Which levels do you love/hate?

Posted in Towers on July 8th, 2010 by Adam

Thank you to everybody who has sent in suggestions so far. We’re picking through our favourites and will get back to you soon with what we think is going to go into the next update.

One thing that will definately happen is more modifications to the difficulty. I can’t give exact details yet, but what we will be doing is looking into certain levels that are generally regarded as being a little (or a lot) tougher than those around them. There’s also been a general concensus that the easier difficulty levels should provide a chunk more starting mana.

Previously, Everwinter Trail was quite a stumbling block for some. Adjustments were made and I’ve not heard too much on it since. Do you think it’s better?

Other levels that have been mentioned as being a bit tough include Spellsong Forest, Northcut River, Heath’s Field and The Narrows. Do you agree, and also, do you have favourite levels?

Everwinter Trail – Walkthrough

Considered one of the toughest of the earlier levels, Everwinter Trail is unforgiving to many.

An upcoming update will remedy this and also add adjustable difficulty to the game.

In the meantime, here’s our tried and tested walkthrough:

Everwinter Trail – Some Tips

Posted in Towers on June 13th, 2010 by Adam

Under Attack

People seem to be buying Towers and the general feedback is positive. However some people have expressed concerns that level 6 – Everwinter Trail – is a bit on the tough side. This is the level that introduces the Blade Tower and the larger flying monsters.

Tips:

  • The right hand side of the level has the widest section of path, so isn’t ideal for most towers. You’ll most likely find that your towers can be more successful on the path section along the bottom half of the map
  • The Blade Tower is one of the most useful towers on this level. Try to save your money to upgrade it in time to hit the large flyers. Note that a well placed Blade Tower can devastate multiple units in a row, so experiment with good placement positions.
  • The small yellow monsters and speedy purple monsters on this level can be numerous. The best thing you can do to make these waves easier is to slow them down, at this point they’ll be closer together and more susceptible to splash damage attacks like those from Lightning Towers and in particular Cannon Towers .

Finally, we have an update in progress that will allow individual levels to be played at an easier difficulty, to allow people to get past tougher levels and unlock later levels (which can then be played in either difficulty). As well as this, Everwinter Trail in particular will receive some updates to make it a little less of a difficulty spike.
