A very good debut effort, packing a lot of creative ideas into a relatively small map. But I found the gameplay frustrating in a couple respects:

a) Apart from the beginning section, it's cramped and the architecture tends to be sticky. E.g. the part of the map shown in the screenshot looks very stylish and distinctive, but it's easy for the player to get stuck there while fighting scrags and death knights.

b) It's impossible to beat without finding secrets. IMO this is a bad idea unless you make it clear that exploration is a necessary part of the gameplay.

OTOH, the secrets themselves are great. They're cleverly hidden without being too obscure. I think they're also well-placed, in the sense that they tend to be somewhat removed from the parts of the map with the most enemies, so the player has to strategize about when and where to use them.
