Atom Week – Map Labs Atoms #6 – #10 (featuring AscentVille and ElevatorVille 2)

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

4th January 2022

The Map Labs challenges come in a bunch of sizes – Atoms being the shortest challenges at 24 (or 48) hours. Back in March 2021, they ran a straight week composed of 5 Atom challenges.

We at RTSL collaborated with the Map Labs crew again for a couple of these Atoms – AscentVille and ElevatorVille 2. AscentVille was an unused idea back in the Hammer Cup days, and we thought ElevatorVille 2 would be an appropriate theme to interpret for such a short mapping challenge. Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, Gravity, and The Emoji Theme fill out the rest of the Atom Week themes – plus a handful of bonus maps as well.

Anyway, here is the full Atom Week release! Enjoy a whopping 57 short-form maps!

  1. Lots to digest here. I must admit I have no idea what to do in Concrete Mini-lith. I figured out how to move in Rite of Heaven but where to go still has me stumped. I guess I didn’t do enough puzzles as a kid!

    1. Unq

      Yeah, this was an incredibly frustrating first “jump” that you have to make – apparently when you duck you gain a little bit of height, and that’s really the trick you have to use here.

      I spent 20 minutes on it and could not make the first jump. Oh well.

  2. Maybe?
    It is good

    I’ve Finished All of the Maps, I found them all very well, but the ones given the time bothered me, I passed them after a few tries, it’s a good compilation, I’m waiting for more.

    If you are going to download it, you will have to give this mode at least 3 hours because some maps are very long, it is a good time killing mode, I found it good, but I know you can be challenging.[

  3. Wesp5

    Again I was deeply disappointed by most of the maps and I believe that these short delevopment time challenges are little more than a lot of wasted potential for both mappers and players! The mayority of levels were just bad, either because they were stupid, unfinished or the mappers still believe that players like to do millimeter exact jumping puzzles all the time. There were some exceptions to the rule showing off that you can do great things with the Source engine, like space battles, space walks or playing asteroids, but even those were not really fun to play, just exceptional in showing their mapper’s ingenuity. I wish all these good modders would work together to build HL2:EP3 according to the leaked document instead of playing around in challenges like these…

  4. It’s alright! This was the first RTSL thing I played, and it’s a lot of bank for your buck (which is time, in this case). Some maps are infuriatingly incomprehensible. For instance, I couldn’t finish Y.A.S.P. after I got to the green room…I might be kind of illiterate when it comes to the puzzles, though. Who knows?
    Over all, I think it’s a solid map pack. Maybe not the best, but a great time killer.
