A really short but very intense single player map.

I had fun and I loved the detail in it. Plus the wad wasn't ridiculously hard like some of the wads that people praise the socalled "gameplay" like Hell Revealed 2

Ok first off "very intense" bullshit. This map suffers from mostly horrible monster placement, A painfully linear layout and excessive detail that makes moving around a pain the ass. 3/5

Quite strange level: it's overdecorated far beyond functional. Actually it looks a bit like a lego box. Besides that, the map is short, layout basically simple and gameplay poor. Small 3* because of the huge amount of work.

Cool wad. Why are so many people complaning about the gameplay, I thought the gameplay was just fine. Well as Tormentor666 says, "100% visual beauty + 100% detail addiction + 100% copy n' pasting + 100% sector/line count + 0% gameplay = 400% overall, so who cares?!" 5 stars -soft_haxorz

A ton of pointless detail used to cover up lacking gameplay and boring, linear map design. Very average. 3/5 - Belial

The detail in this wad is pretty outstanding. Unfortunetly though it doesn't serve any real purpose in the wad - although it does lend itself to the atmosphere in certain parts, while in others it just looks ridiculous and much overdone. 4/5 for the effort. If this map had some good flow techniques and was structurally appealing it would be a 5.

Don't play this one expecting to find interesting gameplay, surprises, or challenging action. The monsters are an afterthought. The real star here is the detailing. I enjoyed seeing what the author was capable of detail-wise, but it also made me realize how important gameplay really is. 4 stars is my rating, entirely for the detailing.

Anyone who says this focuses too much on architecture ... please! The level may be one of the most detailed I've seen, but it does not slack the gameplay either! 5 stars.

Great detail, but the lack of a good tough final makes the gameplay average overall 4/5

A nice little level. I particularly like the part where you come across the imps and the lost souls in that nice little formation. I yelled, "Hey assholes!" as I let 'em have it with ol' double-barrel

Decent techbase with too many unnnecessary sectors. Gameplay is quite linear, but the atmosphere is nice. 4/5

It's always easier to complain than to do better yourself. So I'd say it's fine, still it is indeed linear, cramped and a few times quite hard, but not unbeatable. Lots of detail. So I'd say 3,5 to 4 for the effort. Otherwise 3 for everything else.

Why is it people are obsessed with detil? There is no line where people are happy. A map is either underdetailed, or over detailed. You should just accept the wad as it is. And the detail and architecture in this wad is to boot. An impressive job, deserved it's place on the caco's. 5/5 - evilhomerdoomer

Yeah, this is the one map I'm surprised to see in the awards. Take away the detailing and it's really just average.

4/5, mainly because of the detial. The gameplay was fair, but it could have been better. The detail got in the way sometimes too, which can be an annoyance to other players - Kirby

      Possibly my favorite Ultimate Doom megawad. Although its first half feels like DTWID, it quickly becomes a much more twisted and demented take on the familiar techbase/hell aesthetic. Expect well hidden secrets, tight corridors, and some tough encounters in large, complex levels. In keeping with Ult Doom's tone, NaturalTvventy layers the atomphere on thick to create levels that feel genuinely hostile and evil, even more so than in the original.    If you have a soft spot in your heart for the original Ultimate Doom, this megawad is a must play. NEIS makes you realize how rock solid the original Doom formula is, even without the SSG and revenants.

      An odd wad in which you play a Hexen class while fighting Heretic monsters in Heretic-textured levels. Surprisingly, it works pretty well, and is an interesting change of pace from either game. It retains Hexen's hub design, although it's not at all puzzley, just a "go and collect 3 items and return to the hub" quest. It's very combat-focused (there's almost 400 enemies in the final level), but unlike some Heretic maps, it doesn't end up feeling like a slog. Perhaps Hexen's weapons are just more powerful than Corvus's. The level design is very good, besides a couple of sore spots (the cramped areas of the lava level, the metal maze in the final level). The boss, D'Sparil, is much easier to kill than he was in Heretic; he probably should've been modded to have a better chance against Hexen's warriors.

      A fun heavily modified tougher version of Doom 1's E1M6 dated back in April of 94(yes same month of origwad). Its starts a bit hectic but with so many shotgun guys and plenty of health throughout the map, its actually not that hard to go through. However like any 94 wad, it has typical misaligned textures, a few HOMs, and had to use noclip cheat to grab the last card key due to ceiling being too low to pass under. Despite its age and a few minor stuff, its a fun wad from 1994 and I would recommend to give it a try :)

      Excellent wad for Hexen fans. It stays true to the style/spirit of the original game while introducing new ideas. The level / hub design is interesting, the combat is well-balanced, texturing is well-done and well-aligned, and there are plenty of interesting scripted events. The wings are used in a very smart way - you're able reach many previously unreachable items and paths. The only thing I disliked was the "boss" of the final level. I won't spoil it, but it's quite disappointing.   Unfortunately there is a bug in The Castle Of Fluft - the flame mask switch is not set to "repeatable", so if you try to use it without the prerequisite mask, you won't be able to use it again when you do. If you encounter this bug, type "puke 10" to activate the script the mask normally would.

      This seems like a semi-hidden gem. The author's other WAD Crimson Canyon won a Cacoward, though I prefer this one.   It certainly lives up to its namesake. The textures are all Hell's green marble and blood, supplemented with custom textures including some modified Giger designs and some creepy sprites I recognize from Monolith's Blood. The map designs are seriously contorted. It's probably a divisive aspect of the set. In some levels the angular layouts wrap around themselves in a jagged mesh, creating devilish mazes with slightly obscure progression, and where fireballs can fly at you from different parts of the map. Other parts are darker and more claustrophobic. It's all a totally hostile atmosphere.   There are some common themes gameplay-wise but you'll know them by map 2. A big one is ammo constriction, especially on UV. Certain maps seem near unbeatable without finding key secrets.   This was actually one of the first WADs I completed a few years ago, and on revisiting it it feels very fresh. Like most memorable WADs, it rides on strong concepts and some devilish gameplay while targeting a distinctive theme.
