UDP - Escape the Forest is a multiplayer U Da Prey scenario by KakiharaBeast. The idea of the scenario is that you have 7 players who are the Prey and 1 hunter. The Hunter has an unbelievably large army of over 300 unit covering the entire map, whilst the prey start with 2 super units which constantly power-up, and have the option to buy more units for gold they earn for gaining kills. The prey's objective is to survive for 3 hours, whilst the hunter's objective is to kill all of the prey.
Escape the forest is a very well made and entertaining UDP. It brings hours of joy and entertainment as the preys taunt the hunter with non-stop movement, and the hunter tactically ties to surround the prey with their mass numbers of soldiers. This UDP is like many others that I have played but still adds its own unique twists and creative concepts. I had a great time playing this scenario and would highly recommend it to any other UDP fans. The scenario itself is very well designed and I didn't encounter and bugs with the extensive trigger work. Also, with over 3000 units on the map, I never really encountered any lag with this scenario.
For a game which involved one team with 3 starting units and another with over 3000, the scenario is very balanced, and thats the idea of the scenario. To have one team survive wave after wave of hunter attacks. The Prey's units gain power-ups for each kill they make, and can find a number of ice pads throughout the map which gift them extra power-ups the longer they stay on them. This allows for a perfect balance, and even though the hunter greatly outnumbers the Prey, the Prey can kill the hunters units in one hit. The prey are also gifted additional rewards such as extra units and hp/ap upgrades as well. Both the Prey and the Hunter have shops which they can use to weaken their opponents. The prey can buy additional units and ships with their gold, whilst the hunter can use his gold to close the prey's shops and buy technologies such as spies. However, in comparison to other UDPs I have played I found this one slightly easier as a Prey. You start off with an additional unit than traditional UDPs and the Hunters units seem to bit a little more spread out and his base it not so heavily fortified.
UDP scenarios are an incredibly creative concept that require alot of work and many many triggers. This scenario has clearly taken inspiration from many others that have come before it but there are still many original concepts. The clever bonuses that can be found lying around are very clever, and require some technical trigger work to activate. The prey's unit rewards are great and nice surprises for the prey as they work hard to keep building their army in order to survive the hunter.
Map Design: 4
Despite it's theme - Escape the Forest, the map design of this scenario doesn't really reflect the theme too much. While the map is designed to look like a forest, and there is plenty of woodland around, I feel that it is far too open to actually represent this theme of escaping a forest.
The design is quite good though, and you can tell a great deal of effort has gone into it, with a suitably designed base for the hunter and interconnecting roads around the map to give the prey an idea of his whereabout. There isn't much in terms of terrain mixing or eye-candy but that's not really the point of the scenario. There's just too much going on for you to notice it anyway, and it'll more than likely get in the way of the action.
As with most multiplayer scenario, there's not much of a story to this scenario. It's all about the gameplay rather than the story, but the instructions are splendid. The scenario follows a theme which entails the hunter searching the forest for his prey whilst the prey are trying to escape and survive. The instructions on how the play the game and survive are clear and well-written and there is a helpful hints section to give the players details and some of the random events and gameplay aspects of this particular scenario. Overall, it's a very easy game for a newcomer to play.
Overall I nice UDP made that is worth checking out.
