Good: Nicely detailed, for the most part; Many clever (though not always very rewarding) secrets. Few texture errors. Bad: Combat is easy and dull; Baffling "hit a switch, spend 20 minutes trying to figure out what it did" gameplay. Overall: Looks great, but the boring and incredibly confusing gameplay ruins it. Only the extremely patient may apply. 1/5 -VV

This is dated January 1997. It's a large techbase that feels empty, with 119 mostly weak monsters spread out over a wide area. Gameplay consists of exploring lots of similar square rooms - with lots of chairs - and flicking dozens of switches which open doors to more rooms with switches etc. This reaches a peak of absurdity about half-way through the level; after that I got more and more bored until I eventually just couldn't be bothered to finish it.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
