About This File

A 21st century Heretic episode covering many styles of level, both traditional and unusual as well. Having achieved everything I wanted to in DooM 2, I have decided to move on to Heretic 'cos it's just as easy to make levels for it as it is for DooM. (although I will return to DooM afterwards) It's also a great game and I thought of some great ideas, many using Heretic's special features.

If you love puzzles, then prepare to be tested, because there are a wide variety of fiendish puzzles in this wad, covering all of Heretic's features, from the regular to the weird and wonderful!

Tests of skill also feature in this wad, again covering a wide range of Heretic's features.

For those of you who like secrets, there are at least 5 in each level. (quite often more than that....) And, once again, you'll be pleased to know that the secret level is VERY well hidden.....

And you'll be even more pleased to know that I have made an effort with the lighting this time! (even though the lack of texture/flat based lighting makes it a bit harder to do in Heretic, as there is only thing based lighting, which should all oscillate)

In short, prepare to be challenged, in more ways than one!

Great effort, but the maps aren't the best. The voodoo dolls littered around look cool, but get in the way. Extra points for coop warps! Most guys never think of this.

I would describe this was as pretty freakin' awesome if it wasn't for the fact that you have placed voodoo dolls all around the place, so it is easy to get damaged when you aren't even doing anything. The outside of the castle could have had it's aesthetics upped a bit, and the final level looks very cartoonish. Loved all the elemental puzzles though.

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.

      Starts with all monsters with their backs to you, and you might as well leave it that way and just listen to the music. One big rectangular room with no finish switch. They couldn't even make the rectangle properly - freehand I guess. Kill the monsters if you want, it's easy.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.
