    what's the best strategy for medium?

    usually i'd just keep the same 'maze' layout i make with
    mostly gatling guns and rockets in the middle for copters.

    there's got to be a better way.
    nm i saw the strategy on the other thread. i beat medium with 499k

    same here, those helicopters are really what kill me, and i have the entire middle of the screen filled with rockets and they still get past towards the end. 250,000 mark.

    Level 100 - Hard

    After literally hours of playing this game, I finally beat level 100 on the hard difficulty.


    I don't understand how I outscored my level 100 score with a level 99 score. Does anyone know the formula for scoring?

    Maybe you were selling buildings.
    You get deducted from that.

    Selling towers deducts 1000 score points, I believe, and killing more enemies adds to the score points. It's possible you got to 100 with few lives left (leaving some higher scored enemies escaping) and selling a lot more towers than you did in 99.

    Edit- Damn, this game is so addicting.

    Are you building a strong maze? I tend to start my maze vertically, then alternate to a horizontal segment full of missiles and teslas, only to return to the vertical scheme afterwards. That way I make sure I get the early maze length required to endure the ground waves and get some good horizontal real estate to protect against air. I put goo towers, more or less, every 3-4 towers, and only upgrate the ones in the middle.

    would you mind taking screenies of the process? it's making me go crazy trying to find a good method.

    Massive sell-off

    Thats why! Thanks. I had to sell all my gunner towers in preparation for level 99. Its a huge wave of helicopters.

    Are you sure you want a screen shot of my layout? Isn't that part of the fun?

    I will tell you this. Forget the glue towers. They screw up your spacing of the runners. Especially with the helicopters.

    Also remember that you can alter the runners path by removing towers as they are moving through your maze. If you time it right, you can have them run through the gauntlet over and over. I only did this on 3 or 4 levels. But every little bit helps.

    I'm done


    I can't do much more than this. I really hope there is an update with more maps, towers, or runners. This is by far the best game I have tried on the iPhone.

    i finally beat medium a couple times this week. the real key and effective towers you need are the electrics. place around 8-10 throught the middle of the screen from entry point to exit point, and have a maze running up and down and up and down the screen so runners have to travel the entire screan and are exposed to more fire and electricity until they reach the exit point.

    I think to beat this game on hard you have to learn to juggle.

    For those that don't know:

    Juggling means to lay out the maze in such a way that there are 2 exits for the runners. Then when the runners get close to one exit close it off with a tower and the runners will turn back and head to the over exit. When the runners get close to this exit, sell the tower blocking the first exit and and block off the second exit. With practice, you can go back and worth multiple times.

    Then you just need enough missiles or teslas in the center to deal with the 'copters.
