The standard strategy for any Tower Defense game is to stack your forces near the entrance with over-lapping fields of fire and mixed types. This approach actually works very well with this game.

Hard Difficulty Gameplay

The tactic used here was the following:

  1. Start out by building 2-3 Castle Towers
  2. Upgrade the Castle Towers at least twice, then get 1-2 extra Castle Towers out (2 if you only placed 2 initially)
  3. Upgrade the newer Castle Tower(s) twice, then focus on getting each the third upgrade
  4. If you find you are falling a bit behind or coming close with the waves, put out one Mushroom Tower near the beginning curve, but do not waste money upgrading it
  5. Once you have all Castle Towers at their third upgrade, focus on getting their final upgrade
  6. The Mushroom Tower close near the final curve in the path pictured was placed there in wave 49, and ended up being un-needed
