    Kino's Back Catalogue
    Uploaded for posterity :D
    Contains varied maps from 2007 - 2014


    An (almost) exhaustive compilation of functional wc3 maps I've done over the years.
    I might include terrain templates and unfinished works in the future.

    Downloads link to the actual map submissions.
    At the bottom of the thread are files anyway.

    BATTLES OF PASSAGE - Download
    Date: 2007
    Genre(s): Tactics
    Players: 2-4

    On a dying world, creatures form alliances in hopes of battling for the rights to cross a portal and escape the inevitable end.


    Overview
    It's a footmen frenzy-esque map that's a shameless rip of an old map called Hatchery Havoc by Aceheart.

    Author's Notes
    It has a surprisingly consistent visual theme. (Everything is blue)
    _____________________________________________________

    THE RECLAMATION - Download
    Date: 2007 est.
    Genre(s): SRPG
    Players: 1

    The Elemental Council has called for the reclamation of Roka'aram
    Once a vault for some of the greatest artefacts known.
    Among the ruins and rubble ancient evils lurk in the complex
    awaiting their next unlucky victim, hopefully you wont be next.


    Overview
    A sage and his elemental companion travel to the lost home of their order, hoping to reclaim it from ruin and perhaps a more sinister invading force.

    Author's Notes
    Simplistic and rough around the edges, very poor in the polish department.
    I have a soft spot for this one, think it captures the adventure/story driven RPG better than any of my other works.
    _____________________________________________________

    BOMBERS - Download
    Date: 14/7/2008, WC3C Map Contest
    Genre(s): PvP Arena, Minigame
    Players: 2 - 10​
    Overview
    Heavily inspired by the Skibi TD minigame, you place bombs and hope your enemies are near them when they go off.
    Get score for blowing up people.
    Most score wins.

    Author's Notes
    This is honestly terrible.
    Rather annoying to play under full house, getting kills is a pain since obviously nobody stands around waiting to get blown up.

    _____________________________________________________

    CHASM - Download
    Date: 2010
    Genre(s): Strategy, Defence
    Players: 2 - 6
    When the quakes began, the land was torn asunder opening a gaping tear in the earth.
    Two rival expeditions now compete to control the dark below an underland of untold riches and mineral wealth.
    However, there are more things than that to worry about.

    Overview
    A base builder with three way factions. Two player teams of 3 and a neutral hostile AI.
    Survive against the cavern's denizens, win by being the last person to be eaten by cave beasts.

    Author's Notes
    PvP by means of sabotage, imbalanced but interesting.

    _____________________________________________________

    URSHAN'S WALL - Download
    Date: 2012, THW MMC: Dungeon
    Genre(s): Dungeon Crawl
    Players: 1
    The lifeblood of the drylands were the rivers that were brought through Urshan's Wall from the highlands above.
    Not long ago, those rivers ceased to flow.
    Leaving the oases dry and the people desperate.
    Thus they sent a lone traveler to the foot of the wall.
    In search of bringing back water from the crags beyond.

    Overview
    A desert adventure with manual hack and slash combat.

    Author's Notes
    Controls like semi-arse.
    Reason why manual combat systems in wc3 need to be well thought out before being implemented.

    _____________________________________________________

    Clutch Defender - Download
    Date: 2013
    Genre(s): Minigame
    Players: 1
    Overview
    A storm drake must defend her nest against hungry wildlife...by spitting lightning at it.
    Try not to singe your own offspring in the process.

    Author's Notes
    I felt like making a whack-a-mole clone.

    _____________________________________________________

    Isle of Damnation -
    Date: 2010?
    Genre(s): Template
    Players: NA
    Overview
    An altered melee-esque template with a distinct scourge theme.
    Definitely pre-dates WoW: WoTLK as the ideas of scourge bases are very wc3-esque and not very Wowish.

    Was probably a template for Necropolis at one point.

    Author's Notes
    It's fair at best

    _____________________________________________________

    Sorrow's Ring -
    Date: 2010?
    Genre(s): Arena (Unfinished)
    Players: 1
    Overview
    A gladiator map, where you try to gain freedom in a deadly arena while impressing various judges with your martial prowess.
    Has a primitive form of non-linear difficulty and a scoring system beyond "stay alive", both are which are kinda neat.

    Author's Notes
    It's hardly working.

    _____________________________________________________

    DREAMVALE - Download
    Date: 2010 - 2015
    Genre(s): Tactics CRPG
    Players: 1-4

    Time passes for all, but for those who dream, time is eternal.
    And so within the walls of an ancient city, the brave and the insane descend into a sea of dreams.
    Where men never wake and time stands still.


    Overview
    Build a team of heroes and battle through 7 levels of arcade-y mayhem to escape the land of your nightmares.

    Author's Notes
    If you like tactical combat, but dislike everything else about RPG's, you may like this.
    Just maybe.
    It's not very good.
    __________________________________________________

    CREATION'S CRUCIBLE
    Date: 2014, THW MMC: Map Size Limited
    Genre: Idontevenknow
    Players: 1


    In a time when men, beasts and gods wore different faces and went by stranger names
    A castaway came across a shapeless world
    Not a smooth newborn sphere, but a desolate wreckage drifting among the heavens
    But he was not alone
    For the forces of his kin, who once unmade that very land lay slumbering in the mists
    Woken by the disturbance of creation's process, a new world to devour


    Overview
    Created for THW map contest: Map Size Limited
    A "mash elements and bomb people with them" map.
    Or particle accelerator sim 2014 as some might say.

    Defend a barren world from creatures trying to remove you from it's surface.
    Use materials to form matter that you can destroy things with.

    Author's Notes
    Not brilliant, doesn't really capture the intended feel very well.
    Elementcombinations are not particularly versatile while being very complicated at times.

    Indeed.
    Im thinking of just attaching everything to the page as to save time approving said maps. Some of them probably don't fit submissions rules anyway.

    Anyhow, im still trying to find a more organised template for this.
    Needs to be a way to just name-list everything and then somehow show the details only when needed.

    Subscribing. I like your Urshan's wall and played Dreavale a couple of times before. I really like your mapping style, its simple but very captivating. Keep it up!

    Try the "Tab" bbcode. It works the way you want it.

    That is like saying 99% of map made on war3 are trash.
