Map Name: Needle Time (aka St Duke Hospital)

Review by Kim Robinson on 2nd August 2007

A rather professionally designed hospital themed map with great attention to detail, some smashingly good new art and enough monsters to satiate any bloodlust you've got boiling away. It's a multi-levelled complex with a cafeteria, surgery rooms and a few doctor's offices (doctors? in a hospital?) - pretty much everything you'd expect to find in such a place. Gameplay is fairly fluid, it's your mission to find a few keys scattered about the place to eventually reach the helicopter on top of the building - it's pretty straightforward and seldom do you find yourself running about with no place to go next. Ammo/monster ratios are just right and there's enough health about to alleviate any cross-fire mishaps. Take a gander at this one!

Title                   : Needle Time (aka St Duke Hospital)
Date Finished           : July 30th 2005

Story                   : You're Duke Nukem and you're running through halls
			  and corridors to find buttons to push to... err...
			  unlock things and stuff. So you can reach the exit.
Description             : It's a simple Hospital-themed map. I tried to make
			  it detailed even if you're mainly running to halls
			  from stairs to lifts to halls and so on. This map
			  is kinda large so you may lose yourself (don't
			  worry, it's not that large anyway).
Levels by this Author   : Wow... so many, I can't count them (and it's far
			  too so I don't remember). I also made maps for
			  Blood, Shadow Warrior, Quake, Half-Life, Quake3.
			  But I never released any.
Additional notes :	  I haven't build maps for years but I finally
			  decided to make this one because I discovered
			  that there was still a lot of Duke Nukem 3D fans
			  (no really, I thought I was the last fan standing
			  on this planet :) ). It's my first release because
			  I keep thinking I could change or add a few things,
			  then some other and so on… so I easily spend days
			  to adjust a texture… then I realize "ho man, I'd
			  never give my maps away, I would be disappointed
			  later"… gees.
Additional Credits to   : 3D Realms, Ken Sileverman, JonoF, Monolith,
			  Id Software, Bloc Party and David Bowie (c'mon, you
			  can't spend hours without music, can you?)...
			  Thank you for ready.
