Hey people, can someone please post a guide to Reactor - Stripes? This level has been killing me for months now. I tried the solution mentioned earlier in the thread but i can't seem to make it work for me...

Hulkling - I think we're a little late to the party. Doesn't seem like anyone's been discussing Swarm for a while now. I can't do stripes either. I've also decided I think Crazy Ivan is not possible on the iPhone 4. I found a video online showing someone w/ an iPhone 3G getting through it without losing a life. I've tried his strategy (exactly the way he's played it - I played along w/ the video) and it doesn't work on the iPhone 4. I know this sort of thing has happened w/ Critical Thought's games before (it used to be that Geodefense's Sneaky Snake was not beatable on the iPhone 4, but was easy to beat on an older model phone).

If anyone knows how to beat Crazy Ivan on an iPhone 4 please let me know!

You can defeat triple u without losing any lives simple by using all laser towers for your path and then upgrading the towers near the end.

Good grief! Thanks!

I've been insanely repeating the same set-up over and over again. Thanks for the solution.

Hey, would it be possible for you to post a level by level sort of thing in pictures? I am stuck and cannot beat this level, even trying to implement your strategy.

No activity!

Hey, guys, while i just joined recently, just reading your posts helped me through a bunch of rough patches, but what happened? It just kind of died one day! I enjoyed it and since having to fully restore my phone it deleted all my old progress and need to play these levels again. So to make a long story short, I'm gonna need help from you guys!

Hey Guys,

thx for the help on some levels that made me cry for a couple times :-)
Now I'm stuck on Stripes and i don't know what else to do. Would be nice if someone could share his strategy

Personally I don't think it's even possible to make it. I read somewhere (prolly in this topic actually) that it was possible with iphone3 and the ios versions present then - but not anymore. Although that was probably just another personal opinion just like mine...

Too bad this isn't being developed anymore, I would have loved to get some new neverending levels

STRIPES!! Solution!

No picture as i did the level ages ago(just did it again and took a screen shot will upload if anyone needs it)

Its pretty easy once u know how to do it.

Creeps need two paths,

1. Down the 2nd column and one down the 6th
2. Don't use any laser towers just the green ones to make the path and the rocket towers
3. You need to keep buying and selling a green tower so you channel the creeps down one column then they need to backtrack to the other column

Guys, seriously, I know I'm very late to the party, but how on earth do you beat medium level Home Base on hardcore? I've seen some strategies but they're all from 2009 and I'm thinking he must have tweaked the difficulty since then because none of them can get me past wave 34.

Any recent strategies or advice?

Many thanks!
