New map for DOOM II

A small to mid sized level intended as both a gut wrenching Single Player or Coop. experience and a great deathmatch battleground. The name comes from the small hill in the center or the outdoor area. I have given great effort into creating a very good looking level with all the textures aligned properly. The pros might find a few areas that I missed though.

In single and coop. you will find yourself battling demons in a variety of arenas best suited to their fighting abilities. From a pistol dual in dark tunnels, to a wild romp with a revenant, and just possibly a small taste of hell.

For Deathmatch the level is designed to open up fairly well and allow a variety of entrances and exits to the main battle areas. All of the weapons are available, although some may be harder to get than others. I have not been able to test deathmatch with more than 2 players, so let me know how it is.

Nice classic style map with clever level progression. Very cool lava cave. Fun to play, goes well with mmmus.wad idmus07.

Too simple of a layout and your too generous with your weapons/ammo and health for those type of monsters. It's not bad but definitely not good.

A very good map indeed - blast from the past ! Simplicity and sheer gameplay, what Doom was meant to be...

Typical '95 map: according to today's standards it has simple layout, spare texture use, almost no decoration, and overall quite poor gameplay. Rated as such: 1/5. However, rated as '95 map: 2/5, because for that time it's not awful but clearly below average. BTW Having said this, I seriously wonder wtf 2 anons rate this one as legendary...

      Its pretty ok. Decently impressive but in the first level there is a hall of mirrors effect for the sky. It sort of feels like plutonia at times with  some of the monsters.

      The map is awesome, great layout, architecture and texture choice. One of the best looking maps ever created. Some people rate it down because of its high difficultly due to the massive amount of monsters in some places. Even if I'm not that skilled I had my fun with this map.

      Never expected to see a doom mod from this room... A weird choice, for sure... Anyway, this is just your usual 90s wad, just not a real good one

      The Artifact is a classic 1995 three-level mapset. It might be one of the highest-quality 1994/1995 productions I've seen, standing alongside such releases as UAC_DEAD or Galaxia. Much like them, Artifact has something of an unique air about it... a feeling of a true adventure, where you can palpably feel the author's enthusiasm and creativity as you go, each new room and area somehow feeling unique and lovingly crafted despite the simplistic looks. One downside of the mapset is that progression is occasionally confusing (such as one door switch on map03, hidden on a column that lowers into the ground).

      A set of maps, carefully tuned for pistol starts, pretty hard/challenging. The maps are rather small and have exactly one secret. There is no stylistic consistency; there are a few bases and castles, caves, hellish maps and so on, everything totally mixed up. I can assume the earlier maps have their slots because they are easier and the later maps - harder. MAP26 is probably the most difficult one. mlm12 reminds me a bit of Going Down, as the levels are small, packed with enemies, and one different from the other. But mind, they are less polished than GD. Some maps have a pretty high 2000's level of detail (the ending corridor from MAP09), some others are much more basic looking (MAP02). IMO they are rather good looking (above average).   Bugs/problems: The mapper leaves all the doortracks without "lower unpegged" flag, so they move with the door, I'm sure he knew how to prevent it but he preferred the doors to behave this way. What is more problematic for me: unreliable W1 monster teleports, places where you can get stuck and decorations impeding player's movement, no Boom actions but some maps require -complevel 9 due to traps not working with limit-removing compatibility.   Favourite maps: 03,08,17,24,25,26. I would definitely recommend giving it a try: the maps are so different everyone will surely find something that appeal to them.
