REally good and well interconnected map in the style of E1 with some hints of E2 and Doom 2 E1, some cool new textures and even some boom effects like a colored deep water pool, highly recommended to give it a play! Is a fun map!

A nice big classic-feeling techbase, with some very modern detailing. Lots of health and ammo around so you're never really in too much danger, though it's balanced so you have to switch weapons occasionally. Big level which has good landmarks so you can make your way around easily, though you have to backtrack a fair bit, especially for some of the optional parts like the plasma gun. Overall a good honest map with no nasty tricks, very enjoyable. 4/5

Great fun, and very old-school. It has an E1 theme, with a simple clean design. It's fairly big but not to navigate around. In fact it's not hard period, I never really felt that my life was in danger, but that's okay; the real world has enough stress without Doom adding more. I play Doom to relax. My only complains are that it goes on too long, and the last section involves a lot of wandering back and forth.

A huge Doom 1 base, quite sparsely populated and with a lot of health\ammo provided, so an experienced player will beat it easily. I, however, still really enjoyed it because the exploration aspect I thought was very good and I liked how much space I was given. Play if you feel like spending 20 minutes in a large techbase and you're mentally ready to sg\cg some barons and groups of cacodemons.

Niiice, the secrets aren't too hard to find, the fights are not very hard but still not too easy, ammunition and life are well balanced, and waht I liked the most is the way the map manages to keep you aware of what you're opening so you don't get lost!

Well-implemented level in mostly E1 style. Good layout, architecture, texture use and decoration. Gameplay @ UV varies quite well within the limited set of DooM1 monsters, but is easy - at least when the chainsaw or berserk is found. Good use of secrets. Sadly the last third of the level is dominated by a switch hunt. Overall: small 4/5, so absolutely worth a play for E1 addicts.

This is a quite large and complex map in common UAC-base style. I had to concentrate a bit in order to not loose orientation and to not miss some areas. The fights are ok, though not overly hard. You're provided with enough ammo to give every monster a special greeting. Some nice secrets made this map a nice trip, though with regard to gameplay and appearance, it's nothing overly special or new. 3/5 -Milian

A well designed map with some great ideas. The layout was very interesting. It is organized enough to prevent getting lost too frequently. There is one part of the map that requires a "secret" to be found in order to leave a room - something I felt was a bad idea on the mappers behalf. There was also far too much ammo and not enough challenging fights. Skilled Doomers might enjoy the exploration, but find the game play boring. Still, everyone should find enjoyable aspects of this map.

      the tenth week of dwspd has the theme of "flooded city" which is a nice echo back to the very first of the dwspds which was "lava city". here we have seven maps, all deal with flooded areas, and the quality of these maps is increasing as you go along. first map is definitely not city, but does show the fake floor trick, then you climb just one building to the top. second map also isn't a city but more of a temple that looks strange (plus having to rocket barons in tight halls). third map, uh, there's not much to this one but at least it did what it could thematically. fourth map brings all the carnage underwater while allowing for an optional cyberdemon fight. fifth tries but doesn't really have that city vibe, yet at least had some interesting things to it. the best two maps are MAP06 (in theme it's the best) and MAP07 (a concoction of buildings strewn over the nukage, having to go across each one until you get a radsuit so you can tackle the center). well there's more maps, and it feels a lot more fun than some of the previous ones.

      Pretty meh mapset, this wad crashes on vanilla doom 2 since a ceiling texture is acting funny in MAP01, in boom 2.02 it shows perfectly. Best of the bunch is MAP04, but overall, meh mapset with some weirdness.

      for the ninth installment of dwspd, the theme was to "try and rebuild E1M1 without looking at the original". wow, THAT is a low map turnout, at a measly two. guess it was a lot more difficult than some would have bothered with. but let's see what we got. the first is rather accurate as far as actual layout, though texturing and monster placement is assuredly different. but this one has problems, namely one of the secrets is one-time only as well as an exit switch that doesn't work. it's odd for me to say the real winner was actually the second of the two, despite it looking less accurate, it was much more fun, a Go 2 It mini-version of Hangar with a few hordes of monsters done proto-slaughter style.

      for the eighth installation of dwspd, the theme was to "build a warehouse inside a castle". or is it to build a castle and then a warehouse inside it? who knows. anyways, this is easily the weakest dwspd thus far, with a very low map turnout of only 6 maps, and none of them are actually all that well done theme-wise. sure, the combat is up there, but let's see. MAP01 and MAP06 don't have anything that really pertains to warehouse per se. MAP02 is incredibly mediocre overall and it's possible to prevent yourself from ever leaving due to the lift switch being one-time only. MAP03 seems nice with the crates in places but it doesn't seem finishable due to one lift never rising to the red key AND an impassable linedef in front of the exit. MAP04 and MAP05 are the most interesting, though each has a share of problems with MAP04 for some reason having invisible crates while MAP05 tries for a siege scenario, starting in the warehouse and giving all the supplies, but just try killing everything out there when you can't head back up once you fall down. yes, I'm fully aware that these maps don't get bug-tested or play-tested before release, but it's always best to leave the best possible impression.

      for the seventh iteration of dwspd, the theme was to "build a Doom 1 level in Episode 1 style". this theme contrasts quite well with the previous theme of building a final level of Doom 2 in dwspd006, but the familiarity of Episode 1 style levels in E1Mx is bound to put a damper on the overall score of this one. you'll notice that Fredrik isn't here this time around, so there's not much to be wowed by his great speedmaps. the rest of the maps are just speedmap juice, they are usually mediocre and have a few bugs, some are more blatant than others (the first map you can just skip everything since Blackterror forgot to tag the exit door as a key door). also you'll need to warp to E1M9, since E1M3 does not go to the secret map. unlike the others that have generally mixed quality in many different mapslots, the levels actually seem to get better the more you go through. the first few maps are shit and are really small in size, but the layouts and monster count increases and things get more fun as you go along.
