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.

    This map is really good, except for one thing: the last boss is freaking imposible to kill. I don't know if I chose the wrong powers at the beginning (I chose everything about Zeus), but the last boss is not hard, is freaking imposible to beat. After a while it begins to summon tons of minions and the little reinforcements become completely useless. Out of the sudden I'm fighting 50 monsters and the boss at the same time, that with out mentioning that Typhoeus has a homing attack wich hits me every time, while I'm dodging a billion missiles and by that time, Typhoeus is healing faster than what I'm able to inflict in terms of damage, even having the last spells in maximum level (Zeus wrath and the one that deals 600 damage). I think you should make something about this, perhaps making it summon less minions or reduce Typhoeus regeneration to zero, because rigth now the only way to beat the game is cheating. Besides that, is a very nice map.

    Thanks, Plasma_Boy. Well, yes it is really hard, and it is possible, I managed to complete it on Advanced without cheating, perhaps it was easier for me because I knew all the mechanics and how it all worked. I suggest you to burst Typhoeus at the very beginning as hard as you can, in this case pure Zeus is not so effective, stun and area of effect damage is not really what you need to max out damage done to one target. When there are too many minions, run around Typhoes in circles, heal and save, when saved, attack Typhoes once, go back and run another circle, save after each successful attack and soon its health may become zero. When Typhoes dies, all minions around it dies immediately, don't relax when it dies, Typhoes may morph into another being, watch out for lifebinding spheres as well. Good luck!

    I just notice the game looks an cuz only few are commenting but I must say this is only the first game that you will need to have tactics to beat a BOSS. It makes the game fun. All of your games are cool.


    ....Im waiting for your Seth's Reign.....:thumbs_up:

    Well finally I completed the map, I have to say is a very nice map, in terms of terrain, gameplay, music, spells and models. I have to say that in the battle against Typhoeus, its transformation was easier to beat than his previous form. The only thing I don't like is that from the experience of playing the game, I can tell that when you choose the ultimate power of your hero, if you don't choose the one of Ares, is verly unlikely that you may defeat Typhoeus, and that in normal mode, because I guess in advanced it must be imposible (I didn't played it in adavanced mode). One thing you should consider is to ask for the help of someone to aid you with the dialogues and the grammar, because even though english is not my native language, I saw some things that were written badly. I tell you this because I see you put a lot of effort in the map, so it would be nice to polish that part to keep the sense of epicness of the game.
    Also when you talk to Zeus at the beginning, the voice has an echo, but when you talk with him at the end of the game, his voice is normal.

    Overall 5/5!

    Rise of the Gigantes... the only first RPG in Warcraft that has the strong enemies and bosses, not too hard and not too easy! This is the factor that makes the game cool. It's like Im playing Diablo!

    Let me review your map based on what I play. But first view this score screen!

    Score Screen:

    ... Ok, let me introduce to you, the Score Screen! This is your guidelines for the score you will recieve after the review so read this first!

    IF...
    you got 1-10 out of 50 points = A rating of 1/5 and no REP

    you got 11-20 out of 50 points = A rating of 2/5 and no REP

    you got 21-30 out of 50 points = A rating of 3/5 and +REP

    you got 31-40 out of 50 points = A rating of 4/5 and +REP

    you got 41-50 out of 50 points = A rating of 5/5 and +REP


    GAMEPLAY: 10/10
    ... I see nothing wrong with the gameplay as far as I played... The gameplay is great. Mythology is really great!

    TRIGGERS: (Includes voice acting) 7/10
    ...Based on my playing experience, you really have used many triggers to activate musics, display texts, random events and more... Good job for the effort but the problem is the voice acting. I see only little effort in the voice acting but that's okay! This map is still open for improvements.

    ITEMS: 6/10
    ...Too few items! Make some more. An RPG should have lots of items. For example, there are only 2 items in the shop of Town Herugnos! Remember that Items is a part that makes RPG game cool.

    TERRAIN: 10/10
    ... Fantastic terrain! You are really good at this one. So neat and makes the game realistic and makes the game beautiful. But I sometimes see some moving tiles. I dont know if its in my graphics card or in your game but that's nothing to do with this factor. So lets move on!

    USER FRIENDLY: 10/10
    ... I see no lags in the game and its easy to learn the mechanics in the game. The game is user friendly!


    TOTAL: 43/50
    ... That's almost perfect! The only problem is the voice acting and the items. Improve this game and you'll achieve success. So for now, I rate this map 4/5 and I give you a +REP!


    EDIT 1: Looks like I need to spread +REP to REP you again and to be a member for 10 days so I can rate your map. Well, for now I'll spread and after 10 days, I'll rate your map!

    You're welcome. :)

    Thanks, FinalMix. Well yes, voice acting is rather blunt here, but at least it is not only a floating text. :) Not many items indeed, but as for map's size I believe it have enough of items. But hey, it is 43/50, it should have been 5/5 according to your table!

    While 'Camera Lock' has its uses and can be cool, that's why it's called a -zoom [CMD] System (from values 200-3500+.) And there's also a way to make a loose camera more stable by not making it so sensitive each time your cursor goes to the side of the screen. I forget the trigger/code line exactly, but it's there.

    The Zoom System in my game (linked below) also has a command where you just type -zoom and it sets the value you previously had before in case you hit your Scroll Wheel by accident instead of having to type the value again.

    If you'd like to use my Zoom System, you can copy from my sample map in this PasteBin http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/pastebin.php?id=ym63z6

    It is easily customizable. Just CnP it to try it out.

    One thing I like to use is this line if you'd like to automatically set all player cameras at a high value from the get-go.

    • Camera - Set (Triggering player)'s camera Distance to target to (Real(3500)) over 0.00 seconds


    If you were to put the above in your Map Init (Triggering Player) would of course have to be related to in a variable. Or you can use a player group to pick every player, but that causes a leak if you do it that way. It can be cleaned though.

    Just something to think about or try out.

    Hehe, I guess you'll have to try harder, nothing else I could advise. If I recall correctly, it has some anti-cheat systems, but only against bosses.

    You are askin for an opinion and yet you answered quite negatively. Try to chill, it's not always Games will go in your favor, you have to work hard to make the game in your favor.
