    Hello CubeCrafters,

    I'm happy to announce the release of a brand new game, Tower Defence! It's been a long awaited game and it's finally here! Thanks to @toropov !! This game has finally been ported over from The Chunk and my apologies for the delay, we've just moved DataCentres and the 1.9 update broke a few things which have now been solved.

    TowerDefence is a fast-paced tower defence game in Minecraft, similar to Bloons Tower Defence.

    How to play

    • You will be matched up against another team. Your goal is to prevent your own castle from falling while trying to breach the other team's castle.
    • Teams are responsible for creating the mob waves. The mob summoner menu allows you to launch mobs. You will get zombies by default, other mobs must be unlocked by earning experience.
    • Experience is earned by sending waves of mobs.
    • The menu allows shift-left-clicking to buy the maximum amount of mobs of a kind and shift-right-clicking will remove all mobs of the selected kind.

    Towers
    • Towers are the main mechanic of the game. You must build towers to deal damage to mobs.
    • There are several kinds of towers available by default and more are available in the shop.
    • Right-clicking a tower will bring up a menu on its statistics, an option to upgrade it, and if applicable, an option to sell the tower and get a percentage of the cost returned.
    • You can also quickly upgrade a tower by sneaking and right-clicking the tower.

    The 3 x 3 Towers
    [​IMG]
    Artillery Tower - Archery Tower - Ice Tower - Mage Tower - Poison Tower - Sorcerer Tower - Zeus Tower

    The Artillery Tower shoots explosive shots and has a good Area of Effect. The Archery Tower is a cheap single shot tower that shoots arrows. The Ice Tower slows down nearby mobs. The Mage Tower gives a prolonged burning attack. The Poison Tower gives a prolonged poison effect. The Sorcerer Tower spawns animals which attack animals and help you fight. And finally the Zeus Tower give powerful single shots.

    Necromancer Tower
    - Turret Tower

    The Necromancer Tower spawns an Iron Golem which helps kill mobs whilst the Turret Tower shoots lots of fire arrows!

    Maps
    There are 10 maps in total! Here's a few:

    Pandoras Falls
    If am 'fall'ing, it's in love with this map

    Forest Grove

    Take 'root' and stand your ground... do not 'leaf'. 'Wood'nt you like an epic fight

    Candy

    Looks like a piece of 'cake'

    Valley

    The first map ever made for TD! A classic

    Hillside

    These puns have gone down 'hill' fast

    Join us and let the battle begin!

    Just want to assure you all that this gamemode is extremely enjoyable. It's innovative, unique, addictive and strategic, and is one of the best pieces of content on the server yet :)
    It's a little complicated at first, and unaware team mates will be an issue initially, but after a little bit of practice you'll be dominating the opposition ;)

    I think that Zombie Pigmen should have their price returned back to 80 p/e (per entity), that'll make it so that the game has much better gameplay. But nice job changing the amount of castle health removed in Armageddon (70% decrease to 80% decrease), this means that games will finish quicker and having a game tutorial to help the new players, this was a real issue on the chunk.

    The only problem is, @devs n whatnot, that the players dont KNOW that there is a tutorial. aka spam their chat a little bit to tell em to do the tutorial if it is their first time.

    And a lot of TD suggestions will be out soon so be on the lookout
