Base Defense (An Overwatch Tower Defense)
This game is in BETA, and bugs may still be encountered, and features may change. If you have comments or concerns about balance, let me know, it's still ongoing. Changelogs posted to my Discord server.
A unique and true tower defense mode made in Overwatch, where you (and up to 2 other players; 3 total) can purchase and upgrade towers. The ultimate goal is the defend the base, if the base goes to 0 health, you lose.
Featuring over 24 different maps to strategize and play on (including their seasonal variants). This mode supports the Workshop Maps with randomized paths; not enabled by default.
This game scales based on how many players are in the game.
- 1 Player: You can place 5 towers, and earn 100% gold.
- 2 Players: You can place 4 towers, and earn 148% total gold, divided amongst both players.
- 3 Players: You can place 4 towers, and earn 164% total gold, divided evenly amongst all.
Towers are significantly more effective than players, as players deal 0 damage with most actions.
The base starts with 600 health, and recovers 20% health per wave and gains 50 health. The base starts with 200 power, which decharges by 3 per wave.
Players can expend gold to upgrade the base which upgrades the base health by 50, and grants 4 power. Every 8 waves completed will increase the effectiveness of this action, however, note that each upgrade increases the cost of future upgrades.
While the base has power it will expend 10 power to attackers inflicting 50% of the attacker's health to any attacker inside of the base. Players can expend 40 power during a wave to restore 5% health, which is useful if you have a good base defense (or high maximum power).
Players can also place traps which usually slow down attackers, or damage the attackers.
Killing creatures and completing waves award all players gold, gold is used and consumed in any process during intermission, in which is the only phase you can interact with a tower. Towers can be upgraded or naturally upgrade as they kill foes. Towers can also be nudged (based on looking direction, looking up will move them further), and towers can be destroyed which refunds 1/5 of the base price (increasing per level).
Towers gain 10% damage per level up to 5000%, at which they begin to scale externally which is identified with "true damage multiplier".
Do Note: Player characters do not deal damage (minus Wrecking Ball), and all heroes now have some form of extra utility. You are encouraged and intended to build towers in effective locations that can defeat all of the foes before they destroy your base.
You will encounter boss waves on 10, 20, 30, and 50. After level 50, the waves are randomly generated and scale exponentially, there is not a current way to win, just try to defeat as many waves as you please.
Good luck, and have fun!
