Might be fun with a human but bots are terrible. They don't go for any weapon.

A bit small, but very likeable map. I like it.

So many years past since I had this map, then I lost it and forgot its now, now I found it again, It is the best quake 3 arena map I have ever seen! I have emailed you (Tymo) VERY long time ago, about a year or even two. Time flies so fast, regards,

Very nice map! Yes the bottom is a little too tight but the feel of the lvl is really nice. Layout is good, too. One that will stay on my harddisk :)

very nice map: layout, items placement, ambience and flow being well balanced towards a very enjoyable experience. On 4-FFA it sure is very fast paced, my fav choice.

Excellent little map ! It remembers me my best tourneys on Beatbox or, more recently, lost Forever...

I'll wait for your next map !

Man, what a beautiful map. Everything has a warm, polished feel to it.

Gameplay was intense and grabbing the rocket launcher usually evoked the wrath of Uriel.

Hunter, that bitch, showed me the finer points of electrocution.

The rooftops are wickedly connected on their own, as well as complementing a cool layout for the map overall.

It did seem a bit cramped in some areas and I smacked my head trying to use a bouncepad or two but nothing too serious.

Wicked effort. A very fast, intense playground.

I give it an 9.

Fun cross between DM and arena play. Kinda like Lost Forever in some ways.

Yes, Hunter is a beeyotch on this map, she had me down for a while until the rail started cooking. :-)

Good stuff for a quick fragging fix.

This small map cunningly invokes our memories of Lloyd Morris's Ancient Archipelago (lloydmdm2) to give it an instant air of quality. In fact it's not quite so elaborately drawn, but it's certainly good enough to prevent the imitation seeming like a travesty. And the layout works the magic of making the limited possibilies of a hollow box seem challengingly complex.

The bots put up a very stiff resistance on this map: partly it's Hunter with her LG who always gives me a hard time, partly it's the three-dimensionality of the map which poses an extra challenge for humans but not for bots, and partly, I think, the way that sightlines open and close as I and the bots move about (ditto). My play was mostly diving for the RL and duking it out in the lower reaches, but that is a beautifully open roofscape and I couldn't resist the odd visit.

A memorable little map: I downloaded it over a hundred maps ago yet, seeing it appear on ..::LvL, I could remember it like it was the last but three.

this is one damn fine (tourney-) map (IMHO) - 9

I love the tight little area in the bottom--it looks good, and it makes you decide how badly you want that RL. ;-)

I also like the jumppad in the middle that allows you to pick a direction (e.g. either jumpramp, RG, regen, etc.). Really good connectivity and layout in this one for the most part. I like that there are three different ways to get the regen, but none of them are really easy.

Nice job, Tymo!

Love this map! I never ran into r_speeds problems here and I had pretty good fun with the three bots. The lower part is indeed a bit small but that what makes it frantic

8, looking forward to next map
