Secret Rooms - Escape 3

Submitted by Ordworse
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
The final part of my trilogy. New things: shops, logic and skillful rooms, hidden coins (copper, silver, gold). Monster are new too. I think this is the best episode of the Secret Rooms Trilogy.

    Note : Well done, this map terrain seems to be superb and been carefully set up by you.

    As for the trigger, it seems like the entire trigger was leaking. Since this map ain't a multiplayer map, I would give a exception for it. However, I notice some trigger are partically useless as they could be merge into 1 simple trigger instead of making a multiply trigger of it - which it execute the same function.

    Here is where you did the wrong setup.

    • Troll2
      • Events
        • Unit - Room Monster (TrollCaster) 0077 <gen> Is selected
      • Conditions

        • Game - Display to (All players) for 2.00 seconds the text: Sorry. It hasn't go...
        • Wait 1.00 seconds
        • Item - Remove (Random item in Coinkilller <gen>)

        • Item - Remove (Random item in Coinkilller <gen>)


    You could have just merge them into 1 trigger like this.


    • Troll2
      • Events

        • Wait 1.00 seconds
        • Item - Remove (Random item in Coinkilller <gen>)


    As for the AI setup I view at this trigger, it seems to be very bad. I suggest you to improve it by making a alternate trigger for it.

    For this trigger, I suggest you to add a turn off this trigger action to it. As constantly enter the region could repeat the sequence, but since you did not add any action such as play sound or other type of action - It would be fine, but I suggest you to add turn off trigger action if you do not want it to be repeat.

    • Room 7 Switch 2 event
      • Events
        • Unit - A unit enters Switch2 <gen>
      • Conditions
        • (Unit-type of (Entering unit)) Equal to Player
      • Actions
        • Destructible - Kill Foot Switch 0673 <gen>



    Judge from CMarket review and most of the trigger setup, the resources doesn't seems to be bugged. This resources is not ready to be recommend yet, I suggest you to add difficulty setting that set the amount of unit hp, unit damage and etc etc.

    As for now, approve and rating is 3/5 from me.

    Bugs

    - Everything seems to be working in order. I didn't find any major or minor bugs. The author of the map gave credits where credits were due and put the map in the appropriate Type. Good job.
    The Review

    - A really good and professional single player maze map that consists of 30 rooms, each containing a different challenge(although some of them get repeated). I can really see that you, unlike many many others, put a lot of effort here and I commend you for that.

    - The terrain is really good for a maze.

    - The gameplay is good but the game itself is too easy, except for the last boss. I would recommend reducing the main hero's health because after you get a health stone it really gets easy.

    - The final boss is a bit too hard unless you stock up on health potions. If you go around buying armor and tomes of health it can get tricky.

    - There are only four items to buy which are enough in this current state(seeing as how there aren't too many coins) but if you want to give the player a bit more variety in his strategy it might be a good idea to add a few more.
    Overall
    - A good maze map. As I've said, I see that you put a lot of time into it and I congratulate you for it.

    - You made a trilogy and you actually finished it. That gets you bonus points.
    My Advice
    - Add more rooms. I want to play more ;)

    - Generally the game is quite easy. I suggest increasing the difficulty or adding a game mode title "Hard" or something that decreases your hero's health by 70% or something all the way to the boss level(where it gets restored to normal because the boss is rather hard on it's own). Just a suggestion.

    - Try making all your rooms have a different challenge, some of them are repeating.

    - I am not sure if you wanted to do that, but in the "Run for your life" room the "maze" you have to run through can simply be avoided by running forward. You might want to fix that in case it's a bug.

    - As I've said, it might be a good idea to add more items.

    - The story is somewhat unoriginal. Try making the Master be some mad doctor or something, don't link him to the warcraft lore.
    Score
    - I recommend this map to all maze lovers. 3.5/5 and approved.

    Thanks for comments :)
    @CMarket: There are a lot of coins, just some of them are very hard to find. In the map there are three gold coins only, and these gold coins are in very tricky places.
    And you said that the story is unoriginal. This trilogy hasn't got story
    Just maps without storyline. I want to add a story but I can't find a good story for them. Shit.
    BTW thanks for your rating, you maked me happy:grin:

    No problem. I was once an eager mapper too and I know that when you work this hard on something it's important to get acknowledged for it.

    I am a great story maker and if you decide to create a new maze series(which I would really look forward too) feel free to PM me and ask for my help, or better yet add me if you have a messenger: kafana91@yahoo.com

    Problem... Stucking...:

    I'm in room 5, I got the cheese, got the coin (was it silver? or copper?) and answered the question what's the capital city of England... Nothing happened... What I gotta do now? :confused:

    Code Lyoko here is your answer:
    Warning! Spoiler!
    Scroll the mouse on the cheese. It says "Read the description". Drop the cheese on the ground and click it. It gives you a number. Type it and voila!

    Well, that was mildly diverting for ten minutes. More story, more characters, more RPG elements, I don't know. It needs moar.

    Not to say it wasn't bad. Maybe a little bit more terrain polish (floating bridges in some places most noticeably, ctrl + pg dn is your friend), but otherwise, quite good. :)

    It says read the description. An item's description is displayed when it is not carried by a unit.

    @Code Lyoko:
    Look, if you want to change the description of an item (when it is not carried) in object editor, find the item, then click on description and type that you want. I think the you mean description = tooltip, but no.
    (Sorry if I have any typo errors, I'm Hungarian)

    Great job!
    Good things:
    -There was a lot of rooms and none of then seemed boring
    -Finding coins was fun even if I found only one gold coin :)
    -colorful terrain and good looking monsters as laways

    Bad things:
    -at the start of the game I was a bit annoyed about being paused for so long
    -as Septimus said some trigger could be made better but that's no big deal since gameplay don't suffer for that

    Suggestions:
    I was a little disappointed when I checked all shops and they were selling same stuff. You could make that first shop sells armor, second shop sells sword and third shop sells shield (of course they sell regular stuff too).

    By the way. Will Septionus change his review later. it's way too long.
