I don't know why I was surprised to hear music that reminded me of Final Fantasy 7 coming out of a map made by someone called "JENOVA". I'm so silly... ;)
Anyway, I love this map. It's got a real artistic feel to it. It is a little dark, but no darker than you would expect the bowels of a vine-ridden temple to be. When I say vines I don't mean the Tarzan kind. More like the eat-you-alive kind. Big, thick, nasty vines. The vines, the cobwebs, the crumbled walkway, and the water-filled base of the temple all add to the feel of this map. Not only is it a beautiful looking map, but it's functional as well. Getting around takes a bit of talent, but there are plenty of separate areas to duel, including a raised platform, the upper walkways, and the watery base.
It's a smaller map, so close-quarters combat will be a must. It seems to work very well for a duel map. There are not too many obstructions, so a skilled player should be able to easily navigate the map (unlike me :p) without many problems. I mentioned the music earlier. When I first heard it, it reminded me strongly of the battle music from Final Fantasy 7, though fans of the series will note that it is not that music... exactly, anyway. At first I was confused, and didn't think the music fit at all. But the more I roamed around the map, the more I found it to fit quite well. However a better arrangement of it would have sounded better, but we have to work with what we have, and most of the time rearranging music is not among a mapper's fortes, so this music will do just fine.
Once again a great map from Jenova*Rebirth*. The texturing is great, considering there are no new textures, and all of the architecture meshes together quite nicely to produce a formidable dueling arena. I can also say I'm looking forward to the map mentioned in the read-me. However I'll leave you to read about that for yourselves...

Hope you enjoy at least 1 or 2 of my re-releases. I have'nt decided wether to re-release the FFA version of this map or not yet as I feel its lacking in a few area's but we will see how I feel. It does have some nice points so we will see. ***** This organic temple is built in the center of a very wet jungle, There is a swamp at the bottom of the pit, 2 wierdly designed bridges, And a dueling pad high up above the swampy area. This map was re-textured from scratch due to the fact the original version was not appreciated by everyone, mainly because the texture's were'nt too great. ***NOTE*** On a side note, I have a very big map being released soon, I won't tell you everything but its a gladiator arena, I have taken most of my references from the movie gladiatr so it should look good, and will contain many area's from the emporers view stand to the slave quarters. To be honest its mostly finnished but I'll see how long till I get it out. Ciao Jenova
