"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

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

      The custom textures are fantastic. If you're a mapper seeking a change of pace from the usual Scythe 2 Egypt, both ISIS.wad and Osiris.wad, which provided some resources, permit use of their assets. (Although they would need cleanup to gel with the most polished of modern styles.)   By modern standards, ISIS.wad hasn't held up, either the name or the gameplay. Outside of a few moments, it stays at a difficulty that makes the early parts of Doom 2 feel like a TimeOfDeath map. The bigger issue is that it is also huge and confusing, with progression being lightly marked at best. Near the end, I unwittingly teleported to the start, and I had to reload a save to avoid minutes of backtracking. All the monsters are stock, so if forced to replay it, I'd either use -fast or throw on a gameplay mod that buffs monsters. The saving grace is that the textures make the outdoors and caves look pretty.
      The text file suggests using Doom Legacy, but few people in 2020 know what that is. Fortunately, the wad ran perfectly for me in GZDoom. It requires jumping and swimming.   Bumped up a star for the cool assets, especially since many were crafted by the author.

      "Aah, that hurts!" It hurts indeed, annoying (movie?) sound clip used for player pain, it hurts a lot. This map is not that atrociously bad, actually. Layout is nice and pretty open, and the "throne" room (without a throne) is the best part of the level, but unluckily there's this teleport crazy thing that runs troughs the various sections of the... castle? Tomb? I see more some kind of castle theme here, but i digress, let's return on topic. Ok, there is this teleport travel stuff all around the map that join together the various sections of the map, at the first time it works fine and it's a pretty cool thing, but then things starts to going crazy after you reach the yellow key door (that is, for some reason, hidden from a computer panel and the switch to reach it is hidden too in a alcove that i had to noclip for reach it) and the teleport in the middle of the rooms that randomly spawns you in some random place, and this by touching a complete random teleport line. Wonderful, you don't have the idea. Also, after taking the red key, i've been stuck for quit a long in the already mentioned "throne room" and i had to cheat for finding my way by noclipping almost half of the map. Gameplay is not hard, but... this thing is unforgiving with you. Forget to take the computer map in the cyb's cage? Forgive even to proceed in the damn map! Miss a switch, a teleport line, anything? Game over, man. Also the thing placement looks like is all around the place sometimes, but that's a (really bad) habit of old time maps... Also, is most probably me that i missed out something, but this map have a exit? I didn't find out in any way! Ah yes, the sound effects are mental, this weird ass shit turns you crazy, if not the bad choices with teleport sections didn't it already. Top class. Also, it uses somes of the zombie voices from Eternal Doom (and before that Laura Bayer)? Ok....   In short: a pretty forgettable 1994 map expect for a pair of locations with some of the ugliest sound effects you can ever heard.

      This is a clever early-career speedmap by Obsidian, in one of his favorite settings, a small archvile-infested library. It has a couple of puzzles and much of the combat is unconventional: stuff like tysoning, pacifism, and forced partial invisibility.    The gimmicks aren't bad, and a lot plays well, but I disliked the blue key section:   Two other reviews contain factual misrepresentations: the early revenant can be comfortably skipped until stronger weapons are attained a short time later, and a certain vile trio never appears if you stay pacifist during that one segment. (The map even warns you, through unmissable sector letters that spell "silence.")

      In early 2014, in the more innocent landscape BTSX hadn't fully colonized, Memfis invested his quirky energy in making enjoyable maps rather than LARPing as a forum villain. You could say he yakfaked himself before he bzzraked himself.   In Continue, barrels and rockets and plasma -- plus the overpowered SSG -- make for a satisfying five-minute lark through a utility plant. Monsters are skillfully placed for pure satisfaction. The visuals are oldschool, from the Kama Sutra era, and later progression is cool: you parkour like a goat over features that initially seem decorative, and the final area can be accessed in two different, involved ways.
