About This File

This is an E2M1 level that could just as easily be an E1M1 version but to keep it out of shareware hands I made it an E2. (really guys, you should go ahead and register. You won't be disappointed.) The idea here wasn't to create a huge level but instead this is to be used as a launching point for additional levels/missions. The puzzles are basic and the shootouts (IMHO) are fun rather than always being cut-throat.

Surprisingly good... for a 1994 WAD. Sure, I'll give it some credit for being from back in the day, but for sure this didn't need a re-upload. There is a blue key and a yellow key which you don't even need to get to flip the exit switch. The bosses are not even bosses because they are not manditory to fight. ** + * for being a blast from the past. ***

0/5 not for the wad, but for the uploader. You've included nothing from the author giving permission to reupload (even though such a txt exists), and apparently didn't care. The text-file you have made is farcical. Apparently, this wad was on D!Zone 2 (including txt).

This is an actual 1994 WAD, larger than average and as a result very sparsely populated, with a grand total of 51 monsters (on UV). There's exactly one Cacodemon and one Baron of Hell as "bosses", but you literally have to go out of your way to find them, as you can just flick the exit switch 30 seconds into the level. Detail and layout are crude but with clever use of lighting, and the SFX replacements are corny most of the time, but a few are actually decent. A good blast into the past. 2.5/5 -Maes

A classic shitty 1994 wad, lighting is cool, but it's only. Put exit switch too early without any reason so you can just finish it in some seconds if you want. Those SFX replacements want me say "WTF?" or just feel funny. Music is good but...just a waste for a shitty wad. But it made on 1994 so who care? :p Nah...this wad just shitty but well, not bad for a old-school maps lover. :p 2.5/5 -playerlin

The level's a typical example of a 1994 WAD, and a *bad* 1994 WAD for that matter, and the new sound effects are just as stupid. I did like the music, admittedly (not that it really fit the level), so I'll give it one star for that at least. 1/5 - ZZ

      Awesome megawad. Great gameplay and visuals. New monsters... super coherent. Cheers :)

      Not that crazy as you can think from the title, it's a interesting map with some cool design choices and some nice small puzzles as well. Fun to play and run swell.

      Conceptually a pretty cool map, have a nice retextures of wall using the ice floor, giving more context to the main theme of icy cavern present here, the layout is good, some room design are pretty good for the age it was done (especially the starting area) but it's unfortunately ruined by two things: excessive slippery floors and a no exit lava pit, as well as the random nature of switches placement that activates something... somewhere. Where is not given to you to known, the same things happens for a secret (mandatory) corridors areas that connect the said grave. But despite this, is not that bad, actually!

      Meh, conceptually is not a bad map but in reality is really boring. Lots of squares and platforms, lacks of powerful guns and a boring gameplay. Also how the exit can be activated? The teleports are shitty as well.
