About This File

No more than your average techbase style map, taking place in the mountains or something (don't bother asking why there are no mountains in the sky). To begin with, this was merely a 100 minute speedmap created in August of 2006, but has obviously evolved into an undoubtedly superior map (to the original, that is). Thanks to Belial, the gameplay is heavily refined since the original (map02), and detail added by moi. If you're only an average skilled player, it might not be best to play this on Ultra Violence, though what do I know about the average skill level.

It's pretty darn good.

Hmmm... I don't know why, but something was missing in this map. It's a small map, very well detailed, with lots of monsters. It's challenging but ammo and health are enough to cope with the monster storm. Maybe it's the lack of progression that made this map feel very standard. A wave of monsters, you hit a switch, another wave of monsters come in, new room, new switch, new wave. And a big part of your problems can be solved by infighting. 3.5/5 -Milian

A nice looking, action-packed little level. There doesn't seem to be quite enough ammo to kill all the monsters without infighting, but then again, you can just rush to the exit after the cybie shows up. Map01 is a definite improvement on Map02. 4 stars.

Moti your comment about the gameplay is quite stupid one. If there is a situation that needs some startegy or getting an infights, that automatically means a points down??? No, it suits perfectly here, finally I could see some good doom gameplay and layout that works so the 4 stars on this map get a full support from me.

5/5 simply for being a lot of fun to play. I hope Tango makes a lot more maps like this.

Pretty Good, a must download. The first level contains some great fights, and good architecture. The second map is an older version of the first map and I actually like it pretty much too. 5 Stars -PC

The Tango I know can do better. The music and detail was great and promising, but at the red key (i think it was red) part, you get raped by like 10 revenants and a cyberdemon, and you only have SSG and some rockets. 3/5 -Moti

Well I thought the new map was overpopulated with enemies, which to me is not logical for a small map. I also thought the facelift, while nice, was not entirely necessary because the original map looked okay and, in general terms, improved aesthetics don't impress as much as revamped level structure, which I noticed did not change at all from the original. Still, don't let these comments daunt you. I thought this was a terrific map.

It is miracle, that you could build this map (map02) in only 100 minutes. The revamped version is nicelooking full action and quite hard map and I truely enjoy it. Better 4 stars. ;) - Damned

This map is okay, especially after the boost in difficulty. The older version was just too easy and dull. The one thing I'd criticise is the excessive linearity or lack of complexity: You open each area consecutively and most doors or devices are locked till you activate them. [3/5] (the old one would have been worth only 2/5) ~Chain Mail

Map01 shows how too much reworking of a map can render it into a generic and forgettable blastfest. Map02, while crude, has a certain rough charm to it, which was obliterated by the restructuring into Map01.

This is an entertaining, compact little map. The design is simple and clean, and there aren't any overtly port-specific bits. It's quite hard, and I didn't like the tiny ammo loadout; the level is almost like a puzzle game at times, because you have to start off a lot of monster infighting near the start especially. You had best run past the cyberdemon. Map02 is like a good fun blast from 1995, but frustratingly it goes the other way because it's too easy.

I actually prefer the older version. The newer one is so overdone it's practically a joke wad. Might work as part of a megawad but not very fun as a single map. -sargebaldy

0/5 because Belial is mentioned in .txt file!!!111 Seriously: Playtested on UV. The flow is great but sometimes I run very low on ammo (I even had to skip few last monsters and flee to exit). I like the way textures are used. Sometimes it gets difficult but not to the point that I get annoyed by unfair strength of enemies. Keep up the good job Tango. 5/5 - Zalewa

Pretty Darn Good. Not much to say. It is very refined since the original and the use of Storm Eagle's theme (Mega Man X, the first one) made me think it was more in the sky or something. 4/5

Another good map from Tango made way back before I actually visited Doomworld. A fun one to blast through, though some will find the ammo balance irritating to the max. Still, good visuals and a solid layout keep the monsters coming and shows continued early development from this dude. 7/10 -Snakes

      Good maps, most of them ended up in Skulltag later on (as in, 2004-2005 lol). A solid wad that frankly deserves more play time, even in the year 2021.

      this really deserves much more attention than it gets! it definitely has its fair share of negatives like cryptic progression, symmetry, etc, but for the time it's actually very good. the visuals are very nice with interesting architecture and good lighting, and despite not being balanced for pistol start very well the combat is great fun nonetheless.

      it's like if the casali brothers got their hands on skillsaw's kamikaze soldiers   srsly tho, for 1995 this wad is pretty vicious. the moeller brothers love to throw some real nasty shit at you on the regular, but despite that it still remains very fun (albeit somewhat frustrating at times). the levels all look decent for 1995, and the spritework for the new enemies and textures is quite good as well. aside from a few specific things (the beginning of map06 for example) there's not really any genuinely bad things about the megawad. if you're a fan of older stuff then i highly recommend this mapset - it's not as refined as later stuff the moellers worked on like memento mori, but it's still great fun.

      a very fun mapset that, unfortunately, is plagued by a few bugs. it's mostly fine if you get the fix, but if you're unaware of it then it's gonna prevent you from progressing   it's a shame, because this really is a great mapset. it starts off somewhat standard but quickly becomes quite reminiscent of av's later levels. i highly recommend it if you're into that
