Here's a fellow that has decided everything he ever needs are within his castle walls in a small peninsula. He has shunned the outside world in favor of just being left alone. But you're not going to leave him alone, are you? ;)

Took me two tries to figure out what to do. Hint: This is no time for finesse.

PLAYABILITY: This Castle probably challenges you as much as any Siege That! Castle can, given the deisgn restrictions imposed by the genre.

BALANCE: It forced me to restart, one of the few Siege That! Castles ever to do so.

CREATIVITY: Both the storyline and Castle were above average! Had the story had a little more depth, creativity would have rated a "5", as well.

MAP DESIGN: (Terrain features for Siege That! maps can not be edited.) Strong Castle design. The one end of the moat seemed rather rather disjointed, however.

STORY/INSTRUCTIONS: Short, but well written story. More depth is needed to achieve a "5".

This is my favorite Siege That! Castle so far. It required careful planning to defeat. That puts it head and shoulders above most Siege That! maps I have played.

Very Very nice!! quite a hard scenario if no siege equipment is used. but if used the front wall can be demolished easily, and the troops killed with rotten cows.

It took me a few attampts to complete without engineers but once i got the right tactics i completed it with 14% losses.

Overall a very playable map.

A fairly difficult castle, considering the budget given. The moats were well-placed though there seemed no use for the extra strip of moat at the left hand-side of the screen. The walls were slanted, rendering seige towers useless, so the player was forced to clear the walls. There is barely any storyline, but the concept of a recluse is quite appealing. Overall a definitely above average seige that map.
