Last Line of Defense

by ovenchips - Compo Entry

You command the last remaining battalion in Molkraine, under attack from the neighboring Sovian Federation. Defeat looms but you are your country's Last Line of Defense! So what if they get you? Hold out for as long as you can and take as many of them down with you.

This is a Tower Defense game. I should have guessed how hard it would be to make a game like this in 48 hours. Oh well, live and learn! :o)

It was made with PlayCanvas, the fancy cloud-based game engine. I used BFXR.net for the audio effects.

The base should have some health and not instantly die.

Hi there. Looks like a good start. Impressed with what playcanvas can do. Nice to have so much there already. Would be good to have more resources at start and more enemies, builds a bit slowly. Good job!

I love tower defense games. First I thought this was too easy it nicely progressed more harder. I survived 7:26.

Nice implementation, but I must be doing something wrong as I can't afford more than two turrets and get killed by the second wave every time.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
