Hell's Odyssey (unfinished)

Author File Description
Renegade Warrior
File Details
Version: The Conquerors
This is the unfinished version of Hell's Odyssey, a scenario I was working on some time ago. I finally gave up work on it and decided to release what I'd done of it thus far as a utility instead, as I'd incorporated a couple of my own ideas into it (such as the Path of Flames and the Lake of Sorrows).

This is my very first upload. All comments and/or criticisms are welcome.

Hell's Odyssey (unfinished) by Renegade Warrior -- This utility/unfinished campaign is to show you some ideas the author had, such as Lake of Sorrows and a Path of Flames.

Utility-- This utility does not vary on scenario types. I can see both of the featured tricks being used in almost any type of campaign. There actually are many ways this utility can be useful for your campaign, but it might have been better if they had a step by step guide on how you can use that certain trick. The Sea of Sorrow trick has many uses (swimming units, drowning units), as does the Path of Flames.
+ Plus Points +
¤ Features 2 useful tricks
- Minus Points -
¤ Has no tutorial to do the tricks
¤ Is more of a scenario than a utility

Creativity-- The units on water trick is old, but I found the Path of Flames to be very creative. I have not heard of somebody using that in a scenario. The design of the map was also very creative. The wall structure makes it feel like a maze or a dungeon. Unfortunatly, it would have been nice to have a faster guide in this utility. A Teutonic Knight is not a very fast unit. And the map design was poor, with only dirt 1, water, and road terrain.
+ Plus Points +
¤ Path of Flames is creative
¤ Dungeon feel that sets the scenario mood
- Minus Points -
¤ Units on water trick is old
¤ Slow guide

Quality-- This map has no bugs or flaws that I have seen. This scenario also has no extras (sounds, bitmaps), but is not going to be deducted because of the lack of these two extras. This utility does, however, has a low visual impression, with only road terrain, dirt 1 terrain, and shallow water.
+ Plus Points +
¤ No bugs/flaws
- Minus Points -
¤ Poor map design

Instructions-- This utility was more of a scenario, as intended by the name and description. It had no instructions on how to do the tricks, which is a major downfall for this catagory. But the scenario part of it was a little more challenging, but not how a utility is intended to be like.
+ Plus Points +
¤ Challenging gameplay, making this utility more entertaining
- Minus Points -
¤ No instructions
¤ No Step by Step telling you how to do certain tricks

Final Thoughts-- This utility has very creative ideas for a scenario that makes it exciting to play. It is sad the author is not going to continue this as a campaign. If you are looking for ideas for a campaign, be sure to download this. It is packed full of ideas.

Good luck to the author on designing/utility creating,
