This guy did an entire castle series. I've only found 2, 4, 5, 7, and 9 but everyone is pretty much forgettable. It's very "my first map" feel and I know this is 1995-1996, but they're still pretty shitty even by those standards. This guy really likes AD&D and it shows since all of his maps are essentially mazes and finding necessary secrets to finish these maps. If you're into MUDs, the Phantasy Star mazes, or the AD&D FPS crawlers this might do it for you if it wasn't so bland with repeating textures.

Passable if you're hungry for more Heretic but there are much better maps out there. The design here is fairly oldschool and basic, with a lot of right angles, but not too unattractive. On the bad side, though, the titular "Combat" is lacking: the level is pretty easy, with a surplus of supplies even on the hardest level. The key doors lack key markers and finding secrets is mandatory.

Annoying that so many secrets are necessary to finish it

Classic good shitty 199x map, it's easy but feels like in Dungeons. Too many ammo for killing monsters, it's the only downside. Worth to play but don't except too many, it's just a oldschool shitty user map at all. :p 2.5/5 -playerlin

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.
