Topic: Kongregate / Your Pants Presents: Badge of the Week! (Week of 8/24: Neon Race)

Closure was alright. I think the developer didn’t developer the atmosphere as well as they could have; a few levels had some story-ish aspects but not much outside of that. Also, the character moved too slow for how nit-picky/trial-and-error some levels were.

Topic: Kongregate / Summer '15 suggestion thread

More K+ profile skins for sure. If I remember, all of the good ones were made by users of the site. Why not ask for people to make more and implement the best one?

EDIT: There were honorable mentions when the original contest was run… http://www.kongregate.com/forums/1-kongregate/topics/230986-contest-k-profile-skins-winners-announced?page=11#posts-5055866

Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / Final Stage (G7) - Easy Win Strategy (Level 75+)

This is a very simple strategy to beat the last stage in the Labyrinth. Pictures showing the allocation of my skill points and beginning stage are below.



I was level 82 when I finished the game (with premium and a few apparitions defeated). Overall, the amount of skill points allocated is inline with a player who is level 75.


All gems are dual Lime-Yellow. All tower gems should be set to only fire at structures (except the north-east tower).

At the beginning of the stage extend your mana pool twice and sell your wild gem. You should be able to create a setup identical to the one shown above. When you have enough mana, buy another grade 4 dual Lime-Yellow gem and put it in the south-west tower.

I upgraded the north-east gem once, then upgraded the lone tower gems once each (once I had enough mana). I was able to charge all four pylons at around wave 42. Very few monsters made it through this setup and they did not pose a major threat.

Probably Ultimate Assassin 3 and Rogue Soul 2. The former was challenging and the latter was fun :)

Bear in Super Action Adventure to the queue.

I think an E/M would work well for this game because it’s so simple. The only visible API stat is for enemies killed, which could make for the easy badge, say 500 enemies. A medium for completion. I don’t think there needs to be a badge for collecting all stars because I collected almost all of them just making my way to the end of the game (without seeking them out).

Possibly another easy badge for defeating the toaster on level 10 (it’s an in game achievement). Of course, this is easiest to do after getting all upgrades.

Someone suggested Cube Escape: The Lake. Its rating is 3.65 but it’s a solid game and I think a medium for completion would be good.

Lol guys, ever computer has a browser built in that isn’t chrome. Personally I detest Safari, but you know what? I use it to play Transmission every now and again as I work towards its badges. Is it a little bit inconvenient? Sure. Do I mind? No, because badges are like crack.

It should award retroactively. I had to reload the game a second time for my badge to be awarded.

I really like the wide feature roll and the trending pod! Although I’m a bit bothered by the Hot New Games section featuring lackluster (rating <3.75) MMO’s :P

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

I think the problem with the medals stat is that, for me at least, the API only submitted once I beat the final level. Also, because the stat is unintuitive it would have a rather wonky progress bar thing-y

Maybe “coins earned” would make for a better badge because stars can be achieved on any difficulty setting. Now only if that stat was working correctly :P

Medium: Some medals (20? 25?)

Aren’t there only 12 medals? Or I’m just stupid X:
EDIT: Only when I beat the final level did the “Medal Completion” stat submit for me.

Topic: Sonny 2 / [Sonny 2] In-Depth Psychological Legend Guide with Zones 6 and 7

For the Android Guard, Riot Police x2 battle in Zone 5, I found it much more manageable to focus my Traumatize attacks on one of the Riot Police (instead of on the Android Guard, like the guide says). The guard wastes a lot of turns by shielding himself (which doesn’t make a difference in how fast you kill the two Riot Police). Even though the guard was able to shield the Riot Police a few times during my fight, I found that Shock Therapy could break through it often.


EDIT: You just won the OVER THE ASHES BADGE!! Thanks for the guide!

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

I find the Plus levels to be much harder than the others. For Links and Squared, it’s always easy to start filling in tiles at the beginning of a puzzle but when I do the Plus 50X50s it take a good chunk of time to find a place to start! It’s no doubt one of the longest hard badges on the site, but eh, I think it would be overkill to split it apart.


I’m just glad we’re getting more badges :P
