Description: I confess! I'm not a *true* DOOMer. I like the game the most at the HMP (He Must Practice ?!) level. I want to have some time to take a closer look at the enviroment. Besides, I'm into X-rays, not UV :) Therefore I spend much time aligning textures and I hope I haven't missed a spot (If you find an error, please flame my beta-testers!). On the other hand, this could mean that I exaggerated UV a little...

Before you go out and hopefully play this WAD, I must tell you that there's a CyberDemon Surprise at the end (I know it's a cheap trick, flame me!), but you're given 3 options to bypass this CDS: a) Run like hell; b) Nuke him (a BFG might come in handy); and c) ... Nah! It's a secret.

This was one of the first good Doom wads I played in my life; innovative for the epoch it was made, very great map. You brought me a lot of inspiration for every work of mine, so you deserve ***** - Danielx
pros: wonderful gameplay Great monster placement looks pretty good good traps cons: out of place textures themes here and there] too many small rooms (youll see what i mean) overall really good. so what are you waiting for, download it!x
I remember this - it's part of the "maximum doom" CD collection that I have knocking about somewhere. It's a castle level, excellent for the time, not quite so good now. As one of the other reviews points out, there are a lot of pokey little rooms. And there's a design decision/bug whereby the monsters don't react to you until you shoot 'em. It's nostalgic, though.x
A good castle WAD from the classic era. - N_Ax
A true classic. Despite the map being large, it's possible to beat the level quickly if you know where the blue key is. 4/5x
