About This File

Still phased after your trek through Korax's homeworld and beyond, rebuilding Cronos has been far from a flawless experience. Much of Korax's minions still wander the world, most unfound by any tasked to slay them.

That is, until one day you get a summons to the town of Riverwood, academic stronghold where all three orders mingle under the root of nature. Korax's minions have regrouped, but under who none can assess.

You arrive at Riverwood to find the town already overrun. This mission is no longer a defense on your part... it's an assault. You swear to the gods that you WILL get to the bottom of this. Readying your strength, you walk through the town gates, which swiftly close behind you....

Solid setting, atmosphere and detailing. Engaging and very well-judged gameplay. It's a shame it's only one map.

Fun map. Easy at first, a little bit harder later, and with a relatively hard boss fight. Appearance-wise, looks a bit repetitive but otherwise nice; reminded me of Heretic city maps. All in all I had fun. 4/5

A good map. I wouldn't particularly say a GREAT map, but quite a good one. Looks very nice, and playing in vanilla the visual glitches are not as bad as the author makes it sound (I've seen worse in vanilla-intended maps). The final battle is not really that hard, if you know effective tactics for fighting that enemy. My biggest complaint is the number of small, fiddly rooms in the "houses" area that don't really serve a gameplay purpose but are just decoration.

A map that is looking very similar throughout, making it hard to distinguish the different areas from eachother. Automap will be quite helpful. The game play is lacking, the item placement is rather bad. Starts off real easy, but suddenly you'll be facing slaughtaurs in pitch darkness, and if you've spent your quartz flasks that you pick up at the start, you are basically up shit creek for the rest of the map. 2/5 Kristus

Great architecture, monster placement was standard but that too works. The end was a bit too diccicult comapred to the rest of the level but it was a well set-up boss fight.

amazing. probably the best ever village/town level for hexen since the original maps (and e1m3-e1m4 from heretic). i gotta agree with another reviwer that the end fight was hard. :-( p.d

      90% of the maps are crap free and very good to excellent. Only a couple pissed me off, mostly because of excessive and confusing teleports. And if you're just after a basic Doom blast, it's probably best to avoid the secret levels. You can always warp to them later. All they really have is retro novelty value and that wears thin in about 3 minutes. Not much good for actual play. Other than that, highly recommended AND it's vanilla friendly.

      Very impressive adventure maps.  I like how the levels unfolds like a geometric strip-tease.

      Lovely puzzle-centric map that was a little more action-packed than I remember. Progression made sense and I didn't find myself wandering for too long without finding some way through the level. If you get lost in this level the automap helps a lot and gives some hints as to where the next area to explore might be hidden.

      great visuals and atmosphere, levels can actually be done quickly. custom monsters and ambushes are fine. I wish the boss map was a bit better to understand though, since I took like 15 minutes to figure out how to lower the barrier before figuring it out.

      map by map reviews are fun...   MAP01: yes easy map, but also rather tedious to max due to the infighting that you pretty much have to rely on once the arch-viles are gone. also a BFG-only map, which despite there not being basically any other weapons you really can't kill everything with anything else.   MAP02: I fucking hate platforming of this kind, especially with the ceiling bits making it even more so. when the combat is there it's pretty good. the trap room was very devious and nasty too. otherwise a forboding map.   MAP03: no real tedium thankfully and nice Ribbiks-like setpieces. only problem is the reliance of voodoo triggers when I pretty much clear out most battles quickly. best level of the set.   MAP31: the revenant wall is fun.   MAP32: this and the previous maps were treated as bonus maps. I had to god-mode this one entirely and even then it's tedious. why didn't half of those revenants teleport #OCDtrigger   one of the reasons I really don't like the slaughtermaps of this kind is just since I always aim to kill everything and get everything as quickly as humanely humanely humanely possible, I'm spending minutes killing cyberdemons on the floors of the maps and it takes up way too much time. and if that isn't much of a problem, in that I can take out the setpiece quickly enough, having to wait for the lock-in to finish lowering or something like that bores me to death. again, spending minutes waiting is a problem. maybe my mindset shouldn't be to rush through everything, but I like that kind of playstyle. it's just all that waiting, man. and the potential tedium of having to face big monsters in a scenario that takes much longer than it already is. now feel free to ignore this, or me.
