"Tropical DeathWish" is a 1v1 Melee map.

"Looks good and no much problem with the creep difficulty and placing, neutral buildings are fairly placed but I don't think this map deserves a goblin laboratory, its a one-way maze look like so diving in with a zeppelin is a bit exaggerated how about replace them with mercenary camps it would suffice."

"Terrain looks fine as well no much problems but the middle part needs some cleaning maintenance the destroyed gate makes it only look dirty."

"To my observations, map is useful with creep difficulty in good shape and placed player bases away to each."

For fun, I reviewed your map, here's my thoughts:
the good (requirements met):
-enough resources, space, and creeps for a solid melee game
-terrain looks fine (but I am not very good at assessing this sort of thing - I defer you to others for better feedback on the terrain).

the bad: (things that render your map 'broken')
-creeps guarding tavern.

the quirks: (uncommon things that are still okay)
-a lot of pathing bottlenecks. This map screams for an air strategy, but there are observatories as well
-you have orange creep drops at 'level 1' items and green creep drops at 'level 3' items. But since the map is symmetric, this is fine.
-natural expansions are close to enemy starting locations, and (as it happens) 'enemy' observatories. Though the overall layout of the map seems to demand an air strategy, this feature serves as encouragement for each player to at least purchase a zeppelin.

suggestions (my own personal ideas)
-create some kind of 'entrance' to the starting locations. Right now the bases are a little too open, which eliminates the possibility of some early defense strategies.
-make the terrain behind and around each natural expansion unbuildable (with adequate area for a town hall), so that defending against a zeppelin isn't completely trivialized by amassing towers. Room for a couple of towers is fine.

At least remove the bad and I would vote for approval.

Please change the name of the file it's called Kewl.w3m

Also just a review I had time to do (Don't take it to negatively this is healthy criticism)

Good
- You use decent tile patterns, but could be better
- The overall terrain structure is cool
- Expansions are alright....

Bad
- You to cram to much into small spaces resulting in an ugly look
- Symmetry is not the greatest (look at the top left hand corner and the bottom right hand corner, or look at the centre path at how different the right hand is to the left)
- Doodads are placed in large amounts and irregularly
- Creeps are guarding the tavern
- No use of the raise and lower tool

Fixes:
- I don't know why but before the expansion you have a skull on a stick and a pile of bones. This is not pleasing to the eye so remove it, since all it is making is a ugly path blocker.
- Please move the murloc huts closer to the trees so they are not as out in the open.
- Add dirt around the edges of NPC buildings (taverns, Goblin laboratory) since it is to add realism
- There are lots of doodads placed in the wrong areas and I'm not talking about mushrooms, I mean like logs in the open (That should be next to trees), and statues infront of creep camps such as the one guarding Golbin Laboratory on the bottom right hand of the map.

Suggestion for next map:
- Try to keep in mind symmetry (This includes trees) and size of areas, since it is a key part of melee and can cause people to dislike it if not executed properly.
- If you are adding anything specific to change some minor aspect of gameplay, let the community know in the description

I would give this a 2/5, but I will not, since you are going to update it (I hope)
