Map Introduction:
This puzzle map is close to being finished. You can already play 30 different rooms by solving the puzzles in them. Estimated play time varies a lot. If you are a fast thinker and know Warcraft III well enough you can play it through in mere 20 minutes. If not it will offer you hours of game play which will drive you on the verge of giving up - unless you do give up.

Last update fixed a bunch of bugs: servant's, item tool tips and so on. At the current state the map also has an ending - however you can also pick an option that is not yet finished, only treasure chamber route is finished.

    • Verdict
      + Creative
      + Polished
      + Terrain
      - Small details


      The map's quite creative - There are multiple puzzling methods, such as summoning a murloc through the wall, teleporting to your murloc, ordering a wisp to harvest wood + blocking it so that it gets off the tree on the other side, force walls that only allow the main character to pass through, etc.
      It's polished, the quest log contains the commands, the spell tooltips are well understandable and the game message are also colorized and quick to read.
      The terrain is pretty neat, it resembles a dungeon, it's filled, you've done justice to the chosen tileset.
      Though some small issues still have to be addressed: '-respawn' doesn't seem to be working.
      Also add a game option that removes the timer.
      And one last thing, pan the camera and select the player once a room is reset.
      I'll be waiting for more content~! Good job.

    Well triggered, cool puzzle concept and some nice terrain, I really felt like I was running through a dungeon. The time limits can get a little too short though.

    Keep up the good work! 4 / 5 so far
    Look forward to seeing more!

    Which room(s)?

    Note: Difficult system and skip cinematic system has been created in private version. Still needs some testing and fixing though.
    You can get the private version, just PM me and ask for it.

    Hello,

    I wish I could help people more when I comment. But unfortunately 40% of my laptop screen is broken so I could not test out the gameplay.

    Therefore I could only suggest a little things for you, just remember these are only suggestions:

    • Map Preview (currently it looks ugly seeing a big pile of yellow terrain)
    • I see that you put shrubs and small plants around the room, perhaps you can make the room more 'alive' by replacing them with animated ones?
    • I have only played until Room 3 (As I said my screen have problems), so I dont know what happens after that. But I think since this is a puzzle game, the clues should be less obvious. Perhaps you could make the clues in form of poetry? or doodads? old journals? etc
    • Oh and finally, the soundtracks occupy too much filesize. Therefore, I opened your map (apologies for that), extracted the mp3 and tried to reduce the filesize.

      I cant tell the difference in quality, so I suggest you to use this one. But then again, this is optional.

    I'm enjoying this map a lot. I'm glad you've listened to suggestions and added things like 'reset' I'm gonna play this new version right now.

    Bug: On room 13 I found a bug with the servants. The second skeleton shot a net at me the first time, but then I screwed up and restarted the room. He wouldn't throw a net any time after that. He wouldn't even throw it at the wisp so I couldn't finish the room.

    Timers aren't working, until you pick up a timer gem.

    Type +1 then -restart.

    Dungeon Secrets is a puzzle map made by Remixer. It contains twenty puzzle rooms, two of which are boss rooms. The player must think critically and quickly to complete the rooms. A map with a puzzle concept isn't my favorite for map, but the puzzles you made were decently made and progressively harder. The puzzles didn't become repetitive, but as I only played up to room ten (I can't figure it out!), they might become that way in the later levels. I liked the idea of implementing items into a puzzle map, but because they were all one use, it was really easy to mess yourself up. However, the items were certainly better than just traps. I've seen enough 'puzzle' maps with traps the whole way. The atmosphere in the beginning was great, especially with the music added. However, as the puzzles continued, I started thinking the temple wasn't trying to trap me but help me! Respawns, friendly Spirits, and lots of Summoned Murlocs! I think the game should be more unforgiving to the player, with no respawns. Also, I'm not sure if this is a bug, but the Summoned Murloc from room nine does not dissapear. Is this intentional?
    Even though I'm not a fan of puzzle maps, this map is made well and the puzzles are well executed.
    4/5

    Thanks for all the feedback now to some answering:

    Yes, I've disscovered a leaking in Servant's triggers and that has been fixed, expect a bug fix update today.
    Yes, I am aware of this bug and I am trying to think of a good solution to fix it. You can evade this by entering Room 1, and then using commands.
    I did not understand what you meant, could you describe more what happened?
    Yes, I am aware of this also. In the update today I will make it so that any other unit than Main Unit trying to move from a room to another room will get removed from the game.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Map has been updated:

    1. Fixed bug where Servants would not attack after they walked on Spike Trap.=) Also made some other improvements to system according them.
    2. Fixed bug where Timers would not work properly if you typed commands before entering Room 1. They now works in every room even before entering Room 1.
    3. All other units than Main Unit dissapears when you complete a room. However there is still possibilty to spawn unit through a gate to another Room but it's pretty useless.
    4. Fixed bug where Ghouls would not stop attacking after unit entered to the region and died.
    5. Improvement to terrain (some bling bling trash)

    Known Bugs:
    - Room 18 restart does not work properly ( Time Gem won't dissapear )

    A very engaging map, which surprises me, as I expected it to be something that requires speed or reaction, but it actually does not, as every level is easy after you've figured it out. (I don't like to rely on speed)
    It took me a while to find anything that I could complain about.
    4/5 - Would be 5 if I hadn't found any bugs.

    Bugs:
    • 1 - I went with my murloc from room 9 to 10 and hit the switch. A few tries later the switch hadn't reset, so I had to just wait out my first try on room 10.
    • 2 - Room 12 - The end. On the first try the servant ran after my wisp as it was supposed to do(and went out of the way)
      On all tries after that it ignored me, so there was no way to finish the room anymore. (not fixed I guess)

    Suggestions:
    Add a quick restart button or functionality(when the player knows what he did wrong he won't want to wait).

    - There is a '-restart' command, however I will add seperated message from it, instead of showing it in Quests.

    - Bugs you mentioned has been fixed.

    - It does not rely on speed if you play on Easy, or Normal. But you can also choose Hard or Insane. Insane is based on my completing time which in some rooms is only 5, 10 or 15 seconds that on normal has like 45 seconds.

    It slowly became frustrating to me, as it turned too much into a game of speed. I don't think that it's a good idea to force people to think fast. I don't like it at least. It would maybe be fine if the dangerous parts were made easier in comparison, so that I wouldn't have the start over every single time I forget something or make a small mistake.

    Notes:

    I just noticed that the loading screen picture looks epic

    Room 12
    the spike trap disappears and there is no more d
    Some of the text is missing or cut off at the end.

    Room 13
    I teleport to the second lever and then I can't get out, as the wisp is stuck behind me and I am stuck in front of it.
    On the next try I succeeded, but I think it would be good if it was possible to maneuver inside that little hole.

    Room 14 was... deep. I like it a lot what you did there with the hint.

    Room 15
    Too little time and the pathing around the first tree is buggy. Most of the time the wisp rather jumps behind a pile of rubble than on the other side of the tree.
    Eventually I never finished this room because of the bugginess. It's pure chance after figuring it out and I don't like it when that happens.

    Room 16(ghoul room)
    [...] as long as
    Text is cut off and doesn't appear in the log either

    Room 17
    Simply timing and figuring out that one reset time is longer .I didn't like this one, as it's about speed.

    Room 19
    Doesn't reset properly when using -restart. Thus, becomes impossible, since red circle no longer creates a murloc(also there's items on the ground from my previous try)

    Room 20
    My first try activated the circle.
    On the second try it hadn't deactivated
    After the second try this and the previous room reseted properly.
    I don't want to finish this. Whenever I make a mistake I have to start over. It wasn't like this on the first boss level and it's getting on my nerves. But I guess that's how it was destined to be from the moment that you made units that actively deal damage(turning it into a game of speed, which kind I don't like)

    room 20
    I pull the levers in the right order. Doesn't work.
    Repeat, doesn't work
    Repeat, now it worked.

    Enter blight with main unit
    Ghoul attacks main
    Enter blight with a minion
    Ghoul attacks minion
    Leave blight with minion
    Ghoul still attacks minion(and leaves blight)

    Room 21
    Don't use the "pull levers in the right order" unless there is a hint about what order they should be in. It's basically like telling the person to repeat exactly what they did(in the opposite order), with no apparent point. It's tedious to have to repeat things until you find the right order(after all, this isn't gambling, this is a puzzle game, so it should require brains, not luck)

    Then I entered the next room and nothing happened. I guess it's unfinished there (version h)

    Thank you for the feedback Xonok.
    Current Progress:
    - Trying to make triggers leakless. (So far Triggers of Room 1-10 done.)
    - Trying to fix as many bugs as possible.
    - Trying to finish few more rooms before a new update.

    Overview:

    Gameplay

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    "Dungeon Secrets" is a Mini-game that is filled mostly with puzzles and a maze that much covers the puzzle to start with, with rooms for about 20 each to solve, the player must finish the game in a specific seconds and win by reaching the last puzzle.

    "The game is very unique and 20 puzzles to be complete will satisfy those who plays solo in such maps no much problems controlling the unit and items that needs to be used in special areas this map is good and recommended for single players."

    Terrain

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    "Terrain has enough detail about showcasing a ruin dungeon of some sort and with the commonly yet useful sunken ruin theme the map has an eye-candy for players."

    Management

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    "Overall map is fine and really exciting to play same goes to its replay value and game-wise, although the trigger output that lets the unit to stop every time a player enters a new room can deplete a second of a timer, you can either remove that trigger that stops the unit so the player can continuously move around the room, also it would be nice if you can give a command that will generate tips on how to successfully finish a room e.x 'having problems with the Spirit unit? simply block its path to prevent skiping a ground etc', any else no much problems nor bugs encountered."
