Tree Fort Defense is slingshot physics in a tower defense style scenario with selectable weapons and upgradeable defenses.
Tree Fort Defense is a mobile game based on tried and true genres of gaming mixed together. Take slingshot physics and an onslaught of mythological enemies and you get the point of the game.
This will also be a “freemium” based game, meaning that it will be free to download, and free to play, but you can purchase in game items with real world money through micro transactions.
So what do we need money for if we’re making a free game? We need to fund the development of this so we can get an original theme song, licenses for publishing on platforms that cost money, and other necessary costs of creation. After the initial release of the game, it will hopefully become self-sufficient and we can continue to release more levels.
But that’s not why you’re reading this; you want to know about the game, don’t you‽ (yes, that's an interrobang!)
The premise is simple; protect your tree fort with your trusty sling shot and whatever things you can grab to shoot out of it.
Enemies based upon the lore of the level stream towards you with varying health stats. They drop coins and sometimes unique ammunition. You can select the different ammo on the fly through a touch navigated control system at the top of the screen. Between each round you can also rebuild your defenses, buy more supplies, and purchase extra ammo.
Speaking of ammo, each level has 4 different types of ammunition with effects unique to the location. The first type is basic, and can be enhanced with power ups purchased from the menu. The second type is trick shot; tap the screen during its flight path to see what it does. The third type is splash damage, it spreads when it impacts a target. Last is a unique, heavy damage that manifest once it hits the target, be it ground or enemy.
The initial release of the game will have 2 worlds (called Locations), and each world will have multiple levels (called Waves), with further updates to occur every few months, as long as we can financially sustain the development of the game based on micro transaction sales.
Please donate, and encourage your friends to do the same. We receive none of this money without reaching the full amount, and your donations could fund the next great game for the mobile platforms!
Thank you all for viewing, and please plant a tree for future tree houses.
