Wow, you are quick. I am stuck on my last medium one -- the 5 stage one. I think I know what has to be done, but I am having trouble getting the second specialist that I presume I need for the 4th wave. He is always 3 hps shy of leveling to the necessary level. It looks like I need to time my leveling better or something.

Are you trying to get 2 archers? I don't think it's possible. I spent ages trying to do that and then went for a different approach involving no warriors and some very careful timing on the levelling.

Yeah, I was trying for 2 archers. Even then it wasn't clear that they could clean up all the bats, but I have been soooooo....... close to getting 2! Literally 21/2 hps away on the second warrior, with the first having an abundance of extra hps. I thought I'd just try to hold off leveling the first one to get more hps to the second. Oh well.

SPOILER
















Try a couple of big damage blue mages instead of the warriors. I massively upgraded the mages to give them mana exploitation etc. and I think used a point for an extra life. I got my blue mages to level 7 I think, I also didn't upgrade my red mages until all the blue stuff was dead.









/SPOILER.

onto hardcore mode now. You keep your skill points from normal mode, this is so far making it quite easy.

Spoiler here too:














































I had already beaten it by the time I read your post, but I only used one blue mage. I only upgraded it to the needed level, although there was another level available before it was finished. I protected the first level with red mages on the front-side corners and middle squares, but only upgraded the corners and added red mages to the rear corners as needed so as not to lose on the first round. For the final run, I just added red mages to all rear squares on the exit side, even razing squares to maximize the number of mages. Not sure the razing was necessary, though.

I only used the 4 initial mages. Good to see there are different techniques that work though.

I wasn't sure how strong the absorb effect would be on the last guy, so I didn't want to waste firepower and have it essentially absorbed by the actions of the blue mage. So I set them up to hit after the absorb effect was ended.

I'm working on the bridge map now (my last medium one). Three failed attempts so far

I came back to that one once I had a lot more skill points. Some of the hard ones aren't as hard as that.

Completed. Hardcore mode is much easier than standard mode. You start with loads of skills and the techniques you used for the levels on medium seem to work just as well.

There's fair bit of strategy in this. I had a lot of trouble with the first medium map I did, but worked it out. Still working through the medium maps.
This sucks. I'm stuck at the medium level, level 16 and 17 are killing me.

the sucky ones.

Up to level 15, it's pretty much all fire, then a level cold, then a level physical. I went from 20 lives to 1 in 2 levels, and one flying bastard in the next one managed to get through and finish me off.

How do you unlock the advanced units anyway?

5 wave spoiler:















Cripple works well. I put 4 unupgraded mages up top and two warriors in the middle (and an extra mage at the bottom) I upgraded the warriors to the first armor piercing level for wave three and the two topmost mages were fire/cripple. I got through the 4th wave with one archer. I don't think absorb/regen even factors in if you use cripple, they're that weak.

I spent all my skills in the general tree for purchase discounts, extra life, and experience bonus.

You'll find the game gets a bit easier once you discover the skill tree.

Finished last week. Got a little bug-eyed at first at the final boss until I realized what was going on.
