E8. Raven (The Final)

Objective: Destroy the Boss

Scout Towers. That’s the key to completing this map; without them you will not be able to reach the boss or the pink blobs beyond the first line.

The only Towers which are needed to complete the map are:

  • Focus Tower
  • Scout Tower
  • Splash Tower
  • Flame Tower

Start with two focus towers. These will eliminate all the enemies for all of the first waves of enemies. Your first focus tower should be placed directly below the big pink blob on the left hand side.


Start with one focus tower and when you have enough resources, build another one.


Upgrade both of the focus towers to their maximum. These will be very effective and will allow you to start building the other towers which are needed to complete the level and the game.

Once the focus towers are fully upgraded, build three scout towers between them and get them upgraded. Then start shooting the large pink blobs in front of the focus tower. It shouldn’t take long with your fully upgraded focus towers, but you’ll need to keep an eye on the enemies coming at you and switch your attention between them and the pink blobs.

The blobs will give you 500 resources once defeated. With this money build flame towers in the top right and left of the level. By upgrading these towers you can wipe off around half of all the enemies health before they get to your focus towers. Very handy.

Once you’ve taken out the first two big pink blobs, build another line of three scout towers and repeat. You’ll want to end up with a block of nine scout towers with the top line finally being able to reach the boss. Target the boss and in the meantime I built splash towers to help out and to catch any quick enemies from getting through.


This is the set-up that allowed me to defeat this level. It’s hard. I had to again play it on x1 once then pink squids started coming, and I found it helpful to individually target the squids so they didn’t freeze the focus towers.

    Thanks for the tips very effective. You do not have to place flame towers in the corners to proceed. Build two more focus towers on the inside underneath your scout towers directly next to your original focus towers and they will do the job. This is irrelevant as Robs method is excellent. Thanks again Rogue

    What is the use of the middle tower of the block of nine? It can’t reach either blob once you can build it.

    I also completed it without flame towers and with extra splash towers. in the bottom.

    I could not even survive the initial waves with the first focus tower… Am I missing something?

      Same here. Can’t get to the second focus tower because one can’t fend off the waves.

    Build first your right tower, then the left one

    Does anyone have any strategies for completing the badges of destroying the rocks? I thought there were only 2 up on the top left and right, but I wasn’t given credit. Makes me think you have to destroy all 8 ours those large blobs around the boss to succeed. I’m having problems lasting that long…

    I’m having a hard time geting the scouts to target the blobs with out the focus towers also targeting the blobs. Does anyone have a suggestion?

    In hard, starting resources is 355. so i can’t buy Focus tower.

    Extremely difficult even in easy mode. I tried to kill the row on the right first. However, these fast-moving small green dots keep on breaking my line of defense.

    Finally did it. Above pictures are probably for easy mode. Start off with 2 cannons on each side of the enemy trails (on the high ground, between the 2 darker gray paths) without interfering their path. This will allow you to survive for 8 waves without spending money. At the end of the 8 waves you will have enough fir a focus tower. Place this one above your cannon so you can target the purple blob. Shoot as much as possible on the blob by sometimes relying on your cannons to protect you. Upgrade the cannons as much as possible. Aftet killing the blob you will have enough money to buy another focus tower. Place this one above your other cannon and kill the other blob. Upgrade your focus towers with blob money and use fully upgraded scout towers to kill the 2 next blobs. After killing 4 start shooting the boss. Dont forget to upgrade your defense when possible. Fully upgraded focus towers will get you a long way:-)

    I’m playing this on my ipad2, and I stupidly started the level without focus towers. There seems to be no option to go back and change the towers I’ve chosen. Without the focus towers, it’s next to impossible, it seems. What do I do?

      back out, select menu, it will prompt you to save and quit, do so. from main screen, select start (not resume) start new mission, choose your towers
