About This File

This is the first map of a serious series. I want to make some tributes to all styles of mapping. I made this level according to 1994 canons such as low detail and only a weapon available (shotgun). In a secret cave I wrote the name of the best (in my humble opinion) wads made in 1994 that changed my lifestyle. The numbers in brackets are the "id" at /idgames.

Pretty minimal, true to its name. Play at 320*200 or with Chocolate doom at low detail for maximum 1994-ness.

To the above reviewer: except that it is broken due to Zdoomisms. A new port category is needed: "Zdoomism-compatibl e".

Well, it tries to imitate those 1994 wads, and IMHO it succeeds. The secret cave with the best maps of that year is a nice detail... Better than the Gamarra series. --- 2/5

Better than "gamarras" piece of crap, but still a horrible piece of crap. Giulio, spero che ti metta a fare delle mappe migliori col passare del tempo, sennò vengo lì e poi... "schiaffi ke sono un ppppiacere aiòòòòòò pòrcatròia!!!!" - Daimon

Good map in a perfect 1994 spirit. Ammo isn't enough but i don't care.

Just because you say it's supposed to look like a "1994 map" doesn't give you the right to put in zero effort in making a map. Fail.

This is a Gamarra like map. 1 star because this map dosen't have enough ammo or health. The Gameplay is shocking, if ammo or health placement was fixed I would have given it a 3. -PC

What you'd expect. Huge bare open spaces, 255 lighting, Knee Deep in the Fucking Ugly texture scheme, very easy. But the gameplay is unique in that it is Dull with a capital D. I was sick of this map after pistoling and then punching around 15 imps, zombies, and demons with no shotgun. And the end battle against 40 or so imps, demons, and cacos is an attempt at HR gameplay that is so tedious and so easy that the real danger is narcolepsy. And requiring ZDoom for this is fucking lame. 1/5 --Woolie

You pretty much summed up why this map sucks. "Low detail and only a weapon available" It's almost as bad as your Gamarra maps.

Wads from 1994 don't have errors like these. It's a good idea to learn the basics before you start releasing maps.

Not horrible but not that too good either. Definately an improvement over Gamarra.

Cool! Ammo was tight but I went through it nicely. Found the 1994 secret with more recommendations for what to play today :) 4/5 - Optimus

Eh, what were you expecting. In an effort to make a 1994 style map, you map in a less than perfect fashion. Plus, the first doom mod ever was the same way...one gun, not enough ammo. I'm for ya, glassyman. 3starz

      This is a damn trainwreck.

      Great visuals, creative layouts with unorthodox and challenging gameplay, while still holding those 90s vibes. Although sometimes it can get stressful due to the high influx of monsters in massive areas while giving you no time to rest (edit: though, some will probably enjoy the execution bit more than me -- which is why I changed it from 4 to 5 stars), it's essential for every vanilla lover, and a good trip as well.

      One of the best wads I've ever played, has a great and memorable soundtrack while also having a nice and difficult (but satisfying) level design. To me a nice step up from the original and a way more balanced map pack overall.

      Highly recommended to people who want a nice and difficult wad to play.

      I generally like city maps on DOOM but this set of maps are one of worst I've ever played. Extremely confusing maps, obtuse progression and on top of that there's no enough ammo on UV to kill the monsters. Gave up on MAP 06. It's utter garbage really, you should avoid it.

      Creative, fun, entertaining and challenging levels, very cleverly hidden secrets, some butt-kicking ambushes and traps. Ammo balance is pretty tight in some maps with pistol start, but everything is possible. A must-play WAD.
