Consists of two new levels, and also has some textures & sprites & sounds which were imported from various other games. In order to see the new monsters launch JHERETIC without the model resources. The Gargoyle has been replaced by the Reiver from Hexen. The Golem has been replaced by Knuckles the echidna from Sonic games on GBA. The Undead Warrior has been replaced by the Cleric from Hexen. The Weredragon has been replaced by the Chaos Serpent from Hexen. The Sabreclaw has been replaced by the killer swine from Hexen. The Ophidian has been replaced by the Mage from Hexen. The Disciple has been replaced by the Bishop from Hexen. And the Ethereal Crossbow weapon has been replaced by the Arc Of Death spell. If you're the type of gamer who enjoys a mix of exploration and action then you should love this add-on. If you're the type of gamer who enjoys only action without exploration then you might not like it too much.
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
