Nice cathedral-type adventure map. Highly detailed with a lot of care, and great ambiance. Gameplay @ UV gets a bit boring due to too many low-tier monsters icw no SSG, then suddenly turns into heavy slaughter. This might have been build-up more gradually. And doors with side actions 1 & 31 (f.e. linedef 6372) are a no-go, because they're gameplay-killers equivalent to inescapable pits. But overall: not legendary, but solid 4*.

I'm surprised this map doesn't have more comments! The visuals are fantastic for a map made in '99. In fact, it looks great even by today's standards. There are some very clever ideas I haven't seen anywhere else. The game play is good as well, with plenty of action to go around. My only complaint is a few copy/paste sections, but that can be forgiven with the scope work presented, as well as the originality. This map should be viewed by every mapper, if not just for a few ideas!

Hardly a "hidden" gem - this is a well-known map from a few years back. Otherwise, what the guy above said. 4/5

I like to look up these unreviewed, unremarked levels from the past in case one of them is a hidden gem. This is quite good. The design is clean and well done, and there is an enormous amount of monsters and ammo; it's almost like a kind of hybrid conventional/slaught er map at times. It's great fun although very linear.

liked, except that it took 14 minutes and 180 monsters to kill with shotgun before I got the ssg. Also really surprised this isn't a Fiffy map, but the author does thank Fiffy in the txt file.

Wow... I never actually expected anyone to still try and find these maps. This is particularly cool for me personally, because this one, FizzB1, is my map :) It's the only one I ever actually released.. Thanks to everyone here who still plays these things. I'd almost completely forgotten about this. 3/21/10 -Dave

This is from September 1999. It's decent fun. You fight 665 monsters in a mid-sized gothic library-castle style map. Nice buttresses. It starts off very grid-like, then opens out a bit, although it's frequently copy-and-paste. The gameplay is a bit monotonous, and it's not hard if you play it methodically because there's a lot of health and ammo. If however you just dash around in circles it's very entertaining, with lots of infighting.

      Done with these settings:   - Crispy Doom 5.3.
      - Ultra-Violence
      - Continuous combined with pistol start mindset.
      - No saves, mostly.
      Very decent tribute to the original game. Each map is essentially a remix of the ID's levels, built around the same theme and music tracks per episode, albeit with the author's personal changes to the design. Aesthetically, the only notorious difference, and by no means less important, is the texturing he decided to use in some sections. In general the maps look extra polished, there were no signs of misaligned textures, but I wasn't that attentive to be honest. He did left the most distinctive visual features of each map untouched, for example where it's supposed to be a dark secret dungeon, it is a dark secret dungeon, just not copy-pasted.    As said before, Wonderful Doom is just a revamped Ultimate Doom. If you know the game by heart, there may be little room for surprises, so you can take it as a memory test. Of course, the author added his own touch to the gameplay. I would underline the size of the rooms in comparison to the iwad, tending to be more compact though in no way less attractive. In consequence, they lead to a bit more claustrophobic combat, specially throughout the latter episodes, sometimes you'll find yourself in a hairy situation like a slow drop in a cluster of imps and barons coming from the shadows, or starting surrounded of pinkies and barrels to detonate using your ol' peashooter. Another thing is the resource balance, sometimes giving more leeway where there wasn't originally, other times less obvious for the pistol starter. This is part of several plot twists Wraith added here and there to the main concepts to keep it somehow fresh and interesting, but I'm not going to spoil any in particular.    Secret-wise, I guess it's not needless to say almost all of them can be found normally, there is one in E2M9 that can't be triggered due to the teleport line. Otherwise, there are no broken sectors or staircases of secrets (sorry to burst your bubble ;P). There are no disliked maps, and so I'll avoid to pick favourites this time. I also didn't care if most maps were extremely similar to the iwad ones, but that could not be the case for you.   Overall, I won't lie and say this turned out to be thoroughly enjoyable. It's what I expected from an author with such love for plain vanilla Ultimate Doom. Nostalgia fans should give it a go. Well, as long as you wish to "play Original Doom one more time", otherwise if you expect a thing like "Doom the Way ID Did", it might not be wise to download this. My rate is 8/10.

      This is clearly the most groundbreaking, exciting release of the decade. Forget your megawads, this is where its at. Wonderful, delightful, sublime, glorious... all words that dont even come close to expressing just how great this wad is.

      Another abomination in doom mapping. It's crap even in crap category.

      Ugly, rectangular, not enough ammo. In one word: CRAP

      Sound replacement is terrible. Sounds are very annoying. Level also is ugly. Only thing I like is sprites replacement. Kicking nazi asses is same as good like demons ones ;)
