Increasing difficulty levels

There are many rounds in this game, so the difficulty levels also increase through the rounds. If you are a newbie, you also still easily pass the first rounds. However, your skills have to be improved to pass the later levels. This makes the game more challenging and players won't be bored with too easy challenges.

Bloons Tower Defense battles

Your enemies in this game aren't monsters or humans. They are balloons called bloons. You can see an entrance at the end of a road which needs your protection. If many bloons enter this entrance, the game will end immediately. Therefore, the battles of this game need your careful preparation.

Destroy all bloons

Remember that balloons are the danger in this game. You don't have weapons such as swords or guns but you can use the tower to break the bloons. You can get one coin after destroying one balloon. Then, you can use the coins you get to purchase new towers.

Upgrade your towers

Many new balloons with new power will appear in the later rounds. If you just set up the original tower to prevent them, it's easy to lose this game. Therefore, you need to upgrade your towers to enhance your team's power. You can raise the speed and range of each tower with coins. From that, the tower can shoot a target from a far distance and their damage also increases.

Follow the statistics on the screen

Let's look at the statistics on the right corners of the screen. You can see your lives, money, and rounds. You can know whether you have enough money to buy new towers or upgrade the old tower, and how many lives you have left. If the lives reach 0, you will lose this game. If one bloon enters your base, you will lose one life.

Understand the objects in Bloons Tower Defense

This game only has balloons and towers. Your mission is to prevent these balloons from flying into the entrance. To complete the mission, you should know the features of each bloon and tower.

Bloons Tower Defense bloons

The colors are not only decorative but also used to distinguish different types of bloons. Knowing the features of the bloons will make the game easier. You will know which towers to use to destroy them. So, don't skip the following instructions.

  • Red Bloons: This is the weakest type and can be defeated with just one bullet. They will appear mainly in the first levels.
  • Blue bloons: This type of bloon contains a red bloon inside them. So, when you destroy a blue bloon, a red bloon will appear.
  • Yellow bloons: The speed of these bloons is the fastest. Sometimes, your towers won't be able to hit them. In yellow bloons, there are blue bloons and red bloons.
  • Black and white bloons: They are not as fast as yellow bloons but they are the most difficult to deal with. Their size is quite small, so hitting them will be difficult for single-target towers. They will fly and hide behind larger bloons. Even though they are tiny in size, these white and black bloons contain 3 types of bloons (red, blue and yellow).

Bloons Tower Defense Towers

After distinguishing the bloons, now you need to learn the weak and strong points of the towers in this game. From there, you will have appropriate choices to complete the tasks in this game.

  • Dart Tower: It cost 250. These towers can shoot a single dart. You can upgrade them to piercing darts and long-range darts. These towers are the cheapest but they're really useful.
  • Tack Tower: These towers cost 400. These towers can shoot a volley of tacks in 8 directions. However, their shooting speed isn't as fast as dart towers.
  • Ice Tower: They cost 850. These towers don't have damage but they can freeze nearby bloons. Frozen bloons are immune to darts and tacks, but bombs will destroy them.
  • Bomb Tower: You need to pay 900 coins to purchase a bomb tower. They can launch a bomb that explodes on impact. However, their shooting speed is really slow although its damage is impressive. Therefore, you should consider before setting up these towers.
  • Super Monkey: They're the most expensive towers but they're worth that cost. Super Monkey shoots a continuous stream of darts and can mow down even the fastest and most stubborn bloons.

Strategies to win Bloons Tower Defense

A game that requires skill and intelligence, clever strategies are also extremely important. Protect your tower from dangerous bloons. Next, I will give some strategies of some professional gamers. Follow these strategies if you are a newbie.

Understand the terrain in the game

To place the towers properly, you should take some time to study the map. Bloons only move in one path. This road will have sections next to each other. Try to find positions where the tower can do the most damage. If you have enough money, you can even place a tower along the way. Rest assured that these bloons cannot attack your tower.

Balance your defense

As you know, bloons will be divided into many types. So, you need different towers to handle different types of bloons. Always remember the features of the towers to combine them effectively. For example, you should place a bomb tower close to an ice tower to cause the most damage. Because only bombs can destroy frozen bloons. Placing only one type of tower is not recommended.

Upgrade wisely

Upgrading is necessary, but it will be most effective when you know how to choose a low building to upgrade. Upgrading the random tower is not recommended. Focus on upgrading towers located in key areas or with high rates of fire. However, you also need to prioritize upgrades that are appropriate for the bloon wave you are facing.
