Roundup: Week Ending August 5
Apologies are in order before we proceed. With the Olympics taking center stage over the past couple of weeks, we have to admit to a bit of slacking. Compound that with surgery for one of our reviewers, the Universal update to Dynamite Jack, and a host of new (iPhone) map-makers and we are in the middle of a “perfect storm”. We are a week late, but here’s the (delayed) Weekly Roundup.
Pick of the Week
In a unique turn of events, our Pick of the Week and runner ups were ALL from the same map-maker. We had a hard time making our top pick as they all felt a bit similar and we couldn’t agree initially on our favorite. After a bit of deliberation, and thumb wrestling, we sided with Tomb Of Akhenaten. It’s not a short map nor is it extremely difficult, but it’s fun. Check it out!

A bit of back and forth, but still a fun map with some nice visuals. This one was tankete’s favorite, but I’ve got stronger thumbs. Oh, and watch out for the lasers!

This was cally17′s first map and we found it almost as fun as the others. A bit too much of bombing rock to open areas kept this out of the top spot.
