Under rating threshold (show) The War Against the Balloons was going very badly, until that happy day when our scientists constructed a bold new defensive weapon. Since the deployment of the Row of Giant Fans, our country has been at peace.

Under rating threshold (show) Game is not really difficult, but it's probably way too long if you are going for the impossible badge. A good tactic on later levels seems to be to focus on the clusters of balloons more or less ignoring the bigger balloons. Just let your reinforments deal with these untill you have cleared the sky of the small ones. Thunderstorm and fuel of war are no harder than the epic campaign. So may as well start with the epic one, wait a long time and then do the other campaigns (otherwise games becomes seriously boring...) Oh and i could REALLY use a couple of super monkey's here...

Under rating threshold (show) If you guys are going for the impossible badge: -There is no use to play in easy mode, as soon as the elite mode is unlocked go ahead and make the full campaign. You need to do it to access thunderstorm campaing. -Also, the Elite campaign is a bit challenging in the beginning, once you start stacking up xp it will be very easy. -If you have trouble beating for the first boss: Put a lot of points in accuracy, damage, reload, pick up freeze cannons+triple cannons. During the map, build structures in all slots ( i go with 5 triple cannons+2 freeze cannons (near the enemy side). It will run out of ammo before it reaches you, giving you a second turn to terminate the bastard.

Under rating threshold (show) Even if we lose a level, we should be awarded experience. It sucks when you spend 15 minutes on a level and have nothing to show for it.

Under rating threshold (show) The impossible badge should be called the "I stole your life" badge, because levels got so damned long by the end, I thought I'd die of old age before getting it. :/

Under rating threshold (show) No need to worry about difficulty in the Fuel of War campaign, it's probably the easiest of them all. You get to use your air support way faster, and they only cost 500 points each. Plus you start out with 5 armored oil rigs, so you'll make about a million points per level, and the bosses will be as easy as heck if you upgrade your armor and winged bombers (not that /that/ is really anything new)

Under rating threshold (show) The "secret roundabout" way for the second badge is to complete the first five levels with five stars and play the secret level (rather than the boss). You'll get the second badge that way, too. Please vote me up, so people know about the second badge alternative!

Under rating threshold (show) If i was the last surviving balloon pilot in an entire attacking force i wouldn't keep going forward into the solid wall of flak. Oh no no. I'd turn right around and bomb my army's command post. Their commanders ought to be executed for extreme ineptitude and stupidity.

Under rating threshold (show) This game was awesome and all, but after a while it just gets to where I'm trying to burn through levels because they no longer get harder, just more annoying. It would be great if you could upgrade your buildings so that they would start at a higher veterancy for those later levels.

Under rating threshold (show) Too. Friggin'. Long. Seriously, every level in the latter half takes 15+ minutes - after the first boss the game isn't even challenging, it's just an endurance test. Shoot gun, mash some support calls, occasionally plant a new turret, repeat for 5 hours. And of course the Impossible badge makes you do that THREE TIMES. The only thing sadder than that is how despite the literally mind-numbing boredom of it, I keep playing. Stupid badges preying on my completionism...

Under rating threshold (show) the 88 flak cannon was arguably the best AA artillary every made. it was so effective it was used as an AntiTank gun. you did NOT want to fly into a wall of 88 flak. good chances are you didnt make it out. just a little history for ya

Under rating threshold (show) I agree with Player609, a couple of comments below this. Cursed my ambition for the 60pts badge that makes me play that "bonus" campaigns! (which are a limited version of the long, boring main campaign with a fancy name, like a remasterization of Boredom). I would rather say that Prometheus finds more joy with his eagle affair.

Under rating threshold (show) I love this game, it's so cool, but it gets really laggy when you blow up a couple zeppelins at the same time, and when all of your extra defenses are destroyed on the boss levels, they stream out on each pass enough bombs to destroy you 3 times over....It sucks actually, but to avoid that, get a lot of money! And don't don't have any defenses on the ground in front of you....
