About This File

Welcome to the Maze of Frustration, the most challenging level for Doom2. The level is made up of 16 identical rooms, each with 4 teleporters in them and every room has an arrow. Red teleporters work while silver teleporters don't work. Certian rooms contain a square in the centre of the floor, often these rooms are the vital rooms of the map. The red square is the starting room, ect. The arrows may not mean a thing in this map and in some ways its fairly simple to complete. There are two ways to speedrun this map within 10 seconds. This map is also excellent in DM mode as well and 8 DM starts have been included in this level for one of the most fun DM experiences. GOOD LUCK!

Try to find the secret, all of a sudden the map becomes a LOT more interesting.

Finished it in 00:30 on my first try! Not a bad idea anyway.

Not as bad as it sounds! After reading the hints etc. from the comments, I managed to clock a time of 0:51 on my first go. Not bad for a 12 year-old, I guess!

This is slightly better than it sounds. I finished it on my first go in 1:11, simply by running in the same corner of the room. It's a terrible idea, though; and it would be awful in Deathmatch. In fact this general concept has been done several times before, and it never works for obvious reasons.

I finished it in eleven seconds on my first go, by just running around randomly. It's basically a series of small square rooms, almost identical, with teleporters in each corner; some of the teleports have an arrow pointing at them, and if you follow the arrows you quickly finish the level. One of the rooms has a button that drops the walls, and you get a spider mastermind and some arachnotrons, plus invincibility, although you can just run to the exit at that point.

Hey! Seriously!!! I like that! I keep teleporting and killing demons till I find a blue keycard. If I follow the arrow I go to the blue exit door. Else an alternative is to find a button and open all labyrinth walls and face the spiders and the mastermind!!! 5/5 - Optimus

      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.
