About This File

This is style-wise a mix of the traditional mountain military base, the generic sewage processing facility and the weird off-world alien base, to put it bluntly. This is the conceptual mix of many weird ideas assimilated during a long time. There are huge, open areas with large battles as well as tight infighting in small dark corridors. I even put in some things that I usually consider to be evil and wrong, such as crusher mazes, jumping puzzles and, god forbid, a sequence where you run from cover to cover while being shot at from a distance by a cyber- demon you don't have enough ammo to take down.

Oh, by the way: Try to get 100% kills on this map. I haven't succeeded myself, but I'm pretty sure it can be done. Really.

It sure as hell looks pretty! Some of the most intelligent architecture we've seen in a long time together with an excellent choice of textures and flats! Add this up with a killer classic Doom 2 gameplay and we have ourselves a winner! Patrick, you are great! -Chris Hansen

Could be improved with texture alignments and a better sky but this is very nice stuff with a classic Doom 2 feel. Also you can SR to the exit switch (which cut my run short unfortunately). 5/5 DWRtag

Classical (without the jumping puzzles)

This is a nice, medium-sized map. It's quite hard with some really challenging traps and fights, but it's achievable. You'll find tech-halls, a nice outdoor area and many nukage areas, a good variety of wide, open areas and narrow rooms and hallways; the ambience is diversified but coherent and it's detailed enough. Layout is complex without being confusing. Good work! 4/5 -Milian

Somehow the map doesn't manage to look pretty. But it's detailed, and the gameplay is quite diversified and fun, fun, fun. Recommended!

I have played many levels better than this and it's not really that detailed either. 3/12/07

      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.
