Review by Kim Robinson on 2nd August 2007

An old level dredged up from the greasy depths of my hard drive, Dark Gate is a huge, violent adventure through a plethora of different settings, though there's a bit of a hi-tech/medieval theme through-out. The level itself is nothing to shout about at times, some areas are just plain sloppy and these parts let down the nicely designed areas. Texture use is reasonable, the red brick walled room is drab and awful, though there's some good aesthetics in the castle. Gameplay is one of the main redeeming features of this level - you've got to venture through cross-dimensional doorways in order to find keys, extinguish the baddies and find an exit. Simple enough, but it's fun.

	This level is a large single player level. WARNING: This map is 
very large and was constructed on a Pentium 166 w/ 32MB.  This map runs very 
smooth on my machine, and I haven't tested it on anything less than a P150, so 
it may get a bit jerky(where I have imbedded a lot of sprites) on slower machines.  

        After Duke blasts his way out of the Hexhouse(my first level), he 
wanders past the thick redwood forest, and finds his entry to Dark Gate.  This is a
land full of illusion.  The aliens have the power to create strange worlds and
dimensions that Duke must conquer.  Each key gained will allow Duke to enter a 
new dimension of the Dark Gate Palace.  Careful Duke, or they'll get you again! 
There gonna fry your ass!!
