Artifex Four years and no comment...sad. Especially for a fairly good scenario like this.

Saracen Adventure is a B&D game in a desert landscape. You have to destroy the Palace (wonder) of the Persian king.

Playability: 3

A long buildup. The oasis was a nice setting. I liked the river where there was only one spot to land, but there was the enemy's base... Anyway, some Cannon GAlleons did the job.

Balance: 2

Altough the Persians are seemingly in Imp Age, they do not attack you. That's because they are all in walled areas, the only gate in the city was locked. I could have smashed the Palace away real quick with some Trebs. But I wanted to fight them as well, so destroyed their gate. A few Castles near their gate and all Persians were flushed away. You should add a trigger to unlock the gate, as soon my units entered the coastline OR not lock the gate in the first place.
On the northern shore, the enemy had a few towers, sometimes guarded with archers, but all in a palisade-walled area. Thus very easy to take them out.
It didn't seem like the enemy created new units, so it's all a bit disappointing. The fort on the coastline adds an extra point.

Creativity: 2

Build an army, send it to the enemy and smash their Wonder, nothing more.

Map Design: 3

All plain desert with a palm forest. You start in an oasis, which is nicely done, but some eyecandy would be nice. I missed elevations and the enemey town is rather rectangular. Nothing very spectacular. A cliffed coast is good.

Story/Instructions: 4

The story was simple, but adequate. A Saracen chief teaches his Persian oppressor a lesson. The instructions were OK. I did not get confused.

Additional Comments:

A nice game for a rainy afternoon.
