Caernarfon Castle

Author File Description
Lord Thingol
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Hard
Minimap:
Mighty Caernarfon is possibly the most famous of Wales' many castles. It's sheer scale and commanding presence easily set it apart form the rest- and, to this day, still trumpet the intentions of it's builder, Edward I. Begun in 1283 as the difinitive chapter in his coquest of Wales, Caernarfon was constructed not only as a military stronghold but also as a seat of government and royal palace. The castle's majestic persona is no architectural accident: it was designed to echo the walls of Constantinople, the imperial power of Rome and the dream castle, "the fairest that ever man saw", of a Welsh myth and legend. After all these years, Caernarfon's immense strength remains undimmed.

Warning: This mission is on the borderline between Hard and Impossible. The invasions are fairly challenging, but the most difficult is your ecomomy. After a while it will decline rapidly, especially after the period of 6 months containing 7 disasters! Only a true master could beat this on hard, and people like me will have to stay on easy, and sometimes normal.

A good attempt at a famous castle, a map which has much to offer and a designer that is improving each time.

Playability -5- there is nothing I love more than a challenge and this map certainly was one, the limmitedness of thing in this map, as welll aa the struggle so early in the map is one thoroughly enjoyed.

Balance -4- Perhaps a bit too hard and a bit to easy in some areas it would have been better if the attacks wrer more smoth throughout for some an early attack in the starting situation is unappealing, I enjoyed it so a 4 here.

Creativity -4- a nice representation of the castle and an overalll good design.

Map Design -3- this area needs some work, there are only hills and trees wna dit would be good to se some cliffs, shrubs etc. next time try to add a bit more.

Story/Instructions -4- try to add more to the storyline, it seems that new designers lack all too often in this area, believe me I know i use to do it as well, so did my design partner Arthus but as we went on we realised a story is as important to a map ans the balance,playability,creativity and map design.

A good fight here if you like a challeng both military and economic then this is the map for you.
Keep up the good work.
