I have been holding off on Nightmare Mode. Stronger and tougher enemies is one thing, but no prep time is what makes me think of it as 'malicious' rather than 'challenging'. Instead I've just been getting high-scores on War Mage. Too bad I really don't get how the scoring system works, so it mostly comes down to finding new and creative ways to kills orcs.
Like on the Baths. Usually, I place few spring traps aiming towards the closest acid bath. This time, I felt a little more cheeky, and reversed them, making them aim at the bath in the opposite direction.
The kill rate wasn't 100% like with the other method, but actually seeing all those orcs fly around was so much more funny. Like the one time an orc got launched, hit the ceiling, fell on top of another spring trap, and got launched again into the acid pit. Classic!
Incidentally, I have found a co-op buddy after showing him a few levels of the original. We'll be playing as soon as he fixed his computer. Yay.
