Castle of Aaaaahh

Author File Description
Sir Hugh
File Details
Map Size: 200x200 (Small)
Difficulty: Hard
Minimap:
I needed break from making a map for the 2nd historical competition, so I made this one. It is inspired by Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Story: You are on a quest for the Holy Grail. You have searched long and hard and have finally found that it rests in a rude French Casle (actually Scottish in real life). They taunght many times, but the bucket of offal dumped on you was the last chance. He calls on his hidden army. Knights, Charge!

One thing though, the French lies on an island in a lake that is only accessible during low tide. Time is of the essence. Hint: nasty surprises.

I recommend that if you haven't seen "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" that you do
because it is a good laugh. One of my favorite commedies.

May your swords stay sharp!
--Sir Hugh



Note: No rabbits were hurt in the production of this map.

EvilerCheese Sweet! Monty Python and the Holy Grail is one of my favorite movies (I'm watching it right now actually "He hasn't got s--- all over him."). I saw Castle of Aaaaahh and immediately new where it was from :-D. I'm definitely going to download this map, although I'm wondering how you did the ending(surely not like in the movie!).

Map is too hard at current strength. Its a comedy how hard. I guess that is intended. If your friend beat this, I would like to know the secret. Too much oil.

Balance: 2.5
Again too much to overcome before even getting up to the castle. If you get up to attack it, you are burned in the oil that is all around the ways of approach. I played this twice, trying to attack from different crossings too. It didnt work, and the caged war dogs + pitch pits make this impossible to win.

Hey, its a monty python based map. Nice.

Map Design: 3.5
Not sure on whether to rate this as a special map based on the movie, or just another siege. It has a plague event, even though you do not have a keep so I guess thats a movie event. I watched the movie years ago, and cant remember the specifics. I took off because defending crossbowmen in a elevated position is basic and tough.

Story/Instructions: 4.5
Now for something completely different....

For people interested, the real legend says Gallahad found the Holy Grail.

Additional Comments:
Funny map with impossible odds, representative of the movie, I assume.

Well, some other legends say Sir Percival found the Grail. Anyway, my friend gave me a hint "utilize your crossbowmen to full effect."

While this map raised a lot of fond memories, this review isn't good enough. :)

Review retracted, but left for demonstrative reasons. Be sure to read the Review Guidelines and write more to support your scores.

Skullus Great map, I plan to release a mini series Map pack based on the whole Monty Python and the Holy Grail movie if possible, yet of course I won't copy nor do better than your map, Mine's just for laughs.

P.S. "Your Mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberrys!"
