    a spark to start a fire is necessary. But mainly you need dry kindling.

  • My vote goes to Tankinator.  Both games work well, but the visual impact, and continuous play and variety of weapons swing it.  Well done both teams.

  • Both games were awesome! But the game made by the first group (Zock77, Cobra, Flostian) had even more awesome effects which made it look like more like a real defense game. The feature that I liked was that the towers turned their direction towards the incoming enemy. I wish I could vote for you both but since I have only one vote I vote for the zock77 group.

  • I am also very curious to know how you guys managed to create icons moving around while the background of the image can be seen through. Do you know what I mean? like how you can make the sides of a square-shaped image see-through such that the background can bee seen?

  • Great. Actually I also found another way. I used photoshop. I delete the background and then save the image as .png this is amazing how computer gets tricked into not showing the background. but normal photo viewers show the background as white!

  • Nice Ed! :D

    Now it is 4:0 for Tankinator! Congratulation Zock. :D

    It looks like your team did a good job.

  • I updated the score in the blog post: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/smallbasic/archive/2012/12/11/small-basic-teamchallenge-tower-defense-game-vote-to-see-who-wins.aspx

    I really liked the menus in the Tank Rampage game.

  • Timo, I sent the newest version of Tank Rampage to your e-mail. Before you upload it to Technet, could you get rid of the [g] on one of the lines between 429 and 444? It's just a minor bug fix and I'd really rather not upload the whole thing again.

    Thanks!

  • Sorry about my post appearing more than once. I think it detected my click more than once so it sent back my post 3 times. But I've deleted those excess posts. They're gone now.

    Zock, any progress or idea of when you might be done? No pressure. =^)

  • Sorry. I have been learning JavaScript so I haven't done much on it. But one question to you when you said:

    "- Sometimes I want my turrets to aim at different tanks. It would be nice to click a turret to change the tank it's firing on. That could be fun to go around clicking turrets so that you get the right combination. It would add a new level of interaction to the game."

    Do you mean being able to select which one to shoot at if they are inside the turret range? or inside and out.
