Army of Darkness tips
The characters we used to reach endless mode above

Army of Darkness Defence, a Follow That App of the Week, has been keeping us entertained and frustrated in equal measure this week. However, after a good deal of perseverance we have finally cracked the elusive level 50 and are now onto the ‘Endless mode.’

Much of the fun and frustration is in the trial and error that helps you finally unlock ‘endless mode’, but if you are short of time, then here are our tips for completing level 50. If you don’t want to know the answer look away now.

  1. You’ll either have to purchase enough credits to power-up your troops, castle and Ash to maximum or unlock these through playing your way through the levels and building up your credits
  2. Characters: we found the ideal mix was Swordsman, Spearman, Armoured Guard, Wiseman and Henry.
  3. Take on the skeleton army by ‘The Pit’ to buy you enough time to upgrade your Smithy to max.
  4. Launch your troops in waves of three – Swordsman, Spearman and Armoured Guard – building up a wall of resistance
  5. Weapons: The Wrong Book and Deathcoaster. Use the Deathcoaster to pile through the opposition and collect enough iron to then release the Wiseman and Henry.
  6. Keep launching waves of Swordsman, Spearman and Armoured Guards and using the Weapons to get you out of trouble until with a little luck and skill you complete level 50.
  7. And if you’d like to master Endless mode. Well, read our handy guide here.

Not working for you? Don’t worry, we’ve found another way with a slight change in the character mix – check our alternative strategy here.
