Review :

Small map with interesting custom texture release from the beginning of Quake 1 mapping...The author became after a progressive Q1 experience a must play author for all is quake 2 releases.

Design: The interest of this release is certainly some custom town texture that really creates something that catch you attention at start with the fist location after interest dicrease but it's still worth through correct layout and architecture but nothing really from high quality there are no movable stuff nor effects it's a quite simple progression in a correct layout we could also regret those dead hallways and corridor that ended into dark and the way the author didn't use enough the light source to create some more oppresing atmosphere

Gameplay: Is well balance but sadly a little to easy except in one or two location there isn't a real aim just activate some trigger that doesn't rely to any storyline, items are well place and even if the expereince flows in a good way the filling is a little mixed because we hopes for something more developped regarding the first location .

In conclusion: lot's of hope from the first location felt a little bit down after, it's still enjoyable for arround 10 minutes without to much expectation
