About This File

This is a compilation of the WADs entered in SargeBaldy's twentieth speedmapping exercise. Participants were given 100 minutes to construct a map based on the following story:

"Your name is L. Shawn Tubbard, and your occupation is the exploration of sewers. But ahead of you lies a formidable task; the Great Sewer of Caerleon, one of the last holdouts of that huge demon plague a few years back. Although you meant to take along your shotgun and rocket launcher, you accidentally left them at home. According to an ancient scroll you purchased in a gift shop, the sewer is also home to a chocolate mine. The only way out is through..."

I've never played through a speedmapping set before, so I wasn't sure just what is possible in 100 minutes, but as I went through the first three levels, it seemed that the answer was "not much". But, maps 4 and 5 save the wad and are worth seeing, especially 4. For some reason these aren't mentioned in the text file.

Three maps from February 2008. The previous reviewer mentions maps 4 and 5, but the German mirror at least only has Map01-03. Map01 is basically well-designed, but it's very short and easy, with only 17 monsters. Map02 has a fun, hectic start - but then there's nothing else, the "final battle" is empty. Map03 is like Map01 but tougher, it's a Tyson-fest against some moderately tough baddies. Feels like a tiny snippet of a good conventional map.

Hi, I'm reviewer #1 - Apparently the New York mirror points to Compilation #02 instead of #20, which is why I reviewed the totally wrong wad. Be warned.

I liked them all. Map two was probably the best. But there was no chocolate :.)

      Good maps, most of them ended up in Skulltag later on (as in, 2004-2005 lol). A solid wad that frankly deserves more play time, even in the year 2021.

      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
