Ouch!
WTH is up with the low ratings?
Hunker down in the bottom left, build power and defense/defence, and attack.
Get that Forge going first thing and the Totem will light your fire.
Great game!
10/10

i can see people not thinking the totem is that powerful and trying to setup a defense before building forge, so they get overwhelmed

Oh sure...and I was one of them.
 :)

I tried several things before just mashing all three CN's on the bottom-left border and building power as fast as I could.
I'll post a screen grab tomorrow or the next day.
I'll also have to play it again after D0m posts a 5-6 minute time.

Yeah, I did that too, but managed to build defenses without the forge. Once you get the forge going it's just happy goals of joy day.

Great job on the map, Martin! Very fun!

I had to do this map again to see what a difference it would make to build the forge early. Big difference.

I'd say sub-6 minute times would be very doable. Let's see what Dom pulls out of his bag o' tricks.

Thanks for the map!  ;D ;D


You disagree with this sentence, don't you?

This is a very nice map,
simple yet... invigorating.


The mapmaker should be reminded though that English is a subtle, complex language, and that the phrase "very easy" and "Oh My God We Gonna Die, We Gonna Die!!" are not *quite* identical in meaning.

Compared to pulling a splinter out from under your toenail while wearing boxing gloves... yeah, this is totally very easy!  ;D ;D

JH - Thanks for the reminder that I have to give it another go.
Love the boxing gloves analogy.
