It's in the "New" category. After they've been in "New" for a few days I move them where I think they should go.

I could do better.

Did you actually complete all waves? I did, but I let more through than I would have liked.

I really don't care for the mario defense one. I just don't get it.

Yup, completed it twice. How the hell did you get nearly 100 000 points higher than ob and me? I let twenty or so in.

The aiming in Mario sucks, especially from Luigi.

Might have to do with how many towers you have, what type of towers you have.

I let no balloons past on that new high score. Mostly those pink/multi tack towers and super monkeys.

It would be interesting to see what other tower combinations get in scoring.

Oh, I get it.

I know I can do it with one less super monkey. I just have to time my builds and get my positions right. I think I might have it now, but not going to play again today.

At least I have the current high score.

I improved my score quite a bit, but I think I let 9 or so get through. One wave really caught me short.

lots of room for improvement!

I will try and beat that score but probably not today.

And something else. Where I put the tack towers, there is no reason to upgrade the range. And same with the super monkeys.

And I think that there is still something more to the scoring that I haven't figured out. I may have to start taking notes to improve much.

If you finish a mission in the penguin one, it gives a breakdown of the score.

I know. I only improve speed. My tack tower setup is pretty awesome, though I'm still experimenting. There is one situation where I think a range-increased tack tower might be appropriate. In a stack of three at the first turn. It slows down the fast "bloons" right at the beginning so that super monkeys have the time to clean them up. Having a stack of three towers that still hit around the full turn will maximize this.

I also don't improve my basic dart towers and I sell them as soon as they go obsolete.

In my top scoring game, I built a fourth super monkey because I was afraid of "bloons" getting past, but I don't think that was necessary.

All in all, I think I can get by with 7 tack towers and 3 super monkeys.

Anyone else have a completely different build they are experimenting with? Is anyone else putting this much thought into this particular game?

I panic and put tack towers and monkeys down because I think I'll be overrun. And I wind up putting them near the end, where they don't do much good. So, I'm still experimenting.

My top score so far, I had two super monkeys, both with the range enhancement, and two bomb cannons along with way too many tack towers.

cut back on the tack towers
I put one in the first curve but may stop doing that.
I was putting four in the first U(which is upside down) so they would hit on three sides.
Now I'm trying two there and one in the second U (which is sideways).

If you put dart towers in the U's along the left side and fully upgrade them then that should do until you can get a super monkey. And make sure the super monkey covers the most path possible.

I don't upgrade the super monkeys nor add range to the tack towers.
Although I might experiment with adding range to one super monkey to see if I can do with one less. I had four last time.

My top score is on 8 tack towers and four super monkeys. Two dart towers placed early, then sold. My tack towers are upgraded in speed only, my super monkeys not upgraded at all.

My tack towers are practically on top of each other at the first two u-bends, right on the end and end-to-end so that they both hit all three sides and are centered enough that only one tack in their spread doesn't reach the path. You can do it with 3 at each u-bend, but you have to upgrade tack range.

I have gotten by on 3 super monkeys, with additional tack towers, but my score was less, and balloons got by.

I'm just trying to get super monkey placement right to eliminate one.

I think upgrading one super monkey placed just right might eliminate one of the others.

That's the only way I've been able to complete (though I still let about 20 get through early on).

I was trying with bombs earlier and no luck, I found I need to keep building up the multi-tack shooters until I have about a dozen of them with full upgrades, then I save for the super monkey.

eta: You guys are doing it with far fewer tack towers than me.

I like having 8-9 in the first U then 2 more at the 2nd. I find the cluster of 8-9 really prevents the fast bloons from getting by until I've saved up for the SuperMonkey.


eta2: Only 2 supermonkeys so I had lots of cash left over at the end.

Does everyone get a score of 334125 when they stop all balloons?
I just wrote it down, and wrote down how much cash I had.
Guess what! my final score was that plus the cash left over.

Yeah, I think every bloon you pop is worth 5 points. Cash left over AFTER the last round is added to the final score.

My new record, I let 2 bloons get by, but I sold everything. It's beatable but timing is important.
