About This File

Random map based on the Heretic Treasure Chest megawad (E1M5) http://www.doomworld.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=37792 The map is based on a small desolate town hidden deeply within the mountains. Like Plutonia II, I saw no progression into the project so instead of letting the map go to waste, I decided to release it as a standalone map. I was told that there may be issues on source ports other than Zdoom (no surprise there) when trying to open the blue key door. I only tested this on Zdoom (unfortuently) so I really can't guarantee that this wad will be stable. Cooperative play is highly recommended.

Pity that I haven't played Heretic in centuries. Auto 5/5 is a given because I hate eating chickens.

I'm not sure that the word "legendary" is adequate enough to describe this masterpiece. Why it only has 18 votes is beyond me. An epic adventure in the Heretic universe. And ignore the first reviewer; he just doesn't like Heretic in general 5/5 -Stormwalker

One of the most complex and huge maps I've ever played for Heretic. Gradually opens up to reveal more and more. Good stuff!

Nice map, but I wish the Heretic Treasure Chest would have been completed :(. 5/5 Lupinx-kassman.

Remember, Doom fans, it's ENGAGE15. This is a large, garish-looking map; it's fun for a while but very wandery, and the action doesn't hook me. It would have been awesome as a Doom level. Perhaps I just don't like Heretic - every map (including this one) seems to have hundreds of lost souls, the weapons and monsters look ridiculous, and there's a continual "whoor whoor" noise in the background. I have to give it three stars just to be fair.

A very solid and good map. The architecture fits the Heretic universe like a glove and the map is great fun. Love heretic, love this map. 4/5 - Kristus

Reminds me a lot of the original Heretic levels. Lots of random ammo and powerups. Enemy placement seems random and haphazard, and I had more than half the enemies dead before I was even close to finishing the level. Still worth a play if you like Heretic.

This gets 5 stars from me, because while it starts off being so overpowered to begin with, and the only tactic is to run, shoot and dodge - it is 100% only Heretic. I wish all the maps that eventually went into the Treasure Chest stayed as faithful to the original design and atmosphere of Heretic. Not the most beautiful wad in the world, but still ticks all the boxes. Legendary!

Brilliant Map. A shame the Heretic Treasure Chest is seeing little to no development. Heretic desperately needs a good megawad. 5/5

Come back to the dark side Kaiser and build some more DOOM(3) levels. I don't like medieval, I want my shotgun! :-)

      MAP01-03 are not too exciting; room-corridor-room layout, not too pretty, not too ugly (OK texturing but too many dark areas), boring combat.   MAP04 got me and I actually said "wow". For some reason it is called "The Shotgun Factory"; it is long, much of it is even more room-corridor-room, and very sparsely populated; John Bye reincarnate? I was about to fall asleep, but the last few rooms are very unique and unorthodox.   MAP05 and 09 are weak; MAP07 joins MAP01-03 for being not memorable. MAP06 has cool music and it's maybe the best, with good grey/silver base looks and more "teeth" (monster density). MAP08 looks very nice and it's crazy about making the player revisit the same areas so many times (but it's short and easy). MAP10 is fine and MAP11 looks like a joke because of its simplicity.   After playing I realized there's one Tomi Rajala map here. All in all, don't expect stellar quality, but 04 (the ending),06,08,10 are worth checking. Tech base is the main theme.

      Excellent. Especially in the later maps. I actually enjoyed run from it which is odd considering other’s views on it.

      From the author of maps 20&27 of Memento Mori. Fort Hades(27) was excellent, Mount Depot (20) was okayish and I found this one even weaker thanks to a marble-walled maze, a hidden mandatory blue key and a nonsensical BFG placement. However, I would recommend giving it a try not only to die-hard old school WADs enthusiasts; it is the most brutal map of the three, and this difficulty is what is the coolest and most redeeming here.
