Doom I & Doom II DEATHMATCH. RECOMMENDED: 4 player network, with fast machines. (i.e. all DX/33 and up.) Was playable with 4 players on two DX/33's and two SX/25's, but it wasn't fast. This is a stalking level.
Although it seems large, there are so many overlappings and connections and teleporters that it shrinks a bit. Nevertheless, it's a _big_ place, which makes it easy for someone who knows the level well to stalk.
Weapons aren't plentiful, you have to go spelunking to get to 'em. I designed the level so that if you just fragged your opponent you know where he's gonna go because all the weapons are laid out in the TUNNELS. Fortunately for you, there are multiple sniper points around all weapons with the tools of the sniper, the chaingun and shotgun, in easy reach in case you forgot yours. This area works great for 3 or 4 players, but with only 2 the TUNNELS don't do their job quite so well.
There are lots of suicide areas. Learn them. Beware them. In one of them, the suicidal maniac can defend himself against attack quite well (read: weapons) so beware stalker...
ARENAS! This level has a bunch of good arena-sized arenas, all except one within hearing distance of at least a couple others. I went all-out designing creative arenas. My particular favorite is the one with see-through pillars. Don't hide behind one too long! There are also mutiple-altitude platforms, stairs and lifts, teleporters...
ENJOY!
Hint: In the room with four teleporters: (You'll know which one soon enough... you will probably learn to hate this room) No, you can't get the weapons in there. Yes, they're there for a reason.

Another case of a map that looks pretty dodgy, then the automap is like art. Seemed to be a common theme back then - Also I assume this is before the Dead Souls midi was easy to get hold of. 3 just for the cool line art.

      For 1995, not bad. Some ideas, are really cool, but they're mixed with dumb things. Texture misalignments are common. Overall I had nice time with this.

      Aside from a couple of stinkers (I'm looking at you, maps 20 and 33), this was a pretty fun and challenging map set to play through. For the time limit imposed in order to make these maps, they're of pretty nice quality, I think. While I wasn't the biggest fan of the (in my opinion) overusage of Arch-Viles and Revenants, it was still a fair challenge.

      Disregard earlier review server error caused me to download the incorrect file. So what do I like? The textures combined with the sharp lighting contrast between heavy dark and rather bright areas. What I don't like is the rather empty feeling level with large rooms and corridors filled with medium tier enemies on Ultra Violence, i.e cacodemons and hellknights, while only given a shotgun and chaingun. The issue with this is that encounters become more tedious than dangerous. I would add a super shotgun or spread out the medium tier enemy placement. The level detailing leaves a lot to be desired with the large empty grey rooms/corridors reminding me more of Half-Life than Doom. With some more detailing and better monster/weapon placement I would rank this higher but as it stands this level leaves a lot to be desired.

      the map looks good visually but what does the have to do with doom 64? and how do I kill an archvile with a pistol? and a cyberdemon with a chain gun?
