A brand new map from a brand newcomer to the Duke scene (although the template states lifecycle begun during Duke's early primetime), Hostel is a short but fun map.
Starting from a little alley from one of the districts, the map begins quietly with barely a strong presence of aliens, although after the subway it gets more action-packed. Weapons surely are enough to scope with the vermin around, since I didn't have any ammo issues at all. Attention to the design, style and layout is average enough to be successful but not overly detailed. Effects galore into the common and well-known, and gameplay does not disappoint at all.
With all the tidbits mentioned above, this map does prove two things - a) there are still young players who have an affair for Duke and b) maps are still being made and released with such high quality as this release - in a few words, get this now!

M A P _____________________________________________________________________ Title : Hostel Filename : Hostel.map Author : David B. Misc. Author Info : I'm Belgian. Description : A high detailed level : Two districts connected by a subway as realistic as I could. The map refers a little bit to a movie... without to name it. You'll find some of those ingredients : - A motel in a quiet district (with some surprises), a nightclub in the other one and a dark ambiance. A 10 years old map which I resumed, modified, improved, completed 2 months ago when I discovered the hrp pack. Actually, this level is not that big but it should give a lot of fun and pleasure for the eyes (I hope so...). ...Yeah, I hope you'll love this map like I do. Some secrets places and hidden weapons & ammos. No need to cheat for keys cause they're not hard to find. No headache... _____________________________________________________________________ * Play Information * Episode & Level # : No Single Player : Yes DukeMatch 2-8 Player : No Cooperative 2-8 Player : No Difficulty Settings : Yes (4 skills) New Art : No New Music : No New Sound Effects : No New .CON Files : No _____________________________________________________________________ * Design * Level Editor(s) Used : Mapster32 Construction Time : 2 months Known Bugs/Problems : No known bugs.
