This is my walkthrough for the Mighty Hoax level 5-17 for the iPhone game Angry Birds.

You can get all three stars in this level by only using five angry birds.

wpid 5 17 Level 5 17 Walkthrough for Mighty Hoax in Angry Birds

  1. Aim the first angry bird at a high angle right at the small pig. You will smash the small pig.
  2. Aim the second angry bird at the same spot as the last one. You just want to cause damage and clear out blocks.
  3. Aim the third angry bird at the same spot as the last one. You will take out three pigs in the middle and expose both pigs on the bottom.
  4. Aim the fourth angry bird a little further than the last one so you can take out the pig on the bottom right.
  5. Aim the fifth angry bird a little closer than the last one to take out the last pig on the left.

If this strategy worked for you, or even if it didn’t, please leave a comment below and let me know.

    I am having the same launching problems! Very irritating. However, when they do launch at a high angle, I have no doubt this strategy will work! :)

  12. Elad says:

    after 3 months(!!) I’ve passed it, thanks to you!!

  13. Iago says:

    By aiming three birds at the far left side from a high angle, I was able to get this using only 4 birds. The fourth bird was used to get the pig on the far right. The trick is to hit the speed boost a fraction of a second before impact with the structure.

  14. manu says:

    Yeah-…………..–……………….Yup, its helped me cross levels that are difficult……;-)

  15. shania says:

    I can’t get the birds to launch.

  16. shania says:

    I can’t get the birds to aim at an high angle. What’s the problem? Can anyone help me . Im getting stressed.

  17. Dave says:

    What is wrong with this level? I can’t get the things to even launch correctly. Is there a bug in the software?

    • SHEILA says:

      Dave, I have the same problem you are describing. I can’t get the birds to launch properly. It makes me wonder if I can even get through this one. I’ve tried for several days.
