Gamma Rays (Perseus) Shelter walk-through, completed in 1:09.7

The strategy I use for Shelter is based on the strategy developed by Sigmafia1 as presented in his youtube video. The modification I made to this strategy is only for capturing planets a little faster.


Walk through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:08, send slightly more than half of your units to the double planet adjacent to green. Then continually send your remaining units to the double adjacent to orange. When one of the planets sends its units to capture another planet, start sending all of your units to the double planet adjacent to the other opponent.
  2. From 0:09 to 0:35, this part is a little tricky. You need to capture both of the double planets adjacent to your opponents. How you go about that at this point is dependent on what your opponents have done to this point.

When you are lucky enough to get to the point where your opponents have sent all of their units into the same planet and each opponent occupies just two planets and those planets will be destroyed by the gamma ray burst, then all you need to do is degrade your opponents enough so they can’t reconstitute their planets after the burst comes through.

  1. That was awesome! Thanks for the lesson. I cant figure out how or why I didnt think to send all my initial units to one planet once both opponents had chosen to not take the outside doubles. It was also a bad idea to take the lower center planet at the very end like I did instead of wiping out the last opponent. Anyway I understand how you got that amazing time now and you should rest easy knowing that it’s now virtually impossible to get a lower time than just when the first gamma ray comes as you have done. Its funny because ive been checking to see when you would post this Shelter demo and guess what.. It arrived on Nov. 23rd which is my birthday! Getting to see our work on your site was a great birthday gift. Thank again FuzzyBuckeye. You are truly and without question the Auralux2 master if earth.


    1. I think it’s possible to get a better time than mine. My time is 1:09.7 and I think it’s possible to get a time real close to when the gamma ray burst comes through at around 1:05.5. My thought for how to do this is to play until I get the opponents to react as they do in this video, then to modify my strategy at around 0:36. In this video I start attacking the opponents but what I should have done instead is to build up a mass on each side, then use the attack and release method on each opponent on a double planet. After that it should be possible to really degrade the opponents to where there aren’t enough units left when the gamma ray burst comes through.

      And, Happy Birthday.
