Can be played laid back. It takes just one blaster to defend your initial position, but a few more to finish the map. Use of some storage is recommended.

Title:
Nice Job 1: The Hydraulic Engineer
Difficulty:
Hard
Creeper type:
Land only
Remarks:
Can be played laid back. It takes just one blaster to defend your initial position, but a few more to finish the map. Use of some storage is recommended.
Description:
26% of The Netherlands (also known as Holland or the low lands) is located below sea level. Windmills were used to create land out of sea. As the highest 'mountain' is only 322 meters, flooding is a constant threat to this flat country protected by dunes and dykes.

Today you are an hydraulic engineer, safely operating from Germany. On the map you'll see Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht (the four largest cities) and some smaller towns.

Your job: save the people in the southern province called Zealand. During the flood in 1953 this went terribly wrong. After that activate all windmills and help out the friendly Dutch population. When done, please pick up the message from our Queen.

Note: by law new nuclear reactors are not allowed in The Netherlands, but you can use the only one we have and those in Germany and Belgium.

fun map, very close with energy at times for me, and i screwed up the first time, didn't get the survivor in time, man i can't imagine how some of these scores are obtained, probably just utilizing the drones better than i do.

Well, that took me too long!

I had not read the comments,and was convinced the wayy to beat this was to start from the bottom left,. and work my way up. It just seemed easier to wade into the Creep down there, than up in the quagmire of walls at the top. After several false starts where I had to pull back,. I finally made it nearly to the rune, but energy starvation took the wind out of my sails and I had to recall all the blasters again, and lose all the ground. That's when I finally tried from the top.

Thus a very long time...

Only when you would count the parts of The Netherlands that still contain water I guess....

It's laid back in the sense that defending yourself isn't hard. Finishing the map is a lot harder, due to the energy constraints.

It took me forever, but I finally got it after the Creeper got uncapped 4-5 times. . .  :D

fun map KEES

To fight back the Creeper all you need is. . . What? Energy.
My maps CW1 are located here try out my MIS series.
