Computational Intelligence And Tower Defence Games


The aim of this paper is to introduce the use of Tower Defence (TD) games in Computational Intelligence (CI) research. We show how TD games can provide an important test-bed for the often under-represented casual games research area. Additionally, the use of CI in the TD games has the potential to create a more interesting, interactive and ongoing game experience for casual gamers. We present a definition of the current state and development of TD games, and include a classification of TD game components. We then describe some potential ways CI can be used to augment the TD experience. Finally, a prototype TD game based on experience-driven procedural content generation is presented.
