Essential Stats in Line Tower Wars
Below are the 3 stats you need to pay attention. The first is the cash/money that you have in hand.
Money/Cash allows you to build/upgrade towers in Round 1 or buy creeps in Round 2.
The gold bar represents the income per turn which can only increase if you hire creep/monster in Round 2.
The heart symbol represents your total life. If you have zero life, you will lose the game.
How to setup your maze and build towers in Line Tower Wars
In Round 1, you can invest/spend some cash on building towers. Its not necessary to spend all as stated in
the game. There are 3 towers to choose from: Shredder, Launcher and Hammer. Each are unique.
Shredder – Fast attack speed, low range. [$50 , Damage +1 , Range 8]
Launcher – Slow attack speed, large range. [$100 , Damage +2 , Range 40]
Hammer – Average attack speed, average range. [$200 , Damage +4 , Range 10]
Select either Shredder/Launcher/Hammer and click on the empty space to build your tower.
You can setup your path by clicking on the empty space. The empty box is replaced with plus-circle symbol.
It is free to build those path but it does not attack enemy. To build towers on plus-circle symbol, simply
select one of the towers you want to build [Shredder/Launcher/Hammer] and click the plus-circle symbol
twice. To upgrade a particular tower, use your mouse and click it. You can’t sell towers but remove all
towers from your maze by blocking the enemy entrance/exit/path using the plus-circle symbol!
How to buy/hire creeps in Line of Towers?
After you have completed setting up your maze and purchasing towers, press SPACEBAR to go to Round 2.
In Round 2, you have the opportunity to spend your extra cash on creeps. These creeps will increase
your money income per turn. Your creep is also capable of stealing neighbor life if they manage to escape
enemy’s maze without dying and can continue to steal life as many time as possible before they die.
Friendly creep will only travel through enemy maze. You have the option to buy high level monster to endure
longer to steal more life or spend on many low level monster to obtain more cash in return [increase income].
Line Tower Wars Walkthrough – L Maze Hammer Strategy
This strategy works on any difficulty if its possible to kill at least a few enemies to generate sufficient cash,
which would be invested on stronger defense. The stronger your defense, you will stop enemies creep from
stealing life from your base and the creep killed will provide you with more cash/money. If your maze is able to prevent enemy creep from escaping, you can invest your money into friendly creep to recover/steal some life from neighboring maze and increase your income.
Hints/Tips for Line Tower wars
To steal more life, you can opt for friendly creep with higher speed [faster movement]. The faster they move, they will spend less time taking hits from enemy towers within a single maze. In short, it will allow them to endure several maze to steal more life. Monster with speed 15, 48, 80, 96 are fast runners!
To generate more income, spend on lower level creep. They tend to generate a little more cash then higher level creep. Income is affected by the number of friendly monster purchased only.
Game Main Menu Screen
Creative introduction screen but difficult to find the button to start game.
Difficult to set the difficulty bar. Mouse cursor could not grab the bar to move it along the difficulty bar.
Does not have text box to set the exact percentage or arrow keys for user to press to increase/decrease.
The 3 icons : money symbol, gold bar and heart shape.
Some icons are self-explanatory such as heart represents base life, money is for spending on towers.
But what about gold bar? No description about what it is, how to increase it, is it good/bad indicator. etc
Player is confused on which is his base since there are 5 colors.
Do the players have the option to select any 1 of the 5 colors or is it already pre-determined?
Are they allowed to customize the maze color to suit their needs?
Where is the entrance and exit of the creep?
Where is the start button?
Where is the tower icon? Is it the little buttons with pictures or the 3 words: hammer/shredder/launcher?
There is no indicator whether the tower is being selected because usually it has the circle range with red
to indicate unable to place within that location, and green is available space to build your tower.
How to sell towers? Would players be penalized for placing wrongly?
Blocking the path of the maze will automatically trigger the game to clear all your towers.
This makes players frustrated as they need to rebuild all their towers back.
What if player want to remove 1 tower? This leads to clearing the whole maze again…
When the player send creep? What does it mean by round 1 and round 2? This is not common in most tower
defense games, where player have either 1 scene to place towers or none at all, where enemy creeps just
keep pouring in.
Small Maze and bright maze color
This leads to eye strain for most players because the creep is way too small, and it lacks the Health bar
above them to know how much health. Also, small maze does not allow much creativity in building different
types of maze. This prevents creative mazes to be build.
Some are not challenging at all. They just use the same strategy, either sending creeps without building
defense, or some just build defense and send little creeps.
Bored waiting game
Players could not do anything else but to watch for all creeps to die before they can start building things.
Unable to speed up game
Tried speeding up the game but does not make any faster.
