– Authors Map Description –

< Commander: Murkwood Station is threatened. It was not designed with military considerations, has too many ways to access the cores and an awkward floor plan to set up an efficient defence. Compounded by the fact that the Aliens thrive in the heat and dense, moist atmosphere; they will prove difficult to exterminate. >

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

– this map has multiple path opportunities and should provide some
good fun while maintaining a decent challenge

– it has a command shuttle option, for some extra missile platforms …..
that can help out around the cores

– and for those players who like a challenge ….. the challenge
missions are just that, if too hard then try at a lower level
( it has been beaten on Elite, all cores saved )

– i would like to thank walsingham for his encouragement and help testing,
and P4P1PRO for his help tuning the difficulty of the <story LB challenge>
which is going to please those that like an truly Elite challenge

– all missions have beaten @ the Elite setting
– all cores saved and gold medal achieved

– if you find anything that doesn’t work, please let me know …..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Missions:

All modes have a Command Shuttle option that provides additional
tower placements

< story >
– 30 waves – easiest mission
– a practice mode – score not saved to leaderboard

< story LB >
– 35 larger waves of mixed aliens

< story LB challenge >
– 40 waves of strong and healthy aliens
– Hardest mission – an Elite challenge

< super grinder >
– 101 waves of mixed aliens

< super G challenge >
– 90 very large waves of mixed aliens

< super X grinder >
– 140 large waves of assorted aliens

enjoy!

Nice map, but I have a question ... Do you pack more and more health into mobs? On this map there is probably x 10, it's scary to download newer ones, probably there is x 20 hehe. The balance is starting to fail, I think. Thanks for the maps.

Do you have to know this one and only path from among several paths to win the gold medal at the LB challenge? does each path allow you to win a gold medal? Maybe some hint from you which path to choose and how to do it on this particular Murkwood map. Thank you.

I remember the LB challenge being particularly hard – often the hardest of the provided modes. Usually I don’t start with it but try to get comfortable with the map until I am confident about my tower setup and go for the challenge, but frankly I do not always succeed or get gold every time either. That is perfectly fine … I may want to revisit later.

A rule of thumb might be: The harder the mode the fewer the paths that lead you to an optimal outcome, but I have yet to encounter a razcle map where just one single path is the key.
Though the creator himself understandably cannot provide solutions especially within the open comment section, you can always reach out for other players or try to contact us via private chat (steam) about specific issues.

WOW! is right.
A perfect map. It has a beautiful atmosphere and visuals. It’s design is well thought out, very challenging and everything i tried or wanted to do did not quite fit.

Thank you 🙂 I always look forward to the next razcle map.

How do you keep coming up with new and different ideas for your maps?
