Map of the Week #40

"A moderator is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to!" - JAG

Sorry for the delay with this one! Let's not delay this any further and get straight to business.

As fun as long maps can be, sometimes we just have to take a break and enjoy something shorter and simpler – like with today’s “Fish Out Of Water” by RodigroW.

This level has us infiltrating a nightclub to assassinate a target – a Patriarch who, ironically, is the least dangerous threat in the level, as it’s packed to the brim with all sorts of far deadlier enemies who can actually open doors. The map’s very close-quarters, so aiming for the heads as enemies run at you can be challenging.

You can’t exactly just skip past everyone either – there’s a vent system you can take advantage of, but every exit is in clear sight of every enemy, meaning that using vents without taking undead out or distracting them is a huge risk. You have to think carefully about every move you make.

However, the only objective in the map is to kill the Patriarch, meaning if you’re good enough you can eliminate him while leaving the other half of the club untouched. The level’s a little linear, with two main routes that lead to the target, but it’s still a very engaging level that can provide a decent challenge without being a massive time loss if you die, like with bigger levels.

Map of the Week #39

Hey everyone!

Today we’re exploring something a little bit experimental with Tahazzar’s “Show Who’s Boss”, which aims to create a sort of pseudo boss rush.

The concept of a boss rush, which is essentially going through several bosses consecutively, is somewhat troublesome to imagine working well in DEADBOLT’s environment – making it a series of levels (especially if you just put a bunch of levels from the game’s main campaign in a row) could be dull and tedious and if you choose for it to be a single level, you can run into trouble of just having too many enemies in one spot, and powerful enemies at that.

Tazz decided to go with the latter but, fortunately put all the bosses in one large building, sparing a lot of space between bosses and enabling for somewhat fair one-on-one encounters.

As you could tell by looking at previous MotWs, I like hard levels, maybe even too much. And while this one, contrary to what we’d usually see from Tazz, doesn’t have any flashy decorations, it sure as hell delivers on the difficulty and the fun factor, having us face our arch nemesis like Madam Stela with her phylacteries and endless shotgun ammo or Amber & Evelynn with their harvest babble and many alike. No Timur though, darn.

Sure, there’s a lot of space between the bosses, but that space also happens to be filled with other undead. If you’re not careful, you can quickly find yourself out cornered by hordes of dogs and vampires coming your way. As always, the best strategy is divide and conquer.

It’s a nice, simple level that provides a fair challenge with thoughtful enemy placement and just the right amount of guns littered around. While “Show Who’s Boss” isn’t unique with its story or visuals or even anything gameplay-related to begin with, I can still commend it for just focusing on the level design and succeeding in that regard. And hey, at the end of the day – it’s a really fun level.

And what else do you really need but a fun, well designed level?
