Casa de fuego. House of fire, for those unfamiliar with Spanish. Those who are familiar with Spanish will probably realize it should be casa del fuego to be grammatically correct ;).
This map certainly is a house of fire, but it is a somewhat lacking house of fire, mainly due to a significant amount of missing textures and several missing slash damage entities. Fire should burn and be painful. You shouldn't be able to squat in the middle of it waiting for your target to run past.
Now if I just sounded really negative, it's because I hate it when a good map has the little bits missing. Not that I necessarily blame the author -- it was probably just an unintended oversight -- we all make them. However the number of missing textures is significant enough to make it very noticible, and very annoying. However on the other hand, the architecture of the map is very nice. The map features quite a few curves, including curved pillars, as well as pits, jump pads, angular archways, and octagonal stairways. Boxy and curved are brought together to create an interesting atmosphere that really fits a firey atmosphere.
What I'd like to see in a version two would be uniform splash damage on the many fire effects (some of them cause splash damage, some don't) and I'd like to see those textures fixed, for sure! A good start on an interesting map that I'd love to see completed.
