A simple arena where you have the super gravity gun and you face two Antlions Guards. Plenty of cars can be used as weapons and there’s even a buggy.
A light-hearted question this week.
Which character would you choose as a fancy dress costume?

I just received details of a new service from the makers of FPS Creator and feel it deserves a little attention from PP readers. Although the site is now primarily focused on Half-Life maps and mods, I still feel that making maps and mods should be made as easy as possible. The Game Creators seem to share that view and are constantly looking at ways to do something about it.

A couple of distinct areas to find and kill the Hunters and Antlions. It’s not about the architecture in this map but the gameplay. My screenshots don’t show it but there is at least one Hunter and the Buggy is available. I’ll be honest and say I haven’t found the buggy yet and every time I fight the Hunter I die.
I’ve been a little generous when I described this as an SP gameplay mode because it’s really more of a scenario. However, it really depends on how you define SP game modes (More on that in another article). I’ve have published a few ideas for SP game modes in the past, including Chase and Reach Me, with the idea of expanding the possibilities when thinking about SP levels and this idea follows along the same lines and hopefully adds a new twist to the thought processes a player goes through when playing.

“What is this! Gordon Freeman, thank god you are here. Please help us with our major dilemma we just got word from a nearby outpost that combine are coming this way! Stock up on the remaining ammo and take on the incoming combine before they destroy us. This map is all about stationary fighting, you are confined to a building or if your bold the outside of a building. Combine rush in from everywhere and I mean EVERYWHERE. Take your gun and start defending against the Combine Attack”
A simple question this week. No deep moral dilemmas, just a What’s your fav… one.
What is your favourite vehicle from the Half-Life 2?

A very simple premise: Kill all the enemies…if possible. I tried and died too many times to lie about. Good luck. There’s no story and after killing all the enemies nothing happens, don’t expect anything other than a warehouse with a LOT of zombies etc. Don’t bother playing if you enjoy something more detailed. Arena map lovers only!
