The ice towers don't seem effective and the last few waves tend to scale up very tough to beat despite with a bunch of level 6 towers...
I beat the first set of 10 levels with level 3 towers, plus a few levels in the the +pow, rage and speed robe. Its expensive but worth it. For the other item, I have both the +pow/freeze/range and the +pow/crit/speed -- they are good on different maps, but of course picking one and sticking with it is an option. For spells, the +75% health reduction -- whatever it actually does, wasnt really helping too much even though I did level it once too 85%. Lightning didnt seem too useful either, but I only leveled it once. The +tower damage is good, I'm a believer in that one -- and of course, you need the health spell as well. I used my free jelly on 10 skill points.
I'm only on the 4th level in the second set of waves, so cant say too much more. One thing I have noticed is that the new continuous lightning tower seems to moot/replace the rapid shoot and AOE stomper tower. Maybe not the stomper, but definitely the rapider, which doesnt seem to do enough damage (although it is cheap). The straight shooting laser is still good.
