About This File

/story No story. Just a good level.

My goal with this level was actually rather simple: To create a level very close to those of John Romero's orig. episode 1. This in all aspects of the level. Gameplay, looks and atmosphere are very close to Romero's.

The strength of this level is the 3-4 diffe- rent routes one can take to reach the exit. They are a little different in difficulty so think carefully about what route you take.

You might feel like saying after having played it through: "Where's the detail? This is too simple!" Well, I'm sorry, but if it's going to look and play like an orig. eps. 1 level, it's not right -in my opinion- to make a level with a bunch of fancy effects, a high level of detail (possibly causing VPO's) and new textures. The only thing that make this level differ from Romero's is that there's no misaligned (no offence!) textures.

Besides all that, I just hope you'll enjoy playing it as much as I did making it!

As a drop-in replacement for the whole E1 this level falls a little short, mainly due to the lack of changing scenery and Baron boss battle at the end. However, as an extremely well thought-out techbase, with attractive Romero-style detailing, smart secrets, and clever use of easy monsters which can leave you low on health if you're not careful, this map scores full points. A perfect example of what Doom is all about. 5/5 -jj

This level does what it sets out to do; it captures the E1 style without being boring. It's pretty much dead-on except that there are many more teleporting monsters. It's roughly equivalent to E1M7 in terms of size and complexity, but with outdoorsy bits. As the other reviewers point out, this is for Ultimate Doom rather than Doom2.

Simply brilliant. Perhaps the greatest "Knee-Deep.." replacement, that manages to combine the great gameplay of "Classic Episode" with the stunning atmosphere of "Fava Beans". --5/5

      I had raised my eyebrows when I read everything in the text file, but I really enjoyed this! It's totally adorable, all the assets were obviously hand-made with love, and the puppy is wonderful :) Just wish it was longer! I hope you do some more with this, it's definitely a welcome break. Maybe add some menu assets to really sell the idea.

      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
