Rise of the Gigantes
v1.35


Introduction / Author's word

This is few hour gameplay long single player RPG. Map is fully voice recorded, it also contain various models as well as two ancient-greece-like music tracks so that is the reason of its size. Map contain over 40 custom units, 18 custom items, certain spells are up to choose. Gameplay is intense, it sometimes require to be smart or to be very quick, it is also needed to know game mechanics to play successfully. Map contain two game modes: Normal & Advanced. Advanced one is harder, it also may produce more items, enemy units or even unit special ability changes. There are 4 terrain and environment art types. Map is not protected. It took 18 days to create the map. (2012-06-20 - 2012-07-07)

Why to pay the time and download? Because it is challenging, intense, atmospheric and skill & insight requiring game even though it is rather short. It is also based on an interpretation of ancient greek myth. I am also not planning to add new hero or something, I am not planning to reduce its size as well. Map may cause leaks, but it is single player so it is not a matter of importance, leaks are minor. Feel free to do with the map whatever you wish.

Storyline

Time ago, Zeus the deity of the skies imprisoned dangerious and evil titans in the pit of Tartarus for the greater good. The titans were the blood of Gaia the goddess of Earth, sons of her. Tremendous anger filled Gaia and she now seek to dethrone Zeus himself and to unleash her anger upon earth.

She gave birth to the tribe Gigantes and one creature known as the father of all monsters. She sent the creature and the tribe of giants upon earth and Zeus in order to exact her avenge.

The horrors pierce earth like never before and it seem to be far from ending.

    So I'm totally stuck on the "treasure creation" he just regenerates too fast for me to kill. I'm level 8 with full gear and a few agility tomes. I didn't get the second skill at all though so maybe that has something to do with it? I feel like I'm supposed to get him to hit himself with his own spell but I'm not sure how to do that.

    Well... I used a town portal stone to leave the area and buy a few more agi tomes, but now the area is blocked off. If I put the wrong skills I guess I have to restart to beat this anyways.

    I'm so sorry about that, I can't believe I missed that place to block from using Stone. Redownload if you wish to avoid getting area blocked.
    You guessed right. It is nearly impossible to kill it due to its regeneration rate, so the only way is to make him step on his own spell area of effect. Try to be as close as you can, try to be near him when he cast the spell. When he does, agro / pull / drag him to yourself so that he step on it when he chase you. Be careful not to step on the flames. You can also shoot Double-Blade Strike at him when he step on flames to stun him for few seconds there. Best thing would be to drag him to yourself, stand on the edge of flames and allow him to attack you while he stand on flames and you near the flames. I recommend to save the game after each successful spell cast.

    Cheats? No sir :) Exploit ? Yes. I just walked around the mountain (clockwise), exploiting zeus's low movement speed, spamming my first skill and everytime I was at full health I attacked him in melee combat. :) It's actually pretty easy to kill him, but it takes alot of time (somewhere between 5-7 minutes on normal dificulty).

    Haha, great. If you managed to achieve this, you are worthy to be victorious in my opinion. Perhaps I may increase difficulty there, slightly.

    Hi! I wanted to say: nice map! I have some criticisms, but for now I'm just wondering:
    Can anyone beat the final boss? I got to final fire boss, but I can only barely get him down to about 2000-3000 health by which time the whole screen is filled with summons. I've tried focusing on the summons to keep my army alive, but this strategy failed because eventually they get summoned too fast. I also tried focusing down the boss, but this failed even harder, as my army was obliterated faster.
    Is there any particular strategy that would work well? I have max level, double Athena, and I think I have all the equipment (ring, armor, shield, helmet).
    Thanks!

    I suppose you play Advanced? Well, it is tough indeed, it took me much effort to beat the boss, but I did it.

    First of all what I suggest you to do is:
    1) Don't damage the boss hard at start, don't damage at all, wait until you gather as much forces around you as you can, kill enemy spawns only.
    2) When you see boss summoning the fire guys for the first time, bam, forget the spawns, BURST boss as hard as you can. In this situation the Blessing of Ares and following Athena would be a nice combination.
    3) Once you cannot burst boss due to too big amount of spawns (Boss should be at 2000-3000 at this moment) and you see yourself getting damaged real bad, step back and run around the map, heal yourself and repeatedly return and hit the boss with spell or attack few times until his HP runs out.

    It took me a lot of game saving. I also suggest you not to acquire the rune which is dropped by Porphyrion, leave it for the main boss, I suggest not to take Rune from the chest there as well, leave for the last confrontation.

    Another thing is, when you kill the giant head, a bigger part of spawns are killed around it, leaving an empty space, then boss Morph into another one, tactic is the same. Try to survive, attack and go back repeatedly, save game often, watch out for Lifebind Spheres if game is Advanced. Good luck!

    Well, first of all, kill Lifebind Spheres, Giant regenerate fast only because of the spheres and spheres are killable, but try to kill them when they channel the spell, try to avoid stunning them because spheres have some vast regeneration rate so killing it while it regenerate would be time wasting, it transfer hit points to the giant while channeling. Simply burst boss and try to kill spheres as fast as you possibly can. Advanced mode is way tougher and it may require different tactic as there are even three spheres with way stronger hit points transfering.

    Remember that when saving dont save on places like where lags always happens, crowded place cuz it can cause lags too and bosses that summons a lot of monsters can cause lags! If you save on places that always lags there is a chance when you load the game it will give FATAL ERROR.:thumbs_up:

    Thanks.

    Oh, you would like to have a bigger variaty of blessings and powers? I see, that might be possible, but currently I work on another project and this kind of update would require a lot of time to balance and test.

    What do you mean by checkpoints? I doubt it is possible to restore all data from certain point except by saving the game.

    I think he means for check points is that when you die... you will revive there or something like that... But I think If you did this checkpoint thing.... the Defeat Condition will go to waste! Cuz you always revive.
