Yup, another project of mine. But this one will be easier to create and maybe more multiplayer fun! :p
I call it: DEFEND YOUR CASTLE!
Which castle? Well, your king and his people were kidnapped and you and your friends are their only hope: Defend the castle from those bloody Swamp Sacks! But how? Traps! If that doesn't work? USE MORE TRAPS. But the Swamp Sacks are not your only problem: Theres hunters as well! The only thing they want: Your brain. And your leg, because its tasty. They don't care about destroying your castle, they want to destroy you and your men. Yep, your men. You can hire people who shoot arrows at your enemies too! Now for the important part: You can build different traps, for example Jump Traps, Push Traps, Spike Traps and more. You have 1 minute time for that. After that, the enemies will destroy the doors and get into your castle. There will be more and more waves and more and more enemies. 'But can't I just place traps everywhere so no enemies can get past?' No, silly! First, you won't have enough money for that. Second, they CAN and WILL destroy your traps. So yeah, you could describe Defend your castle! as a lifetime tower defense game. I know, story sucks, but its not supposed to have a good story. I want it to be one of those games you play with your friends and have fun. So well, I hope this project is more interesting for you guys. Any suggestions? Tell me, I'd love to hear them!

Hi, I had no problems with logic until now, but if I should get any problems I can't solve, I will ask you! :)

sounds like the game 'orcs must die!' could be fun if you do it right, but what will stop the enemies slowly destroying all the traps then just marching up to you unassailed?

Well, they will only destroy them if they are directly in front of them. This is to prevent players to build a wall out of traps. Their MAIN goal is to destroy the castle. Now you will think 'How do they get past the traps then?' Well, hunters. That, and they can get trapped by many traps at the same time, but they can't get trapped by the same trap they were trapped before without waiting five seconds.

That sounds like a cool project. I like the idea about the traps. What type of enemies will you have to face?

At the moment I think about 3:
Normal Swamp Sacks, who only care about destroying your castle with a sword.
Hunters, who do everything except for destroying the castle. That means they destroy your traps, kill your troops and you and your friends.
Crossbow Swamp Sacks, who do the same as Normal Swamp Sacks but shoot magic arrows which follow you.
If you have any suggestions, feel free to tell me!

Just thought I'd show you what I made till now! This picture shows character, health, cash, trap selection and a proof that you can place them however you like. I use the jump trap in this example.

Woo, new stuff!

Added the hunter. Its a hairy, ugly wolf. Takes 5 shots to take down with arrows.

THE MENU.
You have 3 options:
Go! - Self explanation.
Help - This explains how the game works and controls. THIS IS RECOMMENDED FOR ANYONE THAT HASNT PLAYED THIS BEFORE BECAUSE THE GAME WILL BE NO FUN IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW IT WORKS.
Credits - Shows the awesome people who helped me create this game.
Also, there's a little display to show how many Sacks there are. I could make the game harder the more Sacks there are. But not now.

FIRE TRAP! This guarantees death for your enemies... but as fire doesn't kill at once, they have 15 seconds to kill you before they die a painful death. This one is pretty cool, in my opinion.

THE INFAMOUS, INCREDIBLE, FANTASTIC, SUPERCALIFRAG- the Explosive Barrel!
What it does? Well, it explodes if you shoot it with an arrow. That kills enemies. If you do it right you can kill over 7 enemies at once! But remember, you can only shoot it once if you don't want to put the pieces of wood together again...

THE SHOCK TRAP!
This, my friend, has the power of Chuck Norris' Roundhousekick. No really, it absorbed its power. Because of this incredible power, enemies can't do anything when they touch it! After that you have 3 seconds time to kill them with all you got. Pretty cool huh?
Any suggestions?

I added 4 new traps!
Piece-a-Nature - This is... a piece of nature. If an enemy hits it it explodes. Sounds pretty useless? But it isnt. Because of its beauty the enemy will stop hunting you and start hunting the other enemies! So basically, it makes an enemy an ally! I really love this trap, especially with LolliBOOMS :D

LolliBOOM - It is a lollipop. 'USELESS!!!!!' No. Because everyone likes lollipops your enemies will eat 5 of those. What it does? Hehehe. EXPLOSIVE LOLLIPOPS. If they eat them they are a running bomb, as soon as they touch another enemy both will explode! This one is so evil but cool! :P

Remote Arrow Dispenser - It does what it says. It's an arrow dispenser, but you can remote control it using your cursor! I wanted this so you can still shoot enemies while you just chill on top and watch everything :D
http://s1.directupload.net/images/110804/vxrzi77e.jpg (http://www.directupload.net)
Its in the bottom.
Troops - I SHALL SERVE THEE FROM NOW ON, MY HOLY MASTER. These are like you. Just that they can't move and only shoot arrows. So basically, they look for an enemy and shoot arrows at him. If an enemy comes too near, they will try to dodge by running back. I really love those little guys :D

NEW ENEMIES!
http://s7.directupload.net/images/110804/x3wzna3r.jpg (http://www.directupload.net)
From top to bottom: Hunter, Sword Swamp Sack, Crossbow Swamp Sack, Golem
DESCRIPTION
Hunter - You know these already. They will destroy anything good, except for traps.
Sword Swamp Sacks - These guys were hard to program but its worth it. I created a waypoint system just for them. This means I can place waypoints everywhere and they will follow them in a row. This means: - Go to waypoint 1 - Arrive at Waypoint 1 - Go to Waypoint 2 - Arrive at Waypoint 2 - Go to Waypoint 3
And so on. They will only attack if you are in their way. Piece of nature works for them, but they won't move.
Crossbow Swamp Sacks - These guys follow you only to shoot you with arrows. They can shoot exploding barrels as well, but that doesn't hurt you lol. I like to describe them as a hunter, but with arrows.
Golem - Now these guys are tough. They are ignorant and will only hunt for your traps. I don't know why. Maybe they are stupid. Or maybe its because they got no heart. But they do it darn well. I hate those enemies myself because their sword is so god darn big and they are so annoying! But I did a good job if they even annoy me, their creator :D

DARNIT! I could cry, really :(
The level is like at 98% progress now. I got almost everything done, even a map. But now I can't enter the controllinator in the beginning? Really?
