|Mad mountain is a large
4 player map that has a mountain setting. This map has 3 very different
sections - a snowy section, a lowlands section, and a delta setting with
many little islands. This is a fun map that plays very well, I haven't
found any areas where you are likely to get your units stuck and besides
a few oil resources than have nowhere to build defenses it is a pretty
well put together map. I like the changing terrain on this map as
well which is something I haven't seen in any other maps and although
the oil on this map is very spread out and hard to defend I enjoyed this
map. I think this map is worth a look.
|Micro Valley is a small
two player map in a mountain setting. This map is simple and really
offers no chance for anything ore than a five minute game as there are
only eight oil resources in your starting base and none in the battlefield.
This map has a load of trees and a nice sunken base but really offers little
chance of an interesting game. This map is not worth investing
much time in but if you like rush maps this may be the map for you.
|Mysterious Forrest is
a very small four player map in a mountain map. This map has a lot
of interesting elevation changes and tricky little twists and turns in
the terrain. I like the narrow valleys and tight passages of this
map but the bases seem very uneven. Again I was stuck with the small
base and if you dont know exactly where to build your factory its game
over for you. I like this type of map but feel that it is a little
too tight in the bases and think that it is a little too small even with
|No land to
build is a small four player map in a desert setting. This map has
undulating terrain which leaves very little room to build any structures.
This map has a fair ammount of oil and is almost large enough to play a
good game. I like the idea he was going for and will probably keep
this map in my list but if you are into long build games this map leaves
something to be desired.
|Pyros Desert is a small
four player map in a desert setting. This map is basically a small
flat map with a hill or two here and there. There is a fair amount
of oil spread all around this map. This map doesn't seem to have
any areas where you can get stuck but I did notice that there are a few
areas where your units become confused on what path to take, I don't know
that this is a design issue but it is a game play issue. I would
say that this map is simple and small but might be fun for a quick rush
game or two but that's about it.
|River Canyon is a 4
player map with many elevation changes and absolutely no symmetry.
This is a small map for 4 players and all of the bases start in a totally
different area with one obvious advantage which would be the lower right
hand base. This is a very different and fun map. There is not
a lot of oil on this map and it is way too small for four players but I
still really enjoyed this map. The most interesting thing about this
map is that the terrain is so uneven and still looks good and plays well
with one very frustrating area at the bridge in the lower right hand corner.
In conclusion, not great but very interesting.
