Final score calculation

I'd dearly love to know the final score calculation. I've figured it's close to Score + Cash/2 - but I wonder if Lives Left has any bearing in there as well. Anyone ?

i hope this will help those

The most important thing to

The most important thing to do to beat the hard level is to either play enough times you get a feeling for, or keep track of past results, the bare minimum you can spend to get through a level.

It is very very helpful to spend the least amount possible in the early rounds of the hard level. This way by building up a savings you draw interest at the end of each round which is MUCH more money than you gain by killing the enemy.

Another tip - position your defenses so that after their range grows from upgrades (AND their range grows from kills too!), that range covers as much of the path as possible, but put your most powerful pieces in the middle at beginning and end of the paths instead of using up valuable positions with weaker defenses.

Another tip - use the volcano instead of spending over $100.something to increase your defenses, EXCEPT for the first half of the hard level, for the first half save the volcano for the air rounds.

Another tip - you will usually need to upgrade at the Split levels, they are significantly harder than each successive level became in difficult.

Another tip - the link at the end of the game to high scores like 80,000 points? The scoring system is broken, when you are good at the game you will score higher and higher instead of just completing the hard level, I noticed over 100,000 point games but it still won't show up on the website as that score due to being broken scoring reporting.

To me, not just winning but getting a really high score is more important than trying to do it without green laser heads. Green laser heads rule, and they make a less annoying sound to listen to during gameplay... and yes I know you can turn sound off but I'd rather hear lasers lol.

Comments? To do it the eazy

Comments? To do it the eazy way..
MAx blue "freezes" enemies and therefor multiplies the effectivness of any weapon.
Green lazer increases in range ,speed and power for each upgrade
Max green and blue is the key for the ez way.
look at the pics others have posted. theres many ways to beat it using green lazers

HA! HA!! I (you) can beat the hard level even WITHOUT the green lazer heads!!! Now you will go crazy trying!! but it can be done!
Of course.... I'm much smarter than you. Try creating an excel spreadsheet of power,range ,speed vs $$$ and increase /$$ it will help. If I get good comments I will post hints.
PS the I'm smarter comment was just to piss you off and motivate you!

Where you put heads is very

Where you put heads is very important. First put them near entrance, but a

few blocks away so their range grows with kills. Put blue head in center

next to entrance. Put gray heads at corners where they have more range.

put green heads in center where growing range allows covering both paths to

the exit. Except for first green head, put green heads at exit before

entrance so gray heads get hits and green heads at exit grow their range

more. The key is green heads placed in middle a little from entrance and

exit, and blue heads to slow enemy while in their range, making green heads

most effective.

Buy the bare minimum you need to finish a level, drawing interest on money

not spent. If you underestimate what to buy, have volcano charged for

emergencies. In later game levels, using volcano is cheaper than upgrading

green heads sooner.

At Level - Buy this
=====================

01 - 3 gray heads
03 - 1 gray head
05 - 1 blue head, upgrade once
06 - 2 gray heads
08 - 2 gray heads, upgrade blue head
11 - 7 gray heads (most bought after you see which way boss goes)
12 - Upgrade blue head 3 more times (to max)
14 - 1 gray head
15 - 1 gray head
16 - 2 gray heads
17 - 4 gray heads
18 - volcano air enemy
19 - green head at entrance (not necessary to complete level, but it grows

green head range before next boss level)
20 - Upgrade green head once, buy green head across from exit
21 - 24 gray heads (wait to see which way boss goes)
24 - 17 gray heads, upgrade green head at exit
25 - upgrade green head at exit again, you will lose 2-3 lives but it's ok.
29 - buy green head at rear, upgrade once
31 - buy blue head at exit, upgrade 3+ times
33 - upgrade same head to max if not at max already
35 - upgrade newest green head at exit 1 time, buy geen head across from

entrance, upgrade twice

36 - buy blue head in middle, two squares before green heads at exit,

upgrade 3 times
39 - upgrade newest green head at entrance 1 time, sell two gray heads to

make room to buy two blue heads at top and bottom spaced away from 1st blue

head so enemy stays slow, upgrade both blue heads to max
42 - sell two gray heads, replace them with two blue heads at top and bottom

spaced away from exit blue head to slow enemy, upgrade both to max
44 - blue head in middle, spaced between first blue head at entrance and

blue head bought on lvl 36, upgrade to max. Upgrade other middle blue head

to max. Upgrade newest green head at exit one time

50 - See linked picture http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/3076/easterislandlvl50.jpg
for an idea where heads are and how much they're upgraded at this point. Note how the selected green head has a large range that gradually grew from prior kills to cover both the top and bottom paths to the exit. When adding new heads put them in line with these 4 heads closer to the middle of the playing field and upgraded to max so their range already covers the top and bottom path a little.

You should have roughly $14,000 at this point if all went well. Use volcano if your existing 4 green heads aren't enough to kill the bossair by themselves.

52 - buy green head one square before those at the exit, upgrade to max

54 - Sell all your gray heads, you don't need them anymore (too ineffective) and money gained will draw interest. It will also make the game much less noisey ;)

55 - buy green head one square after those at the entrance, upgrade to max.

56 - Doesn't matter much what you do now, upgrade the 6 existing green heads to max one at a time, leaving some money to draw interest.

Thank you very much for the

Thank you very much for the hard level purchase strategy.

Following it fairly closely I beat the hard level for the first time ever, on the first try.

The secret I was missing was that upgraded blue heads, and more of them, have a cumulative additional slowing of the enemy, so for me the key was buying twice as many blue heads and previously I wasn't upgrading them.

I was also trying to use yellow heads previously but didn't buy any this time.

Thanks!

Now I can move on to Canyon TD, lol.

I had every possible position

I had every possible position on the board filled with grey heads except for all remaining funds spent on green heads and STILL did not have enough firepower for past level 30-something on the hard level.

I appreciate the anonymous reply but it leaves out a few important details needed to make it work, I was already getting to the middle levels it's the higher ones that are a problem.

Some Basic Principles: - Grey

Some Basic Principles:

- Grey Heads are best value for money
- Blue Heads are strong enough to kill early level Air enemies and slow down other enemies
- Aim to introduce Green Heads as soon as possible
- Build up money reserves with Interest
- Position your units where they will have the most impact

Hard Level Purchase Strategy:

Lvl 1: You only need 4 Grey Heads
Lvl 5: Buy 1 Blue Head and upgrade it twice to handle the Air enemy
Lvl 6: Buy 2 more Grey Heads
Lvl 11: Buy 20 more Grey Heads to defeat Boss1
Lvl 12: Upgrade your Blue head to maximum level to handle the Air enemy
Lvl 17: Buy 4 more Grey Heads
Lvl 18: Volcano the Air Heads
Lvl 20: Buy 2 Green Heads
Lvl 21: Let Boss2 get through - it is only the loss of 1 life, and you gain extra interest by not purchasing anything
Lvl 22: Upgrade both Green Heads, You may have to use Volcano again too, don't lose any lives at this early stage
Lvl 23: Buy 15 Grey Heads (You may lose some lives here)
Lvl 25: Use Volcano on Air Enemies
Lvl 26: Upgrade 1 of your Green heads
Lvl 29: Upgrade the other Green head
Lvl 33: Upgrade both Green heads, may need Volcano
Lvl 35: Buy 2 Blue Heads, upgrade as much as possible

I don't want to spoil the whole thing, but from here you should be able to win following the strategy of creating Blue and Green heads together and upgrading them

Could someone give a strategy

Could someone give a strategy for beating hard mode? I cannot get it!!

Can anyone who has gotten

Can anyone who has gotten even halfway through the hard level give some hints, hopefully a screenshot of your defenses?

Medium is now way too easy for me but I can't even kill the bosses except the first, maybe second one on hard and always get stuck by level 30.

What is the best firepower per $ to use, I always run out of firepower (money) even trying to hold off and gain interest?

Basically I think there should be at least 4 skill levels instead of 3, one level inbetween this medium and hard, or a mercy button that gives you more lives.
