About This File

Okay, for starters: THIS LEVEL IS LARGE. VERY, VERY, VERY LARGE. It has ~2400 sectors and ~2300 monsters on UV. I would NOT recommend playing this level if you have a really old computer. Second, this map is pretty hard. 100% kills and secrets on skill 4 is possible, but difficult (I've done it with a lot of saving and reloading). Other than that, it's fun with a lot of action. So enjoy it!

Map is quite good, but too bad it's only one map. Took me a bit over one hour. ~4/5

Awesome wad. Some of the quirks some folks believe to be flaws are what I liked most about it. It's atmospheric, and finally beating it gives a feeling of accomplishment.

It's maps like this with overly dense populations of high-level monsters that make the BFG9000 and super shotgun boring to use.

A bit too much monsters and hard fights, but the detail is fucking great, not just the object details but the shadows too, amazing stuff!!! Played it in the easy and then hurt me plenty, tomorrow I will give it a kick in UV! *****

Very hard and interesting map with 2257 monsters. First part of the map is more inspirated than the second, but 5/5

It's spectacular and very impressive, almost as if the player was a miniature man in a giant monster-filled world. But the gameplay is basically a lot of peeking around corners and sniping off large amounts of monsters individually (there are simply too many to charge at) and if you take a wrong step the volume of projectiles kills you in an instant. But four stars for the spectacle alone.

This is a good example of why monster-packed doesn't always mean action-packed. The map is boring as hell. Imagine playing Deus Vult without a BFG. It's just wading through monster-filled rooms using ssg+rl most of the time. Took me 80 minutes (maptime) to beat it which is way too long for a map this size. The last fight gave it +1 star. 3/5 - Belial

Ridiculous. In a good way. I'm very surprised that you kept the detail level so high while packing the map full of monsters at the same time. My favorite single-map WAD. 5/5

This level is larger, harder and takes longer than my mother after she's chowed down on three bowls of chili. But like all fat women, it's just more pushing for the cushion. I believe all you fat connoisseurs will love this one, and every one else should also give this a try. But becareful, you may get arrested for incest. 5/5

      It's a very impressive megawad with a nice themed ancient Egypt atmosphere, with very nice choosing of textures to contribute to that theme, very nice architecture and impressive (and very risky) twist on the story going from ancient Egypt to alien spaceships, without using hi-pitched colors like in Ancient Aliens. Also, very tough megawad, if you're masochist enough, you can play it with Complex Doom and add LCA for more doses of pain.

      It's okay. Quite easy due to the abundance of artifacts, mana, & health. The level design is fine, nothing special. The only truly bad part was the unmarked puzzle bookcases, forcing you to wallhump the entire library as a last resort. Otherwise it's pretty simple stuff, running around finding keys and smashing monsters. The texturing and lighting aren't fantastic but aren't noticeably bad either. The only glaring issue is that many windows just show a wall textured with the sky texture rather than an area with a sky ceiling. Yet there are perfectly normal outdoor areas. Perhaps the author only figured it out skies halfway through development? Anyways, this is worth your time if you want an hour or two of simple Hexen fun.

      It's a nice wad overall, nice map design, textures and monster placement, enjoyed playing on D-Touch (GZDoom1.8) with Dude4th weapon mod.  My only complain would be the secrets, they have very few to no clues about their position.  There was a problem on E3M5 on the secrets around the squared starting room with stairs, the wall closes and let me stuck inside, had to use idclip to get out from those secret rooms.

      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.
