Is there any way to play this game? I can't find anyone, and without them I can't earn medals...

I'll be on it for the next hour or so, in case anyone wants a chance for some medals from it.

We might have to set up some times when people are available to play it. I just don't see this as being a popular game.

A few spoiler strategy/observations:

Go to safe, enter 326 (from "the shiny"(the Shinning) poster). Grab the axe. Go to the hallway. Use the axe against the end of the hallway. Grab the chainsaw. Go to the next hallway. Use the chainsaw on the door at the very end of the hallway. The end.

Haven't figured out how to get the last 3 secret medals, involving dying, yet.

I don't think there really is a way to fail in this game. You can spam all 4 direction keys and still bag the item, without any negative effect to your points. Upgrade and spam. That's all there is to it getting all the medals for it.

some observations - haven't beaten all the levels, yet, for it.:

The game seems hard at first, but once you know that each enemy type seems weak against a certain tower (purple - speed tower, black - tesla tower - blue- acid tower, grey - slow tower, and bombs everything) it becomes a lot easier. Bombs, aside from certain towers, are probably the most important thing in beating the levels. They can destroy up to 3 small, to medium, enemies and kill most large enemies in one hit, with splash damage to the others.

Major glitch for this game. You can use the hint unlimited times, but beware that the hint is not always accurate.

"Tab" works great for this.

Neither axe nor chainsaw can crash the windows. But there is something in a safe which can do so...

This game is really challenging. It could really use some power ups.
Anybody have tips or a walk through?
Is it me, or is there no way to determine your level?

It's not that hard. Just remember the patterns and plan accordingly. Professor bombs can destroy all enemies in a room, without shields; and can likewise destroy multiple shields. Sometimes you have to wait until multiple targets are in one room before using them. Mystics are good for killing multiple targets, but will die if they destroy too many, or by using their power to destroy a shield. ...and I think they take a 3rd of the life from rival priests before dying. For manias, I often turn them and release them from the 3rd or 4th room, so they can hit multiple targets along the way. I use cop bats to infect cops, or detectives, and they turn into a pile of acid that will take away life and dwindle down shields. Other than just the basics, there's not much more I can say. Also, using the hotkeys for rooms can help get you to them faster to set up your monster.

How can you get the "die to the hands of" medals? I can't get either of them. I tried dying at the last boss, but it didn't work. Do I have to try that again, maybe because it didn't send, or is it something completely different?

I think it would be way more helpful if you let the author know about this in stead of putting it here, especially if it's a game (like this one) that is definitely worth playing 'till the very end. Still, it's nice to see you posting here again. =)

Mentioned before, I know.

This game can get pretty hard beyond wave 15. I found myself having to respec at least twice per wave, especially the waves with aliens in them. They're ridiculously high up, it'd be impossible to reach them without some diving and really high boost stat. On the bright side, it only takes one flick of the tail to destroy them and each one completely refills your HP.

Still grinding away on this fun game...

After having played through the whole game, I can say that there's a difficulty spike between waves 13-18. After that, it gets easy as you get enough points to upgrade your survival stats. Then it starts to get hard again as you approach wave 50.

Some pointers for in-game achievements:
-- The Steampunk Nightmare wave (42 iirc) is realistically the last chance you'll get at fulfilling the "sink 10 subs with mines" achievement. After that, good fking luck.
-- When you eat all the fish/birds in a wave, an icon will show up at the top right for each.
-- Each time you take a bite out of the moon, it moves higher. Might as well practice jumping, because some of the large alien ships fly as high as 240m.
-- You can actually regenerate health faster than you starve to death if you have a really high regeneration stat. Sadly, suffocation is still a deadly killer, so you'll need to rely on bonuses for the "lungs of steel" achievement.
-- You get a dozen upgrade points for getting all achievements! There's also a glitch in that if you do this, beat a wave, then reload the page, it will reward you with another dozen upgrade points. There's no point in doing this a fourth time though. Jerk.

What is the point of having medals if they don't actually give you experience points?

They're just there for people to collect for now. Or they can be used to give substance to your gaming skillz, or to boost your ego.

I can ask the same about post count. It's a pretty useless stat other than to show how much you've been posting, and maybe for moderator picking purposes.

It can change once the site redesign is released. Whether it will, we'll just have to wait and see.

I have a few questions and a guide for the last boss of final fantasy XFII:

How can you get the "die to the hands of" medals? I can't get either of them. I tried dying at the last boss, but it didn't work. Do I have to try that again, maybe because it didn't send, or is it something completely different?

Can anyone tell me where the last spell is please? It's number 6, after the anti-curse one.

This is a guide for the last boss in that game.

Die at the boss fight. You MUST play from the beginning and not via level select.

At the last switch room (whose dungeon looks like a fish skeleton in the overworld map), you'll notice a ledge at the top of the tree. There's a hidden alcove that contains a key. Use that key to open the door in the castle.

What would be the fastest way to grind out exp? It was cool and all that for an hour, but I'm not sure I really want to spend 1.5 more hours doing the same thing over and over again.

I was able to get all of them (aside from the boss) in the Free Ride mode, but I haven't played the game since the medals were approved, so I'm not sure that still applies or not.

It's the best you grind it out in free ride mode indeed. I only had half of the required exp after I got all the other medals, but after a short while in free ride mode with more traffic, more police cars etc. on I got it. It doesn't take as long as it seems.

Bit late in responding, I know, but I decided to pick up the game again after doing a shytton of other stuff. Works like a charm, assuming you get tons of stunts in. Or just constantly nitro into a tanker with another tanker.

.
Anywho, if I decide to do a gaming project, what kind of game would you guys like to see? Don't go crazy nuts on it though.

Do you mean a medal game, or another game like LoL or Skyrim.
