Here is a very impressive map. DM-Frantic looks good, plays well, and is a refreshing change of pace.


If you're like me, you notice that many great maps have lots of z-axis and flow like water. This map has less z-axis than many of those maps, and requires you to do a little more running around in tighter places. It's sort of a nice change from the same old thing. But this endeavor by Chris 'Plutonic' Blundell does have enough height changes, and enough connectivity to keep you busy. Outdoor courtyards, hallways and rooms with dilapidated roofs and walls, a small tower with an elevator, stairs, beveled shapes and stairs make up the majority of what you'll see.


The Shane church textures were used, for the most part. They help give the place a castle/cathedral feel. The sky is visible in the courtyard and other outdoor surrounding, and through the windows and holes in the roof.


The bots seem to do very well. They will take the elevator ride to the little tower and wait for an unwitting playing to pass by. They get all the powerups, jump through open windows, and never seem to get stuck on anything. The item placement helped make for a rousing match. You have to jump for the good stuff, and hope you're not shot in the back in the process. Plus, health was not just given away, as it was sparsely spaced out.


The lighting was pretty good. The sky lights up most of the map, throwing lots of shadows, many which aren't really appropriate if you consider where the bright spot is in the sky. Inside there are torches which give the map a warm glow. There are many sounds placed about the map, and some music on this 4 to 10-player map.

hallways too cramped, too many powerups, plain at times =(

It does look good, it does play well... except maybe too many items for such a small map.

Ammo Rating: 9.5 
Plays good with about 8 or 10. Looks a beauty!

QuazBotch Rating: 8 
Plays well, but the lighting is bland outdoors, and the NaliCastle textures looked wrong there.

Ulukai Rating: 7.5 
Pretty impressive map, very nice ruined structures, good gameplay, but IMHO the outside lighting could have done with toning down a little.

Neural Genesis Rating: 8 
I like the theme and look of the level. All round its pretty good.

Asis Rating: 3 
I'll be the first to admit that DavidM is one of the greatest mappers around, but this was a mistake. He's made a superb job of the architecture and everything, but in the end, it's just a really crap map originally. It just doesn't flow, too many tiny rooms and dead-end. Pathetic.

Dai Rating: 5 
Asis, you bleeding idiot - this isn't a DavidM map.

lighting sucks, the textures are boring, the layout is.... sucky

Akuma Rating: 6 
Style over substance, just too flat (and what's with those nasty red lens flares? You can change the color of the flare to match the light source :)

Firefly Rating: 8 
frantic by name and frantic by nature. i had some very intense dm experiances in this map. it looks good with good detail (sorry shock) but the fps did dip a little looking out across the pond. certainly nothing major but noticable. good, solid death match stuff. da mutts nuts :)

garrett Rating: 7.5 
lol, good architecture, ok layout : lighting outside is bright, maybe it is just me, but it isn't that bad of a map ... IMO

I loved it. It's certainly one of the best implemintations of the ShaneChurch textures i've seen so far. I didnt care for the placement of the amp, though.

Really great level, bots play very nastily, also liked the jumping through windows stuff, nice...

Who is this "Nobody" idiot who is spamming shit comments? Personally, I thought the map kicked considerable ass, especially the skybox. I liked the daylight effect. However, those red lensflares, like someone else mentioned, are *uck*.

BlackKnight Rating: 7.5 
Good use of y axis fighting. Pond and upper wall textures suck though. Also, as others have mentioned the map is too cramped. Good DM map but not wonderful.

Joeman Rating: 7.5 
It plays well. It's got good lighting. Nice decrepid level. It's just that damn lighting. I like daylight, but this is like, grey light, and it's too uniform. A good map, but the daylight effects need work.

First of all, the design rules. But more importantly, there is no flow. Its got a few good ideas but the change between large, bright areas and small, dark hallways is to annoying.

DN3 Rating: 8 
Very cool map. I was disappointed by the fact that you were restricted from certain areas (the rooftops would be a good example.) But overall, this map is an extremely fast deathmatch experience!

Twrecks Rating: 7.5 
Ammo placement was mainly the two-fer, yet where's the sniper rifle for the rounds in the courtyard tower? "Block Actors" didn't completely remove roof top access making them annoying.

Darkwolven Rating: 7 
I would rate this one a 7 overall and tend to agree with everyone. You want a nice fast paced match, try Iceotoxin with about 6-8 bots or players. Now that is frantic. ;)

ShockFusion1984 Rating: 9.5 
Im Very unhappy with this review, this map is fantastic, not as good as some he has done but it plays so well, very fast on FPS and also fast fragging, awsome fun both On and Offline! its going to be put on the lan comp comming soon where i live, so i think the map should be under taken again with a diffrent reviewer!worth atleast a 9 Well done Chris

BarfLung Rating: 8.5 
I like it - quite original - shame about the rooftops though...

Requiem Rating: 9.5 
An excellent map, especially for the infiltration mod.

LilDoggySnax Rating: 8.5 
I'd say this score is dead on. Awesome layout, some of the best ruined structures I've seen in a map, reminds me of a Wheel of Time map. Lighting is a bit bland though. Asis and Nobody need to lay off the crack pipe. Blacknight...wtf is "y-axis" fighting? That's people on the same plane as you. Maybe you mean "z" axis (like people above or below you)?

One of the greatest.Map of the week at all places.

Better than DM-Compulsive, I only don't like the lens-flares. The lighting outside fits the skybox very well.

Venom Rating: 8 
looks good, plays well w/ teams; not so much FFA, lighting is really well placed and looks good outside. A little 2 many items sinc it's a smaller map. When I first saw the 2nd screenshot (above) it reminded me of Vidars for TFC by Neil Manke. That's really why I dled it since I'm an avid TFC player. Then I played and noticed it was nothing like Vidars, but i wasn't disapointed.

I love the feel and atmosphere of this map, and the gameplay is pretty good too.

Deathwing Rating: 6.5 
Plutonic has made better maps.

Once again.....funability is high.

Nice placement of weapons in proper places.

6-8 people makes this a fun map to play.

Excellent Shane Church map. Bots whup arse, and the level overall looks cool. I especially like how you can see the wear and tear on the top of the level, like loose blocks and the crumbling roof.

Not a bad effort at all. I do like the DOM version better though. I feel the layout supports DOM gameplay easier than DM here. The DOM version can be found at his website.
