it's not loading on IE and Opera for me. Anybody got idea why? Of all tower defense games I really like this series most so if anyone got clue what could be wrong please help :)

10-26-2009, 19:04:03
It's loading on both IE and Firefox for me. Are you getting an error message?? :wht: Is your flash player up to date?


10-26-2009, 19:30:13
Loaded ok for me on IE. Here goes the rest of my week and no more Diablo :( These are so addictive.

10-26-2009, 23:37:08
hm, no error message, just blank flash screen - rest of ninja website loads fine. I really like to play this one :( Is there an Epic monkey in it too?? Maybe some Super Epic Total Armagedon Monkey or something? :>

edit: ok, I got version 9.something of flash player so I'll update and will see if that helps :)

edit: updating did nothing...when I click on flash screen with right mouse button I can see "movie not loaded" - is there some super mega huge opening movie that might be loading for hour or something ? :-?

10-27-2009, 04:50:02
still not working for me either.

10-27-2009, 14:40:38
auuhg!! macabre! Why, oh why it's not working? :'( I wish I could ask this question to authors but on ninjakiwi site in contact zone says:

"Contact Ninja Kiwi
For any questions or concerns please contact Chris at ninjakiwi dot com."

and nothing more

I have played this for about 1 hour. It seems they want you to purchase mochi-coins to upgrade some monkeys. So far I have not gotten to levels with supermonkeys or anything that kills effectively. Will try again but afraid to say so far its disappointing.

10-27-2009, 19:59:08
I've checked everywhere for an alternate link. But I guess ninjakiwi doesn't want games hosted elsewhere. :(

I have emailed them about the issue, and if I get a reply, I will post it here. Sorry!!! :(

10-27-2009, 20:38:07
I played quite a bit today and found out you can get the SuperMonkeys and such as you get up in rank without purchasing Mochi-coins. If you lose a round you should keep your rank and all things that became available will still be active.

This one is tough.

10-28-2009, 04:05:21
So far, I've reached rank 25. I'm enjoying this one... I've completed track 1 on easy and medium, and tracks 2-4 on easy. It is a bit time consuming. :P

11-15-2009, 15:26:01
I am enjoying this one again as well. Up to rank 30 but have yet to finish a hard track. The upgrades are so expensive now. You really need your strategy planned out before dropping 10K on an upgrade that may or may not be the best. The final upgrade for SuperMonkey is the SUNGOD and costs 21,000. I have not yet made one yet.

Sandbox mode isn't much fun but I suppose you can use it to test ideas before going out and really spending the money.

11-15-2009, 18:31:42
i can't place the upgrade towers :(

11-15-2009, 18:59:31
Click on the tower you want to upgrade, and it should give you an option at the bottom to buy an upgrade for it. :)

11-18-2009, 01:13:48
@1234567 I have to Fullscreen the game (F11 on IE) to see all the options. Hope you figured it out.

I am rank 45 now and have completed all the tracks 1 gold, 3 silver, 2 bronze. Don't have a good strategy for Apocolypse yet.

Edit: A couple of screen shots:

This one is the easy level with lots of sun gods and banana research facilities. The game was lagging really bad by this point. The lights flickered and computer connection was lost so I don't know how long it would have continued but it looked invincible to me.


Edit: Took another try at Apocolypse mode with Monkey Apprentices. Made it to round 62.

I love tower defense games, but this series is one of the few to pull it off perfectly, with the value of pgrades balanced and a well thought out difficulty curve. Its INSANE near the end. Anyone new to bloons td should try the first one as this is quite hard. well done to the creator, and bring on number 5!

11-24-2009, 20:13:01
My last achievement was getting the silver on the advanced track (the big horseshoe). Current rank is 50. So far I have not used the glue cannon , monkey ace or the one that goes in the water at all.

One important note: If you register you can buy upgraded frag cannons for 0 coins. That helped A LOT.

I found a rather helpful glitch in BTD4 if anyone wants to see.


There's no real reason why I picked that level, and you don't need any coins. Those coins are only there from a free offer. Upon purchasing a premium upgrade, I realized that they are all completely useless (although if you want you can get them for free.)

As a last note, you need to be able to save your game to actually make money from this. Saving tons of money on towers is just a bonus for Apocalypse mode.

12-03-2009, 03:00:06
I don't see the glitch. How did you get nearly 2 million after playing 1 round and saving the game?

12-03-2009, 03:20:10
I suppose I can post it if you really want. It's funny, really, to see a sun god shooting darts instead of balls of light. To test it for yourself, I recommend starting a new game. Then, place two regular dart monkeys by the path on any level. Start the round, and wait for it to finish. Then, you'll have enough money and you can now save the game.

The glitch is to upgrade one tower and click another as fast as you can (you'll get the hang of it.) Then, you can skip the first upgrade on the second dart monkey. You should now have two dart monkeys with the 2nd upgrade, but only one has the first upgrade. Notice the selling price. If you do this with a super monkey and skip to sun god, then he will have missed out on all of the useful upgrades. However, if you do this with a monkey apprentice, then he'll have all of the spells (and, unfortunately, use the weaker spells.) That's how you take advantage of this glitch in Apocalypse mode.

Otherwise, you can stay at round 1 and save your game. Resume your game, and notice the selling price on your monkeys has gone up. Skipping to the camo upgrade for Monkey Beacon is the most cost-effective. Skipping to the laser upgrade for super monkey earns you the most profit. With Monkey Tycoon skipping to the sun god upgrade for super monkey earns you the greatest profit by far.

Hey all, I've been trying to play BTD4, from the ninjakiwi site, on my laptop but I only get the ninjakiwi logo and it freezes...nothing. tried the mochigames site and get the game up but no towers present and cannot click anything. tried other btd games...they work but don't finish right...they just stop no option to choose next track nor continue on in freeplay. This is a recent snag, as I did break down and get some mochicoins...and had been playing the premium tracks on my desktop, but facing snags with the laptop...any suggestions to get it working on this laptop? using XP with IE8 & Adobe Flash 10

:welcome: to GamersHood Forums eshaver.

I would do the following as first step:

Go to http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/155/tn_15507.html which will check your version of Flash Player.
The latest version is
If you have a lower version, update it, and restart your pc.

If you have the latest version, you could follow the instructions on that page to reinstall the Flash Player, and see if it helps.

Been running this in background. It is actually faster now than it was. Levels past 100 are taking about 10-15 minutes each.


Edit: I stopped at 108. Just taking too long to finish a level. Maybe when I get a supercomputer I will set it up again and see how long I can last.
