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

      Do you like to hump?    Well this is the wad for you, at least at first. map01's progression involves wonky teleporters and keys stashed in secrets. While the next two maps depart from that, you should still be prepared to mash your soft parts into non-standard triggers.    The layouts consist of blocky rooms or spaghetti strands of hallways, with monsters are dumped into these spaces more or less randomly, and it all gives off the impression of SLIGE after getting drunk (if computer programs could do that).    This old set does have its charms, though. The author outdoes SLIGE in the novelty of trigger use; map02 had a neat room where you press a "switch" to constantly raise the floor level of a large outdoor courtyard. The texturing can be funny at times: map01 dresses up a whole room in a key strip indicator, and then outdoes that by painting the next room in scrolling sky. (Yes that is a plus.) There is also fun to be had if you like blowing clumps of stuff up with barrels, the rocket launcher, or cell weapons -- albeit only a modest amount of that. Clocking in at around 10-15 minutes of play, I would choose this for a speedrun-type blind race.   Note: 100% kills on map02 is impossible, as it contains a zombieman standing guard over the void space.

      Pretty good looking map in the visual parts, including some really neat light effects as well of some other cool looking touches all over the map. Too bad that the gameplay department doesn't hold with the look of the map, since is the most boring DM map i've played in a while, at least with bots. And that's a shame!

      A pretty fun map with a pretty well done texturing and theme usage, maybe the layout is too symmetric for modern standards? Overall, a very enjoyable experience.

      A map based upon a previously reviewed map "Hexen Morgue" with better layout and thing placement overall, but doesn't have the trident in the original map, kind of disappointing since i wanted to see that, it was the only nice part of the original map. There's two missing floor textures, missing textures for the surprise crushers and a player spawn in the ending room whit no exit? WTF? Overall, a nice change from the original.

      Proxima Centauri's hot start throws you headlong into what is quite enjoyable combat for the time, a small sandboxy city brawl with imps and pinkies and hell knights and revenants after you, mancubi around corners, pain elementals to take out, and lots of roaming and sniping zombies of every type. That is the highlight, and it's all graced with cheesy sound replacements and James Bond music. The '90s.    It's plain-looking by today's standards but has character, and there's a nifty hyper-dithered nebula sky replacement, although fans of Downtown (lol) won't get their verticality fix. The progression is charmingly incoherent. Lots of random illogical random teleports from one area to another, a lot of what feel like secrets but are actually unmarked … wait you use that key where again?    The major fault is that the puzzly exploration parts are very divorced from the action. It's easy to kill 95% of the monsters before making much actual progress, since most of them are roaming about and demand your attention. Then you  end up with five minutes of teasing out what to do and where to go to exit, in silence, knowing you won't even get to use the extra "fake secret" resources you can find on much.
