Angry Birds Mine and Dine 3 Star Walkthrough Level 17-4

The best strategy for Mine and Dine level 17-4 is to fire the Boomerang bird backwards, spinning it below the slingshot platform and into the bottom-left structure, triggering the TNT. Fire the next Boomerang bird head-on into the wooden block above the large boulder atop the level, causing debris to trigger the TNT in the middle. Bomb the encased pig to finish the level. The score in the video below is 97,440.

Pretty much the way I did it. That first shot is a tough one. I got over 70,000 with that shot, probably by pure luck. Second bird I also shot backwards and wiped out all but the right-most pig. Bomber sorted him out leaving yellow for 100,750.

Similar method. 108410 but with 2 birds.

1st bird. Same… Shoot backwards under platform into TNT.
2nd bird. Dont boomerang. Just shoot it straight for the big pig on the upper right platform… Done right, some debris falls leftward onto the other TNT killing all the rest of the pigs.

Duh. Shouldve watched the video before posting.
Second bird just like the video. With luck, though it can wipe out the left tower and all pigs for a 2 bird solution.

What actually tipped me off to following the method that you guys have mentioned above was a curious shovel that happened to be pointing to the left. I noticed in another level that a shovel was pointing to a spot that turned out to be the key to a high score. Is this a coincidence or what?

By Franchize

Im with you on the Shovel! I was thinking, thats a strange place to put the shovel. I was actually trying to figure out a way to get through/past it, and then thought, ok im just thinking crazy. lol. Never thought to go backwards under it.

I’m proud of myself for finding that Boomerang solution on my own before going to the video… I like to complete these new levels on my own before coming back here to see just how I did compared to others. Then work on my scores afterward..

Can’t do the backwards bird on the iPhone!!! Is there any other way to get 3 stars on the iPhone?

If it is possible to get 3 stars without the backwards Boomerang Bird, I’d be very surprised. I think it is necessary. It is possible on iPhone, but requires a good deal of timing. Note that the Boomerang Bird is off-screen on all platforms, not just iPhone.

I did get three stars without utilizing back-boomerang:
Boom1: upper right structure
Boom2: take out shovel.
White: downward through gap and last second bomb so bird takes out TNT and jewels.
Yellow: center structure.

I’ve since improved my high score with backwards, but I think I was in low 90k’s.

By Angry bird jj

Fling first boomerang bird into pig on upper right platform and falling debris hits other pigs below. Shoot second boomerang bird straight into closest pig, getting rid of all blocks on top leaving just concrete slab above TNT or part of concrete slab. Drop bomb onto flat platform detonating TNT and destroying everything above it. Took a long time to get it. But I got a higher score this way than with backwards boomerang bird method.

By wanda

thanks so much for this tip! I hate the levels with the green birds, always have, probably always will :). I have been stuck at 91500 trying to follow the video. Now, I am going to try this method. Thanks again.

By Jeanny

I freakin hate the boomerang birds I tried one of the methods that was posted here but no luck is there another possible way without having to fling the stupid bird backwards?

By hamguin

You can use the boomerang birds as straightforward kamikazes in this one, no boomerang required. See the comment from “Angry bird jj” above, which details where to aim them.

It’s how I first got to three stars on this one. I have to admit, though, I do really like the off-screen, backward boomerang which I did not find on my own, but learned about here.

By bluebird

I finally got 3 stars after trying the backwards method mentioned on here even though it’s more difficult on the iPhone. It worked better for me than the kamikaze method.

I achieved my score using the same method as the FujiToast’s video but managed to break all the crystals with the 1st boomerang and the 2nd boomer took out what was left of the left tower as well as everything else as per the video negating any need for white bird. This was the first time I’ve had to use a RRS (Remi Reverse Shot – see ABN’s Glossary). I play on a PC with a wide screen so unlike in the video/phone devices, I could see exactly where I needed to hit the reverse as the boomerang bird doesn’t have to go off screen.

Even with being able to see when to hit reverse, this is still a difficult shot. I agree with Habanero, Bird Leader and Egeves, it is a great shot and gives much pleasure when perfected. It didn’t always work but I basically pulled the slingshot fully back in a straight line then dropped it just a fraction before firing it. I didn’t hit reverse until it just passed the first wide black fissure in the rock. This gave me an approx. 85 percent success rate at hitting the TNT & the crystals.

It’s funny, I started trying this level without the video, and was unable to come up with that solution myself. But once I watched the video, and in an uncanny stroke of luck, I got my high score (116k) the first time around. So yes, it was done just like in the video.

The video provided the best strategy. Used 3 birds. With the first boomerang bird if pulled back almost straight, with a very slight upward tilt, and activated just a little off screen, the pattern seems consistant on taking out the lower level. The second boomerang bird provided the most challenge in getting the big rock to roll and hit the tnt.

I hate the boomerang bird!! This was the first time I can ever remember having fun using him! And @wrw01 it’s thanks to you helping me figure out how to fling him just right! So Thank you x like a million!! OB add another! I think we are going to have to pitch a tent in BP to finish off this tab wrw01!! LOL ;D

@kimmiecv Thank kimmiecv. This level can be frustrating but after the first few minutes it turns into fun with the Boom bird going off screen and not knowing when to activate it. It provides a little suspense to flinging. Tent yes, may have to see if they lease a campsite…ha, ha!!! Did we drain the BP yet?

Hmmm. I was stuck at 106k, and out of boredom with doing the same two shots as described at top by loox, began playing around. I sent the first bird to the far right tower to see if I could get behind. No go, but it did scrape the roof, almost pulling the structure over. Started over, this time to see if I could get the right structure to fall left by scraping the roof. It mostly worked, and did a lot of damage to lower structure. Followed up with the reverse remi to finish off for 112k.

I’ve used the same method as the video, and it’s always worked. But for some reason, I don’t remember a small piece of wood in front of the boulder. Is that a new item that was added on the last ABO update? The best score so far is just over 100K. This is driving me crazy!

This level seems to be easier now. First bird reverse boomerang (it seems I have to aim lower and reverse quicker than I used to do.) Middle tower seems to be less stable, easier to be knocked over with debris from TNT.

121400/3 for the daily challenge. not the best of scores, but just to say that 120k+ scores are also possible with 3 birds (in this case the middle tower didn’t collapse after the 2nd but already had 95k destruction, so sent the 3rd to destruct it).
