    Status : Review
    Condition : Good
    Review : 1

    Note : Good and interesting map, just like another Are You A Retard map with harder concept. It even remind me of my map Are You A Perfect Idiot and Are You Intelligent. Is not like many people often create such a map anymore.

    Such a map concept is to create frustration among the user itself and yet at the same time it gives fun and joy to the user. In which this map certainly prove it does very well, even a veteran player of such a map like me are facing a few difficulty to get through several stage.

    Terrain doesn't look good, but it doesn't matter since in such a map. Terrain play a major factor in providing clue to user and not for exhibition.

    However, the challenge number 20 seems to have text error. I get close to the signboard and it doesn't show any message.

    Apart from that, there is a few trap seems to be bugged. If you want me to approve this map, send me a unprotected version so I can browse through it.

    I certainly recommend this map to anybody who're fans of Are You A Retard map, if you like those map. This map certainly for you. For those who failed to survive through some challenge, I suggest you to goes back to the previous challenge section because you might be missing something which you would never expect it.

    Resources are currently set to review status and rating is 3/5. Rating would change to 4/5 if I could make a further research over it. If the author doesn't send me a unprotected version for further inspection of bugs and error after 1 months of this notification, I have no choice but to reject it.

    Add On : I have review the entire triggering, some triggering could be improve by reducing the coding to increase the efficiency.

    Approve and rating is 4/5.

    The map might not be fully tested, if any user of the map found bug/error or anything else. Feel free to contact Alexis Septimus by clicking this [​IMG]Visitor Message.

    Map is very cool. I beat the map with some people. We had 2 skips left ;)

    But i found a bug maybe you have fixed it already.I played the first version:

    - Some idiots destroyed the footman and the rifleman toy so we can´t put them all in the.... We had to skipp the level :)

    And i am not sure if you wrote the word of the rifleman toy rightly.

    The end of the map is: lol

    I played it 2cond and found some bugs:
    - I couldn´t kick player yellow from the whole game. I can kick his character but than he is an observer and can f.ex. the word -skip!!!
    - The cinematic with the flying goblin ship is bugged. Some player didn´t join the ship and so they can´t fly to the next island. And there was no knife so they can´t kill theirselves!

    I just uploaded version 1.4 - It should be fixed by now

    The end is ok. But i mean you thought so hard and than ...
    I think you should create 2 endings.
    First ending if you use no skip or 1 skip than you see a new cinematic.-
    Second ending if you use more than 1 skip than you see the cinematic you use at the moment.

    And maybe you can add more levels? Maybe you can add Pro levels if you survive the all levels with no or 1 skip than a teleporter appear and if the player want they can do them.

    It was very cool but well i think LIKE you cause i found all things with a lot of ease BUT the key thing (i destroyed the keys and then i skipped it ^^). For example, the rabbit password, i found it in 10 sec :p but i know it's hard for many.
    I played alone and it was very fun ! I enjoyed the end, finding the pearl was very hard, and the hat too but i tried my last solution ^^
    This was too short !
    But yes you should add secrets, like 2 endings, some funny things (doing something with the wolf other than ..., controling one player during 10 sec with an hidden item...) and add more levels !
    This was great ! 5/5

    Thank you all for kind reviews
    I have been asked to make Impossible Map 2 several times, I am not really planning to do so, but who knows what will future bring :]
    At first, I was planning to make two endings, guess I am too lazy, heh...
    Yea, rabbits :D My friend was stuck at that place for 46 minutes ^^
    About secrets, there are actually some hidden Skips among the map, if you feel like having a little challenge, you may try to find all 3 of them (well, one of them is multyplayer-only, so try to find two at least^^)

    I am very glad you liked it

    OMG, Im unable to take what should I do. I passed first level with that leaver (that was easy), but I was unable to beat even the sheep. I tried to send it to the water and let it drown, but with no effect. I also tried to send it to some flowers, hoping it will eat that, but it also wasnt the right. So, I hoped that big shell will eat that sheep and also nothing happened.

    With zombies, I hoped they will die of if I will touch them enough times, but it also doesnt seems to work.

    With that seciond lever I have absolutely no idea what to do and about that key, it seems all keys are wrong and nowher is another key to be found. What a hell.

    I know that, its truly impossible map and all of you who talk about great ending havent even seen that and you just trying to look like you beaten it.

    All right, now I go die by frustration...

    This map remind me a lot of my other work and Are You A Retard map.

    To Alvatar : I give you the clue about zombie section.

    Spoiler
    1 of the zombie have the name I am vegetarian.


    Currently I am stuck at challenge number 20, when I type **** based on the rabbit word. Nothing seems to be happen and the signboard at the section doesn't indicate if I should find, search or kill it which I somehow suspect it was bug. The same goes to 1 trap which I skip as well. I would have to view the triggering setup to see if it been set at the right way.

    And here is another useful tips from me.

    There is a section where there is a 3 lever, if you do it correctly. You would get a skip.
