0 - 1 Minutes Gone

Stick with the Gatling Gun Tower for the price (allows you to build the maze you want at speed - and speed is what you need on a Time Trial map).

– Build the same maze up to the bridge that we did in The Frying Pan (level before this one).

– Upgrade the Gun Tower north of their entrance to a Spark Tower.

1 - 2 Minutes Gone

This level will largely play out like it did during the Survival version (‘The Frying Pan’), so if you’ve just completed that level, you’re fresh memory will help!

– Drop an Oil/Polymorph Tower overlooking their entrance.

– Upgrade the Gun Towers closest to the entrance as we’re looking to finish each round ASAP (to trigger the next one).

2 - 3 Minutes Gone

Make sure all surrounding towers have been fully upgraded to level three.

– Swap out the northern Gun Tower with a Slow Tower to keep the units pinned down near the entrance.

3 - 4 Minutes Gone

Once you’ve succeeded, how you place any additional towers is up to you. Go nuts!

– Swap out a few more Gun Towers for Spark Towers and you can have this in the bag with over a minute to go!

4 - 5 Minutes Gone

Now’s the time to go after that high-score! GO! GO! GO!

– This is purely a money grabbing exercise now, so when the map is filled with runners, drop an Airstrike for some additional bonus points.
