Reviewer's comments

"2 short test levels in this game. Both have not finish trigger. I liked Lara's playground. She rides the snowmobile around while the leopards dance in the air. But in the end I killed them just to make more gameplay." - kabal (21-Apr-2017)

"Another set of test levels from back in 2000. This time Lara can pick up two keys to open doors, shoot a tiger and some snow leopards and then leave when she wishes. Both levels aren't exactly well done in the looks department either, with repetitive, boring texturing. As Jay says, the leopards in the second level are jumping on an icy platform, so don't be too impressed." - Ryan (18-Dec-2016)

"Two little test levels with no finish trigger and interesting textures" - Nuri (01-Jul-2015)

"Again we wonder what's behind the door, but this time there are two doors and we use a key which replaces medikit - it's not good the latter was removed because the bossfight is much harder than the previous one. Also not good the animal traces are gone because the element of suspicion is damaged. Nevertheless I still laughed at the final surprise. There is also a bonus level, where Lara, frustrated with persisting lack of leveljump, or maybe willing to avenge getting scratched by the first beast, attempts a bike onslaught on some more. The rampage cannot work for the ramp is not high enough and somehow the enemies can walk soft opacity while their adversary can't (somebody please explain me how this is technically possible). Thankfully there is still a chance for some direct shooting from the bottom, but I would still make the platform walkable to at least give the leopards an illusion of chance. SUMMARY: There should be another sequel including a gorilla. I don't know this builder much, but he seems to be a creative one so I'll go through his next levels in search for such things and many more. Recommended." - DJ Full (27-Apr-2015)

"Oh look, some more pointless test levels! But unlike a lot of the previous test releases I've reviewed in the past, this one offers nothing that we haven't all seen before. The first level has you unlocking two doors to fight a tiger(which is essentially a lazy copy/paste of Slash's TR1 version of What's Behind the Door), while the other level called 'Lara's Playground', allows you to ride a snowmobile around in circles in a boxy room for as long as you like, with some leopards running around in midair, before quitting the game and immediately chucking it into the bin. In the end, its nothing more than another soulless release that simply isn't worth your valuable time playing." - Ceamonks890 (23-Jul-2014)

"This was over before I had to chance to get into it. You get two for the prize of one but they are super short. No finishing trigger and a pushing block in one and four floating leopards in the other." - Gerty (02-Sep-2013)

"I know it's a test level. The textures are bad as is the gameplay. I only liked one thing about this level and that was the leopards running around in midair. There were no finish trigger or anything interesting to improve the gameplay but i give 1 Point for the snowmobile though." - totizedger (14-Jul-2013)

"Cameras were awful as well as bad chosen textures. No gameplay as those were test levels but one way or another they were terrible." - Casual Raider (10-Jul-2013)

"I'm being extra generous within the lighting and textures category,but as the builder went to the trouble of providing us with no less than two poorly textured levels I decided diplomatically to award one point for each.One leopard to shoot (there are four in the second level,but as they're all prancing merrily around in the sky I decided to leave them to it),one block to push,two keys to pick up to open corresponding doors. Usually I'm not a great fan of Slash' levels,as they tend to be a little hard on the player;but in this case,I certainly can't make that particular complaint. Nor can I properly recommend them either,unless (like me) you've been so starved of new levels lately that there was really no option remaining but to give them a go." - Orbit Dream (09-Mar-2011)

"Part one is ‘Behind the Door’ revisited and part two is a level where basically Lara can ride the snowmobile round and round. I must say I was utterly fascinated by the snow leopards performing synchronised bouncing about in mid air, until I noticed that they were actually on an ice platform, whereupon it all became much less interesting." - Jay (07-Mar-2011)

"Two levels like dozens before. No real gameplay, no finish trigger. Boring." - manarch2 (14-Jul-2010)

"I got the answer for the question again, what's behind that door, and Lara got to a place with floating animals. Driving around endlessly can be fun anyway. But not for me." - rtrger (26-May-2010)

"First, a repeat of TR1 "What's Behind That Door," where Lara picked up a shotgun, and opened door to shoot a wolf. Now there are two keys and two doors, plus push block, and Lara shoots a tiger. Next is "Lara's Playground." All Lara can do is drive the snowmobile around a circuit, which isn't much, but this room has four snow leopards dancing in air, keeping perfect step. Lara can shoot them, but that would be heartless. There seems to be a slight haze in the air where the snow leopards prance. The sky uses transparent water textures." - dmdibl (14-May-2010)

"This adventure includes two test levels. On the first on there are 2 tigers and a key, but there aren't finish trigger. On the second one we can train by snowmobile. Same with the first level: no finish trigger." - Obig (10-May-2010)

"Two super short Test levels with a push block, two keys and a tiger in one, 4 floating snow leopards in the other and no finish trigger in both." - MichaelP (01-Feb-2010)
