Tips for the impossible badge (Part 2): If you are having a hard time with a level, just keep restarting that level until you get a shield power up and you should have an easy time with the level. It's very possible that you can get like 6 shield power ups in a row, and you can complete levels with a 3 star rating without even dodging a single bullet, because of multiple shield power ups. Remember, in order to get more points and increase your rating, you must get diamonds, so use bombs when necessary, so that you do not loose a heart. When you use a bomb, it is probably on a hard wave, so a shield or sword will probably drop, allowing you to finish the next wave easily. Anybody can get the impossible badge to be quite honest, and using the method mentioned above is definitely easier than memorizing bullet patterns of each level for hours on end. Good luck getting the impossible badge, and + This comment to keep these tips alive!
Tips for the impossible badge (Part 1): First off, you are allowed to use cheats and handicaps to balance those cheats for the score multiplier to get the impossible badge. The best cheats are Foes dropping both Swords and Shields (Shields are way overpowered, swords help clear waves faster), with the more items modifier to get the items more often (Get the extra bombs cheats just in case, but it is optional). In order to get back lost points for these cheats, get the handicaps that increase bullet speed, and apply them all. You should get a total score multiplier of 1.29x (With 2 extra bombs). I got the impossible badge by using NoLegs with the Shooting Star Sub Weapon along with the Pink Pillow Costume. This combo has the most dps, functionality, and increases power up time. + This comment to keep these tips alive!
Don't know if it's a glitch or not, but once you unlock the right side of Carestia, you can drag your screen to the top and there will be a place you can click; your ship wont appear there but if you press play you play the level up there and if you beat it you can go on, skipping a ton of levels if your gear is high enough. I went from difficulty 23 to difficulty 35, and started sequence skipping, but I stopped after I unlocked too much, so I could follow the story.
There should be a time wasted counter (Basically time spent actually playing the game with it open) and a total time spent counter (The time spent on the game even when not playing the game) This would show me how long I have been playing and prevent cheaters from cheating, because if you were to look at their total time spent counter it probably would be longer than how long the game has actually been on Kongregate.

(There goes my life)
Commander: "CALL IN THE AIRSTRIKE NOW!!!". Airforce: "But sir, there's only one marksman that stands in your way!". Commander: "DO IT NOW!!!!". *Commander kills the marksman once the airstrike comes*. Airforce: "Dammit commander, that's the third time today..."
LOL this game is fun, its just a bit tedious. Sadly, nobody is trying for the badge. Most of the people are talking about bubble tanks 2 and 3, I don't know how you people mix those together, this one is clearly harder than 2 and 3. Why are you guys ever raging in the comments?
Easiest way to win: In the beginning, make reactors and walls all the way outside, at the maximum where you can build. Add rockets behind the walls. Then spam little gunships and build repair turrets where necessary. The gunships will inhibit the growth of the enemy (because it is overpowering in the beginning). Best if done with heavy industry upgrade.
