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

      Not a bad map, despite it's rawness in layout parts. Fun map with some interesting special effects, especially for the final part of the map. Good gameplay flow as well.

      Had a lot of fun with this mapset, which is inspired in PWADs of the Olden Tymes. The visuals are pretty ugly, but the intrincate layouts, often probably freehand drawn, compensate for that. Most maps are linear but have branches, loops and optional areas which make them interesting to explore. Only the first maps were a bit weaker in my opinion. My favourite map was probably MAP09 with the huge height differences and some cool vistas of an underground (retro)futuristic city.   Gameplay is mostly easy, with some exceptions like MAP08 but which seldom really reach "Plutonia" difficulty, although hitscanners can drain the often relatively scarce health fastly and there are some surprise traps as well. However, you're often given more than adequate weaponry, like BFGs for some cover-less archviles.   The "vedette" of this mapsets are the secret hunts: while some tripwire lift secrets were a bit too difficult to hear for my taste, I'm very fond above all of the tiny ledges and the shootable switches in unconventional locations. Huge LOL to the cute midis, above all map04 and map11, and "Children" sounded almost like the original (did Robert Miles use my soundfont)? Anyway, that mapset inspired me to look into really old maps and mapsets before the Memento Mori era. Deserves its cacoward (4,5/5).

      Thanks to a post by Maes, I found out about this wad. The Maniac MIDI is catchy and fun, and the level itself is still an enjoyable romp today. The idea that you're under the sea is a creative touch.

      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.
