3×10: Competition 2: DefendVille

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

For this competition, you must create a scenario where you have to defend your outpost from a Combine attack.

The player should have approximately 10 minutes to prepare for the defence, including moving turrets, or other obstacles.

Ideally, the design would allow for players to try slightly different strategies on replays.

Here we go again with another of “Miigaa’s maps”! Follow the route through various puzzles and combat until you reach the final battle.

As with all of his maps, enjoy the beautifully lit and composed areas but be aware that your sightseeing could turn into fighting for your life at any time.

Enjoy!

Dropping down in the lift gives you little time to prepare but fortunately if you keep still the Metrocops won’t see you.

Not until you move, that is.

From then on, you are on a quest to find the hidden ammo cache!

Running without thinking won’t get you very far here. Good Luck.
