About This File

You'll be swimming in blood ! Activate 17 skulls to gain access to main gate. There, an army of imps (supported by some cacos) will attack you. Slaughter them all before you can access the exit.

This is my first released map. It was originally intended to be a small map, but then it grew a bit bigger then planned...

Includes a small intro and some scripting.

Well... good. Most of the level is spent in ppols of blood, making gameplay extremely frustrating. Also ZDoom was used well, there were bugs like sergeants stuck in the ground. The base is finding 17 switches which is almost impossible due to the slow movement. I will say that you did good for your first released map... so ***.

DOOM is fun because it's an extremely fast-paced action game. Being stuck in water (or blood) and being slowed down, thus, makes it less fun. It's not a bad level for a first WAD, but I couldn't motivate myself to play it for more than 8 or 10 minutes before quitting.

I'm finished this but those water/blood pools slows me down and annoying me, well, it's not a bad level, it use ZDooM shit well, not bad. But switch hunting and slow blood walking make me feel a little sick and boring... :\ 2.5/5 -playerlin

Almost entirely done in wood/metal textures, rather symmetrical overall, and requiring you to dive underwater to find many tunnels, making navigation confusing. You'll spend almost the entire map at least partially submerged in swimmable blood, slowing down the action. Gameplay is a literal switch hunt, forcing you to find over 17 switches, usually with no idea what they do. I got bored and quit before finishing. Try again, Charlie! 1/5

      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

      Rizera would have surely enjoyed this map, it's just not for me, I find it tedious, but 100% Rizera fan   (also i figure out how softlock me)

      As Jack the Ripper said: "Let's go in parts"   Decoder (MAP01): Quite short, I quite liked it although it seemed to me that there was very little room to maneuver in the first and last part of level 4/5   Look into my Eyes (MAP02): much shorter than the previous one but this one is more focused on traps, in which I almost fell a couple of times and I was able to take advantage of the last trap quite well against the demons 5/5   Mechanized Wrath (MAP03): I HATE THIS, mainly because it is a level that depends a lot on luck that the lord does not shoot right when you teleport and it was only because of that luck that I passed it 2/5   Batallion (MAP04): I really liked the dynamics of small confrontations and that you can choose if you want to start it instead of whether or not to start it after a combat 5/5   Templar (MAP05): this is quite annoying to be honest, especially the end, when you think everything is done, the most annoying enemies of all Doom2 appear THE FUCKING ARCH-VIL 3/5   Kill John (MAP06): WE WERE GOING SO GOOD, BUT WE HAD TO RUIN IT WITH THE OLD "level with artificial difficulty that is only there so that you can't pass it in at least 1 hour of attempts" 1/5   Look now, in retrospect, after having passed each and every one, it's not that bad, I mean yes, more space would be needed in some areas and fewer enemies in levels 3 and 6, but I honestly think that Obsidian, when it comes to making the maps, he didn't really care about that, they were his first times creating them and therefore his obvious inexperience shows, but they are 30 minute maps after all, so... Good   Here I leave you some screenshots of the first levels, since they are the only ones in which I was able to take nice screenshots.
