Egyptian rebels have stolen a Helepolis from the Roman barracks in Alexandria. You have been ordered to raid their mountain fortress and re-capture it. You must brave a convoluted cliff maze and rescue the helepolis, and then protect it until you can clear a path to get out.

Playability: 5

I found it frustrating the first time, but with a few replays I got it. Really enjoyed playing this little gem, a lot of fun for such a short scenario.

Creativity: 4

Creative map design and good victory conditions. It looks very original overall.

Balance: 5

Quite difficult, but once you get the right strategy it is fine.

Map Design: 5

I've never seen an almost entirely cliff map that looks so good. A lot of new eye candies, and great snow effects. Also a well designed maze, which is paramount in a maze type scenario.

Story: 3

Not a great amount of story, but succinct instructions and hints. The lack of story doesn't really make too much difference overall, it's just a short and sweet scenario that's enjoyable and takes little time.

Overall: 4.4

I would definitely recommend this scenario, especially if you like a combination of fixed force and puzzle, and if you don't have the time for a longer campaign.
