Another map from Finland, Foul Odour, is entertaining romp through water/toxic waste facility. Being Steambullīs third release it is pretty solid, but well above good quality level.
Level is based mostly indoors, but it also has some outdoor areas, especially near the end. Level flows in quite linear way, although there are some puzzles that take time a bit, but they are not that difficult to find out. The main goodie of this level is itīs great texturework and good gameplay that feels just right, not too difficult, neither too easy. Textures are placed with care and albeit they are recycled they donīt feel monotous. Lightning is also good, but it could have been better. There are not much extra details, effects or special spritework to be seen, but because of levelīs original design, nice trimwork and comfortable layout it doesnīt matter that much.
Overall, it is great release and well worth your time if you can spend 15-20 minutes of your time. If you are looking for solid and original slugfest in indoor facility that is not that difficult to navigate through, this is for you. However, if you are looking for something special and innovating in details, effects and spritework, you may pass this one.
