Gold Walkthrough for Slow Clickers: General Tips (read first)

[Post New]by robin94122 on Jan 31, 12 7:29 PM
This is not a fully detailed walkthrough, just notes for slower clickers who are having trouble getting gold. I am not a fast clicker, but I was finally able to get gold on all levels. I will post the notes 15 levels at a time as I get them written up. Please do not copy any of this material to any other site. Thanks!

General Tips:
Slow clickers will probably need all upgrades in order to get gold on all levels, so this walkthrough assumes you have them already.

THE SHOOTER WEAPON

One of the most important tips is to use the Shooter weapon. This one causes zombies, including vultures and slugs, to randomly drop “useful items” when you kill them—pumpkins, jack o lanterns, or dynamite. They won’t drop empty crates or any of the other items, but on several levels it seems like the only way to get gold is if a zombie drops a jack o lantern or a dynamite for you.
To change weapons, go to the laboratory. Click on the chart of what’s available. On the right side of the chart is a treasure chest—click on it to open the Armoury. When the Armoury opens, select the weapon you want to use. Choose the Shooter, which is on the left side with the Jack O’Lantern face. You won’t see any difference in the graphics while you’re playing, but you will notice that zombies occasionally drop items for you.

LEVEL BY LEVEL

Unlike some other similar games there is no single overall good strategy. On some levels you’ll need to upgrade the wagon, on others you won’t. On some you’ll need the helper to pick up items, on others you won’t. You really need to look at each level independently to figure out what strategy will work best.

THE COINS GOAL

In this game, if you have a coins goal you can make it at any time during the level, not just at the end. So if you have a goal of 500 coins, you could get 500, then spend the coins buying things, and you’ll still have met the coins goal.

SCROLL BONUSES

Pay very close attention to what selling bonuses are available on a level. You can see these by clicking on the wagon and reading the scrolls on the right, or by hovering your cursor over the scrolls on the outside of the storehouse in the main scene. You won’t always go for these, but you will have to to get gold on some levels. In particular, notice when filling an order saves you time. For example, if a golem and a jack o lantern get you a bonus 600 coins, that’s almost as good as waiting for a red golem, and a lot faster.

You can only get one bonus per scroll per wagon trip. So if you get a bonus of 100 coins for selling a stone and a pumpkin, you won’t get two bonuses if you sell two stones and two pumpkins on the same trip.

However, you can use the same item to count towards two different scrolls on the same wagon trip. So if one scroll gives a bonus for selling a stone and a pumpkin, and another scroll gives a bonus for selling a pumpkin and a jack o lantern, you could get both bonuses on one trip by selling one stone, one pumpkin, and one jack o lantern.

MILITARY MAN UPGRADES

When you buy the upgrade for the military man, the same upgrade will apply to all the military men you buy on that level. So if you buy a military man for 150 and then spend 100 coins for the helmet upgrade, when you buy a second military man for 150 he will automatically have the helmet without spending any more money. This is good and bad. Good because you only have to pay the upgrade fee once per level. Bad because you can’t have one military man with a helmet and a different military man with a carbine.

The military man is not affected by a cactus so if he is the only vampire on the field you don't have to click on any cacti.

GOING BACK TO REPLAY A LEVEL

Once you complete the mini-game after Level 75, you lose your silver and gold status for any previous levels. So if you want to make sure you have all levels gold, quit that mini-game without completing it until you’ve done 1 – 75 gold. However, if you do complete the mini-game after level 75 and you start a new game under the same profile, you do get to keep all the upgrades you already purchased in the laboratory.

PUMPKINS

You can sell a pumpkin for 10 coins. However, if you leave it on the ground and let it rot, a slug will come to eat it. Click on the slug several times and it will turn into a coin that’s worth 20. Pick up the rotted pumpkin after you’ve killed the slug and you can sell it for 5 more coins. So a fresh pumpkin is worth 10, but a rotted pumpkin may be worth 20 or 25. And if you’re using the Shooter weapon, the slug may even drop a “useful item,” making it worth even more.

FIGHTING ZOMBIES

It is very important that slow clickers keep machines going and products picked up even If you are in the middle of fighting zombies. The regular zombies will not steal the machine products, only the vultures do that.

If you buy a military man, your eye will be drawn to his red uniform and you will tend to click on the same zombie he is already fighting. Instead, choose a zombie that is attacking one of your vampires and click on that. This will get rid of the zombies faster. The exception is a football zombie. The military man will need help with them unless you purchased the helmet upgrade for him.

Hi robin94122,

Wow, thanks for creating these helpful threads!

Since we don't have any plans to post a Blog walkthrough for this game, we'd be happy to sticky these to the top of the Vampires Vs Zombies Forum page for you.

Thanks again!

Thanks so much to Robin94122 for the help. It was very hard to get gold on some levels. The time limit for each level seems to be shorter than on other TM games or else I am getting slower!!
