Description Something a bit different. Time is a huge factor here... get to the exit before the drone does. Watch the lines at the bottom to see the drone getting closer and closer...

Completion is pretty fun, but trying for all-gold is where the real excitement is. Enjoy.

"Alexander" is Sweep at his best. Timers in maps have been around forever (think trilogy) but Alexander was the first of its kind. The clever use of the antennas of the drones as a time bar is sheer brilliance. The map itself has limited threats but the tension created by the drones makes it a great play. The mine and gold placement is superb adding to the fun. — Evil_Bob

Sweep at his best.

Reminds me of Jaws.


RE: Wellsj...
Well, it's perfect for some people, and not for others. Fair enough if you'd like it earlier... feel free to change it when you play it.
RE: Mystery Power
You're a wang.

I'll leave it at that.

Great concept. If you're too slow, you're doomed. Excellent map, man.


Is amazingly brilliant. I have been trying to include the anteanna think for a long time ( I did in this map actualy But I never thought of using it as a timer. Even if I did i couldn't have pulled it off as well as you did. 5/5 and faved (It prabably is already on bitesize numa but I am gonna check).


nice map! i think the drone shoulda hit you earlier

Surprisingly fun.

That actually felt quite tense. Cool take on the drone race, sweep.

Fair enough.

I do know what you mean... but, it kinda came out that way, and whilst at first I sorta grimaced, I've come to really like the tileset.


I agree with turtle. Generally I prefer it when maps either stick to a tile pattern or vary it completely, not in between. That's just me though.

What's wrong with the tileset? I know it doesn't stick to the same style all over, but it's pretty freeform and I actually think it's kinda cool.

Great concept



I love it, i mean really, but the tileset really bugs me...



And fun!
imma give you a 5/5 for this, ive never seen a good jumper for a few days on NUMA like this.

Faster all-gold...

You asked for it, bub.
Demo Data

Really cool

I love the fin effect. And the Arcade Fire are amazing.
Fav'd -

Pretty fast.

But you should try and beat my all-gold time. All-gold is t3h fun0rz.

Speed demo...

Easily beaten, though.

This time is definitely beatable, have a go.
