Beast

for Half-Life

6th February 2021

Your problem: a gonarch. But direct confrontation is not an option. This interesting set of 7 maps lets you puzzle and fight through your mission to make it out alive with the trapped scientist.

The goal is to destroy a monster (Big Momma/Gonarch). Mission is complete if you escape on the train with the scientist alive.

  1. Wesp5

    A great little mapset!

  2. Play It Now!

    Quite enjoyable. It took me a while to figure out what exactly I needed to do. I spent a lot of time trying to get the scientist to go somewhere he refused to go. My only suggestion would be to SPOILER: make the big crate unbreakable so the player doesn’t go through that . It’s fun to see the old environments once in a while

    Fun little mappack.

    Weird design but solid mapping. Some unnecessary invisible walls in the beginning. The creator clearly knows what he is doing. A potentially frustrating escort quest is made fun with the usage of info_nodes.

      1. And I appreciate the mappack 👍

  4. Very fun little map pack. Only problem I had was where the scientist glitched out on me (he’s pivotal in this map), but I just reloaded a prior save and that fixed the problem. Creative pack. There is one section where, without having it happen to you once before and you trying again from an earlier save, your scientist will die regardless of what you do. But apart from that, enjoyable. Also, the explanations via text are really helpful, or at least I found them helpful.

    Double post to include my rating! (first time posting on here)

    Nice mod! It is fun to solve the little puzzles and escape the facility after killing the ‘beast’. Leading the scientist is a little bit annoying but I think it is not the fault of the mod.

    Great little map pack.

    Reminded me a lot of the very awesome entries of The Project Quantum Leap 1&2.

    Here the whole puzzle dynamic is greatly achieved. And the goal of killing Big Momma is just neat.

    The escape has some intense combat, beware to hit the fuses if you don’t want a swarm of Vorties striking on You!!!

    A solid Play it Now.
