Description: Basically, this is a temple in hell that can be blazed through in 5 minutes. No real plot, just demons getting blown away.

This wad originally began life as part of what was going to be a 9 map set for Vanilla Doom, but I abandoned it after switching to Zdoom. Then I took bits of maps 2, 3, and 5, converted them to Zdoom format, put them together, and added some basic Zdoom functions and scripts. It was going to be part of the Doomworld Mega Collab (or whatever it was called), but I missed the deadline. It gathered dust on my hard drive for a few months, until recently when I decided to polish it up and release it anyways.

One more thing. Given that this is my first public release, I'd appreciate some constructive criticism so that I know what to improve next time.
Credits: Rammstein, Alice In Chains, and someone else (I forget who) for the music. A few bits of architecture were repurposed from Terry maps. Hey, it was a shame to see such good architecture go to waste.
Base: New from scratch
Build time: 4 months, but really only like a week.
Editor(s) used: Doom Builder 2, SLumpED
Bugs: A few badly aligned textures if you look hard enough.

Boo, stealth monsters (only 4 fortunately). Also the "music" was just a single note for me, probably something wrong with my system. Anyway, this is a short and visually simple brick\marble temple map with arena\trap oriented gameplay. Some fights are trivial, others require decent maneuvering skills. The level feels very disjointed, just rooms connected by doors, but I thought it was kinda fun to play. The new story screen is appreciated too.x
Hey Linkrulezall, it's Faceplant from Pirated Games Central! Knew I recognized that name. Anyway, this is a fun blast of a map that gives you just enough ammo to get by, but you'll always have a few spare rockets. There's a circular room with an intersection that leads to 2 different battles, I like that. In that room, once the bars come down, there are missing textures. Overall this is fun, download it nao!x
Started out very well, but ran out of steam later on. At least one sidedef (1830) is missing a lower texture (crouch in sector 219 and you can see the HOM). More than 20 monsters failed to teleport in for me in the yellow key area, although that may be GZDoom's fault rather than the map's. All in all, fun, but not super-special. 3.5/5 - ZZx
I not-horrible type of map that works decently enough as a first release. The architecture is predictable plain and with noticeable errors at certain points (DOORTRAK pegging issues, flat mismatches), but these are mostly forgivable. Gameplay is solid, albeit one-note. The stealth-cacos aren't really necessary, the fights all of the same flavor and variety, but the cybie battle was a decent enough moment. All in all, it's worth a playthrough if you're bored, but nothing you'll remember the next day. 3/5x
