About This File

While exploring for new mines on Titan (someone fragged the old one - darn!) UAC discovered the remains of an alien base. A tight security lid was clamped on the find, referred to only vaguely as the Anomaly in reports. You've been assigned the job of breaking in and finding out whats going on.

A UAC research base and security garrison has grown up around the Anomaly, and you'll begin your visit in the Security Holding Area, where you'll be asked to show your papers. Too bad you don't have any. You'll need to explore the Vistor's Center (S), the Science Admin. Building (N), the Security Headquarters (E), and the Guard Barracks to gain the keys that'll allow you access to the Anomaly Research Area (W), where, if you're lucky, you may just find an exit back home.

It took me several tries to unwrap the map but I really enjoyed it. J Flynn still amazes me. A tricky great map.

This is actually dated August 1995. It is by Jim Flynn, who was one of the early superstars of the Doom level editing scene. This level has the author's style, but it's not one of his best. The layout is large and simple, with lots of monsters, but it's marred by some irritating puzzles, and it's a bit of a slog to play through. The design has some nice touches but seems very bare nowadays. There's a fair amount of action though.

Good, tricky (impossible in some points for ammo)

Looks a bit promising at the start: the gameplay is crappy and grindy but the design is somewhat interesting and unusual. But it drags on and on and on, and after some time you're unable to appreciate the visuals/atmosphere anymore and just want this map to end ASAP.

      Had a blast playing through this 2001 classic on UV with saves although the last 2 maps were such a ball buster I wasn't sure if I was able to complete this wad but heavy save scumming prevailed 😅. Also I personal think Map 10 is the best Archvile only map I've ever played to where I think its better than both Plutonia 1 & 2 😈

      A low-detail tunnel dungeon with tricks and traps, probably typical of dungeon crawlers. The execution falls rather flat, with too little detail and trial-and-error situations. Gameplay ends early, you don't need to go everywhere.

      It's a cute first mapset by FractalXX, a mapper mostly known to be the project leader of Gridlock 64 and some other maps for other projects. The wad is strongly reminiscent of 90s mapsets and have quite good attention to detail, as well of lots of "bright colors"  in the textures usage that is rare to see in Doom maps. All maps are pretty short (the one that take me most of the time it was 10 minutes of play) and this mapset can be finished in a half hour. Best map in the pack is MAP09, but overall  a ok episode for pass the time.

      Didn't impress me much. The maps are short and mostly simple, you start and you finish - that's it. Most of the maps are simply arena fights with some tougher monsters. 29 is a bit of hectic and I will say that I don't like secrets that obviously require an arch-vile jump. Maybe OK to be speedran on UV-Fast, or UV-Respawn - it's quite challenging - but for a calm player like me, who enjoys playing tricks with monsters and finds more thrill dodging projectiles than fast-killing stuff, this wad was quite boring. I'd honestly rather play Eternal Doom than this. (If I have another 6 months to spend, of course.) Let's see if Zone 400 will be more thrilling.    Yeah, I am seaching for maps with lots of fight puzzles, switch puzzles and moving around, that aren't as long as the ones in Eternal and Epic 2. Is there such a wad at all?

      I think it is a great megawad to improve skill of someone who just finished Doom II. Short and fun levels with great soundtrack.
