Scram Half-Life – In Development Mods

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

SCRAM is a modification to the original Half-Life single player game. It does not have any new content such as enemies, weapons, or maps.

The intent is two-fold:

1) Make HL more challenging, Enemies are tougher, faster, and smarter. Although your weapons are just as strong as in normal HL, you can’t carry as much ammo for most weapons, particularly on the higher difficulty levels.

2) To offset some of the increased challenge, the real heart of SCRAM is a reward system. In each map (after the tram ride) there are 3 lambda nuclei that can be found. Finding the nuclei can earn you rewards (ammo, health, armor) at the very end of each map. Find one and you might be rewarded – find two or all three and you’ll definitely get a nice gift at the end of the level.

Caves – Half-Life 2

for Half-Life 2

In this short map, you have to work your way through a variety of caves until you Meet Barney.

He seems to be held captive. Once released, he is supposed to open a door that you hope leads to freedom.

However, things don’t work out as expected. Good Luck.

Scramble – Half-Life

for Half-Life

Headcrabs. Think you hate them now? Wait until after you’ve played this.

There are 5 Lambda symbols to “collect” and more headcrabs than you can shake a crowbar at.

Run, dodge, twist, jump, kill – do whatever you have to to find and reach those symbols.

The Order to Play HL Games

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

I’m working on a Half-Life FAQ page that would answer the most common questions posted on the half-Life Reddit page.

Since I’ve been a regular there, about 6 months, I’ve seen a lot of the same questions asked, especially around the Steam sales times.

One such question is Shall I play the games in chronological release order?
