  abstract =     "In this paper, we describe the results of implementing
                 Genetic Programming (GP) using two different Artificial
                 Neural Networks (ANN) topologies in a customised Tower
                 Defence (TD) games. The ANNs used are (1) Feed-forward
                 Neural Network (FFNN) and (2) Elman-Recurrent Neural
                 Network (ERNN). TD game is one of the strategy game
                 genres. Players are required to build towers in order
                 to prevent the creeps from reaching their bases. Lives
                 will be deducted if any creeps manage to reach the
                 base. In this research, a map will be designed. The AI
                 method used will self-synthesise and analyse the level
                 of difficulty of the designed map. The GP acts as a
                 tuner of the weights in ANNs. The ANNs will act as
                 players to block the creeps from reaching the base. The
                 map will then be evaluated by the ANNs in the testing
                 phase. Our findings showed that GP works well with ERNN
                 compared to GP with FFNN.",
