Kingdom Rush Upgrades
There are 4 basic towers to use. As mentioned they can be upgraded to become more powerful and have better chances of defeating the enemies. Click the tower and there will be an “up” icon, which gives you the option to upgrade. Using towers and upgrading them cost coins. Place the right towers on the correct positions to prevent enemies from getting through them. The 4 towers are the archer, barracks, dwarven bombard and mages tower.
The archer tower can be upgraded to sharpshooter tower, marksmen tower, ranger hideout and musketeer. The mages tower can be upgraded to adept tower, wizard tower, arcane wizard and sorcerer mage. The dwarven bombard tower can be upgraded to dwarven artillery, dwarven howitzer, 500mm Big Bertha and Tesla X104. The barracks can be upgraded to footmen barracks, knights barracks, holy order and barbarian hall. For enemies that move fast but are not that strong, it’s better to have multiple towers to prevent them from getting through.
For strong enemies that move slow, the towers should be upgraded for higher damage attack. But since there could be a mix of both, upgrade towers that will damage the stronger enemies and additional long range towers like archer tower for the fast ones. Take advantage of the summon reinforcements and meteor spell abilities as they do not cost any coins. They are useful for blocking, as well as causing damage to the opponents. Summon reinforcements has 10 seconds cool down time while the meteor spell has 80 seconds. Use the summon reinforcements ability as soon as it is available to increase the number of soldiers that will block the enemies. It’s best to use the meteor spell on a huge number of enemies and damage more of them. Use it wisely as it takes more than a minute before it will be available again.
