Danger Above Ham 'Em High

The Big Setup is the fourth episode of Angry Birds and consists of three themes with 15 levels each. This episode's prime focus and mainly used bird is Terence, the Big Brother Bird. In this chapter, the Pigs kidnap the Birds and steal the eggs. Terence doesn't like this, so he tries to fight back. During his journey, Terence frees Hal from captivity.

The Big Setup includes the ninth, tenth, and eleventh themes, each with 15 levels. The three themes take the player through previously seen levels from the first seven themes (Poached Eggs, Mighty Hoax, and Danger Above) which the Pigs are remaking. As the pigs wear hard hats, and the levels themselves contain construction sites in the background. It's now out on the Chrome version.


The following is from The World of Angry Birds Official Guide, as told by the Mighty Eagle:

  Just when I thought things couldn't get worse, Red and the birds have only gone and got themselves captured at the Cobalt Plateau by the pigs! The pigs couldn't believe their luck and with the Flock caged, they've grabbed the eggs. Luckily, help is at hand in the gargantuan form of Terence. No one knows where he came from. No one is even sure if Terence is really his name. All we do know is that he's a demolition ball of a bird. Those hogs don't stand a chance against this titanic tweeter!
