    Does anybody remember WTD? (Last version was 0.5)

    http://ndswtd.wordpress.com/

    The author discontinued development, but released the full source code.
    It would be great it someone picked it up.

    I believe one thing everyone was waiting for was multiplayer support (which never arised)
    but still an awesome homebrew.

    Try it if you haven't, and maybe someone can revive it.

    Great game, probably one of my favorite DS homebrew games ever. Really amazing and addicting game, nice style.

    I wish I could get it to run on my R4... [​IMG]
    Refuses to load on both official firmware and YSMenu.

    Make sure you patch it with DLDI (not necessary if your firmware does that automatically for you, probably that's the case)
    Else it should work, I played it for ages with my R4.

    Hmm... works with official firmware now (I think it was because it wasn't on the root of the card before).
    But still doesn't work in YSMenu, it just loads half way then white screens.
    Seems there's an issue with DSTT and some homebrew loading.

    If I remember correctly, you aren't able to build on the top part of some maps due to a..bug? or limitation? (or bad coding?)

    Also, slightly related, I just finished Save the Snowman. Awesome map.

    I think if the project gets picked up, there could be a strong community behind it (in terms of map making, etc)

    I'm sure a lot of people like it...

    But there's a difference between liking a game and picking up the coding of said game.

    Map editor being available =/= you asking:

    You asked for someone to continue developing the game...
    That's a far cry from using a map editor to move sprites around and create maps.

    Personally i would just really like to see some well made maps released.
    40 or 50 good maps could really breathe some life into this HB Game.

    Damn, I love this game. It is the only good pure Tower Defense game on the DS (yes, ninjatown was good, but it was different, and no- don't ever mention Desktop Tower Defense DS again!) and it needs to be picked up.
