Woah! You can see everything from up here! Too bad there's nothing to see but the empty, sand-filled desert. If you squint, though, you can count the zombies dragging themselves towards the town.

Uses[edit]

  • Visit the tower in town to contribute towards an estimation of tonight's attack. 24 citizens are required to produce a complete estimation.
    • The Item tagger.gifItem tagger.gifScanner Scanner reduces the requirement from 24 to 12.
    • The Item tagger.gifItem tagger.gifPredictor Predictor allows an estimation of tomorrow's attack to be made after today's is at maximum estimation.
  • At level 1 or above, the tower will automatically reveal zombie numbers and the presence of buildings in a given radius around the town.
  • Once the tower is level 4 or above, an option in zones near the town will appear that allows people to teleport directly back into town, saving up to 3 Small pa.gif.
    • You can teleport out of a zone where you do not have Small dom equal.gifSmall dom equal.gifControl Points Control or even when you are Status terror.gifStatus terror.gifTerrorised Terrorised.
    • If the gates are closed, the teleport function gained by upgrades will teleport you back to square (0,0) (The Small door closed.gifSmall door closed.gifTown Gates Town Gates), although you will not be able to enter the town until the gates have been opened.
    • With Small labyrinth.gifSmall labyrinth.gifLabyrinth Labyrinth constructed, the teleport function allows citizens to bypass the Small pa.gif cost of entering the town through conventional means, the gates. It teleports you straight in instead.
      • It is impossible, however, to teleport back from (0,0): you'll have to spend 1 Small pa.gif on entering from there.
      • Thus, it is possible to get stuck trying to search the refuse with the last Small pa.gif.
