Damnit, Destructor!  I'm supposed to be playing Heavy Rain.

Seriously, this is a great game.  Really addictive and well-balanced.  I expect one of the big consoles to snatch it up for their download service.

And your tip of the day if you didn't realize it already - you need to destroy cities (as in kill everybody in a city) to open up more of the world. Until then, you can happily repeat stages to gain more cash.

Glad to take away your Wednesday. biggrin

Yeah, that's where the good balance comes in.  You don't want to destroy a city too early because it stops being a source of revenue, but you don't even have a chance of that until you power up.  Eventually, you'll be powerful enough that there's no way you can't destroy that city.

No joke, my PS3 is on the Heavy Rain menu, and I've put at least 45 minutes into this thing.

238 days. Do you have to destroy the towns to finish? If not I spent a lot of time doing that. If so, then I guess I suck.

I've spent a crapload of time building up revenue before destroying towns.  I guarantee you I'll be longer than that.

Go to America as soon as possible.  Most of the special undead are found there and they make dealing with armed people much easier.

I've been saving America for last.

I do have three special undead already, though.

Strange, I think I found all but two in America.  The Tank and the Boomer.  Pretty sure Greenland is the last location no matter what though.  Also, pretty sure the locations don't scale so if you save USA for last it will be really easy.

The locations are probably random, then, since I found the Tank, Ranald, MJ and the Colonel elsewhere.

ok, it gets really freaking annoying when all your zombies decide to head in the opposite direction of the last survivor on a map.

well, got the 'zombie world' achievement in 212 days.  I found the best way is to focus your outbreaks on the edges of the maps, once the zombies overtake those it's pretty much game over for that city.  I also pumped points into Infection Chance right away.

yeah, most of the times I was out to either forgetting to replenish them or using them to take out units that were causing too much damage.

First time through, 185 days and I got all the bonuses except the Mad Scientist.

Second time, going for speed, 160 days with all the bonuses except Mad Scientist.  I have an idea how to get that one, but it won't be the fastest number of days.

Mad Scientist involves getting all of the upgrades. Not sure how that works in the world edition, as I have infection chance up to 102% and could still make it more.

All of the upgrades go to 25 - so yeah, infection rate is something like 110% at the end.  It was amazing how fast zombies got made at that level though.   eek icon_lol
