Map Review by SlySlasher

Originality: 3 / 4
I would consider this map to be rather original. There are some parts of the adventure maps that really stood out, and were fresh and bringing new, ingenuitive ideas. I believe that some of the ideas would revolutionize the adventure genre itself, enhancing and enriching the overall experience. Having said that, it was not consistent throughout the course of the map, and every level does not necessarily bring something new to the table, and a tad repetitive.

Architectural Detail/Effort: 3.5 / 4
There is no doubt that a massive amount of effort was put in into creating this custom map. Every single aspect of architecture was done right, from the towns itself, to the detailed and exuberant castle, it was breathtaking, and was simply a masterpiece. Even the lighting was done right, the redstone torches did give a ambient feel to the castle, setting the mood perfectly. However, if i were to be really nit-picky, i would say that some levels themselves looked a tad bland.

Gameplay: 3 / 4
Firstly, this has been a LONG time since i have seen parkour done right. This adds a element of danger and urgency when strategizing your jumps. It stays true to the Castlevania franchise, and does not deviate from it too much. Okay, now for the main complaint. Creepers. As this is a combat and adventure based map, there are bound to be creepers. This map forces one to cheat. You see, when creepers explode, some of the blocks that they explode does not get dropped in the form of entities. When one is trying to climb a stair, and the creeper wrecks it, it sometimes forces the user to spawn themselves the necessary items to fix the damage done. Also, i often get blown up and i would fall into a different level. This is a lingering problem, that has to be fixed, in my opinion. I would suggest making a obsidian coating under the flooring and below platforms. This may not seem like a big deal, but it does make the gameplay much smoother and fluent.

Progression: 3 / 4
The custom map progressed fluently and with coherently. All the levels were well sorted out, and it is linear progression done right. Although there are some hiccups and problems due to what i have mentioned above. Those do not happen too frequently, and has a checkpoint system to it. I would suggest re-enforcing the checkpoint with obsidian, as creepers may tend to blow a checkpoint or two up.

Storyline: 2 / 4
In any adventure-style map, a storyline is the prominent factor that motivates the player along with the adventure map. Don't get me wrong, the storyline was well written and decently executed, however, it is not structured well. Any great adventure-themed map that you know of, has an intriguing storyline. It keeps you wanting to know more about the story, and slowly you can put two and two together, and the final story seems like a masterpiece, What was lacking in the storyline was mystery. Everything was told to the reader, and does not motivate the reader to progress with the map, to find out more about the storyline. Sometimes, it is good to cliff-hang in a particular note, to enrich the storyline even further.

Estimated Playtime: 1 hour(s)
Total score: 14.5 / 20
