Tips to take down Wally Warbles

The most dominant level in this game is the level in which you must encounter Wally Warbles. Wally Warbles is a birdhouse. This bird is able to not only fly but also shoot unlimited numbers of eggs and feathers at you. Therefore, defeating this bird may be a challenge for you. I want to suggest some effective tactics that assist you in beating Wally Warbles more easily. The fight against Wally Warble is divided into three phases.

  • Phase 1: In the first phase, you must encounter the egg attacks of this birdhouse. If you get hit by these eggs, you will die. Therefore, try to fly up or down while shooting at the birdhouse. At the end of the phase, the bird will get angry and start a feather attack. Do the same to dodge its sharp feathers.
  • Phase 2: The second phase introduces five spiky eggs. These eggs fly around Wally Warbles and protect it from your attacks. You must find a way to destroy this spiky egg shield and eliminate the birdhouse.
  • Phase 3: Finally, in the final phase, you will see Wally Warbles lying on a stretcher. This stretcher is carried by two bluebirds. Although getting hurt, Wally Warbles still tries to attack you by throwing many objects which are a fish skeleton, mini bombs, an apple core, and a magnet. Try not to collide with these objects and shoot down this boss.
