About This File

3-level set with a medieval theme, using Hexen2 textures, new sprites, and a beautiful new sky. The architecture is quite detailed, and the texture alignment is near perfect (can you say "huge pain in the ass and a major buttload of work"?)

Map_01 -- Ramparts Entry-level type map, where you explore the outer walls of a medieval castle and figure out a way to gain entry.

Map_02 -- The Keep Start in the outer courtyard, explore the tradesman's compound and the fountains before venturing deeper into the castle. Marvel at the quiet beauty of the chapel and the desolation of the cemetary, before storming the inner courtyard and the keep. Tarry awhile in the great hall and the throne room and then spend a moment in silent reflection at the pavilion. Next, curl up to a good book in the library and when you tire of that, find your way into the bedchamber. Finally, the crypt awaits.

Map_03 -- The Crypt Are you afraid of the dark? Is the Boogie Man not one of your favorite people? Do you wish you'd saved that last bullet for your- self, instead of frantically pumping it into the rock-hard skull of that damned baron? Then this level is not for you. If, however, you like creepy places (who doesn't?) and can ration your ammo then by all means venture forth!

Level two is the standout, it's a good-looking, expansive castle. The gameplay is so-so but it looks wonderful. Level one is decent, but I didn't like the platform jumping, and it's very gloomy and hard to see anything. Level three is mostly a dark gloomy maze. In all three levels the Hexen textures look great and and it's professionally done. If you just play one level play the second one.

These levels are very boring. Nice looking and the second is the best but boring. 4/25/07

I love the architecture and use of textures in this mapset. The atmosphere is also quite good, making this work quite well. -WW

Nice use of H2 textures. Should have made it for ZDooM and used hubs.

      When first reading this wad's description I thought this will be a 1994 style map, where someone just tried to recreate his office building to shoot up his colleages. Boy, was I wrong!   Going Down emerged as one of my favourite megawads so far, with its very clever use of small to medium map space and interesting gameplay mechanics in every single map. The first couple of maps start innocent enough, but soon you will find yourself navigating literal crawl spaces, thinking about use of space and / or slight puzzle mechanics just before being thrown into hell itself and fighting for your life. Going Down is designed as a literal descent into hell, which was the most beautifully realized aspect of it. How every map slightly changes into a more and more hellish theme is just great, great design work. Even though the later maps delve into slaughter territory I must admit that I still quite enjoyed it. Actually this was the first time I enjoyed being slaugthered and figuring out how to approach the map.   Going Down is simply an amazing piece of work, oozing quality from start to finish and rewarding the player with incredible elevator music inbetween. A must play.

      Such a wonderful creation! I really wish there were some more maps so this could make it into ZDaemon Thursday Night Survival (TNS) someday...

      This is a solid contender for being the absolute best Megawad that I've ever played.

      I...did not review this, okay. well, it's blue and it's pretty decent and setpiece-y. get used to ribbiks' style and this one is just like all his other maps, very well-designed and fun to play. just watch out for MAP03's final area.

      it's one of those classic 90's wads you can probably just sift through, but it's not that good. plenty of inescapable pits, some awful level progression, and some actually trollish crusher placement lie within this one.
