Level 220

Poison Gas slows them down; if they get hit multiple times with Poison Gas, they almost stop (long enough to get hit with nuke after nuke)

I've been kind of wondering what happened to you, Flint. And now I know.

Level 312

The sad thing is, I wasted thousands of dollars at the end of this game, expecting to die at any moment (total money spent is a factor in your score, so you try to finish with very little money) ... the problem was, the game kept going, so I kept piddling away small amounts of money on useless "rate of fire" etc. And for a while I was thinking "my next goal should be to get to level 300 . . . naaahhhh no way I can get to 300" but then I did. The other thing was, I was afraid my browser would crash before I could finish the game. I was in "low quality" graphics for about a hundred levels.

Cool, haven't played the new version. What are those yellow things?

btw: You should place your blue turrets so that the road is just outside their range. That way, the rocket launcher is the only turret that fires and you get the maximum combo attacks possible (for each two blue turrets, you get a nuke launched every eight seconds). I'm just sayin' ...

Don't know what they're called. They shhot lightening bolts - if they don't kill, they slow enemies down, like poison gas.

Thanks for the tip.

I just checked Onslaught recently, and they've added a feature where you can design your own map.

BTW Spexx, I like how you blacked out every tab but Labrat's Ass.

I haven't had too much time to play with this, but this is my most successful map yet. They go around in a very tight circle for like 20 revolutions and then they go off to the base. It lets you target one spot and keep hitting all of them at once, over and over again.

The Black Hole will keep you alive, but you don't earn any dollars for what it sucks up. In this game, I reached level 207, but my kills were 1543 - I didn't kill anything after level 154. It got kinda boring. I don't think the Black Hole is useful.

Interesting. I hadn't heard of a black hole, so I'm trying it out. Using the custom map I made in the post above, I can't die. I'm up to wave 1,044. This will go on forever. I can't die. I click like crazy to sent multiple waves at once, and it kills them all. I can't die.

But you don't get credit for them, so it doesn't matter.

Anything that kills enemies, without rewarding you, will quickly turn against you;
...as the enemies advance and grow stronger, you haven't had the resources to prepare.

You have to stay ahead, always preparing for the future.
