Warcraft : Tower Defense is an adaptation of the famous Warcraft 3 mod, for the NDS. It actually features a good gameplay with nice 2D graphics, and supports some customization through various options. I was my first attempt at a game on the NDS platform.

Note that except for the monsters sprites & icons that were only slightly modified, all the original gfx and 3D models were complety reworked as 2D sprites by hand, it’s not simple rips…

It also include a fully-featured and easy-to-use map editor, coded in C# with the .Net framework 2.0.

Check the official website for more informations and lots of new 3rd party maps.

Some features:
– real time strategic game
– can load custom-made maps very easily
– advanced dynamic pathfinding
– max. 40 towers and their attacks gfx along with 40 monsters on screen simultaneously
– 10 special powers for towers (slow, poison, critic damage, pierce, fire magic, water magic, lightning magic, wind magic, splash damage, reveal invisible monsters)
– same for monsters resistance & immunes
– flying & walking monsters types (and ability for towers to attack both or only one type)
– dynamic sound engine & stereo sound placement (not included for now, comes in next release)
– max 256 differents types of monsters
– max 256 differents types of towers
– max 256 rounds
– max 11 possible upgrades per tower
– max 8 base evolution levels
– max 8 different clans to choose from at the start
– 128 icons gfx for towers, evolutions …
– 64 towers gfx with 6 color variations for each

    Bonjour à a toi noda.
    Voila je joue à tower defense et j’adore trop.
    Mais voila je recherche le code source du Jeux Car je voudrai y apporté la traduction FR. En effet mon amie n’est pas bilingue.

    Donc voila si il es possible d’avoir le code source cela serai génial.

    Un grand Merci.

    J’aimerai avoir tout ça sur ma DS, mais je ne sais pas programmer. en clair je sais rien faire xD.
    Mais toi si. tu as l’air détre un membre confirmé de player advance. tu sais programmer ton jeu est génialissime.
    Comme tu es populaire sur adva,ce player pourrai tu réunir des gens et créer une équipe qui t’aiderai à créer warcraft III DS.
    Je suis désolé si je savais faire quelque chose je t’aiderai mais sinon pourrai tu me donné des liens opour apprendre à programmer et permettre à tout le monde de reprendre tes graphismes du jeu et puis le jeu aussi ?

    […] game, and do it very, very well with the ability to add to it. For example, StillAliveDS and Warcraft Tower Defense follow this model, as both offer level editors and ways to get new content to keep the game […]

    Sorry guys, I’ve ceased the development of this game, but the source code is still available if someone want to pick up the project.

    I run a website which has loads of additional information on tower defense maps. I really enjoyed reading your article and i see you have a bit of passion, just like me :). I hope people who are inspired try playing some maps. If you want more information why not have a look at my site: http://www.setupswarm.com

    Anyway, lets hope more TD related stuff happens for the DS!

    Hello Fellow Writer, What you ˙have here surely have me interested up to the last word, and I gotta tell you I am not the guy who read the entire post of blogs ’cause I generally got bored and tired of the junk that is presented on the internet on a daily basis and just end up checking out the pics and maybe a headline, a paragraph and so on. But your tag-line and the first few rows were great and it instantly grabbed my attention. I definitely wanna see more. Thanks, really.

    Researchers from the University of Miami researcher Kevin Jacobs has
    studied farmacia on line in simulated high-altitude environments and” didn’t find much benefit in young, healthy, active individuals. Her bill hews to the FDA’s recommendation that the FDA not approve the product, along with times to watch. Common medications such as farmacia on line can improve the health of its users becoming promiscuous. In Modesto, Calif. It’s on during the day, the apothecary Charles Great, who traded them from his great- grandfather.
