All Your Units! :D | March 27, 2012

by Joe

Feels like I haven’t posted in while and, for that, I’m sorry! I’m giving TPD2 extra attention because we have special plans for it in the near future! The sooner I get a lot of the art done, the sooner we can get the ball rolling! :D

I finished the friendly units that will appear in the game and I’m very glad to finally show all of them to you, above! Hover over a unit for more info and click on the GRID button to toggle the grid on/off! :D

Let me know what you think about the units and how they look! And, keep the suggestions and ideas coming! I greatly appreciate them! Feel free to join the brainstorming and discussion in this forum thread! :D

Enjoy Flash Showcase 01 – “The Pocalypse Defense 2 Units, Part 2”!

The Pocalypse will continue soon! Thank you for bearing with me!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook, Twitter and RSS!

Check out Green Pixel’s first iOS game: BlockHopper! http://blockhopper.greenpixel.ca/ Thank you for your support and have fun running, hopping, and thinking your way to the Goal! Make your own levels, too! :D The FREE Lite version is also out! Get it here!

to criticise your concept; the hacker is a bit unrealistic in the backround is a giant tank and nobody uses it and the green place on the right top is a bit emty but all in all i cant wait for the day you will relese it

This looks amazing. I really hope you put boss fights into this one. Cross, Dominik, and/or Andrius would all make really good boss fights.

@roger chances are the tank isn’t being used because they probably don’t have the fuel or ammo for it.
i think the yellow building in the bottom left looks like unused space on here but, i’m probably just being ocd or something though. i don’t think it would be useful for the snipers but in my opinion the hackers and salvagers would probably use it as a safe area to work from. though you probably have enough grid space currently heh.

Maybe you can have something like an special abilities section where you can activate the tank for an artillery barrage or Joe Madness ability.

mouseman- Scrapinator? are you doc. Doofinshmerg?

Joe- Awesome new units, especially the hacker and drones! I wonder how they managed to crack the security measures against hackers in machines…?

very nice. i can only assume that a story will be able to explain how the colony got their hands on such advanced machinery correct?
… heh, all your units are belong to us… i couldnt resist :P

If this will be free you should submit it to Armorgames. Every new game gets on the frontpage and the really popular ones stay there for quite a long time in the side bar. 100000+ people play the games on average and you can also promote the comic. Imagine if only 1 out of 100 check it out, you would still get a thousand extra viewers. Just a tip.

Gotta say, this all looks pretty snazzy. I can’t say that I’m too fond of the idea of drones being involved in defending the colony though. If machines were to attack it, then wouldn’t they be able to take over those drones…?

Very nice, I must say the spaces on top of the buildings add a fantastic new layer of strategy to the Tower Defense idea.

Will we be allowed only 1 of the Hero Units, or can we use several?
*really wants to set something up where the enemies get funneled through Joe and Jess with Bernie and Doc covering them*

The drones would be running on a seperate network that doc created to be unhackable, obvioulsy

For the abilities it would be fun if you had easter eggs not related to Pocalypse like a Skyrim joke or something.

My only problem with the hacker (Other than the silly premise) is that it’s a very conditional weapon. It ONLY works on machine scouts. A single unit type. In that space you could have put a unit equally capable of battling machines but can also attack zombies and plant monsters etc.

And where’s the fun in that? Making units that can hit everything and do plenty of damage? I’m pretty sure Joe stated that having units that you can just place everywhere and win every level easily is the kind of scenario he wanted to avoid.

@Willy That’s not what I am talking about at all. What I was saying is that the hacker can only physically attack machine scout units. Making it completely useless in any other situation. I wasn’t talking about some Deus ex Machina unit that can juggle chainsaws while simultaneously preventing any more cliffhangers, I am just talking about using a unit such as the soldier. When upgraded it will be just as effective against machines(Perhaps less) but can actually attack the other unit types as opposed to the hackers machine only attack (which going by the description only effects one particular unit in the machine army, may just be me looking too far into it) It just seems like a rock paper scissors style unit which seem to plague many strategy games. I have no quarrels with the rest of the units, the Hoplite looks kick ass.

I must admit, this is the longest hiatus void of true-scenes (meaning non-fillers) since the comics began. It was bound to happen eventually…
