"Release date: I don't remember"... You made it on August 05, 2006. At least, you sent it to me at that date. You was making the second map. Then... Nothing! I vote 5* to compensate, because this map deserve to have 3* The design is well done, the playability is correct. Simple, efficient for a first map and, more importantly, for a 1024 map !!!

Maybe, it's already a bad sign when you're thinking you've played this map before while you're knowing for sure that you haven't. The fights are so simple that you don't even care that most of the time you're limited to your pistol. Detail is non-existant and the layout is blocky and primitive. The only interesting scene is the final battle, when suddenly you're confronted with a Baron of Hell in a narrow room and your shotgun only. Meh. 1.5/5 -Milian

Bland and boring, not really worth playing, but just manages to miss the "this sucks" category IMO. 2/5

This is a cute little map that doesn't take long to play. The design is clean and simple. For most players it will be too simple; apart from a Baron of Hell the toughest monsters are imps. The ammo is measured precisely so that you get a bunch of shells just before a fight, and as a consequence it seems a little child-like. It could be improved by giving the player the berzerk pack and nothing else, but even then it wouldn't be too tricky.

its ok: grey themed, needs a better monster variation, not for prdoom 2.5/5 off topic - ah - I think that the above reviewer made a lot of reviews in the recent past which are quite good - you should do some as a guest reviewer for doomworld - just my thoughts

Monster placement is predictable and light. The layout is clean and simple with no surprises and is fairly short. Pleasant but quick and a little too easy. 3/5 -jb

It's the worst 1024 map I've ever seen.

Simple but solid stuff. Lots of pistol work with formes. Little flaw: Too short.

      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!

      A very decent challenge. Took me about half a dozen attempts to crack it on UV. The wad is from 2015, but could just as well have been from around 1997. Solid, traditional classic Dooming.

      The visual level design here is mostly similar to Plutonia and its unofficial sequels PL2 and PRCP. But it is by no means a gameplay part, since for example the gameplay in the first maps revolves around ammo shortage with not so much opposition (although it was tight in places, I admit), while the latter maps are somewhat reminiscent of slaughterwads with a bunch of ammunition and opponents.   The same applies to the size of the maps - the first ones can be completed in 6-7 minutes, while the last ones takes 15-20 minutes to complete. Although this could be explained by a kind of progress, despite the fact that even MAP12 (the first map in wad) is not a walk in the park.   I am not opposed to forced pistol-start (maybe even for), but usually if the levels should be completed in this way, they should be better balanced, as the ability to store things from previous levels is discarded.
      And again, I repeat as previous speakers - perhaps some arch-viles were even superfluous. This is especially noticeable when you go through the same room several times.
