I'm making this game in C++ called Defense. You can download the latest version at: http://www.anticure.com/defense And I have also released the source code for version 1.1 here: http://www.anticure.com/defense/CodeRelease110.zip The main idea of the game is to defend your command center from the attacking armies. You use a variety of turrets, airstrikes, and defenses to stop them. I would like some feedback and/or suggestions for my game. Please post your comments! ----[Red Haze]---- [edited by - Red Haze on November 20, 2003 9:30:07 PM]

That game is REALLY REALLY REALLY fun. You MUST have played the Castle shockwave game because it''s very similar.

Major suggestion would obviously be graphics. Other things like a health bar for your command center and a little more weapon variety would be great. Perhaps even allow for purchase of fortifications.

All in all, great game! I''m gonna go give it another go after I eat.

Yeah, I did get a little inspiration from the Castle game at XGenStudios.com

I am currently in the process of upgrading the graphics too, I already got a better explosion and tank for the next release. The health bar on the command center is also a good idea, but my brother already suggested it a day ago =)

Maybe you could give people a reason to shut off turrets (there was no reason I could see) Maybe it costs power to run them, or a limited supply of ammo. If you go the power supply route, allow for the construction of power generators. You''d be in a lot of trouble if the enemy managed to destroy one of those generators.

Also, how about loading turrets with different ammo? I think it''d be cool to load up turrets with explosive ammo, or maybe some sort of concussive ammo that would knock the enemy backwards. Heck, what about a barracks building that would deploy your own infantry?

I think I''m getting a little ahead of myself now..

Actually, the main reason I let you turn off turrets was for testing and debugging purposes...

A lot of your ideas sound pretty good, the infantry idea I might try to implement.

Well, it looks like a fun game, but unfortunately it runs slower than my patience will put up with. On the map screen it''s fine: 60-70 FPS. Every other screen drops to 6 or 7 FPS. I''d be interested in trying it again if you can get it running at a decent speed. Here''s my specs.

AMD Duron 1.3 ghz
512 MB RAM
GeForce4 Ti 4200
WinXP
