Wonderful Christmas Time by James Stanfield.

A snow themed map, which uses a feature of duke Plus. The first thing to say - the author is well take advantage of duke Plus and as a result there are many innovative effects. This map also comes with new midi track. The author makes a good balance of outdoor and closed areas, as well as good shading. First part of the map is a big cave, where you can see an original idea of the author - the so-called "air tunnel" which allows immediately jump from one place to another, there are also a lot of ladders which you can climb. The most interesting part starts when you go into a big snowy outdoor area, which occupies the biggest part of the map. Here you will meet the new kinds of monsters, which have certain characteristics. In particular, they have different amount of health and different types of attacks, so the gameplay doesn't get boring. Also there is good snow effect imitation (such as snow flakes), which creates an atmosphere of a true snow map.

After walking in caves and snow outdoor areas Duke gets on the alien ship. There is a battle with the final boss. Most importantly - you must have RPG, which the author has not forgot to put somewere near, so don't worry - you will find it.

Secret rooms: There are only three secret places, but the author added useful things inside (such as a freezer gun) so you better find them. The first two won't be difficult to find. The third secret room is the most difficult. In order to get in, you'll need to find a switch in one of the underground bases.

The map is not difficult, and therefore gameplay is fairly easy and that's a good thing. Surely it's worth to take a look.

Rate for the map: The author has done a good job so my rate is 93 out of 100.

Description           : I've always wanted to make a christmas map for Duke, and
DeeperThought's DukePlus was 
			enough to finally kick start my inspiration and get one done. Thanks DT!
			Duke has been dropped into some remote snowy mountains to investigate strange
			activity. He will have to treck through the wind caves, a tourist attraction, and
			an old mining facility before locating the source of the alien activity. Good
luck, and
			Good hunting!

			Also, this map was made for Classic mode - don't play it using the HRP.
