Maps of the Week #19

Hello everyone!

Yes, this is a bit late, but we have quite a few FFA and Team maps this week, and we hope you like them!

And now, let’s go to the maps!

Winners

Title: DM Instagib Arena

Creator: Drengskarp

Type: FFA / Team

A small arena that promises a lot of fun! Like a sort of platform or temple in the sky, this map might be small, but that means that it packs a lot of fun! Avoid the lava or falling to your death while jumping around different platforms and killing your enemies!

Title: The Pit

Creator: Smokey_Ronin

Type: FFA

This map might look quite simple, but it’s actually kind of complex, with a lot of different levels or platforms, and it’s also quite big. Plus, it has a big pool of acid at the bottom of the map, so you have to be careful or you’ll fall to your death! It’s probably a map best enjoyed with a lot of people, but either way, you’ll have fun exploring it.

Title: Derelict

Creator: Ashygdra

Type: FFA / Team

This map is a little bit of a maze, but it’s really well designed! With underground areas, platforms that you can access with jump-pads, and a nice variety of weapons, you’ll have to chase your enemies through the different areas that this map provides. A fun one to try with friends.

Title: MARIO LEVEL 3

Creator: BloodTag6

Type: Co-Op

Good old Mario! The “MARIO LEVEL” maps is a series of maps that try to recreate the look and feel of Mario levels, but with a Gunscape turn! Some of these maps certainly brought us back to when we played classic Mario levels. Plus, like any platformer, these maps are quite challenging, and who knows, there might be a boss waiting for you at the end.

Title: Corrupted Fort

Creator: Wiggsmiser

Type: FFA

Castle maps are a classic in Gunscape and this is one of those maps! Like any good castle, the map itself is a sort of labyrinth, and getting to the central arena might take a few attempts (and hint: also keys), but while you find your way, you can also get items. The main area also has a pit of lava, which makes everything more challenging!

Enjoying any other maps? Just finished your own and want us to check it out? Leave us a comment below with the name of it and we’ll test it! And if you think that we missed any good map, let us know too!

Game Tip - We explain our new content!

Hello, everyone! There’s no FishPlay this week due to technical difficulties (I had to format my computer, guys), but we come bringing a game tip!

About a month ago, we added a few new blocks and items and we’ve seen that some of you are already using them for your maps, but we’d love to see more of these! So we’re going to explain you what they do and how to use them.

We also have a gamelog with all of this information in-game. Just go to Options > Changelog to find it!

 

Blocks

Due to popular demand, we added a few coloured blocks. You can now build with plain Black, White, Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow.

Powerups

Gunscape now has powerups! This is a suggestion we got a lot and we’re happy to deliver!

(View in build mode)

(View in game)

a) Quad Damage

As its name says, you do quadruple damage to your enemies during a short period of time. Pretty useful when you have a powerful weapon and you’re facing a boss! ;)

b) Invulnerability

You can’t get hit for a few seconds. Good to set up near bosses or on FFA/Team maps.

c) Small Armour

You gain a small percentage of armour on top of your base health.

d) Large Armour

You gain a big percentage of armour on top of your base health.

 

Jump-pads

Besides our normal jump-pad (green), we now have jump-pads for low and high strength jump. Use the blue jump-pad for low strength jumps and the red one for high strength jumps.

You can find these in the Tremor pack.

 

Building Blocks

We have added new types of blocks that you can build your maps with. Some of them, you can find them in most of our themes. Here’s the list with the themes where you can find them at:

Stage Blocks (Final Fortress, Siegecraft, Too Rockin’)

Platform Blocks (Final Fortress, Siegecraft, Too Rockin’)

Corrugated Roof (Final Fortress)

Vertical Pipe (Bathyscape)

Railing (Bathyscape)

Corner Railings (Bathyscape)

Rusted Windows (Relay)

Bullet Proof (Relay)

Broken Windows (Relay)

Sloped Girders (Relay)

Maps of the Week #18

Hello everyone!

We hope that you’re enjoying our featured maps, and also our Fish Play videos about them! It might sound repetitive, but we’re really proud of the different maps we’ve tested so far. Keep it up, guys!

And now… the maps!

Winners

Title: Earnest Remembrance part 1: ESCAPE

Creator: AntiTheViris

Type: Co-Op

This is the first part of what we hope it’s going to become a great campaign! The design of the map is quite intricate, but what really got our attention was the story. As you progress, you get bits and pieces of the story and it looks like there’s a big story in this map! We can’t wait to play the rest of it

Title: Islands

Creator: Sabertooth

Type: FFA / Team

A medium-sized and open map that represents a series of islands in the middle of the sea! With different and powerful weapons, this map is quite fun and the creator has paid a lot of attention to detail! We can’t wait to play it in a community playdate.

Title: QuakeScape

Creator: FletbedZA

Type: Co-Op

This is one of those maps with a lot of puzzles to solve, hidden treasures and paths, and quite a bit to discover! But don’t think it’s just that. There’s also a lot of action and you’ll find that even good weapons might not be enough to fight all of the enemies!

Title: Explosive Dodgeball

Creator: JoeBadassGamer95

Type: Team

This is a dodgeball map with an explosive turn! The creator rules say it’s a 4v4 match, first team to get to 25 kills wins, and no friendly fire! Look and feel wise, this is a simple map, but we loved the mechanics of the game! We love when the community creates different types of games within Gunscape, and this is one of those maps!
