This is a nice update, isn't it? The levels are much harder, which is a welcome change!

With the higher levels, it really matters the order in which you upgrade your guns.

I can't remember exactly what I did to get a good start, but you can follow the attached picture:
  1. Upgrade the gun closest to the bed to max power.
  2. Upgrade the gun next to the glue to 2nd highest power.
  3. Upgrade the glue to 2nd highest power.
  4. Next, gain money to get a boomerang
    [#4 is incorrectly labeled. The first boomerang unit I placed
    was the one just to the left of the mislabeled one].
  5. Concentrate on upgrading the boomerang to the maximum power.
While you're trying to upgrade the boomerang, try to shoot rocks that are nearby the biggest gun in order to get more cash. Also, you can target objects that are in the center of multiple guns, like perhaps the tree in the middle. Try to never let the guns be "waiting around" and always try to destroy objects after the current wave is ending or at the delay before the next wave. Sometimes, you can target an object with an "early" gun on the path and let the "later guns" deal with the enemies.

Also, you must always target the fastest enemy that moves to the front of the line.

To deal with bosses, use the oil slick first to slow them down. Then, use the tornado to bring them back to the beginning. It is very helpful to power-up the glue to the highest power early on so that it can slow down many enemies and especially hamper the bosses.

Try to have multiple highly upgraded boomerang units because they deal with tightly-formed groups of waves very effectively.

These guidelines should help you win, so you can finally shout out from your closed bathroom door, "No one can stop me now, bitches!"

thanks... will give it a go. I figured it was a matter of what guns to upgrade, I just haven't gotten the order down yet.

And yes, the closed bathroom door is SOOO true...

I love this game, however it is very easy. In the Tornado Alley map all you need to do is upgrade the gun by the glue first. Then shoot the big rock closest to it in between groups. Once the gun is at full upgrade build a flashlight directly next to it on the right and destroy rocks and trees to upgrade the flashlight fully. Then upgrade the glue to full. Then only build flashlights upgrading them 1 at a time to full. You can beat this level easily without ever having the bed touched. You will need to as stated manually target the fastest creeps first thought. Flashlights will burn down the bosses with only the help of the upgraded glue, you wont even need to use the oil or tornado tower if placed right. Flashlights for the win. Once I figured out the power of the flashlight I never use anything else, kinda makes the game too easy.

Tornado Alley is ridiculously hard. I've tried all the tips here and nothing works. This is ridiculous and has ruined the fun of the game for me.
