Hello everybody! I'm backkkkkkk!! So as many of you know I recently moved and getting internet has taken way longer than I expected so we had two weeks of PTD silence besides the update (which I hope you guys enjoyed (: ) I'm using slow public internet right now but on Tuesday (3/20) the cable company is coming to install internet (hopefully...) Update- Got internet! Woo! The move went well, I'm still adjusting to the new location, learning where the grocery stores are at and finding the best routes to use etc Thank to everybody who was concerned with how everything went, I really appreciate it :)

Happy Anniversary Pokemon Tower Defense!

Pokemon Tower Defense was first released to the Android Marketplace on March 10, 2011!  I remember releasing it and never expecting it to grow as big as it did, and I'm always very grateful to all of you guys and gals for making this happen! My goal for the game was to finish the story mode in a year or less and while I didn't complete my goal I think we got pretty close!  

As a special gift the next Mystery Gift will be...... Regular Mew! This will be your first chance to get Regular Mew, after a week the gift will change and Mew will be added in the game with a secret way of finding it.

The Last Update! (To rule them all?)

So going back to completing the game... the next update will complete the game! Yes, you heard (read) right! The next update will contain all the remaining levels:

Adding the crucial Lickitung NPC trade to the new level (0%)

But as you might have guessed this update will take longer than a week. How long will it take? I don't even know myself which is why I will keep updating the blog with my progress towards finishing it. I really don't want to try to rush the ending since I want it to be very special. The reason I'm not releasing it little by little is that I really want you guys to experience it all at once.

Random Game Sequels

When I got my internet back and saw the huge pile of emails that I have there I saw a couple that were really interesting. Mostly regarding a game that I didn't make but it's called Pokemon TD 2: Kanto. If any of you were wondering I had nothing to do with this game at all. If you want to know what I think about it, then my response is... neat. I don't own Pokemon so the fact that somebody made this game doesn't bother me and I think that it is pretty flattering that somebody decided to make it, it's interesting to me to see the changes that he made to the game and friendly competition is always welcomed :) On a side note, my sequel will be about a million times better ;p

Pokemon Tower Defense 2

Speaking of sequels! You guys made it loud and clear in the last poll! 56% of you want instant capture with the pokeballs. Looking at all the comments and arguments made, I totally agree with you! What I will do is keep the 100% catch rate when weakened but still have multiple pokeballs, I'll think of ways to implement them without letting you capture the pokemon when they have really high health and then I will present the idea to you again.

For PTD 2 I really want to introduce some elements to the game that will make the game fell fresh while still retaining what made PTD well PTD. Here are 3 new elements that I want you to look at and tell me what you think.

  1. The "candy" can move - When I say the "candy" I mean the thing that the attacking units will be after, so it can be candy, a pokemon, an egg, etc. In PTD 1 the candy was always stationary. Only the enemy could move it and then you could manipulate the enemy (using moves like whirlwind) and then defeat them to change its location. In PTD 2 sometimes the "candy" will try to return to it's original spot once dropped. Sometimes it might be trying to leave the level by itself. Adding this new functionality will enable all kinds of new levels.
  2. Blocking or Unblocking paths - A new mechanic that I want to add for PTD 2 is being able to block or unblock a path that your enemies or allies can go in. An example is the enemy has direct access to the "candy" you can block their path but putting an obstacle in their way (How exactly you would do this is still up in the air) and now they have to down a long way to reach the "candy" giving you more of a chance to defeat them. In the same way you might want to unblock a path, you might have to use attacks to destroy the the obstacle or have your pokemon carry the obstacle away.
  3. Special Abilities - Another feature that many modern Tower Defense games have is some sort of special ability that you can use to help you defeat the enemies. In a lot of game this will be a Meteor attack. Something that you can click and drag to the enemies to unleash upon them. Normally you will have to wait for this move to recharge, charging it might be done by your towers attacking or just naturally over time. The special abilities will vary based on what your current team is.
So that is what I have in mind, some new mechanics that will enable all kinds of different new levels. Tell me what you think on the comments below.

Creature Universe Game (ANPO)

This game is always shifting, changing, evolving in my head. Recently I decided it was time to start putting down some notes on paper to really start to brainstorm what this game will be about and what ideas I want to explore in it. Today I bring you some of my notes plus I open it up to you guys to tell me what you think this game could be about. Note that while I read every single comment I can't comment or agree with all of them but I do read them and they do affect my decisions and way of thinking. So they are more than welcome.  While in the bathroom (a lot of interesting ideas usually come up in the bathroom) I started to write down my thoughts.
  • First I want the emphasis of the game to be the world and creature simulation.
  • The world is vast and has many secrets scattered all around for players to find (Think Zelda, Mario Bros)
  • Creatures are dynamic and feel alive
When I reached that note I stopped and I said what does that mean? How do you make something feel alive? After some thought I came up with an answer. (There are many answers to this question, which I want you guys to tell me what you think it can be.) My answer isn't some sort of ultimate answer but just what I came up with. I thought that for a creature to feel alive when you see it out in some area would be that the creature must:
  • React how you would expect it to - This is a very important idea. One of the top reason I play videogames is to see how the game reacts to my actions. Imagine punching somebody in a game and having them gain health instead of losing it. That reaction would be totally unexpected but weird and bad in my opinion. Cause and effect must make sense for a player. So to make the creatures feel alive they have to react to you in ways that you would expect them to. If you run at a bird in real life, that bird would most likely fly away. If it doesn't I usually freak out, is the bird used to humans/ isn't afraid of them? How the creatures react to your character, surrounding and your actions is a big part of making the world and creatures feel alive, in my opinion.
  • Their actions must vary - Nothing ruins the illusion of something feeling alive more than seeing a pattern. If the creatures keeps repeating the same pattern over and over you just see it as a system but if the creature does something that makes sense but isn't following some sort of pattern then you really start believe it is thinking about what to do rather than following a set of rules. A certain amount of randomness must be introduced into the creatures but also some rules since animals aren't random but they follow their instincts. (Just to be clear the randomness plays out when they are in the wild and not once you "captured" one. Once you capture a creature they won't randomly run away or anything and they will obey your commands.)
  • They have objectives - The last thing is that these creatures are a step above animals, they are a little bit smarter and have a wide range of emotions that they will express. Because of this creatures must always have an objective that they are trying to follow. I have a long list of over 20 objectives that creatures would have at any given time. Some examples are:
    • Locating Food
    • Having fun
    • Running away from something
    • Protecting something
    • Gathering with others
    • Looking for a fight
So to me these are some of the things that the creatures in this game must have to make them feel alive in the way that I want them to feel. What do you think would make the creatures feel alive in this game? Let me know in the comments below!

And More!

The goal from the very beginning for Dan and I was to make fun games that we liked and we thought it we liked the games there must be people out there that will like them to. That is still our goal. We also wanted to be very open with our fans and let them in on the process of developing games. We really strive to be very open with talking and listening with you guys because in the end if you guys don't enjoy our game then we failed. I want to thank you guys for the continued support, this first year has been a roller coaster ride with mostly ups than downs and we wouldn't be here with you. I would still be working a desk job wondering if my games would ever take off. I'm really looking forward to the ending of PTD, I'm extremely impressed and excited for anything HTD, and also excited for PTD 2 and Project ANPO. Let's make this next year even better than the last!

Sincerely,
Samuel Otero

    1. @Sam Any chance we could get a small update will just the level cap increased to 100 for next week? Since it's going to take a couple weeks to finish those last couple of levels, it would give us something to do while we wait for the next levels. I don't know about everyone else, but I have one of every shiny pokemon as well as the regular and shadow dogs and victini at lvl 95 and I'd like to max their lvls next week rather than have to max their lvls and the birds, mewtwo, and electabuzz all at once.

    4. yes, that seems ok.

      anyways, to clarify, Sam, there will be weekly blog posts, and if so, regular mew will come out next week? or do we wait the entire update for mew?

      so conclusion: congrats on moving, sorry for the second place, and thank you for this wonderful and inspiring game tat has come to a final end. (it inspired me to play the real pokemon games.)

      and signing off, i say: thank you. all words said.

    5. is it possible that after u finish the levels of PTD 1, u let all the mystery gifts "come back to life" and be able to be to be used again? i didnt start playing this game until 2010 and i think it would be fair to give everything back. besides, PTD 2 is gonna start anyway and everyone will be like "rush hour" on it. i think it should be fair that we can also trade out pokemon from ptd1 to out account on ptd2 (whenitsdone). thanks for listening!

    Wow, so this is it, huh? Last update. Seems like only yesterday I first heard of this game and now it's almost over. Much as I can't friggin' wait to get the legendary birds, I always looked forward to those weekly updates.

    Kinda wish it wouldn't take more than a week, but on the other hand, I'm sure it's gonna be worth the wait.

  7. Love the PTD2 idea. Just one thing. I know most people wouldn't want to wait like a month till the new and final levels come up so how about adding another Challenge level with a really rare shiny Pokemon. I would rather it be shiny since you can buy a random shadow Pokemon in thew game corner. Hope you like it and take it under consideration. I am your biggest fan, Vince.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hey Vince thanks for the suggestion, however I don't think I can do this since doing a challenge level will slow down the progress of the story levels so it would only make everything take longer.

    2. It's alright. Just happy you actually spent time reading it. :)

  8. For your ANPO. Randomness can cause frustration. But randomness, like u said, is absulutly important to make em "feel alive". My thoughts: Add something like telepatic skills. Wich u can train and improve. So you could create a way, to predict what the "Creatures" will do and go next. Or maybe even mindcontroll em later. But really just to catch a idea of what they might do. So if untrained you could missunderstand the Beasts thoughts. What do you think?

      With randomness what I mean is they won't always run away the same direction or they won't always keep repeating the same pattern when you see them in the wild.

      Delete
    2. I think i got that =D I mean before you catch em.

      Imagin a small bird you wanna catch. The bird is crossing your view....

      youre like: "Oh i want that!!!"

      You follow the bird. But it randomly changes the direction and sits in a tree.

      Now you can guess: Will i have to climb? Will it flee?

      Now you use "Mind reading"

      You cant really understand all, but you understand: "gruml....cheap cheap...food....waterfall"

      So you know: It might go to the waterfall and i can catch it there!

      Might be a bad example. What i mean is: I love them to be not predictable. But i tried to think of somethink that could still help you. Don know if Telepathy is the right solution! =D

  10. I really like this idea of PTD 2, I'm following you all the way. I do have one quick question though, will the placements on stage be preset still or will we be able to place the Pokemon anywhere?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They will most likely still be preset, while I can see many tower defense game let you create the paths that the enemy will take in those games you have an unlimited amount of towers that you can put up (as long as you have money or whatever) in PTD it will always be 6 towers so it won't be possible.

      Delete
  11. For ANPO, these are suggestions:
    1. The name of your creature colored with white, green, blue, red, or gold depending on its rarity. (The more rare it is, the better the stats (if there is stats) it would have.)
    2. Multiple quests. While most quests have one, this should have MORE so if you finished the main quest, you still have to finish the side ones.
    3. A creature based on a pet or enemy from HTD.
    4. A FOUR-HEADED, FOUR-WINGED, FOUR-ARMED, FOUR-TYPED (four legs and tails are optional) DRAGON!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks for the suggestions, I found number 2 the most interesting out of all of them. I think having more than one general objective (being the greatest trainer) can be really interesting. Thanks! Also dragons are sweet :)

      Delete
    2. I like the first idea, but i would change the colour of their name, because there wouldn't be colour variaty if you changed the colour of the creature.

      P.S. Can you make something like combining stones? They would work on certain creatures, and make two creatures one. So when they both have one type, when they are combined the resulitng creature would have two types.

      Delete
  12. You should make some pokeballs work better on different types of pokemon.

    Sam, a question. Before I level my Golbat up any further, will happiness evolutions in PTD2 involve leveling up? If so, will it be possible for a level 99 Pokemon to gain enough happiness to evolve upon reaching level 100? My Golbat's at level 95, and I'd just like to know in advance so I can ensure it becomes a Crobat.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I can tell you that leveling up will not be part of getting enough happiness to evolve. So level away lol

      Delete
    2. Missingno. MasterMarch 19, 2012 at 7:45 PM

      Alright, but will it be part of causing the evolution itself? Or will a level 100 Golbat with maximum happiness still be able to evolve into Crobat?

      Delete
    3. No, what I think Sam means is that once your Golbat reaches maximum happiness, it will automatically evolve into Crobat no matter what level it is. It will evolve normally as any other Pokemon would. So even if you have a level 100 Golbat, it will still evolve if it has maximum happiness. Hope this helps! ---Vince

      Delete
    4. I have the same question as Missingno.. (Missingno., do you really need a period???)
      Basically for example, you have a level 99 Pichu (I love Pikachu), and you just hit the minimum happiness requirement for evolving. Will it start to evolve or will it require level-up?

      Delete
    5. Good point, hmm leave it at 99 :D

      Delete
    6. i got an idea called the evea stone who evoles anything as long a its high enough eg. 100 bulbersaur + evea stone= ivysaur lvl 100

    7. That's a great idea thomas bully

  14. Maybe since it will be an unknown time until the last series of levels come out you could make that time an EXP and Shiny Multiplier so people can play catch up. Also could you update the battle center with the new Pokemon and right levels as it seems a bit outdated.

  15. Hi sam, PTD1 is awesome and the 3 new features you listed for PTD2 sound interesting especially the blocking of paths!

    That being said, will there ever be a way for newcomers to get any missing pokemon? (weekly gift codes)

    It's hard for myself and i assume for others too, but looking forward to collecting all of them for PTD2 if it's not possible this time around!

    thanks, and i wish you great success!

  16. Sam, i thought of an idea for getting Unowns in PTD2.

    On the main screen there is a hidden button. To unlock this button, you need to go to the Ruins of Alph (in a cutscene or something). When you click it, there will be 4 puzzles (Like G/S/C/HG/SS). Solve them, and then a level inside the ruins of alph unlock. The levels contain certain unown. When you select your pokemon, there would be a list of the unowns findable in the level so you dont have to remember which ones are where.

    Hope you like it! and cant wait for the next update!

    1. I like the puzzle idea, for the sequel I will indicate on the enemies life bar if you have caught that particular one or not

  17. hey, i have an Idea for PTD2, and u should put it as a poll. like in the normal pokemon games, u should use the badges to make the pokemon obey your command. it should be random if u dont have the badge. please think about this, cause i think its a great idea. i also think that after u beat mewthree, he will flee in one of the regions and u pick where he goes. just got it in my head

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The badges will impact the traded pokemon that you use in battle but not the ones you raise yourself. By regions you mean a different town in Kanto?

      Delete
    2. no, like he flees to Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, or Unova. the Badges part u are correct. and if its possible, u should make the badge stuff work when u are using hacked pokemon, so when people train them, they gotta use badges to actually make them do what they say.

    1. Sam, one question, what is the link for the Pokemon TD: Kanto game? I really want to play it and compare the two!

      Delete
    2. This is what he said

      "I know that the old pokemon TD is very popular - but the graphics he used makes me cry so I decided to make my own version with more professional look. Also - it's really different here, he used pokemons as towers and animated the 'fire' as moving the sprite towards the target. In my game we have real towers and a lot of interesting waves of animated vector pokemon.

      It looks a lot better, and I think players deserve "version 2" of pokemon TD I'm sure they were waiting to see a better improved version

      Anyway - I am going to contact the first game creator and ask him if he wants maybe to work together on pokemon TD 3, so we can make a version with all 300 or more pokemons and more towers (i used only 6 towers and divided all powers to 6. instead of real 17 pokemon types, i simplified to 6 only. like, 6 base types . In pokemon TD 3 we can make also a good story if we work together coz I'm not good in real pokemon storyline of the series.. I don't even remember character names except ash / misty / brook )"

  20. Hey! First off, I don't want PTD to END!!! =( But I know it must. So I have some ideas and some questions. First about PTD. Will we be able to catch the birds also? Because I need six more Pokemon, the only six left. (I'm determined to catch them all) And I love the regular Mew!! (Who wants a shiny one anyway?) Also PTD 2:Kanto has nothing on you! they made the mistake of towers and not Pokemon, and its not the real Kanto region. They should have done their homework. I can't wait for your PTD 2! But for ANPO, are you wanting 2D like the Pokemon games or 3D? I completely agree with the 'Feeling Alive'. Thats what made me love the Pokemon show! The creatures in their habitat! Reacting to what your doing, not in an annoying pattern. Your going to make a way to catch them right? Cause thats the best part, to have a partner in crime, a buddy to save you, and battle? (since i have no idea where your going with this i'm throwing out what i perceived when i read this) could you catch the creatures with your soul or mind?? To instantly make them bond with you and become your freind? You could Only to be able to catch a couple with you at once but they will follow you and fight for you. You could store them at your house and to have more you would have to upgrade said house. (I really love games where you could build a house however you wanted and make it your own AKA huge Minecraft fan)Sorry if i'm dragging on but i love your idea of an open world filled with 'alive' creatures. Anyway, I have lots of ideas but ill stop now before im writing a book! Thanks! I LOVE YOUR GAMES!

    Replies
    1. Hey Athermes, yes you can catch the birds, also I think the game will be in 2d since we lack 3d artist and programming. You will be able to "catch them" thanks for the suggestions and ideas the house part sounds interesting. I'm def thinking about you can customize the place where your creatures reside to make them grow faster.

    {1}-Can you make the mew mystery just for one day or if we could just get 1 mew because people wont want to trade since everybody would have mew.

    {2}-Also for ptd 2 could you make it so we can only go to the next level if we have the requirements for the next level.

    {3}-Next do u plan on turning pokemon that have been used in the hacked version back to normal because i have a few legends that i recived from trades and they are hacked.

    {4}-Last thing is your brother still working on the ptd videos because i realy enjoyed the first two.

    Thats it for my questions i hope your internet will be back tommoro and keep doing a awsome job on the next few levels cant wait to see how they come out:)

    1. 1. After this week some people will want to trade for him :)
      2. Hmm I don't like this idea that much because I want for people to try to beat levels even if they aren't high enough level.
      3. I might include a way to use SnD Coins to convert hacked pokemon over to non hacked but I'm not sure if I will do this or not. I will put it up for vote most likely.
      4. Yes he is working on the 3rd one right now, check out his blog for more info and to encourage him!

      Thanks for the support anon!

    2. Sam, no one ever trades for mystery gift shinies or achievement shinies. Check out the forums. Pokes like Charmander, fossils, Victini, and Ratata (in reality, one of the most difficult to catch) are worthless. By giving unlimited Mews, their value becomes nothing.

  26. So i wrote out this supper long insane post that took me thirty minutes and i forgot to sign in so its gone. so i will be ruining grammar and spelling. So I love your games, especially PTD. I have questions and suggestion and ideas. First things first PTD. Will you make it where the birds are catchable (or at least buyable) because through your post i couldn't tel if you were going that way. I love normal Mew and am happy you are putting in a non shiny Mew. I like originals! xD I was also wondering if only Blue games could catch Magmar a couple levels ago (I am Blue so I wouldn't know) If so, it wouldnt be fair to allow only Red to catch Electabuzz. If not, by all means do so. Ill fight for him! Haha. On to ANPO,(I'm not sure exactly where your takling this idea, this is just what i pictured reading your blog) i love just the sound of it. An open world where creatures roam free and react to you and your actions. What i was wondering is if your going to be able to catch them? I would assume so, and that is the best part. To have a buddy to fight along side you, a partner in crime, thats just the best. And how would the civilized humans work? Would there be towns or cities, or is it just you on the continent alone with these creatures? And MMO? Would we have to build our own societies around these creatures (that would be awesome but i know, ALOT of work xD) because that would be like an award winning game! 2D or 3D? I would love either one. My suggestions are that we are able to catch a creature with our soul or mind. To bond with the creature to where it will love you unconditionally and support you, fight for you, and do what ever you say (whether you are good or evil). You should only be able to have a few with you at one time but there must be a limit. After the limit is reached you must take some back to your house (or day care, etc.) and if there is a said house you should have to expand it when you have too many (I love games with homes and the ability to build off them and make them your own) And there should be a good and evil meter (if were getting super RPG). There should also be creatures that would refuse evil tasks if given the order. If too many evil tasks are done the creature would begin to change... And MMO? ( i know that would be ALOT of work but hey, best game in the world? I think so!) Finally, The creatures should be able to control elements and have special attacks and such, maybe not exactly like Pokemon, but kinda close. Maybe a creature you found in the water could only be useful in places near water, so if you walked in the desert or plains you would be carrying it along with you and it would be a huge burden. Sorry for just throwing these ideas in a pretty unplanned out way, like i said i think my last message was better and less jumbled but, it was deleted... And these are just my thoughts on the game after reading... What 3 posts about it? Anyway, I hope you read all the way through this! xD

    2. can u put magmar and eletibuzz on both its too hard to get another game up to the top again

    3. The reason Pokemon are not on both probably is to encourage trades. So a Electabuzz you might wanna try to catch a extra Magmar or other Pokemon.

  29. Hey Sam! Thank you for providing PTD for an entire year! I have one quick question: when can we expect an updated challenge/achievement list? I wrote a comment in the last post wondering whether there would be an achievement for the Cinnabar Gym. Will there even be anymore achievements or challenges?

    Otherwise, congratulations on PTD's anniversary. Your next games are looking good so far!

  32. Hey Sam Will Ptd 2 Based on Hoenn Region Or johonto ? And Will Ptd 2 Have The Starters

    ReplyDelete
  33. Glad to have you back Sam! I love all 3 Ideas for PTD2.

    Blocking/Unblocking will give HM moves a good use, like my Golem could know Strength to block a path off so the enemy pokemon have to travel further to get to their objective.

    HM's could take part in the Special abilities too! Waterfall could cause a massive waterfall to flow in the opposite direction of the enemy pokemon slowing them for a duration.

    A couple other ideas I had were, Friendly waves! Like the Pokemon Tower 2, what if the giant snorlax was your ally and he was trying to save Maruto before the ghosts got to him. Or Maybe friendly pokemon could come in with enemy pokemon waves and buff your towers.

    Keep up the great work!

  34. Hey Sam....in ptd2 do we start all over again with pokemon starting with a starter like in ptd 1 if so, can we be able to transfer 1 of our ptd 1 pokemon into ptd 2???

    1. yes, you can transfer them after you beat a certain gym (I think it's the 4th one)

    2. Yes, it's the fourth gym.

    3. i think you should be able to transfer them at the beginning, but they will not listen to you if you haven't got the proper account of badges

      1) Zephyr Badge --> lv 20
      2) Hive Badge --> Lv 30
      3) Plain Badge
      4) Fog Badge --> Lv 50
      5) Storm Badge --> lv 70
      6) Mineral Badge
      7) Glacier Badge
      8) Rising Badge --> lv 100

      i looked this up at bulbapedia. this would also increase the value of badges
      i hope you will think about this

  35. Sam, I love the new update you going to do, like most of the people said it will be cool if you do the lvl cap for next wee so we have something to do also I was thinking you should add a special zone in the pokedex to put the dogs, victini and missingno. and to complete all the pokemons (since you going to add reg mew) in the game to add shadow missingno., shiny victini and shiny dogs!! also i see Mewthree it looks like a Mewtwo shiny I think add mewtwo shiny and shadow also help so we can hall all the pokemons in the game in his reg, shiny and shadow form! I think its a great idea that complete 100% the game. I really love your work, thx for this lovely year!

    1. Was it easy? I almost never get feedback on them, only if they are too hard. I'll try to make it challenging :) or maybe add optional hardness. Like you can beat it easy but to beat it perfect it's really hard.

    2. The last level wasn't that easy, not at first. Took me a while to realize that if you beat the Pokémon other than Groudon when they first come out and use non-damaging attacks, they won't respawn in the last wave.

      Delete
    3. Yeah, I beat it at the first try. Normally I have to scout the level first to see what's going on and adjust my team accordingly. But this time I just took my 6 highest level and beat it. Didn't even lose a candy. : )

      Also I think Yawn is pretty much op. 2 water attackers + snorlax and Groudon was no match at all. =)

      Delete
    4. Well, THAT would have been nice to know. I lost massively, thanks to two of almost everything in the level.

      Delete
    5. Sorry to disagree Missingno. Master but I also think that it was an extremely easy level

      1. I beat the level in two tries
      2. With all level 95 Pokemon and a little know-how and letting the level run through without putting in pokemon, it was an easy feat.
      3. I'm sooooo hungry but idk what to eat D:
      4. Also I was wondering if the level 100 update will also include a small level where it would be easier to level up to 100 because the level I use (Cinnibar Island with one Pokemon on top and ther rest on the bottom its an easy level 95 pokemon) it takes 2 tries to get the pokemon from 94-95, i cant even immagine with level 99-100
      5. I like pie, Do you like pie Sam? And what kind do you like?

  45. Hello Sam

    Since we are getting close to the grand finale, and i'm already getting sentimental I will like to sincerely thank you for the hours and hours of quality gaming time you provided to me. Not just me but thousands of others.
    I am a grown up man, I'm having a competitive masters degree and I've worked for a couple of years. I don't feel ashamed for playing a flash game, I feel lucky that I had that experience. It is really an achievement that you created a game that can be played for a variety of audience that have one trait in common: To love good gameplay. You should feel proud of that.
    I wish that every project of yours goes at least as well as this one did! Take care my friend and I'm sure I'll be hearing from you again:)

  49. Sam PLEASE Respond!

    I have been playing PTD for a long time and never experienced this, I already emailed you about it but you didn't respond. I've been trying to get into the game since the update, tried over 30 times and try a few times every once in a while, I keep getting the error page after clicking start! I cleared cache and have the right version etc. it just won't get into the game. It says retrieving profile for a while like normal but then it goes into error every single time.

    On a side note for the pokeballs since the poll went the way it did, maybe make it to where you have to buy the pokeballs, and the better the pokeball the higher HP the pokemon can have before you can catch it, for instance a normal pokeball the hp would have to be very low to catch, and if you buy a great ball it would only have to be about half, etc. and if you buy a masterball you can catch it instantly.

    Hope you know what the problem is :/

  51. Dear Sam,
    Make the Regular Mew on a certain spot on the screen, like really, really,really(hrs. later) rrrreeeeaaaalllyyyyy hard, i mean like 1 like 1 little small pixel, or you could just give the people who didn't Hacked(cough*M16*cough), or just do it simple and do another non-exciting mystery gift and we could get the mystery gift code from Pokemon tower defense wiki.Long sentences. i came up with these ideas, tell me what you think:

    1. Make a acheivment, like a random pick of the legendary you'll battle.

    2.SnD coins can also be earned different ways. Like defeating your lvl(rocket h.)at a certain lvl pokemons, without losing damaging and candy.

    3.Creating our own avatar, please do this one.

    4.Ptd is going to have Lance's Dragonite batttling Gold's Typhlosion/Raikou

    I almost read everything and i want to ask 3 things.

    1)I'm asking for that months and i really want it, i want team's rocket avatar please if you won't add all mystery gift because you said "I doubt I will bring back any of the past Weekly Gifts" just add as a reward when we become team's rocket member(Lavender Town) i start the game 3 weeks after that avatar.

    2)About regular Mew you will add as a mystery gift for a week, could you please do it so that we can use the code for 1 time per account, that will be better.

    3)I want a special avatar for the end, that we will get it if we beat the game or complete the dex(regular+shiny+shadow).

  79. Sam, you have got to add an icon for missingno to the pokemon center ASAP. There are far too many people changing its name to something like Suicune or now Mew and giving them TM moves that those pokemon learn. It hasn't fooled me but think of the young naive fan base you have with who might be losing very valuable pokemon to these scammers. This is a far worse problem than "team rocket" has ever been.

  82. Please make it easier to level up! Just personally, but some levels seem IMPOSSIBLE without the right type of pokemon. Then you gotta get that pokemon to a high level, which can take forever, and then you can maybe beat the level if you did it right. I only got through as much as I did with the hacked, and I hope the sequel can be a tad bit easier. Thanks!

  87. Will we be able to catch Lapras in the game? I was gone for some reason that week and have not been able to trade for it in the past month. It would be cool if you included it in the seafoam islands level! Thanks!

  91. Just to say, i feel that these ideas are amazing. PTD was very good so far, and i bet PTD2 will be better. Project ANPO sounds great (i cant wait) and I have to say, you are a big inspiration to me, as i would like to be a games designer when I'm older, and I like how you open it up to public opinion while you are still building it, and i feel thats how i would like to make my games if i manage to become a games desighner like you two. Good luck with PTD2 and project ANPO, really looking forward!

  92. Will the level of battle-ready pokemons you buy stay at 74? I want to know if i shall buy them now, or wait

  93. 1. I also think that you should revert Vermillion gym back to the way it was if you so choose, so that the more recent people don't feel left out.
    2. I loved having to use wirlwind to have to beat that level, it took me forever and it was great!
    3. And yet again I love pie! >:D
    4. Cya again Sam :P

  94. In the avatar store, you are able to buy avatars you allready own. Also it would be great if you added all the avatars, which where once able to get from mystery gift

  95. Sam when we transfer pokemon from PTD to PTD2 it should be at the end of the game. If you let us do it at the begining then everyone would just plow through the games with level 100s. I suggest adding a level after the elite four where you can transfer pokes from PTD1 to PTD2 like Poketransfer in Black/White.
    Best Pokemon Game ever and thank you so much!

  96. Hi Sam
    Quick question: Can you not have level 80 wild pokemon in PTD2? I mean, I trained a Grimer hard as a mystery gift, and then suddenly there's level 80 on Cinabarr island. In most Pokemon games the highest wild pokemon were in the high 50s. But here there in the 80s. My point is, in PTD2, could the strongest wild pokemon be level 60 maybe? Because in PTD1 there is a lot of grinding for level 80s at gym 7. Thanks Sam!

  99. sam if you inplent trading in ANPO can you make it to where they will be a little disobedient for a while? also in ptd will you make it to where you can only use the mystery gift code for a day so that it will be harder to get also make it with 16 digets or something.

  100. Missingno. MasterMarch 20, 2012 at 7:53 PM

    Sam, there's something that's been bugging me; the legendary dogs. I haven't been able to find any of them in the wild, ever. And I've gone through all the levels more than once, especially the training levels and the Safari Zone. Those I've gone through dozens (if not hundreds!) of times. I've seen and caught dozens of Shiny Pokémon, but not so much as one single legendary dog. Do they really appear in the wild, or are you messing with us? If they do, how rare did you make them? I understand you don't want to reveal the exact percentage to prevent hacking, but could you try to give me a vague idea of how often they show up?

  101. Sam,
    I think its about time for a hyper potion upgrade.

  102. Hey Sam,
    everything in there sounded great except for the regular mew part.I hate that its going to be given away can we make it a shadow missingno or at least have a poll about it?

    Anyway the rest of the blog sounded great, about ANPO is the game a pokemon universe or a general creature universe? Will the game still be made in Actionscript? and will it be a free game?

    Glad to see the final levels wont be rushed.Im still keeping my fingers crossed that power plant,seafoam island and victory road will be level like rock tunnel where you can make your own path and certain things have to be done to battle the birds (like onix in rock tunnel maybe in power plant you have to flick a switch, seafoam you have to move a boulder etc).Also will the Elite Four be battled in one playthrough or will each leader have its own level?

    Hope you can even read this, keep up the good work!
