Review by Forge on April 29-2014

A space station map.
It's very atmospheric with lighting effects, pallet usage, and plenty of ambient sounds.
Construction is also well done with strong trim work, and though there're a couple messy spots, it still incorporates nice texture combinations.
Everything appears clean and crisp as a hermitically sealed environment should. That is until a space craft crashes into the side of the base and things start blowing up.

Game play is a key card hunt.
The level is one big loop with some spokes sticking out of it so it may take a while to find the cards; especially the red one which is quite well hidden behind a panel. Sit down, have a drink, and think about it.
For all its good looks the map has some issues with design. The player has to go down one fork to use the red key which promptly drops the ceiling in the hallway behind them. This forces the player to go through a hole in a wall and take the long way around, through paths already travelled, to get back to the door that the key just opened. It's an annoying way to extend a level.
The player is also given a choice between a long winding flight of stairs or an elevator ride at the end. Choose wrong and it's another long boring walk.
Healing items are about right, but ammunition is really stingy towards the end, so prepare to be nearly out of everything.
