Welcome back to another series of ForgeHub's Community Favorite Maps! We gathered all of your nominations from last month and put the top ten up for a vote. I'm your usual suspect ConnieCat and I'm inviting YOU, yes, YOU, to join me on this voyage through uncharted seas. Is that thunder I hear; or was that simply the collective groan of the entire community? Let's jump right in!
Here are the nominations and winners for September!
From the legendary team that brought you July's community favorite, Pac-Man Retro comes another exciting mini game in their arcade cabinet series. Shaudy430, hamish-k, b0b is here, and Ineedmorebleach continue to impress us with their ingenuity and dedication to their signature brand of mini game. For those who aren't familiar with this mode, you can check out a sweet gameplay video here to explore the pixelated wonders of our past. Just think, Space Invaders really was the start of the alien blasting sci-fi genre of gaming that Halo now dominates. Really makes ya think.
Suppression does exactly what it sets out to do; create a fun 4v4 map in the style of Halo 2's preeminent 'Lockout'. Everywhere we look it seems there's always somebody singing Lockout's praises and it's not hard to see why. The ol' faithful Bridge + Tower combo is in full force here in ARPOD's original layout. While impossible to miss the clear inspiration, Suppression shines in its own clever way. Sporting a timeless jungle temple ambience, Suppression is absolutely worth checking out and hopping into on your game night.
It's been too long since Grifball was at the forefront of our minds, and what better way to bring it back into the spotlight than with this gorgeous creation by PUNISHER2510? Forever the king of open-ended aesthetics, Grifball's simple gameplay and time-honored layout provide an easy flat surface for the most creative minds to play with. Basing the map's aesthetic on a specific piece of concept art listed in the map description, PUNISHER made good use of the limited budget in bringing this space to life. Using lighting trickery to turn the snowy plants pink has been a long-time favorite technique of mine; and that is only one of the remarkably innovative uses of pieces on Zise's Respite. Grab some hammers, some friends, and give this court a try. Just in time for Energy Sword Sunday.
We can't wait to see what other maps the community makes. Tune in next time as we'll be sharing some of the best maps made each month!
