+2 Kahl Quoting Mindy:
I don't know what we're supposed to do. We're stuck in the first area. (Sand region) We've gone around the border several times. Climbed all the mountains. Found all the chests. Everything is dead. Even found the secret NPC in the cave. What now?

+7 Adultcreep This map started off great but it quickly went downhill. The first level was fun to explore and involved some interesting combat. The combat quickly grew tiresome as you swing your sword, dying endlessly with no consequences.. trying to kill 'bosses' that have outrageous health pools. Blindness and nausea effects were used heavily and made the gameplay frustrating while adding little overall. The map designer seemed to have a vision and the experience to pull it off but fell short making it actually fun to play. Despite all this, the map was a unique and enjoyable experience with innovating use of the game's default music. Love, Adultcreep.

+4 Delta Honestly, felt like the mobs need balancing. Other than that, it's okay.

+3 xDiversity Really cool map - played with a couple friends and everything was just really well made and thought through. The soundtracks fitted perfectly with every boss fight and adventure scene, just a generally good experience. I feel as if the storyline could have been somewhat worked on as half the time we weren't 100% sure what was going on. That's my only real criticism!
