"There does seem to have been a resurgence in updates for levels already posted on this site, which does seem a bit disconcerting. But that's another discussion for another day, and this one can now be played without any issues (the only odd thing being that the level titles seem to have reverted to the stock TR4 script names). Now, onto the level in question. As far as scenery goes, this is really quite beautiful. The sandy NG Egyptian textures are utilised nicely, the atmosphere is well captured and the builder seems to have a good grasp on audio file usage. However, the gameplay was quite aggravating in parts, particularly the numerous backtracking sections and the exact precision required for a few of the traps. There was also an invisible platform section that was more tedious than it should have been. Ammo and weaponry was also on the scarce side, but that shouldn't really be a major issue unless you expend all of the ammo in quick succession. There is enough to go round. A few more camera hints would have also been useful once an action had been triggered, although this game is relatively linear so that shouldn't be too much of a problem. I did like the way that the block puzzles, timed runs and quad bike ride was set up, though. There definitely has been an improvement on the aesthetics side of things from this builder's debut effort and if a little more thought is put into the gameplay aspect, we could be seeing something really special one day." - Ryan (15-Jan-2020)
