A lunar styled map.
Other than a few instances of EDF styled doors and a hallway stuffed into a cliff face, the map consists primarily of moon surface and narrow underground tunnels.
Overall it's a pretty simple affair with minimal structuring or detailing. A few locations have some pallete work and strong shading, but most of it is washed out and flat in appearance.
The layout is very linear, and aside from a small underwater maze, it's a straight shot from start to finish.

Game play is mostly shooting everything in Duke's path and grabbing a couple key cards along the way.
The weapon and alien variety is pretty limited and combat consists of the walk-and-shoot face-to-face engagement variety.
It's good for a quick shoot 'em up if you have a few minutes to spare.

Texturing/Lighting-Shading: 7/10
Sprite Work/Detailing: 5/10
Ambiance: 6/10
Architecture: 15/20
Layout: 15/20
Gameplay/Design: 24/30
Overall: 72/100
