Thanks for the tips, though I already figured out the fight in the corner strat. Simple really, just minimizing the amount of exposure to the enemy. Well... actually, this is a failed try. But I got the gist of it. This 'staircase' strategy actually works very well- because of the AI pathing, all of the dogs can't gang up on me right away, as the moment the dog reaches in attacking range of my tankers, they stop moving and instantly attack. This creates the 'space'- see those open spaces besides Yuria and Magic- that the dogs don't enter right away (until your formation breaks when one of your tankers die ) Well, this run failed, tho- but I was just testing things out anyway. And I definitely don't think I can beat the 12 dogs yet- though I will. How do you get handguns? If it's past the dogs, I won't be able to use the handgun against them, will I?
