This is a great template for making a full tower defense game for iOS or Android. All the main features you would expect from a tower defense game have been implemented and it should be nice and easy to expand upon and improve ready for your own release! Features include:
- Easy level creation process
- Enemy movement/Sprites
- Scoring/Health/Money system
- 10 Example levels
- Multiple placeable towers with upgrades
- DIRECTOR and STORYBOARD examples for screen transitions.
***Version 2 Added***
The download now includes a bonus version 2 of the Tower Defense game. This includes various improvements, such as; a larger playable area, easier level creation and some changes to the code structure. The largest difference is the use of A* Pathfinding for figuring out the enemies routes at the beginning of each level. This essentially makes it easier for you to create new levels as you no longer have to set the actual waypoints for the enemy movement, instead now all you have to do is lay out a road for them to follow. Please bear in mind that that is the only time A* Pathfinding is used in this template, it does NOT work out new routes when you place a tower as we use a set path in this template. This version is essentially a free bonus addition to this download as it uses Lerg’s pathfinding module, version 1 is the main part of this download and that is what you pay for.
The code was written in Lua for CoronaSDK version 2012.868 and the download includes the full source code, images, PSD and sound files. The code is fully commented and if you have any particular questions about a bit you don’t understand i’d be more than happy to explain.
If the code doesn’t run on your version of Corona then i would suggest upgrading to a newer version. The sprites in this template make use of the api call “graphics.newImageSheet” which only newer versions of Corona will have. The images for this template were created by myself, Vicki Wenderlich and Silviu, a freelance graphics designer. If you want to use the exact same towers and enemies used in this template for your own project you would need to link to Silviu.
