As it turns out the word 'divadlo' is Czech for theatre, so it's no surprise that this level is set in and around one. Brilliant in conception and design, Divadlo looks terrific and plays well - you'll be pitted against a barrage of enemies with (initially, at least) not a lot of firepower at your disposal. What the map lacks in different places to visit it more than makes up for in originality and gameplay, with some interesting and sometimes frustrating puzzles.
More than once you may find yourself in a situation where the next place to go is not very clear, finding the red card in particular is quite difficult. A word of advice: the hidden control room adjoining the office via the ventilation duct contains what you seek, you just have to look for it. After the whole red card nonsense and pulling off some dangerous moves you'll wind up in an alien control room with a multi-switch which I couldn't get to work in EDuke32 - your mileage may vary. At any rate, clipping through the doors it controls works a treat.
Shading, lighting and attention to detail are all pretty top-notch, with some nice effects thrown in for good measure. Despite the pretty constant ambient light in the larger areas it's still a great play - check out this goodie today.
