This recreates the final battle of the Punic Wars between Rome and Carthage. The player can be either the invading Romans or the defending Carthaginians. The layout of the map, of Carthage's walls, temple placements, and surrounding towns are based on archeology. Both teams remain in Iron Age. The Romans have an army and a vulnerable supply line; the Carthaginians have a small army but a large walled city. I am learning about altering ai and per files, so I hope other completed scenarios will contain them. Look for companion sieges of Syracuse, Carthage, Alesia, and Masada. Multiplayer also : ; ; ; Yes
The scenario is meant to be played as two players. Yet the author said that one can do this as one player scenario, too by chosing the Romans. Indeed it is not easy to win. Since there is a countdown you can win by simply getting the most points. Well, this is a hard job, too. I used about 3/4 of the time until I had enough points. I don't know how you could beat the Cathargians, this must be a task for a very strong player since you're not allowed to build anything on the foreign land (except houses, walls and towers).
As a single player scenario this one is pretty easy to win (by points) but very hard to really destroy your enemy. I don't think that this scenario will be a good multiplayer scenario because the Romans have a very hard job while the Cathargians mostly have easygoing defense.
The scenario itself has shown up here at the Heavens in any facettes one can think of. It's nothing really special about. Still, without building anything in the foreign land this one gets some other touch and it will definately not turn out to be a massive destruction batlle where your units pour into the enemy city like it is in many other scenarios.
Map Design: 2
Very basic map. There are cliffs and elevations, but it looks pretty much like a random map. Nothing much to say about it.
Only a few words tell the players what to do. Ok, initially it was a multiplayer scenario but I'd prefer to get a little story or something. There's a little bitmap which doesn't tell you anything but at least there IS one. ;-)
download recommendation: No.
We've all seen such scenarios over and over again. It's not bad but it's not good either.
