Atlantis Castle

Author File Description
LambrettaGB
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Impossible
After spending many hours happily playing all the maps I have downloaded, and never failing to win any of them. I have now done my first attempt at doing a Map ( siege ).
The one thing that seems to have happened is for some reason I seem to have made it too hard, I cant even do it on easy.
If anyone does manage to do this map, I would appreciate some feedback, whatever happens :o)
thanks LambrettaGB ( email: seedphil@aol.com )

Playability:.....I gave a one because the attackers are so vastly outnumbered, and the defenders so well defended that you'd need a Division of M1Abrams heavy tanks to do any damage at all,...then when they were destroyed you'd have to use some sort of thermonuclear warhead.........................Balance:.....I gave a one because of the above stated reasons.....................Creativity:.....I gave a four because this map and castle are nothing if not creative, and there are some areas that look nice....................Map Design: I gave a three because the only passage to the castle is only wide enough for one man at a time + the map design is such that its impossible to employ the siege engines you build. They cannot move within range of the castle. Story/Instructions: I gave a four and was the aspect of this map and scenario that I enjoyed the most.............Summary:....When I downloaded this map and saw it for the first time I was in shock. I knew it was impossible, as the author stated so There wasnt much gameplay involved. Its a cute novelty, but its not a siege. Please take this as constructive critisisim, and try to make your next map more playable. You clearly have a great imagination, and are adept with the editor. I would have loved to have given you a much higher rating, so please make one that I can rate high.

Although the story could be interesting the author has even made a note that his skill was not good enough to beat the castle. His reason for making the map was due to him not finding a tough enough castle in the downloads.

I do not recomend this map for anyone, and it is really an impossible map to beat. Any designer can create a map filled with countless defenders and siege machines and make it unbeatable. That is not the challenge. Design a map that has even the slightest of entry points to the castle if you want to make it tough.

I try very hard not to be to negative, however, all I can score is average in a few categories.

This is actually impossible, and has no playablilty.

Playablity:
You run up through a single line of land, and die. Thats not much fun. It defends its self. No fun their either. Good show of the power of the balista though.(-5)

Balance: Well you can't win attacking, you cant loose defending, its really no fun anywhere. Its just like a slaughtering line attacking... Good for the gore.(-5)

Creativity: A well put together casle. If it wasnt for the water surrounding it, this would be a difficult siege. I would like the author make a remake of this without all the water, it would solve so much.(-2 for not being able to get through the gates and see the pretty stuff inside)

Map:It looks nice(+2) but lacks playablity, (-2:issues noted above) And there is only one way in which is a death trap (-1)

Story:Not much but not bad. It could have gone into more detail about why this was so impossible, and described the hours of torment the people put up with guarding such a monstrosity. (-2)

Putting land around it would make it play able, how about a V.2.0?
