Did you notice a winged hippocampsu on ES screenshot? What the heck is that?

To see that picture(link)

On the upper left part of the screenshot.
(If you can make these things on scenarios it would be cool!)

It's a loooong story of the Flying Purple Hippos. To say it shortly - it is a unit requested by AoMH forumers some time ago, incredibly weird

Its not a hippocampus, its a hippopotamus. The FPH was a unit requested by AoMHers and has its own clan. Go to the clan forums to see what its about.

That gives me a new idea for a scenario...

Revenge Of The Flying Purple Hippos

It is a time of massed purple crisis. The leader of the angry, evil gang of yellow hippos known as the "Hooded Hippos Of Hell", wants to eliminate his only threat, the flying purple hippos for all eternity. He leads a series of vicious assaults on the Flying Purple Hippo bases, and their king, Lord Hippomash, is killed. Step into the shoes of the king's son, Prince Hippocheese, in 245 action packed levels, in which he tries desperately to defeat the merciless leader of the yellow hippos, and re-claim his father's once grand kingdom...

New features, including:


  • Changable weapons, including the Hippo blaster and the Frog Starngler
  • Over 52395 triggers in each level
  • "ROFL" style comedy inspired by films such as "Scream2"
  • Advanced RPG system, where you die if you have no food, or you smell Hippomash's feet.

Coming Soon, to a download section near you!

Hippocampus is a water mythological unit.

The flying purple hippo is a cheat unit.

Whats this? Right when ES shows us the FPH people become startled and forget all about the flying purple hippo.

Heh, itsa long story so i won't bother explaining it - newbs

Notice how it looks very similar to that pic of the FPH i posted a long time ago. Same "pegasus" wing structer

Er...isn't that pick under the NDA TSD?

And the FPH is the coolest, coolest, best, awesomest, wickiest unit ever dreamed up. Half discolored hippopotamus, half pegasus, it is the wisest of all animals! It lives on the sacred isle of Purplopolis 9correct me on this one clan scholars) and has its own loyal gathering a high templars.

It's Hippohome. Purpleopolis is the capital of Hippohome.

It's there ! I can't believe it ! I love you, ES !

Well, they really put it into the game. *jumps around*

Do you think it's a cheat unit ? What would be the cheat ? "aomheavenrules" or "gimmehippo" ?

Yes, it IS a cheat unit, and the cheat is kinda obvious, you just have to think about it for while.

He probably didn't, but can you imagine that thing as a regular unit?

The EAT mascot could be... Um... An Elephantine Amphibious Trebuchet (throws elephants at enemies from land or water). It should also moonwalk to remind us of the Alpha*.
