About This File

A fairly simple level with a couple of tricks in it, good for all modes of gameplay. Watch out for the Spectres in the darker areas...

Found the blue key easily enough, the clue is easy enough to see as long as you pay attention but did not find any of the other secrets. Map is not bad for it's day with the textures used appropriately and the rooms not looking as boxy as most 94 wads. However the map is very short and the battles are not very fierce. This is ashame as it really lets the experience down and makes an otherwise average map fall below the average expectations 2/5.

This is a very early level; the file is dated January 1994 (which must be wrong). Unsurprisingly, it's very crude and simple, although to be fair what *is* there is done fairly well, much better than 90% of the 1994 levels. The layout, textures etc are decent, although it doesn't amount to anything. Unless you IDBEHOLDA you'd never find the secrets, one of which has the essential blue key (at least there is a clue, but it's badly done).

      Pretty good. The combat was fun and design wasn't bad at all.

      Despite its age, nice details and well designed. Way how blue key is hidden is really clever. But map is dark and cramped. Enemies are only imps and hitscanners.

      Pretty good map in E1 base style (except Doom2 monsters) Nice design but there some texture alignment issues.

      Despite the browns and grays that are prominent in this megaWAD, I found it to be fun. I also found it to be quite the challenge. The first map gives you a taste of what to expect in terms of enemy encounters. The author makes good use of mid-tier enemies to apply pressure on the player. Monster count for most of the maps barely breaks the 150 mark but, as said before, the use of mostly mid-tier enemies puts pressure on the player. I also like how the megaWAD handles level progression. Most of the levels you go through consist of caves, cities, islands, and tech bases in space. In fact, there's only one real Hell-like level and even it's within the confines of the moon base you fight through in maps 21 - 30.   About the only gripes I have with this megaWAD are with regards to maps 32, 29, and 30. I know the text file and map 31 give warnings about map 32 but there really should be some kind of alternate exit in map 32 instead of trapping you in place if you don't pass one of the puzzles. I wasn't a fan of how close quarters the IoS fight was in map 29, especially since it can get cramped quickly with monster spawns. Finally, the randomization of what keys spawn during your escape in map 30 isn't fun either. 10 minutes seems like plenty of time but between navigating the vent system (again) without light goggles and dealing with mid-tier enemies, that 10 minutes can get eaten up really quick.   Overall, it's still a fun megaWAD. I'd recommend at least giving it a shot.
