Space Orcs vs. Zombies v1.8x
Created by Calciumcarbonat

172819-albums6446-picture105469.png


Map Idea:

A teamplay orientated zombie survival game with Orcs in space!
Fight hordes of enemies, strong Bosses and find epic loot, while creating the ultimate defense!
But even though the game is easy to understand, it is very challenging and needs good positioning and teamplay.

Features:

7 unique, carefully designed classes, with different roles and playstyle
Easy to learn, but challenging difficulty
16 enemie types
80% trigger spells
Teamplay heavily required
Maximum of 12 players
3 tense boss levels

Gameplay:

Every player chooses one of the 7 classes. Each class has unique abilties and an important role in teamplay.
The Firebat for example is very tough and can act as a tank as a result. The Engineer on the other hand, is an expert in enhancing your defenses with his inventions.
Then your team will get attacked by waves of hostile undead units.
Each wave contains Zombies and either special mobs or a boss. The number of enemies depends on the number of players.
You can find new weapons and mysterious artifacts which zombies can drop on their death.
When a hero dies he can be revived by a medic or will respawn after the end of the current level. If all heroes are dead at the same time, the game is lost.

"Space Orcs vs. Zombies" is a 12-man player map based on a defense/survival theme.

"The game is outstanding, ranging from just a small map with enough defense specs is superb no much problems have been found during the game-wise."

"Terrain is tight and very small, but it would be best if you can give some tile variations or some outlandish environment mixed with fellwood's poisonous design."

"Overall its quite a good map with no much bugs found after the end of the game, the random pick when a user finishes the timed peon is cool, to my conclusion very useful and recommended for defense players and all."

Well, my SP is not working very well and for unknown reasons it always give me fatal error on each of maps I played so I can only test things in MP.

And the problem here is it is unplayable in MP but now the author has said fixed, I will be playing it now and give a review later. :cgrin:

Oh ok, well I just did play it in SP even in MP and it is quite hard but maybe playing with frends will change it so here is my review:

Space Orcs vs Zombies v0.7 Review

[+] Good Points:

-Terrain looks good but yu could have add some more doodads and some decors because it is so empty. There is nothing bad on adding and also you should have decorated more the spawning points like putting some amazing special effects on it.
-Great heroes. Heroes serves their purpose well in battle and they have custom skill and not just original and old plain Warcraft 3 skills.
-A balanced game with balanced creeps and heroes.

[-] Bad Points:
-None

[] Suggestions:
-Just some minor improveents such as adding doodads and some decors. Also add some amazing special effects at the spawn points to make it attractive and not just plain Poisonous Tiles and to be honest, you should change that Poisonous tile to somewhat a dark and deadly tile such as maybe blight and add Blighted Mists and special effects.
Overall, this really a good map with somehow decent to good terrain. Rated 3/5 and +4 REP to you.

Cheers and happy mapmaking! :cgrin:

man the cool models are of him, I know. But besides that theres Triggering, terraining, stuffs... your defense map is bothering similar to mine

Wait what?! I get the feeling that you are trying to troll me.. In your map you have to defend a little fortress which contains clifffs, walls, towers and stuff, while my tarrain is entirely flat. By playing your firebat class i noticed that your heroes have not many complex trigger spells and very different spells at all... your map has a storyline+cinematic, mine not ... so please come up with some valid arguements.

Looks like this is just a wrong judgement I guess..... btw, Calcium whats up with the map? :cgrin:

I hope your doin good with it and expecting for more updates!

Thank you Hell_Master :grin:
map is going well, I try to add more complexity to it step by step (At least 3 more classes and enemy types to go). At first I have to find some fresh ideas for the next update :wink:

That's a silly argument your trying to pull, The idea(let's add title, concept, genre, mechanics, ORCS vs. Worlds) has already been seen from past years, if you could do your time you can scour the approved "Shooting FPS, Modern Warfare" related maps with Space Orcs in it.

Now in this case, This map has entirely different game feature but has same objective "survive enemy waves till reach last level", game-wise it has no terrain(yours does), start of the game you picked out a hero in a tavern(you picked a hero in a dialog trigger), it has quest menu(you have none).

Totally speaking, everyone makes up ideas like this, its not special or anything and no stealing bravado has come to this work. We are all humans afterall.

Hey, there, bro. Just thinking, I noticed your games terrain to be empty and I didnt even suggest something to improve it so here:

If you want to make your terrain more haarder and requires careful building of walls or crates, you can add some doodads, destructibles or decors to improve terrain and at the same time, it will make the players think twice before build spamming crates. Will it block areas or such questions will come.

Seems even better that I thought. It's actually fun to play!
In most games of this type I tend to pick 1-3 heroes which I like, because others are boring... it's not an issue here, every single orc is entertaining and well planned.

Bug:
- Sniper's Bio Weapon skill instead of slowing zombies - speeds them up.

Suggestions (mine, so not really creative):
- Add a few more items, just a few :3
- Maybe Firebat should have some small splash passive damage? Just to finish wounded enemies around without sometimes wasting AoEs.

Thanks for the feedback and the suggetions :grin:. I will implement them in the next version! I also plan to rework the sniper entirerly, since I don't really like how he plays at the moment.
