Reviewer's comments
"Packed with a variety of well balanced tasks and strong visuals, this level brings some good ideas too. The highlight is changing time from day to night and performing different tasks within the same map. A well executed change. There is a bit of everything: exploration, timed runs, puzzles, fights. But most of all there is a player friendliness everywhere. Exploration is rewarded with 'Knots" that can buy things from the merchant, there is an item in our inventory that gets us straight to the temple of time to change time fast, the PDA opens straight at the last page and many other little details that show player consideration and make this level not only a very good one, but also really fun to play. Hightly recommended." - billie2001 (14-Jul-2024)
"A really great BtB entry. At the beginning we have an area with a small tutorial which is very pleasant. Then we come to the main hub of the level. I really liked the layout of the map and how everything was connected. The gameplay is very engaging with lots of exploration, traps, parkour, puzzles, combat etc. The concept of changing the daytime which alters different rooms is phenomenal and I really loved it. The design is top-notch as well. A very good usage of textures, nicely done lighting and architecture. All of this creates a wonderful atmosphere. This game is really well-done and I highly recommend it to everyone." - BlackWolfTR (09-Jul-2024)
"Amazing level. It looks great and there is a really good flow to gameplay without a single dull moment. The game includes plenty of exploration, excellent platforming and timed runs mixed with traps, and inventive puzzles. A central puzzle involves a temple of time where you can change time from day to night. During the night, rain floods certain areas, whereas those same areas are drained during the day. The builder has also provided an item which allows you to quick travel to the temple of time from any location. This came very handy as it removes the need for backtracking that would be tedious otherwise. I don’t really have any criticism since I thoroughly enjoyed every part of the game. This is tomb raiding at its best." - Samu (05-Jul-2024)
"Bugs/Functional Issues
  • A raising block activated by shooting a gem may have collision issues after toggling day and night, but this is unlikely to affect players who will probably just make use of it right away.
Disliked
  • I had made note of a wall that could be shattered with the grenade gun later on (near a boulder ramp), but I was dissapointed that I couldn't re-enter that area - all the doors were closed for good, and even a timed lever had dissapeared. I'm guessing it was a secret so this didn't affect the main gameplay much.
Liked
  • I randomly chose this as my first foray into the competition, and this entry did a nice job easing me into the mechanics of the game at the beginning.
  • Of course, the defining aspect of this level is the temple of time, where Lara can toggle the level between day and night. This does things like change water levels, toggle which doors are open and closed, and so on. The level itself becomes one big puzzle with this mechanic and I appreciate the attention to detail put into it.
  • A merchant is used to incentivize exploring the area to gain spending power. Two of these purchases are mandatory to proceed, but it is nice that you can keep collecting more to buy extra ammo.
  • All that ammo comes in handy at the end of the game, which throws Lara into a long combat sequence. While I might think it was a little too heavy-handed, I still appreciated the climatic ending to the adventure.
  • In addition to the above, there are also a good amount of traps and timed doors to make things interesting.
  • I have a suspicion that other entries will outshine this one in terms of architecture, but the visuals are still very well done. The obelisk courtyard in particular was inviting for exploration.
Time: 1 hour 17 minutes | Difficulty: Medium | Rating: 8.75/10 - Very Good" - JesseG (05-Jul-2024)
