Python PyGame Tower Defence - 0.5.7
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!
[To be released by: 5 April, 2010] [Actually released on: 1 April, 2010]
- Wave 11a-20a of Map Simple and Curvy are still not balanced.
- Updating readme.txt.
- Adding better documentation for the mapmaker.
- Added a bit more comments.
- Introduced feature of towers needing 'power' from a link to the base.
- Added 'Node' tower, which can extend powered area.
- 'Power' feature removed, too complex at this point.
- Building class created. This is the backend for any structures that aren't towers.
- Changed enemy speed from 3 times the speed value in mapproperties to just the value in mapproperties. This allows greater and easier customization of enemies' speed.
- Fixed bug where map would end if there were only enemies coming from 'c' and/or 'd' paths.
- Hopefully fixed a bug where the next map would load in a small window, but this is unlikely.
- Fixed the next-map-small-screen bug, but have realized that switching maps is going to be a whole lot more complex than I had expected. I'm declaring that to be a "Not-yet-implemented Feature" for the time being.
- Minor update to mapmaker: Can't save without a base (avoids a common error). Also, added began adding step by step instructions to the top of the screen.
- Added Poison tower.
- Enemies will have a green health bar when poisoned.

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!

ImportError: No module named Rewards
It seems one file missed from the zipball?

Great Game, but can you include python 3 builds?
