Dtoid Game: Some Concepts, Your Thoughts?


So I quickly through these together, while listning to I KILL PXLS's "Drugs in my body" on loop. So my mind's been in a bit of an altered states, so some of these concepts may just be plain stupid.

I also thought it might be interesting to have terrain sections that move.
These moving sections would either speed up or slow down the creeps depending on the terrain's direction and the creep's direction.
This would make tactical tower positioning more interesting.
The towers would remain stationary regardless of terrain of course.

Other ideas I brainstormed:
-Having creeps be unaware of the proper fastest path to the base. Allowing them to make random decisions at intersections about which way to go, allowing the creator to make "mazes" of towers with dead ends etc. forcing the creeps to pull a 180 and head back the way they came. Also adding an element of chance to make the game more exciting.
-Money generating buildings that the creeps would seek out and attack, creating a secondary building needed to be protected by towers, also could be used as a diversionary tactic to draw some creeps away from the main base.
-I also had this really bad idea involving tetris. Falling tetris pieces would make up the grid, with towers placed on waiting tetris pieces and then the arrangement of the tetris pieces would mandate the arrangement of the towers.

Tower Ideas:
-A shaaaark tower that could be upgraded to a JAWESOME tower.
-Neonie tower and Tragic Hero tower, cause they wanted a tower game so damn much.
-Wiisucks tower, shooting spam posts everywhere.
-Sterling tower, with monocle whip attacks.
-A Rick Atsley tower, super powerful, but, when you place it the music starts playing quietly, the more Atsley towers, the louder it plays.
-I KILL PXLS tower, moderately powerful, used to counter the music of the Rick Atsley tower.
-K, idea well running dry, you want a tower, leave a comment or send me a message about what you'd want your tower to do. And well, I'll see what I can do.
