About This File

This is a remake of a map that I had originally created sometime in 99-02. Back then this used to be one of my favourite maps, and a while ago I found myself wanting to play it again. However I had lost the map in a HD crash a while ago, so I had to remake it based on what I remembered of the map. The detail level is mostly low since the original map was very low in detail as well and the map themes are all over the place.

There are three different "game modes": HMP is mostly similar to the original map I had made, UV is a HR version of the original and ITYTD/HNTR item placement is in HR style done by Maes before he was shown the original item placement. So this is essentially a "three-in-one" experience.

Okay I beat this without dying once. The only hard part is that the author makes it so picking the wrong room leaves you ammo depleted and you die. Luckily I never had that happen but I was close to it. Level design is shit. Overall okay, nothing special.

Eh... can't say I care for the lack of detail and the architecture/texturi ng too much, to be honest. Gameplay was OK (on UV), but I really missed an SSG and maybe a plasma gun.

Pretty intense on each difficulty level, and surprisingly different enough to make it worth playing thrice if you don't mind the plain layout and poor detail. To the above reviewer, there's an SSG on both HMP and UV close to the beginning, on the "ledge" with all the shotgunners. Take an elevator in the gray room to get there.

Meh. It's ok. Nothing too special in my book. 3/5

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
