About This File

An rather large hellish themed map, with new textures, sounds, monsters. Pretty hard from start to finish, only hellish creatures are used here no zombies. An decent ammount of secrets to be found, great detail but not overdone. Have fun :)

Another classic map from a great mapper. This is certainly challenging at times especially with those damn custom lost souls, but it was still so fun to play I kept coming back. 5* from me. -TRRobin.

Author shows a lot of technical skills. Ambiance is good, despite the quite rectangular map layout and a few hilarious design errors. Sadly the gameplay @ UV is not good. It's not too difficult, but way, way to repetitive, predictable and monotonous. After a while it gets more and more difficult to keep on being interested. Overall: 4.5 for the technical skills, 4 for ambiance, 2.5 for the layout, 1.5 * for the gameplay, so 3*. It's a pity...

Despite what a prior comment says, there are difficulty settings. HMP should be doable by most seasoned Doomers with a few saves. It didn't wreck my day, and I'm not that good on my laptop.

very extreme visual quality and PSX atmosphere. I like, but the extra monsters are quite annoying particularly the lost souls.

The architecture and layout is superb (maybe the layout is simple), the graphical aspects are good and so are the sounds... Sadly, the gameplay completely fails, as you may find yourself with no ammo, health and armor with each horde of monsters. If this aspect was worked in depth, would be awesome. 3 stars.

I just solved this in a sitting. I love the way it unfolds. once you get the hang of it it's quite easy though. huge amounts of ammo. maybe overcompensated in the 'update'?

A huge improvement over Dutch Devil's first map. Whilst still symmetrical at times, the layout as a whole is much more interesting, and the ammo/health balance is a bit more balanced. It all looks good, with lots of decorate monsters, which I actually think are more detrimental to the wad than good. Especially those stupid over-powered stealth barons. Still, a really nice map 5/5

This was a much better effort than total control. Layout was highly improved upon. This should have been picked for the cacoward instead of total control. Thank you Dutch Devil! 5/5 -Superdavey

Looks great but is too difficult. Finished the game after 10 minutes of major annoyance. Lower skill levels are meant to be easier, you know?

Looks great, but plays very poorly. The light levels are ridiculously low in almost all areas, fights are repetitive, traps are way too obvious, some of the new enemies are awfully lame, thought some are good. 2/5

I'm surprised anyone had any real trouble with this. I really liked the ammo management before you get the backpack, at which point it seems like you have too much. I finished the level with plenty ammunition to spare, but that might be anecdotal. Loved the architechture, Doom 64 Sounds are always cool, and I liked the pacing. 4/5!

Holy Shit. Nice level ! Very detailed. Insane gameplay, hard new monsters very fast and annoying. Not an easy map. For the next one set at least two difficult settings. 4.5/5

The map is as fair and beautious as a lilly, however it's nearly impossible on UV, and the level progression a bit frustrating, so the gameplay experience was meh. Bearing in mind that it would be easier on lesser skill I'd give it a 4. I would advise dutchdevil to tone down the gameplay in his maps, because architecture-wise he's brilliant, the only other mapper zdoom which I can think of to be better is tormentor667.

Looks great, plays like ass. Tons of decorate monsters + little health/ammo + cramped areas + no skill levels = very annoying. You'd have to memorize the whole damn thing to get through it in one life, and even then you'd have to be lucky. 3/5.

Danm I would have to say it would take some time to make a level like this. This level looks good and I think its pretty hard too. The only problem is the god damn lost soul pieces of shit, however very nice worth the download if you computer is halfway fast 2/28/07

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
