SINGLE PLAYER!
MURLOCS!

I just have to try this. *crosses fingers* be good please.

Will update this post with a review.

edit: damn it, I had high hopes for this one.

Oh well.

There is like 2 minutes of gameplay so it's not enough to do a full review. But I will point out a few things.

1. there are a few spelling mistakes. "murlock" > murloc. There are double space at once place (dialogue) I think I saw something else spelled wrong too but I don't recall it.
2. There are.. an insane amount of logical flaws in this map. Firstly.. the murlocs apparently want this baby alive for whatever reason.. and they sent 2 murlocs?! the baby can talk just after being born. Why would the priest/monk explain what he will do. "I will consume your souls!" he'd likely just cast the spell. Secondly, after claiming that he will devour their souls and call upon the powers of hell, the villagers just watch him like he is reading from a book or something. The murlocs in general are pretty stupid, they got a basic grip on society but otherwise their thoughts are very simple.

I wont complain about specific sections of the map since I'd rate everything but the story concept 1/5.

overall this is a map I could create within an hour, no issues. But I will admit this is better than the first map I ever created, that's for sure. So well done in that aspect, but you really need to work on your stuff more before you upload it here.

So.. 1/5 and I vote for rejection.

Well.The idea is SUPER NEAT.You don't see around many murlocs maps.
I played the camping and i might give a few sugestions to make it better.

Well sinc it is a rpg type of map
One of the murlocs should be the one who is the tank.Rise the hp pool and armour of one of murlocs to make him the tank of the tag team,maybe give him an resistent skin or harden skin ability.
You made the guards as neutral unites,better add them under one banner,it make's it more esthetical.
As the keeper of the key,i would sugest to put a captain with a guard by his side(you know usually the captains are the one's who keep important stuff)
Add a few "chit-chat" for e.x:When you face the new guard he might say something like this "Murlocs? Attack!".The keeper of the key "You want the key?To bad you wont leave long enough to make use of it" overhall it is a really cool idea :) hope you expand it :).

Btw chaosy...Hold on on that sleep spell you'll need it and nice pic :D

Well.. I died on my first try by the demon.. so I just killed him with whosyourdaddy to see the end cinematic.

Kinda funny that that spell cost your entire mana pool.
Did you use the corpses...I knew you would fail it sinc the first try... :D

So you use the sleep spell when you're getting low and then eat.. that's a quite good idea for a boss. No joke. Sadly that wont really improve the gameplay by a lot.

It needs some expanding.But hey look at the bright side is a murloc rpg type of map,we ain't got to many around.If he develops some more it can be a really good map.Also the fact that can be played solo it helps sinc not all have a original copy of the game.

Yes the corpses are essential to eat in order to make it :D
@DD Mikasa
Thanks for tips for improvement, I agree on all of them and will probably add them soon.

@Chaosy
Fair points, thanks for taking time to test and write your review.
