and blowing up TNT I would end up with one or two pigs left over on the left side. I tried taking out the left upright most often and occasionally going through the top. What finally worked was almost an accident. I shot bird almost straight up but with less than full force, when he reached his apex and started down and was angled toward the left upright board I pressed the screen and he went right through and blew up the whole place instantly for 86080 points and 3***. (Android G2 T-Mo/ATT?)
duhhh i did this level with 2 birds but the score was 80610
Does anyone else have a problem with the “World of Tanks” advertisement blocking half the walkthough? It would be OK if I could close it but it loads too wide for the screen and 9/10 times I can’t “x”/close it because the “x” is off screen.
I know we need ads but surely they’re not supposed to block our viewing of the walkthroughs. This does not just happen on this level – it seems to happen on all those that show “World of Tanks” ads. Most of the other ads do not intrude so much on the screen.
Is this fixable please @birdleader?
All YouTube ads are controlled by YouTube alone. If it is too wide to see the X, you should take a screenshot next time and send it to YouTube.
If the yellow bird hits the top of the wood plank on the left side of the “V” that produced an explosion that took out the pigs. There is a fine line between that plank and the shorter one to its left. Hitting that one also had the same results. It does not occur every time.
Has anyone had the middle pig hat fall or any other unstable instances here?
Thanks also @wrw01 for the advice I am struggling for average on this one ..
88730 1 bird exploding the tnt.
finally one birder, hit TNT thru roof not from side. 85,460
Working on old levels to improve scores.
On these older levels, working to improve above 1,000+ place; I am happy to improve to top 300 or so.
To my surprise, i hit the top score for this level!
I just followed the walkthrough #2 and used posted hints and pointers.
Just kept mindlessly repeating first shot (while on phone call). Rapid rinse / repeat
Almost reset before I realized I scored higher than normal!
There is proof with pic.
@admins : Re-doing ABO levels and noticed that the top score on this level seems unreasonably high (11K above second place). Player is newly registered so maybe a genuine mistake? If it’s legit, sorry to bring it up. Thanks.
@peejaydee27 I’ll take a look, thanks.
Thanks @peejaydee27. Taking a closer look on this and some others.
@PeeJayDee27, and anyone who is interested, I contacted the member and I’m satisfied that the score is legit.
Here is his screenshot: https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/cedlanz/album/picture/16290/

Many thanks @sweetp. Kudos to @cedlanz then on an amazing score. I do note however that it has been removed and @diannas is top score now.
@sweetp @cedlanz Seriously, I simply can’t believe that this top score is possible. I see there’s a screenshot (although not a tally), and I am not suggesting there has been a conscious cheating.
So, what if you do a good one-birder, and then accidentally hit the PU bomb-bird button, but don’t fling the PU bird; would that give you an additional bonus bird? If so, this can go unnoticed by the player. Just trying to figure out an explanation.
Thanks to you @SweetP and @PeeJayDee, this score was a one bird shot but as I explain it was obtained several months ago so I can’t explain the way I used. (All my scores are without use of power-up bonus)
Shallow angle barely over the top of the first structure of stones. Once passing over the top, accelerate to take out horizontal wood piece holding up the triangle stone. Chuck should follow through and take out most of right side, while the triangle stone drops onto the TNT taking out the right side. I think 96K+ is easily feasible with this method as I had a few wood pieces damaged but unbroken.
***drops onto the TNT taking out the left side.
This is how I did it for 94660, currently 2nd on leaderboard. Still over 10000 behind the leader. Great score @cedlanz
Seems like this strat may be the best way to make a run on cedlanz’s amazing score. I played it zoomed in to get the lowest possible trajectory over the top of the first stone structure. I also actvated Chuck late, with the intent to ge him to pass through wood and land in the vicinity of the bottom right pig. The following screenshot shows the trajectory, activation point,and Chuck’s final resting place for how I achieved my top score.
You can also blow the TNT with a straight shot just over the little stone boulders. Outcome is more or less the same as the walkthrough. I scored 88780 points
high arc, must hit the long vertical-wood, left from the tnt
like this video with 92k.
don´t use power-up.
I think the most likely explanation for the high score on this level is a score of 64K (which is quite normal) and two double counted birds. @gladvold has another possible explanation. We have the screenshot, so it isn’t a typo of some sort. I don’t think 104K is possible without some sort of glitch. That being said……the only one who would really benefit from removing @cedlanz ‘s score would be @comex666. It isn’t like comex is really in desperate need of another puppy lol.
By the way…..I have never experienced the double counted bird thing myself, but I have had the opposite happen at least once. I was watching the score closely because I had a good fling that should have been close to a top score, but that one time the sling birds were not counted at all. It might happen more often than we think as it usually wouldn’t be very noticeable.
The stone triangle’s ability to not fall down is uncanny.
One bird strat as described by @comex666 with Chuck hitting the top of the long vertical wood slat to the left of the tnt, and falling to the left so that the stone triangle falls directly onto the tnt, works well in Classics.
