Beat the correct level. You get the trap very late, its the end map in one of the last forks. I think the trap is pretty crap unless you have automatic activator on it, so basically only good for endless.
I beat all level including the casino but I didn't unlock the spear trap. I am currently level 68.

Do you mean Aerial assault? That map where I first found spear traps and also flying machines? Do I have to beat it again with runes or in endless wave mode or something? The level doesn't say "unlocks spear trap".

Oh and btw, I'm playing the mobile version v1.02m.
However, the only thread I could find about the spear trap was from 2015. It wouldn't be unreasonable to expect they patched it into the mobile version 2 years later, would it? I mean especially when the level already comes pre-generated with them.

I'm sorry, but Spear Trap is not included in the mobile version. In PC, you have left click for trap activation and right click for trap upgrade menu. But in mobile we found it difficult to elegantly solve the problem so we just disabled it.
That is sad to hear. Isn't the trap necessary for higher levels?

And another question. Is that the same reason why I can't seem to find the indestructable barricade upgrade and why endless waves spawn tons dwarves and other special units? I seem to recall you tuned their spawnrates down on the PC version.

Not really. I dont know how the traps behave on the mobile but on PC you can usually go with other traps depending on the level. If you are going to do an all runes on all levels I dont think I ever even used them once when I did it.

The mobile version seems to be some versions behind the PC version. The Inferno Trap bug where its flames only extend half a tile rather than the full three is present which was fixed on PC.

I'm a bit worried about Shallow Grave now oof, was very hard in PC and I'm glad they made it optional, as well as filling in one of the gaps in the center. Still hard, but that made it much more bearable (Beat it before that change though aaah took forever xD)

Yeah, its one of those levels thats going to give you a headache before you beat it. I beat it and I tried so many strategies I dont even remember which one worked anymore. I just remember that there were several that almost worked for me. I think I just lucked out on one of those by really stretching it with optimization and timing. Im talking about all rune run here if that isnt obvious.

Idk Shallow Grave without runes is pretty easy tbh (the old version, without indestructible barricade). Anything from spear trap spam, over flame turret kill zone to just plain lightning trap spam can beat it. There are plenty of good wall slots and environmental hazards. Just a matter of not being underleveled.
However, the waves come a bit too strong too quickly to finish it with 10 runes I think.

That said, there are plenty of levels with this kind of difficulty, like for example the one with the sacrificial pit (which leads to casino) - don't remember the name. Never managed to beat that with 10 runes either. 8 was the best I could do.
