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! :-)

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
