Basic Tips and Reminders
   - Gather all Moonstones dropped, to summon more units.
   - Gather all Gold chunks dropped by enemies.
   - Save your Gold for later use, no need to buy anything except for the "Magic Starter Kit".

Formation Guide:
   - Example Formation: | Hacks | Busters | = means all tiles on the 1st column should be occupied by Hacks only, then all Busters on the 2nd column.
   - Example Formation: | Hacks and Zaps | Punks | = means on the 1st column, place at least 3 Hacks and 2 Zaps, then all Punks on the 2nd column.
   - 2nd Formation: do this after you complete the 1st Formation.


Strategy for Summoning Units (Steps and In-Order)
   - Always summon 2 Hacks then 1 Buster first.
   - Intercept an enemy using your Buster, but make sure to let your Buster fully heal first ("avoid getting hits and wait until he closes his mouth") before attacking another one.
   - Summon 1 more Hack then 1 Zap.

   - Summon any units you need next: Busters ("then line them up later"), Zaps (summon at least 2 asap), or start a line up of Punks. Continue until you complete the formation given below.

   - Other Notes:
   - Always remember, only summon 3 Hacks, 4 is ok but more than that would cost you more Gold.
   - Busters are your real front-liners, because Rocks aren't that sturdy. Rocks + Busters is the best defensive combination.
   - In case one of your Busters went down, quickly place another Buster on that same spot.
   - Note: You can interchange 2 Busters to take down a tough enemy.
   - Zap are the best easy summon-nukers in the game, very useful to weaken tough vikings.

- Dreamwoods Quick Walkthrough and Strategy Guide -

Dreamwoods 1
   - Formation: | Hacks | Punks | Busters |
   - Start practicng with your Busters.
   - Busters are your movable front-liners, and are very useful units for intercepting enemies. This is also a must unit to generate more Moonstones early game. Try to summon and control 4 Busters for now.

Dreamwoods 2
   - Formation: | Hacks | Punks | Busters |
   - Always remember, only summon 3 Hacks.

Dreamwoods 3
   - Follow the Tutorial for your Zap units.
   - Note: To cancel Zap's skill, use it outside the tiles.
   - At later stages, reserve Zap's skill for tough enemies, heavily grouped vikings, or any annoying enemies. Also note that you can target the lines between 2 tiles.

Dreamwoods 4
   - Formation: | Hacks and Zaps | Punks | Busters |
   - Reminder: Hacks and Zaps means place at least 3 Hacks and 2 Zaps.

Dreamwoods 5
   - Start of team selection, for now just select Hack, Punk, Buster and Zap, yup just 4 of them.
   - Formation: Same as Dreamwoods 4 above.
   - After the battle, buy the "Magic Starter Kit" to advance the game.

Dreamwoods 6
   - Tutorial: Defeat the vikings using Magic (free and infinite for this stage).
   - Note: After this battle, Magic will consume Gold if you don't have freebies. I suggest you save your Gold for later use, no need to buy or use Magic for now.

Dreamwoods 7
   - Formation: Same as Dreamwoods 4 above.
   - Use Zap's skill vs armored vikings.

Dreamwoods 8
   - Team Selection: Start using Hack, Punk, Buster, Zap, and Rock.
   - Formation: Same as Dreamwoods 4 above.
   - No need to use Rocks this time.

Dreamwoods 9
   - Formation: | Hacks and Zaps | Punks | None | None | Busters |
   - Use Busters to protect the crying mushrooms early game.
   - Get 2 Zaps asap using the given strategy above this guide.
   - Optional: Place a Rock unit in front of those crying mushrooms. If you did, place a Buster in front of that Rock.

Dreamwoods 10
   - Formation: Same as Dreamwoods 4 above.
   - Use Zap's skill vs tough and/or shielded vikings.
   - After completing the formation, advance your Busters and do this formation:
   - 2nd Formation: | Hacks and Zaps | Punks | Punks | Busters |

Dreamwoods 11
   - Formation: Same as Dreamwoods 4 above.
   - Use Zap's skill vs tough and/or shielded vikings.
   - After completing the formation, advance your Busters and do this formation:
   - 2nd Formation: | Hacks and Zaps | Punks | Punks | Busters |

Eric the Red
   - Formation: | Hacks and Zaps | Punks | Busters |
   - Have 3 Hacks and 2 Zaps, Loki will help you out here by healing your damaged units.
   - Once Eric the Red joins the battle, attack him using your Zaps, note that Zap's skill has a delay so time it well when using against fast moving targets.
   - When Eric the Red tries to attack a lane, intercept him with your Buster to prevent him from killing your weak units at the back. Do this until you complete the formation given above.

   - Optional: Advance your Busters and slowly do this formation:
   - 2nd Formation: | Hacks and Zaps | Punks | Punks | Busters |
After the battle, you can now access HARD MODE and the VALHALLA MODE!
   - Hard Mode will unlock the 2nd Star of every stage for more challenge.
   - Valhalla Mode is an endless stage, win three rounds in a row to gain a level.
