Hi all,

I just finished the Imbellus and it was quite challenging and enjoyable.

There were 2 parts:

1. Ecosystem building: This part is same as what most other source say. In my case, i got 7 species that would be sustainable and 1 left over plant species that serve no purpose. Would this be a bad thing?

2. Invasive species (Tower Defense): There were 3 game scenarios. One of the part, 2nd part, i thought i had put the defender but actually didnt which resulted in early ending within 10 turns. The first part i survived a bit after 15 turns whereas the 3 parts i survived quite long after 15 turns.

Based on this performance, would I pass?

Hi there,

  1. I know candidates who did the same (one plant left without connections to the others) and they passed. I believe ideally you should use all in a chain though
  2. I know candidates who did not manage to resist 15 turns in one of the games and passed. Thus you may still pass the game

If you have other questions please feel free to PM me.

Hope this helps,

Francesco

#1 If you want to steal, don’t do that publicly ;). #2 If you steal the guide you lose all the bonuses it includes (worth right now up to $458). #3 We use a tracker for the guide and if you steal it you are liable for copyright infringement. #4 Don’t forget Karma – what you give in life is what you get
