Maybe, you could write a more informative description if there's anything to point out. Seems like a joke, this one. The protagonists were already out and on the shore while the ship was just closing in? Play music through the music channel not the...

    It's nice for once to play a game where the point is to just relax.

    Tourists arrive on the island and are presented two options: to *believe* there's a giant enemy crab, or to relax. The best way to win is the second one.

    I've played this map ~10 times now and also contributed some code. I recommend playing.

    Maybe, you could write a more informative description if there's anything to point out. Seems like a joke, this one.

    1. The protagonists were already out and on the shore while the ship was just closing in?
    2. Play music through the music channel not the one for sound.
    3. Why piglets? How's that related to the crab? Also, it has a big selection circle.
    4. What's with the volcano? I thought there'd be some intense defense mini-game here.
    5. Funny how the boat was left untouched by the crab gang until later.
    6. The green rocks have no death animation so the model still remains there.
    7. No house upgrade not to disturb lumber gathering?
    8. Looks like if you block the bridge in time, the crabs don't know how to get to the barricades and try getting to tourists on the other island by not being able to cross the river.
    9. The next (two) Statues of Strong Manliness don't block the way. Units can circumvent.
    10. The Naga Sea Witch is pretty weak.
    It's a fun team game but I feel it's too short. More ideas could have been thrown in. Maybe add more player building/unit variety too.

    Approved.

    ADDITIONAL NECESSARY INFORMATION
    • A credits list in the map thread description is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated too.
    • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
    • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.

    GIANT ENEMY CRAB GOT CRUSHED BY THE VOLCANO.
    Really this map is so ridiculously good. Love it. The only thing I feel bad about is that it is kinda short.

    Thanks for the kind words and feedback guys :thumbs_up:

    This map was originally created during a 24h-mapping challenge, hence the short duration and anti-climactic finish.
    Recently coke and me addressed some of the most crucial issues, so that it could be published.
