* Description and Review *
A map for anyone who enjoys hosing peeps down with the plasma rifle. A DM map that
attempts to flow smoothly while providing fun gameplay and looking cool in the
automap (the outline of the map kinda looks like a deformed version of ET's head)
Let's compare my review to Liam the Bard's. Don't read this Liam until you've
reviewed the wad! To read his review visit www.doomworld.com and read the /newstuff on the main page.
My review: While not visually dazzling, this map was a joy with 3 other bots. As the name indicates, the map flows smoothly for the most part. The insta bridges are not intuitive, however, and can be annoying, but once you get used to them they aid in the flow of the map. The texturing is functional at best and the architecture is decent. The level played well with bots and was fast and furious for the most part with 3 bots, but not as good with 1. Interesting gameplay strategies should develop around the plasma rifle as its implementation in the wad lends to surprise ambushes upon acquiring the gun. A worthy DM map to add to your collection.
