A frontier town and factory located on an alien moon.
The basic layout and design of the map are well done. The atmosphere is very dark and gloomy with ambient sounds to add to the creepiness of the atmosphere. Everything looks run down giving the impression that this outpost has been over run and abandoned a long time ago.
There are minimal alien encounters coupled with minimal supplies making combat fairly even.

Game play consists mainly of jumping to areas to find and throw switches.
With the prevalent darkness of the map this can make several of the areas obscure and unobvious.
Upon entering the open layout of the town there are zero clues as to where to go or what to do. Extensive exploring reveals a few doors that may need to be opened, but no obvious way to do so. A few jumps later and the map is finished without entering all the buildings and not really knowing if there is a proper sequence to solving the town puzzle making the overall experience fell incomplete.
