A cute and tiny DM map. Once again set in an industrial styled place.

Gameplay is solid, it works, it plays, and it's OK fun. But it's also very small and simple. One room, a few catwalks and ramps, and that's it. It's straight forward "hardcore" gameplay, but not in a bad DM-Morbias type of way. 2.25 floors of Z frag stuff, and some health vials around to give away your position.
And it would have been nice if the planks in the middle made some sound when stepping on them.

Visuals are kind of the same. Solid, interesting to look at and polished-stylished feeling, but you when look past those elements it's just another industrial map, made out of all kinds of elements you saw dozens of times before. Brick walls, wooden floors combined with concrete, your regular types of ramps and trimming, broken planks, hanging plantstuff, etc.
It has a nice skybox though, not uberspecial, but it does feel new. And it's casting nice shadows trough the windows. The windows itself also nicely fit the building, they fit the bricks with the strong bunker style feeling. The rest of the architecture was nice too, no boring spots, no empty spots, and lots of flowing elements.
Lighting was fine too, but on a few spots the highlights from the lamps could have been a little stronger then they were now, 'felt a little soft.
Textures are made out of your regular UT texture packs, all were done fine, but if the author used a few custom textures he might have created a much more unique environment. A custom brick, custom pillar and custom wooden tex and you would suddenly have a whole new map and look, and it wouldn't even take that much time to do.

There's also some sound around, and the music fits OK.

All in all the map is solid and polished (something that's getting rare in these days, looking at the majority of the UT2003 maps..) But it's certainly not unique nor does it offer anything you haven't saw before. If you're looking for a well made nicely looking small dm map, here you have one.

Nice old-factory-styl map. It's more of a One on One. And the only negative things are those birds or what ever is making that awful non stop sound. The first 20 seconds it's not so bad, but after a minute or so you prefer to seek and kill the birds. Overall a medium level.

Very slick map, nice 1on1 or even 3-4 player map. You certainly add style, gameplay and good balance to simplicity. I look forward to your next work.

Well the only thing that bugged me was that this map is almost a square, altough a very well decorated square I might add... The skybox is beautiful, the map most certainly has a atmosphere to it, and also the author has textured the map skillfully...I believe that there are no problems with lights alltough the coronas are a bit too much. Also there could be more special effects to make the map feel more realistic. Alltogether this is a map above average, but it probably is not a keeper even if it is beautiful...

Played this map with three bots on experienced. Gameplay sure is fun. Rocket launcher is most useful here. Flying chunks of Loque all around ha-ha. Lighting is good. Nice visuals. Good texture use.
And all this was built in 8 hours according to the readme. Impressing. I wonder what the author can achieve spending more time on a map. Good work misterrioes!

It's pretty decent for it's size, although I don't care for the weapon selection. It's more of a classic melee map, replace the minigun and biorifle with the flak cannon and pulse gun, and it might prove to be more fun.

Definitely one of Rioes' better maps, with a great atmosphere. Gameplay is good, and definitely fun for tournament matches. I like!
