About This File

Remake of Hell Keep which is a much more realistic design than the original map. I made this from scratch using complete memory and nothing is modified from the original. The map is designed to look more like a real keep than a rather stupid sand castle, etc. Gameplay is easy to medium in difficulty on UV.

An uninspired remake.

A "remake" in the loosest sense of the word. It's the same layout and bad guy placement as the original map, but with extra visual detail. Also a missing tag on the exit door means the map is only finish able in a ZDoom based port.

I'm not a big fan of remakes, but that was interesting. 3 stars.

I'll fix the tag and re-release the level. I thought the exit door tag had no problems, obviously its Doom Builder's problem deleting tags from sectors. Hmm, the same thing happened in Simply Phobos E1M2 too. -PC

Very nice looking remake. Recaptures the atmosphere of the original, but with a much cleaner and more sophisticated look. Not very hard gameplay-wise, but the author definately achieved his goal for this map.

A nice remake, hardly gets any better. As an interesting side note, it's partially compatible with vanilla, however versions

It looks a bit cube-ish at someplaces. I also dislike the techbase textures found at places, (LITE3, DOOR1 and FLOOR0_5 comes to mind) but it does really look like a keep now, and you didn't mess up the gameplay in the process. Quite good for a remake. :] 4/5 - Da Spadger

I really like it, myself (4/5), and I hope you're gonna redo the other E3 levels as well and eventually bundle them all into an entire episode WAD. ;)

Pretty cool map I liked this one better than my version, I first thought that shotgunners don't really belong in this map but since its not an exact remake of the original I think its okay for them to be there its an pretty cool map 4/5 -DD

I downloaded this from the Greek mirror, because I am fascinated with moussaka. The level looks nicer than the original, and there's now a small moat outside the entrance and some more castle-like features. It's not quite identical to the original - there are more monsters, the demon pathway is more complicated, and the archway after the collapsing bridge is now see-through. Unlike the original, it now seems to be pacifist-finishable, although tricky.

I really like this. The novelty wears a bit thin, as there already were 2 remakes of E3M1 recently, but it still is worth a play through. The only thing i don't like is the fact that the secret Rocketlauncher at the end is pretty useless, as the level ends after this and all enemys are propably already dead... there was a RL in the original map afterall though, so it's understandable that it's still there. **** -Vader

The map looks great but it's a shame the author didn't try to differ the monster placement or even the level design from the original.

      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
