0 - 1 Minutes Gone

This will be one of the easiest three stars you’ll get in the game.

– Drop an Ice Tower down by the short bridge overlooking the trench entrance on the left and place a Gatling Gun Tower beside it.

– Upgrade this tower then use the extra money to set up two more Gatling Towers so they’re facing the first turn in the trench.

– It doesn’t matter if any runners get through, you’ll get three stars on this super easily, so just focus on setting down more towers.

– Fully upgrade the Ice Tower and then swap the first Gatling Gun for a Spark Tower. Now drop another Ice Tower opposite the Spark Tower to maximise the damage.

1 - 2 Minutes Gone

It’s all about lining the sides of the trench with Ice Towers and Spark Towers to do as much damage as quickly as possible.

– Max out all towers along this trench before placing a Spark Tower at the centre of the bridged loop (to pick up a few more kills).

2 - 3 Minutes Gone

Just after the second minute has passed, you should be successful! Hooray! (See, we told you this one was easy).

– This leaves a nice chunk of time to mess around and rack up as many more kills as possible.

3 - 4 Minutes Gone

– Keep filling up the outside of the trench walls and you should be racking up even more kills!

4 - 5 Minutes Gone

If you’re gunning after a high score, then it’s worth bringing in a whole load of items and dropping them in the trench section when the units are bunched up. By this point you should have a good amount of coins anyway. Go nuts!

– Got an Airstrike ready? Then wait for the screen to be packed full of units and then hit them with it for a nice boost to your final tally. A nice and simple three stars.
