You can get towers of war from
http://www.kaldobsky.com/audiogames/towersofwarbeta.zip (I believe when I
posted the original link the folder was stil called tower defense, so that
might be why it's now not working).
For details on the game see
http://forum.audiogames.net/viewtopic.php?id=4327 (including a list of
keyboard short cuts).
To answer everyone's questions, this is indeed an audio stratogy game based
on a genre of mainstream stratogy games popular on pc's and Iphones and such
(look up tower defense games on wikipedia for details).
Basically, you have a 10 x10 audio grid ala time of conflict or similar.
There are land tiles (two types), which you can build on, and water tyles
which you can't. A path runs across the map (use shift E or e for
When ready ie, when you press spacebar and enter, a bunch of monsters will
start walking across the path. For every monster that makes it to the end,
you lose a life.
To fight the monsters, you can buy towers and place them on squares (press
ctrl on a square then use the tab key), which do various types of damage in
a circular area around the tower. The towers can then be upgraded to do more
damage, have a wider range, or fire more times per minute.
The catch is,you only have a limited amount of money, so need to spend
wisely, ---- for instance putting towers where they can reach multiple areas
of the path (B7 to E7 are great places on the first map for instance).
When you've placed your towers, hit spacebar to start the monster attack,
(you'll be told what sort of monsters are in the next level and their stats,
then be asked to press enter to confirm).
What your towers fire (you can hit B on each tower to see what it's doing,
but also moving around the grid will give you audio feedback), then if you
make it through, start using the gold you got from that bunch of monsters to
upgrade your towers or build more in preparation for the next wave.
As I said, check the posts, sinse lots of stuff gets added literally every
day (I've never seen a game be developed this fast), for instance most
recently for instance the appocalypse mode, which substitutes the normal 20
levels of monsters for wave after wave of zombies increasing in difficulty.
I hope this gives people a better idea of the game.
I'd deffinately recommend it, it's really quite addictive, and surprisingly
fun, not to mention more complex than it looks at first.
Beware the grue!
