Bloons TD 4 for iPad - some hints
A few hints as I've made my way through a bunch of the levels of Bloons TD 4 on the iPad:
- Boomerang monkeys simply don't aim correctly; at least not like on the Flash version. Don't use them until later rounds, where you can immediately update them to lightsaber mode for cracking ceramic bloons.
- As with previous versions, almost all levels benefit from having a lot of banana farms. Get 'em early, and build them up steadily.
- On some of the levels that have really short tracks, get glue monkeys in place early. However, don't do anything else until you are able to upgrade them to Soak mode; they are almost useless without it.
- Whenever a level allows it (meaning, any level with water), use as many monkey buccaneers as possible. When upgraded, they smear out a lot of the bloons, and their crow's nest upgrade really helps when camouflage bloons appear.
OK, now back to your regular programming...
