About This File

You watch as the rats fight each other over your latest meal of scraps, viciously battling for survival. You fought like that once.

Such a desperate battle was fought (and won) by you 12 years ago: when the UAC, nowadays the largest company in existence, experimented with interdimensional travel. An experiment that went wrong, sending you to hell and back before ridding earth of the evil invading force that had held it captive.

You watch as one of the rats slices throught the other's throat with it's teeth, before hobbling off with it's victory prize.

(Victory)

You acheived a victory over hell itself!

(Prize)

You look around the dank, almost gothic cell you have been thrown into. A cell that resides in the highest security wing of the deepest, darkest level of Romerack prison camp. Situated in the middle of nowhere, no-one has ever gotten past Romerack's brutal security measures.

Gurgling blood from it's mouth and throat, the wounded rat staggers up.....

It all happened when things had returned to normal, about nine years ago. The UAC was trying to pull itself together and rise from the rubble Hell had made of it. Then, unbelievably, they began experimenting again, claiming they "Knew what went wrong last time". The experiments were kept top secret by the UAC, and told only to a precious few.

( .....It NEEDS food........)

You were one of them.

(.....for the children it carries.......)

The moment you found out you became furious! Damned if they were going to try that again! You decided to make sure everyone was aware of what was going on.

( .......It can feel them dying.....)

So now you're here. A "security risk". You watch as the wounded rat struggles to return to it's hole, gurgles and dies. You watch closely, as a movement within the rat suggests it's corpse is going into labour......

You know it's going to happen again! You have to break out of here! You remember on your way in, of hearing mention of an underground waste system leading to the main medium security wing. You could escape from there for sure! It won't be easy, the prisoners will be shot if they don't try and stop you, the guards are fierce, and of course, the gates have been running for nine years......

Still, buck up marine, you've faced those odds before. For some reason, all prisoners have armaments, just the guards' little jokes. You see, no one escapes Romerack.....

3 short maps that aren't bad if you can overlook the texture alignment. Make sure to find the RL secret on MAP01, it'll help get through some tight spots. ***

      It's a very impressive megawad with a nice themed ancient Egypt atmosphere, with very nice choosing of textures to contribute to that theme, very nice architecture and impressive (and very risky) twist on the story going from ancient Egypt to alien spaceships, without using hi-pitched colors like in Ancient Aliens. Also, very tough megawad, if you're masochist enough, you can play it with Complex Doom and add LCA for more doses of pain.

      It's okay. Quite easy due to the abundance of artifacts, mana, & health. The level design is fine, nothing special. The only truly bad part was the unmarked puzzle bookcases, forcing you to wallhump the entire library as a last resort. Otherwise it's pretty simple stuff, running around finding keys and smashing monsters. The texturing and lighting aren't fantastic but aren't noticeably bad either. The only glaring issue is that many windows just show a wall textured with the sky texture rather than an area with a sky ceiling. Yet there are perfectly normal outdoor areas. Perhaps the author only figured it out skies halfway through development? Anyways, this is worth your time if you want an hour or two of simple Hexen fun.

      It's a nice wad overall, nice map design, textures and monster placement, enjoyed playing on D-Touch (GZDoom1.8) with Dude4th weapon mod.  My only complain would be the secrets, they have very few to no clues about their position.  There was a problem on E3M5 on the secrets around the squared starting room with stairs, the wall closes and let me stuck inside, had to use idclip to get out from those secret rooms.

      I recently played through this continuously twice on UV. Overall I feel this is an expertly crafted WAD from start to finish. Beautiful scenery, great soundtrack, and intense gameplay. Maybe a little too intense sometimes, and with that it's probably not a WAD I'll recommend to newbies. If less experienced players absolutely have to try it, I suggest playing on the lower difficulty modes as the included readme suggests. Describing the later maps of this WAD as "brutal" on UV is an understatement to say the least.
