This map was a joy to play. Managing the foot soldiers, mangonels, and archers was a challenge that the player had to overcome to achieve victory. When the enemy broke through a line of defense, I took pleasure in countering them with a tough band of melee soldiers. Good work here!

Balance: 4
I think that the map was a wee bit easy, in my opinion. But the map was quite well balanced, and I congratulate the author for achieving that, as most designers cannot achieve a good sense of balance.

Creativity: 4
Good work here. I liked the river, that was good. I especially liked the burning stake that was on the map! I think the river could be toned down a bit. It lookes a bit blocky and square shaped. You may want to stay away from that in the future. Perhaps adding some ripple features, rocks, and fords would've made the river more interesting.

Map Design: 4
Very good job in this category, overall. I think perhaps the cliff that the castle was on could have been more rugged. Because the castle sitting perfectly atop the cliff looked a little strange. Perhaps make it look more rugged, perhaps make the cliff more rugged and torn up. Add some rocks and whatnot. Be sure to add some more textures to the high plains you have. Add some dirt, stones, or rocks, make it look interesting. Perhaps even some shrubs.

Story/Instructions: 2
Please make your stories in English if you are submitting them to an English speaking website. I gave you a 2 because I noticed that you at least wrote something. Something is better than nothing, I suppose. But please put more effort into your story and translate it into English.

OVERALL: This map was quite fun to play. Not too much story, but it had near perfect balance. The overall design is good, there was a good river and nice use of shrubs. A little more creativity could have been expressed, but the map is still a joy to play on. Keep designing maps!
