Calymnomachia

Author File Description
Haspen
File Details
Difficulty: Hero
Number of episodes: 9
Minimap:
Once upon a time my mind suddenly became preoccupied with tragic stories of Ancient Greeks, where, by accident or otherwise, a son would kill his father, or a brother would kill his brother, and so on, these usually leading to tragic (and very bloody) events.

Calymnomachia thus follows such a tragic story, but I won't spoil its plot; the adventure's introduction spoils quite enough.

Have fun! Criticism, praise and bug reports are all equally welcome ;)

Update 3/6/16 (x2): Minor bugfixes.
Update 4/6/16: Even more minor bugfixing.
Update 18/6/16: Even more bugfixes related to Ep.7; besides that added a separate military decline Event that will weaken Caphareus after few years into episode.

Played at the Hero level.

The adventure unfolds, as most do, with increasingly more difficult and complex Episodes. There was nothing that caused me to restart very far back in an any episode. My restart was usually due to something I did or did not do that led to a defeat.

The later Episodes are long slogs (very slow progress in meeting goals). Especially 7 and 8.

Overall, no problems in completing each Episode if you're willing to stick it out and keep going.

Episode 8 is very frustrating. Just as you want to give up for lack of progress you get a break. So you keep going, but it is quite a while before you are in position to conquer.

Cheap, cheap, cheap. Try to make a living selling olives, wood and cheese.

I've played a lot of Haspen's Adventures, so I know he wants them to be playable.

Balance: 4

There was a mix of moderately annoying and nasty monsters with some really destructive gods. Athena in Episode 8 was really destructive for a long time with many appearances.

Military action was minimal until 7 and 8 when it, combined with some destructive Gods, was almost too much to handle.

Creativity: 4

A very nice Adventure concentrating on resource management with a lot of rebuilding (over and over).

Sufficiently complex to allow for multiple lines of play.

Minimal use of natural disasters.

Make it through Episode 8 and you can spend time preparing for a wedding.

Map Design: 4

A pleasant design without being too constraining. Now where am I going to put a Sanctuary to Zeus after I built-out my city?

I really hate clearing trees.

Story/Instructions: 4

It's a 5 star for a very well written story.

I only gave it 4 because I think it is more than needed for people that just want to play the Adventure. I like stories that you must read to get clues on how to play the Episode.

Haspen is a master story teller and non-stop developer of new Adventures! Three cheers.
