I know that these are EXTREMELY rare to come by, and there probably won't be one like this released ever again, a turret defense example! it's for users that are pretty good at GML, so if you've always wanted to make a turret defense game but you never could make one because you are either too damn lazy or never knew where to start, this is for you! i have included information on most of the coding and explains what it'll do, so please DL it and rate. =D

This will also be submitted to the gamemaker community, and probably will be the last thing i ever submit there, so also keep that in mind.

if alot of people love it, i might update it with some effect turrets and more features, so please tell everyone about this example!
FazzeL for the HP bars!

Nice, well presented but you should give more instruction on what to do, took me a few min's to work it out. 7/10
V commented September 08, 2006 at 10:11 PM
i'll be sure to keep that in mind next time, but thanks for letting me know. =) 23 downloads already. =o

Nice, but i couldn't get the second and third turret to work
V commented September 08, 2006 at 11:33 PM
second and 3rd? hm. I left the third turret in there aimlessly i think, and the second turret wouldn't work, i would not know. did you make sure you had 20 gold and above lvl 5?

I tried adding a rocket turret, it worked fairly well, i tihnk you should turn this into a script library so it's easier.

wow cool
V commented September 09, 2006 at 2:15 AM
ah, cool. I'll consider it, since it would probably make creating multiple turrets alot easier. maybe one pair of scripts for normal bullets and anouther for targeted. thanks for the cool comments guys. =)

100th download here!
It is pretty cool.

Its Fun Game, But easy!
BenRK commented September 24, 2006 at 7:22 PM
It was too easy for me. I was at level 36 when I realised, "Hey, they arn't making it past the FIRST blockade of mine." So I made it so their HP increases with every level up to 40. I think I'll make a system where the things constantly get harder and harder, seeing as even at lv 40 (with 800 HP), NONE of them could make it past my "Machine gun row," let alone get past my ending turrets (lots of turrets there). Though I still liked it enough to be a game. This has inspired me to make my own Turret Deffence game!

That's really cool! It's good enough to be a game all on it's own.

8.4/10 (8)

punimer_gm commented October 07, 2006 at 5:59 PM

kl firework effect if u place turrets on a warp point like this:
hhhhhh r+reg.turret
hcccch c+chaingun
hcrrch h+heavy gun
hcrrch note:the reg.turrets are on the warp point
V commented October 13, 2006 at 3:36 PM

LoserHands commented October 19, 2006 at 11:08 PM
Wow, that is awesome, please make a game out of this!
DeadlyGuy77 commented October 29, 2006 at 8:01 PM
-It's great, but the game would get slower and slower as time passed by
V commented November 27, 2006 at 4:02 PM
