Play Information ---------------------------------------------------------------

Description : Some of you probably already know that I'm specialized in space maps,
but it's since a while that I wanted to make a gothic non space map.
But not in the classic gothic style, in fact Dantesca is a mix between gothic and art-deco style.
It's a medium sized level inspired to the first book of Dante Alighieri's "Divina Commedia".
The main character is a statue in the main area that represents "Cerberus",
the 3-heads guardian monster of the hell's gates. You can jump inside
him and have some funny railtime, but
pay attention... cerberus has the habbit to close his mounth.And there is another trap (even if you
can't define it a trap) it's a passage for... discover it by yourself!
