  1. Phillip says Maybe

    I enjoy these kinds of mods. Just a few minutes of simple fun with some gratuitous death.

    I tend to explore and save, or should I say “save and THEN explore”? How inventive a designer is in killing me is the interesting part.

    MostInterestingWayToKillAPlayerVille anybody?

    I only said MAYBE for this, not because it’s bad but because this type of mod is not to everybody’s taste. You have no weapons and while there maybe enemies, you can kill them. Or can you?

    1. Hahaha, didn’t think anyone would unearth this rubbish again!
      This map is NINE years old. I was but a bairn!

  2. Haha. Good to see one of Archie’s “Classics” show up on RTSL. I’ll give it another whirl and a review later for old time’s sake. 😀

  3. Maybe?

    While this is definitely dated, it is by no means Archie’s worst map. This series was something of a hit with the TWHL mapping community, hence a couple of references that appear in the map. While it is short, it’s fairly entertaining and even in cases when I knew the answer, I found myself trying the opposite just to see what would happen.

    There is no combat however and is purely a map filled with riddles and traps, so some players might not be entertained.

  4. Think Twice

    A stark reminder of my humble beginnings as a mapper, the ‘puzzles’ this purports to include are little more than blink-and-you’ll-miss-it left or right choices, with the bare minimum of thought required.
    The one partially redeeming feature is the letter tile floor. Don’t forget that in the Latin alphabet, “Jehovah” begins with an “I”.

    1. I think it shows more than you believe. The fact that you created something with imagination is more important than any technical or design limitation.

  5. Maybe?

    Not really my kind of mod – but maybe others like quick deaths when guessing wrong.

    OK so I played this one and the overall feeling is that is a fun mod. I mean, this is a mod with some funny ways to die concept, and I just think it was made to entertain his author.

    I had to cheat at the first room as i only had 30 points of health so i immediately die with that explosive charge attached to the wall near the ladder.

    The rest of the rooms felt OK, a cool break the floor puzzle and a no way to get out of there alive end. In some points i felt this mod as the Hazard Course 2 mod. But i guess that and the trap are better but also way too much harder.
