Maps of the Week #29

Hi, everyone!

Sorry about this week’s delay! But we’re here again bringing you our featured maps of the week :)

Winners

Title: ShootScape

Creator: RGAZ

Type: Co-Op

This map is pretty much what the name indicates: shoot and escape. The story says that there’s an evil group, “Evil Corp”, planning a world invasion and it’s your (or your team’s) job to infiltrate their base and stop them. This map is a lot like a maze and it took us quite some time to finish because we kept getting lost! I guess that makes it feel like you’re infiltrating a new place, so that was good! You also get a lot of enemies and only a few weapons, which makes it challenging.

Title: The League [Team Deathmatch]

Creator: BARKLEY22

Type: Team

This map is inspired on Team Fortress 2 and you can actually get to act like a team! Like in some MOBA’s, you’ll get a “role” or job that you have to fulfill. Depending on the role you want or get, you will get different weapons that will help you with that. For example, while testing this, I chose “sniper” because that’s my usual favourite job and I got a place to snipe from and the weapons I needed. There’s something for everyone!

Title: Wolf3D: Episode 1 - Floor 1

Creator: PrimeWeekle

Type: FFA

The description says that this is a remake of Wolfenstein 3D’s first level with a few twists, and it lives up to the expectation! Just like another of our winners, if you like maps that will make you explore around and will probably get you lost, this is your kind of map! It’s kinda easy to beat, but it might take long considering the map is like a maze. We hope that this becomes a campaign with more episodes!

Title: H.M.S CONCHATUMADRE

Creator: SopapiGlobo Dios Superior

Type: FFA

Another ship-like map! Quite an interesting design for a FFA map. We’ve seen a lot more of these maps lately and we like them a lot! It gives players a place with both an arena and rooms where you can get weapons or hide if you prefer to do that. Plus there’s a sort of secret in the middle of the map and it’s quite challenging to get it.

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!

Maps of the Week #28

Hello, everyone!

Just like last week, we have a nice variety of maps this time! From really detailed and original maps to others inspired in other games. We have a map for everyone.

Winners

Title: Operation D357

Creator: Incendiary

Type: Co-Op

This is one of those maps that anyone can tell that was well planned and designed, and also well executed. The idea behind the map is that you have infiltrated into a facility to get a special weapon. This map mixes a lot of our themes, but it makes it work well. The look and feel actually makes you feel like you’re inside some kind of secret facility. It’s a big map and you have to explore a lot to get what you need. If you want a long full experience, this map is for you.

Title: Dr. Mac´s Laboratory

Creator: Mac

Type: Co-Op / FFA

This map combines a lot of our themes into this big “laboratory” with secret areas that you’ll have to discover (hint: use the teleporters). It works really well as a FFA map and even better when there is a lot of people (as I mentioned, it’s quite big, so the more the merrier). All of the areas seem to connect in the middle by an arena where you can fight everyone!

Title: Quake DM17 Remake

Creator: Sur El Celeray

Type: Co-Op / Team

As the name and the description of this map point out, this map is inspired on the Quake DM17 map. It’s made of different platforms that float in the middle of space, and you’ll have to jump around them to get weapons. In some cases, you’ll need the help of some weapons to get to a platform above you (hint: you can double jump with some weapons…). Definitely a good map to try with friends, especially if you’re a Quake fan.

Title: Pokemon Arena

Creator: Tommy3004

Type: Co-Op / Team

With the recent Pokemon Go fever, we’re happy to see that someone decided to make a Pokemon inspired map! As the one before, the map is also a series of platforms floating in mid air. There’s an arena in the middle and four other platforms surrounding it, each with the shape of a pokeball. If you want a nice Pokemon look and feel, this is your map.

Title: Jurassic Park-Final Chapter

Creator: GoldCraft11

Type: Co-Op

The last chapter of a campaign inspired on the Jurassic Park movies! This map makes a great use of our Too Rockin’ theme. It’s quite a small campaign that might not take too long, but it’s still a fun one. As expected, you’ll find a few dinosaurs to fight, and at the end of the campaign, you’ll have to confront a boss, which is a T-Rex that has escaped the park!

Maps of the Week #27

Hello, everyone!

We have all sorts of different maps this week! Not only in gameplay, but also in design and look and feel. We think you’ll enjoy the variety ;)

Winners

Title: Controversial Experiments EP1

Creator: PowerDuDe_DK

Type: Co-Op

Lab maps are a classic type of map in Gunscape, and a classic well done is always a fun map. This is the case for this one! The premise is simple: you are sort of trapped in a lab where experiments went horribly wrong and now you have to find your way out and keep yourself alive! This map is well balanced and the design is quite fun. It’s a bit of a maze and you might find yourself going in circles at some points, but that only makes it more challenging, right?

Title: The Ancient Canyon

Creator: kurpppa0

Type: FFA / Team

An arena type of map in the shape of a square. It reminded us a bit of those gardens in the front of mansions. It fits any type of FFA or Team game mode, which makes it quite interesting. We can’t wait to try it in different game modes! If you and your friends like small arenas where you can’t really hide and your only option is to fight, then you’ll enjoy this one.

Title: The St.Anne

Creator: mckster6

Type: Co-Op

As the name hints, this map is modelled after a ship. It’s a small map, but it’s well designed and it has different rooms that you need to investigate. Some of them have enemies, but others have useful weapons and ammo. We’d love to see this map as a campaign or maybe a bigger version of it, because we think it’d work really well!

Title: Omega

Creator: Mac

Type: FFA / Team

This is a typical futuristic arena, which are always fun! In this map, there are three different levels where you can play, and also a couple of rooms with valuable weapons and ammo. It’s all connected by a rectangular arena in the middle level, where you can fight everyone! Play it in different game modes for a completely different experience.

Title: call of creeper

Creator: berlin_power44

Type: FFA

A map inspired on Minecraft creepers! What we liked about this one is its look, because it has several creeper faces and also a whole creeper in the middle as well! This map is not only good because of the creepers though, as it’s well designed as well. With different platforms and jump-pads, even if the map is a bit small, you’ll have plenty of it to explore.
