- If you don't have access to Polymorph tower use Glue tower instead.

explosive,

I, too, have found wave 31 for Curious Gorge to be impossible to win without special item or airstrike. In fact, I think there is a bug in the hit points of the enemies in this wave. Compared to the previous waves and the same enemy types, the hit points was dramatically higher and completely outgun any tower you can have.

So far, I am beginning to think that this level is unwinnable using ONLY the default available towers (that is, no special high-power towers that you get by backtracking to play harder levels first to open up these extra weapons). I seem to recall that the developer has mentioned that the level is beatable with only basic weapon types.

Is this a bug?

Guide Part 2

Cardio Canyon Continued

Heroic




4. Curious Gorge - Tip: Save Airstrike for Round 31

Casual



Heroic




New Version:


5. Turbo Dryer (Heroic)





This can be done without items but I recommend having 2 mines just to be safe. The 3 key moments are using a mine on that single hovercraft, then again when the 2 tanks are together. When the 5 strong tanks come use your airstrike and you should complete it just in time.

Lavaflow

1. The Frying Pan

Casual (Toastmasters make Flamethrower/Pyro a bad choice)




Heroic



2. Ring of Fire (Heroic)




3. High Steaks (Heroic)



4. Scrambled Eggs (Heroic)



5. End of Doom (Heroic)





Hometown

1. Last Limbo - Final Waves



2. Be Mine

Not my videos but youtube link for solving these. - http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIuT3K67FC04wnG8vVZCxJQ

3. Mean Streets (Heroic)






Basically same strat as before only this time without upgrading the gatlings, get the 3 sparks down and continue the rest of the gatlings behind. Start upgrading the spark towers then get the next line of gatlings before putting more sparks down then simply wait till around 750 killed then call airstrike to finish up.

4. Hocus Poke Us (Heroic)

#1: Plant towers as followed with ones on left and right first.



#2: Keep planting and upgrading gatlings when the boxes disappear to end up like this.



#3 At round 18/19 you should sell one of the gatlings and get the flamethrower, the remaining waves is just upgrading the flamethrower and gatlings and placing more towers once more gaps open up.



5. Carnie Guarding (Heroic)




You want to plant #1 right on them to kill them first round(first screen) then next upgrade #2 both times. Plant the next 3 towers and upgrade them, once you have $60 place 6 & 7, and then after that 8 & 9 and finish by placing towers in remaining spots. (Credit to Spock for this strat)

Cards FAQ

Tips on how to complete the following cards/find specific units:

Itemized(Kill 10 units with 1 Item) - Clonehenge, use a mine on a big group.

Efficiency is Key(Defeat 10 rounds in a mission with no towers) - End of doom, enemies die from running in lava which means you only need a couple items for the last few waves.

Mr Money Bags - See screens page 16.

Minute Man(Complete a mission in one minute) - Clonehenge, place gatlings and spark at front until you reach the kills then sell the towers and let them through.

Heavy Transports - Frying Pan

Hazmats - Mean Streets

Bad Day Blimps - Curious Gorge/Dryer Straights final waves.

Heroic Tangled Express

Easy stage once you obtain the Shock tower. I leaked 3 Super troopers at a sliver of HP because I saved up $150 and was too lazy to drop another tower. The Plasma tower was unneeded as well. A laser tower was probably better suited. Can perfect this easily once I revisit this stage.

Heroic Curious Gorge
Lieutenant Sakai appears on this map and comes from the top left spawn. I did not kill him with this setup

This is a maze where Ice towers shine. My placement basically perma-slowed any units in the maze (something Oil can't do) and allowed my Shock/Pyro towers to do work. Make the Tesla towers at the top and bottom first to deal with the Helicopters. The two Teslas on the left part of my maze were created at the last wave to deal with the Blimp since I had $300+ saved up. The Ice tower on the bottom right is needed to slow the Helicopters around wave 40 I believe. Had another shock tower above the bottom one, but resold it for a Pyro. If the zerg waves leak, make more Shock/Pyro/Ice. If something big leaks make Teslas. I leaked the first couple of air waves and had no trouble after that. Never used the flamethrower so I might swap that out once I revisit this. Save air strike for round 31. The runners that wave are on god mode or something

Initial Heroic The Frying Pan

First try of this map and first time use of Mine tower. This map is all about your maze. The red spaces on the map also deal some damage to the runners. Since the entrance and exit are so close you don't have to worry about air units. I sent the runners to the left and made a U-turn path of Shock/Ice. Tesla tower near the end to deal with the tanks that get through. I leaked 2 early on cause I was mazing instead of upgrading. Can perfect this easily on a second try

Revisited Heroic Cardio Canyon

Quite a hard map even with Shock and Ice towers. Most of my leaks were from Helicopters so if I tried this again I'd focus more on Teslas instead of mazing or a couple of shock towers.

Can you show the layout you used to win this level on casual with DEFAULT towers (with NO replanting, of course) and NO lost of lives and no use of special items or airstrike? With airstrike, yes, it is doable, but I want to play a truly "perfect" game without using these powers which, according to the developer, is supposed to be doable.

The level is doable on casual with default towers(although very difficult) but tough/heroic on most maps without ice/spark is near impossible.

I'm pretty sure it is a bug. I remember having to call an Air Strike cause the Super troopers were barely damaged after halfway through my maze. The next time the Supertroopers came, they were decimated before they even began the second stretch. I didn't upgrade anything in between the waves except bottom and top Teslas to deal with the Helicopters.

Which stages are you looking for? And can you say what the default towers are? I forgot when Hive, Oil, Laser, Plasma, and Tesla were acquired.

This is the best I could do with the earlier towers, had no choice but to use airstrike.




After trying that level a few more times it looks like your right about them being bugged round 31, I will send a pm to the dev guys.

Thanks so much for the confirmation. I am relieved that you find it to be impossible without airstrike. If this turns out to be true, that I am just mad that I wasted all these times solving a level that cannot be solved.

All those levels on casual with default towers only (tried to make the later screenshots with the little arrows marking the track visible—btw this works in pause mode).

Speedhenge:



Bizarre Bazar (description here):



Curious Gorge:



Dryer Straights:



Cardio Canyon:



The Frying Pan with heavy tower replacing (described here), I lost the hearts in round 50 or so and lived with the three remaining hearts for the rest of the game (this level has no enemy air traffic):



Ring of Fire (okay two non-standard towers if I remember correctly, it was easy, saved all hearts):
