    Default The Beauty and Wonder of Video Game Maps

    I am in no way associated with this website but I recommend visiting it because the content is both vast and unequivocally mesmerizing.

    This has been a favorite site of mine for several years. Looks like they've added a lot of maps since the last time I checked.

    I don't like how a game with the same name on different systems will be listed under the wrong system so often to make the list beefier, as they are often very different games.

    However, please enjoy my Solstice map I gave them some time ago. I made it because there was never a map published online for the game before this, as far as I know.

    I've always wanted to make a Lego model of every room and the stitch them together to see what the castle looks like in 3D. I'm pretty sure it would have towers and such, based on the map. Of course, such a model would take years, more than 2k monies, and a HUGE room to put it in.

    Solstice is no joke. Obviously a labor of love. I would very much like to see your 2k Solstice castle, if you ever make one.

    Thanks, dude. I used to think the game was impossible without the unlimited lives cheat, but by the time I finished that map, I knew every room so well I could actually beat it without dying (or maybe it was just with the regular amount of lives...I forget), though I don't recall if I still needed the unlimited potions...wish I could remember. One of the reasons I made it is there were rumors in the olden days of the interwebs that the rooms overlap and weren't cartographed (is that a word?) very well. I was happy to see that was not the case.

    I don't think I'll ever build the Lego castle, but if I did, I think it would have to go to a VG museum of some sort. If you consider every pixel a single 1-point brick (or whatever Lego aficionados would call it), each room would be huge, let alone some 200 or so of them.
