GOBLIN DOMINIONS!

If you have ever played Future Cop LAPD (on playstation 1), you will recognize the gameplay.
If you haven't, don't worry, you don't need to have played it to manage to play this map.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2rPuRDtL_s


Gameplay

  • It's a battle between teams of goblins for control over a mysterious secret tech complex. They fight for territory.
    The story itself is not very developped, neither is it really important. This map is about pure fun. Blasting, shooting, exploding things around (may include yourself) happily #-]

  • So you pick a Prototype (your hero) at your underground research lab, and start fighting for control of the secret tech complex.

  • The game revolves around 2 main concepts: Mobs and Turrets.

    Mobs
    They're units that can be sent from bases and outposts by players, however they are fully automated.
    They will take random paths all around the map to reach the enemy base, where the enemy Core stands, protected by strong defenses.
    Goal is to manage to get 1 mob into the enemy Core, which will cause it to explode in a huge nuclear blast!

    There are different types of Mobs serving various purposes. For example:

    -Tanks are cheap and spammable, allowing fast capturing of a wide undefended territory if they are not defended enough.
    They have an automatic attack that shoots while they progress towards the enemy Core, like most Mob types.

    -Choppers are defense helicopters that will patrol around the base, waiting for enemy tanks. They excel at killing Mobs but have more trouble if there's an enemy Prototype leading the assault.

    Other Mob examples (list not full)

    -Juggernauts are heavy versions of Tanks, much more costly but able to cruise through enemy territories, with their great resistance and strong automated weaponry.
    These are such a menace for the enemy team that their position is permanently displayed on minimap to both teams.

    -Demolishers are part of another type of Mobs, the destroyers. They will stop in front of enemy turrets until they demolish them. They can also attack other enemies, but with lesser efficiency.
    Those are great to reconquer some territory or and destroy Base and Outpost defenses, to let Tanks/Juggernauts reach the Core easier for example. They also provide durable help when fighting enemy Prototypes, unlike Tanks which will keep advancing forward.


    Turrets,
    on the other hand, occupy the whole surface of the tech complex. The fight for territory is about them:
    -Turrets are all neutral at start.
    -When a Prototype or a Mob approaches a Turret, it will instantly activate and be captured by the player who sent that Mob (or the owner of the Prototype).
    -Turrets will then defend the land around them until they are destroyed, in which case they will respawn neutral and be capturable again.

    Their advanced technology provide goblins with Points that they use to send more Mobs (or stronger ones) and buy Outposts.


    Outposts are remote bases that give many advantages, the most deadly being the capability to send Mobs closer to the enemy Core. You can imagine their surprise when a couple Juggernauts appear right next to their base :)
    Outposts also have special capabilities, like launching homing cruise missiles, deploying carriers, or selling advanced items for your Prototypes.

  • You get gold from destroying enemies, and a gold income based on your Outposts.
    You can spend it to buy items for your prototypes, and to make researches for your Prototype or your whole team's Mobs or Turrets.

    Damn I always loved Future Cop LAPD - one of my favs when I was younger, I still occasionally play it =P imo this is as close as to a recreation of it as you can while making it in some instances better. =P Prehaps you could add a preview video in the description? (so people know what it's like before they try it out) prehaps an instructions one in the description like Future cops original multiplayer briefing. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2rPuRDtL_s ) as I think it would improve the appeal - especcially if you had a similar voice over =P

    Nice, a veteran :) glad you like my transfer of the concept into W3.
    The preview video is a nice idea, i'll try doing that.
    And maybe i should aswell include the link you provided to explain the original concept to players (thanks alot for the link btw).

    Ah well i need to make introduction better then :/
    Meanwhile here is a step-by-step explanation:

    1) Pick your Prototype (hero) in your main Lab;
    2) Use your Mob Sender (F1) to send some Mobs;
    -They will automatically go to the enemy base, running a random path (they do change direction on the way)
    -When they approach neutral turrets they will automatically capture them, and turrets give you income to send more Mobs
    -They do have damage, it just doesnt show as a normal attack because it's automated (like in Battle Tanks).
    *Note that some Mobs actually have a normal attack, like Demolishers.
    3) Go with your Prototype to destroy enemy mobs and turrets captured by the enemy (they will respawn neutral, so you can capture them);
    4) Protect your Mobs so they can enter the circle of power in the enemy base. If at least one reaches it, you win :)


    And thank you for the comment :)

    Right, i guess a walkthrough is always useful for newcomers, i will do something like that, good idea :)

    EDIT: Oh and there are just a few upgrades, really, but i guess they need better organization, so i'll fix that too.

    Well i think nowadays it should be possible to have the full game probably for free (i have the game :) ).
    Still, this map has additions compared to it, and you have more choices than just your weapons ^^

    Very good maps. It's interesting, have a lot of possibilities, i like it ^^
    However, i guess things could be improved. But cannot exactly say what.
    Will probably replay it one day. 4/5

    Terrain is gross, but I suppose it is kinda hard to make it look good in this kind of map.
    Approve because of it's high replayability value.

    Yea terrain wasn't really my focus on this one, put short. When i resurrected the map i made it abit fancier but that's about it.
    Thanks for your quick review :).

    Well since i don't think i'll update this map much further, i'd rather have you review my Rival Dynasties or Chaos Colossus maps, that need it much more and are still beta unlike this one :)
    And hurray for FC:LAPD veterans ^^ !
