Checking this out!
Review:

Gameplay:

The map is really hard indeed, although I did play it alone, yet it has some nice features, climbing trees is an amazing idea, giving you more vision and hiding from the enemy. The different items also come in handy, a lot of traps, etc.
The map is short, but yet also enjoyable.

Terrain:

The terrain is excellent, a lot of custom models have been used, no blizzard cliffs (woooo), the town is well made and overall it looks pretty natural and 'realistic'.

Other:

The map is polished, you've made a custom loading screen, a preview image would also be nice and how about colorizing the text in-game.
And how about an intro maybe?

Overall:

It's a very fun map, a bit short, but it has some unique features.
Rating: 4/5

Thanks for the rating Vengeancekael, I've downloaded your map pack and I really like your single player RPG campaign.

Anyways, school starts tomorrow and I have uninstalled Warcraft 3 (including the editor obviously) so I cannot make any changes to this map until winter break when i re-install Warcraft. If anyone out there wants to polish this map up with the suggestions of Vengeancekael, go ahead, mail it to me and i will update this/give you credit for polishing.

EDIT: And yeah its very hard single player but it can be done. It is much easier beating the game with 2 players.

This felt a bit like Tenchu to me. Very fun. The environment was very good looking. The use of doodads was impressive.

Only suggestions I have, if you're interested, is a few cosmetic things. Like auto-select the hero after he casts climb tree ability. The hero abilities appear in areas other than where they are in the learning tab. For example, jump is first when learning but 3rd when learned (3,2 position).

Also, it's possible I'm just impatient, but when I died I didn't respawn or anything. If that's the end of the game you should trigger the end of the game. If not, let the player know when you'll respawn.

I really liked this map. So many people go out there with a goal to do something huuuge and then never finish, or do a good portion well and the end can be kind of tacked on.

This game, while short, is very polished. It's a nice small map, not a super long game play time, but it's balanced, fun and does what it wanted to do.

After a few deaths, I played more carefully and beat the map in single player, completing all the side quests. Fun stuff :) 5/5 from me.

This sounds exactly like the kind of map I like, a stealth-focused skill based game, but once I select my player 1 hero in the game, while I tried single player, My computer froze...:vw_wtf::vw_sad::vw_death::goblin_boom:

This map is fun. It leaves out a lot of ideas but it is inspiring too.
It could be made such that there would be rounds to complete with new enemies and traps every time having to start from the corner at the beginning. Every round should bring new dangers and make the player think how to complete it.
