I sat on the hard floor of the yurt, hearing the ill news from the scouts, five went, two came. Lixus, the peasent guard, told me, Ferta has come.
We were a peaceful colony, not a dreaded horde. But still Ferta called us barbarians. We gave them all we had, hopeing that they would stop attacking us. We sent over five diplomats, unarmed. To the Ferta's base. They were slaughtered.
The citizans, enraged, took up what little arms they had, and decided to fight for the forests, fight for there homes
'Forest light' is a B&D game which takes part in a large forest. You have to defeat your enemies.
The game plays as a straight B&D , you have to build up and then destroy your enemies. The enemies did not attack even on hard so it was quite easy. The playability differed from an RM only in the sense that building space was limited. The game was too easy and only the yellow town put up some challenge for a while. The game went on too long (about an hour) as you had to build up from scratch and was quite boring at times.
The game is almost a walkover even on hard. You can build up and attack the enemies at your leisure. Getting through the yellow town's gate was a slight challenge which accounts for the 2. Mostly because of the monks converting away my troops. I faced no danger in the forest despite numerous wolves.
The scenario was moderately creative introducing a large forest map with limited building space and also a few other things like bunk house and fire towers. However it was still more or less like an RM game and 'defeat the enemy' objective wasn't very interesting.
Map Design: 4+
Fairly good forest environment well mixed with dirt, leaves , oak and pine trees, which limits building. A lot better than a random map. Also the city at the south surrounded by ditch which could only be crossed by two bridges. It could be made better with more eyecandy though.
A 'defeat the enemy' instruction with some unneccessary hints about bunk houses and ambushes which were useless because the enemy did not attack. There was also some sort of story, so I have to give it a 4.
A scenario with great potential if it is harder. Include some triggers to attack or spawn troops or something and a better storyline, and you can make it a lot better. In the meanwhile, not recommended for download, unless you've nothing better to do.
