Pokemon Tower Defense: Level 6 progress, Weekly Updates, and more.

UPDATE 3: Level is about 85.111233232% done! About an hour if everything goes smoothly!

UPDATE 2: Update is still coming tonight, just a heads up this next level is going to be a free roam level, meaning no candy, you can capture everything in the level, bunch of waves. The levels are design as a good way to level up and capture pokemon, however no money will be awarded in the free roam levels. If I have some extra time I will include 2 free roam levels in this update so that it's easier to get pikachu.


UPDATE: This next update will be done by Sunday night the latest, won't be done today Saturday :( Thanks for your patience.

Hey guys! It's me again, so it looks like most of you want the updates to come on a weekly basis (me too!). I think that looking forward to an update on a weekly basis is fun, it reminds me of waiting each week for my favorite tv show to come on so I can watch it. Out of 2442 (I swear this thing got reset or something) 21% wanted monthly big juicy updates but, 78% wanted weekly quick updates!

This next poll is about where you play the game, I'm interest to see which version I should focus on more.

I'm making a list for level 6 so you guys can see where the progress is at, I must note that coming up with a level probably takes longer than actually making it.

New Pokemon, with all Moves up to lvl 20:
  • Spearow with 3 new moves (100% done)
  • Nidoran Male with 1 new move (100% done)
  • Nidoran Female with 1 new move (100%, done)
  • Jigglypuff with 4 new moves (100% done)
  • Mankey with 3 new moves (100% done) (Not doing the move Covet since there are no items)
New Evolutions with all Moves up to lvl 20:
  • Nidorina no new moves (100% done)
  • Nidorino no new moves (100% done)
  • Fearow no new moves (100% done)
Also don't forget to get your Shiny Starter, by donating any amount you will receive a code that you can put in the mystery gift and change your starter into a shiny. Also if you donate 10 or more you will also get rare candies and evolutions stone, finally if you donate 20 or more you will get all the previous gifts plus your very own shiny Mew!  To donate click on the donate button on the top right corner of the page.

NOTE: I'm currently giving out the shiny starters the other gifts will be given out at a later date.

A fan of the game, Peter Thompson, wrote a great article that has to do with this game. You guys should check it out ! http://thompsonpeters.blogspot.com/2011/03/whats-in-game-would-roselia-by-any.html

Also I'm making a tab with the latest links to the game, so that it's easier to find, but I will post them here just in case.

  1. LOL, I am soo glad that I discovered your game the day before it was removed! Anyway, that poll is a tough decision... Even if it were on the browser I could play on my phone but I actually prefer both browser and apk so I can still play on the computer and on my phone without opening the browser.

    LOTS of thanks for the game and weekly updates (:
    Definitely my favorite game from the Android market.

  2. This game looks awesome, but I cant play it. Whenever I go to it with a web browser, it just shows a black box with the words "FPS: 0" in the top corner. I tried installing the adk on my phone, but it wont install. Anyone else having this problem?

    ReplyDelete
  3. How do you know when we donate. If we email you can we do something to show proof?

    ReplyDelete
  4. @Jenny - I'll always support both, its just little bugs and things that I want to know which one will have priority for those fixes. Thanks.

    @Anonymous - Try updating to the latest flash player, that seems to help people with that same problem. Also your phone will need Adobe Air in order to play the game.

    @G-man - When you donate make sure to put your correct email, that way I will get an email that you donated and I will email you back the code. Really don't need to send proof unless you really want to.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I play on both the browser and on my phone. Just as an idea maybe keep updating the online version every week and every month or so update the .apk.

    Thanks, and keep up the great work!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I use the apk only and I think that you should continue to update both... the browser version requires me to tap the screen in order to play. The apk on the other hand is amazing! I love the game and I am looking forward to more updates and the new game you're working on! Hope this leads to a very nice career as a game designer.

    I have an idea for picking the levels instead of scrolling through then chooseing, why do you make your own pokemon map and then we have to click the routes. alot less scrolling.

    ReplyDelete
  8. When the update comes will we have to start over ? Cameren

    ReplyDelete
  9. Are you adding evolutionary stones to the game soon?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Still loving the game. Btw I noticed that if you google "pokemon tower defense" this game is getting a lot of publicity. It is showing up on a lot of game sites. Looks like an instant classic. Thanks for updating the apk!

    ReplyDelete
  11. @Everybody - Hey guys I'm going out for a bit, going to a college film festival with my brother (hes into making movies), I'll be back later to answer everything and get the updates out. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I found your game on New Grounds the exact same day you put it up, I have to say.. I am thoroughly impressed. I love Tower Defense games and I love Pokemon, so its a double win. I have since made two files, Caught all and max leveled all the Pokemon available and am looking forward to this next update. I plan to Donate as soon as I'm able, this is a cause which I will support. Just keep the updates rolling in. Also, I was curious to know. Do you plan on putting in the Pokemon league?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Is the browser the website thing because I hate that I like the download because I got far in. that and I can just press the icon and play

    ReplyDelete
  14. the apk file is the one you download

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have an idea for 10 doller donators they should be able to have an item u could give a pokemon to make it shiny additional to the shiny stater

    ReplyDelete
  16. Just a couple questions about the game, which I still love so much c:

    Is there going to be another way to get stones later, or is donating going to be the only way to get Raichu, Vaporeon, Jolteon, etc?

    Some new attacks (Twin Needle and Hyper Fang) don't have a speed listed. Are they speed 18, which seems to be the normal speed for attacks?

    ReplyDelete
  17. I do have to say that this game has captivated me...yet again I have found myself drawn to the pokeverse...I have been awaiting the updates with such eagerness that I found myself wanting to play the original games while I wait...that being said my psp will proudly host emerald while my anticipation continues to grow

    ReplyDelete
  18. What if I done 20 over a few weeks like 10 one week and 10 another

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh and will I be able to use the codE for the shiny in both the website and the apk

    ReplyDelete
  20. Facebook/twiter/MySpace(if anyone uses that anymore) page would be a good idea. To also help new people find this game as we'll as post other new info about the game. Good idea?

    ReplyDelete
  21. the code will work for both, however you do need to be connected to the internet for it to work when you enter the code...

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great game! Just one thing that you may want to look into, when a pokemon is learning a move and you agree to forget an old one you can't go back. For example, say the option to learn stun spore comes up and you agree, then change your mind. You can't, you're stuck learning stun spore. May be worth looking into backing out on that

    ReplyDelete
  23. it was that way in all of the pokemon games too...he hasn't changed anything from that...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sam my mom keeps deleting the password on her email so can you plz send it to mine at myspace.justin@yahoo.com plz and thank you

    ReplyDelete
  25. what program do i use for the apk.

    ReplyDelete
  26. @Anon "what program do i use for the apk."

    It's for Android smart phones.
    You go to settings, click Applications, check the Unknown sources box.

    Use a file explorer to find your apk file that you put on your phone after downloading from the internet.

    Open and install apk file.

    ReplyDelete
  27. @jenny

    I did all that but i couldn't install it. how do I do that.

    ReplyDelete
  28. @Anon

    What are the steps that you did?
    Here's another breakdown:

    1. Download the apk file given from Sam's post (megaupload link)

    2. Put apk file in your Android phone's SD card

    3. On your phone, go to settings -> Applications

    4. Allow for Unknown Sources (the box needs to be checked).

    5. Download a file explorer app from the market if you don't have one. I use Astro

    6. Find your apk file in Astro. The apk file should be called PokeTD

    7. Click it. Pop up should appear, giving the options: "Browse File" or "Open App Manager"

    8. Press Open App Manager, and then press Install.

  29. @Anonymous - Sucks that your mom keeps deleting it, send me an email with your name and email that you used on paypal and I will send you the good :)

    @Eugene- I might implement a move tutor at some point to get moves back that you had before.

    @Anonymous - I'm working with somebody that might handle the facebook, twitter etc, I want to do that stuff but I need to get your guys more content before that :)

    @Matt Reed - yea you can pay a little here and a little there until you reach 20, also the code only works once so you have to choose if you want it on the phone or on the website.

    @Matt - Yes there will be other ways to get the evolutions stones that don't require donating, donating just makes it quicker to get. I think those moves are 18. Most move are 18 actually.

    ReplyDelete
  30. don't know if it's me, but on newgrounds, i can't catch pikachu. its not a matter of waiting, but the hp meter wont change red. may be a glitch, don't know.

    great game though. gets addicting, love the weekly updates too. keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  31. r u still going to make updates for the apk still out only for the website.............i know the poll isn't over yet but common the website already won such sucks but as long as I can play the game that's ok

    ReplyDelete
  32. @Matt Reed - I'm still updating the apk with every update. :)

    @Anonymous - The last three pikachu you can't catch. Pikachu does however have a 1% chance of showing up earlier in the level and you can capture it then. Hope that helps and sorry about the confusion.

    ReplyDelete
  33. You can't catch the last three pikachu that show up. But a pikachu does appear every once in a while. Rare

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oops didn't see sams last post. Sorry. Haha

    ReplyDelete
  35. Man you guys are doing such a great job with this game, I've been following you guys ever since I found out about it on my phone. I'll be donating to you guys soon to help out, and I hope it does help out. :]]

    ReplyDelete
  36. @JusticeRD5710 - It helps a lot, its going to cover the multiplayer server, and possible website hosting (for a forums, wiki, etc)

    ReplyDelete
  37. @Sam - Oh wow, that's gonna be awesome! :] That's definitely something to look forward to.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm sorry if I'm annoying u with this shiny thing but will all my starters be shiny if not they should be...........and with the shinys they should have special stats out moves because that would make them be better and more desirable because I like shiny charazard but don't like shiny charmander........he still is cool through ya my point is some people may not like sertin shines

    ReplyDelete
  39. @Matt Reed- I think giving shinies better stats would be unfair to people who can't/don't want to donate.

    ReplyDelete
  40. the stat change could be fare if it was only a minor tweek...major tweek would be no fun but a small one would be alright...and just so it doesn't seem that i am asking for mine to be better i would like you guys to know that i cannot donate so its not like i would benefit...

    ReplyDelete
  41. @Haplo/Matt Reed - I rather do something like it levels up quicker.

    ReplyDelete
  42. ehh no real need to do anything...but it was a thought...

    ReplyDelete
  43. aThat's great idea I love it

    ReplyDelete
  44. hey is there any thing we can do to help you get updates out quicker? or just more out with every update?

    ReplyDelete
  45. I got my shiny thank u.......i know its not much but I hope the 10 helps

    ReplyDelete
  46. where are codes ?

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love your game but i theres one problem i keep encountering it is to do with the catching system in the game. I think it is flawed due to the fact that if my pokemon are too overpowered theres no way that i can catch a previous pokemon. For instance my pokemon were so overpowered that they would either one hit them or 2 hit them without them going into the red bar. So i couldnt catch any more.

    ReplyDelete
  48. It'd be nice to see what the pokemon's stats are and since the game operates a bit differently than normal pokemon a brief explanation of the stats some where.

    ReplyDelete
  49. It's so long for a level 20 pokemon to have a long XP

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have an idea i think pokemon should only be level 10 then after the gym you should be able toget level 20. just to make more of a challange later into the game.

    ReplyDelete
  51. @sam

    I found a small bug with th gym leader. If you have a charmeleon in you party and you put any pokemon in the front of your party it take that pokemon not you charmeleon.(i havent tested it with the other evolutions of the starters)

    if it is not a bug sorry to waste your time

    ReplyDelete
  52. @corey S

    Same for me here. I think it's a bug. Sam probably forgot to exclude evolved starters from the last stage.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Please put this on the app store, if you want to make a lot of money its a good idea or maybe put it on for free ?

    ReplyDelete
  54. Would you put a version number so that you will know what version the game is? You could probably put in the top corner of the home screen.
    Ryan

    It was in the Android Market for free, it was a huge success. But due to copyright violation it was suspended.
    This app has got 0% chance to come in the Apple App store. First of all, there is still this copyright issue. The latter, this application is flash based I guess, so it will not even work on iOS.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Great job on this game. If you are looking for a dedicated site instead of blogspot i run a hosting and development company. If yiu are interested email me. dustin@briskdata.com i am also piratelordx@gmail.com and i have donated so i eagerly await the gifts

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hi,
    I think when the .apk gets uploaded to the file hosting site, you should include better version-ing and upload as of when cos i updated on friday and i am not sure if this apk has the pewter badge or not?

    Currently i manually updated once and DO NOT have the badge yet so does this come with the badge?

    ReplyDelete
  58. I played the Newgrounds version a bit and I noticed that when you click, hold and drag something (such as what pokemons you want for the current level), your selection is considerably away from the mouse pointer when you hold. Same with the Pokeball, and it's quite annoying. You should fix it!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Why dont you write which version it is because later in the game I will have so many apk files that I'll get confused

    ReplyDelete
  60. Y isn't it in the market anymore? Did it get removed or something cause I was gona check 4 updates n this app was gone

    ReplyDelete
  61. yea it got removed because of copywrite issues with nintendo.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Shiney Charmander is THE cutest thing in the game so far. I refuse to let him evolve because he's that cute! Lol

    ReplyDelete
  63. @ Anonymous (April 2, 2011 9:12 AM)
    If you rename the .apk file, your phone doesn't recognize it as an existing game, so it doesn't update (I guess).

    ReplyDelete
  64. Have you thought about putting the game on Kongregate?

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hey sam, loving the game so fast exited for level 6 and all the stuff with it, I am really impressed with your dev quality and how you respond to a lot of people.

    My one suggestion/request is, can you have the game be saved to the internet with a username and password or something to log in, that way we could play no matter what computer or phone we use.

    I'm scared that I might lose my game that I've been playing because I update the browser app on my phone our anything like that.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Just out of curiousity, when we donate and get the code for the shiny, can it be used for more than one starter? (IE, different save files)

    ReplyDelete
  67. @cody/tim im am pretty sure that is supposed to happen. Sam diont. Forget growlith!!! And what if instead of having to donate for a shiny pokemon why don't you make it so you can catcch shiny pokemon but the chance of finding one is.like .01% ?

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm so happy I discovered this game! I got it 2 days before it was removed. I really love the APK you might be able to get it on the new Amazon App Store for Android phones. I know that the browser is going to win in votes but I really love it on my phone more flexibility!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Alright well im not one to complain but the link you post for updates wont let me get continualy downloads. So I cant get any more updates. Anyway to fix that? Cause I really love the game and I want to continue to play.

    ReplyDelete
  70. The weekend is over..............where is the update

    ReplyDelete
  71. Lots of things to answer:

    @Jamer - All I would need is more time to work on it. To do that I would need to quit my job.

    @Matt Reed - How you liking the shiny? Thanks for donating :)

    @Anonymous - I'm trying to think of a plan that will make catching early pokemon a bit easier. I'm probably adding some levels that will help with that.

    @Bob - Good idea, I want to do a wiki at some point that you guys can look at.

    @Anonymous - I'm using the same equation of the game for leveling up, once I add the new levels it will be easier to level since you will be fighting higher level guys.

    @Anonymous - I was thinking about only letting you reach 10 until you beat the gym but I decided against it, for a challenge I will have gym battles in the challenge mode with predefined pokemon :)

    @Corey S - Yea that was my mistake but now thinking about it I think its okay for it to stay there. I'm thinking about the gym not taking away your pokemon, to make it less confusing.

    @Anonymous - I will def put the version number on the game, thanks for the suggestion.

    @Dustin - send me an email to sotero86@gmail.com so we can talk, also did you get your gifts?

    @Eric - It is that way due to it being a phone game to start off with I'm planning on fixing that.

    @John - Kongregate doesn't like copyrighted stuff, I would put it there other wise.

    @Valiant - I'm planning on including that after this update.

    @zShenanigans - No, but if you ask nicely I might consider it :)

    @Anonymous - Other shiny pokemon will be in the game in the update after this one, and it will be a loooowww chance of them showing up.

    @Amazon won't accept it due to it being pokemon, but I will keep updating the apk here :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. @Jeffy - can you be more specific? thanks

    @Anonymous - I still got today and Sunday!

    ReplyDelete
  73. nice message sam lol and u said the hardest part of it was thinking of a new level so idk was just wanting to help

    ReplyDelete
  74. @Jamer - It is the hardest part, but I want to surprise you guys with the story, I don't think it would be fun for you guys to come up with the story, but maybe I'm wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  75. @sam
    I really like your game and I don't know if I'm the only one thinking about this but I think your next update after level 6 should be like a 50 wave level with all of the pokemon that you have already featured all mixed together in just a really big level with larger waves instead of just 5 or 6 in each wave put like 15 or 20 but I'm just trying to give you an idea of it because I get really aggrevated because I have to reselect all the pokemon andreplace them on the map. But I'm pretty sure I'm pobably not the only one who would like this I would really appriciate it if you repliedx on here. I love your game so much man good job you have great talent. Keep up the good work for us who want a good gamelike this

    ReplyDelete
  76. i think i found a bug while playing in the viridian forest. the wild pokemon stole all my rare candies but they kept coming until i killed them all. then it said i beat the level?

    ReplyDelete
  77. Ooooo I want to donate so bad ........its just I.am only twelve and o dont have a credit card .......and i alsoo want to donate cause I want a shiny starter........ But I will still help with awesome rating

    ReplyDelete
  78. DUUUUDEEEEE !!!!!!!


    THIS GAME IS AWSOME !!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  79. @sam sorry 4 my mistake i forgot that in other countries that the weekend is on different days!!here in KWT it is fri/sat.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I would like a exe file so i can play while im ong the go and without the internet

    ReplyDelete
  81. I have an issue with installing the .apk that I am curious if anyone else shares..

    I know how to install them, so that's not the issue. I downloaded the .apk, and when I go to install it, it tells me that "there is a problem parsing the package." I have a Droid X, and my friend has an HTC Thunderbolt, and this happens to both of us. Any ideas?

    ReplyDelete
  82. Have you set it to allow from unknown sources?

    ReplyDelete
  83. Kind of bummed out, Wife ran CC cleaner and deleted all of my progress. :/

    ReplyDelete
  84. Was my comment like, deleted? Sorry...When can we use the PokeMart because i have 7000money

    ReplyDelete
  85. Just donated. Thank you for this fantastic game. Made me look for my old pokemon games lol. Question though. And im sure you answered this before so sorry again for asking. BUt I originally started playing on my Droid2 before it got bannd from the market place. With me downloading the .apk file, it will start over right? Second is, every time you update, i will have to download a newer version, but will i still need to keep the old versions, or can i delete them?

    ReplyDelete
  86. @81f2... - If you install it right, (updating instead of overriding) then you won't lose your save file, also you don't have to keep older version. Hope that helps. *Goes back to work

    ReplyDelete
  87. I don't know if you answered this already or if you've already planned on doing this, but do you think you can make a Pokedex, so it lists who you've caught/evolved and what their moves are? Also, can you better describe what some of the moves do? For example: Sucker Punch and Pursuit have very different normal Pokemon battle effects compared to this game's.

    ReplyDelete
  88. @Sam, will you make a cross platform trading for the game, like Computer to Cell Phone?

    ReplyDelete
  89. @Wabisuke - pokedex is coming after this update, Sucker Punch can only attack pokemon that have not turned around yet. Pursuit is kinda like the opposite, it works on all pokemon but it will do double the damage if the pokemon is turned around. Hope that helps.

    @Charbel - Yes :)

    ReplyDelete
  90. @Jackson Dahi - I got the same error. Its because I had a previous version of the pokeTD.apk file so when I tried to download another version it would rename the file to pokeTD(1).apk. After I deleted all the older versions of the .apk file then downloaded the newest version, everything worked fine for me.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Sam, I would recommend posting your game on kongregate.com for the weekly or monthly contest for a cash prize. I love your game by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Do i have to unistall the orginal PTD that i got from the market place before install of the new apk file?

    ReplyDelete
  93. @Anony- No, just download the new one and it'll update the game

    ReplyDelete
  94. @Sam I'm not such a big fan of playing games in a browser on my smartphone. Please do me a favor and continue releasing the .apk files =)

    ReplyDelete
  95. @Cody, he would need more information on the situation that happened in order to be able to fix it...i played the level a number of times now and i fail it when they get the candies off screen...please state where your pokemon were, who they were, which side the candies left on, and who it was that managed to get them off screen...

    ReplyDelete
  96. im really excited to see this game when its finished, if it gets finished. I honestly can't see how this game could get finished any time soon lol because you can do so much with it! thats one reason i love it so much!

    ReplyDelete
  97. The game is amazing. Pokemon Tower Defense perfectly combines Pokemon with Tower Defense to make one extremely addictive game. I wish you guys the best of luck in continuing the game, the longer the better! I can't wait for your weekly expansions. I hope to see the game develop greatly, you have all my support.

    I'm like, peeing myself waiting for the new map, new Pokemon with new moves, new plot, and the higher level cap.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I can't reall remember how it happened. I just remember it started at about the 5th wave. I've been playing on both my droid(apk) And computer. It happened on the computer. They stole all the rare candy and they kept coming back till the waves were over and I killed them all. Bulbasaur is my starter. Can't remember everyone else

    ReplyDelete
  99. Hey I love this game and once I get a job I will donate a good amount of money over time :D. I was thinking what would be cool is if each area had sub areas you know. One could be like a training area that is a bit weaker then the story level. Another could be a challenge area that has much tougher Pokemon but also a very small chance at a rare Pokemon (like .5% or something). That is just a thought. I would also like to hear any plans for an item shop or maybe a ball upgrade where you can get a great ball(ect..) and that makes the red life bars pop up faster then normal. So ya I think having a 3 part area for each would be cool. And for the gym you could have the trainer fight up against the normally 2 or so trainers on the way to the gym leader as extra areas.What do you think?

    ReplyDelete
  100. In the future, are there going to be any set trades that we will be able to make? Like in the original pokemon we could trade a spearow for a farfetched or an abra for a mr. mime?

    ReplyDelete
  101. When I go to meaguplaod.com or whatever that site is it let me get the first update to allow pokemon to get to lvel 20 but then when I tried to get the update for mystery gifts it said I exceeded my maximum downloads and it wants me to pay for them now. I dont wanna pay to play but I really wanna keep playing.

    ReplyDelete
  102. If I download the apk app do I automaticly get the updates or do I have to download them and if so where would I have to go and download the updates?

    ReplyDelete
  103. 1.) Will you be coming out with a Mac version?
    2.) A pokedex would be awesome...

    ReplyDelete
  104. @Sam Question in the far future will the game eventually stretch to the regions? Johto? Hollen?(however it is spelled) Sinoh? If it does I support u all the way. Can't wait 4 the update!!!

    ReplyDelete
  105. You know I think that article was on to something with the idea of doing this with a different skin on top. In my opinion you should finish this all the way through the elite four, call the Pokemon version the alpha and reskin the whole thing with your own concept and put that on the app store.
    Granted less people would be interested without the pokemon label but I really think you've got some great gameplay here and if you want to pursue a career in game design an exercise in creating a story concept of your own would be helpful. Plus I think it'd be fun, I'm just doing a shot in the dark that you'd do a mech style since that's commonplace in tower defense games, think of the mech equivalent of Bulbasaur how would it differ from the mech Venusaur etc..
    I dunno dude after seeing your design skills thus far I'd like to see what you can evolve this into.

  106. @jeffy, typically megaupload will register you downloading the file if you have to refresh the site...just wait the reccomended number of hours and then try again...if anything try shutting down the browser completely then restarting it...

    @mike thornton, the updated versions (seemingly) are going to be posted on this site for the time being, sam has stated that he may end up moving the site, but for the time being he stated that he will be posting the updates on this site...

    ReplyDelete
  107. @Iruko Omega - Good ideas all around, after this update I plan to round up all the ideas and figure out which one you guys want the most.

    @Billy - Yup :)

    @Jeffy - Adding a different mirror site for next update.

    @Mike Thornton - The tab at the top of the blog will have the download.

    @Anonymous - Mac should be able to play this, on the browser. Pokedex is something a lot of people want, def on my list.

    @Anonymous - I want to take it that far, lets see how far we go :)

    @Samuel (nice name) - Yea I hear you, I was talking to Dan (the artist) to see if he wanted to tackle something like that. We do have some smaller games coming before that that I hope you guys can enjoy.

  108. @cory, if you can replicate the bug please do...any details you can give sam will be helpful on it...

  111. I love this game ever since I found it on newgrounds. sadly I can't play it on my phone. Since adobe air isn't compatible with it.

  112. Oh my god this is so awesome! So well done I hope you keep going!

  113. Oooooooooooo rlly want to donate to you guys so you guys can make even more awsomer upgrades...........the sad thing is im only 12 years old and i dont have a credit card so I can't donate..........I also want to donate cause i want shiny starter too.......BUT I WILL STILL HELP WITH AWSOME RATING!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  114. @Sam I appreciate the response. The wife and I eagerly await the update. Got any sort of timeline on multiplayer?

    ReplyDelete
  115. Simple amazing game. A defence game with RPG elements on it. If you're willing to take suggestion, I have some things you could add:

    -Make waves have random rare pokemons. Thats a nice feature to add replay value to already played stages.

    -TMs so you can modify Pokemons techniques

    -Make so different attacks have different range

    -A personal suggestion, make the game uses the original names: Red for "Ash" and Blue(USA)/Green(JAP/EUR) for "Gary".

    Best of luck with your game, I hope you reach far, Im looking forward to see the final version.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Is there any way we can email suggestions and such to you. If it's posted somewhere on the site already i apologize for my blindness in advance.

  117. how do i use the .apk file ?

    ReplyDelete
  118. I too have experienced the rare candies being gone but completing the level bug/glitch. I replayed that level a dozen or more times trying to catch the Pikachu at the end before realizing it just wasn't possible :P and won on several occasions with no rare candies left on screen. What seemed to be happening was like a fire fighter line about half way then the candy would just disappear, or it would get to the very very edge of the screen where you could just see the tip and they would come past it.

    ReplyDelete
  119. @ gideon if you want to email him just click this name (Sam otero) and then click email...

    @anon thank you...I will try the level out some more myself...

    ReplyDelete
  120. Now I was also thinking (in the future of course) you could do the day care system where you put 2 Pokemon in it and they game say a quarter of the exp earned... well that might be allot so I would say like 10% while you are playing. So your weaker Pokemon grow a bit as you play. Plus I am pretty sure that is what everyone did with magikarp ha ha.

    ReplyDelete
  121. don't listen to those who say: please make it easier, please make the red bar easier to appear, please don't make a pokemon disappear in the first gym because I'm stupid and I can't play....finaly a game that can be challenging! I hate games to be easy! It's fun to play and sort out the way to beat it, not just pressing random buttons till I win because it's soo damn easy.
    Great game, let it as difficult as it is, beacuse that's why we like it: make people use their small brains and make it even more diffiicult in the following levels :P

  122. hiya, im a huge fan of pokemon tower defense! its fun to play and i enjoy the storyline a lot! i pressed the "feedback" button in the game, and so i guess my feedback would be.......
    -keep up the amazing plot
    -keep adding pokemons
    -gary like leaves, make sure to make him appear every now and then
    -more waves per map please? :3
    -and last but MOST IMPORTANT!- feel free to ignore everything ive said ^3^

    ReplyDelete
  123. I think the mew is a little much. Maybe you should give them another shiny starter or a master ball. But a mew, really. By the way I really love your game and I spent two hours figuring out how to make the apk work on an at&t phone.

  124. Are you planning on making an iPhone version maybe? I would love to play this on my iPhone!

  125. ^ it was banned from the app store due to copyright reasons.

  127. ^it was banned from the android app store not the iphone one. since iphone doesnt support flash, he won't be porting it over there anytime soon.

  129. @sam

    i was just wondering can you make level 7 a water level. I just want a chance it get some water pokemon. And it will give every one the chance to experince some thing different about this game so people stay hooked longer.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Just wondering; why are you trying to earn money from ripping pretty much all content off from Pokemon?
    I mean it's not like you took inspiration from the series; pretty much every media resorce is taken straight out from the games.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Here are some things I think should be changed/fixed.

    1. Allow players to see the entire map and have it scale with window-size. I really hated moving the screen around with the mouse all the time. I could only see the whole map using a standalone flash player with "100%" instead of "Show All" enabled and even then only while full-screen.

    2. Add support for scrolling using the mouse-wheel.

    3. Dragging your Pokemon from slot to slot sucks. I would occasionally miss and end up putting the Pokemon away I wanted to move it to a different slot. Change it so a single left-click selects the Pokemon and makes it follow your cursor. Another left-click on an empty spot moves the Pokemon there. Left-clicking anywhere else on the map cancels the move and un-pauses the action. Double-left clicking a Pokemon removes him from battle. Right-click should bring up the move list of that Pokemon near the cursor. Left or right-clicking on a move selects that move and immediately un-pauses the action. Making the player select "done" every time is annoying. Left or right-clicking anywhere other than on a different move cancels the move change. The boxes with each of your current Pokemon in them should have a hide function because it often occludes the Pokemon out in the field which means you can't see or select that Pokemon without accidentally clicking on the Pokemon box on top of it. The boxes should only be there to check move speed/power/type and current experience. In addition to hide you should have a minimized version that shows only the heads of each Pokemon that are placed out of the way so they are not accidentally clicked. Left-clicking the head should remove that Pokemon from the field and right-clicking should bring up the move menu (again, with no "done" to confirm your selection, once you click the move that should be it). This allows you to quickly take out and change the moves of Pokemon without having to move your cursor all the way across the map and selecting them.

    4. An interesting idea would be to allow the player to queue moves up in a certain order (eg. "Focus Energy" to boost crit then "Bite"). Since the action pauses when you select a move anyway, allowing you to queue moves up only makes it less annoying for players and doesn't change the difficulty or skill level. Maybe put restrictions on which moves and how many moves can be queued up together so people don't just queue all of their moves one after the other which would eliminate strategic move choice elements.

    5. Disable all cut-scenes and tutorials the second time you play a level and have a small box show up for a few seconds at the beginning that lets you replay them if you want. Don't make players press skip every single time. Stage 1 is really annoying that way, you have to skip Oak's speech before you select your Pokemon and skip the diagram before the level starts. This is minor but very annoying when replaying that stage.

    6. Add level numbers to Pokemon in storage and on the field so you can differentiate between two of the same Pokemon and easily see levels. Like in the games, adding a feature that allows you to put a symbol on a Pokemon so you can tell duplicate Pokemon apart who are the same level would also be nice. I would assume players will have multiples of the same Pokemon with different move-sets. The symbol allows for easy identification.

    These are simply my thoughts and suggestions and I have no idea if any of them are plausible to implement. If you can't or don't want to implement these changes, let me know why not. To me they seem logical but I could have overlooked something. Keep up the good work.

  132. Hi nice work! I really like your game!
    But is it possible to make a .jar or .jad version for all phone which are in java,'cause my samsung can't run .apk ( Android only).
    Or a PC version?
    Thx to read me :)

    ReplyDelete
  133. I loveeee this app! I downloaded it right before it got removed and I even got my sister to download it too. Can't wait for an update! Keep up the good work! :)

  134. I think the voting is not really accurate because most of the people who downloaded on android do not even know that this website exists. I'm sure there are many more people(just look at the android downloads) that would want it to be on android than PC. It makes sense that more people voted on PC to have it on PC because they actually use their PC's...I think if you made another game that is great and post your blog link in it, then people will be able to know all about Sam & Dan Games as well as PokeTD.apk

  135. The app disappeared from the my apps page so how do I update it?

  136. I have been playing this game all weekend and i have like 5000 poke dollars. this is justa suggestion but maybe there should be something we couold spend it on like at a pokemart....

    ReplyDelete
  137. Hey, does anyone know how to download the .apk file?

    ReplyDelete
  138. I know you most likely don't read all the comments that are sent here but as I played I relized that I had acumulated over 2,000 dollars after I had beaten Brock. I honestly think a Poke'mart would be an amazing idea. Insted of Poke'balls being free incorperate them into Poke'mart for 10 and as you increase levels have prices increase aswell. At the Pokemart you could also have a TM Machine that could teach pokemon new moves (i.e. Flamethrower, Icebeam, Thunderbolt, and my personal favorite HYPERBEAM). Honestly you could do nearly anything when you go back and play the levels six or seven times and biuld a stock of 2,000 dollars the game is considerably over. You could also put obsticles into the game that require you to go to the Poke'mart and buy a certain TM (CUT, STRENGTH, ROCKSMASH, FLASH, SURF, WATERFALL, FLY,and DIVE). Of course that would have to be completed with a Map instead of a drag to view sections of the game. You could use a drag over feature with the TM's to open new routes for the pokemon to travel or to close off (example: cut down tree= pokemon go around.). SO MUCH CAN BE DONE WITH THIS AMAZING GAME!!!! It would be a waste to not utalize all forces in Pokemon to your advantage. LOVE THE GAME KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

    Other Ideas
    (Bill's Pc)

    (section devoted to Eevee and evolved forms[non-capturable])

    (Dratini-Dragonair-Dragonite[HYPERBEAM])

    (Mew controlled by Team Rocket [Mew 2 on team])

    (Legendary Pokemon [Articuno, Moltres, Zapdos]NONCAPTURABLE OF COURSE but opens Mew 2 cave?)

    (Boss of Team Rocket still Giovanni?... Maybe Elite 4??[considering Brock working with Team Rocket])

    (Ash/Misty Cutscene?)

    (POKEDEX!!!!)

    (DIDDO!!!!!![Transform into any known pokemon but all attacks of reduce by half?]

    (daycare center???? [RUN BY BROCK?]

    (Item holding for pokemon? [LEFTOVERS earns extra xp])

    (Unlimited mode? Start at single Lvl 1 Pokemon and work until met all 151 [Unlocks Mew?])

  139. where are the codes for mystery gift?

  140. Couple of things Sam.

    I think there's a sound bug. When I have sound set to silent the level up/evolution sound still plays.

    There should be a way to sort/organise the pokemon we've got (by order number, type, level, name etc) or just a load of boxes.

    Cheers

  148. Omg I love this I'm a massive pokemon fan I, me and my bf play black and white against each I posted it on his fb so him and his mates can play it!

    I'm looking forward to part 6 obviously i know you want to do a good job of it and it's hard work but i can't help but be like hurry up before I burst!

    I'm totally gonna donate when I've covered my council tax (I wanna get the evolution stones). I don't think there's anything wrong with having a donate aspect it's optional and it isn't like restricting not to in any major way like farmville kinda games which are rubbish as well as greedy.

    Have to say though I was gutted I couldn't take brocks sandshrew!

  156. Hi, thanks for all of your hard work on this game! I wanted to suggest that when you click on a pokemon during battle (where you select the move you want it to use), could you possibility add a priority feature that would indicate which pokemon to attack? For example, first, last, strong & weak?

    ReplyDelete
  157. I agree completely with Michelle. The order they attack in often makes no sense. To add to Michelle's list categories like spread (Hitting different targets every time to spread out status effects), fastest (For hitting the pokemon with the highest speed stat before he breaks from the cluster), and capture (Focusing on pokemon that you have yet to catch. Would be great in combination with False Swipe.) would be great to see. If you eventually add in the personality traits I'd be fine with their priorities being based on personality. It would make sense at least.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Relax dude. It'll be soon enough. We're all anxious for it. Just wait a bit longer. I've been reloading the page all day myself waiting for it. It's coming. Sam's been putting a lot of work into this and he's probably the most anxious for the release. This seems like a pretty big update considering the weekly schedule and that there's only one guy working on it. These things take time even with multiple people working hard.

    ReplyDelete
  165. That was to Anonymous btw not Dylan. Just got distracted while writing.

    ReplyDelete
  166. @Dylan - I could but the level is like one big blob, so it would go from 0% to 100% so might as well wait for the update blog :)

    @Bob - Thanks a lot for understanding :)

  169. Ya I can't wait for this level to be done I already maxed out all of them so it would be great to have more Pokemon and a new level to train them on. Not to mention each week we will get more and more new stuff besides just a level. Eventually Sam will be able to make levels like they ain't nuttin xD And with all of us fans chiming in I am sure finding new Ideas will be easy as long as they aren't all "this is to hard I don't wanna wait so long for them to level up" crap. ha ha xD

  170. While I'm here anxiously F5ing for any more news, I might as well mention how much I love this game. I've already capped all six of the Pokémon you can collect, and am working on getting up all their pre-evolved forms, and I am super excited to tear through this next level and catch 'em all :3 Great work!
