Map Name: SS Observatory
Author: Fernando Márquez
Released: 20th February 2005
Rating: 90

Review by Kim Robinson on 2nd August 2007

A solid space station level from Fernando and the first map in his new Orbital Oblivion episode, SS Observatory'll remind you of the levels from Duke3D's Lunar Apocalypse - dark meandering corridors, important looking rooms full of buzzing equipment and of course the obligatory alien presence. The author brings his own creativity to the level as well, for although the docked space-shuttle is more or less identical to the one in E2L1, there's some great lighting, ambience and sector over sector stuff (underwater) to be seen. Gameplay is quite decent as well, you've got to find your way to the top of the space station through a series of button-pushing puzzles on lower decks - not entirely original but great fun nonetheless. Be sure to take a look at this goodie!
