About This File

One level for any limit removing port.

The idea for this PWAD came from iddqd.ru. The main concept is: you should create a level using only two IWAD textures and two IWAD flats. Thanks Shadowman for inspiration.

PrBoom-Plus 2.5.0.1+ or (G)Zdoom are recommended.

WARNING #1: You should not use glboom at all and glboom-plus before 2.5.0.1 with this PWAD to avoid HOMs.

WARNING #2: You should disable "Try to emulate intercepts overflow" setting in PrBoom-Plus (overrun_intercept_emulate 0 in cfg), because there is a place where this overflow will happen permanently with all the ensuing consequences (semi-noclip)

MIDI: Equinox. Sounds: Power Slave, Half-Life, Doom3.

Dehacked patch, in-wad demos and PWAD composing: Andrey "entryway" Budko.

This has got to be one of the best maps I've ever seen. Moody as hell. I'll admit that rocket launcher room had me for a bit. Darn fucking doom lighting levels don't work well with subtlety.

At first... I thought this was a really solid, decent wad. After playing the entire map, I read the map was subtitled (2x2). It wasn't until AFTER I played the map that I realized the map uses just 2 flats and 2 textures. I believe that is the mark of an excellent mapper. Good use of lighting and architecture to disguise the limitations.

A truly memorable map, with visuals and atmosphere that far exceed what's considered typical of doom. Now, if only PHARAO from TNT was like that... -Maes

Traps you in the rocket launcher room with no way out. Sorry, 0/5, even though it was very nice and atmospheric up to that point - but bugs like that are unacceptable.

Nice atmosphere. Map makes you think, and does so well. Impressive that only 2 texes and 2 flats were used! New mappers take notes! :P

Awesome design but a bit too much running around and searching. 4/5 - Optimus

Excellent ! On saying that though, there could have been a bit more health/ammo.

Very clever and slightly creepy survival map. Makes amazingly good use of limited resources, features and health to create a fairly harrowing experience. The only thing that there's a lot of is ammo. 5* -Phobus (slight issue with direction at times, but not enough to detract from the score I think)

A dark, harrowing claustrophobic map with an emphasis on both physical and environmental traps to constantly keep the player wary. The puzzles themselves are not too arduous as the layout is mainly linear, a careful eye and degree of perception is all that is required. Considering the unique concept and chilling atmosphere which certainly got my heart racing, combined with the intriguing gameplay I'd have to award this no less than 5, would love to see more in a similar style by Eternal. 5/5 - B.Krypto.

An excellent level. There was just enough ammo to complete it, and the stage as a whole was very atmospheric and creepy. Very well-done. The only issue that I had while playing it was that I couldn't figure out what triggered the third of the metal doors in the labyrinth (where the Revenants were behind the first two), but aside from that it was very fun. 5/5

I can tell this is using music from Daggerfall, but otherwise this is a beuty of a map with a kind of subtle arabian style, I also like the sprites used for the torches.

Amazing work. I wouldn't have believed that it is still possible to make a DOOM map this creepy.

Scared the living hell out of me. Amazingly clever design and extreme attention to detail. So atmospheric it'll give you nightmares. Not easy, though do-able. Some switches are not so obvious, which can lead to a bit of wasted time. 4.9/5 -jj

Strange concept to use so really few textures but it was quite atmospheric and a good fight. Still beatable on UV but finding the secrets make life better. Some of the riddles needed some time to be solved (blocked path) but it was still ok. 4/5 Caco

Clever game play, totally different. I had to think outside the box for this one. The graphics were good. Even though you had a strict limit, the map came out beautifully. But it was still kind of eerie and haunting since it was a crypt. The music was pretty good, not perfect, but good. Good work! 4/5

Looks mega awesome. Ammo and health were too tight for me to enjoy it. I can't stand maps like that. I ended up god moding through the last half of the map because of that, and all the traps, and because I suck. I rated 5, though. I think Eternal should've got mapper of the year for 2008.

There are couple of places on the map where you can get stuck for some additional time for finding a way, if you were not attentive enough, but a common atmosphere including the good selected sound effects deserves a praise - 4.5

No one's done this before. Brought back the first fears like in doom when you started-- and saw a cyber.

^ Thanks for the information! I've heard this music several times before but I didn't know its source. =) Of course, the map itself is amazing. 5 stars. - Katamori

      I liked it better than Claptrapino. Maybe because I'm a novice level maker too. Obviously it's the work of a newbie, but I absolutely understand how it might have taken 10+ hours. I think I've spent at least that long and haven't even completed any levels yet.   I actually thought it was an interesting basic concept to start in the middle of a maze, with areas you've previously cleared not guaranteed to be safe anymore with the portals and spawns. I died twice in my attempts and finished the third time. When I realized that staying in place, conserving resources and clearing wasn't working I took the invulnerability and just ran through the halls spraying high damage weapons.   The level did seem unfinished though. What are the keys for? Are there secrets in the level that contain locked doors?

      Yes, this is a legendary megawad. Yes, there is a lot of positives to say about it.
      But I can't ignore the button madness present in many levels. In the second half of the games this gets utterly insane - you WILL spend most of the time bashing and shooting every inch of every wall to find yet another hidden switch to be able to progress. Many switches open hidden doors in an unrelated location on the other side of the level without even telling you. Some levels have switches completely invisible and one of them even hides switches in random decoration sprites like trees. I'm sorry but this was no fun and in the end it ruined the entire megawad for me.

      Now this wad is sorta conflicting, for one if you suffer from any of the following problems: lack of ammo,regenerating health,the maps,multiple deaths. You can't play doom for shit but the i also have issues with this wad.   1. The doom 3 type design disgusts me, mainly because i don't like doom 3 that much   2. I hate the painkiller esque moments   3. It's unfinished and dead   That's all.   RATING:3/10

      Pretty awful: uninspired, square layouts; boring, repetitive hordes; bad map design which leads to accidental telefragging by monsters; questionable sound design. Half of the time in a map is spent trying to figure out where to go in the map because the automap does not work and there is little sensible layout of the maps (plus some access points are hidden and difficult to discern). Earns 1 star just because of decent graphics, but that's about all that's decent in this wad.

      I actually like this, the custom pistol replacement is pretty good the new enemies add a nice campy feel to it which i very much enjoy, the map design gives a nice feeling to my eyes and in general was good.   RATING:4/10
