    The easiest way to get a platinum medal, is after you've completed the campaign and the challenges (to unlock the plasma tower), pick pip, kenny, jimmy and whoever (i used craig) and start the 1st challenge on insane. Just build 3 upgraded plasma towers in the first 3 places avalible and position your whole team in the first gap. jimmy and pip can literally take out multiple waves with one special on this map, and you need to keep using kennys special to actually get enough coins.
    This is the first tower defence game i've ever played and i struggled with casual on some of the campaign however i managed platinum in 1 attempt with this method.

    Giving credit to Queegum, this is a variation off of his.

    Do the first challenge level on insane difficulty

    Characters:
    Timmy (devastating attack)
    Jimmy (devastating attack)
    Pip (devastating attack)
    Kenny (need for more coins)

    Set-up:
    In the first open spot: Upgraded plasma tower
    In the second open spot: Upgraded refrigerator tower
    In the third open spot: Upgraded plasma tower
    Remaining spots: snow to slow movement for stragglers

    Attack:
    Leave the all of the players on the first square so they can work towards their special. You will have no problem on the first couple rounds, but after that I would use one character's special attack per wave to take it out.
    You need to pay attention to Kenny and use his special, then use another person's so that you can amass as many coins as possible (they go towards the round end bonus). Be patient so to get through as much of the wave as possible and then use a character's special to finish it. That should do it, very simple and easy with this method.

    FroZeNSouLFor those still struggling..
    -dont let anyone go down
    -dont let any enemies escape
    -pick up as many if not all coins.
    only ones i left were when i didnt have super and were directly under enemies in path.

    i kept getting 450k and getting Myrrh medal.
    Once i started using a character to go grab single coins, and also used kenny 2x in the match when there was 2 1/2waves one screen (use LB to spawn quicker) then Timmy super to annihilate and pick up allcoins, i was able to get 475k for platinum :)

    First of all, you should beat the game to unlock all the characters.

    For this I went to challenge mode and used 20 Squares.

    My character choices would be: Butters, Stan, Cartman, and Craig.

    Save Butters and Cartmans specials for when there's LOTS of enemy's on the screen then take 'em out with your snowballs.

    Also if there are lots of enemy's on the screen and no one has a special use Craig's as it slows them down recharges fairly quickly.

    Now, as for stan, just throw snowballs and use your special in case any emeny's get past you guys. (They shouldn't.)

    For the map, just make a snake type thing, go up and down with the walls.
    Use lots of fireworks (preferebly upgraded) for Yanagopa, 6th Graders, and Homeless People. You also want some refrigoraters (preferebly upgraded). And then add in any towers you want, as you will a good bit of space to build.

    By the end my friends and I earned 2,930,964 points. And it only took about 15-25 minutes. (Yes this way is a little longer, but it's those of you who like a challenge, like me. :D) And GOOD LUCK to you all!

    Ichya ParadiseI did this on 20 squares as well. My character choice was different though. I used Timmy, Jimmy, Craig and Pip. Still, as the guide says, it is easier with two people as I did mine with my wife and snake the whole thing around with Fireworks and Refrigerators. After you earn more money, upgrade and build toward more weaknesses. I had mainly demons and terrorists on my play through but may change for other people. Craig saved me alot. Then I would use Timmy, Jimmy or Pip to plow through the enemies. Again, use characters that you are familiar with and they may differ as everyone else has. Good luck!

    Aura of HeroismMan, this was a good idea, but a challenge? I dunno bout all that. lol maybe at the start when you have to hurry and build everything, but after that, once you get your stuff built, you get so much money you dont even have to play. We were just using our specials for fun. Great solution. (BTW Team: Cartman, Kyle, Pip, and Craig)
