DmCurse (a.k.a. Curse) is a Deathmatch map for Unreal.

Map description[]

The action takes place on Na Pali in a structure that includes elements of the Temple of Vandora. It is a very tight map, and as such it is easy to be attacked by enemies. There are a few levels in this map: the ground level with a long hallway, a second level which is accessable via some stairs or by the main elevator, and the top level.

Action is constant, and the battles most likely will take place by the main elevator in the map. This level is very tight, and has many secrets in it. There is a certain wall you can shoot for a Super Health Pack, or other areas that look like walls but hold power-ups. Every gun is in this map besides the Automag.

Tips and tricks[]

  • As it is a tight corridor filled map, make use of weapons such as the Flak Cannon or Razorjack. You can fall from the highest to the lowest floor without getting hurt. Also be on the lookout for enemies behind you, they often will follow you.
  • Be on the lookout for secret areas hidden throughout the map.


  • The map was considered for Unreal Tournament, and in fact appeared, untouched, in the betas. Needless to say, it went under a lot of changes in order to appear as DM-Curse][.
  • Levelshots for the map were added in the OldUnreal version 227j patch.
