A Novel Procedural Content Generation Algorithm for Tower Defense Games Conference Paper uri icon


  • The purpose of this article is to present a procedural content gen- eration algorithm for tower defense games. The algorithm was developed for an isometric tower-defense game with roguelite ele- ments. This algorithm can generate content that improves replaya- bility by generating surprising new levels according to the expected gameplay in this game genre. Each time that the player starts a new game he is faced with new generated road maps, enemies, and spawn points. Finally, we made a playtest session to evaluate several aspects of the algorithm and of the game, such as the levels and enemies’ generation, gameplay, performance, and others.
