Sand Castle is a symmetrical map that works with any gametype. It utilizes Sandbox's Forge pallet to the fullest. The spawn points have been tested, and each different gametype works well (ex. correct spawns of bombs, flags, etc.)

On the main level, there is the biggest part of the map, the Sand Castle. It has 3 levels within, and another ramp area above. Each object has been carefully placed to look as neat as possible. At each level, you can access the shaft which brings you into the Dungeon.

The Dungeon doesn't have much in it, except for a small hallway of tube pieces and a rocket launcher. Other than that, there is a teleporter that leads back outside (lucky for all of the prisoners!).

In the Sand Castle, there are teleporters on each side which will bring you into the sky bubble, which consists of four different small platforms (one at each 'corner' of the sky bubble) which hold snipers.

I hope you take the time to try this map out! Don't forget to rate it and leave a comment (adding to the tags would be nice too, haha).

Really good map for all game types and spawn points are suitable. Using teleporter nodes to good effect. Good map overall!

AMAZING map! That's all I can say! Actually I can say more than that! It brought me back to my childhood, to the times I'd make a sand castle in my sandbox. If you think about, that's what this map is all about; rediscovering your childhood roots by way of killing others. Never has so much death brought so many tears to my eyes. Once you download this map you discover beauty beyond imagination. And not just in this life, but in the next. Why has such sacrifice gone to waste? It has not. And by such shall we all live in peace. Download this map.

Great map, like honestly. Maybe a few touch-ups and I truthfully feel that it can be used by Bungie as a permanent map. Great job, rate: 10.

Well thought out, balanced and designed. A map I would like to see in Matchmaking.
