Review by: Forge

A very nice looking map. Articulate detailing, trimming, and architecture. Nice shading and texture combos. I like how it kept industrial, but was still able to use different texture sets for different areas, and it all blended together quite well. Lots of little stashes and side-areas to explore, which is nice.

Once again a map of Dennis’ starts off with a ridiculous and over-whelming situation which requires running in circles around a large group of aliens until there’s enough fratricide and ammo drops to clear the area out and get a foothold. It’s like being a dolphin trying to swirl up a bait-ball of mackerel. It takes a few attempts to do it an live. Some people don’t mind, some people are going to dislike it. A lot. After that bit, it plays out pretty good.

Review Summary:






Texturing / Shading







  • Fast paced gameplay
  • Great use of texturing / shading
  • Professional Layout & Design
  • Creative use of sprites
  • Awesome weapon, enemy & item placements


  • Some wall aligned sprites flicker
  • The initial start location can be discouraging
  • A Teleport out of the sewers could have been more seemless.
