Romanus Tanneur99 don't know how to review.

In the first scene it tell you to find Taurus and go east to the Catacombs.

To recover the Sword of Atlantis must first go up the hill and then to the Champion.

And for the priestess must go up the hill again to unlock the monolyth.

Those eagle Warriors were hard so you couldn't kill the Sorcerer so he is killed by trigger.After all Conan never saw him.

The castle isn't supposed to help you.It's just eyecandy.

And for killing Toth-Amon must click something near there.It damage him very hard.

If it is hard i can say that this man Byzantine has a fixed version easier than this one in the end and more challenging and will give some hints in the tavern to north.Also don't go to the big tower to the north.

@ The author and Romanus

“Tanneur99 don't know how to review.”

Critics are always welcome. Could you be more specific so I could learn from you?

”In the first scene it tell you to find Taurus and go east to the Catacombs.”

The first scene does not work. I waited 5 minutes for the first scene to happen after reading the above post. But nothing happens; all you see for 5 minutes is a dark section of the map. The objective to find Taurus should have been mentioned in the introduction screen.
So your scenario in reality starts with Conan south of the town, facing the area where you should retrieve the eye of the serpent by killing four swordsmen. I repeat, there is only one swordsman and no eye of the serpent.

”To recover the Sword of Atlantis must first go up the hill and then to the Champion.”

You should have played your scenario before you post the above remarks. The sword of Atlantis is NOT to recover. If you go first up the hill your comp crashes, if you kill the swordsman and then go up the hill your comp crashes.

“And for the priestess must go up the hill again to unlock the monolyth.”

Your objective is to kill the priestess. The process of doing that did not add to the game play, what I described in my review. There is no hint referring to the monolith.

”Those eagle Warriors were hard so you couldn't kill the Sorcerer so he is killed by trigger.After all Conan never saw him.”

If it is impossible in your opinion to kill the sorcerer, your objective is misleading, as it clearly says to kill the sorcerer. BTW there is nothing easier than to kill the Eagle Warriors. You give monks. If a designer gives monks to a player he should know that the player can lure the monks to follow if he is injured. Conan arrives in front of the monks and the Sorcerer with all his hit points. And if Conan “never saw him” as you put it, how could I write in my review: “The last enemy in Zambula dropped dead at my sight”? I saw him drop dead at my, meaning Conan’s, sight. In closing “Conan never saw him” is a false statement.

“The castle isn't supposed to help you.It's just eyecandy.”

So your objective is to change the colour of a castle from “grey to blue” in order to enhance map design? That is not creative to say the least.

”And for killing Toth-Amon must click something near there.It damage him very hard.”

If that is the case, your instructions and hints are not sufficient.

”If it is hard i can say that this man Byzantine has a fixed version easier than this one in the end and more challenging and will give some hints in the tavern to north.Also don't go to the big tower to the north.”

You know a lot about “this man Byzantine”. No it is NOT hard. My review says that there was no real challenge until the last objective, which will probably become easy when I “click something near there.”
Legolas_1 Ahhh nobody can understand

The four Swordsmen are in the goddammed purple area.Yo get there ou must click the first Hand Cannonerr you ll find.

The Monolyth will deactivate a trigger that causes you to be killed if you reach the area near the Priestess.

The Castle is nothing importand just a trigger that activated the next one.

The Sorcerer in Zambula dies because after so many enemies it is hard to win him.

Toth - Amon will be easily get killed if you try to get to the Crypt.

The title “Conan the Barbarian” is misleading, as the game has nothing to do with the movie of the same name. The scenario is based on the Virgin game from the early ninetieth and your hero is Conan the Cimmerian, who wants revenge for the death of his wife and friends.

PLAYABILITY: The playability is weak and the scenario full of bugs. The first objective tells you to “Recover the eye of Serpent by eliminating the four Swordsmen.” The player should get in game information to find Taurus in order to get to the swordsmen, but the trigger does not work. For minutes you only see a dark section of the map at the start of the scenario; the player should guess that he has to go north into the town, click the first hand cannon he sees to get to the catacombs, where he kills a minimum of seven swordsmen, but does not recover anything. The second objective says “Recover the Sword of Atlantis in the Crypt”, but whenever I got on the top of the elevation, before or after killing the elite swordsman, there was lag, my comp crashed (P4/2,2GHz, 512MB RIMM, 70GB HD) and I had to restart TC. Hence there was no sword of Atlantis. The third quest “Go to the jungle ruins and kill the priestess”, did not add to the pleasure and killing all those enemies was quite repetitive. The next the same and only Eagle Warriors in Zambula to defeat: “In Zambula get inside the Catacombs and kill the sorcerer.” No need to do as asked, the sorcerer is killed by a trigger. After that you do long walking to get a castle, which is annoying, as I learned later from author’s description that the ownership change is meant to be eye-candy and only activates another trigger. For your last objective you have to kill a self healing samurai with HP 850 (1+2/0+2) and AP 8+12, with Conan HP 240 (1/0) and AP 13. You are told “search for allies that will help them to attack Toth-Amon in Tarantia”; the only computer player who changed to ally did not help to attack. From author’s description I learned: “And for killing Toth-Amon must click something near there. It damages him very hard.” … ”Toth-Amon will be easily get killed if you try to get to the Crypt.” Unfortunately it did not work for me, nothing near to click on and computer crashes in the Crypt. 1

BALANCE: I played all difficulty levels and had no real challenge. 1

CREATIVITY: All aspects of the game are rated in this category. Some triggers and quests, which unfortunately did not work and parts of the map were creative. I have my doubts that a trigger that turns a castle from grey to blue rates in this category. 2

MAP DESIGN: Most of the map was grass one, but the camps and places of interest were better than the terrain. 2

STORY/INSTRUCTIONS: The author provides objectives, but there is no story besides the old revenge quest for the death of your wife and friends. The title is misleading and there is no indication where to go or what to do, next to insufficient hints, which should be in the introduction screen or given in game by the author instead of being posted by other players. 2

OVERALL: A creative scenario, which has too many bugs.

OBSERVATIONS: I read the posts on the description page, replayed and revised my review posted 02/08/19, it is the second edit of the review and my ratings remain unchanged.

SUGGESTIONS: Try a story; give some hints and directions in game, the objective to find Taurus should have been mentioned in the introduction screen, try a random map and play test.

IN CLOSING: I can not recommend downloading this campaign.
