I had to emergency fix the Buggy Army creator.Sorry for the inconvenience.

If you wishe to help :

If you played the game you may notice horrible custom icon with smudge abuse that hurt your eyes.Those are made by me.If you wishe to make a better quality icon I will gladly use them.

    I have heaps of fatal errors, depending on the hero i play already in the second mission.

    The story is... not existing and even the tiny amounts of text have spelling errors.

    Fenris/Rwolf suck hard due to their terrible health. Everyone else seems too powerfull, since once you have a decent aoe attack, you just spam that one till all eternity and let the ai tank.

    The blink-like spells are completely broken and allow you to jump over fully impassable terrain even out of the map.

    The terrain and the design is pretty decent, lots of destructible surrounding, flashy spells, though it sometimes gets confusing.

    Way too much ai-"creeps" on your side. It even starts lagging in the last level and my PC is decent.

    It's a nice hack'n'slay adaption, the fighting system is kinda cool (some more variety for a slight strategic aspect would be nice) though i had sometimes issues with executing a spell several times after each other while standing still, but completely lacks difficulty or strategy or variety and then the fatal errors (but that seems only happen to me...) made look much worse than it actually could be.

    I have fatal errors too. But all these things that you've negatively mentioned about are simple lacks. Mapmaker should fix them later versions, it is still beta stage and these things that you are mentioning are able to seen easily, I think...

    Is it just me, or Jabai's overpowered? He has it all : moderate health, powerful attack, good amount of mana, and super-powerful skills. I finished the campaign using him and it was very easy.

    Anyway, this campaign is simple yet fun! I am hoping to see new missions in the next update!

    by the way, how can I use the locked characters?

    The English could use some fixes here and there, and the map fatal errors on me after I complete the first mission. Gameplay wise it's pretty good though, don't like a couple of the heroes but the destructive environment and abilities are pretty cool. Also the combo system seems a little unresponsive, it'd be nice if you could que commands. (i.e. press A then D and have it do the special attack once it finishes A) right now I'm pressing A then mass pressing the D button to special, and for the A-A-D specials it's much harder to do because you have to time them. A que system would be nice but unnecessary, as it works right now just it seems a little unresponsive.

    -Teld

    great work so far, I can't really rate it though due to my inability to play through it because of crashes.

    Positives:
    Overall I really enjoyed the unique gameplay style in this game, and the heroes feel varied enough for me to want to try them all. The A and D key method of casting was fantastic and good fun, while the Right Clicking method of getting to face targets felt intuitive and fluid. The Destructible terrain added a great deal of eye candy and there was good use of custom models and special effects.

    Negatives:
    An obvious lack of grammar and spelling checks, though as English isnn't your first language, this is excusable in the early stages.
    The story was explained quite nicely (except the "this world is bullshit!" part - really killed the mood) but there was absolutely no evidence of any story in the game play itself.
    Each mission was exactly the same thing as the one before: There's a bunch of stuff, go kill it, game ends when you kill a big guy.
    The game could do with some items too!
    Another thing that annoyed me was that when the hero uses their normal attack on an enemy, it attacked you forever until you or it died, and this was incredibly bad for the lower health heroes like the 2 wolves.


    Overall:
    3.5/5 ====Rounded to====> 4.

    There's a great game concept here, but more emphasis needs to be placed on the story, and less on the spell effects and abilities - though they are pretty amazing.

    Cool map, a WC3 brawler.

    Both times I've tried playing Castle Defense with Jabai, it froze my WC3 at a random point into the mission...typically after using Furor.

    I'm aware of that issue.
    I've fixed it.
    But i didn't released the version where it's fixed yet.
    I want to have a lot of new contents before releasing next version.

    I've dled this a long time ago, it crashed in the second map, but I now played it again with a diff char (the bull-tauren hero) and I really liked it, finished fisherman village, after 3 tries that is, and I wished there were more levels, I really liked this game, and want to see more

    Terrain: 5/5
    Gameplay: 5/5
    -Spells: 5/5
    -Bugfree: 4/5
    -flexible gameplay: 4/5
    +1 for combo system
    +1 for destructable envirment
    Originality: 5/5
    Bugfree: 4/5

    I don't even know why I bother this list, this map gets a 5v5 no matter what flaws it has
