A lot of people are asking for more cheats, tricks and strategy hints on Flash Element TD, the very popular tower defense free online game. Previously we provided some cheats, hints and strategy (and even an alleged hack) in our review of Flash Element TD (follow link to get there). Now we have found or developed some more cheats and strategies that you can try to get a lot of success in online Flash Element TD. One guy has a lot of nice graphics too that we have linked to.

We don't think these really are cheats, as they are not cheat codes for Flash Element TD (yet). Rather they are more strategy hints that can be followed to the higher levels of Flash element TD, although some cheats are in there to be found by doing the strategies noted.

You can play this game and discover the tricks and cheats to win with some practice. The tips we provide here can help you accelerate that Flash Element TD skill learning.

Here are some of the best cheats for Flash Element TD discovered so far:


  • Use the overlapping tower cheat.
  • As another variant on the overlapping tower cheat, Go three deep up the right side of the maze with fire towers at later stages of Flash Element TD
  • Move towers cheat: Sell towers as they get out of range to inc erase banked gold when have a high interest rate. Especially in last round to increase the number of points in end. Here click this link for a YouTube video of the move towers cheat.
  • Right Side Strategy / Cheat: This may actually be a hack. One staple of Flash Element TD lore is that you can beat the final level by lining the right side with fire towers exclusively, utilizing the overlapping tower cheat, and also utilizing upgrades of the towers. Here is a link for a YouTube video of the right side fire tower Flash Element TD strategy implemented to beat Flash Element TD.
  • Build Money Fast Strategy (not cheat): earn a lot of interest and money so you can freely buy lives as needed. This Flash Element TD trick is discussed more below.
  • When initially building, create strong spots. So spread towers to cover entire maze first, and then when entire maze covered, build strong spots i.e. around each of the towers built. Eventually entire maze will be covered and be a giant Flash Element TD strong spot.
Here's one cheat / strategy we like - Using Arrow towers at the beginning and upgrade them.


  • In early levels, try 2 arrow towers and upgrade them when you can, and then add a third arrow
  • Level 3, another arrow tower and upgrade
  • Level 7 use wood to buy water tower and build a water tower
  • Then add another water tower when needed, upgrade
  • These should get you up to Level 14, although you can add another water tower if needed. Make sure the water towers are within range of at least 1 or 2 arrow towers to get the added firepower in the splash zones.
  • Level 14 buy fire sell all the arrow towers
  • Then keep adding fire towers. Should also spread splash zones all throughout the maze board of Flash Element TD.
  • Level 21 take interest with the wood, same at Level 28
  • At the final levels where the baddies and creeps go to 5000 HP all the way to 30,000 HP you will need to keep adding fire towers, use the overlay cheat and upgrade strategically.
  • The fourth bonus level (20,000 HP) you need at least 5 rocket towers, preferably 15 all placed to attack in slow spots.

One cheat or strategy we like is the Build Money fast trick for defeating Flash Element TD. That way you can buy lives with gold whenever you need them and effectively double the size of the maze by if necessary allowing the baddies creeps to go through twice. One way of doing this is nicely laid out at diy Nation blog. An adaptation of this build money Flash Element TD strategy is:

  • Round 1 - Use a single upgraded Arrow tower
  • Upgrade to level 3 in next round
  • Then in each of rounds 5 and 6, add another arrow tower and full upgrade it.
  • In round 8, use wood to buy fire element and then any time another wood pops up buy interest. Build a fire tower and sell an arrow tower.
  • In round 10 add another fire tower and sell an arrow tower
  • In round 13 add another Fire Tower
  • In round sell last arrow tower and add fire tower.
  • Upgrade first fire tower to level 2 power
  • Round 19: Upgrade first and second fire towers
  • In round 21, make sure all fire towers have been upgraded and add one more at level 1
  • In round 26, upgrade fire tower last one.
  • In round 30 add 2 fire towers
  • Round 32, add 4 more level 2 fire towers
  • Round 36-37: and upgrade and add more as needed.

if you want to download it just create an html doc and embed it.

My strategy is to first get tons of arrow, get water at first upgrade, then add tons of water, then fire, and intrest. At later levels sell some arrow, get more fire/water.

I got a final score of 8816 with my strategy.

here are the basics...

1 cannon upgraded 100% until lvl 6
2 fully upgraded cannons on lvl 6
choose fire weapon on lvl 7 and sell both cannons and build one fire that is upgraded once
upgrade fire once for boss on lvl 11
upgrade again before 16
research water
upgrade fire before 17
add fully upgraded water before 19
research earth
build rocket before boss

I kept around 2,000 gold per round from then out and built rockets in the center of the map. Ended up with around 25-30 rockets. That was the hardest tower game I have ever played and it took forever to beat.

There is flaw in this game. When you are at a high level and you fancy upgrading every single tower you have, right click and go on 'rewind'. This will take you right back to the beginning so you can build up coins and upgrade then start again. However, once you have gone on rewind, you cannot build anymore towers as other towers you have already will start to disappear in the order that yu built them.
A strategy i like to use is to start normally but build lots of cannons and arrows. Once you have done that continue through the game and build fire, earth and water towers. Once you have enough, rewind the game and keep doing this to build up enough money to upgrade your fire, earth and water towers. Do not build anything else after you have rewinded until later. Once you have everything you want upgraded rewind again and let your money rise as you keep playing. Once you are at a pretty high level with loads of money then you can build lots of combo towers. As you build combo towers, the arrows and cannons you built t the beginning will start to disappear in the order that you built them. This is why you should build lots so noneof your upgraded fire, water and earth towers are deleted. Once you have spent all your money building combo towers, rewind and build up coins to upgrade all of them. Once they are all upgraded, rewind, yet again, and let your money and points build up. Do not build anything or spend any money and at the end you will have a very high score.
Hope this helps :)

As soon as you start the level that has 'small boys' right click and go on rewind. Kill the sheep then your money and score should keep going up.You will eventually get a number that goes of the meter. A drawback to this is that you cannot save your score but its still good fun because you can build whatever you want with your unlimited money.

The "rewind" thing doesn't work for me, and neither do any of the strategies mentioned by other users.

I can get as far as level 33. No matter how many fire, water &/or Earth towers I have, I can't seem to kill everything, and I end up losing all my lives.

HEY i hve the best cheat ever in flash element:

first play normally till you see you cant win ( for example wave 30)
then click in the right button of the mouse and go in the "rewind"
it will restart from the beggining, but with the turrets you had in the last game. but you cant see the creeps life.
then click again in the right button of the mouse and click on "reproduce"
it will start again but you can see already the creeps life.
try to continue the game without building any other turret because ANY TURRET YOU BUILD WILL MAKE DISSAPEAR ONE OF THE LAST GAME, IN THE ORDER YOU BUILD THEM THE LAST GAME, so when you need to build turrets, you sell the others from the last game and you will have many fucking money
dont spend so much money because THE SCORE YOU HAVE IS THE MONEY YOU HAVE
