[Kona]s Review

Tiddles has created ALOT of levels for Quake, to be exact - 40 q1dm maps and 4 q1sp all of which are worth playing. But his latest creation, Basex2, is excellent. He uses his usual grimy metal and dirty textures to create a unique base level (obviously) which look good together throughout the entire experience. Lighting was used well with them, making it dark and damp, with the occasional spot of lava or sky to brighten things up.

Gameplay was very well done, despite only getting to meet Grunts, Enforcers and Ogres (this is a base level, afterall), they are used very well and surprise the player many times, or by attacking in groups so that you need to be quick. It wasn't the longest level I've played though, despite being 75 monsters. And there was no tricky final fight either, which always scores a level higher. Nevertheless, on the great dirty base style that Tiddles has created, and the excellent and challenging gameplay, this is another level that should remain in your Quake/Maps folder!
