Let this map play on your senses.
It looks great, it feels great, it smells great.
All the rooms look fantastic and non of them out of place.

The level design is good, playable and unbiased until you reach the spiders base. This area lets the whole map down. Although it looks really, really, good its just too easy for grunt(s) to rush in at the start of the game and prevent any form of breeding.

In my opinion this is the best looking gloom map (yet).

The spiders base is just too difficult to defend so this map only gets 50% from me.

Comment: Wow, this map looks as good as they come. The brush lighting really helps and the textures are just about perfect throughout.

Layout

Comment: The spiders base is one of the easiest to camp.

Creativity

Comment: Creating those textures earns you 4/4. The idea of a pipe network between the bases re-enforces this.

Comment: Great atmosphere, looks brilliant, just isn't anywhere to breed defences.
