Check out these tips to help you get far in the new mobile game, War Tortoise!
War Tortoise is a mobile game available for iOS and Android that plays like a mix between shooter, tower defense, and rogue-like games. This strangely addictive game gets pretty deep the more you play it, and there are things that aren't obvious or even known by simply playing.
I'm going to help you by explaining all you need to know and provide some tips that will have you blasting through to higher waves!
You start with an armored tortoise that shoots a machine gun.
As you destroy enemies and complete waves, you gain money and advance to new levels.
Once you make it past level 5 the first time, you can select Next Generation and get access to auto-battle.
Next Generation starts you over at the beginning, but you keep any perks you got previously. You also get a damage boost each Next Generation. Think of it as getting better each time you die at a certain time.
You also get a permanent bonus to your starting money each time you do next generation.
There are 2 methods to keep in mind when choosing what to build first. The general idea remains the same, but the very first thing you build is different depending on how many generations you have done.
This is for when you are new to the game and only have a few generations, or even your first time through.
This is for when you have done multiple generations, like 10 or more, and have multiple perks and starting money.
Mining Tower - After you've been playing a while and unlock higher level support, they cost tons of money. You should be strong by now and can easily solo everything in the first few levels with only the stock auto-battle.
Lower cost Support Units - I like to get some support units up early because they help the most in the long run. I usually go for Gun Towers or Bumblebee Drones first, since they have a long range.
Machine Gun and Gun Carriage secondary weapon - You still want to power up your tortoise and the gun carriage adds a lot.
Health and Armor for your tortoise - You still want damage the most, but as you get into higher waves, you will die instantly if you don't upgrade your health and armor.
Howitzer - This does incredible damage and even though the sniper is decent, I generally kill most things with just machine gun and support at higher generations. This is used for when I really need to kill something quickly, then go back to normal shooting.
Higher Cost Support - This is when I start to get the support that costs a lot, like the Sparrow Squadron and Biggin' Mouse Squad.
At the beginning, I suggest going to next generation after you reach the goal. You can see the goal by going to the buy menu and looking at the top middle of the screen.
When you get to the goal level, you get 2 of the red star currencies, which can be used to buy a new perk, or saved for something in the shop.
If you happen to die multiple times, the time it takes to try again keeps going up. I usually go to next generation after a couple deaths unless I'm close to the next goal.
These are more of a preference, but I would say the most important perk is Support damage. This increases the damage of all of your support, which already does much more damage for you and it counts for everyone. Here are a few others to watch for:
This is the general help section and can save you time and money in the long run.
