Fun stategic variety.

I liked finding different combination that worked well together. The later levels are hard enough to make even the cheapest strats still kinda fun (since you can effectively lose on draws). I never figured out how to make the satellite work right.

Maybe others can keep track of more than I can, but I wasn't able to use more than one turret at a time effectively. If you add some automation options, then you could scale the rest of the difficulty up a lot higher in later levels. (I want a turret that will launch its nukes as they prep).

I thought that shields and nukes balanced out pretty well. Being able to equip two time-delay shields is a little cheap, but I think it would have been too hard for me without it. Maybe if the damage shield could upgrade to take any real punishment you could ban two time shields, or if the max time use on the time shields was a second or two slower. Still, I wasn't coordinated enough to keep shields up on more then one bunker at a time.

I think that any time people are talking about fine balancing points, the game is a win.

Way to difficult!

It's really easy at first, but the enemies multiply and upgrade way too fast.

Okay

The concept is cute, but a lot of the weapons and defenses are cheesy as hell. The nuke, for instance, is basically an "I Win" button for whoever uses it. The things that lower terrain are super-annoying, and the computer doesn't seem to know how to use them correctly--more than once it used it to put one of my bunkers in an invulnerable position (usually when it vastly outnumbered me). Maybe it just screwed up because of the ever-warbling terrain. That was probably the most annoying thing--shots were flying everywhere because the BUNKERS were warbling everywhere.

I beat the campaign mode, but doubt I'll play any more.

i hate other reviewers in newgrounds

this game was a lot of fun and much like you said it starts easy but then gets harder. however, it isnt impossible to beat. you almost make it too easy for the fact that the right strategy and quick hand will cause victory. PLUS, you give cash for losses and unlimited continues.

newgrounds idiots want to blame a game maker for program not working in their config. SCREW YOU! upgrade f**kers! also, dont give low rating cuz you arent good at games.

anyway, great job. simple, but good graphics and gameplay. music is cool. i look forward to updated versions.

MY GUIDE FOR WINNING
-------------------------------
for the record, my guide to winning is to max out base weapon ASAP. next, save up for the 2nd shield. max that out.

next, buy super thumper and max out as you go along.

as you fire on other enemies, switch to thumper when loaded and strike, then back to regular gun. you can get two rounds of this in which kills an enemy or two and then use shield (it'll be charged by then). continue attacks this way.

as boards get harder, buy new bunkers and do same weapon lineup. when all three bunkers are done, buy mini nukes, cuz they load faster.

i also HIGHLY recommend EMP after this to destroy any incoming fire and nukes (it works really fast).

the game is not hard at all with this combo. you may run outta time and draw on some boards, but you will BARELY lose.

Meh.

Really, not a good game. No movement, no real strategy, and the time limit was just a pain. The upgrades all canceled each other out (what good is a nuke if your opponent just nullifies it?)
Honestly, the only good weapon was the starting weapon. Quite frankly, I'm disappointed Jmtb02. I've come to expect better.
Looks really pretty though, so that's a bonus. (^.^)=b
