Mechanical Samadhi


A guide for the mechanical Shamadhi badge!

Yeah, I don't have the badge personally. But I beat all the challenges before, as annoying as they were with no reward...
Anyway, lets go challenge by challenge, shall we?

Challenge 1: Intro...
This one is EASY!!!!! You could beat it around 50% of the time doing nothing. Best strategy.... Send all your units, at the start, after one unit. Once it becomes a brawl, one DIFFERENT unit of the enemies will get hurt a lot. Send your robos after him, and he should die. Then with it 3 against one, gang up on the next weakest. Then kill the final ones.
Challenge 2: Evasion...
Prepare yourself around 5 minutes to beat this at the least, and maybe an hour at the most. This one is all luck. Just keep avoiding the enemy, going in a circular path. AFAIK, the robots turn the shortest arc, so use that to your advantage. If your enemy cuts you off, turn the opposite direction, but just under 180 degrees so that you turn almost completly around, AND go in a way that avoids the enemy. If you mess up, you kind of sweep into the enemy, which will get at least 3 hits in before you escape. Continue to do that and if you get lucky, you should win.

Challenge 3: Strategy...
Manual control is the key here. You want to avoid the pawn, keep away from the knight, and keep the bishop in range and closest to you. That is kind of a hard thing to do, at least for any good period of time. I reccommend starting off holding back, getting kind of near the top right corner, sweeping by, and going for the bishop. Stay away from the pawn and ignore the knight. Once the bishop is dead, get out of range of the knight(try trapping him behind the corpse) and kill the pawn. Finally, try to snipe the knight from out of his range. It should take a couple tries maybe, but this one is pretty easy.
Challenge 4... Distracting...
This is a toughie.... The best strategy is, of course, to keep Shield in front of dragon and have Sword snipe him. So have sheild follow dragon and manually keep sword in range. The tricky part is when dragon hits a wall. You then need to manuall keep shield from getting right next to dragon, so he stays in range. If you do this just right, you should be able to kill dragon with a couple hits left on Sword, and sheild will probably die right near the end.
Challenge 5: Sniping....
Basically evasion again, but with everyone being able to hit farther away. This one is really hard, I would reccommend that if you do get caught in fire, try going through the group, because you might get close enough to prevent them from firing. It is really tough, and mostly based o n the luck on whether or not you wind up killing an enemy or hurting all 3...
Challenge 6: Protection...
This one, people complain, is impossible. This one, I say, is easier than mission one. Yeah, I said it. You can actually just let this one play itself with only 2 clicks. Make the solider attack the commander, and make medic follow solider. Chekc every 30 seconds to see if nothing totally weird happened, and win.
Hammertime!!!!!

This one is pretty easy. Just send 2 hammers to the top and bottom robots, or send all four to the bottom 2 or top 2, and let them brawl it out. With the double teaming, you have about an 80% chance of winning. And if you lose, it still looks cool!
Go get the hard badge now!

Something easier for Hammertime: Don't touch anything and you'll win.

Please fix it so the whole guide isn't on the front page.

Hammertime is weird in that sometimes you'll win if you don't touch anything, and sometimes you'll lose. I completely agree that challenge 5 is one of the easier ones. If anything, it seems like an easier version of the second challenge.
