COMMENTSA scary-lookin maze to get to a mystery tower of doom? Intriguing... the maze thing is different... Is this meant to be an early version of Blackthorn city? Is it just me, or did CoolBoyMan use this as one of the towns in his hack called Pkmn Brown? That kinda looks like Tin Tower...Maybe they cut the map? The towers look nothing like that in the english version of this beta map its blackthron i reckon cause there is the dragon den clearly it went under heavy contruction and became a tower but they realised they have had too many tall building in the game alrieady (light house, tin tower, sprout tower, goldenrod mart etc.) so they changed it to a dank dingy cave just my theory and when they moved the lake of rage gym to cinawood also my other theory (see lake of rage beta map for info) they filled the empty space with a maze ... 'eh hang on we already have a maze' they would have to have to change it to some water if that made sense to you good work :p oops shoulda proof read *clearly it went under some heavy construction and became a CAVE I have just realized that the Tiles forthese towers were never used but exist in the programming. However the peice of software that did this misinterprets many of the beta tiles.(yes I know what the software is but I'm not telling for multiple reasons that I'll never mention no matter how many times I am asked.) Actually this is the Beta Ecrutek (or however it's spelled) Orgininally, this town and blackthorn were swapped. Plus, this shows how the two towers were to remain...not-burned lol i like the maze at the top About the towers not looking like this in the final, maybe the design of the tower was slightly "religious-like" in some cultures, and Nintendo had not wanted to use "religious" things in their games, so they cut the design. Similarily how the Sage sprite in G/S/C's Japanese version has his hands put together like he's praying. In the US version, Nintendo of America made his arms crossed instead to avoid the "religion issues". They didn't do a good job in pearl/diamond them were a chrch is in Hearthome City. This map is a bit weird. By then it would suggest there is no Icepath if it were Blackthorn and that there is no Mahoganny Town if it were Ecruteak. It has difficulty in route if it were Violet City also.
