Old meets new in this basic but well thought out setting. It's a map that will have you coming back again and again. The design is very solid for a furious deathmatch between a buddy or 2 others. Speedy uses some of his own textures on this map. I had flashbacks of original Quake, but this is not a bad thing. It breathes new styles that are somewhat hard to find. Speedy did very well on this one. Playing bots is a blast. Just one thing, the rocket launcher in such small settings tends to get a little frustrating. Maybe the Railgun would have been better.

Speedy has made very playable and original small map. The unique style comes from all-new texture set and fitting skybox (both created by the author himself). Textures are a mix of worn metal and dirty concrete, and they work great. Architecture is imaginative and solid, with complex angled structures towering above. Overall design is excellent and stylish, and everything is in place.
The layout is made of 3 interconnected areas. Being very compact, this map has blazingly fast gameplay. Item placement is very clever and fine-tuned, set up to make players move around the entire level. 1-1 game is intense fragfest and requires both strategy and skill to win. I had few very close battles with my friends on the map and we really enjoyed it. FFA quickly turns into blood bath and provides a lot of fun with 3-4 players. Botplay is also very good.
Kick-ass tourney map. Plays great, runs fast, looks cool and original.
