Enjoy my latest game that i even love it myself! This is the latest version :)
Fight through a map in teams of 2 or no teams.
Every player has a base in the big woods, high on a mountain is a shop to increase the strength of all your units.
With kills you gain the gold to buy new units.
And also with kills you gain new standard units.
In the map are some sneaky towers and nature spots that belongs to gods. They grant you power or unleash their power and wrath on the players.
Read the objectives carefully about which god has what powers.
I advice random gods dramaticly because otherwise the gods aren't fair!
Great game, and can have many different ways to play based on each individuals choice of power ups. Choosing to either go more defensive, offensive, for archers, for swordsmen, or heroes is a great idea to mix it up a bit. Very fun to play with 2 to 4 people and still have a fair game that's not stupidly over powered for any way of power ups chosen. As a suggestion to improve the game there could still have been more than just the 3 initial types of warriors, but its still a very well designed game without another class to fight with. Later game though its a little more intense with multiple classes coming in to play. A suggestion for the power-ups is to maybe have a few more for the Eijehier (however its spelled) and have the heroes upgrades either be less of a cost or A LOT more bonus to its stats. (1000g isn't worth the 6 attack when 120g can increase normal units attack by 4.
Like I said above its not stupidly overpowered for any one team, start location, or power-ups its simply what each person likes as a play style.
I haven't seen any other game like this one for AoM, although I have seen something like this in Pimp my Peon for Warcraft 3.
Map Design: 4
Very nice layout, only reason for not getting a 5 is that it doesn't STAND out more than any other good map, but still a nice balanced layout.

Well for a start its a very well created map with great replay value as there can be better or worse players to test your skills I enjoyed it very much even when i failed miserably and lost there’s a wide array of different tactics and such which you could use which makes it challenging depending of how you play. It's also a very nice challenge if you have it 3v1.
Well you can't really go wrong with balance on a game like this, seeing as you only need to make the teams fair and not give one player a massive advantage, most of the power ups were fairly priced apart from possibly the lighting storm, which is an outrageous price, the archer upgrades were also frankly insignificant and you could place carnivores in the shop.
Quite creative using effect's like your hidden units and towers so in that way it's unique but it is still the original "Hoplite Fight" idea where you get units and you kill each other, but has many features which make it very different and also it has many different ideas for the shop such as a power which only one god can buy (lure. Although it's well done you could have put some extra work into the leveling system because its at the moment just what everyone else uses.
Map Design: 3
There isn’t much in the way of map design but it still works very well. The scenery used is good the gold mines and such make it seem all that bit more real, the whole map in itself is very well laid out. Also another slightly disapointing aspect is that there are not any spots near the middle for purely archers to get up on and not be aimed for immediately.
There a great deal of information about the game in the objectives (but I don't suppose many people read them) and there’s the basic outline in the cinematic but not many hints, tips or strategies.
A very fun and enjoyable game which is recommended to anyone who is bored or just wants to have an all out fight, keep making nick :D.
