I am not sure about the meaning of the phrase "tight level design" in the following sentence from a combat game's description:

The tight level design and many opportunities for vertical gameplay mean players will need to bring their A game if they want to stay alive in this highly competitive theater of war.

I know the lexical meanings of the word tight, but cannot figure out which of them suits here.

Tight here would be some variation of meaning 1 in the dictionary you linked to. The arena the game takes place is not large and wide open but instead is smaller and confined, with players located close together.

  • I think there is probably also an aspect of meaning 5: tight in the sense of careful, precise, having nothing extraneous. Aug 15, 2019 at 20:30
