Serving the King

Author File Description
Kat
File Details
Map Size: 160x160 (Tiny)
Difficulty: Normal
Made with version: 1.1
Minimap:
The King has summoned you to the castle and has given you a few tasks to carry out.....and you have little choice but to obey.

This is my first scenario. I don't think it is too difficult and I would welcome any constructive comments. If this is any good, I'll probably contimue the storyline.

Bearing in mind this is the author's first scenario, reviewing the map is a little tricky. However;

Playability: This is a simple scenario with a few modest goals to achieve. I did not have too much difficulty in reaching the targets, and your comments in the introduction do state that it should not pose too many problems. It is a small but relatively smooth map, but I must confess that after the initial rush of events, I became a little bored. Playing the map on normal, the recommended setting, meant a fairly high population (75) is required. My only minor complaint here (and believe me, it is minor) was the number of fire outbreaks. I do like these in economic scenarios, but it meant spacing buildings that little bit further apart to attempt to stop all hell breaking loose. I would have preferred a few less.

Balance: Not really much to do once you have some form of income. As I said above, a bit crazy initially and then all goes quiet. What was there is fine, but could do with a bit more.

Creativity: Again, a simple map with what must be said is limited use of the map editor. I have seen far worse, Kat. My earliest attempts were appalling, but a bit of practice and playing (just about) all the maps on this site gives you heaps of ideas and possible scenarios.

Map Design: I can see attempts at producing what I call a 'natural' looking map here. But again it was a little plain (and please don't think that a good map necessarily has to have elements of every possible feature). As I said above, take the time to play a variety of other maps available here. This map is okay, but plenty of scope for improvement.

Story/Instructions: I have given this a 3 because the introduction was simple, but pleasant. You know what you need to do.

For a first scenario, this was fine. I hope you upload more maps to the site. Keep it up!

Too easy. When a wolf attacks was announced, no wolves came out! I thought that the map design was good and that the goals set were very good, but I was disappointed that there were no bandit attacks. There could have been more negative events to make it more challenging. Overall, I think that it is a great start for your first map. They an only get better!!
