0 Gehad Is there, by any chance the map's name is based on the movie "The Way Back"?

Terrible map, creator made it in about 30 seconds. 0/10 rating from me, way too easy, spawns sqrewed up, and nothing at the top of the tube to tell you what was going on. Not to mention that this map is just simply a spinoff of other maps that are way better than this.

He probably took lway longer then that but from the comments, yeah it seems to be really easy

+2 WildRyce Good Map! could use some harder parts of the map like challenges or less items, but well made! Smart use of the different ways to get up. Not too long and not too short either, depending on the way you make your way out. Maybe add some more ways out and make it a little bit more challenging.

+2 GrandAmdrThrawn I got to the top in about five minutes using the water. Good idea, but I guess I think a little too much outside the box. :)

+4 alex7ktrc Map was okay, wasn't too hard but definitely an interesting idea. I ended up just filling some of the lava around the tree with dirt, made dirt tools and carved up into a cave system. Kept going till I got to the surface. My favorite part was finding the tube and jumping to my death in the end lol.

+1 macay777 Hey I really liked this map, it makes you use your brain! I didn't really need food though because you aren't moving around too much so the food bar doesn't really go down, but anyway I liked it (:

Thanks, Paidam
