Greetings!

Try out this mayhem-filled single-player defense map! Play as one of the five major dragonflights of Azeroth, fighting to prevent over-curious gnomes from flying their ships into a dangerous rip in the Twisting Nether! If the void grows unstable, it could blow open and destroy all creation! The gnomes must be stopped at any cost!

As your dragon slays gnomes, it levels up and the gnomes get tougher, faster, crazier and more cunning! See how long you can last against their terrible midget-sized onslaught!

Download, try it out, and post your final score, and/or what dragon you used and what level you got to!

See the map release thread here.
Old testing threads here and here.

EDIT (11-11-2010): Fixed the three salient bugs that were pointed out in this thread (item: debug, unlock codes stranding selection dragons, Will o Wisp effect art misplaced) and re-uploaded map. Downloads prior to this from all threads: 76+.

Shit. You're STILL making maps? I think this actually sounds mighty interesting to me.

Ha hah! I was, up until the day before SC2 came out! This one was kinda my girlfriend-at-the-time's idea.

EDIT: I should clarify; she gave me the idea that laser-breathing dragons would be AWESOME. I think she thought the map was a little nutters. Maybe this is why we're no longer together?...

You know, this was actually pretty fun. I had a weird bug where all the textures were gone and every model was just plain white, but I attribute that to OS X.

My one question is why my black hole only started with 15% stability....

You know, I went back and forth on that a lot. 15 "lives" was the right amount, and I really liked using percent, so I could either start at 100% and go down by 6.67% per leak, which seemed like it would be really confusing, or I could start at 15% and just go by 1% per leak. That was the clearer choice in terms of simplicity for the player.

Yeah, that's what I figured you had done, but until a unit leaked into the hole I had no idea that my hole hadn't randomly lost 85% stability for no reason.

Maybe if you used some sort of Multibars thing to show the stability in the multiboard, losing 6.67% each time wouldn't be as strange.

On the flip side, you could alter your story to say something about how you are intervening as a last ditch attempt to stop the gnomes before the hole dies, and that's why it only has 15%.

It's only 15% for you, Pyro. I wrote that into the game. Everyone else has 100%.


That's a good idea; next time I release an update I'll modify the explanation to make it clear why it's already unstable.

Yes, I live even if I did go on a two-month hermit spree.

Now I have to go on a two-week catch-up-with-work spree. *sighs*

This game is fun. And gets slightly insane after a while. :P The best method is to kill the copters first, and use the left button to drag-select them, right?

EDIT: New score, lol. Dragon whelp army FTW. Are there any more unlockable dragons?

Well, it can't get much more awesome than dragons+lasers (flying bears+lasers aside).

I love the selection screen, I could watch those dragons fly in and out all day long.

Dunno if it's intentional, but those sparkling lights from the Fae Dragon appear on top of the void and not on the area you targeted.
What's up with those "item:" messages btw?

EDIT: If you type in w****** while a dragon is flying in/out it will show up ingame, you can't control the second dragon though. =(

My record remains unbeaten. :P

It would be nice to know in what direction I should go in order to get another unlockable dragon. :P Because I'm stumped. As far as I can see, it's not hatching a lot of dragons and I guess it's not collecting a lot items either. Or is it? I tried doing but of those without success.

@2-P: Damn, thanks for the bug report. Shouldn't be too hard to fix those things you mentioned. Can you remove the unlock code from your post please?

@deolrin: I don't want to give away the secrets to the secret dragons, but I guess I can tell you there aren't any tied to hatching whelps or collecting items.
