Missing the Sell-Button. Is it better to Upgrade or to buy new towers???

Sorry about the lack of a sell button. Upgrading increases firing rate and damage, while new towers increase firing range; however, if you have new towers, then the upgrades are better allowing for a lot more damage. The challenge of the game is micro-managing in order to balance upgrades to new towers. And seriously, if I told you everything that would ruin the fun wouldn\'t it?

i found the game not very balanced. [SPOILER ALARM] with no waste to cheap guns, try to build uber-gun in center as soon as possible. i had it with 2 blue, 1 yellow (with some live loss). rest ~40 levels goes boring with no-stress buildind 3 more uber-guns.
