File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
You have angered the gods and they have banished you on a island that is slowly sinking into the sea. Sorounding you are islands which have been completely ravished. Can you please the gods with peace and make it alive off this treacherous island?

Playability: 4/5. This is a very well designed freebuild, peaceful and definitely relaxing. There are plenty of raw materials scattered around the map and the building area is sufficiently large to allow a decent population to be supported.

Balance: 3/5. This is, as the author has stated, an easy freebuild. Balance here is reviewed by looking at the raw material access and the ability to grow sufficient crops to feed and sustain a large population. Nothing at all wrong with the balance, but it would have scored slightly better if, say, there was a little more of a challenge involved.

Creativity: 3/5. Always a difficult one for me to score bearing in mind this is a freebuild. The overall story and map you are presented with is good and I have a particular fondness for island maps. Sound, solid map.

Map Design: 3/5. Again, nothing intrinsically wrong with this. The map size is a manageable area and a decent castle can be built here. Terrain modelling and features are interesting. It's a pleasant enough looking map and I thoroughly enjoyed playing around building castles, wall features and a few eye candy items. If I could suggest anything here it would be a little more work on the design, a few intricacies here and there to make it an even more appealing map. Still, it's a very good effort.

Story/Instructions: 3/5. Nice story, albeit a little short. Bit more content maybe?

IN SUMMARY: This is a very good map for those times when you just want to build. Like it, nice work!
