Aye, I used a terp the first time then realized it wasn't needed. I rarely play maps through a second time but this one was worth it just for fun!

What makes this map so good?

1) The name brand: Martin Gronsdal - This means iff (if and only if) you are a Mensa member or even close to qualifying, you'll enjoy this map.  ;)
2) The low rating - this means people who don't even know what Mensa is are getting upset because they're still looking for the "ANY" key to continue. So they give it a low rating.  :P
3) There's lots of ORE, lots of TOTEMS, and even lots of... lots of... should I spoil it? No, if you're starting a Martin Map you ought to know what you need to look for.

Either that or you're still using your fingers, toes, and maybe both of your teeth to figure out your IQ.  :D

HA HA!

Seriously, though. If you're struggling with this map... just... hmm... look around? If you're still confused yet even partially literate, just ask a question. Huge helping hands hover hither!  ;)

Thanks for the map!  Three huge grins up! ;D ;D ;D

I enjoyed this version more then the "remake". It has unique gameplay, that had me trying three times in what order to place my infrastructure.

What I didnt like was the "no tricks" title with hidden aether packs. imo the totems' only purpose is hiding these and the map would have been better if you just removed half of the totems.

Nonetheless, this is some short, but nice fun.  It has that tension I like about cw, that when you misstep you needa redo a lot. It definitly cuts out the dragging, slow part where one has build up everything and needs to clear the remaining half of the map. Nice build up with unusual choices for success and if you needa redo, it's fast and fun.

thank you for playing, but I'd rather see spoilers in spoilers, please.

On a desktop computer, it's usually right behind the power plug for the computer so just pull out that big black cable from the back of your computer and you should see it.  ;D
