I sorta like the original Wintermaul-style TD more where essentially there's an entry point and and exit point and it's a straight line between them and you built towers in such a way as to redirect traffic to make it take the longest possible time for them to get from point A to point B, usually a stacking zig-zag. You actually put your towers IN their path and change how they move, not just next to their path. Maybe there'll be more of this later on in the game (it said in the instructions that if you completely block their path they'll destroy your towers, so that sounds promising).

Don't worry there are a number of levels just as you describe where you are dictating path. No destroying towers that I'm aware of, they will just walk through them if they have no other clear path.

Hell, I never had too much of a problem with the shape their path levels in the main campaign but the bonus add-on missions are so $*#*(ing complicated in that respect that I haven't even finished most of them.

the basic jist of that one is to completely surround the base except for the top left part and make them enter there. Have a couple temporals and maybe a command post maxed for increased resources....if you do the surround method I think it's pretty straight forward....

that was my first idea, i tried two or three times with that strat... it's always that wave of shield guys (right before turtles and bashers) that get me, and i have 90% gun and cannon, which is supposed to be best against shields.

i had it so that everyone had to cross a half circle, and then back (basically a full map rotation) before they could exit.... same story.

ring the whole thing with guns, get the ones near the entrance and on the left side maxed out pretty quick, then have an entire line of cannons on the right side

I
G T
X G G G G C
X G G C
X G G C
X G G C
X T G G G G C


Not exactly to scale with placement and actual # of weapons, but you get the idea. It will work.

Crap, well, it doesn't keep my formatting with spaces. @*$%!

shift the guns and cannons over to the right to imagine the cores in the middle.

looks easy enough, and not too much different than what i was doing.... seems like he wasted way too much on missile towers though.

Never hurts to be overprepared with Missle towers. I learned this the hard way on wave 28...once.

Never again!

Nah, too many missile towers for this map. They have to make two passes by the tower before they go to the base. *shrug*

Can't wait for the new maps though, that's awesome!

Any opinions on the first pair?

The first map was pretty challenging for me but I was able to get a gold medal (with many points to spare) on the open one first try.

Definitely worth the price. I just wish there were more maps coming. I would gladly have paid $15 for 20 new maps.

This is unreal. Tons of PC games that are also out for XBLA have gotten Portal themed DLC (like Bastian and Dungeon Defenders, among others I am forgetting) but this is the first time that it has made it the 360 as well. 8 new missions for 5 bucks and a cameo by Glados coming in two weeks!

Well, it looks like 400 MS points that is going to be well spent. Love defense grid, and I will have to get this expansion.

AWESOME!!!

Considering that craptacular, rehashed, tired, worn-out CoD map packs are a zillion dollars each in points, this is an absolute STEAL. Thanks for the update. Can't wait...LOVE this game!

Well, I tried the demo of this yesterday, and after the first level, I bought the game. It's that good. I played through the entire Awakening campaign, and enjoyed it, but I still got to go back and play some over again to get higher medals. Also, I can't wait to try out some of the challenge modes, especially the grinder ones.

Did anyone else find the last level way too easy? I just blocked one way and made them merge and I had no problem at all taking them down. The only ones to make it to my core were the bosses, but they didn't last long afterward.

Resurrecting this old thread - I picked this up via Games for Gold, thoroughly enjoying it. I grabbed DLC map packs 1-4, but they're not showing up on the list. It still just shows Awakening and Borderlands. Any ideas?

maybe try re-downloading the DLCs. If tha doesn't work, clear your hard drive cache - Settings - Storage - Hard drive - clear cache. If that doesn't work, wipe the game from the hard drive and the dlcs and then redownload them all together prior to loading up the game...

It's a great game, but uber glitchy. I still never got the last cheevo for You Monster, even though I should have. Thanks for charging a fortune for patches, Microsoft! mad.gifmad.gifmad.gif

Well I've cleared the cache and still no luck. In the meantime I finished all the challenge modes of the Awakening and Borderlands maps. I'll try deleting and re-downloading everything next.

I deleted the game and DLC, redownloaded everything at once, and now the new ones show up. That seems to be the trick.
