About This File

Its a large map in the general shape of a pyramid. It took 3 years to make because the previous 2 drafts were way too small, and I did spend quite a lot of time on them.

Not bad at all, but I'm not a fan of nonlinear levels, so I can only give this 3/5.

This one's hard as fuuck. Pity difficulty settings weren't put in, but it's clearly an impressive large-scale map. I'd like to see a pro playing through it.

A "Boom-compatible" wad that was never tested at all in Boom. Almost inevitably, it crashes Boom 2.02 when it tries to load the map. Mandatory 0/5.

^ What he said. + I played this on UV -fast and found I had more chance of the hell spawn in-fighting - which is essential as there is not enough ammo to kill every baddie. Also it's impossible to get 100% kills as John Romano's head is spitting out more baddies. Still though, a very tough but enjoyable map. 4/5

Better than the scores it's getting. Most maps are small and the same. This is large and interesting. It's challenging, but it isn't bad at all.

Lost interest half way into the level. It just seemed unfinished and unplayable to me. 1/5.-Candle M

I really like the big huge structure this map is based, some of the ideas, but it's too hard, I made it till the middle with many saves, but then I had to also cheat. 3/5 - Optimus

The map looks kinda interesting, but it's harder than hell. 3/5

This is a large castle-style level with over 450 baddies. The design is old-fashioned, but on a grand scale. It's a bit wonky though. A couple of times I got stuck because I was too fast for a trap (e.g. with the sphere near the beginning); the gameplay throws lots of monsters at you willy-nilly, with cyberdemons and archviles etc, and you have very little ammo. It's no fun punching 300+ spectres and demons. You have to be very patient to beat the level.

      Solid. Worth a play and addition to your personal DOOM archive. Interesting custom monsters. Creative construction and some exciting encounters, especially in the late stages. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Would recommend.

      Map 01: The whole map is one big fight, and I personally really liked it. I enjoyed running around the map using the artifacts littered around in order to kill the swarms of baddies. My only real complaint would be having to kill all the enemies to progress which could be pretty annoying if one of them hides in a really obscure spot.   Map 02: Pretty classic hexen map. It was good but it was the most forgettable map in the wad due to the relatively generic theme. Also the swamp key segment was probably the worst part of the wad due to the amount of stalkers and lack of health. It also fell into the trap of over using slaughtaurs which got annoying pretty fast.   Map 03: ...The idea behind this map and the atmosphere was extremely cool. I personally loved the puzzle with the 5 switches near the start and it was probably my favorite part of the wad. But... The lack of railings made falling off a very common occurrence and the layout got confusing at times. I don't know if it was intentional but in order to get to Yorik's statue I had to jump on the pillars used as decoration. The main complaint would be the over use of wendigos at the start and a pretty anti-climactic boss fight. The sublevel was really fun to explore too.   General: It seems common for hexen wads to do this but there was no 4th weapon. The 4th weapon is the funnest weapon to use and while it could break the difficulty in some sections I think it would be worth it because the majority of the time you are stuck hitting things with your second weapon which feels repetitive.   Overall: While I was pretty negative in this review I still gave it four stars for a reason and that is because this wad is a lot of fun. You could tell every room had thought put into it and the entire wad is just gorgeous. If you can look past the small problems this wad is a amazing experience with a solid story as well. Must play for any hexen fan.

      1998. Nice Heretic map with a good flow. Resource management required. I had a lot of fun learning/playing this one.

      Very good. I prefer Map 23 on to the early stuff tbh. I only didn't give it 5 stars cause I think Speed of Doom takes a similar style and does it better.

      This is the Alpha of Doom... I mean, we are not going to fool ourselves that it is not bad, it is very bad, mainly due to the lack of many things in the HUD   so honestly I didn't like it, for an Alpha it's fairly good at that time, but even so it didn't provoke anything since I wasn't there at that time at all
