The Four Priests is a simple B&D scenario where you must crush your four enemies' bases with limited gold. Sometimes the bases threw out some challenging units at you when you breached the walls, but for the most part it was just watching catapults knock down towers, which isn't very fun.

Balance: 2

Though you have limited gold, you still start of with plenty of resources. You begin in the Stone Age, but you have ample resources to get to Iron quickly, and there is no defending in the scenario. Catapults are probably your best bet for knocking down the towers, they also counter quite a few of the enemy units, though it's full tech tree, so you have plenty of options, e.g. low gold elephants. The enemy bases were a bit overpowered, as was yours. I used up all my gold, but won comfortably, but the limited resources do mean you have to fight with some care.

Creativity: 1.5

Not a lot of creativity here. The level was slightly unique I suppose, in that you and the enemy were very well defended.

Map Design: 1.5

Blank grass map... The bases had an interesting design, but all rather similar and symmetrical.

Story/Instructions: 2

No story, adequate instructions. A couple of small spelling/grammar errors. One hint, which isn't much use. And no bitmap.

Overall: 1.8

A rather simple scenario from a new designer. Okay if you want to kill an hour, but lacking a lot in the artistic side.
