TITTYCITY
Artem Nevinchanny (CK games)
20 August 2012

A city styled map.

The level leans heavily on the influence of maps like Red Light District and Hollywood Holocaust in their texturing, detailing, and strong shading techniques. Game play style is also quite similar, as in key card hunts in urban environs that switch back and forth between open outdoor street sections, and semi-linear indoor locations that have multiple entries and exits.
It's a pretty straight forward progression with a few added quirks; such as the lounge and office where Duke is shrunk and has to platform off of furniture. The map is well balanced between aliens and the incremental weaponry collection. There's a good amount of healing items and quite a few stashes of equipment that really doesn't throw the level out of balance. More fun than looking under your couch for treasure.

Overall I'd give it a 91

Dark Seed
Sanek
12 May 2018

An EDF lunar station styled map.

This is a short, story driven level. The player is expected to read logs and transmissions on view-screens, follow the clues and instructions embedded within the text, then solve the mysterious disappearance of the station's crew along with the true source of their odd discovery.
The maps starts out pretty quiet on a transit ship and then the story takes a turn for the worse just as the shuttle reaches the station. Everything is quiet. Too quiet. There are signs of recent human activity, but there's nobody around.
Read the consoles, follow the instructions, find the keys, buttons, and weapons. Other than locating a couple obscure buttons and seeking out which door unlocks when said button is activated, there's not a lot of deviation from the flow of the map. Expect to do some back-and forth across the facility, but since it's only so big, the short distances and other factors usually keep the redundancy effect to a minimum.
The station starts out clean and orderly, but devolves into a mess from what appears to have been a violent fray. Well lit areas lead into dull shadowy locations as the condition deteriorates. Some more ambient sounds could have really assisted with the visuals and transitions from one location to the next as far as the immersion factor is concerned, but with its nice lighting and detailing, it's quite satisfactory as it stands. More fun than dead batteries.

Overall I'd give it a 87

Castle of Fear
Robert Carter
25 September 1996

A medieval, island castle styled map

This is primarily a Dukematch map, but can be played as single player since it has enemies, and a boss that can be killed to end the level.
Aesthetically it has well constructed architecture, but shading can be over-dark in some spots. The nearly black areas are good at providing hiding spaces to ambush your opponent in DM, but hinder navigation and exploration for the single player. Detailing and trimwork, or offsetting textures, are also pretty absent, so generally the level is pretty flat and lacking in much atmosphere.
The layout is fairly open to accommodate the primary Dukematch aspect of the game. There are a couple of keys, but the locks can be bypassed to access the more remote sections. The keys are there to simply make it easier to get around. As per multi-player, the map is loaded with health, weapons and ammo. The aliens don't stand a chance, but being sloppy or careless can be costly. More fun than a pinecone hidden in a ball pit.

I'd give it a 75 from the single-player aspect

Castle9
UFO & DRT
11 May 1998

A sky castle with a Doom-esque atmosphere. Would be good for 2 to 4 players.

Anybody recognize this map?

I have no template & couldn't find a watermark. Looked around on the web a bit and didn't find this.
So either it is some random, unknown, or this isn't the proper name for the map.
