    Review emerges!

    Played your map and I must say it's quite an addicting game, playing it till now. The terrain looks fine but still you could add something more in it. Seeing that most objects can be interacted, you could try making some heavy objects that when destroyed causes some disadvantages such as destroying a pillar causes it to fall and dealing damage to those around it. It adds up some tactics in it, in my own opinion. You do not simply destroy objects for items and such but to destroy your enemies as well. Well, seeing that you have some exploding objects of some sort, you could add more. There could be some sort of variations in tile and ground height as well.

    You should also stop the original warcraft 3 music in the initialization for it overlaps or overrides with your custom music (cool music by the way, It's like the music from the Saw movie). The giant brood in the map has a big scaling size as well which causes it to overlap with the cage, I guess you should either make the cages bigger or make the unit smaller.

    Overall, this is a fun map but I really think that it can still be improved with some cool features instead of simply killing and there you go, it's quite common nowadays. Adding some twists and turns would really do. Fix those I pointed as well. Rated 3/5 and Approved.

    Awesome.

    > You should also stop the original warcraft 3 music...
    In fact I did that. That's weird. Maybe that's the same reason Matija was talking about his map (Shinobi Showdown). Gonna check on it again.

    Will update more stuff in future. So stay tuned. :)

    PS: Saw theme song ftw.

    Edit: Made a minor edit to the map. Fixed the problem with maps destructible being undestroyed. Added suggested players. Nothing much worth retrying though. More updates will come later I suppose.

    Thanks.


    Map is updated a little. The music seems pretty much alright to me without any changes. Is it just me or...? Anyone else has this problem with music being played together with the Saw theme?

    Remove the stacking damage on the tentacles
    Remove a bug that causes destrucible dummies to appear when creep level is increased

    Yeah. It's pretty odd. It's fine to me too.
    Seems like it happens on random.
