Introduction:
My first guide, with hopefully more to come.
Enjoyed the first game, so bought Swarm on day one. Currently priced at 2.29/$2.99.
There are 3 difficulties to play with 10 levels per difficulty, the last level of each having unlimited waves. You can also play any level at any time.

Step 1a:
Go into Help & Options and click on Hardcore Mode so that it now says Novice Mode. This will make the game much easier!

Step 1b:
You can go Here for the best setup for each level.

Step 2:
Play through the levels. It is best to start on Easy 1 and work your way up. You get an achievement for completing one level of each difficulty, then the 9 levels of each difficulty, and again all 9 without losing a life. The 10th level of each difficulty does not count as it is endless. A green tick next to each level means you have completed it, a gold star means you have completed it without losing a life.

You can knock out the miscellaneous achievements during the easy levels, an achievement for each tower being upgraded to max(7) exluding the Thump tower. The Vortex towers appear on Medium already placed which can be upgraded, dropping one of each tower on this level will unlock the Turret Happy achievement. The x50 multiplier will come natural without even trying.

These achievements won't unlock until the game has ended! So don't worry if it doesn't pop as soon as you upgraded a tower to full, placed all the towers or got x50 or higher.

Easy Start 1
As the achievement says, beat any level on Easy. Does not have to be done without losing a life, and the last endless level does not count.

Beat Easy 2
As the achievement says, beat all 9 levels on Easy. Does not have to be done without losing a life, and the last endless level does not count.

Easy Owned 10
As the achievement says, beat all 9 levels on Easy without losing a life. Again the last endless level does not count.

Medium Start 5
As the achievement says, beat any level on Medium. Does not have to be done without losing a life, and the last endless level does not count.

Beat Medium 10
As the achievement says, beat all 9 levels on Medium. Does not have to be done without losing a life, and the last endless level does not count.

Medium Owned 30
As the achievement says, beat all 9 levels on Medium without losing a life. Again the last endless level does not count.

Hard Start 7
As the achievement says, beat any level on Hard. Does not have to be done without losing a life, and the last endless level does not count.

Beat Hard 15
As the achievement says, beat all 9 levels on Hard. Does not have to be done without losing a life, and the last endless level does not count.

Hard Owned 85
As the achievement says, beat all 9 levels on Hard without losing a life. Again the last endless level does not count.

Green Machine 5
As the achievement says, just upgrade the green Blaster tower to Level 7, the highest level.

Blue Thunder 5
As the achievement says, just upgrade the blue Laser tower to Level 7, the highest level.

Red Menace 5
As the achievement says, just upgrade the red Missile tower to Level 7, the highest level.

Shock And Awe 5
As the achievement says, just upgrade the yellow Shock tower to Level 7, the highest level.

Flux Vortex 5
As the achievement says, just upgrade the multicoloured swirling Vortex tower to Level 7, the highest level. You cannot place this tower, they start appearing already placed from Medium onwards.

Close Call 5
For every kill your multiplier goes up by 1. After 50 kills in one level you should get this. Killing enemies closer to the red exit gives you a higher multiplier.

Turret Happy 5
Just place one of each turret down in one level. The earliest you can do this is on the first Medium level.
