Review by Kim Robinson on 2nd August 2007
The fifth level in Fernando's Orbital Oblivion episode, this one takes place on board an orbiting... space facility of some sort - is rather large and very much interconnected. It's no walk in the park either, you've got to navigate your way from one end to the other whilst holding your own against a barrage of enemies - and access to certain areas require you to use particular items, including your noggin.
As always Fernando has done well to create a sense of realism, shadows are rather well done and the level abounds with lighting effects. There's plenty of other effects as well of course, explosions and moving sectors and the like. In short, download this map - you won't be disappointed.
