About This File

The pyramid is a metaphor that represents the daily problems of our life. Help Gamarra to climb it. Two tips for you: a bfg is in a secret area nearby the start and a secret teleport leads you on the top of the pyramid.

This can only be fun for speedrunners, proving how easily "the daily problems of our life" according to Giulio Galassi can be overcome. 1/5

This approaches NUTS.wad territory; it's a multi-tiered pyramid with over 2,500 monsters arranged in an orderly fashion on the pyramid and in some side rooms. Once the monsters wake up, the frame rate plummets. There's a secret teleport that takes you to the top of the pyramid. If Mr Galassi makes another 23 levels he will have enough for a megawad. At his current rate we will be downloading his megawad sometime towards the end of 2007.

Because of the critics, I don't care to download it. But I give 5 points for the great title "Pyramid of problems".

Is textured as badly as a 1994 level, and mostly made like an early crude DEU job. Number of monsters is almost NUTS.WAD-like, and the fact that it's a Doom 1 map doesn't help variety either. However, there is some grandiosity in the sheer scale of the pyramid...the "encouraging" texts reminded me of Christian videogames for some reason...doh, 2/5 stars.

Strangely fun... it'scool to see millions of fireballs in the 'bove or toturn on fastweapons, infinite ammo and watch as cacodemons drop from the heavens like flies. Can't wait for the last part :) It was truly spetacular and grand.

I have FTP Voyager set to download and sync the entire IDGAMES archive. First it does newstuff and the second I saw a name started with g and ending with 9, i smashed my desk. You are a fuckwad. Are you on crack and is your friend blowing you when you are making these maps? I could pull a better wad out of my ass you shit

The funny thing about these is that the author is actually getting better. Of course, at this rate, we'll have to wait until Gamarra XCVII until one of them will be *good*, but I thought it was interesting to observe it nonetheless.

Go forth and kick rear, Ghoulio, my lasagna munching friend(after all the whining about ´94 wads it was only a question of time until someone made them on purpose) 5/5

      A pretty intricate and fun to explore map sets in a semi-realistic castle with lots of secret passages, doomcute "realistic" furniture that even include a library made out of sector art stuff. The fact that this is a Retextured Doom map is shown greatly here. Pretty neat map, the only real breaker is that this map have a unused red skull key and other keys for the locked doors (blue and yellow keys)? At least i didn't find them. I had to noclip trough them for complete the map. If it could not be for this bug, it will be a great map. But overall, is pretty good. The baroque music is fabulous. Make me think of women in dress and huge wigs dancing in the marble throne room! Or demons in this case.

      An old mid-1990s map, based around a large main arena which contains some interesting structures. For a while it's tough going, and you may die a handful of times (as I did), before getting the hang of the layout and formulating a strategy. Once you get the yellow key though, and access to the BFG, it should be game over for the baddies.   Your calculations can be thrown off track however if the Archvile decides to emerge from the movie theatre at an early stage, and take a stroll out in the open. Another thing to watch for is the Cyberdemon entering the said building while you're in one of the auditoriums, and blocking your escape. I experienced both of these events, with fatal consequences...

      This is not a night sky, it's a space sky, with highly visible galaxies. It won't make sense on Earth because you can't see galaxies with the naked eye, but shall work in space and on any astronomical bodies without or with thin atmosphere.   Also there's a problem with the permission sections in the text files. The outer text file, published with the archive, says: which gives you limited permission to use the sky in your maps, but still not permissive enough to let you adapt the graphics to any modern rendering.   However, the internal (from the archive) text file says: which, while suspicious of lack of attention on writer's part, on this current state it means that you just can't use these graphics in your mods. You can try to contact the author to get a permission, so there's that chance.   So which one is it? Because without further clarification, "yes AND no = no".

      This is fairly straightforward, and most players should be able to complete it on UV in not much more than about 15 minutes. That's not to say it's a pushover - ammo is fairly tight for a good part of the map, and you could fall foul of some distant chaingunners if you're unlucky.

      It's a sky texture replacement wad, it has several files for each iwad and pwad like Eternal Doom. It's a bit dated these days, but for true old-school feel it should be enough. If you feel tired of default sky textures in your iwad playthrough, load this and enjoy different view and feel.
