Fanatic's Encircled Castle

Author File Description
Fanatic
File Details
Map Size: 300x300 (Medium)
Safely tucked away in a valley with loads of resources,
and surrounded by a river, you couldn't be more safe.

This map is mostly a design showoff, as it's not terribly
well suited for attacks, being as it's so well protective.

I have had several days of fun trying, and enjoying the overkill
of enemy by my many archers poised high atop the hillsides and
towers.

More than anything else, enjoy the layout of the map, which is
probably my best so far.

Playability: Even for a freebuild map, this is still a great effort and something that keeps your interest going. I have had a bash at this a few times now, when I just fancy playing around and even trying out a few ideas of gameplay. Not a huge area of flat land, but I do actually prefer a freebuild with the option of building up your castle on different levels, elevations and in unusual designs.

Balance: Sufficient materials around but not to the extent that it becomes boring. You still have to work at this. Invasions require a bit of work to fend off if this is what you intend to do.

Creativity: Nice map overall, again something just a little different.

Map Design: Very good, looks and plays fairly realistically, but credit here goes to that multitude of terrain.

Story/instructions: A little lacking in quantity, but that's about all.

Reviewing a freebuild is tricky, as most would agree. However, I really do like this map. It has a good feel to it and is ideal to play around on. Credit has to be given for the work that has gone into this, because it has resulted in an enjoyable map. Check it out!
