About This File

These are eight levels of a whole set of Doom ][ levels by Berthold Beckschäfer and Thomas Lokum. In contrast to many Wads abroad, this one has been styled thoroughly paying attention to the correct arrangement of textures, a logical level layout et cetera. Be prepared to solve a puzzle or two as well. Of course this does not mean we forgot to put in a good bunch of monsters!

Back in the 90's, if someone had said "a Doom wad from 2000" this is basically what you'd expect. Lots of mapping/dehacked trickery, forcing the game to do cool things it was not intended to do. The Heretic map and custom actors were really impressive for a 15 year old product. Well done!

Starts out really awful, you need persistence to make it passed the first 2/3 maps. However later on there is some really cool stuff to see: Sentry guns that can be armed / disarmed, some neat fake 3D effects, a minefield, a hostage rescue, a level full of evil marines, a cool heretic level... People who make maps may find this interesting. dwrTag

Authors show a lot of technical skills, and overall decoration is very good and sometimes even excellent. However, besides too many very cramped places, poor routing and bad fights, a zillion of invisible blocking lines frustrate the gameplay horribly. As gameplay is the most important aspect, I sadly cannot give more than 2*. Quite a pity.

Interesting ideas. Lot's of cool stuff. You have to escort a lady that shows her tits. But had me running around searching what to do next in most levels. 4.5/5 - Optimus

      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.
