"The Jungle Thingy" is a non-playable scenario that sets out to depict a tropical island having been inexplicably half-frozen, but doesn't quite achieve what is expected of it.
The concept is pretty unique, but the execution is unfortunately nothing to be excited about. The map is not detailed at all and probably didn't take more than 15 minutes to create. The scenario begins in a patch of land on the far-east corner of the map, with no connection to the island whatsoever, and the player gets a small army and some villagers which serve no purpose. You can't even explore the map properly since they are away from the island which is the highlight of the map.
After marco-poloing, the sight of the island was pretty disappointing. I know a half-frozen tropical island is very unrealistic by nature, but I could've seen the use of such a map in a fantasy setting, one that has been corrupted by evil powers, let's say. However, the island is nothing but patches of forest, with no terrain mixing and no detailing. Just thick patches of snow pine and jungle trees, broken down sometimes by other huge patches of leaves, grass and snow grass. No highlights and nothing to get at least moderately excited about. The most detail we get is an area filled with cliffs, with some forage bushes and other gaia objects, but which doesn't look good at all. Other bushes and deers are scattered throughout the map in a random manner. The way in which the island is "frozen" seems to be just as random and I don't see too much thought put into any of it.
I know this is a harsh review, but quite frankly, you have put way to little effort into it to expect something else. It's a small non-playable map, but that doesn't justify the lack of interest shown for it by the designer himself. You should download some high rated non-playable maps of the same format and see how much effort people have put into them, and how useful such maps can really be to other designers, whether they are trying to learn something new or find a suitable template for their scenario. Please put some more effort into your next submission, I'm sure you can do much better than this.
In closing, this is not a recommended download. The idea for it is intriguing but sadly the execution isn't.
