If you don't find any of the many secrets then this is a pretty hard map and you will soon run out of ammo, but with all the powerups and weapons it soon becomes fairly easy. There are a few nasty switch teleporters, one of which throws you into a cage surrounded by angry imps, so searching for the secrets becomes a hazard. The death teleport was a bit pointless, but overall this is a fun map to play. 4/5 -jb

I agree with the second reviewer, that the map feels quite cramped. It was a fun short map nonetheless. Ammo was perfect for me, although you have to find at least a few secrets (wich isn't very hard btw) to be on the safe side ammo-wise. I think 3 stars are appropiate here!

Ultra-Violence. I quit when I died in tiny lava room. SSG is too late in the game. Secrets are too obvious. I don't see any way to run out of ammo on this map. Useless rocketlauncher because corridors and rooms are so tight. I liked only the author's detail style because it's much different from what we see nowadays. 2/5 - Zalewa

This is a short, simple map that feels old-fashioned, although it's entertaining. There are lots of little secrets, most of which are marked on the automap. They contain a huge amount of health and ammo. There are 80-or-so monsters. You can clear out the "imp cage" before teleporting into it. I had no problem reaching the shotgun shells at the start of the map (I use GZDoom). At the end of the map you teleport into a room that kills you, which is odd.

Well, it's somewhat cramped, has a retarded death trap and a bunch of secrets which seem to be thrown in just to provide the player with huge amounts of health and ammo. Looks average, plays worse. 2/5 - Belial

Ammo isn't ever an issue, and all the little secrets keep you stocked up on health and such preventing the little traps from being threatening. The secrets make the map a little too cushy for my liking, and some cramped areas make moving around a little awkward (and I'm talking about when there are no monsters :P ). I must have somehow missed the death trap... 3/5 - Siggi

This is a rather short map, but it's rough and action filled. The rooms are very narrow, so your fist or the chainsaw often is the best choice of weapon. There are many nice and tricky traps and gameplay is challenging, plus there are plenty of secrets which are rather easy to find and which will provide you with lots of spheres. Gameplay is good, but the map has no real atmosphere, it's just a quick shoot and rush. 3/5 -Milian

The "death trap" is utterly retarded, and certainly is not the sort of thing that adds replay value. Make your maps more non-linear (i.e. several ways to tackle them, plenty of route options - allow the player to be a little creative), and avoid instant death traps.

Hmm, very nice. I think the main point of this map is actually the secrets, not the layout and the gameplay. But yet, this was a good map and a fun to play one. 4/5 -Moti

The shotgun shells are unreachable at the start, which means you run out of ammo while fighting chaingunners. Oh, and its cramped as hell too.

      Worthy of the fame it garnered over the last 17 years, Scythe is an excellent megawad that you should definitely play if you are up to the challenge that the last few maps offer. Map28 (Run from it) was by far the worst map as it is damn near impossible to complete it without losing a fair amount of health, but the other 29 maps more than make up for it.    Map26 was particularly fun.

      A set of fairly beginner but competent and challenging maps. Most of the architecture is symmetrical and made of tunnels and basic rooms, but thing placement is pretty well thought.   WARNING: in level 1, do NOT try to fall into the lava even if you see a secret door there! It will lead you into a corridor which has a bug! You will be blocked by an invisible wall, unable to escape!

      A pretty complex and hard Heretic level. Beware that it has a timed Wings of Wrath quest near the beginning. I can also give you a hint that if you're lost near the beginning, there's a door hidden in the dark (I opened the editor when I was stuck like this). Unfortunately the level eventually ends up being really frustrating, so it gets a 3.

      Cacophonic "Steven" soundpack, baby pillars, Giger texturing, horrible gameplay, pits of death. Short sweet Jokewad. 94'
