A Friend in Need

This is a relatively simple scenario. To start, send your Composite Bowmen and your Cavalry across the river to the West to protect the Yellow town. Use the Cavalry to take out the Heavy Catapult, and the Composite Bowmen to guard against incursions. Now you simply need to build up a force to destroy the Red town. 
Start by walling off the Eastern area between the forests and the map edge. Put up two Towers to further guard it and you should be safe from the sporadic attacks from that direction. Build Composite Bowmen with your Gold, and then take your Swordsmen and your Composite Bowmen Northwest and through the forest gap, then North to the Gold mines. Destroy the two Towers and then move some Villagers in to build a Storage Pit and mine Gold. 
Use the Gold to your advantage by building a Siege Workshop near your Gold mines and building a few Stone Throwers, plus upgrading Ballistics, Alchemy and Engineering in the Government Center. Use your Composite Bowmen to pick off any Red Villagers, without them he’ll stop production and go stagnant. 
Build a second Archery Range near the Gold mines and start producing Horse Archers, when you have about eight of them send them North in a group to take out any enemy they find. Keep producing Horse Archers and Stone Throwers, and run them along the cliffs taking out any Towers and enemy units you can. 
Build a Temple and some Priests to heal your wounded, then take all your forces North and systematically wipe out any remaining enemy units and buildings. Keep producing to keep your forces up, and keep mining Gold. If you run out, there’s another Gold mine in the Red town to the Eastern side. Keep going and destroying until you have the win.
