- This is my AoK Vanilla Contest scenario for 15th anniversary of Age of Empires 2: Age of Kings.
=== STORY ===
- The story of this fictional scenario is about "HELLKNIGHT" who is a young son of a nuclear family. By the way this HELLKNIGHT is a perfect fighter. He is the strongest young man in his country. He is a military student. HELLKNIGHT plays "AoK" strategy game with his country members for 15 years. This is not a computer game. This is a great real role playing strategy game in HELLKNIGHT's world.
- The time of 15th anniversary of AoK strategy game comes. Everyone wants to celebrate the 15th anniversary of this great strategy game. HELLKNIGHT's mother wants sleeping earlier from HELLKNIGHT to be energetic for 15th anniversary of this great strategy game but she forgets that nightmares might occur when people don't sleep in their biological hour. So HELLKNIGHT's nightmare starts because of sleeping earlier. HELLKNIGHT has to find his home in his nightmare by examing all of unknown areas to join the celebration of 15th anniversary of AoK strategy game...
I really enjoyed playing this scenario, as it was very interesting and engaging. It made me a lot curious to find out what is going to happen now, or where I am going. But over all, the exceptionally tough challenges were highly frustrating and thus a 3.
As mentioned before, the challenges were very tough and frustrating, and really tempted me to give up after a few tries.
The author was undoubtedly creative and the effort that was put into the scenario was clearly visible. The attempts to create terrifying elements was great.
Map Design: 5
The map was styled to create a horror scene in a very creative way. The correct placement of correct objects really made it feel like if it was a haunted area. Solid 5.
There was not much of a story, just that a kid gets a horrible nightmare on sleeping in the wrong time.
Additional Comments: "The Nightmare!!!" is an excellent entry by HELLKNIGHT61, but can be made a lot better if he regulates the balance more, because the difficulty can very easily cause a player to give up and leave negative comments (maybe). Adding a bit more story would be helpful too.
