Locked Tower Locations

[Post New]by wxman77477 on Aug 16, 13 6:40 AM
On almost all levels there are a few tower locations that you must "buy" with barrels. So far I have come across three that will not accept your attempt to buy the tower location. On Arctic Ocean, Levels 4, 6 and 7 have such a tower location. It is the leftmost location in all Levels. There may be more, but I have just played through Level 7.

Try clicking below the barrel that appears when trying to purchase locked locations that just won't unlock. It's worked for me on some levels.

It seems like the spot to click doesn't always line up with the barrel - I've just moved my mouse around a bit until it worked.

I will try that again but it did not work for me on 2-7 for the second spot, bought the first just fine.

I find I have to click well below the barrels and it realeases them

On some of them quite a bit below

I created a new player as to attempt a new strategy in buying upgrades with limited barrels (still waiting on the developers to fix the Mac version) and this time around the barrels on the left side that were locked regardless of where one clicked (on, under, by, over) are now no different than all the rest. Has anyone else noticed this?

I think I have sussed it (on my computer anyway). Click to open the locked location, then leave for 3-4 seconds, then click on the barrel. This has worked every time on the ones I was having trouble with. Hope it works for you too.
