Naboo Invasion 1-7

Dear Reader,

Another day, another badly twisted metaphor. This level see the introduction of catapults, which fire plasma energy type ball things around the place when released. They are useful.

Mustard,the new mustard.

Aim your first bird at the the mustardy coloured splodge on the left, cutting the rope and releasing the energy ball thingy. Once release the ball needs to hit the pink splodge, thence to cause havoc, falling through the middle of the structure destroying all before it. Anything over about 57,500 should be enough for three stars. Easy.

More soon Dear Reader.

Naboo Invasion 1-6

Dear Reader,

Having in the last post suggested that using the force in and up and away from application was the best way forward, let me immediately retract... To get your three stars here it has to be a one bird finish and the only way to do that is to use the force differently.

It's a beautiful day.

Your single Obi-Wan needs to head for the purple splodge and then use the force to force debris in the direction of the green splodge. This way ensures the glass covering the water gets shattered and all the pugs end up in a watery grave. Anything over 45,000 will get you the prize.

More soon Dear Reader.

Naboo Invasion 1-5

Dear Reader,

It's not just using the force that is the key to this, but how you use it. Don't just remove the pigs but use the force to gain maximum damage to get another three stars. As a general rule, forcing debris up and away from you seems to be the most effective route and this level is no exception.

Pink and Orange are SOOOOOOOOOOO in this season!

Your first Obi-Wan should hit the left most orange splodge, scattering wood, glass and metal in the direction of the left-most pink splodge. The second should hit the remaining orange splodge, scattering towards the other pink splodge. Anything over 46,000 should be sufficient for you to move on to the next challenge.

Naboo Invasion 1-4

Dear Reader,

Obi-Wan Kenobi makes his first appearance on this level. My favorite bird! You will only need one young Obi-Wan to complete this level.

So, the red blob is where Obi-Wan should be when you tap to use the force with the green blob. Everything will die and explode.

More Soon Dear Reader.


Naboo Invasion 1-3

Dear Reader,
In a flurry of updates here is another one. A quite straightforward two bird finish here. Look for maximum damage and a score over 46,000 and three stars are winging their way to you.

Its so easy, baby!

Hit the red splodge with the first bird, which will should open up the way for the second bird. Blat both towers with plenty damage and you will be on your way to the next level.

More Soon Dear Reader.

Naboo Invasion 1-2

Dear Reader,

Been a bit busy lately playing the game, rather than talking about it. So here is another level for you to three star. This one is all about the timing. A two bird finish will get you three stars only if you get enough points. Above 39,000 seems to be the mark.

Feel the force.

The first sabre wielding bird needs to hit the red splodge, unleashing the sabre as he hits it. It's important that he then goes on to make a decent hit on the rock as this will take out the second pig. If this doesn't happen keep going until you get that right.

The second bird needs to obliterate the third bird along with it's house. This is all about the damage, so letting the sabre loose as late as possible is crucial.

Naboo Invasion 1-1

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the Angry Birds Star Wars II walkthrough. We begin with Qui-Gon Jin wielding his trusty light-sabre. You have three but will only need one.

Strange shade of pale blue marks the spot.
Aim for the odd coloured splodge, ready to deploy the light sabre as you hit the structure and all should be good. Three stars in your pocket.

It's Here!

Dear Reader,

Have been a little distracted over the last few days. Maybe it's the onset of autumn, or maybe it's something else. 

Oh, I know, it's the release of Angry Birds Star Wars II. A bit of a mouthful and a bit of a game. In an attempt to be up to date with what is going on in the world I thought I may as well start three starring every level in this as well. A little video below to get you excited if you're not already...

This involves the creation of new tags so a reader can find what they are looking for. There will be tags identifying different games, different paths, etc. Hopefully this will become clearer as this starts to take shape.

Poached Eggs 1-21

Dear Reader,

So, the last level of World 1, I might get a little bit teary. Like the last level of subsequent worlds it is a little complicated. Lots of birds and quite a lot to get right for those three stars. The aim of the first blue bird is straight-forward enough.

Serene, isn't it?

Just fire into the glass at the bottom of the pyramid aiming to clear as much out as possible in the resulting carnage. The not so randomly placed blue spot marks the spot.

Use the red as a path clearer, you want as little debris as possible obscuring the base of the tower. Hitting the pink splodge should leave the next yellow with a clear shot.

Still a lot of smug piggies.

This yellow bird is the key. It is vital to clear the piggie at the bottom of the tower, otherwise you will not be able to execute the remainder of the plan.

Time to wipe the smiles off their faces.

From here, with the blue bird you have a couple of options. The glory shot is to aim for the middle of the tower housing the remaining piggie. Physics and a bit of luck may get the last piggie squashed.

Not smiling now.

If physics is not on your side, don't panic. Use the first of the remaining yellow birds to finish things off and the three star par score should still be in reach.

Poached Eggs 1-19

Dear Reader,

After the multi-screen shot exertion of yesterday this level is back to gorgeous simplicity.

Just get the first blue to destroy the pane of glass marked by the slightly untidy purple splodge. The send the yellow in on the same trajectory and the piggies will be away with the fishes.

More soon Dear Reader.


Poached Eggs 1-20

Dear Reader,

So, I had a little bit of fun with this. Most of a train journey again, getting this right. Just the two piggies and five lovely yellow birds. Follow this and you will only need two and get the three stars you rightly deserve.

Step 1: Quite straightforward, hit the blue splodge.

First of all you need to hit the blue splodge just right which will yield a result similar to the next screen shot.

Step 2: pink splodge, amazing.

Now, you will have to aim slightly higher, hit the pink splodge on a trajectory that will destroy the blocked marked in orange. This will cause the remainder of the structure to collapse on the two little piggies. May take a few attempts to get dead right.

More soon Dear Reader.

Poached Eggs 1-18

Dear Reader,
Much complication involved in this. So much so that I consumed an entire train journey putting this together. Also I have had to opt for multiple drawings as my artistic skills could not convey the concept in one picture.
We begin with four little piggies wrapped up in a wooden tomb, with five yellow birds to do the damage. You're going to need some of them...
Step 1: Green woolly ball
The first shot is pretty straight-forward. The aim here is to remove the lowest bird and clear some wood for the next bird. Just aim for the green splodge.
Step 2: Orange woolly ball.
Second shot, looking to remove the next lowest bird, again, easy enough.
Step 3: Red splodge and all will be well.
This last one requires some accuracy... To kill the remaining piggies you will need to hit the red splodge just right, otherwise you won't get both piggies. Nobody said this was going to be easy.

Poached Eggs 1-17

Dear Reader,

Three little piggies, did not go to market, instead they holed up in a wooden tower. Not for long though.

A surprisingly tidy green splodge
Throw the first and second bird in the line of green splodge and this should take you safely to the par score of 53,000 for the three stars.
More soon Dear Reader.



Poached Eggs 1-16

Dear Reader,
A little persistence required here. Five yellows to get the four little piggies in their wooden house. You may only need two.
Red is the colour for splodge
Send the first bird to the red splodge taking out the left hand column of birds. The second bird should follow pretty much the same path. A few attempts will be required to make the required score of 64,000. Don't worry, it will come.

Poached Eggs 1-15

Dear Reader,

Glass, word, concrete and four angry blue bombs waiting to fly. To get three stars, you are going to have to use some of them as well.

Blue is the colour.

The blue target area is where your first salvo of birds should land. You can get the required score of 40,000+ with two or three birds from this angle. It all depends on the exact outcome of the impact of the first bird. If you manage to topple the middle tower, taking out the left and right bird after the first shot then a two bird finish is on. Similar points are available with three birds as long as you inflict enough damage with the remaining shots. You may need to finesse the trajectory slightly for the remaining birds to get the desired result but is should be straight-forward to make the required mark.

More Soon Dear Reader.

Poached Eggs 1-14

Dear Reader, 

This may sound a little sad but this level provided me with something that I can only describe as a very good day. Having three starred this level some time ago I returned to it to write this post and found a one bird finish that had eluded me before. Instructions below...

Patience is all you need.
Precision really is everything here. Attempting to get this right shows just how sensitive the physics engine is in the game. Hitting fractions up or down will not get the outcome you are looking for.  The pink ball of wool is indicative of the shot, but, I warn you, you may be there a while. You can still three star with two birds and much less pain, but this method will net you an extra ~6,000 points, which is gotta be worth it in the end.

Poached Eggs 1-13

Dear Reader,

Piggies have got themselves holed up in a glass and concrete structure, very clever. Two blues and two reds doesn't look like the most promising arsenal.

Aquamarine, light blue, I don't know.
Worry not, just ping the first blue toward the pale blue squiggle, release the three very late and you shall destroy the upper layer of glass creating pippie destruction in your wake. Little bit of precision required but no biggie.

Poached Eggs 1-12

Dear Reader,

How does the saying go? Piggies in glass houses shouldn't throw stones? Never mind. Three blues and a red, you should however just need the first blue.

Gotta love a natty purple squiggle.

Aim for the natty purple scribble and release the blues when you are close, this should net you all three piggies and three stars to boot. Deep joy.

More soon Dear Reader.

Poached Eggs 1-11

Dear Reader,

A red bird, three blue birds and four little piggies today. Don't worry about the blue birds, you won't need them.

Ball of wool, ball of wool.

Just send the red flying toward the orange ball of wool and all shall be well. Red will shunt the top of Jenga tower onto the two piggies below, the debris removing the remaining piggie in the process. Easy-peasy.

More soon Dear Reader.

Poached Eggs 1-10

Dear Reader,

New birds, new challenges. Our blue bird, who splits like a missile that hasn't been invented yet loves to break glass, but is pretty much useless against everything else.

Hit those squiggles!
Send your first bird in the direction of the orange splodge, when you tap your three birds should splat across the area poorly indicated. This will need to cause the stone area to collapse removing one piggie.

The second blue bird should be aiming for the pink splatter zone, killing the second piggie. A score in excess of 55,000 should do the job.

More soon Dear Reader.

Poached Eggs 1-9

Dear Reader,

Another day, another three piggies as the saying goes.

Having stretched my artistic abilities recently this one left me a little disappointed.
After the considerable challenges of the previous level back to a straight-forward one bird finish. Aim for the yellow custard pie, which is attempting to indicate the top left-hand edge of the plank and the effect should be a one bird finish. Anything over about 50,000 should get the three star reward you crave.

More soon Dear Reader.

Poached Eggs 1-8

Dear Reader,

Three piggies, a structure of some description and some rocks. Four red birds to create some havoc. To complete this with three stars we have to think outside the box a little.

Lines and everything. Stretching my artistic talents.
We have to hit the boulder, smack in the face, causing it to tumble down the right side taking out two birds. Meanwhile, our intrepid red needs to tumble down the left side, taking out the rest. 

You can try this using the trajectory badly marked out with the flat line. This will achieve the first part but not the second. To make this happen we need to "go aerial". Using the angle marked by the red line gives us all four piggies (eventually).

Took a bit of work, this one.

Poached Eggs 1-7

Dear Reader,

Hmmm, so we have three little piggies, four red birds and a lot of glass...

The pink ball of wool is very fetching.

A one bird finish will get you those three stars. Hit the pink ball of wool and the two birds will fall to their deaths, and the middle bird will be destroyed by the impact. Easy.

More soon Dear Reader.

Poached Eggs 1-6

Dear Reader,

What have we here? Two little piggies and four red birds to some damage.

Creative, two colours required.

Two birds required to complete this one. One hits the red splodge and another on the blue splodge. The order is unimportant. After a few attempts you should make the required 35,000 to do the job.

Poached Eggs 1-5

Dear Reader,

So, for this we have six little piggies quite well protected in a cocoon of stone, wood and glass. Four red birds available to do the damage. You will only need one.

Pink is king!
Destroying the wooden plank by the pink splodge will release the boulder which will trickle down and flatten all the piggies. May need a few attempts to achieve three stars though as depending on the exact point of impact, you may not inflict enough damage for the magic three stars. 64,000 is the number you are looking for.

Poached Eggs 1-4

Dear Reader,
So, four red birds and one solitary piggie, wrapped in a blanket of glass, wood and stone. How hard can it be. Well, not very hard at all actually.
Green splodge marks the spot!
Just two reds in the marked spot, the first will clear the glass, the second will have enough momentum to collapse the stone onto the poor little piggie. Easy.

Poached Eggs 1-3

Dear Reader,

After the high levels of precision required by the last couple of levels this one is a bit of a breeze. Four red birds are provided but you will only need one.

Impact anywhere in the red splodge area and your bird should cause some carnage, rebounding off the structure to nail the two naughty piggies. All you need to remember is to clear the wooden ball with the shot, that won't help you. Anything over 41K should get you all three stars.

More soon Dear Reader...

Poached Eggs 1-2

Dear Reader,

You would be surprised how difficult something as seemingly simple as a short blog post with a picture can be. A phrase that could easily be applied to this level. We have several birds, five in fact, so you would think this would be easy. Well completing is easy, but the magic three stars are not so straight-forward. This beautifully annotated (not) drawing may help.

A little out of the box thinking is required here. Red birds, although largely useless, do bounce well. The key to complete is the bounce, which should take the tallest pillar, knocking it onto the right-most of the small pillars, then allow the domino effect to take place, knocking the middle pillar down. Which should disturb the left-most pillar just enough to disturb the remaining pig, which will slowly, with a degree of inevitability roll to its' demise.
