[Rainbow]Starship Troopers[/rainbow]

I Proudly present you, Starship Troopers:
Non-Stop Actions game, based on the movie Starship Troopers.
The Commander RASCZAK is trapped with his troops on a hostile planet, Bugs are coming from everywhere to eat them all.
Your mission is to protect the commander until the spaceship comes to save you over 35 min.
You can revive, buy items, make upgrades and most important is: Don't forget to reload your weapons!

Choose from 5 specific classes: Medic, Engineer, Firebat, Sniper and Captain. Each of them has specific abilities.
Player 1 (Red) can choose the difficulty: Normal or Hard.
There is music from Starship Troopers movie in game.
You can play with AI, they don't need to reload weapons but can't buy items or make upgrades so it is better to play with real players if you want to win.
This map is protected.

The game play is intense, the atmosphere gave a strong view as well on the models shown for the game, however the game's statistics is lacking due to the "no refill of ammunition", the endless wave of bugs is countless which requires the game to atleast you give a spare to survive, but likely it is not. I suggest filling in ammunition for all starship trooper players for them to last long.

The game is lacks firepower, the bugs are too strong for just 4 waves to come by, it would be of fair treat if you can least weaken the early mobs and slowly increase them in a way the players are prepared for a mid-late heavy assault against the enemies, yet this is lackign as well you might want to add it too.

The terrain and game visuals is that make the game more appealing, however it would be of best if the game play was more strongly build for decent survival mechanics.

Overall, map can be approved.

A map which seemed good at the beginning but it wasn't so. Those are the reasons:-

BAD POINTS:-
- The terrain was too badly done and unfitting to the map's theme. It's a modern map and I pick my hero from a tavern? Same goes for the old medivial bookshelves which don't fit at all the map. Then, I see only two tiles used inside the base. I can ignore putting only the sandy tile outside the base, but inside I cannot. And talking about doodads, where the hell are the modern ones? There are a lot on the hive Models' section. There is even a whole category for them
- The time was far too long. It's about an hour of gameplay which gets really repetitive and boring. The towers are far too resistant and take ages to be destroyed. I would have appreciated a shorter but harder game, like 10 minutes of total chaos instead of 50 of boredom
- I don't get why the mine of the Firebat is called Statis Trap when I place it
- The spell Invulnerability still has the buff of Divine Shield. I wonder if other abilities have the buffs untouched
- Why did you use an autocast icon for the Engineer's Repair skill?


SUGGESTIONS:-
- Search for futuristic doodads for the map and use more tiles in the base. That tile for the cliff seems good. For every cliff there must be its fitting tile
- Weaken the towers and bunkers and decrease the time to no more than 15 minutes. This will make the game shorter, non-repetitive and exciting. Otherwise no one would like to replay the map again
- Fix those small issues about the buffs. First thing, the "Mine" should be called "Mine" and not "Statis Trap". The 3rd skill of the Firebat, its buff should be called "Invulnerability" and not "Divine Shield". If there is any other thing like this, fix it
- Any icon submitted here on the hive must have a BTN + DISBTN icon, not only the autocast one so change the icon of Repair to the BTN one


OVERALL RESULT
In conclusion, the map is boring, lacking of replayability and of a good futuristic theme. For those issues, I give this map 2/5 and AWAIT UPDATE!

FEEDBACK
Gameplay:

long gameplay...i suggest you to lower that or put more things in the game so people won't get bored.strategic map where you have to use teamwork to win and i like that.uh tho i got lost finding shop ingame lol (No -score for not being able to find shop :p).and please change that goblin shop,it doesn't suit for a modern map! and the items "Staff of teleportation"? and tomes of agility ect? that doesn't really suit a modern map...
Liked the way you made the game chaotic where its hard to beat the game :)
It could still get alot better,i will give you more ideas soon. :)
14/25


Terrain:

Simple terrain,and some noise outside of the map right?
well due to map size and playable size and the theme.its good enough for a bunker (with that playable and map size :/) but please improve that...

Better now.

7/10


Doodads:

I don't really like how you placed the doodads.doesn't really suit for a modern map...i mean for real,those bookshelves aren't suited for a modern map.also those things around the goblin merchant...you can also put a human as the goblin merchant...or atleast like the other shop there at left..?
+1 for changing that goblin merchant still waiting for doodads change.

Changes made :)

7/10


Bugs:

I didn't find many bugs just that firebug's buff comes up as divine shield.and mine comes up as..statis trap..? lol
Bugs fixed ^^

5/5

SUGGESTIONS
Some of my suggestions (optional):

>Add that if its protected or open source to map description.
>When the game starts show a message and tell them where to buy ammo,show them the shop locations,or fully instruct them with a tutorial or just some pings and comments showing how to play.just so the user doesn't get lost...
>Change the goblin merchant and those medieval doodads for gods sake :/
>Just like shadow fury said you need to add DISBTN version of all icons.its the site map upload rules.for more information please read: Map submission rules.
>oh and there is also a modern bed on the hive you can use..you know..to make it more modern... :p
>i don't really like the tavern there,makes it look medival...it would be really great if you could change that.

-Thx for your review, the first version, i had a system without tavern to chose heros, but when i played it in multiplayer, they were some bugs, so i prefered to put something simple like a tavern even if it doesn't fit with the theme.
-The game isn't that long, 50 min isn't much for me, and you can make upgrades, buys items, skills lvl 20+ etc.. and i don't like maps where you die in like 2 minutes and can't do shit.
-I didn't put much doodads because i thought it doesn't apport anything to the gameplay, i really just want to have a fun game to play, and i don't think it's boring, i tested it with random people on battlenet and they enjoyed it. Maybe you played the map alone.
-(Sorry for my bad english, i m a young French)

@Xanx Most people review & test maps alone due to (waiting for players,bad connection,bad ping,laziness,doesn't like to play multiplayer,more focus on game)
For tarven error you can also put a place where you can put some souls or some hero chooser units to choose hero in a room (move hero chooser to the hero you like,or double click the hero you like something like that...) and make it unable to get to by boundary and some other tricks... or you can put a dialog box asking you for class or a room where when you move to the character to hero you can control him and he comes to life ect. :D
anyways i go to sleep now,as said i will review tomorrow...

Yes, there is a lot of way to chose heros, maybe i'll make something better later.
True, it's hard to find people to test maps even on battlenet nowadays:/

The terrain has been improved, the time has been decreased and the game has been made more modern. Only thing that bothered me is that I cannot know when exactly I will finish my ammo. Something that advises me how much ammo I have left would be really cool.

For now, my rating will be raised from 2/5 to 3.5/5
Well done!
Then I would also like to vote for APPROVAL!

Ok, thanks for your review Orcnet. (for the difficulty, when i played with people on battlenet some said it's too easy and other said it's too hard so i don't know, it really depends with the team you play).
And for the ammos you can buy packs of ammos in shops, but i think you mean, you want to not click on the item to reload and have an auto-reload with no message, maybe it would be better for players i don't know, i ll think on it.

This map is one of my favorites with terran base defense there is some way to make it easier is simply very difficult and to put more turrets, to be able to buy upgrades to buy item globally, to have soldiers to repair, etc.
I would like to see an easier difucultad and some improvement that balances the map.
Even so 4/5 because it seems a good simple and concise map to play with people and have a good time!
