Jurassic Survival Prototype 1.2


Didn't make too many changes this week.  I just added some background music, a new sprite for the player (was taken from Warcraft II hope no copyright issues since this game is not for commercial use), and some explosions when units die.  I have a to-do list that I hope to get done in the next couple weeks.  Some things I need to add are: better building mechanics with proper zoning, some new towers and units, edge scrolling to look around the map,new sprites for towers and dinosaurs, and instead of free gold every 5 seconds there should be random gold piles to pick up around the map.

Jurassic Survival: Prototype #1

Jurassic Survival:

Just completed the first prototype for the game Jurassic Survival.  Forgive my crude stick drawings, but I was not able to find the right images for the game objects at the time.  I will import better images in my next prototype.  The basic mechanics of the gun turrets are there, but I would like to create a wider variety of towers to choose from.  Instead of the current gold every five seconds I should make the player gather resources around the map.  This will encourage more exploring and less sitting in base forever.  There are only two types of dinosaurs at the moment.  Dinosaurs have a set spawn rate of 1 every x seconds, but I should change it to spawn them in waves.  The way the buildings are spawned and moved is not very fluid.  I would like to make them have a build time and not be able to stack on one another.

Game Focus: Jurassic Survival

Jurassic Survival is a real time survival game.  Players are given an initial amount of resources and must collect additional resources to build up their defenses to survive the oncoming waves of hungry dinosaurs.  As players progress, they will unlock new buildings and face stronger dinosaurs.  The game can be played in single player mode or players can team up in a multiplayer mode and work together to survive.  There are a wide range of towers and upgrades to choose from and a unique set of dinosaurs with special abilities.  The objective of the game is to survive all rounds without losing all of your health and players can choose to play an endless survival mode in which dinosaurs spawn endlessly and grow stronger.
