Highest level earned?
Just wondering how hi some folks got. I just busted level 40 and noticing game starting to get abit harder getting more exp. Still experimenting with different layouts and power ups for different traps/combos.

I do see a chievie for hitting 50 so I assume its possible but wondering how far past that folks made it.

I don't know how to post a screenshot, but that's my record of secret level with 6 runes. the key idea is to use lv50 mechanical boost and blackhole trap combo to kill most of monsters. falling is the best way to kill the minion of midas with 6+ runes so there is very necessary to put lv4 soul harvester in the right place (as image shows). you can keep 4 slot machines at the start of game or even build more of them, but overall it won't affect a lot.

Haven't finished the game yet, but I'm over level 100.

Edit: well, I finished the game, but I haven't got the last achievement for all levels with 6 runes yet.

Wow, nice, Given me something to shoot for. Just got to 43 today so have a ways to go :).

I see from other games you are a bulldog when it comes to completing them. Saw many posts from Teraform and a few others you played too.
dholland Jul 30, 2016 @ 12:38pm 
Terraform is one of my favourite games. I wish there were more levels!

From screenshots, after upload screenshot to cloud, do view online, double click screenshot, double click address bar (with up arrow, opens another window). Now the address can be cut and pasted into message and will show the thumbnail.

I havent gotten over level 100 yet, but for those of you trying to reach it maybe check out my 4 million XP Ore Storage video.

@Hero_Weasel: I learned a lot from you! From the forum, I saw a suggested method for Heroes must die with 8 runes, just managed it.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=736518325

I'd like to know what the state of play is for levels with 7-10 runes (I've done all with 6 runes which wasn't too hard at my level).

Thank you very much dholland, always happy to be of some service.

As for runes of 7-10 its doable for several levels, though in my opinion the most deadly runes are "Purity & Trinity" to the player.

Cutting your bonuses in half and limiting you to 3 traps easily has the largest impact on your flexibility and power when it comes to dealing with the maps.

Most 8 rune runs omit the Purity and Trinity runes because the other runes power up the enemy waves, while those drastically weaken you.

A way to test for a 10 rune run would be to first try it with just 2 runes, Purity and Trinity. Make a plan based on the results, try again adding 2-3 runes (strongest runes first weakest last) and see how it goes.

I cant say that Iv done any 10 rune runs, but I know they can be done.

As for all maps 6 rune achievement, thats why I used 6 runes in my videos in case someone was going for achievement hunting.

@Hero Weasel thanks for the tips.

Just one suggestion if I may, please turn down sound effects as it drowns out your voice later in vids. You speak and only a few words get thru ungarbled.

Thank you for the advice, I had turned them down somewhat, but I must not have turned them down enough. If I make another one, I will be sure to turn it down a few more notches.

Just used some of your tips and made it to wave 105 on that map. I used push traps over the spinblades to help thin them out more.

Thanks again for the tips.

Now to get past shallow grave...grrrr
Hero_Weasel Aug 2, 2016 @ 6:00pm 
Yes, push traps are more efficient there.

I dont think I mentioned them, but they would be very efficient.

Shallow Grave shouldnt be too hard, but it is my least favorite level... I made a video for it and didnt even bother to do it perfect. I just, I dont like that level.

There are many ways to beat it, but that was mine, take a look if you have too much trouble with it.
mikeydsc Aug 2, 2016 @ 6:02pm 
I saw your vid in other post. Its good also.

My problem was, I was not giving spin trap its due. Things just raced by most traps and ended maps early. After seeing you stack a few of those, I got a few ideas and redid did some of my lines of thinking and now things are going much smoother.

Thanks

Thanks. Certainly agree about purity! I can start -purity with 10000g, certainly makes high rune runs easier (Shallow Grave, I laugh at you. Those dwarves need to try harder :-)) so trinity runs are doable for me (and challenging), but multiple trap combos are more entertaining. Some people have produced very creative setups for high rune runs, and I hope will post more for the more challenging levels. I can't guarantee anything very creative, but if I crack some tough high-rune runs that haven't been posted with screenshots I'll post them.

Edit: I've done several 10 rune runs but only for easy early levels. Nothing clever or interesting, just leverage high level to brute force with Soul Harvester, bolt and spinblade, using Mechanical Boost or bomb.

Thanks very much for the ideas. I modified your setup to get 8 runes: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=736974987 http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=736975065

Edit: it turns out not necessary to have a soul harvester, as you can get cash from the slot machines and by dumping enemies in the cash pits. But I had over 5000 gold to start with purity, obviously you need to have a lot of traps built at the start, so the method may require a high gem level.

Edit: I don't know if you can tell from the screenshots, but I had 2 springs pointing up, the green one to the right, the rest pointing down, and I had the barricades below the pit built at the start. Only units which overflow the down springs and get thrown up and diverted to the cash pits will make you cash. So I put the Mechanical Boost on an up spring.
