Author’s Note: Here’s a dev map I made for the wireframe’s mapping contest but decided on releasing it as a stand alone map instead. It’s a gravity puzzle map.

    I Had to rate this Consider It simply because it’s not going to appeal to most players. There’s no fighting and no weapons besides the gravity gun.

    It looks like it could have been extended with a few more puzzles and quests.

    Anyway, I enjoyed it and it gave about 10 minutes worth of playtime.

    Maybe?

    Nice to see this here. I’m rating it a consider it as well because it doesn’t seem like the kind of map every one would enjoy. I’d like to say though that I’m planning on making a second one now that I’ve created one and I know what works and doesn’t. So you can expect some thing longer, harder and more complex in the future.

  3. Nice to see ya here Alex.Hopefully you will come back and keep us up to date on your new project.

  4. Play It Now!

    Short, sweet and fun all the way. You can’t go much wrong with this one.

    Maybe?

    A decent map with a stupid end mesage.

  6. Play It Later

    For what it is, it was fun. Just a few puzzles with the gravity gun, but nice since there aren’t that many around.

  7. Play It Later

    There were some creative ideas in this map–at least things I hadn’t seen before.

    If you want a change from combat, this is a nice puzzle map.

  8. Play It Now!

    As you can see by my time, this is a really short map. However, I had a lot of fun with it. There’s two things that bug me, one being that the falling elevator thing at the start that it gives you a tutorial on how to use is only encountered there. The other is the part where you only have one chance to take a cube with you and jump on the rising platform. I had to load a save twice. Apart from that, I really enjoyed it. Some people might complain about the dev textures but I kind of like them (probably because I’ve played so much Team Fortress 2 FortWars). You use the gravity gun through the entire level and there’s only four enemies to fight but I found it fun using the jump pads. I like this map.
