Desert Brawl update: v1.02

Alrighty, I've been working on this map for a while now, and it's probably 99% complete. I just need to hunt down those elusive glitches, and I'll need your help! Here goes...

Overview
You are one of many soldiers here in this hostile desert. Your mission? To slay the evil pharaoh and burn his castle to the ground. This task may be the most important yet, so be prepared!

Gameplay
What makes this so special? You use hotkeys for everything! Arrow keys to move. Space to attack. 'C' to use your unit's special ability, if it has one. Capture Plenty Vaults, which will bring in reinforcements. Each time you die, you click on one of your plenty vaults and push the hotkey of the unit of your choice to respawn. Capture all plenty vaults and you win!


I wanted to let you explore the game yourselves, but it'd be tough explaining everything in-game, so I'll just explain it here. :)

Units:
-Hypaspist (A): Your starting unit. Nothing special, although he spawns with ten hoplite reinforcements.
-Murmillo (S): The next in line. His special ability is restoration, which makes him the most resilient of all units. What he lacks is armor and damage.
-Camelry (D): Swift and deadly. He's got 100% pierce armor. Good for hunting down those pesky artillary ballistas.
-Einherjar (F): Tough but slow, he's great for chopping down large groups of enemies that come close. His special ability is blowing his horn, which damages nearby enemies and calls nearby allies to his aid. (This ability is still a bit iffy)
-Gastraphetes (G): Ah, the joy of gunpowder... This guy's unique. Press 'C' to enter aiming mode. In aiming mode, use arrow keys to aim. Space to shoot an explosive arrow. 'C' again to return to normal mode.
-Fanatic (H): Lots of fun to use, and pretty straightforward. Each time he attacks, he increases his damage by 1! If he starts to flame, that's okay. It means his attack has gone up past 40. (And he's just hot that way :P)
-Hersir (J): This guy's also very unique. Each time he attacks, he slams his hammer against the ground, knocking away and stunning all enemies. He's just vulnerable against ranged units.
-War Elephant (K): BFG! He's big! And... um... fat! But besides that, he's so ginormous, he damages units in front of him as he walks!
-Destroyer (L): Slow but deadly. This guy likes spearing other people. If he's in trouble, you can call in a group of allies to help you!
-Son of Osiris (Q): You can't leave this guy out of the pack! Rapidly press space to shoot lightning. If he gets attacked, he has to restart the whole spell! Each time he attacks, enemies have a 60% chance of being struck by a bolt.
-Field General (W): You've seen 'em before, right? Always wanted to be a proud shiny knight on a white horse, right? Now you can! (C) to enter/exit command mode. In command mode, you are slower and cannot attack, but you can order nearby allies to do as you wish!
-Valkyrie (E): A maiden of Valhalla. She can call upon the powers of the gods to bring forth frost even upon this arid desert. If that's not enough, she spawns with a whole battalion of fellow Valkyrie and Einherjars!

Difficulty Levels
-Easy: For the guys that love nothing more than running around stomping merrily all over your enemies and making clam chowder out of their brains.
-Moderate: The way the game was meant to be balanced. Nothing else to say, really...
-Hard: For those that like a challenge. Enemies are stronger and there's 50% more enemies.
-Titan: WARNING! IF YOU'RE REALLY COMPETITIVE AND CANT STAND LOSING, DON'T PLAY THIS MODE! You will have a seizure, scream, and whack your computer with an axe! Beware! You have been warned...

Bosses
Well now, that would be giving away too much information now wouldn't it? Just download it and see for yourself!

More Features
-Each time you play, the layout of the points is completely different! You might have a plenty vault near the oasis one time, and the next have it in the middle of nowhere!
-If you keep on playing the game, you'll eventually meet every land and air military and myth unit in the game!
-One more important thing. If you spawn in the middle of the plenty vault or you get stuck in some weird place in the middle of nowhere, just hit 'P' which will kill your character and let you choose another place to respawn.


UPDATE: v1.02
-Movement is smoother. WAY smoother
-Added two new units: Field General and Valkyrie
-Added advice messages
-Bosses are tougher

A final note: This game's still only 99% complete! Be as critical as you want and fire away with those reviews! Good luck and have fun!

The Playability, well said, i always loved to control a charecter in the middle of a bloodlust! Although you can't move diagonally, but im not really asking for it though, just saying if you can include it. (Also with the einherjar, everytime i press space he just blows his horn, he doesn't attack, is it suppose to do that?)

Balance: 4
I was gonna get ready for a long game, cause it was almost impossible to take that damn city down! Although i've only played on easy, but from the looks i think the other difficulties just increases the enemey's health. ( Old... >< )

Creativity: 5
Read Playbility, i always LOVED to be in a middle of a bloodlust, sad thing is the buggy charecter control for some units... maybe its just me?Units everywhere, epic foes, so intense....... Great Work!

Map Design: 4
Erm, did i mention theres NOT MUCH eyecandy here? I mean i did see some good SPOTS of eyecandy on the map, maybe eyegyptain eyecandy all over the place in one spot, the other... and make the plenty vaults more realistic (more sparkly :/) to get the attention probably and to make it think its worth getting.

Story/Instructions: 3
The cinimatic explains all, yeah... although little objectives... all i see in the objectives task bar is " Take all the pelnty vaults! " or whatever, which made it kinda boring, No Hints? No Kewl Spotlight..?

Additional Comments:
This is my first review, delete or stay, IDC, i just tryed( I have also read the guildlines a long long time ago sshh...)

thanks for the review! I'll get right on the einherjar thing, which is kinda weird, because it works just fine for me... The final update will fix mostly everything.

you screwed up my aom. i cant place units in the editor or rotate or move the view with the arrow keys. did you not think of this? didnt this problem happen to you? why dont i see a solution to this anywhere? oh and i cant select units. I know why this is happening but the scenario is too complicated for me to fix it myself. whats a quick reset or something... im slightly pissed.

sorry, but this problem doesn't occur to me at all. Can you add a bit more detail so I can fix the problem? I'm sure holding Alt+Shift+C to enter camera edit and then leaving with Alt+Shift+C would solve your camera problem.

EDIT: I think i know a solution to the problem using "earthquake mode"

Bascially you assigned the keys used regulary in AoM to move the soldier in the game, without setting it back or something. If this can't be fixed I may have to reinstall my aom. -_- I've done this way too many times.

aekillju That didn't happen to me, expert.

well why did it happen to me?
aekillju Microsoft hates you? Ensemble's ghost is living in your AOM disc? Idk.
Frozenepic You might of modded the game before, and then played this scenario or... a file might be corrupted...?
