Results

============================================================

1st Place: Defend the Island 4 by Lord Basse- 120 pts

Defend the Island 4 - the Invasion of Duang-Zhe is the fourth scenario in the DTI series. Described a 'quantum leap' from its predecessors, this scenario will bring you to a crescent shaped island full of beautiful forests, cliffs, beaches and fortresses in the midst of an all out war. Featuring good theme music ( mixture of Japanese style and Pirates of the carribean ) and all-round waves of attacks, this will keep you on the edge all throughout. A good background and setting adds to the game. A clear winner.

3rd Place: Adventure Series VIII The Horde by Jas the Mace1 - 105 pts

The Horde of Genghis Khan approaches! Rather than trying to defeat him outright, you just have to delay his approach into the city. One of the first of it's kind, the scenario allows you to 'compete with yourself', the goal being to accumulate as many kills as possible. This scenario comes in a close 3rd.

A historical scenario with a large number of enemies. The AI problem in this scenario can be corrected by downloading Gothmog AI and putting all it's files in the AI folder. A spirited first attempt, and the game is challenging.
