The Last Shelter Research Build
Here is the research build path I used in my video guide. You can follow mine and apply changes to suit your playing style. Shooting Radius is maxed first to allow towers to decrease number of bugs early on. Next, max Weapon Armoring to enable towers sustain heavy damage before blowing up. Max Support Recharge Time to call Air Support and Nuke frequently against powerful bugs especially multiple Scorpions. Max Speed of Repair to hasten tower fixes during the heat of battle followed by dump remaining EXP (experience) into Tower Refund and lastly

The Last Shelter Review
This is a fun casual tower defense game but requires lots of strategy and balancing to win the game. The first 9 Missions are piece-of-cake on Normal Mode but the level difficulty sky-rockets from Mission 10 till 15. There is a need to rearrange the map according to the difficulty such as Mission 14 was much more challenging compared to Mission 15.
Room for improvements for this game are hotkeys, tower variation and game options. Talking about Game Options, I prefer to have a speed toggle button that allows me to switch game pace from 0%, 50%, 100% and 200% with a click (not holding!) of a mouse or keyboard. Why I suggest 50% speed is when there are so many bugs running around my front-yard, I can’t seem to catch up, ending all my towers destroyed for my slow click response. A pause button to allow players to put repairs/shield/sell will be great. Having a keyboard configuration menu is nice to allow players to configure hotkeys based on QWERTY/DVORAK Keyboard.
More on Tower Variation, this game offers 3 types of towers, one of it needs a makeover. The Rocket Launcher that shoots homing missiles explodes on its target with a boom but only damages a single bug (and sometimes misses) even when there are cluster of bugs. This is one serious game bug. Instead of coming up with additional offensive towers, I suggest that developer to try supportive towers. Support Towers which can auto-repair, freeze or poison enemies to reduce their armor/speed or boost surrounding towers attacking speed-damage-range.
Regarding the Research Menu, it would better to have it points based instead of EXP. Player spend their earned stars for upgrades and allow players to reset their skills depending on the mission they play. For instance, players might end up distributing their points incorrectly therefore ended up remaking their character (game slot). To spice the Research Facility, the medal earned for completing Ultimate Mode can be use to unlock new towers or special upgrades, this gives player an incentives to work for it while having a feeling of accomplishment winning a difficult game.
