Fun map so far. Worth a download!

Totally worth a download. A tough map, which pulls its theme off quite well - had me running on low health and ammo frequently, but I never died. Not nearly as amazing as Tyrann's next map, but definitely worth spending time in.

when Tyrann was a baby, he filled his diapers with iD maps.

147/147 3/5. Fun map, indeed, it places base monsters quite well. Brushwork is good for its time. It has maybe too many corridors, but each one of them has its own personality.

The only downside is some combats where you get hit for sure, but that don't kill you if you played well till that part.

Wonderful, well-designed level from the early days. Prison break in Quake style with lots of Rottweilers, Grunts and Enforcers. You won't be disappointed! [Personal tip: Use WinMHColour to create a LIT file with colored lighting for this - the result is very good and improves the interior visuals of the base massively, especially where you find these red lamps mounted to the walls.]

Cool map! It has some sort of bugs that forces you to repeat a lot of times certain areas because you may fall down where you don't want to fall... also some ''not-so-intuitive'' places. But overall it's a cool experience. Nice structure, pretty challenging.

No soundtrack, and apparently follows the "hide all the weapons" school of thinking which meant I had to beat it with only my SG/SSG. Thankfully that was quite easy on skill 1 so I'm more disappointed than annoyed.

Fun map and surprisingly tough. The best execution of the jailbreak theme I've seen in Quake.

Dunno what to say. I am aware it took a lot of work but i totally do not like how the secrets are delivered here - to be honest found only too but that one near lava is really poor in a way you exit the area.

Quite difficult level, moreover if you do not find more secrets you go through whole level with normal and double barrel shotgun that is boring as hell.
