Psychophobia by dmschaos

This is only the second released map from the author and it has a real Q2 feel to it. It also reminds me of Quakes DM4. Using a texture set from Evillair, this medium sized map has a lot of replay value. Several open atrium rooms linked by small hallways on the bottom and top floors. The architecture is simple yet well done with Strogg logos and standard Q2 brown everywhere. A couple of water and slime hazards keep you on your toes. All weapons are present, except BFG, with each one in its own room. Just enough health spread around, as well as the Mega health, YA, and RA (which is at a dead end until you discover the easy escape route).

Gameplay is definitely rewarding. All the rooms are well connected with several ways in and out. Although, the cramped hallways cause you to look before rounding a corner as splash damage can easily cover the whole area. A few jumppads (and one unusual teleporter) get you up to the 2nd floor when needed. Readme says no bots, but they did load and played very well for me.

Solid map, get it now...
