Whenever there's a farmer after a hoplite or two branches in a row, it doesn't matter how early I'm aware of the second obstacle, my character just does not execute the spear/duck animation effectively if at all.
Has there been a new update since I last played this? Something must have changed, because I'm lagging like a bitch now. If I take my fingers off the keyboard, my character will still be moving around for 3/4 seconds afterwards. Fame training is too risky like this!
If you're doing bad on a particular hole, you can quit via the bottom left button and then re-enter the game by continuing your current round. This will let you start the hole again without penalties. Also, the wind conditions change each time you do this, so you can keep 'refreshing' until you achieve favourable conditions. All this effectively makes it a 'hole-by-hole' basis for the hard badge (although you still have to play them in order).
Here's a tip to make the items you're supposed to collect move on their own, something which has helped me numerous times: Place a rectangle of walk planks around the item (let's say it's a crate), so that the crate is in the centre. Have it so the crate will sit on top of the bottom walk plank when you test it. Then get another walk plank and connect it from the bottom left corner of the rectangle to the top right so that the plank runs through the crate. When you play, the crate should now move leftward on its own within the walk planks. To get it to move right, connect the diagonal from bottom right of rectangle to top left. Hope this helps! It has got me many KISS awards!
32,006 points using the 3 ninjas and a cat strategy. The cat's special effect (rapid increase in your team's fire rate) wears off only seconds before your fully upgraded special bar fails, so you can use it very frequently. Try to max out your candy ASAP and kill EVERY enemy (I only let about 7 in total escape) and collect all dropped candy. You don't need to fret about upgrading attack or speed in the early waves as they are manageable with your base stats (my base stats were +75 with the General rank for anyone wondering).
1 cat and 3 ninjas was working very well for me when fully upgraded. Could use the cat's ability again seconds after its effects wore off. And then wave 18 happened. Is the idea to gather the 30k points before wave 18 (I was pretty close when I died)? Or if anyone can post how I'm supposed to deal with said wave, that would be appreciated, since I understand it must be feasible if there are 50 waves.
Finally got the impossible badge. Frustrating having to wait for all luck-based factors to come together for it; If I wanted a guard to turn left, he'd turn right; if I wanted him to move somewhere, he'd either not move, or walk into me whilst I'm invisible. On some of the later levels in particular, you'd have to wait 20 secs before you could even move and tell whether the mission was feasible. All of these things wouldn't be be a problem if there was no time limit. I actually think an assassin would be closer to 'ultimate' if he had to bide his time and wait for the perfect moment rather than rushing against the clock. And one other thing, if there's going to be a 4th: when one guard sees you and the alarm is sounded, there should be a delay, however slight, for the other guards' responding and firing. Thanks for the game!
