Is the best place for top medal point users... Its pretty comprehensive and updates weekly. Only posting the link because you forgot to and the actual high scores table completely different now... its at a top 200 rather than top 50 etc
still nice work putting this stuff together

smooth...

Everything in the game is very well polished. nice graphics, reasonable response from car yadda yadda yadda... However, having beaten all levels (including hard mode) and getting the secret medal, I accidentally refreshed the page and found that Not only had I not recieved the medals for hard mode or the 100!!!!!! point secret, but also all of my level/garage data had been wiped. Thats at least an hour of work assuming that you dont mess up EVER. Then to upgrade (assuming that you get 3 upgrades by the time you beat the last level on hard mode, its AT LEAST an hour and a half of perfect grinding for a 10 point medal... wtf? In contrast most time related medals on here only require you to play for half an hour for the same 10 point medal... if this was based just on gameplay though, very nice job :D

Development

Hi,
First of all I would like to commend you on smooth graphics, decent artwork, and a fairly solid game idea. However, there are a few little pieces which seriously made game-play a pain for me. 1) When using magic, you set the hot-key to ctrl instead of making it customizable or another letter. So, in the heat of battle when i want to utilize the wizards I cant hot-key for a spell click. Instead I get a pop-up window which wants to edit my flash settings. This is a serious flaw in you game design because you have set up at least 1/3 of the players weaponry in a way which cannot easily be used. Now it may be because I'm running a specific web browser or it may be because I'm using a mac... but something that simple shouldn't make a difference. 2) In the miscellaneous achievements section there's an achievement which says "complete a level with 100%." The question is... 100% of what? That achievement is unbelievably vague. Is it 100% gold collected? 100% mouse click accuracy? etc... I have, (as far as i know) completed the first level perfectly before and still have not received that achievement. So please clarify what the requirements for that achievement are. 3) There is another achievement which requires submitting your score. This is also horribly vague... I have looked and looked and cannot see any SIMPLE way to submit my score. Submitting a score SHOULD be simple. Enough said.

In conclusion, this is an excellent game, but 4 stars are knocked off. 1 for each point mentioned above, and also another star taken off because points number 2 and 3 directly effect a 100 point medal. (aka because there is no simple or standardized way to submit a score or "complete a level with 100%" most people regardless of how skilled they are at your game will have their experience lessened if they are playing for medals due to simple error in communication)

Epic War 4 Epic War 4

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

stunning

The artwork in this game is absolutely amazing. I disagree with other users about the difficultly level though. Ive whipped through all the epic levels quite easily after maxing out: goblins, bull men, orangutans, epic cannon, mighty gaurdian, dwarf engineer, alter, kara the slayer, popo the epic dwarf, simon the magician and shield. You dont even need to have all of those maxed out. All you really need is shield and alter maxed out. The technique is to wait for your mana to reach roughly 200-300 (if you are attacked let your gradually accumulating force destroy invading enemies then hit retreat/fall back). This lets you cast shield 4 times in a row. Hit assault and halfway across the battlefield cast shield for the first time. You then want to wait for shield to reach 3 seconds remaining then cast again because it takes three seconds for the next shield to take effect. If shield is maxed and you chain it correctly then every single one of your troops should survive the battle. (even on levels like goblin madness or lord ball) If there are any "ants" in the way (like in goblin madness) they are totally destroyed by your block of troops. For goblin madness, your heros might not make it to the castle which dosent matter because if you have 35 damage resistant goblins, and those goblins are going to be alive for at least 1 minute 30 seconds (chaining a level 5 shield 4 times gives you the 1:30 of invulrability) and (if they attack once every 3-5 seconds at 40 damage per attack) thats 28000 points of damage just from one troop type...which you are pretty much gauranteed to get through. That technique works for every single level on epic.

Back to being slightly more on topic... fun, reasonably simple. I loved the variety of challenges, the big bang probably being my favorite (wooooow thats a big bomb)

My last comment is minor but i agree with quite a few people who have posted. The achievement "grindfest" is a bit overdone. It is also vague... I thought that by unlock all upgrades you meant simply to purchase the first level of each item (which is the definition of unlock, as when you first see an item on the grid it is grayed out and must be purchsed first thereby "unlocking" that piece) since you include with that all of the titans (each of which is over 100000 that takes a fairly long time to grind) for 50 medal points having to do that over 25 times just for the titans is rediculous.
The medal should be worth 100 points for MAXING (note the differece to unlocking) all upgrades. or 50 points for UNLOCKING all upgrades.

Thank you for an awesome game :)

heads up

highly enjoyable game, but the boss run and game completed medals are not showing up. I just thought Id put up a notice. Also why is there only one upgrade available with gamer points? The lack of earn-able (as opposed to purchasable) upgrades was a bit of a let down.
