TWHL Tower: Source

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Born on the forums of TWHL, here comes another collaboration pack – this time on the Source engine! Mappers were restricted to a small footprint for their map, as if each map were a floor in a tower. A full 3 years in the making, here is the result of a lot of hard work from both new and experienced Source mappers.

There’s a lot to love in this long anticipated collaboration! Enjoy the 18 floors in this solid follow-on to TWHL Tower and TWHL Tower 2! Plus don’t miss the handful of unlockable bonus maps!

A Place in the West + The Wrap-Up Two! – Map Labs Test Tubes #14+15

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

This release combines two Map Labs Test Tubes (short challenges). Unfortunately, one of them only received one entry so it was combined with the larger Test Tube.

A Place in the West, as the title suggests, simply asked authors to build a map based on the popular comic Half-Life: A Place in the West, which depicts life in America under the Combine.

The Wrap-Up Two! – much in the vein of The Wrap-Up! – allowed mappers to choose any previous Map Labs theme and enter. Finish an abandoned project, remaster a previous map, or make a brand new map; all were acceptable as long as the map fit one of the Map Labs themes. Nine maps were submitted.

Enjoy this double feature!
