This map left me a little frustrated... The idea behind it is quite original, as your only opponent is a pack of hungry lions, but the playability is really poor.
Playability: I give it only 1. A few minutes after you start this map, you are "invaded" by a horde of lions and your Lord gets killed. Unfortunately you cannot build any walls, so you cannot defend yourself from the hungry beasts; I tried to defend the Lord in various ways and finally came up with the idea of building a series of lumberjack's huts around the keep to completely deny access to it! Then I had my archers(you start with only 5 of them) on top of the keep to shoot at the lions. The problem is that there are continuous "invasions" of lions at regular, short intervals and to win you must build up a considerable force of archers and spearmen and advance to the lions' nest. Well, it really ain't easy to build up such a force, as your economy is costantly ruined by the animals. It took me a LOONG time to build an army of just 35 men and after a huge effort, i managed to kill all the present lions, before the next wave appeared( if you wipe out one pack, another shows up after a very short time, so you must stay close to the nest, where they show up and kill them as soon as they appear).
Balance: See the previous notes.
Creativity: The basic idea is quite original, so I decided for a 3.
Map design: Small map and rather confusing. I liked the pyramids, though.
Story and instructions: The story is decent, but you get no instructions.
