Probably the best ''alk'' map architecturally speaking, but gameplay-wise, it isn't as good as the previous ones. good brushwork too.

PD: i would have removed the goblins, its the most worthless less frightening quake monster ever. The last fight was interesting, but it has many spots to avoid the monsters.

Nice to look at (though the unfamiliar textures are a bit disorienting in that so much looks unusual that it becomes hard to spot what is a secret and what is just unconventional texturing). But as with alk11 and alk12, it's the repetitive lather-rinse-repeat quality of the whole process that lets it down. Enter a room, kill the monsters, go through the next door. Vamp till all 141 monsters dead.

I've not quite finished my trawl through all of Kona's "alk" maps, but with only one left to (alk15), a strange pattern has emerged: as Kona's technical skill increases, the inventiveness of his maps seemed to decrease. As a result, I see that I have scored the first three alk maps with four stars, and the next three all with three stars. (I skipped alk10 because I couldn't find a way to play it on QuakeSpasm.) I only hope that alk15 can finish the alk series on a high.
