There has been a lot of trouble recently in the lands under the rule of the great Northen Castle. But now after a recent out burst of arguments, the people have risen up and now lay siege on the castle. The lords are not scared as they think their castle is impossible to get into. Will they be proved right or wrong?
Game starts out with a fight in progress on one towers. Then its alot of "pig towers" (reinforced towers) with knights hanging out everywhere. This map could get higher marks if it didnt look like someone was practicing their construction methods on a test map. For example: The bridge (albiet a very nice looking design!) is kinda out of place and sticks out. The raised keep area is a marvel and should be noted for exception of the general low score I gave this. Lots of resources that tend to make a game less interesting and strategic, and more of a who can push the button the fastest on mutliplayer if there is any real peace time set in the beginning (20 mins and up). Keep submitting!

I was the player with the northen castle, but I didnt like the fact that there were only a small amount of space to build, given the fact that you impose already when your castle will end.
I dont think that the map was intended for an AI to be used in the northern castle, but maybe I should send the message that it doesnt react too well with the walls and all. It wont build a barrack nor a mercenary post, and withdraws all of its units, making it alot easier to attack.
It is a good idea of doing a map like this, and the title prompted me to download it and try. I guess its just how hard it is to play that made it hard for me to enjoy the game.
Map Design: 3
Good work on the map design. its all I can say.
You have a story. Good work. Not alot of map makers take time to put a story or atleast instructions in their map.
Refine your skills abit, and make another map. Ill be one of those waiting for your second map.
