About This File

A 5-level WAD for Doom II.

After strolling through hellish catcombs, you emerge in a greenish pasture. A large fortress lies in front of you. Taking a few steps, you realize you're not alone, and bars descend from the ceiling blocking your way back.

The only way out is through. Good luck! --- NOTE: The wad is designed for single player, although it supports cooperative and deathmatch.

Recommended difficulty: Ultra-Violence!

Quite a cool map set, where you have to resort to monster infighting and chainsawing to win.

the red key on the last map is only flagged for UV and NM, meaning I can't complete that level on a lower setting unless I cheat. other than that, some very fine old-skool maps which are fun to play on if you pay attention to gameplay over design.

The maps here are very nice some wads just have meaningless crap just thrown toghether this is very noticeable that your in a fortress like citadel with very nice placed wall decorations not just random scattered all over. The monsters are placed well with good action feel fire fights You can hide behind pillers and walls its realistic. Theres no red key on easy skill so must be set on hard all the time that was a flaw to this 4 stars

The good: Weapon\health balance in the first four maps, weapons behind the monsters. Looks like a good 1995 level. The bad: 5 times marble styled maps is too much, some repetitive monsters combo's, the simple layout (x4). 3/5 coldfusio

almost good attempt to capture the true vanilla doom2 style. sadly it wasn't properly tested in appropriate ports - "GR Door Open" of first secret on map05 is tagged to zero tag and so brokes entire level.

Just what it says on the tin: a 5-level package chock full of green marble textures. The maps themselves aren't bad, but not special, either, and the last one appears to be lacking a red key. Sorry, I'm not a fan of this. 2/5 - ZZ

Good maps, though nothing too special. All 5 maps are playable from a pistol start, though some might be quite tough until you've hit upon a good strategy. Map03 is perhaps the pick of the bunch, gameplay-wise. Design and architecture are certainly competent.

What can I say? Fun. I like old-school shit like this, even it may let me feel boring when some point of some levels... 4/5 -playerlin

I love those small simple levels. Played it to the end. At the beginning it seemed like ammo was not enough but got better in the next levels. One thing, I couldn't find the red skull key at level five because as I found out later with an editor it was accidentally set to appear only in the hard level. 4/5 - Optimus

3.5 stars - 1 for the diry "must play on UV" trick. Still rounding up to 3.

By the way, when the author said "Recommended difficulty: Ultra Violence!" he was really recommending the hell out of it. The last required key map 5 is absent unless you play on skill 4. C'mon man, don't do that! Well the rest was fun up until that point. 4/5 -Lupinx-Kassman

      I actually used this files MORDETHfb97-dsf but its the same wad with lumps properly organized.    Simply... WOW!!!   Love it from start! I really like exploratory maps with clever puzzles and secrets and pretty good encounters. The maps are neat, detailed, have a really good atmosphere and great architecture. The resources are used in a way that one can't ignore; its just really organic and nothing standouts as unfitting. Perfect texture work, indeed. (Don't know why, but while playing it, Suspended in Dusk by Espi comes to my mind... maybe some of the texture usage remind me of that amazing work).
      The dehacked monsters are good and interesting alternatives.
      I love the fog effect and how it dissapeard when you are near and then appeard again when you look at it from afar. If this was the demo, and after seeing some juicy screenshots, i just can drool dreaming about this long awaited mapset finally being released.

      Thanks MORDETH for this demo, its something really inspiring.
      I doesn't care to wait another twenty years to finally play the complete version ;)

      Slaughtermap for beginners. Simple but effective level design, impressive architecture, great lighting. Arch-viles are a bit overused.
      Played with Meatgrinder mod.

      What a set of maps. At first I only expected random maps that use use Mario textures, but this is so much more. From the cutesy bullet puffs of the weapons, to the plasmagun sprites, there have been more changes than "just" textures. All together they form a very, very coherent picture which makes you almost disappointed, that there are no Mario enemies in the game.   Even then, the actual quality of the maps surprised me quite a bit as well. Very, very fun to play from the beginning to the end, with admittedly frustrating parts (the map featuring only Archies and Revenants or the map featuring ice and wind. Oh god, the ice...). These are not just simple techbases given a Mario texture paint, these maps are well thought out and tailored to the textures, ranging from grass lands, over desert to impressive castle scapes and even an air ship. I played on TYTD not only because I am a wimp, but also because those maps are really, really hard and have some frustrating moments. It speaks for this mapset's quality, though, that you can live with those moments and still enjoy the maps.   Try it out at least.

      I really dig it! Its feel like a Ultimate Doom take of TNT, but its not at that level either.
      Its a great adventure mapset, leaning more to the  atmospheric and realistic architecture.
      First and second episodes are amazing. Introducing the new enemies as the maps unfold. But midway around episode three it start to lose steam, with a serie of really short maps and then maps really similar to the originals, this is not bad at all, just feels a little uninspireds. Fourth episode on the other hand, feels extremely rushed, with a lot of monotexturing and undetailed areas. Its not bad, but coming as the ending episode it could be much better, specially with the degree of detailing the author showed on the precious episodes.

      All the episodes offers a good challenge, even on Hurt Me Plenty, but don't expect anything near the difficulty of NEIS.   All in all, being one of the few complete Ultimate Doom megawads, its pretty good and i liked the new enemies sprites and the music used, almost all the time.

      No, this is not good by any stretch. First 25 levels feel like they are all the same - colorless, flat, dull and bland. Next 3 look like deathmatch arenas with a handful of monsters. Again, all pretty much the same. The last two are pitch black mazes - oh what fun. As for the secret levels - I abandoned both. Map31 is a maze alternating between pitch darkness and flashing primary colours and map 32 is simply an incomprehensible mess. Possibly acceptable if you just want to kill some time with mindless point and shoot, but not what I would call an enjoyable Doom experience. At least it avoids degenerating into slaughter.
