Reviewer's comments

"There are several applications here which really can be considered improvements of this familiar level. First, the author has removed the annoying automatic doors, now everything has a switch. Second, he added some surprising yet not unfair traps, and a seriously missing bossfight. However a great mistake is to force a player to traverse this map three times after we already did it hundreds of times before. Also, everything is made of standard elements and the audiovisual mood is exactly like in the original from 18 years ago so the warmest verdict I can have here is "correct" - a nice effort as for a test level but, like in many such cases, those setups would do much better in a fresh, standalone adventure. Recommended if you feel nostalgic and sentimental, otherwise not really." - DJ Full (14-Nov-2018)

"There's really nothing worth calling "Revised" in this level. The only minor additions to this very (and I mean very) well-worn scenario are a few extra blade, flame and falling debris traps, a few more ninjas that just seemed randomly placed rather than providing an actual threat and a long and tedious backtrack to collect the second Eye Piece (including a timed secret if you choose to go for it). Everything looks competent, but it just isn't very enjoyable to play. Not really worth playing through unless you're an extreme fan of the original or have not played it before." - Ryan (13-Nov-2018)

"I'm at a loss to account for the low scores awarded by the previous reviewers, as I found this to be a fairly entertaining raid. Maybe it's because I'm not familiar with the level being revised, as all this was new and fresh to me. Sure, it's old school Egypt, but everything looks good, there's sufficient light to see, and I didn't find the backtracking at the end to be all that annoying. I wouldn't have known that the last secret was timed had it not been for manarch2's review. It's a pretty tight timed run at that, and I had to save along the way and try several times before I made it. I have no idea when Osvaldo put it together, or why he didn't release it at the time, or why he chose to release it now, but it's certainly worth the time to download and play it." - Phil (12-Nov-2018)

"Hmmm, it's not really all that 'revised' from what I can see, at least not sufficiently to warrant playing unless you're a real fan of the original. Certainly, Osvaldo has built far better levels, but then this has apparently been languishing on his computer for some time. I'd recommend going for some of his other stuff for a fairer picture of his building skills." - Jay (07-Nov-2018)

"Don't let the 'Revised' tagline bloat your expectations. As what's altered from the original tutorial level here, is nothing to really brag about(with the only differences being more levers & switches to pull, traps arbitrarily placed in familiar spots for the sake of artificial difficulty and two major new areas, which feel more tacked-on than beneficial to the overall experience, adding an extra 20+ minutes that ultimately amount to very little value). So in the end, not really worth downloading." - Ceamonks890 (02-Nov-2018)

"I wish the builder had just left this level on his computer and didn't spam the public with yet another replica of this level that really nobody needed. The few added areas do not create a large difference, and the backtrack to the very start of the level from almost the end is just tedious. Very little to actually enjoy here and even the three secrets are not so nice, as one is hidden in the same way as before and another one (which I chose to miss) involves a not hinted timed run across the backtracking path. I guess that the builder doesn't read much reviews, but for players this gets a clear disrecommendation. Took me 20 minutes to finally finish." - manarch2 (02-Nov-2018)

"I do not know what changed right, if it means a revised, that sound the original rooms, with some complements and new rooms inulteis, I think that this project as revised will never go forward at last until the original can be better than this, has strange lighting after aguns flipmaps out there, and strange everything that has here ....... I did not enjoy anything here ...." - PedroTheGamer (01-Nov-2018)
