Star Tower Defense


Star Tower Defense (Star TD) is an on your own TD. Unlike many other TD's, all the players are not teamed against a computer player. Instead, each player has to protect his own line.

As you can see in the mapshot, the map is arranged in a star-like shape. The enemy units spawn in the middle of the map, and you must kill them before they reach the outside of your star's prong, using towers. Each time an enemy unit reaches the end of the prong, your king in the middle of the star loses 500 HP. If that king dies, you lose.

In the bottom corner of the map, there is a store where you can choose to buy either Castle Age, Imperial Age, +3, +15, +45, or +100 tower AP, a trade cart, or a relic, using gold.

Also, there is an offensive store, where you can buy super units to go down a player of your choice's star prong. You can also buy minus 40 tower ap on a player you choose.

Lastly, in Star TD, the host can choose the difficulty level. He can choose these 3 difficulties: Moderate, which give each player 2 free relics, providing much more usage of the offensive store, since you get more gold. Hard, which gives each player no bonuses or penalties. Or Extreme difficulty, which gives each player 8 less population.

Star TD is not long like other TDs, and is not meant to be. Because of this, Star TD provides very fast gameplay, lasting only about 1 hour, and I can almost guarantee you that you won't get bored. If you are killing all of the enemy units that come to you easily, you can use the offensive store. Multiple players can't win, either, unless they're on a team. The last level is a constant spawn of 75 HP, 1000/1000 armor Light Cavalry.

Good luck.

Trigon Cool map:
Found a bug. (For player 1)on lan games when you buy the imperial upgrade only the building you build after that has been research are upgraded to the imperial age. The ones that are already built stay in the dark age where is single player all buildings get upgraded.

All in all a good map

I think you mean that towers don't upgrade if you have already bought +AP for them?

If so, that is an AoC bug, not a problem with the scenario.

And by the way, you have to buy castle age before imperial age.
Trigon You don't need to buy castle age upgrade before you buy imperial age. You can buy imperial age right off the bat.


(lan game) I start building a tower(at this stage i am in the first age) when i have completed a tower i go to the imperial age(Note: i dont need to go to the castle age, this could be a bug) when i enter the imperial age all the tower that i have built do NOT get upgraded to the imperial age.

NOTE: I tried playing in single player and it works find (no bug).

This could be a game bug but i though i would just let you know.

Well that's the thing. It doesn't work right unless you get castle age first. I mean to implement that you are required to get castle age before Imperial age, but apparently I didn't. It's too late to update it now, though. You can fix it yourself if you want. People have already released a rigged version of Star TD named -Star TD v126-, so all future versions of Star TD will be thought of as rigged.
Sempie wow, I searched so long for a TD in age of empires, ant this one is really great xD

the only thing i missed is a TD AI

if someone could make this ..... =]

sorry for my bad english, iam german

Map Design5.0
Playability: 5
Star TD is a very unique and enjoyable Tower Defense. The 7 player TDis an all on al game in which the players have to survive the Longest. It is very fun trying to build towers quckley and killing the people who walk allon the path.

Balance: 5
The game gets harder as it goes along. The first level has no HP change but then the Hp of the units get higher and higher. The last level is a 75 HP 1000 Armour Light Calvary which is very hard to kill.

Creativity: 5
This is a very creative TD. The things you buy in the Shop are different to those in the other TDs and this TD also uses the units with 1000 armour. you can also use your people to attack the other player's towers too.

Map Design: 5
The Map is designed in the shape of a Star (hence the name) surrounded by Water. There are small islands were the resource areas and shops are. Because the map is a TD there is no need for cliffs and Elevation so I have taken no points off the score for this.

Story/Instructions: 5
Being a multiplayer scenario, a Tower Defence doesn't need a story so no points are taken off for that. The Instructions however are fantastic. They tell you extactly what to do and give alot of helpful Hints about the scenario. The Shop, the Levels, The Resources, etc.

Additional Comments:
One of the Best TDs I have played.

Thanks for the review Possidon!

If only I could find UobTex_BT, he did the basic concept & map design and then I talked to him and we ended up getting it into beta, then it went on hiatus and later I finished. He would be thrilled with the 5.0!
