Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half Life 1, 2 and 3

This is a single player map for Half-Life (published in Joystick n°128) It was the author’s first finalized and completed map. It is short but interesting, it is not a succession of rooms with monsters in each; moreover there is little combat. It is from this map that the desire to create Mad crabs 1 and Mad Crabs 2 came about.

Maybe?Avoid It!Think Twice


  1. It was a well realized map with small stuff to create ambiance, it’s just 10 min of playtime but really enjoyable and worth regarding the small download

    BTW I really things that the file to madcrab 2 isn’t the correct one since there wasn’t a release of it

  2. if you d/l mad crabs 2, all the info in the readme suggests it is in fact mad crabs 2.

  3. but, they could be wrong ???? I dunno.

  4. bumtown

    it’s a nice map.

  5. shawn

    Short, sweet.

  6. Mel

    Short game without a great deal of content just a few aliens and a Grunt shoot out final scene. Design basic and boxy with nothong new. OK for a few minutes of fun.

  7. fadi

    it dose not work

  8. What doesn’t work?The download works so you must not pout the mod in the half-life\valve\map folder and typed
    map alien in the console.Either that or you have some other problem with your game

  9. Avoid It!

    There’s not much to this map, it took me 4 minutes and a minute of that was waiting for some water to slowly rise so i could climb into an out-of-reach vent. The combat is nothing special, you fight a few aliens and there’s a grunt fight at the end. The mapping is mostly boxy but there’s some pretty interesting stuff going on with the environment like the aquariums and being able to see the exterior of the spaceship and into space.

    I feel a bit guilty giving it an Avoid It because it isn’t bad at all, but for 3 minutes of gameplay and one minute of waiting I don’t see any reason to recommend this.

  10. Think Twice
    You are ALIEN’s PRISONER

    Your Mission is to escape the alien ship
    But you must kill the marines because there’s no way to convince them to go with them
