Easy "Diversity" Achievement Guide

You must have all tower types present when you win a mission. As you progress through a mission, place any remaining tower types somewhere on the map. If needed, sell your extra towers when only a few enemies are remaining to get more. This can be done in Story mode during the "Standing Order" mission, where you get all towers. It can also be done during the early missions in Fully Loaded mode.

Easy "Full House" Achievement Guide

You must have all tower types present and upgraded to level 3 when you win a mission. At least 12,825 resources will be required to construct and upgrade all tower types. If needed, sell your extra towers when only a few enemies are remaining to get more. This can be done in Story mode during the "Standing Order" mission, where you get all towers. It may also be attempted in Practice mode during missions that feature a large amount of resources. A more difficult method may be during the early missions in Fully Loaded mode. Although you may have all towers and upgrades unlocked, resources may be scarce.

Easy "The Long Road" Achievement Guide

Play the "Last Stand" map in the Awakening campaign. It features a lot of platforms, with each platform having two bridges going out in each direction, as well as having many tower squares. Select Practice mode to start with 40,000 credits. Secure the top-right platform by building some level 3 towers, then start constructing a long maze. The maze design consists of a tower square between every pair of bridges, making it easy to split platforms into two parts so that enemies will enter from one bridge, walk across the platform and through the rest of the maze, then eventually return and go across the other bridge. Begin from the core platform by selecting one its bridges as the entrance, then extend the path one platform at a time. Using about 50% of the platforms in the maze should be enough. You do not need to build anything complicated. Keeping straight lines and 90 degree turns is sufficient.
