Bloons TD 4

Hello all,

I'm not really new here (although my posts would tell differently).. I've been referring to this site since the beginnings of it. Now - on subject.

I've really been enjoying Bloons TD 4, but I'm really having a hell of a time where I'm at. I've gotten 9 gold medals on the first 9 maps, and I cannot seem to get past level 40-50 ish on the first 3 advanced maps. I've even attempted them on easy, and still no luck. I feel like I've tried just about every type of strategy, but I still get nowhere.

Any thoughts? comments? frustrations? Anyone with the same problem? It'd be great to get some advice. Thanks for reading!

You still there? I'm just getting going with this game, but I can help you with River Bed on Hard if you'd like. The other maps then become much easier when you unlock the 10 gold medal upgrades.

Edit:
OK this will get you the Gold on hard. I'm sure it can be tweaked to avoid leaking any bloons.

I've got 14 golds but cant seem to beat the last 2 expert maps with gold. The basic strategy I use (make sure you enable all upgrades that you can):

- make basic monkeys and keep saving until you can buy a cannon
- don't upgrade any basic monkeys ever
- once you have 1 cannon, save up for 2 more (don't upgrade any yet).
- when you have 3, I usually build a monkey ace or the pirate ship one (depending on the map layout)
- after that, start upgrading everyone except basic monkeys.
- eventually start saving up for super, and then upgrade until it has plasma.
- buy a monkey beacon
- by now the game should be really easy. Just buy some fully upgraded cannons and let them take out blimps. Also set the cannons target priority to "Strong".

Some notes: the pirate ship monkey is an AMAZING value when fully upgraded!! Be sure to use it if possible.
- for the map that looks like a "star" shape, I bought TONS of monkey aces and upgrade them fully. Also put a few cannons for the blimps. I'm on my phone, so I can type up more stuff when I get on my laptop I'd you need it.

If anyone has tips on the last 2 expert ones, I'm all ears

Rail Track, Ant Hill

Ok, just completed everything with 16 golds. Ant Hill is easy once you get gold on Rail Track and unlock the other upgrades. I may go back and try Ant Hill without the last upgrades.

For Rail Track (without 15 gold upgrades):
Concentrate all your firepower at the main merge. Place glue monkeys in all the gaps up top. I started with 5 dart monkeys and 3 glue gunners. I then added 4 cannons and the other 2 glue gunners. Fully upgraded tack shooter at merge next. Keep adding cannons at the merge. Upgrade all cannons and target to strong. Place a tornado wizard at the end.

I used a monkey storm at levels 66 and 71.

Good luck!

I played through again quickly and took some screenshots. This will get you through on Hard. Look at the previous post for shot of how it ends up after round 53. Target everything to "strong".

I used a bunch of buccaneers since with the fireball upgrade they can pop lead balloons
