Fun big level one thing though not sure if jumping was required but I couldn't get past one area without jumping

A huge sparsely detailed techbase with mostly good design ideas, but crap texture alignment. I hope you like firing the shotgun, you'll be doing it ALOT. 500 monsters with the chaingun in a secret you'd naturally bypass and the rocket launcher almost impossible to find. I couldn't get 2 of the 15 secrets even with automap. Making us re-cross the whole massive empty level just to get to the exit room was poor form. Still, I played it to the end, and did enjoy it, tho it was a bit repetitive. 3/5

It's a compendium of E1-style architecture, although generally slightly less dense. Unlike the original levels there's 500+ monsters, and thus plenty of action. It gets a bit tedious at times - every room has a large crowd of imps, two shotgun blokes and some demons. Apart from the cacodemons there aren't any other monsters that I could see. It's a bit plain but there's lots of fighting.

Never a dull moment in this one. I felt almost dissapointed when i got to the end! Good fun if you love single barrel "a shell, an imp" action. You can provoke infights easily too, though ammo is rarely in short supply. nashgore.wad recommended for extra splattering action!

      Nice details and visuals. Maybe bitt claustrophobic but that's not weakness at all and i kinda like it. Gameplay is what ruining the map. For six months of work the gameplay feel very unbalanced and bad. Lot of stronger enemies appear on a place where you can't move properly.

      The visuals of the map is rich in details, but they look somewhat erratic and do not form a solid style. Although, some of the author's decisions looks new for me. If you be careful enough, then this map may well bring positive impressions of the gameplay. Lock a player in a narrow space with strong opponents is controversial idea, but an experienced player can get good trial from fights by finding a winning strategy. In general, the map does not leave the desire to go through it again. I recommend this map for seekers of hard and challengind gameplay.

      Just a cool ZDoom map with well balanced gameplay. I was run through it with pleasure.

      I must say that although it is a wad of terry, I would like to find a serious one like this, new enemies very interesting and original just for their attacks, bosses that have inspired me (and you can see it in my creations) and it is really amazing like this wad despite having their terry traps is entertaining and much better than many wads of 32 levels, if you want to have something interesting to play and different as long as you ignore the story is fun filled with very good boss fights, excellent music, this is an option although if you can not stand the terry traps just do not try it   5/5 to be a joke wad   Gaia74

      A quarter of a million monsters in a gigantic flat square room. It is said to be for stress testing source ports (and your PC?), otherwise it's on the other side of crazy. It took my PC nearly two minutes to load the wad (I thought it had crashed) and I took less than two seconds to die. At least it ran - the author says he never even managed that.
       
      The first screenshot has a high viewpoint because an Archvile lifted me. The second shows it in the Eureka editor; seeing only about 4% of the area, and every red square is a heavyweight monster (yellow selecting a caco).  and Doomguy is in the bottom left corner. Eureka was crawling, almost unusable - how did the author even build this?
