Angry Birds Mine and Dine 3 Star Walkthrough Level 16-1

Our strategy for Mine and Dine level 16-1 is to blast the Yellow bird through all of the stalactites in the middle of the level. To pass through a stalactite, you must pass through the top of it. Fire the first Red bird head-on into the left structure, causing it to topple onto the TNT below. Fire the next Red bird into the top part of the last tower. The pig inside should pop, and the bird should push the large pig off the ledge. The score in the video below is 109,860.

More often than not the center lower tower will topple… Usually left sometimes rightward. When it falls left (approx 50 percent of all games) it has a good shot of hitting the TNT taking out the center, maybe the right tower, and rarely the left. This is with no birds thrown. So just throw first bird where it’s needed and thats it!

The Eagle for this one is persnickity. I had to get every single piece of debris before I got the feather.

This feather is the only thing I have left to be back at ‘fully complete’ status. It is annoying me greatly

This is bugging me too. How is the percentage calculated in general and why on this level apparently 100% means literally 100%!

Hi. I nailed ME on this after many frustrating attempts by pretty much following the video, but also flinging the last red bird at the far tower, bringing it into play as a bowling ball. Then activate ME, shoot it high and bounce it off the rock above so it falls back down right into the small trench just to the right of the remaining stone blocks where the first wood tower was. The eagle took out the stone and most of the remaining junk, and made the red bird zing all over the place taking out random debris. Finally I had the elusive 100%. Hope this helps someone.

By kev

exactly the same but with the last bird aim slightly lower and 114680 is possible as you still have one bird remaining

@loax. ??? How do you mean the tower will topple ? By itself like in some of the other levels ? I’ve never seen that. How long do u wait for ? My highest score so far and this was a fluke I’m sure cos I can’t repeat it, even after about 30 mins on it every day, was only just 3 stars @ 106 450 !!!! Help !!!! It’s driving me insane (as usual) !!!! Lol

@FlyHi, If the center is going to topple on its own, it will happen within 15-20 seconds of the start. But it doesn’t seem to happen all that often, and only once have I had it also set off the dynamite.

FINALLY SUCCESS !!!!!!!! After trying on and off all day. 113670 !! Without the ‘glitch’. – YB into the stalactites. 1st red into 2nd block on left hand tower which fell over and crushed everything else. 2nd red over to RH tower leaving 3rd red for bonus points !!!!!! YAAAAAY. lol. Now to 16-2 !!! OMG – starting to be a bit concerned at how addicted I am :)

I just got 118,860 the same way after many tries. Not once did the middle tower fall over on its own (I wonder what device loox is using where it does, but it apparently doesn’t produce a very high score even when it does). These stalactites seemed easier to bring down with one bird, or else my aim is getting better. Then you have to have luck that when the 1st RB knocks down the left tower the TNT is detonated. Finally, taking out the right tower with the 2nd RB takes a very good shot, plus the last falling stalactite having eliminated the block to keep the helmeted one from rolling off. So, it takes three good shots and quite a bit of luck!

120940/3 with that, quickly after i switched to lobbing the 1st to (having its apex) just above and to the left of the leftmost stalactite before accelerating it. the intended effect is that apart from taking down all stalactites also the middle structure is largely taken out (typically for a ~45k score). sending the 2nd to the top/middle of the hollow square gave me 89k after the 2nd in the case of my current best.

I have finished all levels for Mine and Dine and I can’t play level 16 or 17. I get a message Coming Soon. How can they not have the last two levels available after all this time. They obviously have let all of you play these last two levels. What do I have to do to unlock these last two levels? New to Angry Birds.

You need to update your app. Go to your applicable App Store and check for updates. If you have other questions, be sure to include which device you are playing on.

Thanks for the quick response. One problem though. My cell service is inactive and I have been playing on my HTC Incredible with service that was from Verizon. Can I just go to their site and update the app or do I need to have service activated?

The second shot on this video was excellent. Virtually nothing in middle section left. I have been playing for hours doing exactly as the vid shows, and I cannot seem to manage 87k after second shot. Vid had potential for 118-119k, if only the last column would have toppled.

Anybody notice that if you fire a bird at the small shovel below the slingshot, a little globe pops up? I accidentally clicked it away before I could get a look at what it said.

The strategy is patience. It takes 3 good shots. It seems the ABN video is the defining video for this level. It appears the stalactites have to go inorder to get the right side pigs. Activation of the tnt with the falling wood from the left tower provided some challenges. I,like Bill above, had a good second shot with a tnt activation that made a lot of points from debris destruction. On the third shot with the Red Bird if it hits in the upper edge of the long wood horizontal board to the right of the big pig, that structure and all the pigs does go to the right.

You will get it, you always do.
The 2P’s naturally develop into 3P’s:
Patience, Persistence and as a result we Practice.
Found that if we can do the first two, Practice is our end result and we all do get better and we eventually defeat the pig to obtain our end goal.
We can get into 4P’s, 5p’s and 5p’s + B, but I only use those when I am on the verge of “brain dead” where I cannot “see” the best strategy to get an above average score.
Good fling’n and have some fun with it.

Negatory, wrw01! Great strat, and I think yours is better for points than mine, but one does not have to take out the stalactites to get the right side pigs! See alternate strat below.

Pretty much exactly like the video with a few tweeks. Second shot I like to hit just below the wood square to damage the horizontal wood piece, the structure will still fall to the right but less seems to get into the way of the tnt, I think, doing it this way, I had 87k after my second shot when I got my high score (just like the video) except on the third shot it needs to be a little lower to hit the side of the building and not the roof part. Video is a potential 119k score.

Also, I did not see the middle structure collapse or move much while I was playing recently, not sure if this structure can collapse on its own anymore.

Perseverance is the most reliable strategy on this episode, regardless of all the stupid scores the game gives you trying to discourage you, ignore it and keep on pushing until it gives, even if it drives you insane accomplishing it, I had a 3 star score about 5k below average, then it threw me a bone at about 2k below average figuring I would just take it and go, well, I can most certainly assure you that I was not satisfied and just kept on insisting until it had no other choice than regurgitating a decent score, that’s a good Mama Wolf, feed your cub.

I wish I had read your comment @mars805 before this happened to me for the second time! Red Bird just kept on rotating around the shovel and was still doing it when I returned after two hours. I took a screen shot the second time so I could, in all good conscience, post that score. Good to know the double forward arrow will clear this wierd perpetual motion action as I plan to return to this level and know it’ll probably happen again.

Discovered this strat by accident when I inadvertently hit the screen…

Launch Chuck nearly horizontally and activate immediately. He will zoom through the middle pig in the first tower, and go all the way to destroy the platform holding mustache pig. MP will then drop to an untimely death. If you’re lucky, debris falling from the first tower will set off the TNT, taking out the middle tower and its resident piggie.

Second shot, launch Red into the horizontal cement bar in the first tower. If you have removed enough of this tower with the first shot, the remaining tower will topple, taking out the bottom piggie and maybe getting the crystal bonus.

Third shot, launch Red II in an arc just under the stalactite into the wood slab just to the left of the piggie in the far right tower. This will take out the last piggie residing there.

4th bird is a bonus. No stalactites were harmed in the execution of this strat. However, I don’t think you’ll be able to get a high score out of it.

I should clarify here. Launch the first red bird into the butt end of the horizontal cement bar of the leftmost tower.

125548/3 using Classics for top spot.
1st to stalactites, 2nd to front tower, 3rd to rear tower.
I have had the rear tower collapse on 1st bird but fluffed second shot. More than 130k is possible here.

Using Classics… I tried to have chuck hit the stalactites on a slightly downward trajectory trying to push the last stalactite on the right into the mustache pig and small right wood house. Twice I had the small house collapse but could not get the 2 birder. I believe Desperate Dan is correct, not sure that 130000+ is possible but certainly 127,000 to 130,000 seems doable.
