Lava Tomb - High Octane
is a remake of Q2DM6. I'm not usually a huge fan
of remakes these days, with all of the repetition of people making the same
levels over and over. It's quite nice to see one being released that has not
been overkilled by ten other people. Since I have not played the original map
for quite some time, I booted it up and was highly impressed with how this
version really covers it. With the outside wall that is partially in the lava,
the original requires that you jump over the lava to make your way through that
area. The author has placed tiny bouncepads which help the bots to stay alive,
rather than roasting to death. There is quite a lot of lava in this level on
that note, and many different spots where you can fall into it. With that
said, I'm amazed at how well the bots play the map.
dmschaos used textures from Iikka "Fingers" Keranen's IKBase
, and some of the EQ2
textures from Evillair
It looks very Q2'ish. It is a remake, yet it is not completely identical to
the original. It does have some new feel to it, and some of the area's were
changed to make it more compliant to Q3A.
I recommend downloading it. It's really fun in Generations
. Get It!
