Beginner's Guide[edit | edit source]

  • Upon spawining, the game will grant invincibility for some seconds: use this time to look around.
  • Find an appropriate area for a base:
  • Zombies don't spawn until your Gold Stash is built, stack up on resource before starting your base.
    • Possibly in proximity to at least a tree and a rock (unlimited resource spots), ideally with the rock and tree touching.
    • Not too close to monster's stones, to avoid drawing their attention;
    • Unless in a party, far from other players, which may turn into enemies;
  • Gather some wood and stone to build a base by hitting trees and rocks with the axe.
  • Place the gold stash, which is free and unique, once ready to start building.
    • Consider that zombies will attack it as soon as night comes, so place it not too close to that moment.
  • To start producing gold, build gold mines around or nearby the gold stash.
    • Gold is used both for building upgrades and inside the shop (B or O keys) for tools and bonuses.
  • Protect the gold stash and the mines with towers and eventually walls.
  • Once gathered enough gold, upgrade the gold stash to unlock a new tier of all buildings:
    • For a price, any building can be then upgraded to that tier.
    • Higher tier buildings will have increased stats.
  • Remember that it is possible to sell any building but the gold stash, which therefore can't be moved.
  • Death will remove 25% of all resources, respawning the character at its gold stash.
  • The game is over when the gold stash is broken.

Base Management[edit | edit source]

  • When deciding where to place the gold stash, consider that the base will rise all around it.
  • It can be helpful to use resources in your early perimeter as zombies cannot move through them, and they cannot be destroyed.
  • Prioritize leveling up the gold stash and the mines to produce more gold as soon as possible, which is needed for all upgrades and bonuses.
  • It is good practice to maximize the level of all towers before upgrading the gold stash again, while walls and doors are a personal choice.
  • Read the tower stats carefully to understand where to place them range-wise.
  • Spending resources in rebuilding broken towers is a greater expense than a wall: defend them.
  • Symmetrical layouts are easier to manage.
  • For advanced strategies, see: Strategies.

Gold Management[edit | edit source]

  • The priority is to make gold as fast as possible, while zombie waves will keep increasing in difficulty.
  • The best way to maximize the production is to follow this upgrade order between tiers: gold stash > gold mines > towers > walls. Walls may be kept one tier below the other buildings until tier VI.
  • Spending gold in the shop should be done wisely and when needed, as it will slow down the base progress.

Pet Management[edit | edit source]

  • As soon as possible unlock a pet from the Shop.
  • To level up and empower the pet, let him kill monsters or harvest resources.
  • After a certain amount of levels, the pet can be evolved from the Stupid page.
  • It is possible to use a potion anytime to restore the pet's health.
