Under rating threshold (show) Wave 18, 32759 points, 13609 candy, 2cats, 2ninjas. Rank General. Kept special up as often as I could, Did lots'a vertical movement to 'spread the love' as much as possible. Most waves were either dead or reduced by at least 75% as soon as they arrived onscreen. As long as you prioritize the Gunners the other spawns don't present as much of a challenge. For upgrading I put everything I could into Candy first and filled in the rest with what was left over. My reasoning was that not only would I get the upgrades faster but the candy would contribute to the score. Hope this helps.

Under rating threshold (show) Can't figure out what to do to level up faster, is it just play a whole heap of short games? Play a really long one? The levelling system seems inconsistent.

Under rating threshold (show) A fun little game, but needs the balancing that most have already said. 3 Ninjas and 1 Cat is demonstrably superior to any other possible combination. Vertical movement is too slow. Bullet patterns have too little variation. Why not more spread patterns, splash shots, homing weapons, rapid fire or, since half the enemies come from behind, why not a single unit that shoots backwards? Great potential--I hope it gets a sequel or an update.

Under rating threshold (show) I think this is great for what it was trying for-A fun little Halloween distraction. I thoroughly enjoyed the idea of a group, it fits with the theme and brings in the ability to mix and match abilities and stats based on your preference. The ninja is the public fave simply because spread attacks are a staple in scrolling shooters, but every character brings something useful to the table. Char select would’ve been much better if you see the character fire 4-5 times, then using their special during the selection screen. Also, the XP system does nothing but add artificial difficulty to the game, effectively FORCING people to grind out a couple ranks in order to have high enough stats to even think about beating the game. I would’ve preferred seeing the combat stats scaling much higher rather than having the bonus stats from higher ranks. That way you would actually notice a difference as your characters improve, and have more of a reason to take a character for their stats.

Under rating threshold (show) 2 ninjas in the back, 1 cat, and a witch make this game a cakewalk. For some reason the witch's effect and the cat's both stack, meaning you can get around that slow movement while covering the screen with bullets. (with a 2 second pause in between your volleys..) Other than that, I really enjoyed the game.

Under rating threshold (show) I agree with NanakoM, but I added one piret, two ninja and a cat, finihed all and achieved badge in survival. one think I'm not sure of, the max status to add is it +90. I finished the story with +90. Nice game and 5/5.

Under rating threshold (show) The guaranteed winning combination is 2 ninja and 2 cats: I was able to get >30,000 points on level 17. .............However, it is worthy of consideration that the witches' special is the same as the cats, but the witches shoot faster and bring "+20 SPECIAL" -- making the most important thing - your special attack- refresh MUCH faster.

Under rating threshold (show) Two Ninja and two Cats is also pretty devastation. The Ninja provide spray damage and rear attack, and the cats send the whole crew into overdrive, filling the screen with shots. One Cat and three Ninja, though, doesn't have the same punch... you need two Cats to get the superior Speed boost from the Special.

Under rating threshold (show) Very enjoyable game I played it a few times happily trying out different teams until I eventually just went for an all ninja team, could do with some fine tuning in the way you move around, mostly the slowness of moving up and down. Also I was thinking a sound or something coming up on the screen to let you know your special is ready would be nice, there were a couple of times where I was overrun with enemies and trying to avoid them/their attacks so I couldn't really see if my special bar was full and would try to maneuver into the middle for my special and end up taking a lot of damage because I didn't realise it wasn't ready.

Under rating threshold (show) How to get a 30k+ score in survival: 1. Pick 4 ninjas (cone attack, and special All Around Attack, very manouvrable), 2. upgrade candy droprate all the way first (this allows you to upgrade the rest faster and (better) candy adds to (more) your score). This gave me a 32k score on Wave 18

Under rating threshold (show) So aliens make contact and observe local holiday customs by taking candy from houses. Then four young punks get angry that they weren't fast enough to nab some sweet treats and decide to commit multi-species genocide. Along the way they discover most of the aliens tend not to get in their way, and only about a quarter of the aliens are actually carrying candy. Nevertheless, the children TRADE what candy they DO have in order to arm themselves with superpowers. There is a particularly dastardly deal to upgrade "candy," which allows the kids to plant more evidence on the aliens, providing self-justification for their xenophobic ways. Congratulations, my four young friends: for your insatiable sweet tooth you have single-handedly destroyed all chances of interplanetary diplomacy. Who, I ask you, are the real monsters? Great game, by the way.

Under rating threshold (show) 1 - This game needs major balancing. Some parties are impossible to score +30K in survival because 1/2 the enemies are just walking right by due to a lack of damage 2- Vertical movement in this game is HORRID, no matter how much you max speed, does not nearly scale as effectively as horizontal movement 3 - You need a 'current score' for survival mode, especially for those who are attempting the hard badge 4 - Terribly annoying almost dying just to mouse over the pause button (hint: there is a "P" and "ESC" button on the keyboard) 5 - Conceptually a great idea, 3.5/5 (if you fixed some of these things I'd give it a 5/5) LAST - 3 ninjas and 1 cat =MASS shuriken+ATK SPD=OP/IMBA/ETC
