Python PyGame Tower Defence - 0.5.4
A TD implemented in python and pygame.
There are only seven maps thus far, and only three playable. I have not put great effort into balancing them yet, as things change constantly. That said, I played through all of them before releasing this and found them to be fairly spot-on in difficulty, if a bit lacking in variety. Balance will not be a top priority until the Beta, version 0.9.
The art is nowhere close to tops and there is no sound whatsoever. I am neither an artist nor musician. If anyone would like to contribute either, I would happily give credit for your work.
Comments are welcome and encouraged!
- Changed HP back to losing one everytime an enemy leaves the screen. You now start with 20 HP, and gain 0.25 HP per turn.
- Has a "Next Wave" button. Does exactly what you think it does.
- Implemented the 'slow' ability for towers. It's pretty awesome :D
- Changed the 'range' price. Its now 20, plus 20 for each range upgrade.
- Added 'super slow' ability for towers. 'slow' brings enemies to 75% of their speed for 1.25 seconds; while 'super slow' brings enemies to 50% of their speed for 2 seconds.
- New support for multiple enemy paths in a map.
- Pausing has been removed. There are no timers anymore, just hit "Next Wave" whenever you want a new wave to come and take as much time between as you'd like!
- Can have waves where the enemies come from different paths simultaneously.
- Tower is now a base class for all towers, each of which will be a different class.
- Testing of selected is now based on __class__ object instead of __name__ for Icon and Menu, and is based on containing Tower in __bases__ for Tower. This is more accurate, better code, and will lead to better performance and adaptability in the future.
- Icon class now holds a type and the type's towerstats.
- towerstats has become Basictowerstats, and Slowtowerstats has been created.
- SlowTower class created.
- Trimmed down the project folder. I hadn't realized how much extra, useless crap there was just lingering in it.
- Towers now generate their upgrade/sell buttons. This will make it easier to add new upgrades for other towers.
- Slow towers can now upgrade the 'amount of slow' applied to enemies, and how long it lasts.
- Enemies' move modified for accuracy (can now handle float movement), and speed coefficients made equal (they move the same distance whether vertical or horizontal).

Got it running, that was my fault... but Rewards.py is def. missing

Thanks for the support, Dylan!
Steve, Rewards.py isn't used in version 0.8.3. I replaced that whole mess with the Player Upgrade Screen, accessed by right-clicking on the XP Bar. If you're getting an import error, just remove the "import Random" line near the top of localdefs.py. I think that's the only one I missed.
Thanks for all the feedback, guys!

Great Game, but can you include python 3 builds?
