(possibly the hardest medium level) on youtube that has a perfect, but the creeps never ever moved down the middle when I followed it. Ended up I had to build several greens to "cup" two "Ys" to force them to go down the middle. Over 10 attempts, with trial and error eventually helping me to get through it perfectly.

Google "David Such" and you may find some image guides for some medium levels. Most of them work, but some aren't perfects as well, and it's incomplete. But still, more helpful than Mahalo videos that's for sure.
You guys are narbs. Make sure you change the setting in the options from Hardcore to Novice, that is what setting the video guides are on.

I used every Mahalo guide and only had to play each level once. Each solution worked perfectly. The swarm always followed the same path as in the videos. Before knocking the achievement guide and video guides, pay attention.

Thanks for the guide BTW! I agree on the 2/10 difficulty, but no way anyone is completing that in 2 hours. Using guides as efficiently as possible (I literally do not think you can beat the game any faster than I did), it took me 4-5 hours to complete the game. I would adjust the time to say 4-6 hours.
