Lawl, you better not try Highway To Hell. I'm stuck at Brighton Bridge atm. It's like my health can only have two values: full and empty. Nothing between those.

Exactly the same here. I wish there was some kind of way of judging health.

Funniest. Stolen flash. Ever.

Man, I could have added another point to my whistle status if it was still up. Too late, I guess.

The author added a new medal called "Who Can Do This?"(100 points)-reach stage 35,the developer cannot do this.
Thats a really hard medal to get! My highest score is 2,147,483,647 and a couple of other people have got the same score as me, but yet I have not reached wave 35 yet.

Anyone have any tips they can spare please?

Patience, patience, patience. It was a total fluke that I got a 38 combo, and it takes a 37 combo to get that medal. Most of your playtime you'll spend watching the grid fill up so you can get to the next round because the one you're on didn't give you anything promising. Also, don't be afraid to take away 2 or 3 of your target critter if it opens you up to 8 or 9 more.


Deploy the... it's a yellow button... it's usually flashing... it makes the engines go... whoosh!

Please help fund my horror novel. I'll love you forever.

Can I just go ahead and start a petition to have this and all of the medals from Plinko and Drop the Bomb removed??? An achievement should not be based solely on luck.

Come on, there is full, half and empty... I can totally hit one vehicle and survive...

Having said that, there is always at least two burning car blockades that cover the whole road while trying to beat Tunnel Drive. So close, and yet so far.

Huh. I just loaded the game to give it another attempt and got Nuke Watcher, Highway to Hell and Pinball while at the level select screen... Everyone try and load the game and see if something similar occurs for you.

Well I've noticed that when you're near death the screen starts flashing red, but that's pretty much it.

Also, I didn't get medals when I loaded the game, like Contradiction said.

Sorry, I guess there is a little bit of strategy involved in this game, unlike Plinko and Drop the Bomb. I managed to get ~30 bunnies at once for 8 billion by moving them around and waiting for new rows.

Well, I got over 5,000 points in the Gretel and Hansel Part 2 Preloader, like someone said, it was supposed to be a secret medal? I know the first secret medal is issued at 1k in the preloader.

Well, I hit 5k and nothing happened. The preloader stopped giving me anything to click and that was it. I refreshed the page, and no medal.

Can anybody verify that this is what's required for that medal? Is it broken? I'm not doing that over again...ever...

I can verify that I got 5000 points in the preloader minigame to achieve "HOLY SHHHHH". It also allowed me to go to ~5100 before I quit...

I got that one two days ago. So far those are the only two medals i've even tried for on G&H2 and they worked fine.

Thank you for the guide. Would be awesome if every game had a guide. It reminds me of getting a new video game and reading instruction manual.

Notice regarding the Pinball medal in RotD: to claim this medal, you must first get it in-game and then restart the game. I just noticed. Also, still stuck at Brighton Square, but I keep getting further. My windshield just keeps crashing too fast.

I got some medals while not being logged in, so I asked the game's author to put a resend medals button in the game. This is what he replied me:

"the game saved achievements locally and resends all the medals everytime it launches"

So, you probably got those medals before, but they didn't send, so when you played it again, you got them!

I got it! Must have been a glitch last time.

I was trying to play music to keep me from losing my mind, seeing as how I've now clicked 10,000 faces, and since windows sucks, I ended up playing through the new iTunes Gretel and Hansel Part 2 skin

-___-

Oh well, at least I got the damn medal.
