Playability: 3.5
The playability is an interesing factor here. I can say that everything is planned really well and all the options I'm left with are cleverly done. The problem is that the deer are the only food source and I'm saying this after quite some time of playing there is such a little chance to sustain an economy battered by plague and wolves just from meat. The popularity was always low and whenever something struck me I started going freefall downwards. I evetually got irritated and stopped playing. I haven't finished the mission I'm not curtain you can, but if there is a way it sure as hell is a slow one. I guess through churches and gardens which again reduce your gold amount and you are left with a couple of hunters tents right? Not sure but I'm sorry to say it a really tedious map there are too few resource availabilities and I can't even buy food. Sorry mate but I just don't like such maps this review is based on my own preferences, your eco mission is good and I think there are other players with more experience in those mission who will find it challenging.

Balance: 2
Well, you know it! I had a really hard time sustaining the economy. The deadline was fast approaching and I was nowhere. In my oppinion you should have left the player with more food production options and trade availabilities.

Creativity: 4
The map is an interesting piece of work I haven't played many eco mission, but this was a well created one. For an extreme skillz test click the download above! It's not a straight 5 because it's not perfect there are still some flaws I mentioned.

Map Design: 3
To be honest I didn't like the design much. If you look at it it's just a square field in the middle of the map. You should spend more time as this map is a small one and it's not remotely difficult to design the terrain. I have no precise advise here. You just have to be more flexible with the map design and try out what works for you.

Story/Instructions: 2.5
There are some directions around the map, but it's far from a good story so don't let that drag your score down.

Additional Comments:
A creative although difficult approach for a map I recomend this map for eco-players with a lot of nerves.
