Game idea: Life Path, a reverse tower defense game

Your thoughts? An iPad/ iPhone app called Life Path which would be a reverse tower defense game: instead of shooting the people walking by, you need to boost them by building schools, libraries, job centers, sports center, amusement parlor, social help etc. Just drag one of the predefined house types on the randomized map. E.g. a school would "shoot"/ emit Education onto bypassing people.

Interesting theme. TD mechanics draw me more than the theme, but coming up with a NEW theme for TD is pretty rare, so kodus! You should build it

I fully agree, the TD mechanics should be original and new as well or else it won't be great. Just a theme won't suffice. I had a couple of (hopefully new-ish) TD ideas, but didn't finish the brainstorming

Thanks!
