About This File

This wad was originally created for an ancient project called the 9th Gate. It has been about 5 years in the making and I finished this level like 3 years ago! (It took a long time, but I finally finished it and was pleased with it).

I've replayed the level today and I thought it would be a good idea to release it as I spent a lot of time on this and the 9th Gate is taking far too long to finish.

Here is one of my best levels... probably :D. I made this 3 years ago (after ROTGS... I think... not sure...). This is Also another of my rare Vanilla levels (has no special effects, relies on good gameplay to make the level good... Curunir should be pleased ;) ).

A top level. Agree that there's perhaps a little too much health but makes a change from ridiculously ball-breaking exercises. Gameplay is very good, and it looks wonderful, especially from the courtyard area. - pritch

Amazing how you can actually make smashing good maps when you quit the strangeness/detail wankery ;) - Curunir 5/5

One of the best Doom I levels ever made. A great atmosphere, inspired architecture and an impressive layout combine to make a near perfect level. If you are after a tough level than you may want to skip this one: there is to much ammo and health. Despite this, the level is far from boring with many great fights. Overall this gets a 5/5 - Phil

Pretty nice architecture in some places, dude. I especially liked the exit room & the blue key hallway. I give this 3/5 since it was pretty much a walkthrough for me on UV. Way too much ammo around when compared to the amount of enemies. You could've slaughtered a LOT more enemies with that much ammo around. -Kristian Aro aka Nebula

Too much ammo, mediocre design and boring gameplay. Nice texture usage and a good music track though. 3/5

Very good level, though way too much ammo to dispose of the baddies. The outside courtyard is easily the toughest fight of the wad, if you can pass that without dying, the rest isn't too bad. Health wasn't an issue for the most part, and with a great level design and good music to go along earns this 4 stars and a recommended play.

A massive, detailed map that unfortunately fails in the game play department. This map quite possibly has more ammo than an entire episode of Doom, and 90% of it is not needed. The plasma gun and rocket launcher can be used almost exclusively once they are obtained. Other problems include decorations that get in the way of battles, and tedious ducking and shooting through doors. There isn't much challenge, despite the 300+ monster count. Playtesting was desperately needed on this map...

This is a nice wad with a very classical feeling. It's the gothic style with rocks and hollows. The detailing is nice. Gameplay is challenging in places though never too hard, due to plenty of ammo and health. It's a Doom 1 wad and maybe it's because of this that I missed a bigger variety of monsters. But overall it's been quite entertaining. 4/5 -Milian

Your map is boring. You should never think that your map is good just because it's big or detailed. Gameplay and flow are both poorly done. All the high hit point enemies are overused, RL is too hard to find, no engagement, no surprises, and nothing worthwile in this package. Don't tell me this map has good flow because it simply does not. If you disagree, then you really don't know the first thing about mapping. 3/5

      This was great. Great joke wad and a great Terry trap collection. Instead of the generic "Oh it's a well made map at first then BOOM" it's actually a well-made megawad that simply has them as little traps that can be avoided. It's able to be completed, seriously. That's new. I especially love the final boss and highly suggest using a cheat against him. Trust me, do it, it'll be worth it.

      Are you up for a brutal, non stop challenge through detailed, but bland environments? The Secret Energy doesn't let up, so it's either a low health slaughter map or a speed runner's dream to get from switch to switch, all while enemies constantly spawn in with each button press. There's little health for such meaty enemies and even on the easiest difficulty, it's a slog to kill them all. The place is so big and centralized, you might miss where you need to go next. No arrows, the switches are around corners and walls inside of rooms that may or may not have opened.   It feels like a punishing experience from the first room. It fills with imps, then pinkies, then flying enemies, then revenants and a cyber demon. The entire map is like that. Enter a room and it will flood in via waves. Each wave opens up something new and you need to find where that new thing is. Is it a switch on a wall? Is it a switch inside of a pillar? Did a door just open up? Are you supposed to go back into the main corridors of the complex? At least on my first play through, I felt there was a poor flow to the level.   The game has its detail, but detail with greens, browns, a few blue wires across the floors, perhaps to guide you to the next area. It was all lost on me and blurred together into a jumble. While the structures of each new room was different, it's the color scheme and darkness that stayed the same.   Give it a try. There is something redeemable in here for those hardcore enough to endure the first room, let alone the entire map.

      Believe the hype, Sand Chain is indeed a terrible map. Not terrible like oh this must be someone's first map or designed by a team of kinder gardeners and their friend in second grade who can use DoomBuilder, I'm talking hall of mirror walls, coupled with the fact you can go through the game's exit switches. The map is short and sweet, which only adds to how terrible it is. The level is a single hallway with... get this... a bend! Oh stay with me here... and then after that bend, there is a bank of switches! Yeah, that's it. The level isn't meant for Nightmare, but it should become everyone's first accomplishment of, "I can beat this level on nightmare."

      I suppose in an artistic way, the hall of mirror affect on all walls is to disorient the player, so they miss the big twist at the end. Thus costing speed runners valuable seconds on their first play through. The big twist being the bend. Other than that, there are plenty of shotgun shells, shotgun troopers and health to ensure you make it to the end of this brutal and rigorous test of endurance over the course of 5 - 30 seconds.

      This is the level that has become famous, because everyone needs to play it themselves to add their two cents of "it's crap" to the pile of reviews that will no doubt entice more people to play this game. It's a gorgeous display of everything wrong without the annoyance of having to play it for longer than a full minute. Complete with someone from an aol email to spice up it's true 1995 feel... despite being made in 2009.   * slow clap * You've done it. You've found a new twist on terrible.

      I guess this was meant to be a serious wad, just using a trick to make the C-Demon hard to see. I don't think it was a deliberate troll of the style that caught on later, eg Sand Chain and the Terry wads. IMHO it nowhere near holds the record for "worst wad ever" (even if it did once) so it is now "over-rated" in that respect. There are wads where you die quicker (eg "Stupid Benchmark #1"), and wads with worse graphics( eg "Sand Chain").  TBH, after all the hype I was a bit disappointed, I was expecting worse LoL.
