Gemcraft Labyrinth Walkthrough
Gemcraft Labyrinth is the third game in the Gemcraft series of tower defense games. Like its predecessors, Gemcraft Labyrinth features detailed graphics, stunning visual effects, automatic saving, and challenging gameplay.
Unlike the other Gemcraft games that featured a map going from location to location to represent the various levels, Gemcraft Labyrinth features a 13 x 13 grid to explore. This means that Gemcraft Labyrinth has 169 different levels to beat! Don't worry; you won't have to beat all of these levels to beat the game. Your objective is to make it to the center of the labyrinth.
In order to uncover sections of the labyrinth, you will have to complete prior sections. Sections of the labyrinth that you may play through are visible, while sections that you have already completed are highlighted in white. As was the case in the previous Gemcraft games, you may want to retry levels that you have already beaten in Gemcraft Labyrinth in order to gain more experience points.
When you have gained enough experience points in Gemcraft Labyrinth, you will level up and gain skill points. Skill points are used to upgrade in this tower defense game. I advise you to upgrade your focus and replenish skills first in order to keep a high level of mana; you will need it to survive in this tower defense game. As you level up, you will unlock more skills that will help you in your quest.
All of this talk about upgrades and the overworld, and we still haven't talked about battling! Battles are handled just as they were in the previous Gemcraft games. You must prevent monsters from reaching your magic orb by building walls, towers, traps, and amplifiers to stop their advance. Towers, traps, and amplifiers must be equipped with gems in order to work. Towers are used to attack monsters at range, traps are used for short-ranged attacks with greater special effects, and amplifiers increase the damage and special abilities of nearby towers and traps. All of these things (as well as the gems that power them) cost mana, so make sure to keep your mana pool high!
If a monster manages to reach your magic orb, will banish the monster back to the beginning of the path at the cost of some mana. If you do not have enough mana to banish the monster, you will lose the level and will have to play again in order to beat it. This is why it is very important to establish a high level of mana in the beginning of each battle in Gemcraft Labyrinth. Not only will you need mana to banish monsters, you will need it to create gems and defensive structures to destroy monsters before they can reach your magic orb.
If the battle is moving too slowly, you may fast-forward this tower defense game by clicking on the appropriate button in the upper-left corner of the interface, or you can summon future waves by clicking on their number in the left side of the screen. Gemcraft Labyrinth also gives you the chance to face more monsters by dropping a gem bomb on the wave when summoning it. This will reward you with more experience, but puts you at a greater risk of losing.
Gemcraft Labyrinth is a massive game that is sure to please fans of the Gemcraft series. This action game is not one for the feint at heart, and requires a lot of patience to enjoy. If you want a quick action game, then Gemcraft Labyrinth is not for you. If you have the patience and tenacity to stick with it, however, Gemcraft Labyrinth can be an entertaining and rewarding gaming experience.
