About This File

A fun, well-crafted wad. There's some nice lighting effects, long halls, twisty passages, enourmous courtyards, some suprising connections between areas, a few reasonably clever layout tricks and a quite extraordinary use of an elevator at the end. It is challenging without being ridiculous; no mobs of cacademons here, thank goodness. Vince put a lot of work into making this look good; you won't have that depressing "generic" feel ("ooh! Concrete!") while playing this wad. --Barry

Bad King John

Spare the self-congratulations please, it's unpolished. No attention to aligning textures; the 5-star reviewer must have missed the computer texture door track in an otherwise marble wall - which moves with the door like every other door track. Some boring long passages with a trooper round the next corner. There are interesting bits but it needed more work.

It's a sign of the times that the author promises not to have "mobs of cacademons" (sic). It's hard to get angry about this level; it's just very, very dull, and I couldn't find anything specifically Doom 2 about it. It has a lengthy maze, which is dull, the architecture is mostly right-angled corridors, and the only bits that approach goodness are the first shot (there's a nice shadow) and the very last room, which at least had a bit of creativity. This is a sort of graph paper level.

I liked it - but you can get stuck in a couple places

      Awesome stuff, The description gave way to more imagination while playing the wad, love it. Textures looked beautiful. It presents quite a challenge for the weary heretic.

      A challenging but well thought out and balanced map. Skill is rewarded and mistakes punished.

      Sorry , I'm too lazy to translate my long review in french without using a translator , so I will summarize in one sentence : It's a really chalenging map with a moody but magical atmosphere , I really loved it.   You can check my detailed review here , I hope google translator will work well :   http://doomfrance.forumactif.com/t4691-review-maps-de-paul977#141921   Here is my demo in Ultra-violence , I didn't have enough ammo to kill the very last vile. :(   DEMO

      This is an amazing piece of work. I got pissed trying to find the red key but thats just my own dumbness I guess. You got slopes and sectors that spin and everything!

      Oh yes, really good idea having a random switch that does nothing other thain squish the player
