The key to winning the game is to find the balance between powering up your heroes and preventing Debtzilla from becoming too strong:
Powering up your heroes too quickly by over borrowing money to buy gadgets will allow you to defeat Villains quickly and prevent citizen bankruptcy. However, your borrowings will grow Debtzilla's power more, speeding up Debt Apocalypse.
Powering up your heroes too slowly by saving money conservatively will allow villains to run rampant and bankrupt too many citizens, leading to defeat as Debtzilla will quickly wipe out the few surviving citizens
To win the game, all heroes are to work as a team and take on the below duties to maximize the chance of killing the ultimate boss - Debtzilla
Early Game hero - Borrows money aggressively and buy gadgets early to prevent villains from running rampant.
Late Game hero - Starts slow but build up a strong cashflow to buy powerful Gadgets to take out difficult villains and Debtzilla later in the game.
Support hero - Focuses on slowing down Debtzilla by paying down debt and buying team support gadgets. Generally weak during fights.
Specialist hero - Specializes in clearing difficult villains with weak points such as "0" and "7" that is outside of the normal dice range.
Once you have taken out Debtzilla, challenge a even more difficult boss: Instead of debt, Inflationsaurus feeds on luxury spendings and team discipline is key in defeating it.
