About This File

Saturn- 2110 AD

The UAC mining colony on the dark side of Saturn has sent a distress signal to UAC Headquarters. The mining operation has come to a complete standstill and the top brass wants some answers. Your commanding officer briefs you on the details of your mission.

You must enter the mine via an old service tunnel leading from the mouth of a crater and penetrate the main shaft of the system. You are to recon the tunnels and find out what has happened to the colonists and the marines stationed for duty there. The equipment storage area holds the key to enter the Upper Complex of the mine. Once inside, you are on your own. You must find the controlling switch that activates the main reactor...somewhere near a main control room. Upon completion, you are to head to the surface via cover of the service lift near the reactor and wait for transport off the planet topside.

He warns you that the mine is very unstable and that the deadly rays of the Sun have penetrated the works in some sections. You should steer clear of these spots or face certain death. A contingent of recon soldiers were sent 2 days ago and no one has heard from them since. Your platoon wish you luck as you make your descent to Saturn's charred surface, not knowing of the horrors that await you in Hell's mine.......

NOTE- This is a small but very intense mission.....The ending can be very easy if you can figure it out!

How could there be mines on Saturn?, there's no solid surface.

^ Maybe there floating mines like the ones used during WWII smart-arse! :) Anyway... The map is not good. You have to fight chain-gunners and imps in health nibbling lava in the pitch black darkness (maybe this is due to my set-up, I dunno) but I found it annoying and tedious.

Hmmm...this looks like 1996...feels like 1996...oh wait, it IS from 1996. I knew that DoomCAD rang a bell...anyway, so-so 1996ish level. 2/5 -Maes

Seriously, how can anyone give a map like this a rating of 0? That should be more a bad "my first map" that crashes the engine or has no exit, etc. Some of the attitudes of people in the "kommunitah" just suck. Many thanks to RL for making these great old maps available.

I didn't really like the layout and it felt too cramped in. It seemed like everything was thrown into you all at once. Gave up after a few minutes of playing, didn't fit my tastes well. 0/5.-Candle M

      cannonball is yet another mapper who will probably take some getting used to when it comes to his maps. I remember hating on Return to Hadron when I first played it, but after subsequent plays it got easier. the same can be said for a lot of his other wads.   while this is my first time playing through Sparta 2, I easily got into cannonball's playstyle. his architecture style is always the same, as are his usage of monsters, basically you'll be running around often in the heat of monsters; the space is wide enough to accomodate this kind of playstyle and you just gotta be quite wary of where projectiles are flying. even if the monster count is low the layouts make things rough. but overall, what I like most about cannonball's maps is how well they can be run through. sure, you're gonna be dealing with a fuckload of carnage in these maps, but they all are very speedrun-friendly which is a plus. notable maps include:   MAP08, which is probably the roughest start in the wad MAP12, which has a false sense of security with its monster count. the two slaughter finales which are both well done.

      I don't pretend to understand any of the promotional material accompanying this map, relating to wizards and the like, and it just seems like a typically unsubtle early offering, albeit on a grand scale. One of the reviews says you can't get out of the Cyberdemon arena once you've teleported into it near the start, but the bad news is that you can. The final room with the Spider Mastermind is quite lively and entertaining, if you persevere that far.   The version of this I played was a Doom 2 conversion, which ran in the MAP10 slot, with some Revenants, chaingunners and Pain Elementals, but if you download the one on this page you'll probably get the original wad.

      I really like this palette edit. I am not sure about the "better visibility on CRT screens" part, since I find it a bit dark at times, but I do love the toned down colors. I don't play everything with this palette, but I noticed that some WADs definitely benefit from it.   Regarding the people who don't like it; Well, just check out the screenshots. If this looks cool to you, use it when you play Doom. If it looks crap to you, don't download this.
