Expert

I was able to beat expert 2-2 and 2-3 before getting to level 16. I am now level 15, having trouble beating 2-5 and 2-7, Ive pretty much replayed all the stages with both modes unlocked so far to get exp, but can not level up to 16...dont know what to do.

Good job on 2-2 and 2-3! Do you know how to anger waves? That is the key to higher experience levels. Drop a level 1 gem bomb on a wave -- you get more monsters and more xp. You can do this as many times as you can handle on a single wave. Wait till around wave 10 or so to start, when you have a nice mana farm set up (a row of traps with oranges in them). Doing this you should be able to get the experience you need. It works well on both normal and endurance. It is *much* more effective than rushing waves -- dont worry about calling waves early at all at this point. Let me know if you need more help. Also, dont forget mana pool (if playing endurance, use it once you have a nice mana farm set up, skip it on the regular levels till you get deeper into the game.)

Once you hit 16 you'll likely breeze through those levels your having trouble with.

Once we get the expert leaderboards in with the ipad update, we can fully analyze how people are doing on expert.

Stage 4-2

Did anyone else notice that the enemy wave makes a short cut on stage 4-2?

Hey Just an update on GemCraft. Universal iPad update went to apple a few days ago so now were waiting. In the meantime I wanted to share this image I made with you guys. Our half off sale may end when this update goes out. We are not sure so get while you can:

I can't wait for this to go universal, I tested the universal build of it on my iPad 1 and it played fantastically. This TD has quite a bit going on and the extra real estate definitely works better for me on iPad. Not to say I'm not addicted to the iPhone version of it.

Special thanks to araczynski and hbernritter for taking the time to try the iPad version. I totally forgot to put your names in the credits.
