This is awful. Really, awful.

Easily my most popular map, and why? No idea.
It's atrociously ugly, painfully textured and dull.

Try 5 Worse Ways to Die - a slightly more modern spin on this.

traps 2 and 3 are essentially the same thing. And i survived trap 3!!! How the hell can you sav barney without exploiting the games glitches?

good 5 minute waster but average architecture
Commented 13 years ago2005-05-03 09:53:18 UTC Comment #7118
3 is very different.. a metal crate lands on your head and then spikes come up from the floor
Commented 13 years ago2005-05-03 09:53:57 UTC Comment #7119
and you need to use the black ops to your advantage to save barney

I just played it along with the compo ones :)
Ok architecture was bland but thats ok because this is a fun map right ;)

Now then, it was an interesting idea and those trap ideas must have fallen out of my head!
There was a few things you really need to stop doing!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE STOP MAKING DOORS GO THROUGH THE WALLS AND MIX THE TEXTURES CAUSING SPLIT FACES!!!! PLEASE!

Also your 2nd or third trap (the one where the roof comes down and pushes you into spikes does not work properly because I was able to quickly run past it to a dead end!

The Black op people scared the crap outta me!

Final Verdict: A nice simple map yet it could be improved (not that you want to) and a nice 1 minute fun.

Oh and why does it say 6 ways to die when you start the map?
Commented 13 years ago2005-05-05 13:43:00 UTC Comment #7144
cos of the ending..

Is/was this your compo map?
Commented 13 years ago2005-05-06 18:49:48 UTC Comment #7169
no... my compo mapped sucked even worse than this
Commented 13 years ago2005-05-07 17:08:03 UTC Comment #7176
I agree. I enjoyed playing very much.

i think the map was really good. Mainyl because it was something that would make you think. Nicely done!

Texture Lock, Hunter! Texture Lock!

this is an ancient map.. i'm amazed it was so popular... Yes, it's fun, but my god it looks bad.
Commented 12 years ago2005-12-19 15:27:02 UTC Comment #10138
Incidently, am I the only one that doesn't get autosaved on load?
I hate "reloading" into my current hl game, so I'll await an answer before I rate it, if thats ok (strange things have been going on in my HL1 so I need verification of anything that seems glitchy or annoying).

This map doesn't show up in the vault...?
Commented 12 years ago2005-12-20 13:38:34 UTC Comment #10164
I thought it was really stupid because i went through all the right doors the first time until i reached poor little barney. Then i replayed it and went through the oppisite doors and its was fun. i felt like i really was screwed. 4 stars only because the textures wernt so great. you should make another map that is more of a game and you get through as many doors in one try.

Trap 1 : Escaped 1st Try.
Trap 2 : Escaped 1st Try.
Trap 3 : Escaped 1st Try.
Trap 4 : Escaped 1st Try. (10 hp thought)
Trap 5 : lol, died, because you were going to kill me anyway ;)

Then I let al the traps kill me, some funny traps.

But really, make them harder to escape, because I escaped them all in the first time I went tru that trap! :o

T1: Died
T2: Escaped 1st Try.
T3: Escaped 1st Try.
T4: Escaped 1st Try.
T5: Escaped 1st Try.

After dying once you can prettymuch figgure out how to go because there are only two options.
I then tested all of the traps and it was fun. :D

Overrated.
5 Worse Ways to Die is a lot better.
