Giant Ant missions:
Hold [Left Shift] and click on the round speaker at the title screen to play
the four bonus Giant Ant missions. To kill the ants easily, use Rocket Soldiers.

tech level of at least 7. Hold [Shift] before building a Radar Jammer. The
unit is now a Tesla Tank, although it looks like a Radar Jammer.
Low power strategy:
When you have low power, your defense (Turret, Flame Tower, Pillbox, etc.)

When the game loads, hold [shift] & left-click on the speaker located at the top
right hand corner of the screen.
Killing multiple grenadiers/flamethrowers:

to set off a chain reaction that will kill the rest.
