Review by Forge on June 11-2013

An EDF space station styled map.
Very typical set of corridors, control rooms, crew quarters, launch bay, and some lifts. Other than a few ambient sounds and some ports to look outside, there's not much in the way of ambiance.
Construction is very basic and simplified. Rooms are either plainly adorned and empty or just cramped with too much stuff in a small area.
The layout is a simple linear path; go to a small side passage or room, collect a card, step back out in the main corridor, use the card to access a lift to the next level. Continue and repeat until all card colors have been used and the teleporter to the escape shuttle is reached.

Game play is mainly unlocking doors and lifts with keys and small button puzzles.
Everything is in the open and easy to find. All the keys, switches, and locks are relatively close to each other.
Combat can be pretty tough initially. Ammo and health are incredibly limited for roughly the first third of the map. The more difficult encounters aren't unfair, but usually involve ambushes waiting on the other side of closed doors. This has a tendency to chip away at hit points and waste precious ammunition if not careful.
Deeper in the map the boxes of bullets are more frequent, but healing items can still prove a bit stingy to find.
