Armatron

1-on-1, 4 FFA players | Reviewed by Paul - Monday 11th June 2001 @ 5:44am

A more adventurous style map from moRgoth after Infernal Base. A cornucopia of textures from IKBase and Rubicon make up the bulk of the map. There are a couple of clashes but for the most part the mixture of texture sets works well. There are the obligatory crate stacks but they don't impede play so they're more for decorative purposes (which makes a change). The architecture isn't that detailed with the texturing doing the work here but its still visually appealing.

The layout is made up of two double-layered rooms that are connected via a small hub section containing a LG and MH, which has been placed on a platform on the opposite site of a section of knee deep lava that is a piece of piss to jump. There are couple more dabs of open lava but you'll have to really try in order to toast yourself.

The lower bowels of the map are rather high and are just about rocket jumpable if need be. Clipping is good although I got buffeted about a bit until I got my bearings. Since the map isn't that big a low player load is more suitable.

It may be decorated well, but technically this is a box map.

noclip outside, then agree with me.

It's boxed because Morgoth was making this for long time and he get lots of errors.

One of them was leak, so he decided to box map to kill him.

Its probably just me, but this map brings back memorys of the grand old days of mapping. Ahh... nostalgia
