EvoTD

by Jeremy1080 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

EvoTD is the next generation of tower defense games, where towers will evolve with experience, crushing the enemy in its path!

Just click on Web to get playing now!

Hey guys! So EvoTD is a tower defense game that I created, in which the towers will evolve as they get experience with damaging the enemy. The game is a Java applet so it can be run on most any system, and all the instructions are in the game! Have fun!

I really enjoyed this game.
although I do not regularly play TowerDefenses.
It was addicting to keep playing and I might play it again later only thing is music gets a bit annoying and repetitive!

You can turn it off :D That's why I added the settings on the right hand side!

It wasn't really clear where the enemies were going to enter, so I ended up placing my towers at the end the first time. Not really a problem, but kinda confusing. The process of evolution for the towers seemed like a pretty standard thing for TD games. A serviceable TD game without much new stuff, but I did like the orbital motion of the towers.

Thank you very much! And I was worried about that, so I thought I put it in the description in game that they would be coming from the bottom, I must have missed that, sorry about that! But thank you for your feed back! And ya I liked the evolution idea of the towers myself, because most TD's have you upgrade towers with coins, but I took it a step further and made the towers evolve with experience :D

I really liked this TD. By wave 30, I felt the game could have moved a little faster. I'll leave it up and mess with survival mode for a bit :) The sound effects are quite mellow and not sfxr, good work.

Thank you so much! And by faster what do you mean? There is a fast forward button on the top right corner! :) Thank you for playing it!

Simple TD. "Evolving" without branching seems pretty typical of TD games. I only lasted to the second wave where a whole stream of guys got by while I had 0 gold and 4 blue towers.

It's all about placement! You gotta make sure you have towers that can hit as many blocks at a time as possible!

I found this game absolutely enjoyable. To be able to place towers and let them level themselves was a great idea.

Thanks! And seeing that message popup about them evolving gives you that, YES! Kinda feeling!

Really nice job!
I love TDs, and one thing that I always have in mind while playing one is "Why can't those damned towers upgrade themselves?" Well, these surely can!

Good job! (:

Loving the crazy particle effects going on here. ;) Also a nice idea having the towers upgrade by themselves. I went about 20 waves in before calling it quits... I'd really like to see you add to this game with additional/evolving enemies, and maybe even a feature where towers end up evolving into other towers... anyway, nice work!

I died a few times heading into level 4 or 5, but once I got the hang of it I ended up annihilating them! Very well done, especially in just two days, nice!!!

Thank you all so much! I wanted to challenge myself and make something I have never before, and a TD was just that! If you guys want to see the progress I made as I did it check out my blog! sayersj.com!

I made it to level 172. I love TDs and this one is pretty good. There's a dramatic difference in damage between 'clockwise' corners and 'anticlockwise' ones, which is non-obvious.

It's a nice game, but not really about Evolution.

Wow really great job! And I tried tying it in with evolution as much as possible! That's why I have the towers evolve! Thanks for playing!

Game was really bland as far as tower defenses go. No real differentiation between towers (where were the slow, AoE, stun, etc.). Different levels would've been nice. Would've liked a refund to sell back towers, or at least an "undo" in case you accidentally placed a tower.

Music was nice, sound effects were effective without being in your face.

Thanks! And there is a destroy button for when you place towers on accident! Thanks for the review!

Nice game!
I don't undersand why earth tower range is "medium".

Well done. The blood splats are a nice touch.

Very fun game! It's great to have a complete game (with sound even!) and I really like how the towers evolve! By looking at how quickly they are evolving I can see if I put them in good or bad spots. The game feels complete, with a menu and even several modes. Congratulations!

Thank you guys so much! All the support is making me even more excited for the next LD48!

there is a destroy button, but you lose all that money, thereby usually making you have to restart

"I don't undersand why earth tower range is "medium"."
Me too. The only thing I see is that they got more damage but they are slower and only have two "bubbles".

So I only built Blaze towers.
