I have developed and launched a few simple games onto the app store, and am interested in making a Tower Defense game. There is only one problem, I have no clue where to start. To learn how to make my previous games I read tutorials and watched some videos, but for the Tower Defense genre I can't find anything relevant. 

 

All resources and experience that you are able to share to help me create my own game are very much appreciated.

 

Thanks for everything

I have a post on my blog where I had posted a number of demo code pieces. Unfortunately, the one I want to give you is now a broken link, but here's the blog post:

The post used to be under this link:

 

http://developer.coronalabs.com/code/predictive-aiming-tower-defense

 

I will check at home to see if I still have the code.

The code can now be found in github repos:

 

Normal predictive aiming to shoot display objects with other display objects:

Physics objects being thrown around, using the same predictive aiming library as above:
