Based on Running Man by Enrique Orduno. For those of you who have never played Running Man, The Hunter must kill the Runner in a certain amount of time. This is a bigger map and includes alot more triggers. The three players are The Scouts(Player 4), The Running Man(Player 1), and The Hunter(Player 3). DON\'T look at the map before you play, it won\'t be nearly as fun.
Playability: It's a fun map with plenty of room to run around and lots of good hiding spots and traps. I had fun playing this with my friend.
Balance: This map is fairly well balanced, and the scouts still do their job even if its a computer.
Creativity: Even though its based on another scenario the area is completely different and very creative.
Map Design: A pretty good looking map with enough eye-candy.
Story/Instructions: Not much of a story and few instructions but it didn't really need too much.

Very fun to play as the running man/hunter, especially trying to find the well hidden hiding spots and traps; it was not so much fun asthe scout, but since computers do that job fine, I wont mark you down for that.
Next to playability, balance is the strongest aspect of this map. All three sides have a challenging job to pull off; i have played games where the hunter wins in the first minutes, and games where the running man escapes without even being seen.
Although the idea is based entirely on an already made map, this one uses new ideas, such as the scout and the stealth spies. For this, creativity scores a 3.
Map Design: 4
For the most part i liked the map design, you used good terrain mixing and city structures for the most part. The only part i didnt like was the somewhat bleak SW island, and the low amounts of elevation.
For some people, this could be thought of as a good thing, but there are no hints about where to find secret hiding spots or helpers, which annoyed me. Also, there was no background information, but i suppose none was really neede for this map.
Fun map, great twist on an old idea.
Also - if you want to play with four players, i have found it possibly to play as the town; locking/unlocking gates, and dumping the ferry whenever or wherever you want.
