Review by Kim Robinson on 5th March 2008

A terribly old level dating back to the same year the game was released, Ty's Place is fun, action-filled and prone to a little bit of oversizing at times. However, for a first release this was still a far cry from most of the other rubbish that was available at the time. There's a working subway (with only partial clipping of the light-beams the cars emit), a couple of explosions to witness, bar and streets to roam, as well as some pretty decent shadow work in some areas. Puzzles are pretty much straight-forward, it's just a key hunt with a couple of locked door/find-the-switch deals thrown in.

Sectors over sectors is also made use of quite extensively in this level, however the other side to this coin is that the later-built sections are lacking in detail. Not to matter. Once you get the yellow key to its slot and get to the second street level, design and attention to detail picks up a little. Find a couple more keycards and make your way to the roof-tops for the nuke button.

Description             :  Duke had just finished closing up the store.  He
                           headed off to Ty's Place for a few brewskies and
                           a little action; time to unwind from the daily
                           grind.  Little did he know an alien invasion had
                           taken over the city he had come to love.  It's
                           payback time!

  This level may be distributed on any public domain site.  If it is to be

  Here is the batch file I created for simple Duke launching.  It asks
you whether you want monsters or not, and if so, what difficulty setting.
Many other things could be added here, but I thought I'd share this little
piece.  To run it, copy the following into your clipboard, create a new
file, paste from clipboard, save the file as a batch file (I call mine
d.bat), then run it by typing:  d map.  Replace map with the level you
want to run.

echo off
echo  1.  No monsters
echo  2.  Monsters
echo  3.  Load Build
echo  4.  Abort
choice /c:1234 "Your choice:  "
if errorlevel 4 goto abort
if errorlevel 3 goto build
if errorlevel 2 goto monst
if errorlevel 1 goto nomonst

choice /c:1234 "Skill level:  "
if errorlevel 4 goto tough
if errorlevel 3 goto hard
if errorlevel 2 goto average
if errorlevel 1 goto easy
duke3d -map %1 /s4
goto end

duke3d -map %1 /s3
goto end

duke3d -map %1 /s2
goto end

duke3d -map %1 /s1
goto end

duke3d /map %1
goto end

rem  The following line calls the batch file again, which I named D.BAT
d %1
