I found that the best strategy is to use as many of the Mana towers as possible, to speed up building of towers.
(I have at least 10)
I also love the walls, mines and lightning...

yea i am stuck at level nine. I think this game is too hard to quick. For one, the cursor moves too slow on screen if anyone else has noticed this. I have tried everything to beat level 9 and feel dumb cause I owned p vs z yet this I cant get my head around....wish someone would post a walkthrough guide

This could have been an ok game but cursor movement is that much slow it ruins it

ok, in options you can choose to untick the game cursor option..it will be the normal cursor and that one is fast.

hi everyone

I have got to level 15 winning but to get 3 stars is nigh impossible quite early on. I am still not sure about the correct tactics but I put mana on the left row 1 with any weapons about 5 rows to the right and walls as far to right as possible.then I fill rows 1 to 4 with mana. nobody has posted about correct ideas so not sure if that is the best way just got massacred on level 15!!! as yet dont see any help anywhere else either so we will have to keep trying.

yea, i am stuck on level 9. I keep trying to put up as many mana wells as possible but as im bulding them and trying to save for the 100 mana towers the mobs come and knock down anything I put up. LIke it feels like I am doing hard mode...at level 9. This is ridiculous. Not fun really. And molliebabe, I didnt quite understand what you meant lol in your explanation. How do you keep them at my level from getting past me? Like even the 100 mana towers dont keep em all back. they destroy them!!!

Hello.

I played lots of TD games, all good flash games, I spend HOURS on Kingdom Rush and Defense Grid. But this is no TD game

Its rather an strange PvZ clone, very slow, very unpolished. The game crashed numerous times on me if I replay levels. I set the game on "XP Mode" in Windows (I'm on Vista 64 on the laptop) and the crashing vanished.

But now to the gameplay: Its very unbalanced. Without the ability to speed up you need lots of patience. It gets steep quickly if you don't know what you are doing. I got to level 24 with three stars with these tipps:

(Counting Colums from left to right with col 1, col 2...etc)

Timing is absolutely critical in this game. Don't panic, especially in the beginning it gives you enough time to plan the layout. Get used to the rhythm of cards refueling and the true power of certain elements.

+ Start in the middle, col 5, built mana fountains until you have the full column. Place all firing towers behind it. The second batch of fountains should be on col 2, and later on col 3.

+ Don't waste mana early on flash attacks - rather build up more mana fountains and tiny walls. They fend off easily three or four soldiers so you have enough time to wait and spend it on building towers and fountains.

+ Build cannons, later double cannons behind the middle row. Wait until real attackers appear on a row. I had levels where the top and lower row where only used by lower attackers so don't waste multiple cannon power on those.

+ When the col 5 mana towers are destroyed (and replaced by walls) you should have col 2+3 with mana fountains. 10 is a good number to have enough mana coming in.

+ Spikes are useful, but first have the first column of towers until you build those. Two on a row kill every normal soldier, the tower should waste the metal laced one with four shots plus. Later I replace them with rows of flesh eating plants. Three in a row fix even the baddest crowd

The ideal line looks like this:
Crossbow/TripleCrossbow, Mana, Mana, Firetower/Ice, Firetower/Ice, Wall, Spike/Plant, Spike Plant

Now I have to deal with the darn Pumpkinhead, a remarkable and annoying foe.

thanks katsunny

at least I have a good idea now on correct strategy and hopefully it will get me through to the higher levels.by the time I do that I am sure you will have cracked the whole game and look forward to your help then !! good hunting.

i do play alot of games and this one does have a steep difficulty or it is simply too slow dont see many more people purchasing this game

I have a question to BigFish

Yesterday there was 8 reviews with 5 stars (and 27 reviews)...and today only 3 (and 22 reviews)...and google shows 27 votes

What's happening? Why are you deleted them?

I beat level 23 with 3 stars.
I usually have 2 columns of fountains, then a column of the basic tower, column of ice tower, column of fire thrower, and lots and lots of fences, bombs, lightning, and man-eating plants!

Now however, I am STUCK on level 24 - the one with the Pumpkin-throwing enemy - its impossible!
Nothing seems to kill them, and they absolutely demolish my defenses!

Anyone got any ideas???

(PS - I LOVE that this game is difficult, definitely got my game credits worth on that one...)

@Trish

I mean Firetowers ("cannons") and Spikes or (the / is a 'or') flesh eating plants.

@Livibop

The pumpkin takes lots of damage. I had to freeze multiple times to get the reload of the fireball and flash until he goes away. But he comes back a second time in the final rush, and thats the bad one.

One tipp: plaster everything with flesh eating plants! They eat the rolling bomb pumpkins. I didn't survive the last five games, and I had 5 triple ballistas. Something very (big)fishy is going on. This level is unbeatable if you don't know how.

Thanks Katsunny.

I figured Pumpkin-man couldn't be killed, so I started focusing on the pumpkins he threw, but still no success.
I've never used the freezing thing, so maybe I'll give that a go.

There's so many different weapons etc, so many potential strategies...
I will not be beaten - I will get it done eventually.

Here I go...

Done it!!
Muahahahaha!

The freezing spell did it I think, just gives you more time to re-load the other spells...

I'm now only 3 levels away from finishing - every level on Gold-star!

Okay Holy Chit is Level 24 hard. This is a very challenging game, love it!!

I find it's a different set up everytime. Some similarity but you really have to run through the level a few times to figure it out.
