Counter Attack :: DEMO

Author File Description
LoRd_YuRi_NiNjA
File Details
Version: The Conquerors
Style: Role Playing Strategy
This is my latest project so far. I haven't put my absolutely best effort in, but I can assure you this scenario is alright, if a little bit short. Hopefully I will add more scenarios to the full version if this DEMO is too short.

This campaign is based on Spain in 1501 (fictional!!!) after it wins the Dark War between Spain and France. You, Ambrosio, are back at your camp "Raw Drums". You are talking about what caused your victory when a scout pops up and tells you that French bandits and pirates are occupying the paths and are setting up camps in the forest.

But do the French really know how to counter-attack (hence the title)? They can't be that intelligent. They charged at a pallisade distraction while bombard cannons made a mess of them during the war. But if we see another French bandit, I fear we will have to wage yet another war, and keep Spain under our control.

Ambrosio and Miguel, the heroes, are currently setting off to the Un-named Village, southeast of the Raw Drum camp. They are going to talk to the King if they spot a bandit, and if so, then most of the coastal defenses have already been battered.

icrashonmyface Well, I got the first dl. What in the world do you mean with playing all that music out of the zip? I only use winamp, and that dosen't let me hear the normak scen. sounds... Just something to think about. And why would there be a 30 second gap?

Other than that, I think I will like it. Here goes.

Bug found: Credits should include Andres_age not Bon. I changed the music really late and it became the "LoC_musica" theme instead of "Neutral Theme". Ignore what that it says in the credits about Bon, and think Andres_age instead...

I've just began on scenario 2, but it will take very long to release if I am doing The End Lies Beyond Chaos at the same time...

ok got the screenshots up...


A scout with a cut throat approaching Raw Drums' camp but dies...


These shops always have killer deals


Life in the City of Serrion.

I'm beginning to try and think of a use for the African area which I didn't use, which is on the bottom of the map.
Ian Gilbert That was sheer brilliance, though this scenario is not historical you almost feel you are there fighting against France. Lord_Yuri_Ninja is right up there with Ingo van Theil, Elf the Hunter, and of course The Kestral
ElfTheHunter quote: Lord_Yuri_Ninja is right up there with Ingo van Theil, Elf the Hunter, and of course The Kestral

Yay, I'm honored to be in the same sentence as Kestrel and Ingo in a comliment (*wonders what campaign Ian thought so good*)

I'm downloading now, but don't expect a review soon since I have my hands full...

Counter Attack is about a fictional conflict between France and Spain in the sixteenth century. Two soldiers named Ambrosio
and Miguel must rally the Spanish forces after France rebounded from their initial defeat. France is now invading Spain.
This is only the demo and the author claims that it was rushed. This is one of the longest demos I have ever played that wasn't
a complete scenario. Although it had a mild rushed feeling , LoRd_YuRi_NiNjA managed to create a respectable scenario.

PLAYABILITY: This scenario has no playability issues. It doesn't contain any bugs and doesn't crash. However it re-playability value
is pretty low. Hopefully the full version will allow multiple paths to or conditions for victory.

BALANCE: I found this scenario a little easy , in that , I didn't die. My heros were beefed up too much by secret weapons. In addtion ,
once I got control of an army , I didn't even have to use them in battle. I played on hard too.

CREATIVITY: I've said this before (when reviewing), but creativity was the bright spot of this scenario. LoRd_YuRi_NiNjA came up with a nice
way of finding items. Furthermore you could perchase an item at the blacksmith. I also liked seeing some well-known forumers as minor charcters
in the story. I'm still laughing over an incident involving two of them. The aspect that put me over the top was the mod pack that turned some
flags and cracks into rain. You also get to control both sides of the conflict ( Spain and France ). Excellent job , LoRd_YuRi_NiNjA !

MAP DESIGN: This part of the scenario looked the most rushed. The towns looked good , so did the paths through the forest and beaches. The
only problem is that that's all there is. The map was nothing but towns , roads , beaches and lots of impassible oak forest. I found this
repetitive.

STORY/INSTRUCTIONS: The story didn't make a lot of sense. France was beaten and instantly comes back for more. This incident was not clearly
explained. The blow of a weak pre-plot was lessened by adequate in-game instructions. I didn't know exactly what to do after I got to the
battlefield on the beach , though. The scenario also had an attractive bitmap. Furhtermore LoRd_YuRi_NiNjA went through the trouble to tell
the player some personal information on some of the main characters. I would like to see this expanded in the full version. Since the story
takes place in sixteenth century Spain , I would like to see a few more gunpowder units. That didn't effect the score , though.

In short , this scenario has tremendous potential . I hope LoRd_YuRi_NiNjA doesn't rush the full version because he is a very talented designer.
He seems to take pride ( rightfully so ) that he can easily pump out quality scenarios at the age of 12. I recommend you to download this scenario.
If you don't ( and even if you do) , you should find space in your hard drive for the full version of Counter Attack.

Later,
