I gave this a 3 because well the playability is great and some of the secret villages are well hidden, but THE GAME IS TOO HARD!! ive played it on normal 10 times and never gotten passed the first boss, i try to run but their no escape.

Balance: 3
Good balance in it, and the different paths make it so you wont get bored of the same mutations over and over, the god powers were great as well, But the thing that brought it down is, if someone mutates like way before anyone he keeps the advantage and keeps mutating and doesnt let anyone else mutate.

Creativity: 4
The only reason this got a 4 instead of a 5 was because theirs like 20 versions of mutation out. But the thing that saved you from a low rating was the starting cine and the unit chooser.

Map Design: 4
Map design was good, some misc object and hidden places to get to villages in, Could of been better maybe with some terrain mixing and some cliff variations.

Story/Instructions: 4
Story was brillant, when all the bolts came down and hit all the archers and circe it look awesome, wasnt so keen on the elephants dieing though, instruction were clear enough for people to understand as well.

Additional Comments:
Keep up the good work, maybe make it in version B that its easier even on normal, because mainly the first person dies at the centaurs even with setna as bait as it then concentrates on them.

I gave you a 4 for playability.. But I'm hoping you make the easy mode in version B.. easy.

The current game is quite difficult, even at normal difficulty, but I still gave it a 4 because it just makes it a bit of a challenge. I did find one bug where a key didnt work, but this was unusual and only happened one of the times I played it. It didnt matter, as we could just destroy the wall manually (it took about 6 minutes)

The gameplay is challenging, but the mutations keep it interesting.

Balance: 4
The game is well balanced out. The enemies are tough, but reasonable, and I really think you did a good job with the mutation paths, each one getting slightly stronger, but not overly strong. That must have required some work.
I like how you've done it.

Creativity: 3
You have basically elaborated on an original idea, so for that I give you a 3. That's not to say the map still isn't creative, as the boss's are very interesting, and the design of the map has a reasonable level of creativity that you've obviously worked hard on.

Map Design: 4
The map is designed so you always follow a clear path, with the occasional secret area. It's designed well to keep you on path, and it looks pretty good too.

Story/Instructions: 3
Your opening story scene was quick enough, which I liked, but I felt the story wasn't elaborated throughout the game. This isn't a problem though, as I didn't mind not having to sit through a boring story.

Additional Comments:
This is a good game, definently worth the download to try out. It can be hard and challenging, so work out a technique that suits you.

Try to send your healer first.

It can be a bit long, sometimes 2 hours+

A lot of problems I find with new RPGs online is just the structure of the game itself. Some roads are too wide, making it difficult in finding where your supposed to go next, and some are too skinny which really cramps the game up. This map was perfect in that aspect of playability. Evelation wasn't annoying, the paths were a nice size and they didn't go in one straight spot, they would turn on themselves and other stuff too. Just because I could tell you spent time on this alone gives you a 4. The reason its not a 5 is because its so frikin hard! Lol! Its one of the hardest maps I've played, but I'm glad its that way, this is a breath of fresh air and I have fun every time I play it because I only have to concentrate on the game, not some annoying skinny trail, etc.

Balance: 3
Again, the map is very hard, which is good and bad. The units however are pretty balenced. The murmillo, arcus, and destoryer have their own strengths and weaknesses created 3 very different types of gameplay.

Creativity: 4
The creativity on this map was great. Marble mountains is a very creative name, along with the eyecnayd that came with it. I've only gotten short of the second boss but the first boss was very cool. The stone tartaria spawns, the axemen, it all went together. There were no distracting bits of ridiculouse eyecandy, just what it needed to look nice and make the gameplay great. This map just shows that a map can look awsome without making a super duper awsome overlapped dwarven forgery with a gaint tree in the middle and an upside-down waterfall. The only creative problem is the game itself, mutation, its total different, yet its the same. You have great ideas, you should try to create your own gameplay.

Map Design: 4
I pretty much said everything I wanted to say about map design in the creativity paragraph but I'll touch upon it once again. The map design was great, not over-the-top and not too little. It was enough to make it look great, and enough to keep the playability great.

Story/Instructions: 3
I admire your cinimatic work, and the cinimatic is great, but it doesn't excuse you from the storyline. During the game there was nothing reminding you of the storyline except of the two elephants at the beggining who escaped. The bosses didn't have to do with the story (I think, was the first guy a stone element or something?) and I was just never reminded of the story at all. On a birghter note, atleast you had one.

Additional Comments:
I hope the last paragraph didn't ruin it for you, because this is a great game, a game I actuelly play over and over. Good Game mate!
