Build towers and upgrade them. Don't let the enemy tanks reach your base!

Can't get past mission 6 :(

Replaying mission 5 now until I have enough power-ups for 6.

Yay, finally done 6 :D

I think that I've found a bug in mission 29. Only my first Poison Tower worked, the next ones remained inactive, no matter where I placed them (tried several times to sell them and buy them again to place them elsewhere, but nothing).
Not sure if this is just a glitch in my game, or if there is indeed a bug for everyone.

Hmmm, okay, it seems that Poison Towers don't shoot at tanks that have already been poisoned :?

Finished! :D Although I didn't get all the achievements. I didn't bother to replay levels to get all.

I'm enjoying this one... a good time-waster for breaks from working from home.

02-14-2010, 20:48:07
I love this game, it reminds me of GemCraft.

The only problem is, it is very addictivate and you can end up spending hours and hours playing it.:D

02-14-2010, 20:53:50
Dalveen, that seems to be my problem.... So much for working from home. :P

Indeed, happened to me :$ :P
You'd think that a game called "Mini" is short, but this game turned out to be long and addictive :haha:

02-15-2010, 14:57:31
Very addictive. I am stuck on level 10. I might have messed up my skill tree allocation of points. Any tips on the best ways to spend them?

This is what I have done with them. I haven't bothered upgrading the freeze tower because I don't have enough starting cash to buy one.


02-15-2010, 15:06:10
I have usually worked with the basic towers to begin the levels, and at some point at around your level, I started to add a Poison Tower, too. 3 basic towers (as much updated as possible) plus a Poison Tower.
But I made the experience, that if you get stuck on a level and can't get past it, it's really good to follow the hint that the game developers gave, namely to replay an earlier level 1-2 times to get a power-up which should help you then to get through the beginning of the level. On the screen where you see the upgrades, you can also select the other tab where you can choose a mission. Or, if you go to the main menu, and then choose "continue" you also get to that screen.
I found that usually the beginning of levels was challenging, and then the last 2-3 waves when the enemy made a last attempt to get you.

02-15-2010, 15:09:38
Thanks. I hadn't seen that hint about replaying levels. I definitely need a boost to get past 10.

Will keep you posted on how it goes. Thanks again :hug2:

02-15-2010, 15:13:21
Yes, I had this on level 6, and two later levels. I had no chance to get through the first 3-4 waves no matter how I tried, so I did replay the previous mission or the one before 1-2 times. Once you have a power-up (e.g. more initial money), the next level will be possible.
I don't think that it's possible to go through the game without replaying levels from time to time - of course this is just my personal impression. But since the game developers give this hint, I suspect that this is intended.
Yep, post how it goes :)

02-15-2010, 18:46:26
How much fun I was missing! When you go back and replay sometimes you have one shot kills :) I agree you must go back and replay rather than go through all levels once.

At level 15 now and skill tree looks like this.


02-15-2010, 20:06:03
Yay, great progress :D

02-15-2010, 20:28:06
I love the poison gas tower. Upgrade that and use with the slowing down tower and see the devastation.:crazy:

02-15-2010, 20:42:09
Hehe yes, some tanks just disappear on their way suddenly due to the effect of the Poison Tower :evil:

02-15-2010, 22:51:22
Now that I have the trick it is backandforth. Really a good TD game.

02-15-2010, 22:57:11
Hehe, when I had enough power-ups, I was also experimenting with sending waves earlier, so that I had to deal with 2 waves :P :haha:
I don't know why I found this one so addictive, I mean I liked the graphics of the Mushroom TD series much better. And first I found it a bit annoying to have to restart for each mission (I mean that you couldn't keep your money), and also I wished the remaining life power of the tanks would have been displayed. But it got me hooked, and I just couldn't stop :haha:

02-17-2010, 15:23:08
Almost done. I have been using the same set up for the last levels poison at the entrance and a freeze/supertower at the exit and it works fine even sending two waves at once.

I won't get badges for using bombs as I have not invested a point in those.

02-17-2010, 15:30:07
I didn't use the bombs either :P
Hehe, yeah it's fun to run 2 waves at the same time once you have enough upgrades :haha:

02-17-2010, 16:43:02
Guess I went backandforth and got too powerful. The last levels were not even a challenge. Gonna replay some levels and try to get the expert score.

02-17-2010, 16:45:57
Do you have all achievements?

02-17-2010, 16:49:27
Not even close


02-17-2010, 16:50:39
I got about the half only :P
Seems there is still a lot to do :haha: Good luck :hug2:

02-17-2010, 16:57:12
I went back and played level 10 and sent every level all at once. I barely beat the experts score and got a gold medal and double the skill points. But on level 10 that was only 79 x 2. :(

02-17-2010, 17:25:48
I've got the expert score so far in the first 10 levels.

This is becoming an obsession with me:D

02-17-2010, 18:08:13
Me too dalveen. Getting the expert score is my latest obsession.

Edit: Hitting a slight roadblock at level 16 getting expert scores. I hate it when I come up 9 points short.

POP: Had to place tower closer to entrance. On to 17 for expert scores.

02-17-2010, 22:29:44
17 expert scores!

Looks like I've got some catching up to do :P

02-17-2010, 22:46:03
Just accomplished expert on 20. Halfway there.

02-18-2010, 01:28:20
RBS - Look at the time!! Are you still playing this game?:D

02-18-2010, 19:53:07
Honestly you are right dalveen, I am getting a bit weary of this one.

Here is where I am.



I should start looking into bombs though never used them


02-18-2010, 19:58:41
Well, you haven't many other choices than to upgrade the bombs, do you? :P

I did all levels, but didn't have all upgrades since I only replayed 3 levels in total when I got stuck, to get the necessary upgrades to continue. I spent almost the whole Sunday playing it - just coudn't stop until I had all levels done. But then decided not to replay levels to get more upgrades or achievements, otherwise I'd have spent some more days on it :P

What are those missing achievements, do you know that?

02-18-2010, 20:04:24
Not sure but the bottom row left to right are military badges. I am corporal for getting 25 levels done beating the expert score. The remaining 3 will be beating expert on 30, 35 and 40, pretty sure of that.

02-18-2010, 20:05:20
Ah okay :) Hope you can get them :D

02-18-2010, 20:07:38

You are missing the bomb achievements and the one for clicking on the link to the developer's website on the title page.

02-18-2010, 20:14:02
Thanks Jack. Thinking I might go back and use bombs the way roadspikes were used in Bloons TD. But getting those expert scores wore me out the last few days and need a break from game.
