Very simple in design but all the gameplay gimmicks and events make it somewhat enjoyable. If it weren't for the fact he said he dislikes the game (though I guess that doesn't preclude inspiration) I'd believe this was heavily Half-Life inspired with the environmental interactions and set-pieces, especially towards the end with the Pupae behind glass (which feels like similar moments with Headcrabs), and the sewer tunnels with valves which also feels right out of a part near the start of the game.

The disguise doesn't amount to much though as if you don't run there's a chance you pretty much have to fight everything anyway, and it would be nice if something more could be done with the bots rather than just having them be instantly aggressive, technically you can lure them towards the Skaarj to take a few out at least. The ending succeeds in being amusingly dumb with it all turning into one big loop.
