Description playtested by trance, thank you!

getting back in the swing of things. alright, the basic idea here is instead of keeping the rocket alive, i wanted to create a map in which you have to kill the rocket in order to complete the map. here's how it turned out.

p.s. this is a remake of a map i made and quickly delisted a couple years ago because it was so cheatable. i still think it is cheatable, just way harder to do, so if you manage to cheat it then well done.

edit: couple more mines to prevent cheatability.

“…So far, you’ve demonstrated your strength, agility, and stealth, but a ninja must also be cunning and adaptive. With that in mind…kill this rocket.” Sensei walked to the controls.
The student tensed, incredulous. He stood on a raised glass platform encircled by mines; how could he kill a rocket here?? He tried to keep a level head.
“But Sensei, I’m trapped up here.”
“So you are.”
The student gazed at Sensei, searching for some hint of guile. Sensei gazed back. It was an impassive, penetrating look.
“Begin!” shouted Sensei suddenly, and a rocket blasted forward, sights trained on the student. — Nexx

thanks everybody for playing so far, i finally have some more ideas for maps so hopefully i can become a more regular mapper again. mostly concept/puzzle maps. this is my second map since coming back to mapping, so check out my last one too!



note: i have discovered that this map is in fact cheatable, but i'll leave it because the cheat is pretty fun to do as well. thanks for playing :)
