Wonderful map, really well balanced. There's a choice of island-hopping or building the Australian mainland, which leads to a great show-down. The lay-out is beautiful and progressive, with only the one, rather unavoidable, cul-de-sac that is Japan. One missing link: Gorontalo -> Halmahara

Thanks for letting me know about The Missing connection :) To be honest I think it was just a bit of carelessness that led to japan being so linear. It was the first island I drew, and I ended up just not connecting it to anything else I guess :P. When I do an update I may either add a connection to Western Pacific or remove it completely.

This map is greater then it appears.

Nice map, great for a 1v1 or 2v2.

Solid map. There is room for improvement, however.
First, Japan is too isolated. I recommend a second link, probably from Kanto to some point on New Guinea or Papua New Guinea.
Next, I don't think of Sri Lanka as part of Oceania, and I think it makes the Sumatran corner too valuable. I would eliminate Sri Lanka.
Third, a link from Brisbane to New Caledonia would be both realistic and helpful.
Also, the bottom third of the map is empty. You don't need it. Rotate the global view northward (bringing everything down) until it's centered about on West Papua. Then you can expand the size of all the territories, some of which are very small and hard to distinguish and/or view.
Finally, and this is very nitpicky, technically there is a lot of Oceania (southern Pacific islands) that is omitted from the map.

Tough map, race up the coast of WA to hold a territory in Asia and push east to take Australia

Really hard to beat on 4 player (as in the Single player level 'Feeling Blue'-- you v 3 aggressive AIs--- quite a few tries, but very rewarding to get it right!!

Unlike the other maps so far (except the first boss map). This appears to be a "One Solution Attrition Map" where every move must follow a specific pattern of play. It is frustrating to replay game after game to find that pattern. I'll find it, only because there are maps I want to reach beyond it. But my chain of attachment to this game is broken by this map and I am looking for another good match to tak it's place. Giving an optional set of starts would really help.

Broken territory links between islands.
