Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / What's best - a tower surrounded by amplifiers, or an amplifier surrounded by towers?

I’ve found that if you’re going to do towers, a hybrid between both styles is very effective. The setup I’m talking about (if you have room for it) involves making a blocky figure 8 out of the amps and plopping a tower in each section, like so:

aaa
aTa
aaa
aTa
aaa

The shared amps still give 90% of their bonuses to each tower, and all gem grades being equal, you double your shot power and speed a lot faster than if you were working with a single tower surrounded by amps. If you have the premium version and have maxed out the Magnify skill, the power put out by an amp shared by 2 towers jumps to 117%, which means that using the above setup, you’ve got far more than double the shot power of a single amplified tower, for significantly less per tower/amp combination. I have yet to try the concept in either an L-shape or a quartered window pane shape, but if somebody wants to, let me know how it goes.

Topic: General Gaming / VIRUS FROM POGO'S RISK

I blame Webroot. I’ve worked at places that use their software and it is so incredibly buggy & more than a little stupid. A lot of flash games try to adjust your memory settings to fit the size of info needed to play the game. If this is coded wrong, I can very well see Webroot having a cow and flagging it. I invested in AVG’s full internet security package and it gives me no problem. Also, it’s pretty near impossible to transmit a virus through Flash, and even more unlikely that Kongregate wouldn’t have caught such a rare occurrence, leaving it for you to do so. Lastly, computer security software is getting too bulky & sophisticated to run more than one at a time. They can interfere with each other’s effectiveness, leaving you worse off than if you ran just one. It really is a horrible idea.

There should be uber-awesome upgrades that you can only get when you own every other upgrade of orc/undead/demon. Ideas for upgrades:
Perfection
Ultimate Towers’ abilities get a 100% bonus (30% becomes 60%).

Master Training
Any tower that kills a champion will get 1000 XP or move up one level.

Cursed Cave
The first enemy each round that enters the cave will suffer 50% of max. health or 1000 dmg.

If you’ll pardon the pun, that’s a BRILLIANT idea. I’m seconding that motion.

That would be the Hunter’s Den. It’s got a faster rate of fire and the chance for crits means a strong chance of finishing it with 2 Meteors.

Topic: General Gaming / Balloon Invasion help?

One thing thunder globes are positively clutch for: replacement towers. If a boss zeppelin wipes out one of your emplacements, the thunder globe is the way to go because it is the ONLY gun that can shoot in a full 180-degree range.

A request: Could somebody PLEASE post a list of all the in-game badges and their requirements? I’m one battle away from beating the game on medium, and there are 3 badges in the bottom row I haven’t even started on. Please help!

Found the recipe list at the bottom of the page on

I’m still not sure if all the gems have to be picked in the same round.

Does anybody know how the “Combine Special” works? I’ve been trying like crazy to figure out when it happens and all I can come up with is what NOT to do – don’t click on anything other than combine special button.
