Centrum

Supernovas (Hercules) Centrum walk-through, completed in 2:03.2

The strategy used here is a modification of the strategy used in a previous post on Centrum. The main differences are in capturing the center planet, thus denying it to green and destroying the green triple earlier. In addition the double planet is ignored, allowing the supernova to be triggered sooner.

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:02, double your initial planet.
  2. From 0:03 to 0:10, send some units off to the right, wait a little and then send them towards the single planet adjacent to green.
  3. From 0:11 to 0:17, while those units area heading towards the single planet, promote your initial planet to a triple.
  4. From 0:18 to 0:24, redirect all of your units to the center single planet.
  5. From 0:25 to 0:30, send a few units towards the single planet adjacent to green, then continue capturing the center single planet.
  6. From 0:31 to 0:40, capture the single planet adjacent to green.
  7. From 0:41 to 0:46, keep building up your units on the single planet adjacent to green. You are waiting for green to promote their initial planet to a triple. If green sends units from their double planet to help in promoting their triple, start over, as this will get the green triple promoted before you are ready to destroy it.
  8. From 0:47 to 0:59, as soon as green starts promoting their triple planet, you want to attack, destroy, capture and promote that planet.
  9. From 1:00 to 1:10, use units from your triple planet to capture its adjacent single planet, while doing this promote your other triple planet.
  10. From 1:11 to 1:17, when orange starts attacking the green double planets, send all of your units to your center planet.
  11. From 1:18 to 1:21, use your mass of units to attack the orange double planet. You are trying to time this right so that orange can destroy the green planets, and your are using this attack on the orange double to get orange to send reinforcements back there and prevent orange from having enough units to capture the green planets it just destroyed.
  12. From 1:22 to 1:28, when your mass of units is over the supernova, attack and trigger the supernova.
  13. From 1:29 to 1:35, after the supernova, you want to destroy the orange double planet first. While you are doing this, look at the double planets orange just destroyed and notice which one orange is closest to capturing.
  14. From 1:36 to 1:39, attack and destroy the front orange single on the side you noticed in the previous step. At the same time use the units left from destroying the orange double planet to destroy the back orange single.
  15. From 1:40 to 1:44, send all units to destroy the top orange planet.
  16. From 1:45 to 1:49, destroy the center orange planet.
  17. From 1:50 to 1:53, destroy the front orange planet.

From here, you just have to destroy the remaining two orange planets in the quickest manner possible.

Threat

Supernovas (Hercules) Threat walk-through, completed in 1:28.8

The strategy used here is similar to a previous post on Threat. The main difference is the strategy was implemented better and there was a little luck at the end when the last orange planet attempted to capture another planet at the last moment and made the final planet easier to destroy.

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:08, capture the double planet closest to the supernova of one of your opponents. I always attack the green side, but either side will work. When your units are on the way to the double planet, start sending new units from your planet to the single planet just below your opponent. This will discourage your opponent from capturing that planet.
  2. From 0:09 to 0:22, capture the single planet just below green.
  3. From 0:23 to 0:29, build up your units on the single your just captured. Usually, after building up enough units, I use the attack and release method to get green to attempt to double its planet. In this video, green started doubling just prior.
  4. From 0:30 to 0:43, when green attempts to double, destroy and then capture the green double planet.
  5. From 0:44 to 0:53, capture the single planet between your initial planet and orange.
  6. From 0:54 to 1:07, build up your units and send them behind the orange planets. Use attacks on the orange double and the single planet orange just captured to get orange to move its units all the way to the right so it can destroy the remaining green planet.
  7. From 1:08 to 1:13,  initiate an attack on the back orange double planet by first sending units at the supernova. Occasionally this will prompt orange to waste some units from their two double planets by sending them into the supernova. When the units get near the orange double, attack and destroy it.
  8. From 1:14 to 1:18, destroy the remaining orange double planet.

From here you just need to destroy the two remaining orange planets. When this goes well, orange will have destroyed the remaining green planet without being able to capture it.

Bombshell

Supernovas (Hercules) Bombshell walk-through, completed in 1:22.0

That supernova can be so tempting, but the correct strategy for Bombshell is to ignore the supernova and instead coerce your opponents into capturing planets that will maximize their attacks on each other.

 

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:01, double your initial planet.
  2. From 0:02 to 0:10, wait a couple of seconds and then start sending your units to the planet just above green. You don’t want to capture the planet, you just want to prevent green from doing so.
  3. From 0:11 to 0:19, as soon as green captures one of the center planets, redirect all of your units and capture the single planet on the green side that is adjacent to the supernova.
  4. From 0:20 to 0:30, capture the single planet on the orange side that is adjacent to the supernova. In this video green captures a planet on the orange side and orange captures the planet on the green side. This is what you want. If anything other than this happens, start over.
  5. From 0:31 to 0:42, capture and promote the double planet on the orange side.
  6. From 0:43 to 0:56, green attacks and destroys the orange planet, when this happens move your units into position near green’s initial planet.
  7. From 0:57 to 1:03, use the attack and release method to get green to attempt to double its planet, then destroy it.
  8. From 1:04 to 1:11, when orange sends units from its single planet, attack and destroy the planet.

Fortunately for me, orange decided to attack the green double planet. After this there were only a couple of planets remaining for me to destroy.

Trigger

Supernovas (Hercules) Trigger walk-through, completed in 1:55.2

This strategy for Trigger is a slightly modified version of the strategy used in a previous post. The main differences are in how many planets are captured/promoted and leaving an orange planet till the end so it can be destroyed simultaneously with the final green planet.

 

Walk through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:07, after doubling up your initial planet, you need to wait till the fog descends. As the fog is descending watch both opponents and see how they move. Here at: 0:05 you can see both of the opponents are making a move away from my planet. If you see one of the opponents move in your direction, start over.
  2. from 0:08 to 0:30, capture the double planet and then the single planet adjacent to green.
  3. From 0:31 to 0:50, use the attack and release method to get green to promote to a double, then attack, destroy and capture the green double planet. Sometimes green sends in reinforcements and it takes a long time to destroy the double planet. When this happens, start over.
  4. From 0:51 to 1:00, capture the single planet just above your initial planet.
  5. From 1:01 to 1:21, mass your units near the top left orange double planet. As soon as orange attacks your planet you need to destroy, capture and promote the orange double.
  6. From 1:22 to 1:38, the double that was just captured will burn off enough fog so you can skip the single planet next to you and attack the orange double planet instead. Start massing your units at a point where you can attack the orange double. When you have massed enough units you need to destroy, capture and promote the orange double. While you are doing this the orange single planet will probably attack you. If it does, reinforce the planet it is attacking just enough to prevent it from being destroyed.
  7. From 1:39 to 1:47, if you are lucky green will be destroying the orange single adjacent to the planet you just promoted. You just need to prevent green from capturing the planet, then destroy the green double planet.

From this point you have an orange and green planet remaining. use your planets that are closest to each of these planets to attack and destroy them.

Fuse

Supernovas (Hercules) Fuse walk-through, completed in 1:54.0

I started out following the same strategy for Fuse that was used in a previous post. The change in this video is I adapted the strategy to the first moves of the opponents. Previously I would always capture the planets on the left side of the screen. Now, the side I capture first is determined by purple. I capture the side opposite of purple’s first move. Even with that, the time accomplished in this video is due to the opponents attacking each other in situations where they would usually attack me. It’s all about setting things up so you can take advantage of the luck that comes your way.

Walk through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:19, send your units to capture the single planet above you on the orange side. Before that planet is captured, start sending new units from your initial planet to the planet just above and adjacent to orange. After capturing your second planet, send all of your new units to capture the planet above and adjacent to orange.
  2. From 0:20 to 0:32, capture the planet above and adjacent to green.
  3. From 0:33 to 0:41, capture the top right double planet.
  4. From 0:42 to 0:56, capture the bottom right double planet. At 0:45 green starts attacking the single planet I bypassed. I really want that planet and almost stopped this game because of that. I’m glad I decided to continue and instead started sending some units to prevent green from capturing the planet.
  5. From 0:57 to 0:59, finish capturing the top planet.
  6. From 1:00 to 1:08, capture the top left double planet. I never expected this planet to remain available for me. This is the first time I remember that ever happening.
  7. From 1:09 to 1:14, since green is just now weakening its double planet, destroy and capture it.
  8. From 1:15 to 1:22, destroy the right most green planet.
  9. From 1:23 to 1:33, simultaneously destroy the green and orange double planets.
  10. From 1:34 to 1:31, purple cooperates by attacking orange, so I redirect my units around that planet in order to destroy the purple double planet.

From here there are just two planet left to destroy. Attack both of them simultaneously to prevent them from capturing another planet.

Terminus

Supernovas (Hercules) Terminus walk-through, completed in 1:44.5

The strategy for Terminus is simple, double your initial planet and then capture the six single planets adjacent to the supernova. After that, all you’ll need for a really good time is good timing and a little luck.

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:02, double your initial planet.
  2. From 0:03 to 0:20, capture the closest of the single planets protecting the supernova. I always start with the top planet, the bottom should work just as well.
  3. From 0:21 to 0:41, continue by capturing the next two planets on the top. Since orange is going to capture a planet that will destroy some of your units, start sending units from your double planet to the center of the six single planets, when the units get there redirect them to the planet you are capturing.
  4. From 0:42 to 1:02, stop sending units from your double planet as one of your opponents will capture the center planet that will block the units. Finish capturing the remaining three planets protecting the supernova.
  5. From 1:03 to 1:09, build up your units on the left most single planets. This is to have the units ready to attack and to discourage your opponents from attacking these planets.
  6. From 1:10 to 1:18, in this video, orange is attacking the center double planet owned by green. When this happens send units from your double planet and your top row of single planets up towards the top orange planet.
  7. From 1:19 to 1:23, since green has just sent its mass of units into the center planet, position units from your double planet and the bottom row of single planets to a position near the bottom green planet.
  8. From 1:24 to 1:25, orange is sending its mass of units to attack the center planet so go ahead and destroy the next orange double planet.
  9. From 1:26 to 1:31, destroy the bottom green double planet. While doing this also attack and destroy the remaining orange double planet.
  10. from 1:32 to 1:37, attack and destroy the two remaining green double planets.

There are only two planets left to destroy. Be aware when one of your opponents has a partial capture they can take advantage of. In this case green has a partial capture of the center planet. For this reason the green planet needs to be destroyed first.

Fuse

Supernovas (Hercules) Fuse walk-through, completed in 2:00.02

My strategy for Fuse is fairly simple. Deny your opponents the initial capture that does you the most harm. Then capture the planets that places an opponent between you and another opponent. This will make it more likely that your opponents will expend their units attacking each other instead of attacking you.

In this video my initial moves are on the orange side, this strategy works just as well if you flip the script and make your initial attacks on the green side.

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:04, send your units to capture the single planet above you on the orange side. Before that planet is captured, start sending new units from your initial planet to the planet just above and adjacent to orange.
  2. From 0:05 to 0:07, when orange gives up and sends it units elsewhere, start using all of your units to attack the single planet above green. You don’t want this planet, but you do not want to green to have it now. The sooner green captures that planet, the sooner green will start attacking your planets.
  3. From 0:08 to 0:19, when green gives up on the top planet, redirect your units to capturing the single planet adjacent to orange.
  4. From 0:20 to 0:33, capture the bottom left double planet. You are capturing this double first because it is the one orange is most likely to capture.
  5. From 0:34 to 0:47, capture and promote the top double planet.
  6. From 0:48 to 0:57, just as orange sends units from its leftmost planet, you want to destroy and capture that planet.
  7. From 0:58 to 1:06, when orange moves units off of its top double planet, you want to destroy and capture that planet.
  8. From 1:07 to 1:20, as you bide your time, build up your units on the single planet adjacent to orange. As soon as orange makes a move to attack one of your opponents, destroy and capture the orange double planet.
  9. From 1:21 to 1:25, destroy and capture the remaining orange planet.

Now it just you against green. You want to destroy green in the fastest way possible. While doing so you need to pay attention to the green supernova. If its supernova isn’t near exploding, let green waste units on the supernova. If it is near going off, you need to capture the green planets closest to the supernova first.
