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

Our strategy for Mine and Dine level 16-3 is to fire Big Brother head-on into the horizontal stone block in the left structure. This should force the tower rightward but also clear all pigs on the left side. If the middle tower still stands, lob the Yellow bird through its left side. Otherwise, attack the left leg of the far-right tower. The score in the video below is 156,090.

165410 with two birds.

First Big Red just slightly higher than in walkthrough – will roll over and take out middle structure (depending on your luck, of course!) Then yellow bird to wood piece just at bottom of right tower. Hopefully some will fall to the right to take out jewels.

2 birds, I threw the big fat red bird into the middle of the first tower. It does a lot of damage (knocks out everything but the far right tower). I think I just got lucky. I threw the yellow bird into the far right tower right above the square grey block & it destroys the rest including the gem on the right of the tower. I hope this helps as this is my first time posting. ;).

This was a really good strat thank you kkfan! I noticed the most damage and my highest score came from flinging Big Red right where the big piece of wood and the bottom piece are stacked! 2nd bird exactly as described! Gl

@kkfan. Used your method. Played all day long. I was stuck at 172k forever it seemed.

I would get a 120-125k first shot and then blow the second shot…..ever and over. I could only get the second shot when I had around 110k on the first shot. Nerves I guess.

Finally put both shot together big time. 127k first shot. Got the high score.

Thanks for the method, excellent method.

Congratulations @asher. My 16-3 stood as Top Score for 6 months….about 4k over #2. Considering how hard it is to put both shots together perfectly, I wasn’t expecting anyone would top it. Excellent excellent job.

Thanks, in fact it is a single bird shot.
You need to aim the big red bird to the first tower in the second from bottom large vertical wood and hope for a complete fallout.

this level is impossible to get 100% destruction in!! gotta be a bug!

Not impossible. Doing a walkthrough for this level is on our to-do list in the forum though.

By udippel

Yep. Must be a bug. Cleared all pigs some 5 times, and still get ‘failed’. Since I could clear everything until here, and can’t see any more pigs, I consider this a bug.
Any place where I could file it?
This is 2.0.2 on Android.

First, Pete was asking a very separate question. He was asking about the feather, not clearing the level for stars.

Second, in all likelihood the wood-encased pig on the far right is not popping. There has never been a reported issue with this level.

164,530 using all 3 birds and pretty much destroying everything.

Never done it in 2 birds. Tried about 50 times to destroy the 3rd tower with the yellow bird and it’s never worked… always left the the small pig on the right inside the wood square. Tried hitting it high, low, in the middle… no dice. If someone can explain exactly how to kill the 3rd tower with the yellow bird, I’d appreciate it.

I’m sure this is possible with one bird, and therefore 180k+, by aiming just above the horizontal grey plank; the bird should roll along it and fire through the second structure and have enough momentum to do some damage to the third structure. My best result saw the TNT (and therefore the small pigs on the left) survive, but that’s just bad luck, and the middle pig get damaged but not enough to send it to porcine heaven.

Sometimes, when you toss the big bird at the base of the first tower, the bird gets to roll down the slope and blast the TNT getting rid of the gold stone and the crystal. I threw the second bird at the last tower and got this score.

1. Big Brother straight across into the left structure and try to slide it across the horizontal stone plank where the center pig sits. BB goes through the first struction into the middle and takes out all the pigs and collapses both structures. As a result the tnt on the left is activated.
2. Yellow Bird into the far right structure and try to slide it across the horizontal stone plank where the pig sits that collapses the right structure and kills all the pigs. If the structure falls to the right the jewels will be hit.
3. Big Brother = bonus

Also used 3 birds with the third bird activating the tnt on the left taking out all the jewels and pigs. Bouncing BB off the lower left wall of the big rock worked well.

By udippel

It has to make with the screen in this level: There are some pigs hanging on a rope to the left that are in no way visible on an 800×480 screen. My first and only level so far with this predicament.
Once you *know* this, it is relatively easy to solve: Something needs to be rolling down the slope and exterminate the pigs.
Of course, the wagon with the TNT is likewise invisible below the lower screen margin.

You should be able to zoom out.

By udippel

Of course. Though I cleared some 5 series and hundreds of levels before; and never had there been a single pig outside of the screen area visible by default. So I never zoomed, or had to zoom, to clear one level after the other.
My excuses that I didn’t think ‘outside the box’ and expected a pig there in this particular level.

So maybe this can be taken as a Wishlist, to modify this level in a way that it is consistent with the rest.

This is probably a stupid question but how do you zoom in and out on a 3G Iphone? No matter what I do I can’t see the bottom of this level on my phone and I’m racking up points but I keep getting “level failed” and when I watch the walkthrough I can see the whole screen but I can’t see it on my phone> Thanks

Pinch in/out to zoom in/out. The same way one does on the web browser, for example.

I spent a week working on this level.. I come away with 3 methods that will all get you 165k + scores.

1. Is the method discussed most here in the kkfan thread above.. This 2 bird strat will probably net you the highest scores but like most methods you will need a ton of resets to get the setup needed for the second bird shot. The Big Brother bird is shot into the middle pile and must clear both sides out. A good score is 110k or better, if not just reset or practice the yellow bird shot. This Yellow bird shot is the more difficult shot. It’s very frustrating to miss after a good 1st bird score.

2. I dont think this Method has been discussed here.. Because of the frustration of missing that 2nd bird shot I decided to try reversing the strat. The 1st Big Brother is arched high over into the gap between the 2 right side towers. A well placed shot can completely destroy both towers plus the right side jewel. The bird should hit the hollow stone block and kick it out right while bouncing left to take out the left side. The next yellow bird is a lot easier.. Aim into the wood pillar just above the helmeted pig sitting on the left tower. This will kick out the support and topple the tower to the left and with luck fall down into the left valley destroying the TNT and every thing else there. My best score this way is 167k.

3. My 3rd method is the one where I scored my highest. Not the score I hoped for but good enough to move on from. I was surprised to score this with 3 birds. Use this method if using method 1 you leave the left side valley intact . If the left side tower is cleared and the middle is pretty clean go for your 2nd yellow bird shot hopefully destroying the right side tower, including the jewel. The last Big Bird shot is a surprisingly easy one. Just aim at the top little pig strung on the right valley wall. The bird will bounce back into the TNT and usually will also get both the jewels there. 30k+ of points are in that valley.

Good Luck here..

I have been using one bird to get the high score.

It must be precisely shot in the middle of the vertical block of wood, like this:

And then you will need a lot of luck…

Hope it helps.

Nice round number with 2 birds. My score after Terence shot was 126,610, which gave rise to good destruction on left and middle and it also got the jewels on left. Knocked right side over with Chuck for round 181,000.

Again so close to that puppy, but I am happy for now

@asher – Your method improved my score by 440 to 181,440. Your screenshot trajectory is really helpful. There is a sweet spot that results in the last structure being nudged, I got that many times, but the super sweet spot pushes it over to make the numbers sing! Thanks!

Used a different 1st shot…

High lob so that Big Red comes down just to the left of the triangle on the first tower. This took out both the first and second towers. My best score after Shot 1 was 121000.

Shot 2 similar to everyone else

Bird 3 = bonus

@mvnla2 While playing today’s Challenge,on my Thrive tablet,I experienced what I think could be a glitch,and I took a screenshot. As I was resetting the level for about the five hundredth time,part of it blew up. Most of the right tower blew to the left,over the middle tower,and took out all but one of the pigs in & on the left tower. This resulted in a NO-BIRD score of 80,510,(you can see all three birds still on the launching platform). After I took the picture I tried to use just one bird to clear what was left,but even with all three birds I couldn’t beat my previous score. Just thought you’d like to know.
