The game does not need a powerful computer to play. Every computer will struggle eventually because the game has a memory leak. That's why as you continue to play, the lag continues to get worse. Memory is not being cleared out and continues to build over time. A more powerful computer simply delays the effect, still probably only slightly.
so far, I've found it best to just use basic towers. Since the price of all towers increase with the placement of any tower, all other towers get expensive quick.
What strategies have others found useful?
I agree with other that this does have potential to be a great series. Kinda reminds me of the "raw" Defender game that eventually turned into the Protector series.
The only thing I hope you keep if you create sequels, is to stick to your roots. The simple graphics and game play are what make the basis of what make this game good.
The game is actually pretty terrible, but I didn't stop until it was over. So at the very least, it's addicting as hell. I just hope a bunch of other developers don't pay attention to this games success and flood the market with a bunch of cheap, crappy games.
green acres and star room have both defeated me. I desperately need help from someone. What am I not getting? I put mostly blues on green acres, with a couple of fires, and a couple of the advanced units. Ive tried mixing in others as well. I upgrade evenly and only have only upgrade general. Any help appreciated.
I have been logging the levels as I play them. I have strength, weakness, immune, and flying for each round of the first 4 levels, and will probably have the rest of the levels soon. If anyone is interested in seeing or using it, let me know and I will try to post it somewhere.
I know I need to rate a game 5 stars (which I hardly ever do), when there are no badges, I have already finished the game, and yet I still come back for more... Great game guys.
On another note, I hate the "pick-ups" tasks (just personal preference), and I wish every race had a task to win the race instead of sometimes just top 2 or 3.
Finally got all the badges! 5/5 game.
I didn't even have to use any special agents or specialty buildings. That's one thing that adds to the greatness of this game. While I'm sure these things can definitely help you, they aren't required if you use optimal defenses on the harder badges.
