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

      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.

      Not a bad DM map, have a nice layout with many height variation but no textures variations unluckily, even the end is set on a random unmarked wall that is not even in the exit room. Gameplay is pretty neat, i like it even playing with the bots.

      This right here is one of the oldest joke wads ever made, and its parodies of bad map design are still relevant to this day.
