Hunnic Paladin's Mystery Maze!

Author File Description
hunnic paladin
File Details
Version: The Conquerors
Style: Puzzle
Number of scenarios: 2

Mystery Maze is a combination of riddles and a maze. In the beginning of the game, you have to pass a 10 question test to get through to Mystery Maze. The questions all have to do with how much you know about Age of Empires 2.

When you have passed the test you are finally worthy to enter Mystery Maze, where you will find challenges all throughout the map.

Mystery Maze was made nothing like any regular AoK game is. I did not strive for eye candy or good map design. I did not purposefully try to get a story behind it either because it is a maze. This is nothing like RPGs or B&Ds, this is a puzzle game. Please keep that in mind of you rate this.

Playability: 3
This two-scenario campaign was nice to play because it's quite original but the long walking outside the maze (where you are supposed to find wonders etc.) were quite irritating. But overall, this was not too bad to play.

Balance: 5
This scenario gets an automatic five for this since there is no fighting in it according to the review guidelines.

Creativity: 4
Mazes are quite original, especially mazes with clues and "Qualifications". This was the strongest part of the campaign. The system you used outside the maze with the wonder-search was also very original.

Map Design: 2
Like the author said, this scenario aims for challenge, not for map-design. I decided to give it a 2 though, because the author could at least have included a bit of good eyecandy and terrain mixing aswell as some variation in the forest, for example. You could mix the normal forest with a bit of bamboo and palm trees to give it a lushy look and at the gold sector you could have included rocks, leaves terrain and so now and then some stone mines.

Story/Instructions: 2
There was no story included and the instructions were not very clear. You just had to get out of the maze. There were no hints or scouts for the scenario, which is obvious since it's a puzzle.

Additional Comments:
Recommended download? Depends. If you want something else than defend-the-spot scenarios, you should. If you can't stand bad map-design, flee before it's too late.

Overall its a quite original scenario with bad map-design and instructions and a bit boring but very creative.
