I Need Help With 7 Cities!

I'm a big TD fan, but 7 Cities has me stumped...i cant get past the 2nd level!

I'm very frustrated, because no matter what i do, i die. How many levels are on this map?

The Best i've done - Score - 15,610

From the dev:
"In Campaign mode, you have to survive:
Map 1 - 15 waves
Map 2 - 20 waves
Map 3 - 20 waves
Map 4 - 25 waves
Map 5 - 25 waves
Map 6 - 30 waves
Map 7 - 40 waves

The difficulty does not affect number of waves, but it does affect the enemy strength, tower selling, and the score."

What are you using in level 2? I gave me arrows critical and my cannons Berserk

I've played the forth map four times... No go yet. I'm playing in Normal mode.

@ McGill: don't forget to manage your "skill unlocker".

In level two, what i did was build towers in the top region of the map. Build near the area where the ships come from, and in the corners where they loop around. In the island on the right side, i built towers in there and i put canons on the bottom corner of the top area so when they do the 2nd loop, your canons and arrows can reach them

To upgrade existing towers to critical hit on a tower, for example, it needs a yellow gem. Where do i get these, or how do i earn them?

On the island to your right put three arrows.

On the three points slighty to the left put cannons. The cannons have a huge range and keeping them on those corners gives them several chances at attacking.

That group of 6 can take out wave 1 wave 2 and 90% of wave 3 without a single upgrade! They will raise in level VERY quickly and then you should focus on upgrading the cannon on the bottom corner because it gets 3 chances at attacking while building more towers to help out

You get a yellow gem every five levels.

you will see a gem floating above the tower. Make sure you have the ability unlocked in the skill unlocker.

each ability can be upgraded twice with the yellow gems

Just tap on a tower and you should see it's current exp level. Once a tower reaches lvl 5 you will see a little yellow jewel floating above it. Then you can tap on the tower to select it, tap the picture of the icon, then double tap the ability you want to give that tower.

Have you gone through the Tutorial? All your questions are answered there.

I suggest starting with 2 Arrow towers and 2 Cannon Towers. Update one of each first. Then add more Arrow and Cannon every time you get enough money. Get a Tornado Generator to help you out as well. You can always go to the Skill Unlocker and respec the skill tree to unlock the Tornado Generator.
