Fun but I can't really get anything but the shrapnel to work well. Have to experiment more!

I find that acid works best for me. It has a good spread and it clings when anything besides spiders walk on it. It seems that spiders are quite resistant to most things, except fire. BURN THE BUGS.

Also, it's revealed in the hints that you can set the acid on fire, but this is only useful when you're fighting larger nasties.

What do you like for taking out the witch?

Yellow Goop is quite handy against witches, since it sticks to them and continues to do damage.

I'm such a fan of the shrapnel, though: it covers a wider area, you can launch it at the back of the crowd and still hit things in the front, if you accidentally hit your wall the exploding bits will still hit enemies, it'll blow right through skeletons like butter...

It's pretty easy to just lob an acid potion right at her, and since it all sticks to her, she'll go down pretty fast.

Alternatively, you can try the gas cloud, but I prefer using the acid potion on everything.

I do best with whatever the red exploding dots are. A simple mix of blue 6, red 0, and yellow 5 takes down pretty much everything (so far). Of course, I'm only on level 8...

Level 30 and the shrapnel still kills everything in sight, although the fire on 100/100/100 helps kills the giants...

...and all their little helpers it seems. Level 30 is bloody difficult, big fire helps a lot. PRO TIP: those quick little dog things can't actually kill you it seems, ignore them and shoot everything else. I had one attacking my little potion man for ~20s and nothing happened

I found a way to double your shrapnel count...

Wait until the potion explodes from the ground or the enemy, then click right when it starts to blow. It will explode twice without using any extra potion!



Double Shrapnel works on all potions, but only when they hit the ground. A good strategy for monsters at your wall is to make a shrapnel potion, shoot it straight up, then when it hits the ground, double it. It wipes out most lower-level enemies on the screen!

As long as we're fixing things, there's a couple other bugs I've found since the review was posted:

-The same double-explosion effect as Fred described seems to happen when shrapnel lands right at the feet of a monster.

-Quick reload doesn't seem to do anything on my computer. In fact, it causes a (one-time) bug where my launcher won't reload until I do something else, like buy some potion.

-At around level 12 or so, the game gradually starts running slower, even when the number of enemies is relatively low. I can almost always ignore warnings about speed when I play games, so I suspect this is some sort of memory leak or something. It seems like the reload is slowed down more than anything, but this might just be my frustration at the game :)

One of the best strategies I've found, at least, is a potion of around 10/60/30, it should make a purple vapor that hurts everything a lot. If you get the vile vapors powerup, it stays for a long time. It's very very effective. Just throw another one whenever it goes away, and you can hold off tons of enemies just with that.

Well, I got to level 31 and I could basically play for as long as I wanted. I can kill giants easily before they even get to my wall. There aren't any more new enemies, I think, and I have over $50k cash with all the upgrades. I can use whatever potions I like (usually 100/0/100 shrap ones, or 100/100/100 fire ones for the giants, or 90/90/100 acid ones as well) without losing cash. I wish there were more upgrades, and more new enemies, to keep it fun this far.

The game really became boring rather quickly. A 50/50/50 fire lobbed to the very right kills absolutely everything for a large amount of levels. At level 25 i was making enough to 100/ which will even kill a witch if you explode it above her. I think this is better than the acid, as the fire will move through the witch, kill her, and then keep damaging the things on the ground. But as i said, a large fire spell was all this game needed.

Another great game from Ninja Kiwi! I've been playing it for 2 hours now, and I don't want to stop!
It may even sound strange, but I got to level 23 using potions like 1/1/1 (tiny fire), 1/1/2 (bright yellow acid), 1/1/0 (shrapnel) and even another small combination. Since I didn't need to buy many potions, I could spend more money with the upgrades, so both of the fire upgrades had been bought around level 12, plus the first stage of Vile Vapours.
Also, did anyone else have a problem on setting the potions? The reload clock wouldn't reload until I released the chains!

About the effects of the ingredient potions:

I don't think there's a difference between the red and yellow, though it may be that they are differently potent to different baddies. The ratio of blue to the sum of the other two seems to be the only thing that changes the directly observable effect of the potion.

How in the gosh darned hecky heck do you get rid of those white skeleton things? I can't find any effective formula for those.

By the way, as someone mentioned, the acid goop burns quite fiercly! What this means is that you can make a really cool napalm bomb type effect! Here's how:

First launch a fire potion, such as: b:5 r:5 y:5.
Second right away launch an acid goop potion, such as: b:3 r:5 y:5. The key is to aim the acid goop bomb right at the fire. When the acid hits the fire, it will scatter fire all over the whole floor.

@Crocker - yeah, the reload clock pauses while moving the chains. However, you can do a lot while paused. If you need to set a particular formula in a hurry, you can pause the game and move the chains, plus do things like buy more potions before unpausing.

I'm not positive, but the more "pure" colors seem to be the most potent. For example, a bright magenta (ratio of 3:10:10) makes a strong gas; the pure red (ratio of 11:5:5) makes a better explosive, etc.

correction: the pure red seems to be a 2:1:1 ratio... but you'll have to bump the blue up by one point once you reach the more medium-strength potions, or else it will give you a blue flame.

Did anyone, other that me, note that it's not possible to create a 1337 potion.

Example B:1 R:33 Y:7 or B:13 R:3 Y:7.

Because you can't get thirthyseven on the red chain, nor seven on the yellow one.

(If anyone manages to do it somehow, please tell me, is this the combination which equals an atomic bomb?)

1B,5R,5Y + stage 1(or higher) gas power = a gas that will be useful for more then 15 levels

10B,5R,5Y + NO BOOM(WASTE TIME)= good for white skeletons(doesn't kill too fast) and the first few levels until you get stage 1 gas power.

Spike Wall + noxious gas(with stage 1 or higher)/ shrapnel(no boom)= green slimes death faster(also when hit against wall)/white skeleton dies faster(also when hit against wall)

noxious gas + witch + Spike Wall + direct hit + little weaker monsters under witch = gas damages witch when impact against hit and the gas falls to the ground damaging monsters under, then Spike Wall finishes them off(not sure if apply to skeleton that well)

I recommend to not use fire and acid that much, unless your aim is bad with gas against the witches, then i WOULD recommend acid so it sticks to them.

Please do not read these spoilers if you want to complete the game without cheating! I have made these hidden for the people who want to play fair.
Read First:

Realy, to tell you the truth, play it fair to start with and then use the rest of the spoilers if you are stuck! They are all in different categorys so you can use them when you need them!


Worm & Black Skeletons:

To defeat the worm things and black skeletons use the Shrapnel.

Witch:

To defeat the witch use the acid.


Spiders:

To defeat the spiders use the flames.


White Skeletons:

To defeat the white skeleton use the gas. (if upgraded) or shrapnel.


Running Dog:

The running dog cannot harm you so don't worry about it.

Upgrade Tactics:

Upgrade all the time when you get the money too... start with the spiked wall... then the re-load!


Overall this is a great highly addictive game! and it is a even better game if you try hard at it!

Thank-you,

So is there a way to actually get the potions to fly OVER the wall, or are they supposed to explode right after they leave the cannon, like mine keep doing?

Once or twice they've flown over and hit the enemies, where they're much more effective, but usually they pop as soon as they're fired, so just the fringes of the blast actually hit the monsters.

Is the shrapnel upgrade really good? I upgraded and found it weird. It's like.. all the pieces just fly off the screen, What's so good about it? They hardly hit the enemies after they're upgraded.

I figured out that decimals count in these numbers. Something like that. I don't know if it's decimals. But anyway, if you start the game from the beginning, take the chains to 1/1/1 (from 10/5/5 er watever it is) it should be acid...or at least that's what happened to me. Then if you go to like 100/100/100 or something and change it back to 1/1/1, it should be fire (purple?). Then I experimented one more time and I put it on 0/0/0? or something and then put it back and it was red fire. WEIRD. If anyone has an explanation for this, can they tell me?

Well, I'm pretty sure the numbers represent the amount of color in each potion.. thus this means necessarily that if you use 100 of all three colors you actually get the most powerful potion. But there is a down side to that because the colors get empty really fast. So there is no "secret powerful potion" with the number combinations. You just have to apply enough colors to kill the monsters before the knock of your wall and save as much as you can for the next levels to come. Pretty simple and pretty boring.
