Review of Alejandro Arroyo (Arrovf)Language: Spanish

Empezamos en una zona montañosa para luego transportarnos a una base lunar.

El mapa presenta un diseño bonito en lineas generales, con un buen uso de la iluminación y también con el look típico de los niveles espaciales.

El gameplay consiste en ir avanzando a medida que encontramos y usamos las tarjetas, estas no están muy escondidas por lo que no es un mapa donde sea fácil perderse, aunque si es verdad que también hay algunos interruptores que pulsar y si no damos con ellos podemos estar dando vueltas como pollos sin cabeza.

La acción es muy comedida, rara vez nos veremos en problemas por falta de munición o exceso de peligro.

Como curiosidad tengo que decir que el botón de final de nivel cuesta pulsarlo, puede parecer que no funciona pero insistiendo incluso buscando un ángulo extraño medio lateral al final acaba por accionarse.

Score: 83

                        levels, but who plays doom now?

Description           : 	After some R&R you get word that some
			aliens have made it back to the moon where they
			have built a floating space station and are
			breeding a new alien army to invade earth, again.
				You must make your way back to the moon
			through a transport deep in some mountainous caves
                        and destroy the mastermind of the operations, the
                        shadow brain, to make sure that they will never have
                        a chance to follow through with their demonic plans.
