How long will you survive.
Step 1: The Games Overview
Doom let me explain the game.
The game is a basic tower defence game but instead of being played on a computer you play it in real life. It can be played with any number of players and can easily be adapted to many activities from shooting and archery to sports. Me and my friend invented it while fooling around with throwing knives, that is the version I will use to explain the game.
ZOMBIES:in our game the concept is, there is a zombie walking towards you. The zombie is able to take a certain amount of steps each turn trying to close the gap to get to you. The zombie A.K.A your target doesn't actually move its just a score to see when the zombie would reach you and you are eaten or in other words have lost the game.
The the game is played in turns, each set of throws equals a turn, we called them nights as in the passing of a night you survived. And each round the zombie can take more steps getting more and more difficult.
PLAYERS: we had seven throwing knives. So we said the zombie had to take seven steps to reach the player. To keep a zombie away from you you had to stick a knife into the target "knocking back the zombie". Keeping him at 7 steps away, A zombie can't go farther than 7 steps away, or you had to land one kill shot. This meant hitting a bullseye. We had drawn eyes as our bullseye. So basically you have to land at least as many hits equal to the amount of steps the zombie would take.
SURVIVAL: say on night 1 you said the zombie takes three steps. This would mean you must land three of your seven hits or 1 kill shot to keep home seven steps back. If you only landed 2 the zombie would now be 6 steps away from you on your next turn. The tricky part is on your next turn its night 2 and the zombie takes 4 steps so it gets more desperate. This is also what makes it tower defence.
A lot of writing for a simple concept.
