Challenge Series 2009: An Introduction

Left to our own devices we often fall into a rut. We do the same thing, over and over again.

The thought of changing seems painful and hard work. Sometimes situations force us to do something in a different way and it’s great, we wonder why we didn’t make the change sooner.

There is a phrase in English: “A change is as good as a rest”.

The thought of resting from gaming is a scary one for me, so let’s try a change!

Starting outside a small cabin, isolated in the woods, you make your way through various areas and rooms, some with traps.

Use your observational skills to locate the solutions to puzzles and progress.

A treasure chest awaits those skilled and smart enough to find it.

Here is another short map from Miigga.

It’s no different from the others posted so far; keep going until you find the end.

No story, no clear objective, bu fun nevertheless.

Plenty of action in this one.

It’s Ours Now takes place shortly after the defeat of the Combine striders at the end of Episode 2.

The level is set in White Forest at a base formerly used as a Combine base of operations.

The player must fight off the Combine that is attempting to retake the base. The objective of this level is to provide the player with a three to four minute transition between one map and another while giving the player a shooting mini-game in the process.

Strider Mountain

for Half-Life 2

AT 30,000 FEET… you are almost 6 miles (9.7 kilometers) above sea level. The human body is not made for these conditions.

Temperatures are can plummet to -60F (-51C), the brain is starved for oxygen and each step is a new experience in pure agony.

It’s difficult to breathe. It’s difficult to think. It’s difficult to move. And you still have to endure another 444 feet (0.14 kilometers) to get to the peak.

So much for the good news.
