When you start you should be on the left and the enemy lord in the middle. It doesn't really matter too much which enemy lord you fight against. Try to kill the enemy lord without creating new troops or using special powers. Take your time, think outside the box, be creative, make good use of engineers and gold. Choose your path wisely. Watch out for traps. You also have a market available to use. You also have extra troops trapped around the map. When I play i use the Normal Game option. Hope you have fun.
After rushing through your Battle Maze 3 with magic powers (as your stricly recommended NOT to use!) I took a step back and the time to play this one like you intended.
I had great fun exploring the numerous traps, enemy units, terraine, walls and pathways you placed!
I sent slaves first to clear traps and check for enemy ranged attacks, then cleared my way through it with trebuchets/catapults and fire balista.
Didn't make use of the various other units you included because I was afraid I'll need them later.
My strategy worked because a lot of patience and I managed to place some buildings for gold income after finding space for it.
You are very creative with the diverse areas you added, I liked how I had to fight my way through to the deer, tree and farm area!
Possible suggestion I have is a little bit less towers & walls, more hard melee units and some changes in ranged unit placements, so you can't snipe them (which you already did well with placing cliffs) or, you don't end up getting shot when trying to figure out traps/melee unit fights.
Great experience playing this map, enjoyed exploring all the work you put into it a lot!
This is my first comment here, I hope I did okay.
Edit: For changes let's see what you already did with Battle Maze 2 & 3!

Hi Klick Thank you for your review and comments on this map. I do spend a lot of time (Too much time) making these maps. Sometimes they don't always turn out the way that I want. I am glad that you enjoyed it.
