geoDefense - Perfect Levels

*SPOILER ALERT* - DON'T READ THIS UNTIL YOU'VE TOTALLY GIVEN UP or you're just plain bored - These walk-through's will show you how to make it through each level without losing any lives.

(I had only recently finished all the levels and while I was stuck on the hard levels, I would go back and re-run each of the original easy and medium levels until I got them down without losing any lives)

A MAJOR help this time around was realizing that Level 3 Lasers (after upgrading twice to the double beam) can be locked into position with a double-tap -- (wait till they rotate into a long stretch and lock them in)

I've just finished doing 2 Hard Levels "perfectly" and will probably redo all the Easy and Medium ones first (and get screen caps and write walk-through's) before trying to perfect the hard levels (if that's even possible on all of them If anyone wants to add to this, just post below. I'll try to edit the post and keep the info up near the top of the post

(If you don't know how to do a screen cap, hold the "HOME" button while clicking on the "Power/Sleep" button on top)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

geoDefense - Hard Level 2 - Angular View (4 Phases)

1-a) Fill out Upper Triangle with 5 rockets, 1 shock
1-b) Place 2 Lasers & Vortex - Link lasers to Vortex (Left laser can point straight down the path below)
1-c) Upgrade everything to Lvl 2 - Shock, Lasers x2, Rockets x5
(Do not upgrade Vortex at all - and do not start on Lvl 3 until everything is up to Lvl 2)
1-d) Upgrade everything to Lvl 3 and repeat each round of upgrades until everything is Lvl 6 (not 7)
Upgrade only the 2 Lasers to Lvl 7 (Max)

2-a) Place 4 Rockets to the right and outside of upper triangle
2-b) Simultaneously upgrade them (as above) to Lvl 6

3-a) Place 4 Rockets to the right and outside of Lower triangle
3-b) Simultaneously upgrade them (as above) to Lvl 6

4-a) Fill in lower triangle with Shock & 2 Rockets, then the 4 Rockets to the left of the lower triangle:
4-b) Start upgrading the entire set all together towards Lvl 6 ...

If you do it all efficiently, the level will finish around Lvl 4 upgrades.

geoDefense - Hard Level 4 - Fall in Line

Another simple one, but this method is terribly boring. I tried so many other different variations along the way that were much more interesting

Start with the bottom row (squares 6,9,12), then the top row (spaced in between the ones below).
Then start upgrading in that sequence. If you're off a little on the positioning, you'll end up losing only one life.

Credit to wiesse for this particular method.

geoDefense - Hard Level 6 - X Factor

The pic says it all, very simple when you look at it.

Start in the bottom quadrant and place one Laser, upgrade to level 2.
Then rotate Counter-Clockwise and repeat, always adding in 1 Laser and upgrading to Lvl 2. By the time you've put in the 32nd Laser, the round is over.

Credit to derdude74 for the original idea.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

geoDefense - Medium Level 1 - Speed Round

(Tower #'s are listed by order of the path)
1) Place 6 Laser Towers, then upgrade all to lvl 3
2) Start locking (position of) the first 3 lasers as the opportunity comes up (see locking lasers above)
3) Upgrade all Lasers to lvl 4
4) Place 5 shock towers - You should be able to get some in during Round 9 and have them slow down the wave
5) Especially before Round 10 (Stars), make sure you get at least the first 2 Shock towers positioned (near the entrance) to slow down this fast wave.
6) Upgrade the 5 shock towers to Lvl 3 as soon as possible. You should have a little bit of cash to upgrade another couple shock towers until the level ends.

Notes:
A) Keep in mind that Lasers #5 & 6 also help as they come in so I may upgrade the Lasers in this order: 1,2,5,6,3,4
B) Also, don't start an upgrade while they have an active target to Shock or Shoot at -- Or upgrade ahead of a wave if you can time it right.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

geoDefense - Medium Level 2 - Gordy

This one's a little sloppy (I'll replay the level nice and pretty later) but start off with one batch of green towers and a Vortex (all linked, no upgrades). Then put in the second batch of green towers and Vortex, then 5 rockets (top row), upgraded to Level 6... (I'll finish when I have time to play it again

Nice although I feel like even if I follow these walkthroughs exactly I'll still lose a couple lives...or all of them
btw aren't there 32 lasers in the second pic

I tried each one twice so I know it works ... and yeah, 8*3=24, but 8*4=32
apparently I can't count to 4 :P

I still can't beat Hard level 1, The Eye I think it's called. I tried whole a whole damn day thinking up a strategy, learning from my mistake but no matter I always fail at the last creep.

Hey all, I'm new here... signed up to get some help on geodefense

Does anyone have a build for hard level 5? This one is kicking my butt everytime for some reason. Thanks!

This is definitely possible. I did this
Medium levels were a little harder than hard ones... from perfection point of view.

Sorry about that. I ended up beating it, now I'm on the last hard level. I'll give a day or so before I go looking for solutions.

Thanks for the reply though!
