This map was featured on 2010-10-13

freya is a prime example of the golden age of NUMA. Coming from a time when inspiration ran riot, these kinds of maps were churned out by some of the greatest map-makers of all time. Simplicity and elegance reach their heights in freya. Nothing is unimportant in this map. Every single tile is expertly placed, the mines direct but don’t hamper your movement, and the gold is nestled in between it all. And, as a final touch, the laser drones coerce you forward. This map does everything right without seeming to try. It is a perfect piece of nostalgia. — Orion_

Great effing review

For some reason I hadn't faved this map yet. Fixed.

now heres the thing about this map. you just see the map from the left, where the ninja is and you just have to appreciate the style of it. this map is quite a good one. specially the right hand laser drone, which covers 2 sides at the same time.

while also i just cant stop from likeing ethel's comment about 16 coments below mine. {on't see what the big deal is}one.

anyway this is a very good map.

deserves: 4.7/5

That was this level

Submitted to the Sublime contest (and edited by the devs), I believe, but I might be mistaken.

I have another level on the DS version too, here:

Noticed that

this is strikingly similar to a level on the ds version of N+ (there are no lasers)

Thanks Orion_

This has always been one of my favourites.

Freya's art can be viewed here:


I still think

this makes a great episodic map. There's plenty of space for highscoring and shortcuts.

I also remember Freya as atob's girlfriend. She's a good illustrator.

funny map

at the top of the map, made of 1 and 2 tiles. It's awesome. Props due.
It might have been "revolutionary" (i doubt that) back in its' day, but by todays standard this is flat out average. There are tons of better maps out there today, even in Atobs archive. Also the review was rather cliche, i think he just paraphrased what like 8 other people have said in their reviews.
It is kind of weird to see this map for the first time in 5 years. Nostalgic indeed.
