Huruey's CastleUnlocks at level 2 or with the Mega Maps Pack

Went public on 3/25/2012
Number of ratings: 1116
Average rating: 4.062 / 5
104 territories, 27 bonuses, 4 distribution modes
|An isometric 3D castle ground, complete with woods, pond and even a secret passageway!
Note: Due to the 3D nature of the design, some links in the towers are a little surprising. Basically each tower links all of its entrances/exits. This means that you can go from the balcony to the bridge in one move on the east tower, for example.
Review by SamStone on 3/29/2012.
One of the prettiest maps in the game. Balanced as well... good work !!!
Review by Tinymac12 on 4/8/2012.
I just felt that some of the attack routes weren't as clear as possible. Like from castle wall 5 to passage 5
Response by map creator Huruey • apex on 4/9/2012
Unfortunately, when modelling a more complex 3D environment as a simple 2D warlight map, there are many things such as paths which go behind, under or in other things, which simply cannot be represented in the usual way. As such, the links in the 2D space which by we represent the environment are no longer meaningful, and if made explicit will cause the map to look a mess as there would simply be lines crossing all over the place.
In order to prevent having to ruin the image of the map by having a mess of lines covering up each tower, I decided that the connections of a map of this nature may be better represented by more semantic connections.
It is surely different to other warlight maps in this sense, but I don't think there is a way around this without significantly diminishing the feel and aesthetics of the map.
Hopefully, as noted in the description, once you understand that each tower simply connects every one of its entrances/exits, then the connections should start to feel more natural. :)
Review by Evil Overlord on 4/26/2012.
Very fun map. Well designed. Good job.
Review by DagenDaDragon (ReTIRED OF WARLIGHT) on 3/26/2012.
It is a really nice looking map and for the most part the connections where not very confusing, the only time I was a bit surprised was at the bottom of the left ladder and the hut.
Review by Moros on 3/26/2012.
Nice map, but a few mistakes:
Village 6 is not part of The West bonus.
Village 2 is not part of Village Path bonus.
River path 6 and Back path 2 don't belong to the Courtyard bonus.
Courtyard 11 doesn't connect to Courtyard 10.
Response by map creator Huruey • apex on 3/26/2012
Thanks for the feedback. A couple of these I have already fixed, and the fixed version is now public (version 1.1). Courtyard 10and 11 are now connected, and village 6 is in the west bonus.
The other things two listed were intentional and I do not deem to be mistakes. Many thanks though. :)

Review by Dalas120 on 4/28/2012.
This is an exceptional map. It is very well balanced, with the higher-income, more dangerous castle contrasting very well with the lower-income west. This map is especially good with large groups of players, preferably 5-6.
Review by PWNKamikaze on 5/25/2012.
love this map, not too many territories and yet it's still always fun
Review by Marmaran_1 on 10/13/2012.
The best map ever !
Review by [SoA~] Marcus [Nomads] on 9/9/2013.

Difficult to see some of the movements.

Review by 314 on 3/27/2014.
This is one of the best maps I've seen so far...the idea is great and the paths are cleverly created.
Review by Waldosis on 4/22/2014.
Cool map design, but certain start areas provide a huge advantage, while others are instantly crippling. Troop movement options, especially in the castle, are far too linear.
Review by Hayquill on 4/22/2014.
It was sometimes difficult to tell how areas connected.
Review by Olorin on 3/26/2012.
Interesting graphics fun little game.
Review by ChrisCMU on 5/30/2012.
Very fun and original. Just wish there were some lines connecting territories that aren't obvious (like where the secret passages and ladders connect to). You have to do a lot of following the "more info" links to figure it out. Plays very well though

There are too many bonuses in one spot.
Review by DAJTAD on 5/16/2013.
Review by ProXy on 2/18/2013.
Some of the spaces are a bit counter-intuitive and weird and it degrades into a struggle for the towers somewhat, but other than that it's a gorgeously artistic map with a lot of replayability.
Review by django on 12/22/2012.
Great map. Fun, not too complex, but not too simple. Overall excellent.
Review by Emil Sten Signahl on 2/2/2013.
The spawns suck and players can easily can an overwlming advantage against a bad spawn
Review by Mario Balotelli on 4/29/2013.
Shit spawn location distribution.
Review by DarkWarriorNL on 11/29/2013.
Just awesome map bro! keep up the good work :D
Review by Zooke on 3/22/2014.
Great map that avoids some of the annoying aspects of too many borders

Now we're all sucking those robot nuts.
Review by Yoda on 10/29/2013.
A bit goofy
Review by jieming on 5/3/2013.
I don't like this map for a two player game because it is easily one-sided. If you get placed in the wrong spot, you will likely lose the game. The courtyard is a great starting position, but the village is really poor.
Review by Thorgal on 5/8/2012.
Too easy to win compared to Battle for Middle Earth.
Response by map creator Huruey • apex on 5/6/2012
Depends on what settings you play and who you play against, surely? What settings have you tried? I recommend FFAs and small team games.
Review by Chief on 4/28/2012.
very strategic map! link to game: http://WarLight.net/MultiPlayer.aspx?GameID=2589670
Review by Jazz on 10/13/2014.
Once you understand how the territories align, it's a very nice map, both visually and strategically.
Review by LupusIntus on 12/6/2014.
Ridiculous map. Seems completely unbalanced and is literally nothing but choke points. Very little room for strategy and planning of attacks.
Review by Rogue Nikolai Krogius on 3/31/2015.
Review by The Pika Military on 4/5/2015.
i like it
Review by Coolfolder on 4/25/2015.
I think this map was pretty cool! Some of the connections in the middle were confusing, but other than that it was pretty clear. The castle terraces are key to winning!
Review by blob on 5/24/2015.
Maybe the best map in the game.

Review by Hades on 6/8/2015.
In ffa, players will end up getting ganged up on, but good for small team games
Review by VaporWolf [FROG] on 7/15/2015.
nice and small
Review by King_Bradford on 8/5/2015.
Excellent for a quick game, but also one which strategy is needed for the high number of different paths you can take.

This is a great map, and can be won by either side, even if one person is a much better player than the other.

A fine map, but I just don't really like 3D maps.
Review by IanTeig1982 on 2/6/2016.
Review by graemes on 2/25/2016.
A fun map for FFAs and 1v1s.
Review by sherron on 2/27/2016.
Tough map. The courtyard is hard to hold. Take the WEST if you can or the castle towers and then bludgeon your opponents down over time.
Review by nickbenatar on 3/11/2016.
Technically it's a decent map but I hate playing games on it. You can never get a good defence going and it's not immediately apparent how some of them connect. Fun idea, annoying to play on.
Review by jecowa on 3/25/2016.
The map looked like its connections might be a bit confusing, so I looked it over real well before starting. It's not that large of a map, so it didn't take too long. The tower paths, roofs, secret tunnel, and balcony are all connected. I missed the part about the secret tunnel not connecting to the walkway above until later, though. Even with the confusing connections, it was a really fun map, though. Battling for ground on a castle instead of some kind of world map is a nice change in pace.
Review by INSIDE on 6/9/2016.
Review by Leviathan on 6/10/2016.
It's a pretty map, but I didn't lose a battle or even make a strategic decision. I felt like I was just flowing mindlessly into all the crevices.
Review by TheDragonWarrior on 6/19/2016.
amazing and creative
Review by WarCat69 on 7/10/2016.
Being a new player it took me several attempts to conquer this map.I actually now love this map!

Not one of the best but still a nice map
Review by CunoThe1 on 7/29/2016.
i do not like the castle, with all the different ways to enter. it is very confusing.
Review by LittleDragon on 8/13/2016.
Didn't interest me much at all but I'm sure someone out there will enjoy it.
Review by Levi4444 on 8/20/2016.
I really liked the narrow branching paths and passages, it was a little hard to see what territories connected to each other but it was easy enough to figure out after a little while playing
Review by Padan on 9/8/2016.
Such a well balanced 2 player map.
Review by falcon500 on 9/23/2016.

No they aren't? :P
Review by Eronigig on 12/19/2012.
This map is rather small, making it hard to create intricate strategies and forces you to think on the ball.
Review by Lummpy on 10/14/2013.
Review by Tacohiman on 3/8/2013.
All of the connections make no sense whatsoever, and the map is confusing, and poorly balanced.

Loved the map! Lost several times with suddenly very large forces for one AI team. I think the win finally came with a bit of luck! Fun to have the 3D. Thanks!

Review by DanWL on 12/16/2013.
Review by Evan McCarter on 9/1/2013.
enjoyed this map more than i thought i would! i expected the chessboard-like castle tops to be annoying, but they turned out to be an important challenge of the map, forcing me to protect the entrances to the tower rather than the actual towers. the lower territories seem interesting also, although i haven't played them yet. one interesting non sequitur is that the "secret passage" area is actually part of the castle, rather than the ground, even though it would appear so at first.
Review by blueDragon on 10/30/2013.
pretty much fun
Review by MMMMPH on 10/5/2013.
great map. it's fun beacause this game really needs variation, and it's really well made. the map gets you on an fun adventure to capture Huruey's Castle!
Review by This Is A Portal Gun on 11/14/2013.
It is a good map, but it is easy and fairly liner. It's defiantly fun to play and a good map that you can relax and not think to hard about strategy.

great map, although the forts seem to be hard-to-defend. Also, multiple crossing are a real threat to fort defenders.

I like this map. Sometimes it's a little difficult to see, which fields are connected. But I think, this is what makes the map interesting to me.

THIS MAP IS ABSOLUTE SHIT. GO FUCK YOURSELF
Review by Norian on 1/21/2015.
Fun map. The only downside is when one team/player starts on the ground and the other up on the walls, but that's what settings are for. Adjust a bit and it's perfect.
Review by Daryle on 1/30/2015.

I loved it, I lost when I played but the people were fast and the map was delightful!
Review by The Minister of Lost Souls on 7/21/2012.
The west seems a lot stronger than the other locations.
Also, you should make a second map like this but with more towers and walls to make a proper castle! (if you have the time.)
Review by Blast Hardcheese on 8/4/2012.
Insanely creative, and high-quality art to boot. Also a blast to play!

i dont like it cuz of the so many ways u can lose and all the territories seem connected in some way
Review by kluge on 3/27/2012.
Gorgeous map, seems decently balanced so far.
However, tower connections are near impossible to figure out. Additional cues to show connections would be greatly appreciated.

Pretty cool but too many un-marked paths.
Review by Ironheart on 3/25/2012.
good looking map but to find connections is ahead ache the distributions also add more fun to it it has to be 4/5 if it had less confusing connections it will be 5
