About This File

Espi originally produced this map for my ninth speedmapping session (sbspd009.zip), back in 2003.

I've since spent a number of hours revising and recreating this map, as Esa did with the map he created for my eighth session.

A really good looking short map, including interesting trickery like 3D bridges, very great layout and monster placement.

Short and sweet! Some interesting texture choices. I love the prevalence of the red brick texture that's often underused in other wads. The light decoration in the alleyway with the raised floor and use of mid textures was an interesting touch. I also thought the level exit was also unique and aesthetically appealing. As for gameplay, It's smooth and fun with good flow.

A most excellent map. 5/5 if it were a map in a series, but 4/5 on its own, because the plasma rifle is placed after all of the enemies. Couldn't use it on anything, and it feels good to use that gun.

A fun and quick action-packed city map. Uses all three dimensions well to make the most of what is, in fact, a very confined playing area. Progression is straight-forward and the gameplay is violent but very fair. No secrets. Recommended. --4/5

very possibly the best doom 2 level I've ever played. Just frickin' awesome. A whole episode of maps like this one would be too awesome. Every mapper should try to emulate this simple style and gameplay. Great atmosphere, too. Very Doom 2 city. --Hellbent

It's a good 5-stars for a short map, very enjoyable few minutes of play and too the point. But I think I've seen this map before (http://www.doomworl d.com/idgames/index. php?id=12016).

If you like Doom 2 maps this one is put together alright and gets to the point. Nothing especially interesting, though. At least it doesn't waste too much time.

Very nice 3D layout with clean classic style texturing but monster placement kind of sucks. Open door leading to a small room, see some monsters inside, easily kill them without entering that room. This happens several times. So overall it's only OK, can be fun for 4-5 minutes.

      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
