About

Gordon has fallen into a Combine trap. He was walking through some alleyways of the city until he realised something wasn’t quite right. The Combine had sectioned off a part of an abandoned courtyard which he was walking through. Fellow militia men received forward intelligence of the plan but by this time it was too late and the trap was set.

Barney is jogging (he can’t run due to an injured leg) to catch up with him, although he will not be there in time to help. The Combine soldiers have dumped several explosive barrels in the courtyard from other parts of the city where there has been heavy fighting. It would seem that for whatever reason they have not removed them. Use this to your advantage, every piece of ammunition will count. They have also hidden ammunition and batteries on a certain building ledge and behind general trash deposits. The Combine are desperate to exterminate Gordon and are therefore deploying heavy machines and creatures in their bid to exterminate the doctor.

  1. Phillip says Play It!

    I have to admit I didn’t even read the story before I played this. It’s a simple idea; you are stuck in a courtyard and have to survive until help arrives.Playing this little map crashed my system 4 times. Now that previous sentence makes it sound as if the map was responsible for the crashes. I don’t think so but I followed the intrstructions given by Steam support for looping sounds crashes but this map crashed right at the end after I had finished it.

    Anyway, the gameplay is quite straight forward and there is plenty of ammo and health lying around.

    A lot happens in a small space and space of time, so stay alert.

    If you want 10 minutes of fun play it. If you are looking for a long mods with deep storylines still play it becasue it’s only ten minutes.

    My Recommendation

  2. Maybe?

    I’m estonish by you rating Phillip, I played this one when it came out and even if it was quite fun and challenging (I also got the game crashed at the end)there is nothing really exceptional in this release. Architecture is good but really limited and basic…all there rest is ok but simply organized as an arena mapfor me it’s just

    I understand what you mean but for the trouble to download it, install it and play it I believe it’s worth the time.

    For a beginner it’s good practice at using the gravity gun for throwing objects at the Combine.

    This is a personal favourite of my maps. I think it’s really innovative lobbing barrels at the Strider as well. Lovely looking architechure as well.
