I'll be rolling out a new "Power Up" for BTGTD for the next hour or so.

There is a chance I'll break things while i do it. I'll try my best not to, but I can't guarantee anything :)

So if games stop working... that is why. If I break anything, i'll fix it asap :)

Ok, the new power up is up. I have tested it a few times and it appears to be working.

So, what is it?

I have no clue what to call it... But for now I called it "Creep Freeze".

The powerup costs 5 power up points to use (this can change depending on what you all think). Using the power up will cause all creeps on the screen to stop moving for 10 seconds.

While the creeps are frozen in place :
- your towers will continue to shoot and kill the creeps
- you can build or sell towers
- you can use any other powerups
- you can send waves early (which means when they become unfrozen you'll have a ton of creeps spawning).

This powerup is quite powerful if used correctly. I'll leave it to you to figure that out :)

Please let me know your thoughts on the new powerup. (and any bugs or issues you find)

Thanks :)

Ok, the replays now shoudl work for all of the old replays.... and all of the replays from now on... but there may be a few replays for games currently running that won't work.

The problem is because some tournaments that were running while the powerup was added. So, when you watch those repplays it tried to display the powerup icon (which didn't exist when the tournament started) so it fails to load.

So, anyways, it'll all be back to normal after those tournaments end. And most of the scores in the currently running tournaments should work... just a few won't.

A small tweak feature request -

If you freeze a creep next to a teleport - it could still get teleported and the teleport timer should fill up again

why is there no possibility to make the powerup stronger with levelpoints? you could make it 1 second longer for every two level points you spent
