About This File

A huge Deathmatch play level with a few nasties added to spice things up a little bit. Vigorously tested for two man deathmatch play but should support four man play. Average two man deathmatch game lasts between 20-30 minutes when playing to ten frags.

HINTS: ------

Starting Star lift: Starting about halfway between candelabra and Star lift, walk towards Star lift.

Stopping Star lift: ??? Try experimenting by walking around the star's perimeter. Walking over certain sides of the pillars will also work.

Monster Pit: Raise the pit with the 'eye' switch. Monsters cannot cross the blue 'monster barrier' but they can slip out the back. NOTE: Let the Baron live and watch him catch your opponent(s) when they least expect it.

Automatic Door: Once the door closes it stays that way for 30 seconds.

Teleporter lift: Lift to teleporter is activated by exiting the gray hallway with the red ceiling. Be quick about it!



Feel free to send your suggestions and/or comments but you can keep the criticisms to yourself. I'd appreciate receiving a saved four player deathmatch game. This PWAD would seem to be ideal for that.

A DM only map (in spite of what Funduke's text file says. There's no exit in the map, e.g.). Mostly large, ugly rooms made in a lot of different styles. The name probably comes from a large star-shaped pillar in the "main" room. Ammo, weapons and health/powerups spread around everywhere. Some minor gameplay tricks are used, such as remote switches, powerful weapons placed in places where you're vulnerable to attack, etc. Not a very interesting map, but it's not intolerable in any way. --2/5

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".

      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.
