Review by Kim Robinson on 1st August 2007

An interesting one with new (alright ripped) art and a couple of new sounds - it's set in a luminously challenged castle with plenty of puzzles, quite a few enemies and a whole lot of firepower with which to wipe them out. The quality of design varies from place to place and there's not an awful lot of detail either, but the gameplay is more than reasonable. Take a look!

Description           : A kind of Tomb Raider meets Deathtrap Dungeon. A nightmare of
a castle                           that you have to escape from. This is the first
level of what will                               be a 8 level TC. I don't know if I
will release any others seperatly. 

Additional Credits To : Jon Hunt, Duketape, Speed, T.S. Bolten, Harry, and anyone
else at TOTALLY                         REDNECK who has given me their best advise
and put up with my flurry of                          stupid questions as well as Ben
Crenshaw (AGES OF EVIL TC) for his input                         about art which
saved me a terrific headache, and my sweet wife who                             
supports me in everything I do.

*Important Information*

Installation           : Make a back up of your USER.CON, unzip contents into DUKE3D,
pick the                            zip that matches your version (1.3 or 1.4/1.5)
and add contents to the                           folder. Play, Repeat, Rinse.

Important Notes        : If anything I create offends anyone then TOUGH S#!+. If
anyone finds 
                         I've used their art without permission and has a problem
with that, you                          should be flattered I liked your work enough
to use it. If anyone                                actualy LIKES this level let me
know. Email is free. If anybody wants to                          use this as a basis
for another level then feel free. Imitation is the                           highest
form of flattery.
