A very neat 1996 map that i kinda remember to have played already long ago, or at least something with a similar start, a really good interconnected layout (even if i was roaming around asking where to go, especially after taking the blue key and trying to leave the caves section), good texturing, hard monster placement (the easiest monsters are the shotgunners), really generous with health placement and some strategic megaspheres here and there, too bad it is too stingy with ammo, leaving me battling chaingunners with only a chainsaw sometimes... but overall, very good!

A long, inventive and highly engaging level from the best period of Doom mapping. For modern skill a bit too many powerups. Also some puzzles might require wallhumping and there is a death trap just before the exit switch.

This is from late 1995. It dates from a time when people were prepared to put their full home address in Doom textfiles, what could go wrong? This is actually a decent level for the period, with a relatively high monster count (250+). It's large too, but very fiddly and cramped to get around, with lots of switch hunting. It gets more and more monotonous as it goes along, without much spark of life. Probably would have wowed them back in '95 though.

The second reviewer is a retard. Anyway... This is a pretty good wad from the mid nineties. My only gripe is the fact that the author did not make any of the secrets, or for that matter some of the switches and doors, a bit more obvious - you spend a lot of time pressing walls. Lots of backtracking, lots of action. It is possible to become stuck so save often. 4/5

The Anvil series was awesome, even if a little short.

Above-average retro-look&feel level with some nice surprises. Tough but not too difficult on UV. Worth a try. 4/5

Not bad. If there's anything to criticize of this level, it's a bit too much linearity in some places (which reduces the difficulty because of monster placement), but that also makes it easier to navigate for such a large map, and the overall extent surprised me. All those turns make it feel pretty massive. Worth a play-through, at least. Thanks to RL for the upload! [3/5] ~Chain Mail (03/2008)

      Surprisingly, a good megawad!   I didn't care much for maps 1, 2, 3, 25 and 30 because those need jump for progression. All the other maps are nicely crafted and balanced, being difficult on UV but always fair.

      Old school classic of mine, i remember playing this map back in the days where the only to play doom maps are buying (or having them as a gift) shovelware CDs or have some luck to find some PC magazines that sells CDs with some Doom maps included, in this case PC Gamer or The Games Machine (an italian videogame magazine) and this in the age of Duke Nukem 3D / Quake era, a pretty hard task as you probably imagine! After this little premise, this map is... pretty cool as i remembered it. Maybe too easier now than the old days, it is also one of the few map that use a darker variant of WFALLx texture, a thing that in that times was really, really unique. It reminds of a easy map from TNT. The mine tunnels are actually way too squarish and the monsters aren't that hard. But layout is pretty fluid and map is pretty fun to play...

      Love the unique twist of taking on visuals straight out of a comic, it's a breath of fresh air to blast demons in a purgatory like esque, instead of hell for the dozen time.

      One of my favorite megawads. Unique, humorous, memorably, and featuring lots cutesy sector work, such as toilets, helicopters, chairs, and the such, all of which are entertaining to see. Oh, and let's not forget it also has the best IoS fight ever (props to Gusta's girlfriend for serving as reference).   The early levels (from 1 to 7, with the exclusion of the 5th), compared to the rest of the megawad, are very low quality. Not to say they're bad, but they're not levels I'd like to replay when I think of what else KSutra has to offer, or what initially comes to mind when I think of this wad.   Gusta and Method were the level makers of this wad, Adolf "Gusta" Vojta making most levels for the wad (23 levels), and three levels in collaboration with Jakub "Method man" Razák, who alone made merely 6 levels.    Method's levels are easily the lesser the megawad has to offer, being the most lacking in overall quality, and with gameplay and progression ranging from dull to irritating, and are solely the reason this isn't a 5/5, but a 4/5 for me. As for Gusta's levels, I found his progression with level design was visible, with almost every next level outdoing the previous. They're the most unique, fun, and slaughterful.   Gusta and Method boy didn't aim for "pretty visuals, pretty enemy placements, pretty mindblowing mechanics, etc.", they simply aimed for making the levels fun, regardless of what sacrifices. Though they're easier than the usual late-AV or HR level, they're still challenging, and if you're an avid classic lover like me, you'll easily spot the specific inspirations taken from the classic megawads the authors claim to be fans of. And Duke Nukem 3D. What was taken from that is most visible.   4/5, give it a go, but don't be put off by the early, or Method's levels. This is an essential experience to every player who's taken interest in classic Doom community works.

      Visually this wad is very ugly because it uses monochrome. I don't understand this design choice. Absolutely a turn off.
