Really nice map with a classic feel.

Fun map with a unique theme. The architecture and texturing are really Greco-Roman, not very Egyptian at all. The construction is perhaps simple by modern standards but the visual design makes it very nice to look at. This gives it a classic feel, reminding me of the Greek MP2 map but with a more grand scale. The level design is great - very non-linear, without being confusing. And it really has a 3D city feel, with interconnected, multi-level buildings. The gameplay is great as well, with good difficulty balance and some interesting encounters. The final fight is pretty cool - it's just a small box with pillars but a lot of gameplay is squeezed out of the space. Just an overall excellent map.

Great design! Great labyrinth like! I didn't find any secrets (maybe because I'm tired and studying for an exam)

Would rate this a 5 just for the design. Now that I think about it, I better play it again and find the gold key to the pentagram on the floor...

But, I really have issues in lame teleporting enemies behind the player. This artificial difficulty was implemented well when there was a fiend teleported in the floor above, giving time to the player to asses the situation. But a shambler right in front of you is just lame.

I REALLY liked the super nailgun part. Maybe create a vibe before? That room was optional, maybe give a message like "please the gods for the reward at your own peril".

Just one thing that happened to me.

Since there were a lot of doors, there was an enforcer that had been alerted but I couldn't find him. I think he went opening doors, and everytime I looked around to see if it was a trap. Now THAT created tension. A lot of fun.

And the teleporting enemy when you enter the room... now that was clever. Really made me go cautiously.

And very interesting how the megahealth guarded by the super knight by the water was on point for me. Had 3 health, ran to the megahealth, nearly got killed. Perfect design, I thought.

F*** spawns.

Greatly enjoyed this one! Played it solo and coop, and had a great time. There were some issues with coop, and a couple places where the intended path through the map could be easily circumvented. Otherwise a top-notch map!

I loved this one! I prefer maps with interesting architecture, and this one did not disappoint. There were a few times I was unsure how to proceed (that is, which way to go next), but that's probably me and not the map.

Enjoyable to explore, with a nice sense of interconnectedness and satisfying combats. I particularly liked the option to clear out some problems with sniping. I found the secrets very difficult to track down, though, and ended up with only one of five.
