About This File

Given your success with the UAC mining base and the Anomaly investigation, it was inevitable that you get picked for this foray into the Titan Farside Research Base. Oh well. Rumours have it that some prototypes of alien technology are being tested here. Please investigate and report.

Another in the Titan series. One of the simplest if you calmly take the time to find the hidden weapons. Moderately long but entertaining. Abstract.

This WAD contains a normal amount of Jim Flynn's creativity (and ugliness). For his best maps, see Eternal Doom. This crazy map, however, is plagued by difficult-to-execute jumps and pointless swithunts. 2/5 as I found it almost unplayable; still you may take a look at this level for its originality (vdgg)

I remember first getting into WADs, Jim Flynn's levels were always a favorite. His Titan series is pretty amazing for 1995. ~valkiriforce

What can I say? Jim Flynn... great guy, great level designer, Team Eternal/TeamTNT member, a Compuserve member in the long-since gone Action Games Forum back in the glory days of PC gaming, single-handed coder of the BOOM DOOM source port, has the same name as the main character in the movie TRON, and this WAD is great as well :) 'Nuff said?

This is a challenging map from 1995. The layout is simple but nice, and it's looking good with some neat editing tricks (considering the time of its creation). In addition to the monster fights, there are some clever riddles and puzzles to solve before you can leave the map. Recommended! 4/5 -Milian

      If this was the 2001 year I would rate this 5/5. But in 2022 this wad is nothing but a lame retro.   I got the feeling that this wad was trying to showcase the advanced Zdoom capabilities rather than trying to create a good game play, and even with the advanced features the design still feels flat!   HMP or lower players will probably enjoy this as it is a below average difficulty with plenty of ammo/items.   I wanted to rate this 2.5/5 stars, but since half star cannot be selected I rated it 3 stars. We really need to be able to select half a star in rating.

      I love SkillSaw's work and this is a magnificent wad, but I am writing this review to mark it for folks like me, who would love the level design, but wouldn't connect with the gameplay. Which is fine, no wad is made for every player.   What didn't work for me in this megawad - as far as I checked it out, playing several levels from different packs - was gameplay geared towards maneuverability and making it without strong weapons and much ammo.   To me Doom is a shooter. When faced with a lot of strong enemies, I would like to be able to get them down with a double shotgun or a rocket launcher. These levels are more about running around quickly with a gun, a berserk pack and a shotgun with only a few shells. In he middle of the level you typically get a chaingun.   And that just turns the game into a platformer for me, which is fine, just not my kind of gameplay.   The design and music are top notch. Even the menu is eye candy. I wanted to adore this project, but I just cannot connect with it.   I will, however, keep it on my hard drive and return to it from time to time. Will update this review if I ever get it.

      A small and frantic map for deathmatch that unluckily doesn't got me too much into it. Single player placement is a joke. The only interesting thing i can think are: Why a Batman Forever map, over the fact that shares the music with a Dwango compilation (maybe Dwango 5) by U2, used as well in other doom maps of the time? That's the only piece of correlations between these two franchises i can think of, actually. The second thing that i was thinking is: you known that exist another deathmatch map based upon batman years before the more well known Batman total conversion by ACE Team? Isn't this crazy?
