About This File

I tried to depict an episode of J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece, The Lord of The Rings (if you still haven't read it, do it NOW!). See the Background section for related extracts of the book.

So, what is it all about? Gandalf and his friends are on their way east. Their last resort to cross the mountains is to get through The Moria, city of Dwarves. Unfortunately, it has now become a dark and dangerous underground labyrinth. The east door is not very far now, but an oppressive feeling is growing... Will our fellows reach the valley of the Anduin river?

This is from July 2000. It's hard to judge; as a playable map it suffers from the fact that you can run and climb straight through it almost without encountering any monsters at all, except for a final battle that you can dodge. On the other hand, it looks good and has atmosphere, and the great hall is spookily reminiscent of the Peter Jackson film, which was far in the future when the level was made. It's more a thing to explore and look at than play.

Very good level design, one of the best Heretic level architecture I've got to see, but it strongly lack some sort of gameplay. If you know the route you can finish the level in less than a minute. Even playing the level in uvmax is really easy. 3/5. ~Naan

As the above reviewers have said, it's a little hard to rate as it's quite an atmospheric location to explore, but you can sneak out without seeing much of the map or even fighting all that much. Whether this is a flaw or a feature is up to you, after all, the point in the inspirational material was just getting to the other side safely, not cleaning the place out. Still, I would find it more fun if it were either bigger (more exploration) or had more intense combat. 3/5.

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.

      Starts with all monsters with their backs to you, and you might as well leave it that way and just listen to the music. One big rectangular room with no finish switch. They couldn't even make the rectangle properly - freehand I guess. Kill the monsters if you want, it's easy.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.
