Under rating threshold (show) A few general tips: It is always more efficient to upgrade an existing weapon than to build a new one. So always build one, max it, build the next, max that, etc. Plasmas are the only weapons you need after level 1 until you finish level 9 (10+ you need to use Phantomsleds strategy). Just make sure you set all guns after the first two to Random so you don't waste lots of shots on already dead enemies. Weapons unlock as you complete levels. You don't have to "do" anything to get them but keep winning levels.

Under rating threshold (show) Not bad, needs some balancing though. Could also use some in-game mouse-over details on things, it would be nice to know what each weapon and upgrade does. I still have no idea what unlocks the weapons. One minute 3 of the 4 were locked, the next they were all unlocked. Not sure exactly what I did to unlock them. Just could use some more transparency. Nice design and has potential. 3/5

Under rating threshold (show) OH.... and you should switch all of your turrets to "random priority" so they don't alll shoot at the same thing ;) just use your heads people! :-p

Under rating threshold (show) Its a great game, I am currently on 15, I love it so far. what I do is us only two types of turrets, the cheapest ones, and two plasma turrets for their range abilities. I did mess around with all the weapons, I think the catapults are cool if used with the barricades, you can sort of funnel the baddies into the bouncing crates.... Although I am not using the more expensive turrets because they are just not cost effective. As of right now, just the 100 dollar turrets and expanding the base for more 100 dollar turrets with 2 plasma turrets... Also I use the explosive (blue) crates whenever there are allot of baddies at once.. THE ENERGY pools allows your base to have more health, but I think you need "health" so your base can recharge// does anyone know what recycling does???? Thanks! -Jack

Under rating threshold (show) A fun little defender. I would however love a basic explanation of what exactly "recycle" does, or many of the other functions you see, but have no clear idea what'll do. Also an explanation for how one unlocks the catapults, what criteria there is for doing so. Otherwise a jolly romp.

Under rating threshold (show) Don't play this game unless you have a few hours to kill and complete the campaign. No way to save and no auto-save. I got halfway through it and had to shut down for a while. I came back and have to start from the very beginning.

Under rating threshold (show) Game gets ridiculously hard at about level 3. I beat it once and I have no idea how, just got lucky or something, because I can't seem to do it again no matter how I mix turrets or base upgrades now. Difficulty curve is way too steep, which is a shame because I really really WANT to like this.

Under rating threshold (show) I have to admit that I was interested in the game, 'til I got about three levels in. Some of the turrets are completely worthless (Plasma, for starters), most of the robots move way too fast, and the game doesn't really give me any incentive to keep playing. If this game had a level system, I would be far more interested to grind my way to the end of the game, but as it stands, it's just a 'hope you pick the right turrets and make the right decisions because if you don't you're boned' kind of game. Not to say that those aren't bad games, but the games that do that the best are considerably more flexible. Put a bit more thought into the execution of this game and it could be one of the better unique TD games on Kongregate.

Under rating threshold (show) good td, not the best graphics but not the worst either, and all around good job, though the tutorial could have explained what the catapult does and how to use it. 4/5

Under rating threshold (show) dammit. 2 enemies standing ONE space outside weapon range and shooting range...had to sell a turret and re-build it farther forward! (couldn't afford to build a completely new one)

Under rating threshold (show) As many have noted, this game could really use some level-up system for the campaign as well as some balance between tower cost and usefulness.

Under rating threshold (show) it was fun at first but now im stuck on level 5, nothing lasts between games so i cant just grind the lower levels until im ready. i dont know what half the base upgrades do and ive run out of patience, still 4/5 for keeping me entertained for 30 minutes

Under rating threshold (show) It deleted my saved game on refresh. Also, you should be able to make turrets target droids that aren't moving/destroying barricades. Things seem way to expensive too. And I'd rather have base upgrades be permanent, but cost a bit more (as I said, things are already expensive).

Under rating threshold (show) Lots of bugs in the tutorial, after I didn't manage to put stuff on the green tiles for the first time, the game didn't allow me to do it at all. I just dragged the tower with the cursor and couldn't place it anywhere or get rid of it anyhow
