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) If you want to win really easily, get 3 Ninjas and either 1 Fairy or 1 Cat. The game is a cake walk after that. I didn't die once with the 3 Ninjas + 1 Cat team.

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) @ LazyPeanut: You could still use Cat, Witch, Ninja and Pirate. That has about the same effect as NanakoMs team with one cat and 3 ninjas. Actually i found that pirates are a nice addition to ninjas, because they fill the holes in the shooting pattern of the ninjas.

Under rating threshold (show) I don't like the fact that the upgrades reset in story mode for each run. For survival I understand this but I feel that story mode should be more casual gameplay then having to grind it out for the minimal upgrades we get from ranking up.

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) I read a lot of the comments/advice before trying for the hard badge, so here's my two cents. To get the hard badge I used 3 ninjas and a cat. Made all the waves relatively easy until wave 18, where I got slaughtered almost immediately. Thankfully, I'd reached 30,000 during wave 17. I had tried many other formations before this one, and the only other one that got me close was 4 ninjas. With all the other formations I could barely pass wave 10, if that. The cat is useful for the later waves when the enemies have more hit points, especially the slug/goo blobs that chase you. I just used the special whenever those enemies appeared, and it took them out quickly. Good luck and happy gaming!

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) the Hard badge was actually quite easy to get... a class is only good if they have atleast one of the following: special basic attacks, buff for the party and/or something to kill enemies behind good are: ninja, cat, witch usefull but not that great: rabbit, knight rest is pretty much useless.... my favourite team is cat + witch in the back and 2x ninja in the front got me to 30,000 points in survival no problem

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) I used 2 cats in the back and 2 ninjas in the front. I had the upgrades fully maxed on wave 12, and had 30,000 points on wave 17. I think if you don't have it by wave 18 you'll be in trouble because the waves start to get difficult (I lived on multiple occasions with 1 hit left). Just be sure to strafe up and down the map when you use your special to take out all the mobs. If you need any advice, message me. :P
