Help! Any advice on how to get past the warrior puzzle and keep the warlock alive? I've tried everything but all 3 of my men die every time!

I also struggled with this one and I think it's mostly cause the instructions are not all that helpful - in particular, if you lose the archer/warrior and if you have 100 coins, you can buy (revive) the dead one. You can only have 1 archer, 1 warrior, 1 warlock on the board at any time. That's why the instructions say the warlock must get through, cause he's the only one that you can't replace.

Other useful info:
Yes, it does seem to go on way to long. There is a scrollbar on the bottom right side showing you how far you have gotten through and how far to go.

Archer - shoots in a straight line, 2 (maybe 3) squares or less. Doesn't shoot through walls.
Warrior - attacks right next to the monster.
Warlock - shoots at a diagonal or straight line from 2 or more away. Can shoot through walls.

The circle right below the arrows, means attack again in while in the same position.

When you are going up, I like to be mostly at the bottom of the screen, this gives me a chance to position them in the best attack position before approaching the monster.

I got through with the warlock, archer and the 3rd revived warrior.

I just got it with only having to buy one more warrior. Have the warlock in back, the archer right above him, and the warrior one above the archer and one to the side. Move up one arrow at a time, when you come to an enemy maneuver so the warrior is next to it, the archer right below the enemy and the warlock 2 below the enemy. All 3 will then get a hit in and the enemy dies. There's a few spots where it gets tricky but I had more than enough money to buy another warrior when that happened. I got all three to the top easily and had well over $100 in reserve.
