Reviewer's comments
"This is another very decently crafted TR3 offering, this time in a rarely used Barkhang Monastery-style setting. Gameplay is again mainly centered around exploration and a fair amount of nicely challenging trap sequences, although finding the correct route to take first might have you vexed for quite a bit. What somewhat spoils things a bit is the omnipresent darkness which dogs the player seemingly wherever they go. Yes, the textures look nicely crafted and the lighting is effective elsewhere, also plentiful flares are scattered around, but it does get a bit tedious having to scour every dark corner in case you overlook an opening or a switch, or have to perform an already dicey jump sequence and have to trace it with a flare first. On the plus side again though, the atmosphere is on point indeed, enemies undoubtedly pose a challenge (particularly the raptors), the secrets are very nicely executed and offer generous rewards and the two boss battles round proceedings off very fittingly (could have done without the maze at the start of level 2 though). If you can get past the darkness, this is well worth a look." - Ryan (29-Aug-2023)
  • I'm not a big fan of mazes, and the second level, well, has Labyrinth in its name. Thankfully its structure is rather simple compared to mazes I've seen in other customs.
  • The lighting is nice and colorful, but it is really dark. I unlocked the gamma setting and bumped it from 2 to 4.
  • There are plenty of traps such as a giant boulder, spikes, and circular blades.
  • There's also a good variety of TR3 enemies used, from tigers to a T-Rex, peaking at a final boss fight with Puma.
  • The architecture is good, especially in the first level where it opens up to a vertical layout that is nice to explore.
  • The secrets, or at least the ones I did find, were pretty interesting, especially in the second level.

"The level shows the competence of the builder to design a good TR3 map and an atmospheric one, it is all about exploration with some good ideas of traps jumps and secrets ; It would have been gripping but sadly darkness was so strong it was only painful trying to get through it, even with enough flares. In places you just don't know where you are jumping to, and my screen brightness was at the max. The second level is only a small maze with a boss at the end. Good musics and texturing." - eRIC (14-Jul-2023)
"Another level which is OK except from the lighting, and it cannot just be solved by adding thousands of flares, and gamma 10 is not a solution either. In return, you will get spooky mood in immersive blend of several oriental assets, nicely used soundtrack and more than one plot twist- though as always, I would like to see something happen after taking the final pickup. Maybe it's not a full-length adventure but it has almost all the elements in smaller scale. Recommended for any evening. Oh and there's also a home level for starters." - DJ Full (10-Jul-2023)
