Description

Medium-large space-themed CTF level; best suited to 3vs3/4vs4 but other game sizes may work as well.

This level was originally made in 2007 (with a different tileset) and was intended to the be the fifth level in the Legends CTF pack, but was not completed. After gathering dust for several years, I decided to remake the level with a new coat of paint and numerous gameplay improvements on a recommendation from cooba.

Note that this level uses a large number of custom sound effects along with other scripted elements, and thus JJ2+ is required to play this level. I have included a version with death pits as a bonus, although I ask you to focus on the regular version when writing a review.

With JDC around the corner, it seems as good of a time as any to give this a public release now. Enjoy!

Really cool level. Duels work (though not recommended), 2v2’s work and even larger games work. The Laserblaster might be a bit random at times but it’s a nice concept. Download recommended!

I didn’t get to play a 3vs3+ game here, but Polaris’ layout is quite familiar to me and perhaps most other players; The layout is very solid. Some interesting game-play related things like timed fly cs and ricochet guns+pus. Lots of sounds enhance the level thematically. The rushed/contrived eye-candy is my only complaint.

That laser blaster reminds me of System Shock 2 game. The colors of Laser Blaster are the same as in SS2’s Laser Pistol: blue(normal mode) Red (over mode)

By the way 10/10 download recommended

Seems good for 3vs3s, perhaps even 2vs2s but duels could get really boring here, though CTF is basicly a team game so that’s cool. Some tight passages make very good use of that ricochet weapon, the fly carrot is useful and not too abusive, and is placed right where it needs to be. TBH i dont like the pit version, but as for the regular one, it’s fun. The eyecandy really does feel cold so it matches the name perfectly, and the sounds are a nice touch for the ambient as well.
