About This File

The map has no linear design, and it's ubicated in a decadent place. You must activate lots of swich if you want arrive at the end. The map is harder than you may think at the begining.

The level is nice to look at without being too detailed, although the entire level is a bit too brown, and as a result most areas look the same, making this confusing map that much harder to navigate. The monsters are used fairly well. The major problem is the author's switch hunt idea, which he went overboard on. It requires too much backtracking for the average player, and thus most will lose interest halfway through. Still, this author has promise - 3/5.

Haven't finished it yet though I got pretty far, but while it's not bad it would be better if the beginning weren't so tedious with the switches and the low-powered fighting. The overly brown environment enhances the dullness a bit. Later it picks up, but the earlier dullness kind of asks for using saves to avoid it, which is bad. [3/5] ~Chain Mail (06/2012)

While I admire the design and liked the dark brown/iron theme, I found it quite frustrating. It takes non-linearity to the extreme. A lot of yellow/red/blue doors scattered around as also switches to press and something else opens somewhere else. Pitty because I like the architecture. 3.5/5 - Optimus

Feel boring easily because switch/keycard hunting and confusing about "WTF should I going?" problem. The map design isn't bad at all. I was want to give up about first 5 min. but after I found blue key it's not bad... then after yellow key and I stuck the outside of the room that have switch to trigger the two spiderdemons battle...shit happens...,so I just noclip for rest of level and exit, sorry. 3/5 -playerlin

I thought it was very good, the switches are fun in a "memory test" sort of way.

I first thought that this was too much of a switch hunt (I hate those), but in actuality, it wasn't so bad; they were all pretty easy to find, and I never really got lost. I'd give this a 4/5, but there's a huge HOM issue (in GZDoom, anyway) in the small area northeast of the "yellow courtyard"; I'm not sure what's up with that, but unless it's a bug in GZDoom (which I doubt), it's quite distracting. As such, only 3/5. - ZZ
