About This File

This wad is not for the Doom Newbie. Sizing out at 360k, I'd recommend a 486 and 8 megs and a fast video card to play it.

Man, screw that maze with the moving walls

An odd, and kind of sucky 94 level that I found more enjoyable than it had any right to be. It's like a cross between Map08 and E2M5, but uglier. The moving wall maze is either ok, (as there’s a monster release and they have some latitude to roam and flank you) or tedious to navigate. There's limited ammo initially so you must pick your fights at first. Texturing is horrible and there's little height variation, yet it's clear thought has gone into it and I am drawn to the devil-may-care creativity.

Make no mistake, this is a 1994 map, pretty large for its time and certainly limit-stretching in terms of size and monster count, but no great mapping feat: it's mostly a series of joined open arenas and closed mazes with hardly any height differences. Ammo is scarce, especially in UV, and there are a few one-way spots. The moving wall maze is worthy of note. All in all, give it a run only if you're into this kind of gameplay. 3/5 -Maes

A lot of effort must have gone into making this map so annoying.

      while it does a good job replicating episode 1 aesthetically, the levels are riddled with questionable design choices. doors that dont need to be there, a million secrets often crammed onto the back end of a level resulting in useless items unless youre not pistol starting, and just a bit too easy. for an author who claims his work is top notch and the best of the best, you shot your arrow pretty far from the bullseye my friend.

      Another one I haven't played for years and years and just revisited: Fava Beans is a solid E1 replacement and a good one if you want a chilled out, mostly really easy WAD. The level design is a cut above considering the historical context of this set, and it nails the E1 feel. Heavier monsters are introduced much earlier, but the difficulty rarely gets above casual.   E1M8 is anticlimactic and feels like a letdown after the consistency of the preceding maps, but aside from that I recommend it for an easygoing old school Doom fix. That said, it could have been harder in places. There have been better E1 replacements since, but Fava Beans is still worth a look.   Best: E1M4, E1M5, E1M7

      Not that crazy as you can think from the title, it's a interesting map with some cool design choices and some nice small puzzles as well. Fun to play and run swell.
