It's a pretty fun map, and I really enjoyed the final area. It's certainly worth trying.x
An enjoyable map with mixed themes, there are plenty of monsters in the last room and while you can run past them if you want, the fight is winnable for those who do not like playing chicken. Although this is similar to many office building style maps there are areas here that look different and so make this one stand out from the crowd. It is simple but fun and I would say this is average at best, worth a play you might like it more than I did 3/5.x
I presume the "CAVLAB" in the name refers to the Cavendish Laboratory, though I can't say I would have recognized it from the wad. Decent map; above average gameplay.x
This is a (very) early level, one of the first dozen or so in the archive. It's so old that the author has a university email address, at Cambridge no less. On a technical level it's simplistic, although a cut above most levels from 1994 - I assume the early uploads to the archive were the cream of the contemporary crop. There's a decent amount of action, and a fun ending battle, although you can just run through it. Good for a first level, espec. for 1994.x
Bad: Inconsistent texture themes; Texture misalignments; Some tutti-frutti; Some bare rooms; Unpegged door tracks; Final battle can be run past with ease. Good: Many tricky traps; Lots of action and some good fights; Ammo is judged pretty well. Overall: Certainly better than your average "recreation of a place I work/live at" level. The ugliness and overall simplicity hold it back, but there's some decent action, here. 2/5 -VVx
