Crystal Defense - Full 3D iPad Tower Defense Game


I developed this game ~1 year ago, but it's just been sitting on my shelf and I'd like to eventually do something with it.

The game is technically complete, but could use a lot of polish/additional content.

All programming and art is done by myself - there is currently no sound.

  • Completely OpenGL ES 2.0 compatible
  • Dynamic shadows
  • Normal mapped terrain
  • Particles and ribbon trail effects
  • Per pixel lighting
  • 3D animated models
  • Near-optimal real time pathfinding
  • 50 waves of creeps
  • 102 towers
  • Possibility for future maps

I may release/share source code for Crystal Defense depending on what kind of interest the game picks up.

2D/3D artists that are interested in a collaboration to redo/create assets let me know!

At the moment I have zero sound.. no music, no sfx, but all of the code for playing/handling sounds is implemented so any Musicians that are interested in a collaboration let me know!

Any questions/comments or if you might be interested in this project please post here or PM me.
