About This File

The first in an almost-vanilla set of levels. No port effects are used, but a good port is required to run the wad. Be on the lookout for the simple fake slopes, the fake 3D floors, and the fake mirror. The demos show a walkthrough of the level on easy mode. Demos find 0% secrets, so no surprises are given away.

Nothing very special here. I did like the fake sloped air vents. 4/16/07

This is an attractive, clever level that just seems very short; it only has 22 monsters and there's not much to it. Some clever design tricks. I couldn't actually finish it; The Thing That Seemed The Obvious Thing didn't do anything, and there wasn't anything else to press or shoot.

A tourist/puzzle map, very few monsters but ammo/health is very scarce as well so you have to be careful. I liked the emptiness of it, there is a strong desolate atmopshere and even the switches that do something on the other end of the map didn't annoy me, somehow they felt appropriate... There is another version (id=11760) with like five times more monsters but I think I don't want to play it, I like the original as it is.

Obviously the previous reviewer couldn't be arsed to open the level in Doombuilder, or whatever. It's a short but sweet map based on an earlier Deathmatch level, but twice as big and with monsters - there aren't many of them, but the ammo and health are balanced well. It's fun but not challenging (there's an arch-vile, surprisingly not the final boss, but you can easily dodge him). You don't actually have to flick the "detonator", the wall opens anyway.

      It's a very impressive megawad with a nice themed ancient Egypt atmosphere, with very nice choosing of textures to contribute to that theme, very nice architecture and impressive (and very risky) twist on the story going from ancient Egypt to alien spaceships, without using hi-pitched colors like in Ancient Aliens. Also, very tough megawad, if you're masochist enough, you can play it with Complex Doom and add LCA for more doses of pain.

      It's okay. Quite easy due to the abundance of artifacts, mana, & health. The level design is fine, nothing special. The only truly bad part was the unmarked puzzle bookcases, forcing you to wallhump the entire library as a last resort. Otherwise it's pretty simple stuff, running around finding keys and smashing monsters. The texturing and lighting aren't fantastic but aren't noticeably bad either. The only glaring issue is that many windows just show a wall textured with the sky texture rather than an area with a sky ceiling. Yet there are perfectly normal outdoor areas. Perhaps the author only figured it out skies halfway through development? Anyways, this is worth your time if you want an hour or two of simple Hexen fun.

      It's a nice wad overall, nice map design, textures and monster placement, enjoyed playing on D-Touch (GZDoom1.8) with Dude4th weapon mod.  My only complain would be the secrets, they have very few to no clues about their position.  There was a problem on E3M5 on the secrets around the squared starting room with stairs, the wall closes and let me stuck inside, had to use idclip to get out from those secret rooms.

      I recently played through this continuously twice on UV. Overall I feel this is an expertly crafted WAD from start to finish. Beautiful scenery, great soundtrack, and intense gameplay. Maybe a little too intense sometimes, and with that it's probably not a WAD I'll recommend to newbies. If less experienced players absolutely have to try it, I suggest playing on the lower difficulty modes as the included readme suggests. Describing the later maps of this WAD as "brutal" on UV is an understatement to say the least.
