Upper Amazon

Author File Description
llblair A Mountain range running across the middle of map. The Amazon river crossing the map cuts through a deep gorge in the mountains.

You might do well to take this back to the drawing board and reconfigure things. There is no HC... there are is no trade route... there is no end to the game. Since the AI in this game knows nothing about transport of troops, there is no way for them to mount any sort of attack. The human player merely bides his time until strong enough to waltz in and eliminate his foe. To exit the game, one must resign. After that, pressing the "view postgame" button causes the game to crash. This could possibly be a problem caused by the 1.06 patch; which reminds me, if you haven't loaded that patch, the game will not load.

Balance: 1
There is no balance. After building up my army (despite the lack of extras that the HC usually brings), it took perhaps five minutes of fighting to wipe out my opponent.

Creativity: 2
Nothing very special or different about this game except for a very nice job with the design of the map.

Map Design: 3
The map design is really good and I'd have gone higher if there had been some shallows allowing the enemy to cross the river. The use of your river tools was good but placement of native villages and resources was a little bit predictable as the two sides of the river were almost mirror images

Story/Instructions: 2
Let people know that you are using the new patch as the game will not work without it. If the absence of a HC and trade routes was intentional, let people know in the instructions.
