Another first-time mapper! ;) Good harvest this year!

Very nice for a first map - a creative take on the 'castle' theme - with a strange mix of 'base' and 'torture chambers' thrown in... Oh, wait, that's in the concept of this map...

Good persistance in the theme of this map - and the mapper has played a bit with slanted brushes as well.

There is only a small, should we call it 'continuity' bug in this map - all the windows with 'sky' texture behind them are set so low that you can look out - and not see walls beyond them! But this is a minor gripe.

Another impressive first map. Another mapper that i expect to show us great things in the future!

Thanks for your efforts; thanks for sharing!

Very nice level design and I can see this mapper creating some very impressive ones in the future.

Just 3 observations: 1. The music is not that good, it gets annoying rather quickly and doesn't go along with the vibe of the whole level, imho. 2. Lighting, lighting, lighting. Experiment with a darker mood and place strategic lights to improve the mood. 3. Agree about the sky textures. Try to keep continuity where it is obvious. Although it is forgiving, some widows with sky texture are placed in such a way that it is obvious there should be something visible beyond them.

Awesome job mate!!

Great Map. Played it on Skill 2 and found 1 Secret. Got stuck under the gold key once which broke the map. I liked the guitar riff very much, but as rchavp said. It gets a little repetitive quick.

A pitty that you cant go back for secret hunting after entering the sewer.

Thanks. Had a lot of fun.

I wasn't as convinced by this first-timer as some of the comments above, but it was fun to play, which means the first hurdle was cleared. For a castle of secrets, though, it was very low on secrets.
