Angry Birds Ham ‘Em High 3 Star Walkthrough Level 12-6

Our strategy for Ham ’em High level 12-6 is to loft a Yellow bird downward through the two left legs of the main tower, causing it to fall to the left. Loft another Yellow bird through the far-right horse to clear the remaining two pigs. The score in the video below is 67,040.

I hate this level. Almost as bad as 20 in Seasons.

I agree with Bird Leader that Method 1 is easier and will post higher scores.. The second yellow bird shot is tough and requires some luck.. The first shot is easy and occasionally almost gets all the pigs but the far right one.. I don’t think it’s impossible not to do it with just one shot. I come close a few times but had to use the second yellow bird to knock off that pig.. My high here is 64,140..

As all discussions go, people will disagree. I believe the first method is harder because of the second “skimming” shot. Skimming a structure with a bird hoping it will clear through to do more damage seems to be more difficult than a direct slam.

I second that. There seems to be more chances of getting higher scores with method 2 because of the destruction of more debris.

Why do I only see 1 method everyone mentions another? @Amslimfordy

Back then, a second strategy was offered. It has been scrapped since.

I like to hit the top triangle stone to clear the right side of the level, then kill the last pig and/or knocking over what is left of the tower.

Gained 4k with the video above. Worked great. If the far right pig rolls to the right many times it will ge stuck on the wood block. Try to destroy it straight on.

1. flat or high arc. 2. flat arc. Sometimes 2nd from the R (sitting on the ground) pig will be kill with 1st shoot (both type). This allow for better 2nd shoot line at last R horse pig.

One birder, thrown just like video but got lucky and debris spread out left and right to take out all piggies. I’m sure higher score possible with another bird perhaps.

On a revisit. Not too difficult I didn’t think. Important to make sure that the first bird scores over 30k and then a successful second will get over 65k.

71k/2 by varying on the video strategy as follows:
1st) low arc, speed up at descent to hit tower such that bird follows through, below thick horizontal wood onto thin right diagonal one. not infrequently this gives good 28k+ destruction with 3 rightmost pigs still alive (correspondingly more if some of them were taken out);
2nd) slightly lower, speed up immediately toward `head’ of horse (or rather just below it to hit the leftmost pig); hope it continues through in some way (e.g. launching the `ears’ to the right and bouncing itself to the next `horse’, or slicing through to `legs’ of the next horse bringing it to its `knees’ taking out the pig on top of it).

before, i had struggled with this level and after many tries had only gotten a fair score of 67k by following the video strategy. changing into the above i was able to increase my score via 68k, 68.5k, 69k and 69.5k and finally 71k in two hours of play. so reasonably repeatable, but still needs luck (or more precision). for both the 69k and 69.5k scores i had 29.5k after the 1st with three pigs still alive (my best being 31.5k then but had also several 30k+ scores), but the 2nd took the rightmost pig way down in different ways. for my best score i had 39k after the 1st with only the rightmost pig alive; maybe the 2nd could have been better (fired it a little bit too low i think, through the `legs’ not the `body’ of the rightmost horse). probably current (72k) top score can be beaten with this, but i stopped after getting 70k+, happy to have finally found a decent strategy.

From my Leaderboard score date, it looks like I haven’t worked on this level since July 2011 & I’m thankful @vuelva to mock a mockingbird worked so hard to find a slightly different strategy.

After perhaps 10-15 min during tonight’s Challenge I managed to improve old Android phone score of 64920 to 68050 while flinging on iPad. I will add that shot #2 requires the debris from shot #1 to fall leftwards & fairly flat so that it’s possible to get the correct low trajectory for shot #2.

Twice when the debris from shot #1 fell to the right it also took out 2 of the 3 piggies leaving only the 1 on the far right. I imagine with enough shot 1 debris falling to the right a 1-birder is possible, but with the scores I had it wouldn’t have been 70k.

@vuelva Thanks for the great strat :-)
The last few challenges have been most frustrating including this one ,until it wasn’t :)
First bird as you descibed ,through first 2 uprights under the glass ,the vertical bit of wood next to the little pig fell in such a way that it pushed against the little horse on the left that then pushed on the left most horse and rider killing them ,then the top did some good damage falling slightly to the right ,score was 31k after first shot ,Second shot was abit higher than other attempts as in photo and is the first time it went through the horses neck and still had the power to go under the front legs of far right horse

By to mock a mockingbird (@vuelva)

glad it worked for you, and good to know the 72k top score could indeed be beaten by that strat (excellent score @xebic88 !). because of that, tried it myself again for an hour. had ten or so 2nd birds going through the horse’s neck and under the front legs by accelerating immediately (needs both precision and luck) but each of them starting from at most 28.5k after the 1st, resulting only in some scores just over 70k, so was unable to improve.
