Though "Castle Builders" maps are not my favorite type of maps. I found this map very enjoyable and addictive, the map is playable again and again because you can use the few number of resources available in the certain area of the map or stretch out and take resources from other parts of the map, making the castle building slower but more challenging.
The balance is better balanced than most i have played lately, the amount resources on the map allows for a challenging map. In my own opinion there was too many tree's for my use and after awhile a forest had developed.
There is great creativity in this map, though there are many maps including rivers, the designer has gone to great effort to use the design tools to his maximum use, the designer has successfully used the river and the placement of the recourses to create a challenging and exciting map.
Map Design: 4
The designer has shown good use of elevation tools and map editing tools to make the waterfall look more realistic, the potion of the resources had been well planed to make the map hard and challenging. Though the map is only small because of the way the map is planned it seems much bigger.
The designer hasn't really made an effort with a story just a few lines.
With a story the map would of had a good rating though it hasn't it loses vital points there.
Any problems with the review don't hesitate to contact me.
