Description Two Seeker Drones. You Will Hate Them. RCE

Oh, and its the debut of my imaging career too.

GTMs Fractal Sigs []

Oh, and this is now also part of my recent map-pack. Thought it had the right length and aesthetic to fit in, so here it is.

This map was featured on 2008-10-26

The description of Damnnation reads "Two Seeker Drones. You Will Hate Them." And you seriously will.

That is not to say that this map is difficult, but the two drones patrol the lower segment of this deceptively closed map with a steely determination, and will change directions when you least expect it. Very frustrating. Very addictive.

The top section plays like a completely different beast: it is much calmer, and I feel that these two extremes, in this situation, work in perfect harmony. But don't get too complacent, those gaps are still big enough for drones, as well as ninjas... — TheAdster

Congrats for this one GMH!
It's true, I was expecting a feature from you!


37 comments since I posted my AGD, and it still stands. I know it can be done faster.

Nice map

But sadly, Guitar Hero Mat's style never seems to really appeal to me. The gameplay feels uneven, one moment sterile and empty, and the next overly crowded in an awkward environment, depending on whether the drones follow you.

The two flower constructions look quite cool, but the rest of the tileset is just a rather generic cavern, I'm with Palemoon in wishing you had done something with the empty space because it doesn't work.

Despite all this, the drone routes are well worked and overall it's still plenty of fun, so 3.

I dide back walking into the back of a seeker once >_<

Go figure. I dodge all the drones, then die by falling.

My first attempt:

You can find that exact comment on the next page of comments :P


on my first serious try. this map was fun i guess. it would be a five if it wasn't featured, so i'm going to pretend it wasn't.

also, imo, the featuring system is falling apart. maps should have to be about a month old before being eligible for a feature.

Who have probably ended up hating them for the controversy :P

I did not hate them

I only died on the level once, because I didn't know where the ninja was
I said you'd hate them. Was I right? Yes! You've ended up hating them :P

Those drones

I didn't think they were annoying at all

Of course

If a professional player plays this, obviously the seeker drones are controllable and become much less of an issue.
What I meant in the description is they kept going where you didnt want them to go, such as in the top area. I thought that, since in the average run a drone could easily enter the top area, I didnt want to make the gauss too tricky incase it became a seemingly random difficulty spike.

You overestimate your skills as a map maker if you think those drones are annoying.
The start was annoying, the seeker drones were awkward, I am not a fan of that gold placement style, and the gauss felt neutered.

This is pretty awesome advertising for your fractals too ;)
