Level 4 on Pokemon Tower Defense UPDATE

I must say that I am sorry about the confusion, level 4 is not completed yet, I'm going to make a small update that will make that more clear on the game, again sorry about that, I plan to have it done within a week so stay tuned. I guess while I'm here I'll also mention that the pokemon leveling is capped at level 10 for now, this cap will go up when level 6 of the game comes out. Thanks again for the great feedback! Keep it coming :D

I responded to the previous blog post in the comments here is my response:

"Thanks for the feedback guys, now time to answer some questions.

@Kevin, Bradly, Michelle, Ben - I posted a new blog entry about it, but your phones are not the problem the problem is that I haven't completed level 4, it will be coming in about a week, also evolving is implemented but since the level cap is at 10 only 2 pokemon can evolve right now (caterpie and weedle).

@Anonymous - Thanks, the reason I released it without finishing it is that it's going to take a good amount of time to get everything I want in there, so I rather people can start getting a taste of it and giving me their feedback so that I can make it better in the end."

  1. Loving the gameplay and the gameboy style graphics. Though the only thing I think that I would change is the image used for the app button/widget. It looks cheap when next to the other apps. Other than that keep up the great work and looking forward to the next update

  2. I really like the concept of the game and tremendously look forward to more levels, pokes, gym additions, etcetera. I however would suggest a less cheap looking icon, as well as perhaps an achievement page for completing certain levels under specified circumstances. Great game, keep it coming :)

  3. First of all, let me say: great game. Amazing in fact. But I have a few improvements for you.
    1. The ability to release pokemon would be good.
    2. The ability to remove pokemon from the 6 without having to log off would also help.
    3. When the pokemon hit a CRIT! at the end of the round, the CRIT! keeps flashing throughout the speech.
    4. During the evolution period, the battle music plays aswell as the awesome evolving music, making the moment less exciting.
    5. Could you maybe include a money bonus for the amount of rare candies left? That would be a nice touch. :)
    6. I would also like the dollar sign to be changed to a poke sign (the currency symbol in the games) but that's just me. :)
    7. And I like the way that you can choose a version, but when you make the game further, can you make every pokemon available to both? E.g. the caterpie/weedle available later?
    But seriously, great game. I know there's a lot of points there, but I'm just helping to make your game perfect. :) Well done to Sam! :D

  4. I'd love to see a skip button. The game is great, once there are more pokemon and stages it will rock. I just don't want to have to reread the entire dialogue every time I replay a stage :).

  5. Thanks for the great feedback, I plan to address most if not all of these very soon.

  6. Sam, could I email you some suggestions? I am a super slow phone typer XD please get back to me I have some great ideas

  7. 1 move the back button because it is in the exact same position as the next button and sometimes after a level when I am clicking on those next button on a text box I accidentally go back to the main page
    2 make it to where once you have already viewed the intro, or perhaps beaten the level, you can skip the storyline straight to the level
    3 when you click on the exit button in the bottom right during a level it should ask you if you are sure you want to leave, because I've accidentally exited out before when trying to use the poke ball to catch something
    4 change the money sign from dollars to poke dollars
    5 make poke mon releasable
    6 when you learn a move during a level the music shuts off
    7 maybe later have some pokes be rarer
    8 when poke mon evolve the background music is distracting from the evolution music
    9 I think there should be a faint circle around the poke mon to show the range of its attacks
    10 I think future levels should have their unique music from the game such as viridian forrest
    11 the level select screen is boring and forces you to scroll. I think maybe you should organize it in an angry birds fashion with a page over arrow instead of scrolling
    12 maybe later make it possible to re learn moves for poke mon
    13 I don't see any noticeable effects from confusion
    14 maybe make it to where one can buy music and other goodies with leftover money, or maybe even tm moves idk
    15 will there be a fossil difference for the two versions? Or a fossil at all?
    16 for poke mon that evolve through stones maybe you could purchase its evolution in a different way.

    I love the game and want to help better it as much as possible. Keep up the amazing work!!!

  8. Could it be possible to trad it to other languages such as French ? ( I am so I can help if needed )

    And could it be possible to add a " skip " option for each level's cut scene cause it's very boring to tap " next " like a bot :p

  9. I love this game it is awesome.it was a smart idea to mix pokemon with tower defense. if u need to know what level a pokemon learns a move our evolves u should go to seribii.net

    ReplyDelete
  10. Serebii.net and bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net are the main sources of information for this game and I use them pretty much the whole time while making levels etc.

    ReplyDelete
  11. When u unblock the level up what level will they be able to get 2

    ReplyDelete
  12. The level cap will be removed when level 6 comes out and it will be at level 20, eventually you will be able to reach level 100 just like the real games.

    ReplyDelete
  13. This game is the best thing that ever happened to anyone ever. It's great. And I CANNOT WAIT for the update = D
    A few things to point out: the catching mechanism's a little difficult to work, given that half the time, the pokemon faint before their energy reaches 'weak' level. Even if it went red after half the HP is drained?
    Also, seeing the whole field at once might be something to think about.
    Other than that, the game is PERFECT and you should so totally start dishing out the levels = D

    ReplyDelete
  14. @SchmEthan - Seeing the whole field is tough due to how small some phone screens are.

    It will be easier to capture them once they get tougher, also just like the game sometimes you want to use a weaker monster to make sure your target doesn't die before you can capture it. It adds challenge to the game in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have an idea for the game u should put a pokedex in the game and another thing u should put rares in the game that u can catch once like moltress

    ReplyDelete
  16. @Anonymous - Rares will be in the game, pokedex is probably not worth the time that I don't get to work on levels, maybe once the game is done I can add that in. :D

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ya that would be kinda a waist of time. Sorry about the anonymous thing that's the only way I know how to post comments

    ReplyDelete
  18. I know it will take a long time to make all the levels but when u make the last level and a person beats the game I think they should be able to make a pokemon shiney if they want

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Anonymous - sounds like a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have another idea maybe when u defeat a pokemon they might drop an item like an x attack or a random pokemon egg

    ReplyDelete
  21. It deleted from my market

    ReplyDelete
  22. can u make some wild pokemon shiney in levels at random

    ReplyDelete
  23. you should be able to buy more slots and better pokeballs in the pokemart

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  34. Can't wait for the next upgrade! I also really wanna' get my Charmeleon to lvl 36, so he can evolve! Please keep making upgrades!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Really good, but could you make the price for evolution stones cheaper? Also, when are you going to update the game?? I've been waiting for a long time!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Can you make a trade center because I can't find anyone who plays this game and I also suggest something like at a certain point of the game you can buy a shiny of some sort.

    ReplyDelete
  37. hey sam you should upgrade the trading system so you dont have to exchange codes with people ok so like i was trading a weedle and i wanted a abra i could trade weedle and select what i want: abra and after a certain amount of time i check my account and i see i got an abra from a different person. so that is an idea how to upgrade your trading system

    ReplyDelete
  38. When you make different pokeballs please make it possible to BUY MASTERBALLS cause I hate it when in my pokemon diamond i have so much extra money but i cant but a masterball. Anyway, awesome game. and by the way could you increase The level cap to 45 and make some legendaries like mewtwo catchable. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hey luv the game, is gonna be huge just keep it comming lol. A few suggestions how about:

    1. Some sort of auto buff feature? I like what you have done with some of the moves, making things like string shot useful however; certain moves such as focus energy have to be reapplied manually which gets a bit annoying quickly.
    As for implentation perhaps you could have a double click feature or...

    2. Add a sidebar with all of the combined pokemon moves. Well two sets of 3 move sets on each side would be kl. Maybe do it in that calming blue shade that shows the range of your pokemon and appears when you position them.
    - This would be useful because it would allow you to plan your next action based on the team and not just individual pokemon. To freeze the game you click and hold down on the menu and when you release the move you highlighted is chosen. There would need to be a blank space so that you could chose nothing if need be but im sure you get the idea.
    I also think you should try to represent...

    3. More stats. obviously just a few at first but maybe over time it could evole, (hehe sorry that was so bad) Anyway stats could be practical as well as just being a useful source of increasing power. For example if you have over 80 speed your range increases slightly, until you reach the next speed cap. To view the stats there could be a stats tab which is made visible when you click on the individual pokemon.
    It could also display options such as...

    4. (last one) Target strong, weak, first and last. I love that feature of tower defence 4, you could implement it but with pokemon style. Maybe auto target pokemon that have weakness to the attack your pokemon is about to perform, shorten to weakness. Also they could be stackable and so a priority system would exsit where they attack strong first, and attack weakness second.

    I hope that you think about using any of these feature if you havent got them already. Keep up the good work =p.

  44. i love this game but i have some suggestions which i think might improve the game

    1. Make shadow pokemon appear in the wild
    2. Add some new pokemon like piplup,Lucario,Palkia,Darkrai,Deoxys,Dialga,Giratina,Arceus
    3. Better quality for the three legendary dogs(Entei,Suicune,Raikou)
    4. More slots for pokemon when battling, now it is at 6 but i would like it to be at 8 or even 10
    5. This is simular to trading with people except you are trading with the computer for example: you click on pokemon center(whatever you are goin to call it) and you either switch your pokemon with another pokemon for a certain amount of time or you can buy with the money you have in the game
    I hope you use this because it make the game far more enjoyable(espiacally number 2)
