hey Im having trouble running the source code. I was able to import it but I cant get eclipse to run it as a java application. Maybe there is something wrong with the build path but I wouldn't know which element to right click to edit that or what to edit it to

Developer

I'm unfamiliar with eclipse and can't really help you. The issue is probably that it can't find the libGDX dependencies. If you use IntelliJ Idea, it should be able to open the project and figure it out. If IntelliJ is not an option, I'd look into importing the gradle scripts, because that'll probably help. Unfortunately, I haven't really used Java in awhile, so I don't think I'll be able to help you much more than that.

Nice tower defense! I included it in my LibGDX Jam compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)

Great game! I really got into it!

Nice tower defence game! I do think the balancing could be improved as it was too easy to defend. I also could not really find any strategy in the game. I still don't know if any combination of red yellow and blue towers does anything specific for my defence. Still, well done!

Host

Solid TD game. The resource mechanics via generators was quite cool and added an additional balancing aspect to the game. The graphical representation was more than adequat, albeit a tiny bit bland. Not complaining, i couldn't have done it any better :D

Good ol' Tower D! Love that there is no flying units and you can just obliterate everything. I do wish there was an end round and the units were a little bit bigger, but overall really fun! Played and an hour already flew by :)
