Welcome to the Lost Bridge, which is the only thing in this map. Its a brutal challenge map that lasts less than 2 minutes, but took me more than 10 minutes to complete. The level faces you off against some big enemies with big weapons and ammunition to charge through them. Not enough ammunition for all enemies, but enough to survive with skill and tactics.

 

Getting across the bridge is easy enough, you can clear a path and run across dodging imps, but its opening the door at the end that becomes the true challenge. Imagine three worst case scenarios and see if one of them is correct, I'd hate to spoil the surprise. Have more imagination than "its a cyberdemon" or "spider mastermind grand finale!"

The map area is small and confined, but not cramped, there's enough room to dodge fiery projectiles. Jumping into the toxic ooze below lets you swim around, but will ultimately get you killed. More detail would have been great, but what's here sufficed.

 

As a standalone map, like others have mentioned, its short, too short. The author specifies it took an hour or two to make and yeah, I'd believe it. I like the idea of brutal, short maps, but in a map pack with more than a single map. This just becomes a throwaway level. How can I call it a level when its just a short bridge with a door at the end?

Crampy, small gzdoom map. It throws you some tough monsters and too little ammo. Kill all baddies, move into base through bridge and map ends near second door, like it never properly started.

Fun but much too short - it's like a tiny part of a proper level. In Zdoom it's a fairly simple matter to strafe-jump across the pillars, although that's probably not what the author intended. At first I thought that the missing bridge was a joke (it's the "lost bridge") but of course you're supposed to use one of the other source ports.

A GZDoom level. It is too short, that is why it is not interesting. 1.5 / 5

Too short, almost incomplete I´d say. Gameplay was a bit cramped in the only area but with some fine tuning and a lenghtier gameplay this could have been a nice wad as the design isn´t bad at all. For the sake of shortness I´ll give it 1.5 stars (1 star). Danimetal.

I didn't figured out how to get to the other side. Maybe make the monsters open the door so that the archvilles throw you to the other way? But still preety much hard already and not enough ammo. 1/5 - Optimus

What engine you're using if you can't get on the other side???????????????? ????? Read the text file. Read the second line very well. Here is the line:"Advanced engine needed : Legacy or GZDoom". ps. There's more ammo on the other side of the bridge.

      Not quite as bad as some other comments said, for an old wad anyway. Playable but easy at UV. Some poor texture alignments, nearly all brightly lit, no atmosphere. New sounds are mostly cranky but I liked the machine gun. The voice sounds the same as in "Wild West Of The North" - WEST.WAD which was by Mike Lasota and which also has cranky (but different again) sounds.

      Boring tosh. Long narrow passages packed with hundreds of demons to grind through with a chainsaw. Might as well work in a bacon factory.  Gave up after checking the map to see if there was anything more than carving demons. There wasn't.

      It has done what the creations intentions were; to create a substantially different feel and perspective on doom.   I'm not the sort of person to say "keep it up" nor "encore" but your wad does jump out from the thousands of typical hell and techbase levels. I personally like to keep my typical "masculine wads" masculine, but it does look alot different from the usual doom mods. Sort of like that "youtube-friendly" doom wad yet unironic and serious.   The content itself is very lacking as if you were supposed to enjoy the wad like it was a gulp of water. All you can do is pet the dog thing and water the plants. You could go up the steps but they just lead back down.    The style of the wad is vastly contrasted with our usual wads, resorting towards handdrawn and crayola drawings and if needed, ameteaur ms paint drawings added onto that. The author/illustrator has cleary shown that she/he/xe/they/A.H. doesn't demonstrate professional skill on the likes of eviternity, so they taken the route of making everything childlike to mask their lack of drawing to promote a child game.    I usually expect something like this from either a father making a small wad game for his little daughter or that apple advertisement wamyn that casually says "Whats a computer?".    I cant find any aspect to improve upon this due to it's jarring identity in contrast to the typical fps "masculine" wads out there.

      Possibly my favorite Ultimate Doom megawad. Although its first half feels like DTWID, it quickly becomes a much more twisted and demented take on the familiar techbase/hell aesthetic. Expect well hidden secrets, tight corridors, and some tough encounters in large, complex levels. In keeping with Ult Doom's tone, NaturalTvventy layers the atomphere on thick to create levels that feel genuinely hostile and evil, even more so than in the original.    If you have a soft spot in your heart for the original Ultimate Doom, this megawad is a must play. NEIS makes you realize how rock solid the original Doom formula is, even without the SSG and revenants.

      An odd wad in which you play a Hexen class while fighting Heretic monsters in Heretic-textured levels. Surprisingly, it works pretty well, and is an interesting change of pace from either game. It retains Hexen's hub design, although it's not at all puzzley, just a "go and collect 3 items and return to the hub" quest. It's very combat-focused (there's almost 400 enemies in the final level), but unlike some Heretic maps, it doesn't end up feeling like a slog. Perhaps Hexen's weapons are just more powerful than Corvus's. The level design is very good, besides a couple of sore spots (the cramped areas of the lava level, the metal maze in the final level). The boss, D'Sparil, is much easier to kill than he was in Heretic; he probably should've been modded to have a better chance against Hexen's warriors.
