The pathseems too long and boring, and the fact that you used only one tree to separate the paths makes it seem unnatural to me, there isn't a lot of variation to keep the player interested. You might ad a few dead ends to make it look more maze-ish. A few ledges would make it easy to backtrack as well. 4/10
    I do like the ledge idea... thanks thatll be fun to play with in my next hack... allowing the player an easy exit on their way back through... but I chose not to make it a maze on purpose... no dead ends... because I have some actual mazes already in the game... i thought i would not overdo the maze feel since i have a HUGE maze challenge already. length is also on purpose, the event at then end is optional, kinda like getting to moltres... its quite a trek up mt ember... well this is quite a trek to get a jirachi... its a bit shorter than the mt ember lol but thats because there is more to getting jirachi than just getting through this map (you must use earthquake on a tile that has no indication that earthquake is needed, unless you talk to that tile, but which tile do you talk to?).

    I appreciate all the feed back tho.

    if you liked mazes ive got ya covered,
    this is my Catacombs...
    Hack Name: Pokemon - Ultra Violet Version
    Game Base: Fire Red
    Main Path (the tile error was repaired before the game was released)

    Rock Path

    Ice Path

    Steel Path

    The catacombs are a literal maze (dark, flash usable) that puts you in a room [E] fighting registeel, regice or regirock depending on which path you took out of the main room... leaving the room where you fought the regi puts you back outside the catacombs so you have to complete the maze 3 times through all 3 different paths to get all 3 regis. its quite challenging without using flash (might be fairly easy with flash tho). There is 1 pokeball item on each map aswell... (gets you the glass flutes from R/S/E). And please dont complain about them being straight lines and not "natural", Catacombs are man made tunnels... so yes they are thin straight tunnels... on purpose.
