Junction

Classic (Pegasus) Junction, completed in 1:33.7

Junction is like the other games on the Classic level, your opponents are very slow to capture and promote their planets. This makes it difficult to get them to attack each other. But, with a good strategy, you can make it more likely that your opponents will help you out so that you can get a really good time.

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:41, double your initial planet and start attacking the triple planet behind orange, continue until you have the planet promoted to a triple. If orange captures the double planet to its left too quick, then it is likely that it will then double its initial planet as its next move. If this happens, start over. At 0:40, orange attacks the double planet closest to green. My strategy is to attack and capture the double planet just next to the initial planet and force orange to capture the planet next to green. In this video, orange went where I wanted it to before I could do that.
  2. From 0:42 to 0:51, capture but do not promote the double planet adjacent to your initial planet.
  3. From 0:52 to 1:10, start sending units from your planets to the vicinity of the green triple planet. Be careful not to weaken the single planet planet too much. You don’t want orange to attack.
  4. From 1:11 to 1:18, when green attacks orange, its time for your all out attack. First destroy the green triple planet.
  5. From 1:19 to 1:25, then destroy the green double planet.

From here, you just have two orange planets left to destroy.

Hex

Classic (Pegasus) Hex walk-through, completed in 46.8

Hex is really easy. A really good time is also easy, as long as you’re prepared to try enough times for your opponents to react in the way shown in this video.

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:19, capture the planet next to green. As soon as that planet is captured, use units from both of your planets to capture the planet next to orange.
  2. From 0:20 to 0:24, you can get good times without this happening, but the best times are when the opponent that captures the second planet, uses units from that second planet to try to promote its original planet. When this happens just prior to you capturing your third planet, then it may prompt an attack from the other opponent (orange in this case). This is when your best times will occur.
  3. From 0:25 to 0:33, orange has a partial capture on the planet it just destroyed. This used to cause me to attack orange first to prevent it from capturing that planet. Then I discovered that my best time comes when I do the opposite of that and attack green first. The reason is that orange is more likely to send units to the partially captured planet sooner than green would, if it doesn’t capture the planet, this will make orange weaker and easier to destroy.

From here all that is left is to attack and destroy the remaining orange planet.

Corona

Classic (Pegasus) Corona walk-through, completed in 1:38.2

The strategy for Corona relies on the initial move of your opponents being towards each other instead of towards your position. This gives you room to expand while make their clash inevitable.

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:07, double your initial planet and start attacking the single planet beneath green. When green moves to capture the single planet above its initial position, start attacking the single planet below orange. If either of your opponents react different that they do in this video, start over.
  2. From 0:08 to 0:17, capture the single planet adjacent to your initial planet.
  3. From 0:18 to 0:31, capture the single planet next to orange. This is to prevent orange from expanding in this direction.
  4. From 0:32 to 0:42, capture and promote the double planet. At 0:36 orange moves to capture the top planet. If anything other than orange capturing that planet occurs, start over.
  5. From 0:43 to 0:58, mass your units on the single planet next to orange. When orange promotes its planet to triple, destroy and capture that planet.
  6. From 0:59 to 1:04, capture the single planet next to your initial planet.
  7. From 1:05 to 1:24, I had planned on attacking green from the bottom up, but when green attacks and destroys the top orange double planet I changed my plan to destroy the top green and orange single planets to prevent either one of them from capture the top planet. Then, green starts promoting its triple planet to a double and I can’t pass up the opportunity to destroy it.

From here there are just two green planets left to destroy.
