Review by Kim Robinson on 2nd August 2007
Perhaps one of the oddest Duke levels in existence, with the possible exception of Asylum, which incidentally is also by the same author. Bizarre takes you to a world gone topsy-turvy, where the laws of physics seem not to apply, the buses run on time and the dregs in home-made beer is the best bit. The author has masterfully exploited various loopholes, bugs and features inherent in the BUILD engine to create something wholly strange and unique, you'll have a grand old time exploring upside-down rooms, rooms occupying the same space as other rooms, following invisible aliens and getting your world-view rotated 90° every time you step into an exit. Fun for the whole family, check it out!

====================================================================== Title : "Bizarre" Filename : 2Bizarre.map Author : Bob Masters E-mail : bmasters[at]dreamscape.com Other levels : Orion Prime I and II Web Page : www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/Chasm/7733/index.html Description : This level breaks all the rules! In the wilderness near Area 51, Duke finds a portal to an alternate universe, devoted to pretty much everything that's weird. I wanted to make this level completely different from anything we've ever seen! It includes new artwork too. At the center of this universe is a very unearthly building like the one in those great Escher paintings, where gravity is going in 3 different directions. Inside, the doors lead off to nine other bizarre places. See how many scientific laws are broken. Additional Credits To : I got most of the graphics from the internet. Since each graphics pattern can be found on multiple websites, I don't know who made each one.
