A small, fun map done in the marble style, with lots of lifts and a nice progression. Most of it is ugly, but it's a well interconnected map which makes for many possible route choices. The challenge is low, as there's plenty of ammo and health, and no tough fights, but you still get your fair share of action. One very nice secret (getting the rocket launcher) and one pointless secret. In spite of many parts looking similar, you're never lost because it's so well thought-out. Not bad! --3/5

This is a likeable level from July 1994 that feels like part of a larger set (you get some powerups near the very end). The texturing is crude but at least consistent and although the level is nothing spectacular, it's pleasant. Short. The rocket launcher is silly, because the layout is too cramped to use it. The toughest monster is a single cacodemon. The zip file also includes a photo of the designer, who has a moustache and a mullet; even in 1994 mullets were a bit old-fashioned.

      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.
