Planet Defense 1

Author Comments

In this game you need to protect helpless Earth from giant asteroids and devastating comets using automatic turrets. The gameplay of this game is simple. You've got to purchase turrets and drop them on the orbit, aiming at the advancing space bodies. If you destroy an asteroid or comet then you earn some money to buy more powerful defensive weapons. If Earth is destroyed then your game is over.

Controls: Mouse Use cursor keys for moving on map. 1-5 keys to quick place defence ships (don't work in fullscreen mode)

Says its 100 percent loaded on the NG Player but wont play :( 3 stars because I dont want to punish the creators for the error but would like to play it

Very Fun and exciting. Unique.

The most unique version of tower defense I have ever played. You have a gift.

dumb defenders

very good game
just one flaw that annoyed me

once you have successfully defended a few comets your space around earth is littered with space ships that got pushed away from their initial intended position.
and as soon as your planet is nicely wrapped with defenses and asteroids come in swarming in equally huge groups things get frantic and unorganized.
the biggest problem about this is that your ships don't ever prioritize their objectives, they aim at whatever they get in their sight.
i think ships with weapons should at first target the object in range that intercepts with the earth (if there's many of those - target the biggest: a comet for example) (if it doesn't there is no need to attack it yet)
then they should attack objects that are flying towards themselves (for their own protection)
then attack objects flying at other ships
and last attack asteroids flying away or passing

i've often had ships attacking little splinters and completely ignoring the huge comet passing behind their back (which was the reason why i sent them there in the first place)

also the healing ships should really really first heal the ship in range with the lowest hp

if you intend to make a sequel you could actually have these features as upgrades for each class (training them)

and it would help if you could, for a little cost, call some ships back - as they often get into positions where they are in the way (ie you get some money it took you to place them back - so with a little more you can replace them)


Holy frick!!! AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I loved the game but um...THAT BIG SHIP TOOK OUT MY LITTLE SHIPS! T-T
