Review by Kim Robinson on 25th November 2007

A reasonably difficult map in terms of monsters, Driving Home For Christmas is a straightforward level with nothing overly special on offer - design is unlinear, but you must follow a set path. Overall, the map is quite short - you'll spend more time going crazy with your shotgun than trying to work out what to do next. Puzzles are non-existent, just solid action right the way thru. Oh and it's got some lovely new art!

Description           : New Duke3d usermap with Christmas theme and new arts

Additional Credits To : Tom Veenstra, for assisting me with some arts again as 
			he did with City Terror and City Terror 2. 
			Good job for saving the level theme, good buddy!

			Merlijn van Oostrum, for inspiring me for the 'deathmatch mode' 
			in the level.

Story		      : Duke grunted. "Damn snow!" As he tried to get out of his 
			car that has been trapped into a big pile of snow.

			He tried once more and he finally got out of it. Duke 
			was on his way home but one of those rock walls collapsed 
			while Duke drove by, and lots of snow fell over the car.

			"Damn, if I don't get home for Christmas I am going to be 
			friggin' pissed!"			

Additional Map Info   :	Help duke to get home in time to party! He is not in the mood

			to wait another year to celebrate christmas with his *cough* 
			female company!

Note from the Author  : I made this map just for fun, so don't expect a extremely
			level! Enjoy it's gameplay because that's what it has been made for 
			mostly. And I just thought it was fun to release something xmas 
			related to all the Duke fans! 

			If you decide to play a deathmatch in the level, you will notice some 
			things are different. Activating the huge button in the start 
			position will open a teleporter to the town at the end of the level.

			The battle will be fought in the town... I tried to make happen all 
			over the level but then the game would become too unbalanced. :(

			Anyways, when your buddies want to play you can do a coop match too
			(Christmas is not really about killing your buddies all the time I guess. :P	

			Have a good time this christmas and have a happy new year!

			I certainly hope I can release City Terror 2 somewhere in 2004!
