    I noticed you can strafejump away from voreballs, leading them into walls or even packs of enemies causing friendly fire. Other than sniping Vores from a distance, that's the only way you can deal with them to my knowldege.

    Goddamn Arcane Dimesions is good. The level designers produced both Art style AND good gameplay in abundance. Highly recommend.

    The only thing I don't like is lack of continuation between maps/all maps being designed for shotgun/axe start, so long-term reward for good resource management and secret hunting is gone, and you can never get comfortable with higher tier weapons, always getting them taken away. Much of the game you'll be using the axe, shotguns and nailgun, with moderate grenade launcher use. Fuck the "pistol start" concept. Difficulty should be designed through other means.

    A couple maps stand out as not up to scratch with the rest but overall it's highly impressive.

    That was actually one of my favourites. At least in the top ten of AD anyways.

    The truth is, Quake gameplay doesn't work particularly well in such maps. The amount of work invested in this could have produced so much better, tighter layouts and geometry.
