    Ah. It has be a long time. I always thought the first time you won an adventure you got a Gold chest for the last level.

    It used to be gold but no guaranteed rare. Now it's a different chest icon, but the drops haven't changed.

    Third map was remarkably unfun considering you get to control three guys with huge attacks. Second map seemed fine. First map was rough, until I figured out/remembered that the grubs don't have much in the way of moves, so you can run circles around them, and for some reason the eggs don't hang onto their armor from round to round, so lava and laser beacons still work on them.

    If I was going to try to "fix" the third map, I think I would try to make the path slightly less congested by the giant zombie spawn circle in the upper left, so my fighters could more effectively clobber those zombies while crawling through.

    Mine held onto their armor the entire time. It isn't just big attacks the people have in the third map (Mom's Warriors), they also have insane armor and blocks -- which makes the whole thing possible. I really enjoyed it minus the respawning Giant Skeletons.

    What what? This sounds interesting, care to elaborate any?

    There're already significant spoilers scattered around the forums. I'll probably do a news post about it soon.

    'invisibility' sucks. they can't see you, yet somehow keep moving in whatever direction you move to. i could not move at all, and they still move toward me. i could rocket dash across the other side of the board, and they still *know* where i am, and start moving there. i could see if maybe you attacked something they would be aware of your general direction, but to make a beeline directly to your location otherwise isn't really invisibility

    Right, holding on to ridiculous armor and blocks was how I got through too, it was just dreadfully boring and often a lot of discarding of great attacks.

    The thing is that you have to use pre-existing characters. And having amazing attacks does help cut down a lot of people. I do wish it wasn't skeletons as their Only Bones is pretty annoying -- would be more fun to chop them down constantly instead of avoid them half the time.

    I understand you have to use pre-existing characters, that's a nonsequitur.

    Not really. If he designed a certain map or experience first and then found characters to fit it then it would be important to know.

    What would you change to improve it? Just saying why you dislike it doesn't help much if you can't articulate what to do to improve upon it.

    You only have to fight one skeleton...

    One group of them. They constantly will be hitting you while you're trying to squeeze through.

    Gotcha. I must have missed that. Yeah, that could help a bit. You're often using chop attacks for single targets due to that.

    That, and also I had a lot of inconvenient turns where I couldn't stab anyone with the spear guy.

    If you fight more than one skeleton you're doing it wrong. =)

    Do you mean the Giant Skeletons? There are smaller skeletons too. Plus, I didn't get a Teleport Other until the last turn or two and had to save it to get to the boss.

    I mean armored skeletons. You're in no rush and the giants can't get through the stairwell so you can imprison them at any point. Of the armored skeletons you only need to fight one (maaaaybe two if you're not fast enough). And you don't need teleport other to kill the boss unless you let your stabber die.
