Reviewer's comments
"This is one of my favorite custom levels so far including gorgeous environments, some of the best puzzles I have seen, and interesting storytelling with cinematic touches. Most of the game takes place in an Egyptian dream land containing three different puzzle areas and one final boss arena. A central feature in each of the puzzle areas is a torch, which alters Lara's movement in different ways. The puzzles are not only brilliantly designed but they are also fairly complicated requiring a lot of thinking, meaning that if you are looking for an easy level with fast progression, this level may not the best choice. However, the game does offer hints that will greatly facilitate puzzle solving in case you don't want to figure out everything yourselves. I found a shortcut in both King's Rest and Queen's Mantle areas, which allowed me to skip parts of the puzzles. This was not a big issue though, and perhaps, the shortcuts were even designed by the author. All in all, the level is amazing and gets a very strong recommendation from me." - Samu (10-Jul-2024)
"What an absolutely gorgeous level this was! If you're after purely aesthetics this is a must play. Gameplay wise, was a little bit cryptic for my liking, I know thats more of a me problem and thankfully tips and guides are available throughout. I could really appreciate the effort and innovations implemented though and like I say the level is a proper looker! It makes getting stuck in these environments that little bit more bearable!" - Feats (06-Jul-2024)
"Bugs/Functional Issues
  • There are several surfaces that Lara slides off of even though they aren't slopes. This glitch can make it hard to traverse certain areas.
  • The thin bridges are easy for Lara to fall through. Best to jump across them rather than just running.
  • There are also object collision issues that cause Lara to get pushed around even when she isn't that close to them (in particular, the dome in the second torch area).
  • When Jonah is replaced by skeletons, saving and loading causes the skeletons to disappear. Best to finish this sequence without saving and reloading (it doesn't take long once you figure out how to progress).
  • After using one of the teleporters unlocked by a scroll, Lara appears at her destination with one of her meshes replaced by a random object. Thankfully this only lasts for about half a minute before a sound effect is heard and she returns to normal.
Disliked
  • I could have done without the locusts in the third torch area. They fly in and disable the torch when Lara steps in seemingly arbitrary spots.
Liked
  • The various torch abilities are very creative. Each area with a torch becomes its own puzzle, and Lara has to set things in the right place in order to get them to their destination. Throw in the environmental changes that can be triggered and that adds another fun dimension to these areas.
  • There isn't much combat until the end, but when it does kick in it gets pretty interesting when the aforementioned torch abilites come in different combinations for an extra challenge.
  • I appreciate the two endings, one of which takes some extra work and obstacles to overcome.
  • Even though I wasn't a huge fan of the forced walking parts, the large amount of world building makes the story and adds an additional level of immersion to the adventure.
