Mineral Treatment is the third stage in Above & Below.
- After 3.3 seconds100f, 9 Wall Doges will be spawned, followed by an Elder Sloth (at 26.7 seconds800f mark).
- If 3 Wall Doges are killed, they will be replaced by Elder Sloths while the rest are Those Guys when the battle had been on for 50 seconds.
To beat this stage, you can go with meatshields when the Wall Doges come out.
If you have a long ranged cat like Radiant Aphrodite or a cat with Shockwave ability, that would be great.
After a while, when the Wall Doges are down, the Elder Sloth number will become 4. To beat them use fast attackers or long-range attacker cats. When the job is done, you can now destroy the base.
You can cheese this level. Simply use meatshields and Warlock & Pierre to hit the base, but make sure that W&P will not get hit by Elder Sloths too.
Strategy 1 (Cheese ft. Zamboney and Major Leaguer)
Use Maniac Macho, Maniac Eraser, Eraser, Zamboney, and Major Leaguer, along with health up combos.
At the start spawn a maniac eraser and then zamboney when you have enough cash, and then continue to meatshield. When you have enough money spawn major leaguer. The major leaguer should miss the wall doges and hit the base. Stack up major leaugers until you win.
guide(rich cat not necessary)
Cheese 2 (ft. Sharpshooter Saki)
For 2 & 3 star stages the Elder Sloth and Wall Doges creep up on your Major Leaguer. I found this consistently easier.
Lineup: 4 meat shields and Sharpshooter Saki)
Combos: Lingerie Special, Two as One, Koi And Dragon or another Cat Cannon Recharge Up combo.
Cat Cannon: Breaker Blast
You'll want to save up enough for Sharpshooter Saki while spamming 3-4 meatshields. Use Breaker Blast when available and you should be able to hold the Wall Doges pinned to their base. Once you spawn Saki she will be out of range, but once you fire the cannon she will move up enough to hit the base for 73k damage a shot. The stage will be over in about 2 minutes.
Rich Cat is useful, but unnecessary.
Cheese 3 (ft. Nerd Cat)
This cheese is most suited for 1 star, for people who do not have Zamboney/Major Leaguer. Note: This may be difficult if your Erasers are underleveled.
Line 1: Eye of the Storm (Combo) [Bronze Cat, Rope Jump Cat, Space Cat, Clockwork Cat, Hoop Cat]
This combo is used to boost the health of any underleveled meatshields.
Line 2: Manic Eraser (I used Level 28), Eraser (20+22), Gato Amigo (26), Nerd Cat(27+3)[Hacker/Cyberpunk does not work]
Cannon and Powerups: Do not use cannon, Rich Cat is recommended, do not use Sniper.
Strategy: Stall the first Wall Doges with Manic Eraser, then start spawning both Erasers when the rest of the Wall Doges appear. Spawn Nerd Cats whenever you can. Nerd Cat is used for its single target attack, as the goal is to destroy the base without taking out the Wall Doges.
When the Wall Doges are out of range of Nerd Cat, start spawning Gato Amigo to keep them from advancing too much. However, do not spam Gato Amigo as they will slowly damage the Wall Doges (This is the difficult part of the cheese). The Nerd Cat(s) should destroy the base before any of the Wall Doges die, although it's fine if one or two die right at the end.
If your Erasers cannot keep the Wall Doges back without Gato Amigo killing them, you can try using another meatshield (preferably 75¢ and low damage).

Strategy 4 (4-star)
This strategy requires literally no effort. Kill the Wall Doges in the beginning (use attackers like Cameraman or Cyborg). Then spawn in Cat God The Awesome and meatshield until he eventually destroys the base.
