Anybody doing medium?

I have been trying to get through some levels at medium, but
I loose so many lives, that I cannot get enough gold to get ahead of the curve.

My best strategy has been an areatower and the heattower...

Any advice?

I could use some pointers as well. Easy was easy enough, but I leak really early on medium.

I just went back to see if the game had changed, and it hadn't as far as I can see.

There is a hard level to this game - consider it a challenge. How do you do the medium level - has anyone done more than the beginning of level 5?

I really like the game, if it just was a bit more possible! I like that making a maze is a challenge in and of it self, coupled with the towers giving more damage for the money when upgrading rather than massing.

Re: Anybody doing medium?

I completed everything in EASY and NORMAL. I have completed up to Area 17 in HARD.

For NORMAL MODE, I suggest the following:
1. Start with snipers.
This isn't going to work on every level but it worked on most for me. Snipers have incredible range and that seems to provide a happy medium to their firing rate when you are trying to find that tipping point where all things start to work out. Usually, I start with sniper(s) and get electro towers asap. Then, I start building the heat ray towers for coverage (upgrading them asap).

2. Ice Towers for coverage
Ice towers make a huge difference. I usually start by placing them, when I can first afford to spend money on them without compromising a wave, near the entry point(s). Then, I place them for coverage so there are multiple points for enemies to be slowed down by them. When placing them, just using distance (the range they can detect) is not accurate because unlike other weapons, distance affects how quickly the Ice Towers can deliver blows. You might want to place them closer than you might think so the enemies stay slow. That said, one Ice Tower is better than none.

3. Heat Ray and Rocket Turrets to close the deal.
Usually, after I start to feel I have passed the tipping point (in my favor) I add more Heat Ray and Rocket Turret towers in order to make sure I am covered.

These are just bullet points. I use all the towers in NORMAL and HARD modes nut the notes above, at least for me, are strategy points.
