  1. I’ll be honest, I don’t really “get” these maps. This is the first one I have played (Haven’t played the HL 1 versions) and it just seems as case of trying different routes until you find the exit.

    I suppose the invention is creating interesting ways to kill the player?!

  2. d_sparks

    Well, yes, actually. The more creative the deaths, the more interesting, to me at least. Maybe I’ve just seen SAW too many times. This is the first map I’ve released, so hope everyone enjoys it. I’m still reletively new to the mapping scene…

  3. didn” t take me to much time to complete. It’s only oriented to see how we can die cause in other end even if it has a purpose it’s not really interesting

  4. Brontos

    Is there a final Answer without dying?

    Cool map!!!

  6. Anon_214554

    I tried this one on.I’m always looking for the fresh concepts fist and going forward from there.While it was a new concept,all I can really say was…well,I guess that was about it.Try it for a new visual experience of cats,but don’t expect much else.

  7. Phillip says Maybe

    Look at the name – it’s pretty clear what kind of map this will be. Apparently, there are clues set within the map but to be honest I think that’s just the author trolling us players.

    You are given a number of choices – doors. If you choose incorrectly, then you die. Not rocket science, although standing under a rocket when it fires would bring the same result as the wrong choice.

    Al in all, a silly 5 minutes, but it’s not terrible. I have no doubt that Unq will say AVOID IT! and he is probably right. I said MAYBE because some people like this sort of thing – I’m not one of them.

  8. Think Twice

    Well, looks like I didn’t “get it” either. I remember playing something like this on HL1, but I think it was different than this.

    The “hints” to me are pretty much nonexistent. You try a path, you die, you load the game, repeat. There’s not much point to playing this map now, is there? I guess the “point” is to see some creative deaths, which I can kind of understand, but maybe this isn’t really for me.

    Overall, I don’t think I can recommend this to anyone, except to those who want to see some creative ways to die I guess…

  9. Roy

    Somehow I lucked into the correct choices to live. I didn’t play it a second time to see the deaths.
    I can’t think of a reason this is fun.
    I expect it is a troll map as I didn’t see any hints. Maybe the hints were if you die, don’t go this way.

    I was very harsh yesterday. Please forgive me.
    This one was not one I would like to play, but you might.
    So give it go if it sounds interesting.

  11. Maybe?

    Okay, I also don’t “get” these kinda maps but this was fun seeing which style of death I was going to suffer next. They should have happened quicker imho but they were fun. 5 mins of dying for no reason whatsoever! Yup…

  12. Unq
    Avoid It!

    This map is awful in every conceivable manner. I can’t believe this is the first Avoid It rating.

    There is no cleverness in the design, no fun to be had. And in fact, it doesn’t even live up to the title because a number of the failure states aren’t death – they are just shallow pits you get trapped in.

    I only played this for 2 and a half minutes and I’m regretting every single second I think about this map.
