About This File

Inspired by NJ_CASTL.WAD, much of the integrity of the original level has been maintained, except that it is HUGE. I opened up many of the void spaces on the map to make passages and secret rooms. ... There are many ways to approach certain areas, and the action inside the castle is very much determined by the way a player behaves while on the outside. Monsters my appear in one area the first time you play and may not show at all in the same area the second or third time through. (see the original for more comments)

As big as it is boring. On the plus side, there's no shortage of worse maps.

A major expansion of Enjay’s nj_castl.wad, with new areas and monsters inserted inside empty parts of the original. It's no chicken-shoot once you get to the heart of the castle - the monsters there can cause real problems. I'd recommend fighting on the run and only settling down for a pitched shootout when you've found somewhere secure where you won't get boxed in. Progression is relatively smooth for a large map and height differences spice things up in the way you'd expect in a castle map.

This is dated October 1995. It's E1M3. It's a castle level, very typical of all the other castle levels from 1995, but much larger; there are 750+ monsters, which is astonishing for 1995. The gameplay isn't very good, though. You just go around in concentric circles, blasting swarms of imps and shotgun men. There's tonnes of ammo and health. It's an impressive feat, but tedious and mazey.

      Creative, fun, entertaining and challenging levels, very cleverly hidden secrets, some butt-kicking ambushes and traps. Ammo balance is pretty tight in some maps with pistol start, but everything is possible. A must-play WAD.

      A very neat 1996 map that i kinda remember to have played already long ago, or at least something with a similar start, a really good interconnected layout (even if i was roaming around asking where to go, especially after taking the blue key and trying to leave the caves section), good texturing, hard monster placement (the easiest monsters are the shotgunners), really generous with health placement and some strategic megaspheres here and there, too bad it is too stingy with ammo, leaving me battling chaingunners with only a chainsaw sometimes... but overall, very good!

      IT JUST WORKS! Ok, with that stupid jojoke out of the way, we can start talking about this map:   It's a nice map from 1995 with some interesting room shapes (especially the one beyond the blue skull key door), the difficult and map flow is pretty easy and straightforward to navigate, don't fell discouraged by the large amount of enemies (it contains 120 monsters in total)! They're just cannon fodder for the majority of the map, expect for the final part with a arch-vile / cyberdemon combo near the exit, overall it could be easily beaten in 10 minutes or even less if you are a talented player... Enjoyable.

      Pretty 90s-ish, basic looking map sets into a tech / hell fortress of sorts, really large map that i've finished in 30 minutes, but luckily the map uses not really hard monsters to confront, making this pretty easy to finish, but again, is a long, LONG map with the most tedious parts are the mazes and that long backtracking stairs... Pretty meh   Also this map crashes on Doom 2 exe (DosBox) when you save the game, so i played it with a limit-removing dos port (doom 2 plus) without any trouble, so if you want to play this you had to use a limit removing port.

      Nice mini episode, reminds me of some sort of amateurish Plutonia Experiment sometimes. Pretty enjoyable!
