Minotaur's Labyrinth v1.6
Submitted by Shadow Fury
|----------||Shadow Fury Presents||----------|
Created by Shadow Fury
The Minotaur's Labyrinth offers an exciting horror experience to live out either alone or with your friends. The game is based on the greek mythology where you will fight the beast called *The Minotaur* in his large maze. Dare to venture in the obscure creepy atmosphere of the monotone maze in the role of a hapless villager and be careful not to get caught by the Minotaur! If he spots you, you must try to outrun him unless you want to become one of the many hundred corpses. To escape from the labyrinth, you shall not search for the exit, there isn't one! You must find an item called *Despair* and give it to a person called *The Cultist*. This is a pretty difficult quest so there's an alternative; kill the Minotaur! There are several items and weapons all around the maze to help you accomplish this task. Teamwork and cooperation are very important since the Minotaur is very strong. Only a group of heavily armed villagers may hope to slay him.
A thrilling, frightening and challenging gameplay experience which promises to give you intense fear
A dark terrifying monotone ambient to let you get lost easily while running around desperately
Real life resemblance. As you pick items, you'll see them worn on your own villager. Cool right? But what makes the game more realistic is that you can only pick one weapon per category, something not present in most Warcraft maps. For example, you cannot pick a sword and an axe or two shields. This means that you have to choose wisely the items you keep and throw away. One final real-life-like feature is the lighting system. If you manage to find a torch, the atmosphere will be less dark for you and for all the players around you
A lot of items, including books, logs and diaries to give you information or help you with your quests, and weapons to fend off or even kill the Minotaur
A secret chamber which can only be entered by finding a bloody key somewhere in the maze to unlock the gate closing it. It keeps something unknown to humanity from centuries because nobody ever managed to find it, will you discover it?
Up to 10 players can play the map. This can be played single player or multiplayer with a full house, at your preference!
Smart AI for both the villagers and the Minotaur, meaning that you can still play with other 9 computerized villagers in single player
A lot of characters to meet who will help you to kill the Minotaur or even escape. Some people, however, will only accept to help you if you give them something back or accomplish a task for them.
Areas of thicker fog. Keep away from such regions because they slow you down, providing a precious advantage to the Minotaur for slaying you
Various game modes which are the following:
Some helpful tips:
Scour for a torch! It's so dark in the labyrinth that you can scarcely see what's in front of you. However, if you find a torch, it'll be a big relief, trust me.
If you pick the item Despair, be ready to run! By picking it you'll drive the Minotaur mad, giving him maximum movement speed for 10 seconds and revealing your location constantly for that duration. If you manage to survive that or the Minotaur is just too far from you, don't hesitate to search for the Cultist then!
Didn't find Despair? Then don't *despair* too much. If one of your mates found it, keep looking for him instead. When a villager gives the Cultist a Despair, he's not the only one to leave the labyrinth; his followers are also allowed to escape so don’t miss the opportunity.
Cooperate! Find the AI buddies and they will follow you. If you keep walking on your own, death will await you very soon. If you are playing in multiplayer, it's even better. Gather into one place and let everyone of you have a specific role. Due to the range of weapons present, you can create different combos, each with different purposes. For example, Angelic Spear + Orb of Light = High HP regeneration so if you get a good deal of armor, you'll be the tank of the team. Another example is getting the Thorium Hammer + Energy Elixirs which will make you the stunner of the situation. A final example is getting a Torch because this will allow you and all players around you to have a better vision of the maze. Distribute the roles evenly, don't just go for the stronger items (for instance Torch is the weakest weapon but if you don’t have one you and your mates will enjoy the darkness).
Did you die too soon? There’s no need to hate yourself for that, you’ll be granted a second chance. You will become a ghost and your new task will be finding the black phantasm of Glandar. It’s unoffensive, don’t worry, but if we really need to talk about dangerous stuff, then be aware of the Soul Devourer. It is going to track your little ghost, make your task harder and try to vanquish you. It moves at a high speed so you have to find Glandar’s ghost quickly. Once you find it, kill it and you’ll revive.
Also thanks to:
WendigoWars is the original author. He created the layout of the maze and a few of the basic triggers. Besides, this map is all his idea, not mine. Basically, he gave me the foundations and I built on them this awesome map! Permission to upload this map myself has been given here
Before trying the map with the AI or in multiplayer, try it out yourself alone in single player to know how scary this game is. After doing so, I strongly encourage you to test the map in multiplayer and report any lag/bugs you encounter
The map will undergo various updates to implement the multiple missing elements like the purpose of the secret chamber
As I've always been an honest reviewer with your maps, I wish you to be the same when judging my map. Point out all the negative issues you found in it, I'll accept them as long as you provide constructive criticism to improve my map. Don't forget to report bugs/errors/glitches so that I can fix them as soon as possible! Thank you and have fun terror!
