About This File

This is a sort of speedmap I made to combat mapper's block. It had no time limit, but I kept moving a fairly quick pace.

as usual, Death-Destiny draws inspiration from The Mucus Flow, with greenery and silver turret embankments. only it's not as complicated, as this is actually a speedmap. little health at the beginning makes this part really hard, along with the secret plasma gun chambers. the crates are cute at times, the ambushes actually are kinda annoying, especially with how pop-up monsters are used. definitely look out for the spiderdemon reveal, that will likely be a jumpscare when the arachnotrons show up. the red skull fight that follows is hard as hell too. worth checking out, it's much shorter than Disturbia, but doesn't follow the same mechanics.

A very tough but impressive BRPD-inspired speedmap made by Death-Destiny. You have to explore a strange mining facility surrounded by a sort of harmless acid rain. I loved the atmosphere of this level, it was indeed quiet, magic but also quite creepy.

Surprisingly relaxing and calm with the music, the text at the beginning and the rain texture. I just don't know how to explain, these things have made quite a calm atmosphere.

I played this on Ultra Violence and when I got to the Spiderdemon I was running around with 2 health and no ammo. I still managed to do it though by using a BFG trick at the red key. Final time was 56 mins. I guess I should've read the text file first :) anyway 5 from me.

Like all DD maps, very good but incredibly hard. The start with less weapons was extremely brutal and so was the dash back there at the end. Not saying it was any pushover in between though, because it wasn't.

I am not sure if I would put a 3 or 4 on this one cause it has a good scenery but it's too hard and in the same style as the rest of this author. 4/5 - Optimus

Come on not even a weapon in the first room. Just one double barrel with about a dozen shells or so would have been nice.

That was just HELLACIOUS![In a green rain sorta way.] 47 min.w/saves and 11%health.At the red key,the BFG was the key to me making it to the exit. Left a buncha pissed-off monsters behind.Spent is how I felt when I was done.Good challenge,but not quite a slaughter map.-5*

Deserves at least 4 stars. If you're a challenge hunter, then 5 is in order. My /newstuff review should sum it up well. -MegaDoomer

Immortalising theme clings to your memory as the beautiful MIDI creates both an eerie and tranquil melody. Combat focuses on tightly controlled, claustrophobic rooms with hordes and little cover. Infighting and quick reflexes are a necessity, the constant ambushes continually elevates the excitement never dwindling. HMP provides an enjoyable blast without tedium, otherwise UV is for hardcore masochists. Love this chaotic style. 5/5 - Bloodite Krypto.

Archvile at sector 1007 in HARD still cannot be killed since sector 1007 has a floor height of 0 and adjoining sector 1323 has a floor height of 194. Great map ! :)

Very atmorspheric and has a few cool tricks, as usual from D-D. HMP is recommended, and very fun IMO. -drkrvr

5/5 Death-Destiny for the win. This map is highly challenging and full of genuine traps, recommended for good Doom players.

This map is truly beautiful, reminds me of Community Chest 2 Map24 in some way. The fights were great, mostly unexpected and the enemy placement was, for once, pretty awesome. The only flaw I have is how there's TOO MANY PAIN ELEMENTALS. Also, there's a VPO under the yellow+red key, tested in GZDoom. But overall, I recommend this map to everyone who loves a challenge! 5/5 - Moti

      It took me several tries to unwrap the map but I really enjoyed it. J Flynn still amazes me. A tricky great map.

      This map is beautiful to look at and amazing to play. It reminds me of a something I'd see from a map in the late 90s and I love it.

      I'm breaking up with Valiant to start my new love with Hellbound. Best DOOM mapset that has been made. I have replayed it more than once with Brutal DOOM Platinum and Final Doomer(Hellboundguy class) and I still can't get tired of it. Cities, hellish maps, tech bases, I just love it. I also really like the combination of E2M1, E2M2 and E2M3 in Map19. Amazing stuff right there, I strongly recommend this

      I forgot to review it when I first finished it, but I played it again with final doomer so I think it's time.   Ancient aliens is beautiful, and it plays as well as it looks.  SkillSaw gives some of his best maps in his career, only matched by his heartland performance.  But the heavy lifting is really done by the presentation, stewboys midis always fit, and the fact the soundtrack is bespoke is incredible.  I personally enjoy all of the maps, only the secret maps have any issues fitting in, and secret maps are allowed to not be great.  My only issue with the wad are the inconsistent 3rd episode, and ironically it's skillsaw's work in that episode that is probably the worst (So good, but not as good as the earlier work in the wad) as the rest of the team turns in great work.

      Valiant was hyped up in my mind as a future favorite megawad, Often proclaimed as the best megawad by many.   But it is imperfect. 1. The Super chaingun is lame, not a fan, it want's to be the ultimate weapon, but it is never set up to be powerful, most enemies are too tough too be taken down by it without justifying use of a better weapon, and moments where cannonfodder are plentiful enough to justify it are too rare.  Most importantly chaingun sniping is limited, I almost wish for a regular chaingun because its ability to pick off enemies from a distance was that valuable for me.  The pistol isn't a good replacement for it, so a gap is left to pursue an overlap in the arsenal.  The custom enemies are fun all of them are great.    2. The maps are divided into episodes Ep1 - Earth tech base that is fun Ep2 - Waste episode that is ok I think for 2 or 3 maps but starts to suck later Ep3 - The Darkwave episode Ep4 - Hell that is hell to play Ep5 - Lunatic reloaded (I liked lunatic so it's fun)   The aggressive red and orange maps just unfortunately suck sometimes.  The maps aren't bad but annoying and it feels like they suck out the fun.  The other 3 episodes are fun most of the time but are imperfect.  I love custom monsters and weapons so I had that to look forward too every map, but the wad just isn't fun sometimes.   3.  Maps are detailed, but I personally enjoy vanilla maps so it doesn't appeal to me in that regard.  But In theory you wouldn't notice it because of the speed of play, the best valiant maps would be hard to recreate from memory because they would force the player to go fast.  But that also clashes with Skillsaws love of map 24 the Chasm, I wanted to idclip so many times because I fell off a thin ledge or didn't do the platforming section as well, I didn't but the restraint required was immeasurable.   4.  The aracnorb, cool in theory but combined with high ceilings made me want to hang myself, thankfully Skillsaw made the ceiling so high I can't hang myself from it because there isn't a ladder long enough.   5. I don't have a 5th point but I like the number 5 so I felt disgusting not having a 5th point.   To conclude, Valiant is fine and most of the enemies are cool but it has issues, play at your own risk.
