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.

Trigger

Supernovas (Hercules) Trigger walk-through, completed in 2:00.5

As a bonus level, Trigger joins Fog with the a Supernova. I ignore the supernova and just play it like it is fog only. The key, for me is can I see the initial move of the opponents. My best times, by far, are when both of their initial moves are away from me. If I don’t see at least one opponent move away from me, or if I see an opponent move towards me, then I start all over.

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:09, after doubling up the 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 green is making a move away from my planet. Orange doesn’t move till after it is obscured by the fog. However, at around the 55 second mark you can tell which way orange first moved. Make sure you know where the double planet you’re going to attack is located, here I’m going to the bottom double, nearest green. When you can just see the double you’re after, go ahead and attack.
  2. From 0:10 to 0:31, capture the double planet, then the singleton next to your opponent.
  3. From 0:32 to 0:50, now you need to prepare for destroying the green double. Position your units close by so that as soon as green doubles up you can destroy and capture it. Here I take out green quickly, sometimes green sends in reinforcements and it takes a long time to destroy their double. When this happens, I give up and start over.
  4. From 0:51 to 1:02, finish capturing and promoting your planets. Here I should have promoted my double prior to capturing the singleton, then my units would have been moving in the direction of orange. At the beginning of this game I didn’t see orange’s initial move. If their move was towards me, then right around the 50 to 55 second mark you’ll start seeing orange taking the singleton next to your initial double. If they do move in around that time, I give up and start over.
  5. From 1:03 to 1:13, I started out with plans to mass my units and destroy the orange double that is just on the edge of the fog. When orange captured the singleton, my plans changed. Now, it had to be destroyed and captured.
  6. From 1:14 to 1:27, now you can mass your units and wait for orange to promote their double planet. When they do, that is when you want to destroy, capture and promote it.
  7. From 1:28 to 1:39, here you can move around the singleton and attack the orange double behind it. You want to destroy, capture and promote this double. this will be the last planet you want to capture. Once it is promoted you’ll be able to attack all of the opponent planets that remain.
  8. From 1:40 to 1:44, time to destroy the singleton you just bypassed.

From here you only have 3 planets left to destroy, and if you’re lucky like I was here, green will destroy the orange planet for you.
