Review by Colin Phipps

screenshot Although KHills series of levels are designed to work with any limitless source port, KHills_2 is every bit as impressive as many of the levels from the KBoom series that preceeded it. There are lots of special effects, mainly the big impressive bridges that are important to the level progression. The style is very similar to KHills (the first level in the series), with industrial buildings set in a large valley.

You start outside, on a railed ledge overlooking the valley below. The opening fight is good, with a few heavy monsters overlooking and in the valley to deal with, and wandering shotgun men to watch out for. The indoor areas are nicely done, with computer panels, moving machinery, and a clever bridge arrangement to reach the keycard.

There are a few good traps; I particularly liked the one when you get the keycard, because lots of imps were released outdide the building and began shooting down at me through the windows of the building. There is plenty of ammo (well, shells anyway), but there is very little health (only a few stimpacks), so you have to be very careful.

Overall, I was only slightly disappointed that the level was fairly linear, and there were no secrets. Apart from that, it's an impressive and fun level.
