A Hero Defence map that enjoys murdering you over and over again. And on that time when you finally manage to get to the final boss, he kills the old man in a lucky shot and you lose.
A more detailed explanation after the jump.
Character Defence 3 is a hero defence map for Warcraft 3. You take the role of various heros/heroines from a bunch of anime series like Fate/Stay Night, Shakugan no Shana, Inuyasha and others to defend an old man while he does… something.
The story of the game isn’t actually really accessible, since it’s a continuation of Character Defence 2. The story messages are also only viewable in the Log in singleplayer mode, so there’s not really any way to get at the story when you’re playing it on multiplayer.
This map has a fairly interesting item system. Most items can’t be bought, and instead you have to purchase a Detect Scroll, which gives you a random item. This can mean that you end up with useless items all game long, or it can mean that you end up being super powerful early on. This adds quite a fair bit of replayability to the game, since the items you get are different every time you play.
Bosses in this game are also quite scary, with most of them being able to easily wipe out the entire team. The main antagonists in the game are Dragons, and the boss dragons are quite terrifying, usually able to kill heroes in 2-3 hits, with their spells being almost instant kills. Player skill is extremely important, as one mistake could lead to failure, with the objective dying.
Monster spawns in Character Defence 3 also scale according to the number of players, so with more players there are more normal creeps spawning each time. This allows you to fill a game with computers for added difficulty, and for even more difficulty there are “hard” and “hell” modes available, which crank up the difficulty quite a fair bit.
