Back in Action and Surfs Up!
Hello everyone! It has been a long time since the last blog post and a true content update for the game. I must apologize and admit that after the long holiday vacation (Christmas and New Years), I have gotten quite rusty. The good news is that I'm picking up speed and removing all the rust that I have and slowly but surely I'm working on to finishing PTD2 and continuing work on other projects.

The game has reached the point where we need surf to to advance the story. I have wrestled long and hard about how I might implement this feature into the game. I have finally been able to experiment with a few things that I think will work quite well. Essentially you will be able to ride your pokemon in the water. To reach new areas that you couldn't access before.
Testing the surf functionality with a Simisear
Because this new mechanic will add access to new areas I will need more time to create those areas. My hope is that I will be able to complete these areas this week and release it this weekend. I will work my hardest to meet this goal but I can't promise that I will make it in time.

Mystery Gift
Like most weeks there will also be a Mystery Gift this week. Like other Mystery Gifts you can vote for which type and which specific pokemon you want it to be.

Fundraiser and Subscription Update
Since I'm still getting back in gear with updates I will keep the fundraiser active for a while longer and the subscriptions are still on hold until I can build some of the functionality required to get them going. Please be patient these things take time.

Thanks!
This new year is starting out and I just wanted to personally thank all of you for all the support that you have given me all this time. I know that this year will be better than ever! None of this would be possible without your support. Thanks for playing!

  1. It's Gold and Silver, not HeartGold and SoulSilver. Also, the game has not reached the point at which we are able to catch Skaramory - anywhere.

  2. i know we didn't reached that point kevin i said if we reach that point start thinking about what ur going to reply when u reply it dude. I also know in the original versions it's gold silver and crystal offcourse we only can choose from gold and silver but in the new versions it's called heartgold and soulsilver but hey if ur so upset about i'll call it gold and silver now.

  3. Please sam fix the Playtowerdefencegames.com PTD 1, it's giving old version error but the multiplayer is only avaible there...

    ReplyDelete
  4. it's uncalled for to say no ice pokemon are good. if u want a few examples of good ice pokes: lapras, beartic, kyurem , mawomswine.

    ReplyDelete
  5. you need to play on the blog

    ReplyDelete
  6. It's not okay to make ad for specific types

    ReplyDelete
  7. When we are able to get skarmory in one of the versions then it will also available in the Trade Center. would be easy to get it in trade since it would be then a wild pokemon. Or you make yourself a new profile.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yes but the multiplayer is only available at playtowerdefencegames.com, it doesn't work at the blog...

    ReplyDelete
  9. Yes but the multiplayer is only available at the Playtowerdefensegames.com site, not in the blog...

  10. I wanted a magmar cause i couldn't have it cause i played the wrong version so i wanted it to trade it for electabuz but everybody in the pokecenter just askes shiny shadow and rare pokes. I could play it again with another account but it would take a while to redo everything so trading takes less time.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I agree about the part grass would be better but still you can't say the other type is bad and also Lapras will never be an mystery gift and Beartic Kyurem are available already Mamoswine not.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Great. Sam can you fix the move Defog for Rufflet and Braviary due to stage/level crashing?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Somebody AnonymousJanuary 14, 2014 at 5:09 PM

    It's a new blog post, lets not spam this with comments about trades or whether someone is one. Sam needs to be able to see posts about bugs, suggestions, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  14. i geuss thats tru but your not the person in charch about this web site

    ReplyDelete
  15. Sure I will look into it

    ReplyDelete
  16. What part of only available on playtowerdefensegames.com did you not get?

    ReplyDelete
  17. It's only the sensible thing to call it gold and silver, as those two are the only choices of versions. And what you said in the comment is pretty ambigous. "start thinking about what ur going to reply when u reply it dude." or, before that, start thinking.

    ReplyDelete
  18. He means the creators blog, not the sponsor's site!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sam for the next birthday legendary could you make it Arceus and the giveaway be an Arceus Dragon.

  24. Hi everybody, this is Machine Doll.

    We are trying to create a group we people around the world can trade.
    You have so many rare pokemon, but few people are aware of your post.
    Join our group to easily find trainers to trade!

    As a newcomers' gift, post the following message in the group after we accept you:
    "Dear Machine Doll,
    My favourite pokemon is _____________ (e.g. shiny Suicune)
    Trade id: ____________ (any pokemon you want to trade with me, preferrably autotrade)"

    You will receive the pokemon you want!

    If you don't like any pokemon, just state "I love money!" instead of "My favourite pokemon is _____________"
    You can receive 10 Sndcoins.
    Give me the trade id for any pokemon for 10 Sndcoins.


    Anyone can receive this gift once they join the group.

  25. Hey Sam could you maybe change the move animation for double hit cause it looks exactly the same as fury swipes and sometimes confusing,

    ReplyDelete
  26. Sam , can you finish it at this thursday ? Please reply me ....

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hey Im just wondering if there is a ptd1 apk that will work cause everything I've found doesnt work and im not always on my computer and I would at least like to play the first ptd on the go. Thanks in advanced

    ReplyDelete
  28. sam! you do not think these new areas should not be something special, for example in the ruins of alph we could catch one of the legendary dogs, as it entei that at the beginning of the game we battle against, we already have 6 badjes, I think I ta the time we catch one legendary.

    Thank you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. there isn't one that works at the moment but I do want to make one in the future

    ReplyDelete
  30. I hope I can but unlikely

    ReplyDelete
  31. what ice types are left really? ik snover is one, but yet there really isnt any other ice types unless u count the legendary pokemon Regice and the X & Y pokemon (which i doubt.)

    ReplyDelete
  32. People who grew up with gold and silver will say gold and silver more likely then the 1's who grew up with hg and ss. but why are we arguing about that, hg and ss are just remakes there weren't that big chances so what does it matter.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sam, can you fix level 100?, when it´s complete, it restarts again. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  34. See, I was just pointing out that the proper name for the PTD 2 versions are gold and silver, and you decided to tell me to start thiking.

    ReplyDelete
  35. How can I level up Wobbuffet?

    ReplyDelete
  36. im just wondering but i already defeated chuck and jasmine so do i have to beat them again to get surf?

    ReplyDelete
  37. I thought the last Ice Mystery Gift used up all our options? Unless... are we getting Bergmite? :D

    ReplyDelete
