  1. 2.0.4 THANK YOU for bringing back the "classic" background graphics. It may be a bit "cartoonish" but now I can clearly see the action on the field again.

    Didn't the Tower selection boxes in the bottom right corner used to roll off-screen after a few seconds?

  2. The new 'survival' mode isn't very satisfying. Here's a suggestion...

    When a game ends, show us our final score and the highest score we have achieved in survival mode - so we can see whether we have achieved something.

    Generally, you should also let us see the map when the game ends so we can consider our mistakes.

    Excellent! I've had this issue and thought it was an issue with my phone specifically, tried posting other places asking about it since I'd noticed the same sort of stuttering within some other games (mainly Game Dev Story). Didn't notice anyone mentioning this issue for Robodefense though. Happy to hear you've likely got this solved.

  7. Seriously I demand this:

    Please add a checkbox for the option to:
    "tap teleport tower to rearm immediately" (instead of displaying the retarded sell-rearm menu!)
    or a similar toggle on the game screen, much like the zoom slider,

    unless you have some valid excuses like running into technical difficulties. Hate losing (perfect) to game glitch. Great game otherwise.

  12. Need a better way to rearm teleport towers. Also is survival suppose to end after 100 stages? Why wouldn't it keep going?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Auto rearm would be even better. Until you've seen 20 carriers rain down on you you will wonder why we need it.

  16. i want an answer as to why i can't move it to the sd card.... i'll keep posting until i get a f'ing answer

  17. Auto rearm (with delay or not)doesn't work. Takes away something big from the game. No one will be watching their teleports after building their desired number of teleports. Currently it's possible to rearm about 3 times per second of non-fast forward time, to match or better the spawning rate of bots. But any lag in response can spoil the show. It's sick to spend 1.5 hrs per game and losing perfect run to few seconds of lag.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I hope the blog moderator bans you David, spamming will get you nowhere and wineing will get you even less

    ReplyDelete
  19. on the later levels, 3 times per second is not good enough, or even more..

    ReplyDelete
  20. This update has cut the crashes to a fraction, but it still does crash.
    I'm noticing that it only crashes when units die, if that helps

    ReplyDelete
  21. What's better quality graphics?

    With or without 16-bit background on?

  22. @mark so can u move to sd card? i get there's not enough space error, even though there is.

    rd is acting like its an app that has not been updated to allow sd card saving, even though it says on one of the releases that it was added.

    so, why can't i save it to the sd card if it's supposed to be enabled?

    ReplyDelete
  23. @David,

    I just moved my robo defense to the SD card - no problems. Although I am on a droid x.

    Do you have enough free space to put it on the sd card? how full is your sd card? do you have a lot of pictures on it? whats the error you get?

    ReplyDelete
  24. on htc aria cm7 rc2. have 3+ GB free on sd card.

    error:

    box pops up with a triangle exclamation point sign that says Move application
    Failed to move application. There is not enough storage left.

    this is the same error i get when i try to move an app that hasn't been updated to allow for sd card storage.

    but robo d (have 2.0.4 version) has been updated, so i do not understand.

    ???

  25. I wanna buy the game but I cant find it on market. Can someone please show mw how? Ive tried buying at different websites but the link is broken. Im currently using samsung galaxy sgh t959

  26. Whether it's lvl 0 or 1000, the units still spawn at the same rate of 1~4 per second. This figure may double if a huge chain of units spawn and you're unable to kill majority of them before they reach your teleports a 2nd time (they're coming with those reaching the teleports for the first time). It's a rather regular firepower problem. Quite a bad excuse to ask for auto rearm. The occasional lag problem requires more attention to fix the rearms.

  27. @David

    Did you try removing robo defense totally and reinstall?

    ReplyDelete
  28. As far as the teleport towers go. Why not just upgrade you gun, missle, anti-air and slow towers so you do not have to rely soo much on the teleport towers so much?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Bug report:

    You have two overflows I have found:
    (1) Points overflow at the 32bit signed max (approx 2 billion)
    (2) You have some sort of overflow in upgrade costs (which is how I noted #1). While a very neat way of "infinite" upgrades, I suspect it is not intentional. Someplace in the 80's or 90's (upgrade level) I noticed that things started costing negative points to upgrade... then revert to a positive number and repeat. I've noted that as long as I do not exceed 2 billion points, I can thus continuously upgrade items/rewards by balancing my negative costs with my positive costs so as not to exceed total reward points of 2 billion.

    So far, I am at level 500-900 for most of my rewards/upgrades. I am guessing I can keep pushing them all higher until I hit the overflow for the level #s... but really don't see the point. Level 260 is a breeze with my current upgrade levels... as is "Survival Mode"

    So, just figured I'd let you know this little glitch.

  31. Since the new update has come out, I am losing 3 out of 4 games when I do a "Save and Exit" during a game. I try to come back to it later and it says there is an error loading the file.

    Sucks. A lot of hard work getting through a level only to lose it. Any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've run into a similar problem... in my case it is because my health is at a level not supported.

  33. what about making the Survival Mode more interesting, having about 10 waves from each level, i think this would be more fun, because using survival mode gives you a MINOR amount of reward points, it is kindoff pointless.
    adding a new map would be cool, so is adding some new units (i think adding units should be easy, just copy the code from one unit, paste it to another, change the values) and if you do add some new units, think about making each level to 110-120 waves, so these new units can spawn, i think most of us (players) will agree on this one...

  35. Please add kill counters to every tower so that we can tell how effective certain towers are in certain spots. This has been my only complaint with this game since I started playing it 5 months ago.

  36. Hi. I'd like to start over. How do I clear all my awards and upgrades?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Has anyone tried playing survival mode without many points (i.e. the experience of a new user)? It is impossible?

    The first few enemy units spawned have very little life and die quickly, but that is it. You can't kill anything after that, so you never get any more points and never get to build anything.

    This 'survival mode' needs to be tuned to take into account the player's strength.

  38. The 2.0.6 update is unplayable on my HTC Hero

  39. What happened to v2.05? Just a minor screw up with numbers, or something bigger?

  40. Stole my wife's phone this morning for a few minutes to get in some RD quality time and found out the new 2.x updates. Awesome update. Thanks a lot.

  42. Plz fix the damn crashes for my hero
    Im tried of it crashing half way thru the first wave with everything off

  43. Thanks for the "classic background" option. So I got so many points that I made the game too easy. Where's the reset to default so that I lose more than I win? And another thing. I paid for a license, so how do I get the other backgrounds and different play versions? Thanks in advance for a reply.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Not sure if this is a recent-update issue or not, but performance is pretty horrible on my Xoom. Average draw time of 60+ms.

    Plays fine on my Droid2. Issues with the higher-resolution display maybe?

    ReplyDelete
  45. No response when tapping 'rearm' in sub-menu (after tapping tower)some time after 2.04. Happens about 1 out of 4 times, best graphics or not. This shyt is more obvious under best graphics, when everything runs slower, and you'll know it has nothing to do with a sudden slowdown or a lousy finger. Sometimes have to hit 3 times to send the blardy rearm command. Seems to happen when another teleport is being tripped, or more than 1 air unit is hovering above the teleport that I'm trying to re-arm. Also looks like the game is trying to process its beautiful graphics and ignoring my vital command.
    Other submenus (upgrade to towers) are affected too.
    And I'm not going to click that upgrade with negative cost. Totally retarded might as well pay for a trainer from the start.

  47. Hey Folks...love the game. So addictive! Quick question/problem...
    I got a new Motorola Droid Razr Maxx so I moved the game file from the old phone to the new. I played the game for about 3 weeks without any problems until last night.
    When I finished the game and went to check my points it said I had zero. I had over 3 million and suddenly they were gone as were all my achievements. It's like the game just reset itself. The phone was not powered off reset or connected to anything...it was in my hand the whole time.
    Any suggestions?
