This is a demo for, hopefully, a large campain. This first scenario is about a messenger who has to travel through Sejuk-infested land to deliver a message to the Pope (who ultimately calls in the First Crusade). Anyway, tell me what you think. Its fairly hard and definately action-pacted. One hint: RUN! Run for your life!
Wow! This sure is an action-packed one! This demo could use a little bit of work, but already is a pretty good scenario. Below is what I thought of this teaser...
First, the playability was great. This demo had a great fun-factor. I was constantly at the edge of my seat barely escaping running wolves, fast riding cavalry, flinging arrows, airborne catapult projectiles, and much much more. This scenario had a great strong point in playability.
Second, the creativity was average. It would have been nice to see the "Click-talk" trick implemented into the beginning town. That could have provided more background information on the campaign itself. Perhaps try inventing a few original trigger tricks or concepts.
Third, the Balance was just right. Not too hard, not too easy. The difficulty rose slowly as I progressed in the scenario. To wrap this aspect up, I think you did a good job balancing the scenario.
Fourth, the Map Design was pretty good. I liked the mountain range and swamp especially. Perhaps try using more elevation changes. More importantly, avoid have big blocks of forest filling up space not used in the map. If you're not going to use a lot of space in a map, use a smaller tileset.
Fifth, the Story/Instructions were average. I believe the scenario introduced a historical story. The instructions also clearly stated what to do. But I was disappointed that the units in the town didn't talk. I would have been more satisfied they said something when you selected them.
Wrapping it up, this demo is a pretty good scenario. Overall, it is above average. Not perfect, but above average. Nothing is perfect! I suggest following the few tips I suggested above. Afterwards, I'm sure the final product will be great!
