Who needs torpedos...

... When your submarine has a Supermech and a bunch of medium lifters?

You know, while pretty short (hence the use of the word "vignettes") ... that particular level from that level set is pretty challenging.  (and fun)

That's one of it's biggest draws for me as a levelset, TechPro... it's nonstop. There's no break. Levels are small, cramped, and intense. I really like that formula because it forces the player to really keep hammering away at the trigger while thinking about where to go or what to do next. There's nothing wrong with a five-minute level if there is ingenuity in design and excitement to be had for all five minutes. And there's plenty of that in each level.  ;D
I, for one, hope this is much, much more than a reconnaissance mission.

Effect would have been a little better if they used the water trick (add extra cubes and then make illusions with the "water" texture), but other than that it was an interesting design.
