Trick or Treat!

2-4 players | Reviewed by Fat Controller - Sunday 4th November 2001 @ 2:13pm

This map makes me hear grinding guitars. Metal of some kind. Or maybe it's that mod tune Zed that I can't find on the net anymore. Whatever.

Xenon's little festive slayground is a small set of curvy, richly decorated chambers wrapped around a main three-level atrium. Bedecked in a riot of Zerstörer and Ogro textures, with hints of Kingpin, Doom II and Daikatana thrown in, it's quite a feast for the eyeballs.

Inside all this eyeball candy reside one centrally placed rocket launcher, grenade launcher, both nailguns and super shotty, along with all armours, megahealth and the mighty Quad.

Play, as you might guess, is furious. There seems to be a deceptively straight path to become a red-clad rocket-toting megahealthed Quad monster (mmm, must be the "treat"), but remember that everyone else's thinking the same thing (ah, there's the "trick"!) Kick back, relax and smack the Quad ho' with a rocket as soon as he gets it.

I'm a red-clad rocket-totin' megahealthy QUAD MONSTAAAA..... *does heavy air guitar lick*

What?

Randyom: Um, I really didn't understand what you meant there, but nm :) What is "Solaris", btw? It's just that I had that near the top of name suggestions for my next level... I thought it sounded cool, but if its the name of some OS or custom engine then I wont bother :)

I'd also appreciate if someone pointed out where the doom2 textures are; I've heard two people mention it now and dont recall choosing any :)

Everyone else, thanks for the positive feedback. I dunno, I'm not really sure I'm content with a 5/5 when it seems overrated. I'm definately gonna try and to be more innovative in layout with future realeases, for a start. I'm getting attracted to DM mapping more and more purely by the challenge it offers of pleasing as many people as possible :)

#14. Solaris ^

It's the Sun Microsystem OS. It exists a quake port from id for this OS.

#15. yes, DM is the way forward... ^

Doom 2 Textures

That spine-ish texture running around the walls can be found in Doom 2.
