About This File

I originally made this map as an exercise in building complex maps in DEU II. It took for ever to get the lighting effects and texture alignments correct. I started running out of RAM while working on the level so I left the outside of the castle pretty simple. I wasn't intending to make it a playable level, but everyone who saw it insisted that I pass it along, so here it is. Chock full of monsters and weapons. Pretty easy on difficulty one, nearly impossible to defeat the cyberdemon on difficulty four. I don't know anyone who could finish this in nightmare mode (let me know if you do!). Plenty of ammo and power ups to finish at any level of difficulty. After you kill the bad guys take a moment to look at the scenery. I spent nearly all of my time trying to make the KEEP look really cool. Sort of a modernized castle with a few towers, a study, a pipe organ, library, chapel, bathroom (needs cleaning), dining room, kitchen, and parlour. I particularly like the chapel, tons of work trying to balance all of the two sided linedefs needed to create the arches.

Not without it's flaws, mostly a product of the editing capabilities at the time. As I remember DEU II myself quite well I can recognise that and let it slide... Playing on UV though, the monster placement is unbelievably dense and unforgiving. I did beat it after a few attempts, but even the start can kill you right away if you're not careful. Visually quite impressive for DEU II and 1995, as well! -Phobus

Way too difficult, assholish enemy placement and very cramped corridors. Fun to play and looks pretty darn good for 95, but nothing too special here.

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.

      Starts with all monsters with their backs to you, and you might as well leave it that way and just listen to the music. One big rectangular room with no finish switch. They couldn't even make the rectangle properly - freehand I guess. Kill the monsters if you want, it's easy.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.
