These levels are the result of playing with various editors over the past ten years. Yes, they are for the original DooM game. No, they're not loaded down with boss monsters. If you're looking for hordes of spider bosses and cyberdemons, you're in the wrong place.
The theme, such as it is, is a getaway gone wrong:
E2M4: What happened to the airport?
E2M5: Resort check-in--and check-out. This map has two exits: E2M6 and E2M9
E2M6: This is sightseeing?
E2M9: Last stand
E2M9 is by far the oldest level, but holds up pretty well, I think. Parts date way back to '96, but were retweaked recently. E2M5 is extremely complex, and may take a few tries to make it through all the areas. E2M6 was created as much for certain visual effects as gameplay, but it will still kill you if you're careless. E2M4 uses lighting and textures as much as anything for visual clues, so pay attention. The idea behind every map was to create sometimes difficult, but not impossible, gameplay, both in terms of traps/puzzles and pure fighting.
