ZOMBINATION: Attack of the Brainless [AotB]

Map Description



[Presentation]

A hero survival and item crafting map. Player heros must survive against the undead hoard of zombies. Choose one of eight professions for your survivor: the SWAT, Chemist, Engineer, Mafia, Priest, Miner, Doctor, or Electrician, and work together or alone to survive until evac. Map is best played with sound on and shadows off. Map is unplayable on Mac OS. Tips/Recipes/Credits in F9.


[In-Depth]

At the height of a pandemic, a doctor attempts a unauthorized procedure to cure the patient, which results in a terrible biomedical accident at the laboratory. While the town attempts to contain them mutagen's outbreak, ultimately it is up to each survivor to determine their individual fate. As a survivor, you must work together with fellow survivors, or alone, to survive the pandemic until a helicopter arrives for evacuation.


Survivors have a array of options to combat the viruses spread. Base hero attack, powerful abilities, and unique items can be used to deal overwhelming firepower to massacre undead hoards. Survivors can find, buy, or craft items used to temporarily, permentantly, or artificially boost player hero stats, deal vast amounts of dps in-point or aoe, and to heal the hero and cure the infection. Survivors earn expirience and points with each undead bastard vanquished from existence.


Survivors must work to contain the spread of the mutagen. The longer the undead hoard is kept at bay and the infection contained, the greater the odds of survival. As the game advances, the undead hoards gain in strength and number--ultimately elite, special, and then ultimate zombies join the fray. Unique zombie types include those inspired by Left4Dead.

And remember, survivors, don't get ZoMbIfIeD.

Authors Notes

-- Created by me, FSK, in 2019/2020. This is my contribution to the WC3 custom game community I've got so much enjoyment from. I hope y'all like it. Eager for feedback :D

-- This map was created by modifying the unprotected and assumed open source map, ZOMBINATION, originally created by The_Spoon 2010. The release of this map seeks to celebrate Zombination's 10 year anniversary!

-- I attempted to contact The_Spoon on numerous occasions on Hive over numerous years. Spoon has been active on Hive numerous time since I reached out, and unfortunately I never heard back from him. Therefore, I assumed he was okay with me editing the map, and I proceeded with editing it. I spent a lot of time/effort on this project, and feel that this does Spoon's work justice (see below), and feel that I made reasonable attempts to reach out to him and since he never responded and the map is open source, it is acceptable that I used his map as a base for this map.

-- This map is intended to be a complement to the vanilla Zombination, not a replacement. The core game concepts are different, and the strategy and game play are unique to both maps. I highly recommend playing vanilla Zombination if you haven't. It's a great map. Thanks for your work Spoon, it was the inspiration for this map.

-- This project was not a simple edit of Zombination. Major changes have been made, including the addition of over 10 new zombie types, over 25 custom spells (some created by me), over 50 new custom items, the addition of 3 more abilities to each hero, the addition of unique systems to improve map expirience, the addition of 5 new heros (survivors), and the expansion of the map to include new unique areas, among many other changes/additions.

-- I consider this map complete. No plans for minor edits other than potential bug fixes (no major bugs expected, this map has been in beta for 6 months and throughouly tested).

-- It's possible I will release add-on content in the future, such as new item types, new heros, new zombies. No structural/major changes to map map would be made--this map is 'complete'.

RESOURCES USED:

(Note, while I strive to include all resources used and their author/source, some resources were taken from open source maps, and some were added prior to me understanding the rule submissions of hive/me planning to submit here. For these I made reasonable effort to determine the source/author, I some I was unable to determine, and some may have slipped passed me due to the shear number used. Please let me know if you know the reference for unlisted resources. Thanks.
