Minimal Tower Defense is a strategy game where you try to defeat waves of dangerous monsters before they reach your tower. Of course, its less of a tower and more of a blueish square on the right side of the screen, but the idea stands.

Monsters appear on the only colorful square on the far left edge of the map, sprint towards the only colorful square on the far right edge of the map. Each time a monster reaches your tower, you lose one life. Lose all of your lives and the game ends.

You start out with a small treasury of gold, and each time you defeat a creep you receive a bit more gold to aid in your valiant defense of the lame blue squa... I mean... your tower. You also receive a few more points to your score when you defeat a creep. While gold can be redeemed for more powerful towers, score can only be redeemed as social capital among fellow MTD players, and thus could be fairly described as both invaluable and worthless.

Good game, starts to get difficult around level 30, the highest I went was level 54 using a single gatling tower and repeated upgrades.

Some bugs:

- needs to be fullscreened for UI to look right

- Some buttons get "stuck" and you need to puase / unpause the game.


I'm kind of new to this, so there's a lot of problems.

I'll be doing a big redesign and rewrite on some things to make it playable on a smaller display.
