Like all the jungle maps , this one the computer loves. The computer makes an extremely good opponent. In many ways this map reminds me of the arena random maps that are already found in the game. It is very intense and fun!
The theme of this map was obviously to create a jungle map, which it did successfully. This is by far not a new concept however, and therefore gets a 3 in this category.
The map looks very poor. The base terrain is leaves, which gets very boring after a few minutes. The forests are all of the same type. There are basically only two terrain types, leaves and forests.
The playability on this map is OK. The lack of trees nearby restricts your build order quite a bit. You can build 1, 2 or 3 houses, then a lumber camp. No mill until long after you build your lumber camp. The extra sheep and turkeys help to make up for this lack of trees near the town center. The hidden passageways make it very difficult to wall your city in, making it very difficult to defend your city.
