Click on the achievements button, there is a list of various achievements (and rewards they give), also simply by doing all 12 stages, all 8 bonus stages, and all 5 trials you will get 29. 30 is a mystery until Rudy chimes in.

Yeah, but I don’t know about you but I don’t have that kind of time to wait for the Iron Fortress to move from one side of the screen to the other, even at Speed x 3 its sloooooooooooooooooooow.

Hopefully the “missing unit” isn’t due to some random clicking (I recall in one EW you had to click the credits to get one unit… dwarves if memory serves), or having to finish the game with each character…. or worse having to buy KREDS to unlock it.

Originally posted by Manahimik:

Premium only locks out giants, endurance and shadow mode. Others are just modifiers that affect numbers, not gameplay.

I still don’t regret doing the surveys for the premium content do.o

Excuse me if I’m wrong, Premium also locks out the ability to get all of the in game achievements (amulets) done as well, not sure how you can do 100 waves (6 achievements) when the max additional waves you can add is 15.

As to the survey bit, spend 10 minutes clicking dots, only to have “oh we’re so sorry we don’t find any survey’s that fit you”

The Trio Monolith battle in the 60 medal area.

They’re all level 40-50, and all three different types are there. Can’t defend against all three of their elements and they all blast you in the same turn.

My advice, grind… obviously you finished the game if you’re in that area, hopefully you clicked the “allow for levels beyond 30” button. Its an insane amount of experience for each level after 30, however you also get an insane boost to stats/hp/mp with a single level. And while you can’t be 100% immune to their effects you can get enough resistance that you can survive a few blasts by them, then some tasty pizza or ultra heal spell, and you’re set for another few turns before they fire again, in between throw everything you have at one. The viking helmet might be useful, while berserk sucks for controlling guys obviously they hit for a ton when they do, make sure a “favorable” weapon is equipped and it wouldn’t surprise me if you took out a monolith within a couple turns.

I wasn’t a big fan of the 3 headed dragon/hydra at Epic level, too many different attack types are used against you, booberella was basically doing nothing but healing the entire fight, and I think I got lucky.

However the most unfair battles are any where a second wave comes and your last guy just beat the last one on the previous wave so they get a free round of attacking you, doubly suck is one battle where 5 of those suicidal firebombs come at you boom boom boom boom boom…

That said, I was disappointed there was no super-uber-secret boss behind Death, only level 50 regular creatures

>>So a single whole-team attack that deals over 10000 damage ISN’T overpowered in your opinion, then?

Only if you have the wrong equipment.

Topic: General Gaming / Epic War 4

Black Goblin is vulnerable to “non-elemental” attacks, so that’s the sky dragon, angel, and meteor spells, however that level on Epic don’t expect your titans to get anywhere close to the black goblin as its literally raining goblins all over the level so they attack everything in sight rather than go straight ahead. My strategy is just to find units that move forward when the attack, Lord of Flames, WereTigers, etc and simply go for the castle and toss on a shield as soon as I see a black goblin, there’s a good chance the goblin will try to attack then run right by you allowing you to attack the castle.

Big Bang is easy, simply throw everything you have at it, then toss up a shield right before it blows, this level is really a grinders paradise as on epic they just keep coming and that’s more money for you.

Baal is a royal PITA, you can do it too ways, first is to shield someone to get close enough then they can attack Baal without the sword being able to hit you, however an easier way is to use Pixies and Sylphs, the Sylphs do more damage than titans to Baal, and they can fire out of range (they’ll get hit if he attacks, but they’re far enough back that he doesn’t attack), the Pixies are the healers that you’ll need to keep them alive.

Angel, arrows work, non-element might work but not very well, using stop helps, as you can force your guys right past him, just wait until your magic is maxed as you’ll need to cast it a couple times. On Hard level instead of an angel there’s an uber Lord of Flames… just attack the poop out of it with shielded guys, etc Sylphs again do a lot of damage, the Epic level there’s an Uber Snowman!!!! And his range is so large that he can literally hit your castle from half the battlefield away, I beat him by rushing the castle initially, and it seems there’s a dead zone just like Baal really close to him. Just have Pixies with you to keep healing your guys as they get occasionally hit.

Oh and to get the green lined items simply level up your hero a couple times.

Topic: General Gaming / Elona shooter discussion and strategy

Not sure if the maker of the game reads this thread or the comments (but being as that is highly chaotic I’ll post here)

A couple mods that would be neat to add as options

1: Shop mod: Makes it so only one of each item is available in each shop slot, that’s to say you won’t see 3 grenades for sale regardless of level, however you might see a pistol, machine pistol or laser pistol. Nothing irritates me more to see 6 repair hammers for sale when I’m looking for one particular type of weapon… day after day!

2: Sandbox mod: Simply put infinite AP, infinite money, no badges/medals can be earned, or anything, as it can allow you to simply mess around with the various weapons and try things out as you want testing them so you don’t sell your machine pistol because the wind bow sounds like a cool weapon but you find out it’s useless!

Kind of an aside, is there any way to stretch the game screen out, its painfully small as it is and the only way I can play the game is if I dump to 800×600 resolution.

Wow, I played back when it was 1-N as well… guess my computer sucks at rolling dice, as I’d get 1 to 3 at most.

Topic: General Gaming / Hexcelle Combos! (Screenshots)

Bombs need to be a bit more powerful in this game for my liking, as it stands I only use them for shields against incoming fire.

Also, I don’t know if it’s me getting more food the later (farther) in the game I go, but it seems that the more cells you have the more food is required to evolve? So if you get blasted to poop it won’t take much to evolve? (I hope this is the case).

Finally Scientia, how the heck do get a 137 cell creature with only 19 evolves? That’s over 7 spawns per level on average, and that’s assuming you haven’t lost any.

Topic: General Gaming / Epic War 3 Walkthrough (Complete! Final Castle, CoT1, CoT4, CoT5) & Discussion

Finally beat CoT5! Succubus, Witch, Centaur for long range, Knight, Ghost Armor as Tanks, Lord of Shadows because… well because every other way I tried I failed at it! Comet, Phoenix, Strength and Protection were my skills.. when EVERYONE was summoned, I made my move… launched a phoenix (because there is NO way to get them to stay where I want them to get ready for a charge, so might as well bring that little Uber SoB to me!). When he got close I simply scrolled to the right part of the screen, 2,space, 3,space,4,space,5,space,6,space,7,space over and over again.(really you need global hot keys or a “flag” system where all new summons go there).

Seems like I got just lucky enough such that the Lord of shadows attacks combined with my long range ones knocked him back over and over, and slowly my entire stack moved forward… I didn’t once hear cling but due to the explosions from the suicide bombers because it seems troops that get blown up don’t go where they were fricking supposed to, so 2,space,3,space,etc (see comment about a “flag”). when they got close enough to the castle to damage it, and it looked like a rush was coming, I fired off another phoenix, then used protection and strength and watched the castle crumble in no time.

Anti-climatic though for beating it.. But I did get Berserk.

Here’s the question do you get anything for beating Cave of Trials 5? I don’t have the mermaid, and I really don’t want to play through an entire game trying to get it. That little bastard of a goblin slips past my units!!!!

I mean who the hell brought a Tonberry into the damn game!

Topic: General Gaming / Minions

I think all the minions should get the *If you know how to play them AND other members play their minions correctly.

Way too many times have I seen doc units “play tank” with the thought of . o O ( oooh I have healing I’ll be fine).

My two favorites are Doc & Splodge, if you have a good number of tanks (or people thinking they are) Doc is great, upgrade his speed first and he can out run anything and you stay alive longer! Also seems that you slowly gain armor points? Granted it’s only a few percent. If others choose doc and your team is low on tanks then I have to pick Splodge, his shield makes him such a kick butt minion, I just finished playing with one guy who was quite devastating as Shouty, but when I got a few levels of shield I took him out in short order time and again. You can just about go toe to toe with anything except a Basher if you have a high enough shield.

Topic: General Gaming / Epic War 2 thread

Dragon bonus comes way to late in the game, I already had the Angel unit so the Dragon was more than useless. The Flame Demon while nice, is basically the evil form of the Angel, nice and neat however getting it after you finish the game implies that I want to replay it, which honestly I dont.

(#1) Hobbit – Read credits & instructions
(#2) Dwarf – Load a game three times
(#3) Cannon Fodder – Lose 3 times
(#4) ??
(#5) ??
(#6) Angel – Upgrade “all” races to the max.

Some things I don’t like, is the horde rush when the castle gets low, I mean there were a couple levels where I lost the whole match because of that horde, especially on earlier levels when you don’t have the tier 3 fighters while they do, because they can chop through your tier 1/2 troops like newspaper.

Remove the delay for getting troops, the mana requirements alone should be enough to keep things balanced. Titans require 9999 mana, Angels require 5200 mana, it takes a little bit of time to build that up, so why have a clock? I can undestand maybe on Titan, but other troops, no way. If I want to spam hobbits I should be able to just click like crazy. Besides it doesn’t seem like the computer follows by those rules, so why do I get crippled.

Oh and do NOT remove the auto-fire “bug”, it’s needed.

Am I the only one who had level 40 creatures with level 1 stats when you continue after beating the game?

Topic: General Gaming / Brute Wars 2 ... bugs?

Just curious if these are supposed to be in the game or not.

First, seems there’s a level cap of 40 for everyone who’s fighting, yet those in my reserves keep leveling up. Other creatures (especially near the end) are above 40 as well.

Second, starting a new game after finishing (load) all my creatures are level 40… however they have the stats as if they’re level 1, meaning they’re severely crippled for the whole game.
