Tips:

  • Enemies come at 5pm and leave at 6am, spawning from all corners of the map
  • There are 30 waves, every 10th wave is a difficult wave, but gives you a long time to rebuild
  • Build a farm to increase food and smart machine to get upgrades
  • Build wood makers and upgrade their spawn chance to maximize wood
  • Kill units with your worker, build towers and upgrade chance to get that sweet gold on kill
  • There are 3 tiers of buildings
  • Tier 1 unlocks the fundamentals walls, towers, income, etc
  • Tier 2 unlocks healing, aura towers and powerful AOE towers, but require mana wells.
  • Tier 3 unlocks the ability to suck in wood and gold, and other advanced towers.
  • New Tiers are unlocked with upgrades.

Seems like you've used a custom model that you have not credited: Resources in Use by Barrens TD [1.7] | HIVE I think you should use the undead summon instead (be sure to make the unit undead) so that the buildings will be automatically made....

    Review:

    - One tip should be added both to the description and changelog: build buildings using shift hold botton. Had to figure out myself.
    -Round indication is imperative needed, you can looose track on wich round you are.
    - A timer indicating next round would be great, if not, something cheap like incoming...
    - a killer counter would also make this more nice.

    Wile I really like the idea, really, those wall towers are very nice. I dont like the defend your peon thing.

    -I did many square layouts to protect the good buildings, as you show in the screens, you can loose even by having a lot of towers.
    In almost all the plays the peon get surrounded by thousands of units, if the teleport timer is stil counting, the peon is dead, it cant run, also the teleport distance is short.

    -I think teleport should be low timedown . to re cast, that would save

    -I think this map would be much more fun if instead of defend the peon, it would be a defend a fixed building in the midle, and peon flyer and invulnerable, so you can build freely and build-rebuild while they are doing an oppening in your defenses, is very hard to propely wall all sizes of the square, at that point, a second builder may be nice if playing alone.

    -first 5 rounds should be more easy, and make it hell from level 12-15 and above
    so people can get notion of the play, the first round already surounds you a lot

    -I am not shure if this can be win, I hope it is, it has a lot of replay value

    I can win elemental tower TD, but many others TD not, even they do give a lot of fun

    you should provide playable hints, the screens helps, but it is also important to have the peon inside the square to avoid being killed. it can be surrounded and killed outside the base
    also is better to do very small squares than big ones, because you dont have much time to build big, I did a 9 square, 1 lumber mill 8 archers, and a wall to the archers, then another square it was good, but then lost.

    IMO

    To me this is a 3/5 and awaiting update

    to approved

    - Is mandatory a form to know wich wave/round you are, you loose track of that, and is not a good thing. (all TD tell you round 12/30, 16/30).
    -cooldown of the teleport of the peon set to 8-12 secs and increase the distance a bit, to avoid being surrounded and killed (because that is a KO situation) wile you can have a great base of towers.

    dont feel discouraged, I really like your TD it requires few things to be approved, but in terms of quality is far away from elemental tower td or pokemon tower td.

    good luck and see ya

    Hey mate, thanks for the review, a few points,

    Check the food count to see what round you are on

    The cooldown and range increases as you upgrade your peasant, also gives a lot more survivability and damage.

    The enemy comes at night and leaves by day (exact times in quests screen), you can see the time if you hover over the day/night icon at top of screen

    I did have it like this initially, but found that people got easily bored, unless they had a good challenge right from the get go. They can always play again if they like the map.

    Anyway, thanks again for the review,

    opiemonster

    "Check the food count to see what round you are on"

    that should be added to the description in this thread, but yes I missed that it was in the changelog.

    "The cooldown and range increases as you upgrade your peasant, also gives a lot more survivability and damage."
    I see.
    I am more with the orthodox TD, invulnerable towers, invulnerable builder, a set paths to the waves, imposible to block the creep waves paths with towers,
    and protect something.

    Your game is more survival than a common TD IMO (considering the first wc3 TD made by blizzard)

    Maybe it should be Barrens Survival, instead of Barrens TD, because as TD I would expect an Orthodox TD, but well that your call.

    I just recently played Stronghold TD remastered and I found it as an Orthodox TD.

    edit: yes your map is more similar to Uber Survival than a TD map. Uber Survival! 0.5



    well I have to recognice that I am not very familiar with survival games, and I probably bias about the teleport cooldown.

    It should be set to approve.

    1. I think you should use the undead summon instead (be sure to make the unit undead) so that the buildings will be automatically made.
    2. Because the enemy units belong to one player only and maybe they are all sent in the same group, they stutter if they're too many on the map at once. Read about it in the links of this post: Santa vs. Evil 1.3
    3. No idea what BrainZZZ and Get Lit are as requirements. Please write a more informative map thread description.
    4. All enemies named DaBadi.
    5. Maybe make 1 or less player modes too.
    6. Healer's Heal doesn't say how much it heals.
    7. Defence Aura upgrade should have the active form of the icon as it is not a passive ability but an upgrade.
    8. Damage Panda's damage aura has the active icon instead of the passive.
    9. Buildings deactivate randomly. I mean, the wells restore randomly even if you have a or two for each building. To compensate you need high level mana upgrade.
    10. You could mention the max number of an upgrade either in its title or description.
    The concept itself is crazy. TD lovers would like it probably.

    Approved.

    ADDITIONAL NECESSARY INFORMATION
    • A credits list in the map thread description is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated too.
    • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
    • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.

    Awesome man, thanks for the review!

    I totally forgot about the credit for the archer, that's totally my bad

    Yea I thought about this, but at the moment, the game tuning is built around time spent building and I do think some people like the feel of having to 'build' as a apposed to the undead way. I did make the build time very low, and it even increases as you upgrade your peasant though.



    Yep I know about this one, there actually is 4 AI players, but I changed their color and name to be all the same

    The max number is in the title of the upgrade e.g. Wood Upgrade [3] (but I should probably make it more pronounced)


    Generally, there is plenty of polishing to do, but the main idea is there, so I decided to get it out there. Anyway, thanks a lot for the review.

    Cheers,

    Opiemonster.

    You can use custom resources because there are super plenty and tons of stuff here.
