Out in Space is a good map with even more potential but partly fails
due to lack of proper lighting. This relatively x-axis
space map has a fair amount of details; only one or two rooms
could have used a lot more detailing (the first warehouse room), but amazingly some areas
seem to have no lighting effects at all (basically a crime) and the
overall lighting level is too bright.
This really is a pity since I really liked the way
some of the rooms had been filled with quite original looking details and a good set
of textures. Trimming is also easily above average.
The map will take you around 20 minutes. There's a fair amount
of monsters and plenty of bullets available. It's maybe 1/4 too
long in terms of gameplay but that's a matter of taste. I'd have
put a bit more effort into improving puzzles; the map relies too
heavily on finding buttons from rather weird places. Another point
concerning gameplay is space - there's plenty of room to do things
(i.e., corridors are not cramped and there are plenty of open - but
not empty - areas).
Out in Space definitely shows potential and it's fun. However,
it'd have been clearly better had its size been cut a bit and had more
effort been put into giving each area proper lighting effects.
