- Authors Map Description -

< Commander : Attacks are from the North, the East, the West
and South. The Aliens are trying to collect the Cores from the
Crystal Compass, an asteroid in the stable zone. >
< It is another of those pointless installations (from a military
perspective), more a piece art than serving any useful function.
In the asteroids present orbit, North on the compass simply
denotes something that is blatantly obvious - the Sun's location.
It requires the high energy Cores, because it needs to constantly
adjust itself to keep the asteroid's solar orientation accurate.
The other compass points are useless in space, as a compass is
inherently a 2D device. >
< Commander : Do your best to keep the Cores safe. >


- my last couple maps have been focused on fun and were relatively
easy, this one is much more challenging ....

- there are missions that you will find easier, no cores lost
and there is a mission that you will be hard pressed to keep any
cores at all

- the 'story', 'story leaderboard' and the 'super grinder' have
spawn points to the N,E and W - and Aliens will exit to the South
- the 'story LB challenge' and the 'super X grinder' have spawns
and exits at all four compass points, they will test your choices
and your management skills

- the 'story LB challenge' mission is the hardest and has a wicked
last wave that will most likely see some cores lost, don't let them
all leave, keep as many as you can --- if you can keep all the cores
intact on this mission, please brag about it in the comments below
( it can be done )

- thanks to Everglades and TNTFTB for helping me get this ready
and to AceOpticsAU for proving the story LB challenge is do-able

everything seems to work fine .......
- if you find anything that i might have missed, please let me know
in the comments, so i can try to fix it


< story > :
......... 30 waves - easiest mission - scores not saved to leaderboard
......... 3 entrances from N,E and W - exit in S
< story leaderboard > :
......... 40 waves - 3 entrances from N,E and W - exit to S
< story LB challenge > :
......... 40 waves - 4 entrances/exits in the N, E, W and S
< super grinder > :
......... 101 waves - 3 entrances from N,E and W - exit to S
< super G challenge > :
......... 140 large waves - 4 entrances/exits in the N, E, W and S

The story LB challenge is a tough one, i can beat it on Hard, but not yet on Elite. The other missions were fun and much easier to keep the cores.
Another map i am glad i downloaded. Awesome!
Thanks 🙂

I am here to brag about the story_LB_challenge done!
After idk how many backspaces lol!! Awesome challenge!

And great map, because when i first launched it, I went like OMG not again, how i hate these symmetrical maps! (because I obviously cannot build and then update just one badass route)
Your map managed to convince me that not all of them are just lazy design. (coming from someone who is too lazy to EVER made any map for DG…)
Thanks for good fun

for anyone who cares about evidence, hope this gdrive link will work:
