About This File

You find yourself enclosed in the reception towers of a Hellspawn encampment. Of what it's protecting (or hiding) is not readily known. Somehow you got the short end of the stick in this mission and you just want to get in, clean house and get out.

Confusing at first. Tested in ZDoom, I believe :( I played in PrB+ vanilla compatibility, taking advantage of lost soul limit, but suffering due to infinitely tall corpses. Classical style, a bit pcorf-like, nice.

Excellent work by Tolwyn. Lots of fun and well balanced. Perhaps slightly weak connectivity-wise in places. Worth 4.5 stars.

The parts I played I liked, but I got tired of looking for the next switch or whatever. This map is confusing and thats what makes it hard. Plenty of ammo and probley too much health but a good looking map.

I loved this. Especially the visuals. But please don't make maps with the blocking hanging bodies near lava or test with prboom. I found it a bit confusing which way to go at times but 5/5 anyway.

Pick the right skill level, and it's not as hard. Check the stats file that came with the archive.

Another clever map, this one looks quite nice too, but is pretty tough straight from the get go, even with all the secrets and equipment from tolwyn01 carried over (nice to be able to play the tolwyn series in order of release, it has to be said). A few bits bothered me, but still 4* -Phobus

Really really nice. A little too puzzling but the atmosphere (especially in Jdoom) keeps you there. 4/5

This level is quite good-looking and plays reasonably well. However, there are too much little tricks and switches to pull just to advance in the level, so it became more frustrating than fun. If you're more puzzle-oriented player, you'd probably enjoy this.

      I recently played through this continuously twice on UV. Overall I feel this is an expertly crafted WAD from start to finish. Beautiful scenery, great soundtrack, and intense gameplay. Maybe a little too intense sometimes, and with that it's probably not a WAD I'll recommend to newbies. If less experienced players absolutely have to try it, I suggest playing on the lower difficulty modes as the included readme suggests. Describing the later maps of this WAD as "brutal" on UV is an understatement to say the least.

      Done with these settings:   - GLBoom+ 2.5.1.4. - Ultra-Violence. - Pistol starts. - Saves every 10 minutes or no saving.   This is a funny memewad of concepts and tricks from the Boom engine. It's anything alike classic conventional Doom gameplay, ergo the chosen compatibility, and brings a specific gimmick in a satirical form for each map. Aesthetics are part of the idea too, by way of monotextured layouts of the simplest geometry, such as to find out which sector/linedef has an action, and mostly grey and brown as the predetermined colours, with a bit of green and red bricks in some levels. Besides, skies made of one resized texture, and music from TV series and movies, the ideal recipe for an experience in Doom one doesn't opt for everyday.    Concept-wise, it's much appreciable to experience each map on its own, even more when the idea of carryovers will only block your progress in survival maps: better leave in bad shape and restart freshly than carry less than 15 hit points and be eternally murdered by former human ambushes. This example is one of Pinchy's numerous parodies of unconventional/inconvenient situations we've all been through in Doom. Humping walls to find progress like in primitive maps, having the screen constantly tinted because of pickups, being harassed by incoming projectiles from monsters out of your FOV, that fear of eating your own splash damage because the door can close at any moment, these are just a few of the most hilarious cases I've seen here. It wouldn't be bad to say not all of the gimmicks were clear enough to me, still don't know what's the meme in map 13. Same in some of the later maps, they seemed to have less ridiculous and more serious content, or at least not something different from earlier maps, but if anything I support that seemingly passion for zombiemen hordes, which held up my enjoyment most of the time. Funnily enough, it wasn't until the very last map that I laughed out loud at doomguy's surroundings, and there was nothing else than THE END messages under a sky in fireblu. Guess I couldn't hold my laugh for too long.   Secret-wise, it's interesting to me that in a wad of this category the only existing secrets serve as a combination of the gimmick in question and helpful extras for survival. The second map's way to hide secret sectors is quite funny indeed. As for favourite maps, I found the concepts in map 02, 04, 07, 09 and 15 to entertain me more, last one because it tickled my fancy for exploration. Some of the rest like 05, 07, 11 and 14 woke my other feelings, not only they made me laugh but also feel tense, those imps and troopers could not beat me!... not more than twice...   Overall, even if not all of the maps made sense, or had strange concepts I didn't understand, the point was to laugh, and I believe that was achieved here. Because laughter is good for the organism, check this out. My rate is 7/10.

      Not too shabby. Very intricate level with halls & rooms to explore taking up almost every square inch of the castle. You do have to look through pretty much the whole place to find the necessary keys, but you'll have fun in the process. Most of the gameplay is pretty simple run & gunning of mooks but there are a couple neat traps, like the teleporting/telefragging area and the exit. Despite the large and labyrinthine design of the level, it doesn't get boring or easy to get lost in due to the abundance of landmarks (mainly sector furniture) and high interconnectedness. Texture alignment is quite bad, but oh well. There are some replaced sounds which are a bit odd but not bad, which kind of encapsulates the whole wad.

      If you want something quick, fun, challenging, and a little nostalgic, play this.   Good job, Jimmy.

      If you want something that looks uncomplicated but fair looking, easy but not uninvolved, non-linear but small, somewhat blocky but still good architecture and very quick to beat without ever saving throughout all 9 maps then this is your WAD. I played it, I liked it. Design themes stray towards the original E4, but are not exactly the same.
