Well, I did download it. Can't really say much about this one, it basically a "maze" going arround what seems to be a city. It's all walled in, with gaurd towers here and there. Once to the place where the Yellow player is, it becomes difficult. It is a winding "road" to the top, where the artifact is. Houses are in the way, and Towers are more frequent. There are several priests, whom can get very annoying. I did get mad at this part a couple of times. The little villagers kept getting in the way. The clogged the passage way, and the Towers and Archers killed almost all of my "army".After several attempts, I finally did get the artifact, and won. Fun the first couple of times I played it, but after that it got kind of, well, shall I say boring? It was fun, but I found it wasteful of the memory and time in the long run.

Playability: 2.5. Let me state my biases up front. I don't like race for life, I don't like mazes, and I don't like countdown timers. So naturally this is a race for life through a maze with a timer counting down. Even so I thought it was fairly playable and would have rated it as a 2 but I added half a point to compensate for my bias. The first time through I got wiped out but that was just a recon expedition, I got the entire map scouted before my second horse archer finally succumbed. The second time through I won in 3 minutes. You could do even better.
Balance: 2.5. You are totally outnumbered but with a little deft maneuvering you can avoid most conflicts. Also, the designer has salted the map with Gaia BLP's which you can use as emergency medic stations. Although I didn't need them.
Creativity: 3. Definitely not your random build and destroy scen.
Map: 3. I can barely see a random map beneath the enemy buildings, but the map has been very heavily reworked into a maze like city.
Story: 3. Lots of work in each category here.
Comments: Recommended for download, it only takes 3 minutes!
