Seriously, Mission 23 on Invasion is irritating the hell out of me. I always lose at least 2 crystals. How did you guys do it? Any hints?

first, i'll define the areas. row 1, then the crystals, then row 2 then row 3. each row has 4 sections i believe.

so i started with a mini gun in row 1 section 1, a cannon in row 1 section two, and then after getting a few more resources, a cannon in row 2 section 1. the trick i found was that you need to get one unit in each of the sections in row 1 so that your cannons in row 2 can shoot the raiders. I did place a slow tower in row 1 section 3 or 4 rather quickly, and focused on building cannons in row 2. I focused on upgrading everything in row 2 first, then row 3. i only upgraded a couple things in row 1.

in the end, i had one fully upgraded slow tower in each row and 2 or 3 mortars total. it took me 4 or 5 tries to save all 20.

I have still not gotten past wave 7 with all 20 crystals intact. I swear I have tried every conceivable formulation of towers. Quite a challenge. I will try upgrading cannons; that's something that I felt was too much of a luxury for this level but I will try anything at this point.

Alright, I did it finally, saved all 20 crystals. Here's how.

Spoiler alert - seriously, you should just do it yourself. This is a fun game and if you're on 23 you're about to run out of game. Thus you should not read any further and just keep trying until you get it.

Note: It gets WAAAAY easier on about wave 12. I have no idea why. The first boss is at wave 15. Two bosses on wave 19. After wave 12 (approximately) I don't think a single raider got to the bottom row, and very few even got to the end of the first row. I had hundreds of unused resources several times.

Three rows, each with three sets of three squares. I indicate below what I built in order as you're looking at the screen.

M = mini gun
F = flame tower
C = cannon
S = slow (freeze) tower

MMF MMM FMM
CCS CCC SCC
MCC FSF CCM

Think I have a thing for symmetry? :)

I upgraded the cool towers to freeze towers first because that's always my first upgrade. Then I upgraded the cannons in the second row and the flame towers in the first row.

When bosses showed up I recycled mini guns and put lasers in two places on the top row so that the whole top row would be a little more useful.

LawHawk ....what difficulty are you doing this on? Did this work for you on Raidpocalypse?

Passed towergeddon with 18 crystals. Think I'm onto something. Has anyone finished on Raid with 20 crystals? This level is seriously driving me nuts. I will finish this with 20 crystals on raidpocalypse
