This is my third map and no, it's not a RPG. This is a simple race where opponents need to rush through obstacles (some more difficult than others) to reach the finish line. Only one player will win!
Most obstacles you pass on your own, but for some obstacles, players can interact with each others (i.e. attack each others and try to make the others loose time).
Three time in the game instructions pop out so make sure you read them. Read them CAREFULLY! I'm still amazed at how some players say they read the instructions but then have no clue as to what to do! This is especially true for the deer game. Most player step on their flag color when it is clearly stated that the DEER (not the player) should be the one to step on your flag color.
Anyway I hope you guys will enjoy this race, it should be done in a good atmosphere, as players can never die, thus diminishing the whining level...
UPDATE 28/09/2008: The game was working fine but I fixed a few things that I thought were necessary, so I updated the downloadable map, called "fix1". Here are the modifications:
1) More wood tribute at wonder area to avoid the problem of not having enough wood to build a lumber camp if you build a mining camp first by mistake (you'd be stuck in this situation).
2) Added gaia rocks after the gold mining area to avoid having opponents build something to block your exit.
3) Enlarge one of the last portion of the mine field to make it a bit easier.
Let me know if you think anything else should be fixed.
UPDATE 22/10/2008: Updated the map again, now the file is called "Pandemonium's Rat Race (fix)". The only modification is the correction of a small mistake. With last map I forgot to delete a blue unit I used just to see if something was working... I just forgot to remove that unit before saving. It's done now. Sorry about that.
