Kobold Cave

Submitted by BLOT ink
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
In this game, you are the monsters and the computer controls the heroes.

As a kobold, you can dig into the side of the mountain to create your own cave. In your cave, you can build other buildings to improve your cave and combine items you find in the rock to create a powerful defense against the oncoming heroes.

The heroes, controlled by the computer, will periodically attack and kill your hordes of expendable kobold fodder with battle cries like "lol ownage" and "i r 1337."

Thanks to communist_orc for the spike trap model.

Enjoy Kobold Cave!

    [+] -
    [!] -
    [-] - Lot's of leak trigger
    [-] - Hotkey error detected, (Lumber Pit skill) Destroy Skill hotkey "D" not function.

    Review : First of all, the trigger have leak. In addition to that, I found out there is a hotkey that ain't working.

    The worst part is to make those AI spawn in within 3 minutes (Refer to 1st waves). 3 minutes is only enough to time to destroy enough destructible to make spawn only, try to set it to 5 minutes instead.

    And it seems like you used a import model, but did not give credit to the original author of the resources.

    This game quite boring after been play 2-3 times.

    The game is cool in concept but it lacks a lot of things.

    1. Not enough buildings (Traps)
    2. The Heroes will some times get kinda lost, and just stand somewhere until they are attacked making it really easy to just stay out of their sight.
    3. The cost effectiveness of getting fighters needs to be reworked, they are almost never worth it.

    A couple of things I did like.
    1. The ability to craft some cool things with items though they need more items to combine.
    2. The masses of fodder were pretty fun.
    3. The ability to mine out your own base was very cool.

    And my absolutely favorite thing.
    The lava!

    I ended up clearing all of the lava on the map with my masses of kobolds.

    At first I figured the lava would do damage over time or you would need the invuln potion to get across but when I tried I found out what really happens. That led to the best part of the game, the "Crossing".

    Not that nooby on noob difficulty. It also contains annoying comments and lines.
