About This File

A classic-Doom-style map. It's my first attempt at creating a reasonably-detailed and completely playable map. I've played around in editors before, but never made anything worth mentioning and never released anything I made. So this is my first release.

Nice job for a first try. Was a bit on the easy side. Some areas seemed under-detailed and incomplete. Could have used a bit more work. Definately fun though.

People here give 4 stars way too easily. I don't think this one deserves even 3.

It's broken in vanilla: the first switch doesn't work unless you manage to kill the blue key shotgunner in a weird way. Use -complevel 9 in prboom+.

Very good and exactly what it says; a modest, classic-style map, just long enough for a quick blast but not too long to get boring. Marred only by a glowing blue maze (mazes are perhaps *too* classic) that started to give me a migraine.

I liked it, but some dark areas pissed me off. It is nothing more than average I'm afraid. 3/5 -Lutrov71

Excellent map, well balanced, good detail and gameplay. Linear is the way I like 'em and there's only one area that's dark on purpose. I'm not a detail freak so the looks were just fine for me. 4/5 - Belial

Very good for a first attempt. Some parts were a little annoying (like the dark hall toward the end), and there was something I didn't like about the overall feel, but I can't put my finger on it. Still, nice job. 4/5

Great map. Impressive for a first time. Balanced gameplay and ammo. Gets a 4.5/5 becuase there were a few things that I am just nitpicky about. I'm giving a 5/5 to get it to 4.5 :) - kirby

****, but just barely. It earns that only from creative use of creatures and decent gameplay. The map design is far too linear and uninventive for my taste and reminds me a lot of all those crappy maps I can't stand in newer games. -sargebaldy

I think it's great. There are things that could make it better though. First and foremost, the fights could be made more exciting. This would improve the flow of the game. Secondly, well this is arguable I suppose and isn't all that important, but I think the detail is a bit overdone. Thirdly, try to avoid making your levels feel linear. Pretty much all Doom levels are linear but small things make them feel like the gameplay has depth to it. 3 stars - Starburst.

Too linear, but not bad for a first attempt. Some unnecessary copy/paste, and the ammo balance suddenly goes way off in the last battle. 3/5

      My new favourite set of 32 maps. Definitely the best MegaWAD that Skillsaw has ever made, destroying Valiant. Lots of unexpectedly cool ideas can be found within these solid maps. From the very first level with the neon "Wolf Warp" you know that you're in for a real treat. "Leave your Sol Behind" also blew me away with the whole space ship travel gimmick.   In terms of difficulty: I was playing with Project Brutality on its equivalent of Hurt Me Plenty, so that amped up the difficulty considerably. A couple areas really constrict you for ammo, and according to Skillsaw that was supposed to be a main feature of the WAD but was dropped for a majority of the maps. Occasionally you encounter some slaughter-like areas and maps but nothing that got bland or seemed like a crutch for bad level design. You will face a considerable number of Cyberdemons and Spider Masterminds, which is par-for-the-course when it comes to custom Doom maps.   In my opinon, some guest maps sucked (Nectar Flow) while others fit very well (Culture Shock, Acerols-Orion). Maybe some could say that the second episode did start to blend slightly together from level to level due to the visuals, but I would also say that the second episode had the best content for the MegaWad.   So all in all I'd definitely recommend this Wad to anyone who plays Doom and is looking for a beacon in Doom map design.

      I made the mistake of putting this on UV for my first playthrough. Oops. It was insanely brutal and I didn't have a lot of fun with it. However, after checking out the readme, as suggested I went back for another run on HMP. It's impressive to see the huge difference in difficulty and I appreciate the effort in differentiating the various skill level choices. I definitely recommend new players play it on HMP or lower, that way you can really appreciate the excellent architecture and interesting color scheme, as well as that soothing DKC music that makes for a unique vibe. 4/5 for a HMP playthrough. The only thing lacking here is the amount of maps, and that's OK. I'd just love to see more in this style.   Rating when played on UV: 2/5. For extreme masochists only.

      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.
