About This File

A moderately-sized techbase heavily inspired by Ultimate Doom episode 2 (especially Deimos Lab). The difficulty is easy/medium, and is a 5-10 minute play. This is designed for single player, but functions well in cooperative too.

As this is my first release, the map is a bit underdetailed, and was originally completed in May 2005. I made a few changes to it before uploading, but these were mostly cosmetic (light values, textures) so as to keep the 'first map' feel.

Pretty cool first time map, good layout pretty reminiscent of original episode 2, good puzzles section, nice simple detailing. Bad points are a inescapable pit in the large nukage room you see in the first screenshot above and some really badly misaligned walls. Anyway, really cool map, crashes when you save the game on vanilla doom exe.

A fun, small level that could have used a tinge more health and ammo. Baron encounters in the nukage room with catwalks weren't too fun to deal with.

This is from 2006 but sticks to the style of the original Doom 1 maps with a rather low level of detail. The challenge is ok, but not too hard. However, the whole map is a bit of a switch hunt. 2.5/5 -Milian

Oldschool bringing back memories/resemblance s from doom1 maps. Quite nice and fun to play! 4/5 - Optimus

This is a decent but dull tribute to E2, with some themes taken from different levels in the series, although it's much darker. Unfortunately it straddles the gap that separates modern-day tributes from genuinely old levels; this feels like a competent level from 1994 rather than a retro level from 2005. The gameplay is nothing special and some of the design work is actually less advanced than the original E2.

this is underrated, it is an excellent map for notstalagia hunters, and i wouldn't throw any glaring nos for others either

This deserves more a 4 than a 3, I thought. I only have two complaints. First is that the switches in the "slime spiral" area behind the blue door are connected to a door too far away. Second is that the map ends VERY abruptly. I mean, no big boss fight, no elevator door, no exit sign, nothing - there's even a (fake) other door in the prior room - you have absolutely zero idea that it's over. But a good E2 style level overall.

Great job. I loved all of the different sections. They just added to the feel of the level. 4/5 :)

A pretty nice map overall. The E2 feeling was great, and the map was fun to play. Gets a 3.5/5 from me, but since I can't exactly do that, I'll go with 4. =) -Tango

      while it does a good job replicating episode 1 aesthetically, the levels are riddled with questionable design choices. doors that dont need to be there, a million secrets often crammed onto the back end of a level resulting in useless items unless youre not pistol starting, and just a bit too easy. for an author who claims his work is top notch and the best of the best, you shot your arrow pretty far from the bullseye my friend.

      Another one I haven't played for years and years and just revisited: Fava Beans is a solid E1 replacement and a good one if you want a chilled out, mostly really easy WAD. The level design is a cut above considering the historical context of this set, and it nails the E1 feel. Heavier monsters are introduced much earlier, but the difficulty rarely gets above casual.   E1M8 is anticlimactic and feels like a letdown after the consistency of the preceding maps, but aside from that I recommend it for an easygoing old school Doom fix. That said, it could have been harder in places. There have been better E1 replacements since, but Fava Beans is still worth a look.   Best: E1M4, E1M5, E1M7

      Not that crazy as you can think from the title, it's a interesting map with some cool design choices and some nice small puzzles as well. Fun to play and run swell.
