Hey guys! V5.8.1 of Pokemon Tower Defense is officially released! Go get your Ponyta and swf, exe, and apk files! I didn't have enough time for the co-op level last week so this week I will see to it. I hope those of you who are far enough enjoyed the Zapdos fight, you can expect similar type of battles for the other birds when we get to them. This week we will continue the story along with some other things.

So to change it up a bit I wanted to talk about what the thought process was for creating the Zapdos fight, and the general process of coming up with a new level for each week.

Step 1: What's going to happen next? - So I have an idea in my head of what the story is going to end like, almost like some bullet points, but the actual details I come up with each week. In this case the gang had just finished spending some time at the Safari Zone, kinda relaxing and just capturing new pokemon. So I thought it was time to make something exciting happen in the story. Your characters had not been to the cycling road so I thought there needed to be a reason to go there. Originally I thought that Gary would show up and tell you that you needed to go to Professor Oak to learn Surf but I didn't want to go to Viridian City again yet since that will be the last gym. I also thought of the possibility of not meeting Gary but another friend on the Cycling Road but I thought I was running out of time and I needed to deal with Gary and the birds in order to move on. Plus I thought the idea of the next level being Gary and the legendary bird would excite the players (you guys). As far as what happens in the level. I always like to make fun of Joey, and just show that our gang still has fun along the way. Also a good reason to travel to the Cycling Road was that they hadn't gone there yet as Joey mentions. Since Gary was running away from the birds I wanted to see him cornered and you show up to save the day! Also making this level with Gary and Zapdos facing off I thought of something interesting for the story and I left some small hints of it in the scene.

Step 2: Level Design - Usually on Monday I will think of the general theme of the next level. Last week was Gary and Zapdos. I knew I wanted to make the fight with the legendary birds.... errr legendary. So I thought okay I want this fight to just be you and Zapdos but Gary is there so he needs something to do. I put that aside for a moment and thought that Zapdos is electric so I want him to be sending out attacks very often and that they should affect your whole group. So since Zapdos will be doing a lot of damage to your party Gary would be perfect to heal your pokemon, similar to Celebi. But I wanted to add more work to the healing, so unlike Celebi you have to actually take your pokemon away from battle to get healed. A player a long time ago suggested an idea to have nurse joy on the side line and you sent your pokemon there to be healed. This was a variation of that idea. Now back to Zapdos. First I thought okay Ground is immune to electric attacks so I would use Drill peck to counter that, which also brought the idea of he being able to target anybody in the field regardless of their position. But I read that flying doesn't do a lot of damage to ground and I didn't want everybody to have to get ground pokemon to beat the level. So I made all damage be a set amount. Also I thought simply removing your units from the field to prevent damage was overplayed and would remove the need to use Gary so I added way for Zapdos to wait for your units to be ready which introduced some bugs (when your party dies the level doesn't end since Zapdos is waiting for a target).

Step 3: Implementation, Balance and Testing (Making it happen!) - This part is the last part to happen, once I have my ideas I set out to animate the scenes make the new characters and create the new moves for the level. In this case most of the characters were done, I just had to make Gary into a Tower and create the new moves for Gary and Zapdos. The new moves can sometimes create technical difficulties. I can spend a good amount of hours bug fixing or just balancing the moves so they do enough damage. Once the bugs are cleared I create a team of pokemon that will be the best to beat the level. In this case I made a team of 6 level 90 Rhydon with Stone edge, I didn't buff them but I thought it would give me a good idea of what kind of damage the players would be able to put out. I played it until it took at least 6 waves to beat him while moving the pokemon around to get healed etc and moving them around to always be attacking Zapdos. After that I tweaked with Zapdos stats a bit to make it just right.

So I hope you guys enjoy seeing what it takes to make the level happen. Now on to the progress list! (Note that Hero Tower Defense Progress will stay in the HTD post from last week)

I have her/him on level 70 and i tried on diferent levels so i could fight diferents poke levels, but its the same, it doesn't work. Please check it.

    4. Good job on the game so far. I really like the progress you've made since you started :)

      There's a minor fix needed for the message when logging in. You spelled "response" as "responce" there. Just letting you know, so it can get fixed and look right. I'm thinking it should be a quick fix, so it's no big deal.

      Sam isn't omnipotent. He has to approve the comments to stop spam, and he has other things to do. 10 hours really isn't long if you post while he's sleeping and has to go somewhere after waking up. He doesn't just sit in front of a computer all day approving comments.

    8. Hi Sam:

      Please, realise there's something wrong with zapdos boss. It's suppose to kidnapp Gary after the 10th wave is finished (in fact, Gary says that u have a limited time to beat the boss before zapdos catch gary), however, this is an infinite wave, so zapdos doesn't get Gary, meaning that no matter if zapdos beat all your pokemon or u simply don't put them on the battle field; u can't simply lose

    9. For the first replie, the objective of heal pulse is that: heal your and oppoents pokemon.
      But for the Viridian Gym shadow achievement, leader Gary don´t use a type of pokemon: the shadow pokemon are Giovanni's type (shadow cubone/digglet/etc..)? or special (valuables pokémon) like EEVEE or Starter?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Awesome level Sam. Pretty challenging too. However, if your party doesn't go down, when is the map supposed to end besides when Zapdos goes down? I remember Gary mentioning a time limit of sorts. If it's supposed to end on the last wave, then it must take a really long time for Zapdos to finish it since my party went down the first time and I was waiting for the map to finish so that I would be returned to the chapter select. Granted, I did put Zapdos to sleep quite a bit as well as paralyzing it and freezing it too, so perhaps it was making up for lost time.

  13. sam the way to beat this is way to easy i accualy beat it proper but i 1st figured out using to lv 40 gastly to beat it. worked to easyyyyy

    ReplyDelete
  14. Please answer or at least read and take this into consideration!!

    1. For the co-op : I hope you can use your own pokemon and find people by using private rooms, and I also hope the zapdos is more powerful because you have 12 pokemon I'm guessing?

    2. I think you should edit the Pokemon Center somehow to where you don't have to load a page every time you change nickname, put up a pokemon or remove one, etc. and a feature where you could add more than 1 pokemon at a time, same for taking down, it would save ALOT of time for some of us.

    Thanks, Sam for all your hard work.

  15. Hi Sam!

    Its Sideshow-Bob here! Hope you remember me =) I stopped playing a while ago, but started again to see how it improved! Well done!! Your game evolved pretty good. Starting it again from the start showed me some new aspects of the game. While we were always "forced" to stay at the lvl cap to proceed, we now are able to select our way of playing. Catch and train and use tactics, or just train them till we can just overpower the lvls. And the most interesting part is to go and trade for a killer pokemon =D Its very very important to expirience that way again. It feels more complete now.

    One more thing: I LOVE SAFARI-ZONE AND DIGLETTES CAVE!! Interesting variations of Tower-Defense-Gameplay!
    It also made me think of something: At the end stadge (not the last one i think) you could use the "Human-Towers" again. Imagin Ash, Gary, Maruto and Joey in your inventory. But instead of choosing attacks, you choose Their Pokemon.

    Joey with Rattata, Pidgey, Pickachu and Beedrill. And they got pre-set moves. And you kill alot of high-lvl-pokemon with them.

    What do u think?? Please keep on the good work!

  17. 11th hey Sam now that you've updated to 5.8.1 it seems dragon rage does no damage at all to zapdos, even though it's supposed to always deal 40 damage and curse is dealing very low damage. Is that a bug or what?Cuz now it seems impossible to beat it.

    ReplyDelete

    1. It's possible with strong Pokemon and right strategy.

      heck it's even possible with lv1 pokemon because zapdos won't kill them if you keep healing at right times

    2. I think I know what he wants to say. If u don't put pokemon in the battle field, rattatas will catch candies, however, there are 2 candies that can't be caught by rattatas because are a bit far from their path, so rattatas will cross all the battle field without catching candies.

      I think it's like that in order to allow newbies that don't know how put pokemon in the battle field to win this level. (anyway, this level has been designed to be won with a single starter using tackle)

  20. HI,
    Am I in top 10?

  21. Hey Sam,
    idk if your aware or not, but a lot of people are simply using 2 gastly with the move Curseand 1 tough pokemon to soak the drill peck to 4 shot the boss, and 1 tough pokemon to soak the drill peck. IDK about you but I feel like 1 of the 5 legendary pokemon from Red/Blue should be a little tougher than 4 some level ~20 ghosts cursing healing and re-curseing it. I think you should make Zapdos immune to 1hko effects and curse, and maybe do the same for future bosses. I beat it the hard way, which I think is the way you intended it.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Curse deals MUCH LESS damage now so be happy I guess?

    2. Zapdos is level 91. Noob.

      Delete
    3. I don't really understand what zapdos being level 91 has to do with anything, or how that makes me a noob. And I am glad it got fixed, Sam puts a lot of effort into balancing the game so I'd like to see the game work the way he intended it to work.

      Delete
    4. The reason that I called you a noob is because the current level cap is 90. OHKO moves can't be used on Zapdos for the moment.

      Delete
    5. zapdos is level 91 so no 1 hit ko attacks will hit him cos the level limit is 90

      Delete
    6. Well, once we hit level 100 cap that won't be the case. I still think bosses should be immune to 1hko.

  25. New Mystery Gift Pokemon (0%)
    Hmm....:
    Any uncatchable legend (Highly Unlikely)
    Electabuzz/Magmar (Seems unlikely since they are version exclusive)
    Koffing
    Seel
    Any of the Fossils
    i think Koffing seems the most likely candidate for it.

    New Story Level (0%)
    is it the route south from Fuchsia (Forgot what its called >.<)?

    Zapdos boss battle co-op level (0%)
    Cool, Seems like fun!

    New TM (0%)
    This means a new move on the Pokemon Mystery Gift i assume....
    i know:
    Electabuzz needs Shock Wave
    Seel needs Icy Wind
    Not sure on others though Hmm....

    Finish implementing design to trading pages (0%) - Forgot some >.<
    lol

    Bug Fixes (0%)
    - Make Route 17 end if your party all faints (0%)
    Seems like there is less and less bugs every update....But there is still some....

    Also, the game has come so far. You should be proud Sam.

  36. @Sam-

    This is a really great level. Your creativity shines in this one. I think it is brilliant. Just the right amount of strategy and brainstorming the perfect team involved. I would say, however, that I wouldn't mind articuno and moltres being just a TAD more difficult. I say this because I beat zapdos on my second try. I figure the perfect level of difficulty would require 5-7 tries before beating it. Anything more and it get's tedious. (oh hi, Lavender Town!). But the Muk level was sweet and so was Celadon. anyway, keep up the great work!

  54. Hey Sam!
    great update!

    there is a problem with trade center though.
    When i put one of my pokemon up for trade and choose what i want in return, often times the picture is blank with no name either. i have ad this problem when i request a shiny tauros, shellder, kangaskhan, or horsea to name a few. all that comes up is, "Shiny of any level".

    thank you!

  55. Seriously. Can we not proofread our posts? It is ridiculous how many errors there are.

    LOVE the game Sam.

  56. Hi Sam,
    Sorry to bother you on the home stretch of this great game, but could you find a place where people can see what abilities are currently in the game? I can't remember all of them from the blog posts. Could you put it in the FAQ section or something similar? Also, can we get Surf within the next two levels? We are running out of things to do on the mainland and need to head to Cinnabar and the Seafoam Islands soon. Thank you!

    2. Damn it, Sam, you will do anything to put off giving us access to Weezing, won't you? More importantly, there seems to be a major bug in 5.8.1. Something happened to the move Curse. I tried Route 17 again for the hell of it, the same way I beat it before, and this time, my two Gengar with Curse barely made a dent in that thing! I think you should really look into this, Sam, Curse is a very important move for beating some of these levels.

    3. sam did that so you couldnt kill zaptos fast.

    4. It's not a glitch. Curse was overpowered so he dampened it. Curse is in no way essential.

  59. Hi Sam!!!


    I think Shadow Lugia must be the evil one in PTD 2 cause it's the only shadow legend with a different look than regular sprite, all others shadow pokemons got same as regular sprite(with a shadow aura).


    In PTD 2 you should(if you want) make only shiny dogs and regular we must get it from PTD 1 and you should make shadow legends much more rare than PTD 1.


    And something else please when you put legendary birds make them to worth as Regular Dogs or Shiny Mew.

    Anyways love what you're doing I hope you make it to where you can use your own pokemon on multiplayer and can meet up with friends in private rooms.

    Maybe you should make a lava like level with magmar, magnemite, etc.?

    Thanks :D

    2. Yes, but when you use hail, raindance change the wheater, you can't have more than 1 wheater at time

  64. Sam, please reduce the recoil damage of all attacks to make those attacks still viable. I mean, recoil deals so much damage that your pokemon will faint a few seconds after you put them down. I don't think anyone uses any recoil attack on their pokemons anymore. Reduce the recoil damage of most recoil attacks, please. A useless/non-viable attack is same as having no attack at all.

  70. Sorry to bother you, but need to mention these things. For starters, Confuse Ray is still being glitchy by taking in weakness and resistance. You should test it out with normal types and psychic types in Poke Tower 1 to see what I mean. Second, the trade center has an odd blur glitch, in which when I try to check my own Pokemon that I have up for trade, to check for requests, the last few Pokemon get all blurry like nuts. And finally, there's a bit of a grammar error on Route 12. When you finish the level and Giovanni says "Your friend is in trouble we need to take him to Saffron City!", shouldn't it be "Your friend is in trouble! We need to take him to Saffron City!"?

    Sorry if it sounds like I'm nitpicking or something. ^^; But these are the things I found that need fixing.

  74. Hello.
    Today i was hunting for some Shiny Pokemons on Route 15.
    After ALOOOOOOOOOT of tries, hours, i finally got me 2 Shiny Pokemons - 1 we're a Gloom and the other we're a Vileplume.
    So i was about to save the game and WOOOPS, it glitched and could'nt save making me lose all that hardwork.
    So i dunno what to do, if you can make them both come back, one of them.
    Even only an answer would be fine.
    Im not trying anything here, those pokemons are'nt even that rare, i just hate when i work hard for somthing and it goes to waste.
    If you can contact me on my email "alonzaychik@gmail.com" or answer here,
    Thank you very much for any concern.

  83. i've got an idea for the next update (or any future updates if you can't get it done next week). you could make it so that when a pokemon is ready to level up it does it automatically. This would be useful because i, and maybe other people to other things while their training their pokemon. It would probably be a good idea to be able to turn it on and off though for the acheivments that require pokemon at a certain level to work

    ReplyDelete
  84. I think that shadow pokemon should learn more shadow moves like in Pokemon XD
    Also it seems like you are giving to much levels too fast
    Next when ptd2 comes out are we going to trade from ptd1
    And if you keep making games that go to the 3 4 or 5 generation and your pokemon are at 100 and you want to trade one of your pokemon to the newer games. some wont evolve like a magneton to magnezone because magneton wont get any more levels if he is at 100
    Lastly i think ptd is amazing and i cant wait to for the next update

  93. Yo Sam, you gotta drop this Graphicforce guy. If you watch his videos he literally does not have a clue what he is talking about, nor does he really know much about Pokemon. On top of that, his website that supposedly wants to have the multiplayer all to himself, he still has it on version 5.5, which is pretty ridiculous considering how many updates he has "covered" since then. I'm sure there is another server owner who would love to do this for you instead.

    Like, it doesn't have eevee, or oddish, or ekans, and some others to capture :/
    So, what could it be?
    Do I have to download the game to have all the pokemons available to catch?

In blue, theres sandshrew, meowth, vulpix, bellsprout, scytcher.

      About eevee, this pokemon have 0.2% of sprite in route 8, if u train there, u can catch it whit some eye :p
