You start out amid the wreckage of Troy. You must kill a cyclops named Polyphemus and a sorceress named Circe. Then you travel to a sandy beach and get in your ship. Then sail to your island, Ithaca, while avoiding Scylla, and reclaim your palace. there will be enemy soldiers, who think you died in the Trojan war, claiming it, and all of Ithaca. Kill them off and you win, but if you die, then you lose.
I like to use the lightning bolt power on Circe because she shoots chain lightning.
You can only park ships on sandy beaches.
Circe (in Greek Myths) turns people into animals so thats why there are animals around her.
You can follow signposts to Ithaca.
This scenario is relatively fast.
Ok so it IS possible to win - you just have to have Polyphemus chase your hypayists while Odysseus shoots him, lightning Circe, stay close to the south cliff and head straight to Ithaca with all your soldiers.
The screenshot shows the whole map with line of sight everywhere. ->
I've tried to play the map about 4-5 times and I never managed to even get to the transport boat.. It seems to be impossible to get past the Polyphemus and Circe with so little units (even after bolting Circe). I succeeded twice to get to the boat, then only to get sunk by the scylla the first time and get stabbed by hoplites the second time. It's impossible to win this scenario.
The enemies you encounter are just way too powerful for Odysseus and his sidekicks to defeat. Perhaps you can use some triggers to invoke godpowers or send reinforcements... Use your creativity :)
The scenario seems to be lacking a story.. I only recognise some tales from Greek mythology, so that's why I gave you one point here.
Map Design: 1
The map design is below average, but I do appreciate the effort and hope you can practise more and improve :)
There is no storyline. Instructions are also unclear and missing in the scenario itself.
I'm always glad to see new work released here. Keep improving!

I won't give you even 1.0 rating.Though I managed complete the scenario by not fighting the gaia creatures, where is a cinematic? where are triggers ? You can't make a scenario without a good use of them.A scenario is not just placing things and playing.It takes a lot time to learn how to make a good use of triggers and how to create a good scenario.Please learn them by observing the triggers of some epic scenario makers such as yeebagoon.
*** Don't give up and keep trying.My first scenario was also like yours.But I finally learned how to make a proper use of triggers in my fourth scenario - "Giant Killing".You can also see that for reference.
