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

      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
