Perception for Quake1
Small map started as a speed map from the author that increase the content since he found it quite good to make a small classic Q1 map. the theme is Egyptian, and has an interesting custom textures content, the author had several other good project or contribution include soul of evil. since it was at start a speedmap it's not a huge release but all that was put together make it a really enjoyable release.
Design is well balanced though the use of custom textures and well put together architecture it's certainly miss some more of these extravagant egyptian design and has a to squary look in a too repetitive use of texture but this doesn't really bring down the whole unit and don't forget that it was firstly made as a speedmap.
Gameplay is certainly not let on the side its well balance and provide some thaught places, you need also to take care of your ammo and health. The progression is also well organised, your starting place will lead your progression in the key qwest that are needed for you to progress to the exit, it's unlinear and also take place on several floor sothat you encontered most of the things needed to create a good and enjoyable map.
In conclusion: it's certainly not perfect but well enjoyable and this is what we are looking for...so for the short break it's time if you didn' t do it before to try it
