Grillo Works is a small two level industrial themed frag-box. Built for 1on1 matches, it can hold maybe 3 players but any more than that and the game becomes just silly with near immediate death upon spawning. It's a very small map, but there's nothing wrong with that in this case. It's small because it is suppose to be small, and it works very well as such. The inclusion of well placed jump pads and obstacles such as walls and columns makes the gameplay just about perfect. There is no time when I felt like the game was unbalanced, it's just too small for that, and there's very little armor to make you too strong, if you know what I mean.
I've never seen any other maps by Commander Keen, but this one seems just too good to be an initial offering. If it is your first, I congratulate you CK! Please bring more! The only possible complaints I could find would be aesthetic. These are very minor and have no effect on the gameplay whatsoever. Overall the map looks great with everything that is included just where it should be and looking as it should look. I realize that description may sound strange, but it's accurate.
My suggestion is that if you've got a hankering for a hunk of 1on1 fragging, download this map immediately.
