Desert Shield

Author File Description
Pat Dark Knight
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Number of Players: 6
Balance: Balanced
Difficulty: Hard
Part 1 of 3:

You have sworn allegance with two brave allies in order to regain what is rightfully yours: Your ancestors' lands.

The taking will be tough. The land has been bivided because of the flooding caused by your ennemies in order to retard your army's arrival. What was before vallies, are now islands of assorted metals and stones that have been brought up by the current.

Set up camp, and attack only when you have enough power strike defeat over the opposition.

*This is a low ressource map because the iron and stone is very scarse, and needs to be shared to permit teams to build ;)

Part 1:Desert Shield
Part 2:Desert Siege
Part 3:Desert Storm

Good gaming,
Pat Dark Knight

Sir Steele lol i would give you 5 for map design for sure!! but let me download first
Sir Steele Playability: 4
I was going to put 4.5 but i don't know why i can't put .5 here. I took 1/0.5 mark off because(you don't have to change this) there were too many hills and made your troops impossible to move, and for some players, they must mine the stones and iron deep inside the mountains so it gets burnt easily by enemy slaves.

Balance: 5
the map was balance well, exept some little balancing errors

Creativity: 4
Since that I've already seen one of these kind of map, (forget the name but i think it's in page 2/3) so i just took 1 mark off.

Map Design: 5
The map design was FANTASTIC! I'm sure that it took you a long time to finish it

Story/Instructions: 4
You did include a story and instructions so i gave you a 4(normally i don't give 5 on this unless there is a long story and instruction)

Additional Comments:
It's a great map, I suggest people download it and play with bots or real players!

lol thanks a bunch Sir Steel. I checked when there were only 5 downloads, and there was already a review! :)

If it wouldn't mind, could you tell me what the balancing errors are? I really want to learn from my mistakes. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again for the review,
Pat Dark Knight
Sir Steele oh it's just that the team on the left lower side doesnt have much iron but the other team on the right higher side has more iron, but don't worry about that
