GeoDefense Swarm Strategy - Hard Level 4 (Crazy Ivan)


GeoDefense Swarm Strategy

Hard Level 4 - Crazy Ivan

Spoiler Warning...

I'm not sure why this level is named after a submarine tactic but what the heck.

This shouldn't be a hard level (in my opinion). The first solution I tried worked. It should be fairly obvious from the attached photo.

There is a new creep introduced in this level - a sort of sparkly dude. Lasers don't seem to do them much damage but the rockets knock them out.


  1. For those of us who actually lose the level and read the text and/or insults leveled at us, it turns out that the lasers heal the star clusters.

  2. I have no idea if anyone will see this 9 months later, but I am absolutely at my wit's end with this one. I have tried probably 150 times. I can't believe that it's so easy that there are hardly any pages on the internet to help me. Can you PLEASE spell things out for me in terms of your purchase and upgrade strategy? I consistently die on level 16 or 17. I am playing v1.6 on hardcore mode--all walkthroughs and videos I've seen do not work for me even when following the timing exactly. Please please help.

  3. Don't bother trying, there's a known issue with the newer phones (iPhone 4 and 4S). For some reason the game is harder on the newer phones. The developer knows about it and is looking into it. This level is near impossible now, I have gotten to level 20 only briefly, with no money left and very powerful towers and a swarm left to go and there is no way to beat it.

  4. Thanks for the notes guys. I beat this back last year on the iPhone 3 and thought I'd play it again this week - and I can't beat this level. I thought I was crazy Ivan
    Because I knew I had. Now I know why!!!!

  5. I just beat this level on the Windows Phone - Nokia Lumia 900 (Tango) using this tactic. the key was to keep upgrading my towers and use my connected pulse tower for wave 20. I have 15 lives left. also I start with a laser canon at the top left down about 3 spots so to block that channel, I later add a missile tower as show above and delete the laser.
