Mormon Tower Defense - Gospel App & Game Contest

Postby Leisure321 » Wed Jun 25, 2014 11:19 pm

Hi,

So I got this idea from the ideas page, it's a tower defense game based on 1 Nephi 8.
I need more ideas for unique aspects to make this game more mormon-y. Does anyone have any towers or features in mind?
(This only works well with Google Chrome right now)

Here's the actual game: http://cdelphinus.com/test/mormontowerdefense.html
Here's a trailer for it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7LZqvcmqlo

missionaries long range shot that only occasionally works.
fellowship another shooter. Works twice as well on targets hit by missionaries also with an short time period.
prayer shooting tower can affect multiple individuals in a single shot but short range
church attendance narrow circle area affect temporarily shields from other negative effects
hymns wider area affect only reaches some.
temple attendance area affect temporarily shields from other effects. Gets slowly stronger with each use that results in a save.

Uchtdorf is proportionately to strong under the current design.

I would also think of something other than the wrecking ball. Miley Cyrus isn't really modest so I don't think it is the best thing in a gospel-related app.

Perhaps to give players more power/points, have them answer a scripture chase reference, identify a prophet, apostle, temple, other.

Very interesting!

Here are a few thoughts from the perspective of the Contest's sponsors (the Church and LDSTech), its creators, and its judges:
- while we understand your point about the wrecking ball image, it's just not an appropriate image for this contest. Plus it inadvertently promotes Ms Cyrus (which is not a good thing). And there are probably intellectual property issues with using it.
- floating, spark-emitting heads of Church leaders seem a bit ... irreverent?
- we don't want to crush your creativity, but maybe there are some other ways of covering those concepts if this is to be entered into the Contest.

We've added a new FAQ item that provides some guidance. See https://tech.lds.org/wiki/ContestFAQ.

This would also work really well modeled off of the war chapters of the Book of Mormon! Captain Moroni defending their cities against the Lamanites and erecting towers of defense and digging ditches round about... etc
