Under rating threshold (show) Strategy I used: Boiler = 4 A, 4 E, 2 I, 1 L, 2 R, 5 S, 2 T, everything else is combined to make as many special versions of those tiles as possible. At the beginning of each level, open the first few chambers with small words, then spam "REALIST" repeatedly until all 8 chambers are open. From there, type "ALTERNAT" with all kinds of suffixes (-e, -es, -ed, -ely, -ing, -or, -ors, -ion, -ions, -ive, -ives, -ively). Then just spam words with lots of the chosen letters in them, as quickly as you can type and with no regard to what's actually showing. Should get you through any level up through 40 if you can type fast enough.

Under rating threshold (show) My own panic tactics were to send messages to the bugs. Most commonly: 'Death', 'from', 'above', 'you', 'relentless', 'bastards'.

Under rating threshold (show) Besides, it would be nice if the boiler would be more efficient : 4x level 1 letter = letter level 3 directly. It's quite boring to transmute eacht time to jade or brass

Under rating threshold (show) There are way too many words that are actual words that the game is not accepting. I mean, it accepted "french" but then wouldn't take "italian." That makes no sense.

Under rating threshold (show) Fill the hopper with 5 of each F L and Y and some specials of those letters. The F and Y are worth 20 damage and the L 10. Then hammer out words like Fly Flyer Flying Flyby Flyboy Flyover Flypaper Fretfully Fully Fluffy Lullaby Slyly and so on. My average word damage is 55+ usually. Its a cakewalk then.

Under rating threshold (show) I just think the cannon should be better placed, since I just can't shoot at the spiders that are running away with my files since there are so many in lower lines in such a way that the shots just keep hitting the wrong targets. If not for that, it would be 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) So glad that is over. Fantastic addictive game. Wish there was an Impossible badge ( complete 120 levels ) Mix of iron brass jade A E R S T H D - That's all I used. Very easy. You can use something like scrabblecheat.com to get good words, trick is to type those 7 letters TWICE, you get a heap of long easy to type words from AERSTHDAERSTHD. Then add S,ED,EN,ES,ING,ENED to words that contain ONLY those 7 letters, but you want words 6-10 letters long, POWER. Enjoyed & rated 5*'s
