Review by Kim Robinson on 3rd August 2007

The latest map from Devastator, surely the biggest, baddest alien hive you'll ever come across. Your mission is basically to wreak as much havoc as humanly possible in a totally interactive, alien environment - sounds easy, but the local population may well start up petitions. Level design is brilliant, gameplay rocks and it's mostly pretty clear where you have to go. Puzzles are quite logical and there's only a few really annoying combinational locks. My only major gripe was the 'Too many sprites spawned' error which dumps the player back to the desktop all too frequently - though there's a few handy tips in the readme for circumventing this. With three different exits there's plenty of replay value, so get in there and get your arse kicked have fun!

·sometimes it can kick you out telling that too many sprites spawned and here are
advices to avoid this:
1. DO NOT blow up first hive until you have no blue card, and be sure to save before
it. ( go left when you are arrived to reach hive ) try blowing up some eggs and only
then these exploding barrels.
2. DO NOT blow up the reactor if first hive isn't blown up!
4. for the last case if it seems totally screwed -- you don't have to blow up
anything except reactor and most upper level of Spire (you press button and 2 yellow
barrels appear from the floor, blow up them to fing yellow key later. )

· Map has 3 differrnt exits:
-Kick da Queen
-fight a legion of ocrtabrains and escape on Fish-like alien ship 
-Blow up submarine's reactor, and then escape in portal ( go down in area w/ hanging
newbeasts )

*** builder notes ***
you may skip this part, no valuable info here...

  ... poor fish.. i tried so hard to make able player look throug its eyes, and did
it unbuggy.. but in the end i discovered that i made something wrong and it is
completely buggy outside ( see in build for detail )...
  I tried to kick out 7 computers in starcraft, playing for Zerg and i noticed such
structures like Lair and Spire and told myself " Why they are not in build yet?" and
now they are! spire -- that spining structure outside Lair -- area just before queen
  Perfect Circullar structure looks much more better than made by hands, and it
really is.
  if you place more than 4096 sprites build will probably hang
  same goes for other limits
  look into periscope in the beginning i find this "movie" cool
*** end of builder notes ***
