Forum Tower Defense
By: BoltBait

The forum has been overrun by smilies. Your job is to rid the forum of these pests by building towers to get in their way and to destroy them.

Based on Desktop Tower Defense as seen at



I will be posting various versions of this project to my test account so that you can see the progress of the project as I am building it. I will include notes describing what was added at each step. Once the game is done, I'll post to my main account.

Step 1: (3 hours)
I always start a project by creating the graphics. So...
-Design the stage background using graphics found at the Scratch Forums.
-Grab the smilies from the Scratch Forum.

Step 2: (2 hours)
-Made a graphic to hide the score frames
-Added some sound effects
-Bad guy graphic changes by level

Step 3: (2 hours)
-Wrote the script for the mouse
-Place Towers script written
-Towers can be upgraded

Step 4: (2 hours)
-Added karma costs to scripts
-Updated place tower script add to maze
-Updated bullet script to goto tower
-Added a few comments
-Wrote RecalcPath script (in normal mode it runs about 5 seconds, in turbo mode less than a second!)

Remember, at this stage, there is only 1 tower, one creep, and one bullet. Once these scripts are finalized, I'll copy them lots of times.

Also, this game will definitely be designed for Turbo mode. If you're using the new Flash player, shift-click the Green Flag to enable turbo mode. I will have to write a turbo mode detector so that if you aren't in turbo mode, you will be shown how to enable it. This will be part of the splash screen.
