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 a bad map, despite it's rawness in layout parts. Fun map with some interesting special effects, especially for the final part of the map. Good gameplay flow as well.

      Had a lot of fun with this mapset, which is inspired in PWADs of the Olden Tymes. The visuals are pretty ugly, but the intrincate layouts, often probably freehand drawn, compensate for that. Most maps are linear but have branches, loops and optional areas which make them interesting to explore. Only the first maps were a bit weaker in my opinion. My favourite map was probably MAP09 with the huge height differences and some cool vistas of an underground (retro)futuristic city.   Gameplay is mostly easy, with some exceptions like MAP08 but which seldom really reach "Plutonia" difficulty, although hitscanners can drain the often relatively scarce health fastly and there are some surprise traps as well. However, you're often given more than adequate weaponry, like BFGs for some cover-less archviles.   The "vedette" of this mapsets are the secret hunts: while some tripwire lift secrets were a bit too difficult to hear for my taste, I'm very fond above all of the tiny ledges and the shootable switches in unconventional locations. Huge LOL to the cute midis, above all map04 and map11, and "Children" sounded almost like the original (did Robert Miles use my soundfont)? Anyway, that mapset inspired me to look into really old maps and mapsets before the Memento Mori era. Deserves its cacoward (4,5/5).

      Thanks to a post by Maes, I found out about this wad. The Maniac MIDI is catchy and fun, and the level itself is still an enjoyable romp today. The idea that you're under the sea is a creative touch.

      If this was the 2001 year I would rate this 5/5. But in 2022 this wad is nothing but a lame retro.   I got the feeling that this wad was trying to showcase the advanced Zdoom capabilities rather than trying to create a good game play, and even with the advanced features the design still feels flat!   HMP or lower players will probably enjoy this as it is a below average difficulty with plenty of ammo/items.   I wanted to rate this 2.5/5 stars, but since half star cannot be selected I rated it 3 stars. We really need to be able to select half a star in rating.
