Extra Polishing Week! Map comes to PTD2, Login Feature for Champions!

Want to get the Shiny Starters? Shiny Zorua? Shiny legendary dogs? Shiny Mew? or any other shiny pokemon in the game? Adopt them today using SnD coins! Click here for more info.

Visit the PTD: Pokemon Center - a place to trade pokemon, get your Daily Code, adopt Pokemon, view your items and change your avatar!

Welcome to the Sam and Dan Games Developer Blog!

PTD2 Trainer Pass! Get it today!

A great way to support us while getting amazing rewards!

So let's talk about what you get:
  • Increased chance for Shiny/Shadow pokemon to appear in the wild
  • No ads while you play the game
  • Get a copy of shiny giveaway pokemon automatically every week
  • Faster Breeding - Breed with only one visit instead of 2, essentially breed something everyday!

You decide what happens!
After the next level of Champions you will face a boss. I wanted to involve you guys and gals in shaping the story of the game. You will fight the boss and bring it down to 0 health and earn loot but it is up to you to vote whether you really defeated the boss for good or if it comes back and chases you out of its cave! This will definitely change the story after that event so choose wisely!

Extra Polishing Week!
Every once in a while, when developing games, you need to stop adding new content and polish what you have so far. This is one of those times.

For PTD2 I've been wanting to add a Map to the game for a long time. Also if I want to add the Fly feature we needed some kind of map for selecting where you want to go. It can also tell players just starting or players that haven't finished the story where to go to continue it. I've heard of some players simply not knowing where to go. So this should help. Along with that I've been getting a lot of request for letting the player pick which invasion they are currently facing and so this week I will do just that. Also to go back to Johto pokemon if desired.

For Champions TD, I hope to add the Login feature this week. Many have reported not being able to save their progress due to their browsers being set for not storing data. I'll be using Flox as my backend. It runs on the cloud so there shouldn't be many problems too many people trying to save, so it should be  WAYYYY smoother than PTD ever was. It cost money to get this service running but I know it is worth it for you guys and gals to have it for free. Along with that I've been meaning to have unique colors for item icons so you can tell right away which item is what or at the very least know that two items are not the same without having to check their stats. I have other things on my list also that I'll add if I get to finish these with time left.

There were a few bugs in the last release for Champions that I'm fixing sooner than that other update. See below for more info.

Weekly Progress

Champions TD v0.05 - Login Feature and polish! - Released!
  • Cloud Saves by log in in (100%) - need to create a new account and your email must be valid. (Don't worry no spam will be sent to your email.)
  • Different Item Icons for items to be able to easily tell them apart (100%)
  • Game Loader (100%)- Easier way to make sure the latest version loads without having to refresh browser
  • Recruit Expanded (100%) - Be able to recruit any previous level's recruits in your current level. So if you play level 2 you get to recruit level 1 + 2. If you play level 3 you get to recruit level 3 + 2 + 1. That way you don't have to go back to a level just to recruit. Later on I will add recruiting to the map menu.
  • Longer levels (level 1 only for now more in coming weeks) (100%) - levels will have more waves, giving you more chance to get the gear you need without having to restart the level.
  • Better loot system (100%) - having an ever increasing chance to get loot in a level. Certain units now always drop loot, or have a higher chance to their specific drop loot. Certain units have an increased chance to make general loot drop.
  • All Tents in Level 2 now have 5 spots available (100%) - In hindsight you need everything you can get.
Champions TD v0.04.1 - Bug Fixes - Released!
  • Dark Urn added to the normal loot table (100%)
  • Reduce the amount of boar ribs required for bear and brute (100%)
  • Fix a bug with Brutes/Hunters stopping and not moving (100%)
  • Lower the amount of strength enemy Brutes have (100%)
  • Fixed a bug with wrong unit graphic showing up on the equip screen (100%)
  • Bandit Boss's lacky will no longer be able to receive experience points (100%)
PTD2 v1.81  - Map Feature and Pick your Invasion - Released!
  • Map Feature (0%) Moved to later update- A map that will tell you where to go next for players that haven't beaten the story mode. Later on it will also work with Fly to move around the map faster.
  • Pick your Invasion (100%) - Be able to change which invasion you face or return it back to Johto.
So that's what we are working on this week, got any ideas or feedback for this week's update let me know!

    ReplyDelete
  7. i want that too

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hey Riven I was wandering if you were going to clone the shiny eevee and shadow Riolu I gave to you. I kinda need my shadow Riolu cause I didnt evolve him into shadow Lucario.

    ReplyDelete
  9. You use a square and a triangle to form the pentagon for placing the units in CTD.
    Example:The square faces the incoming enemies and triangle is directed away from them and vice-versa, making it so that the side of triangle (coinciding with the square) is perpendicular to the route the enemies take, giving us more strategic options.
    The current way of aligning all the pentagons in the same direction makes them kinda disoriented in case of inclined routes.
    Orienting the placements properly and giving us an option to rotate them by 90o or 180o depending on the geometric figure(as stated in the example above) will appreciated.

    ReplyDelete
  10. not in the plans at the moment

    ReplyDelete
  11. I do plan to make levels with multiple towers near each other to allow better placements, something that would be cool without adding too much extra complication for the player is for tower to be able to have different setups depending on the map

    ReplyDelete
  12. When we click on one of the tents, 5 positions in the shape of a pentagon appear and that decides the position of the units, as long as the route the enemies take is vertical its fine, but when the route gets inclined or horizontal, the positions become disoriented with respect to that path.
    When the path is vertical, I can put 2 high hp/armor units at the top, two ranged units in the middle and one healer behind, this is not possible when the path becomes inclined or horizontal since the vertical pentagon does not change its orientation with the inclined routes. If we can invert it, we can have a high hp/armor unit in front backed by 2 ranged units backed by two healers, this allows more strategic options...

  13. My game stays one update back. The timothy thing is there, no level 3 and it's awful.

  19. Sam: Are you going to add the Unova and Kalos Pokemon in an invasion or are you just going to have this be the last from this game? Anyone: I am lost on finding the rest of the Pokemon from the invasions. If you guys can help maybe we can update the PTD Wiki to help everyone. thanks

    ReplyDelete
  20. hello @samotero, i have idea for babies pokemon: If you put breed-item in pokemon evolution, you devolved in baby pokemon. For example: I put lax incense in snorlax, deevolve snorlax, and appear munchlax.
    Is good idea no? :D

    ReplyDelete
  21. Sorry, i fail: I put full incese in snorlax, deevoled this snorlax, and appear munchlax.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Occasionally, a frozen unit will stay perpetually frozen out of range of any attacks other than the freeze, making the level unbeatable.

    ReplyDelete
  23. 151022783dcc09 1507ceaee231fd 15243bd2675efe.

    ReplyDelete
  24. you mean the big frozen block?

    ReplyDelete
  25. why not just breed?

    ReplyDelete
  26. on the other hand maybe you want to keep it shiny or shadow

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm adding unova and kalos and even kanto

    ReplyDelete
  28. try reloading the game

    ReplyDelete
  29. you mean champions gold?

    ReplyDelete
  30. try a different browser, also I'm adding a loader soon that should fix things

    ReplyDelete
  31. right I see what you are saying, there might be some ways I can fix this :) thanks for the great feedback!

    ReplyDelete
  32. That woul be good

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hey Mateo Ferretto I still play PTD 1.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Well giving you upvotes was like easy it only took me maximum 20-25 min so that was not a big prob but if you want to help me and i don't play ptd then i have an easy way for you just two min and you will give me 30 votes just get your mouse on my profile pic and click full profile then like my comments so we would be equal

    ReplyDelete
  35. yes, for example I put a shiny snorlax + full incese and deevolve in shiny munchlax. It's very useful:
    A lot of players have, for example, shiny snorlax (or woobufett, sudowodoo, etc...), and don't interest much in babies pokemon, but this option you obtain a baby, and you can complete the Pokedex / hof.

    And, the other advantage: You have breed other pokemon (for example i breed in this moment shiny ditto + gold incese and snivy + gold incense. I concentrate in other shinies, but this option, help obtain a babies (regulars, shinies, and shadows).

    I hope understand, and it convinces the idea.

    ReplyDelete
  36. is ptd 1 working again?

    ReplyDelete
  37. If it is, It isn't working on my computer!

    ReplyDelete
  38. server went down for a bit

    ReplyDelete
  39. sam let me tell you i love the idea of switching the invasions and the map, when i was trying to finish the game i really wanted a map and i think it will be great for the people thats more new at gen II stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  40. can you tel me what you do? i might give you some of my pokemon id but first i want to know what you do, i just give you the id and you clone the pokemon or what?

    ReplyDelete
  41. i started playing the game like a month ago and i discovered that you made (cant remember the name) something like a search where you get a clue/riddle, and if you resolve it it takes you to another clue/riddle until you reach the end where you get a pokemon, i think it was shiny. can you make it again? exactly same thing, or different if you want so i and the ones that started playing after you did it can play it.

    ReplyDelete
  42. ok, you are really inspired with the pentagons, you alredy planed the hole thing lol.

    ReplyDelete
  43. can you also make it with ptd 2 gold? but more expensive than 5 gold 1 SnD coin, because i have like 70k gold and 0 SnD coins and i really want some SnD coins.

    ReplyDelete
  44. glad you like it :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. it's for buneary which is accessible in the invasion

    ReplyDelete
  46. I have Id Ill give it to you.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Ok I think I'm done.

    ReplyDelete
  48. It's not a horrible idea but at the same time it would cut down on any profit that I might make which in other words means I won't be able to work on the game anymore

    ReplyDelete
  49. Also offering a special shiny Victini so just send me your best offers and Ill accept if I need it.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hey guys I am thinking of trading a shadow and shiny Riolu for a worthy pokemon thanks to a friend of mine. Tell me what pokemon you want to trade and I might accept your offer. If its SnD coins then tell me how many and I might accept that too.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Dude so you saw that too huh. You saw it first then. When I saw that my eyes were popping out I was soooooo ecstatic, it was amazing I felt so awesome. But anyway the way I did it was through this website http://oteropictures.blogspot.com.au/ you know how Joel has competitions to win a trainer pass I entered and he gave me a free pass. I had to respond to his question to win which was what was the best character of all time. And so I responded and I guess he chose me randomly and that's how I won. :D

    ReplyDelete
  131. Right now the question is What is your favorite animated movie or TV show?

    ReplyDelete
  139. thats what i wrote

    ReplyDelete
  140. My favourite anime movie is dragon ball z battle of gods and pokemon movie
    13. The reason i like that pokemon movie is because it talks about some
    people who wants to seperate a family( zuroa and zuroark) and the
    zoroark is doing everything to be again with his child, even face the
    legendary dogs. And about the dragon ball movie, i love it cause it is
    having too much action and even if they know that they don;t stand a
    chance agains lord bill they keep trying.
    My favourite TV show is 2 and a half man, because every time i watch it i burst into laughs

    ReplyDelete

  156. very nice game

    ReplyDelete
  157. Hey Sam how do u get ur pokemon to lvl up above 100?

    ReplyDelete
  158. Hey Sam, I'm a HUGE fan, and I wanted to make some requests for PTD2. I wanted to ask for a few pokemon. For one thing, I think that the legends that appear should have a wider variety instead of just the three legendary dogs, like adding the legendary birds to the play. Also, I would appreciate having a place where you could buy mega stones for 100,000 in game or with money. Another thing is that I have an idea for the closed caves that are having lights installed by the dragon gym. I thing that from that point, some X and Y Pokemon would be possible so find, but like dunesparce
    If you read this, please consider this. It would be great to talk to you, so my email is Zavierpedia@gmail.com. I have a minor coding degree and wanna help out. Thanks for reading!
