About This File

Two-pack of separate WADs entitled "Fear of the Dark" and "Blood of the Earth" respectively. These are the first two maps I've ever created - they may be included in a SomethingAwful community megawad in the future but I'm releasing them as stand-alones for people to check out. Both levels can be played and completed from a pistol start (as I would recommend to get the intended effect). Neither is particularly long and shouldn't be overly difficult for an experienced Doomer, though ammo and health are fairly tightly judged, so bear that in mind.

The first map isn't bad; pretty short, but with a unique style and a few nice touches. The second map cannot be completed in GZDoom as far as I can tell. 3/5 for the first, 0/5 for the second. - ZZ

Map01 is actually very good. The layout is funny and looks good. Gameplay is OK, just using SSG to deal with all monsters, I like it. But Map02...this is a good example for mappers should check their map(s) before release. Looks like the starting area is wrong because there is no way to get out and deadly stuck, too bad! I only rating Map01 because it's not fair rating it low by fault of Map02. 4/5 -playerlin

Map 02 is junk that doesn't have any solution. Doors won't open. And I'm using the proper version of GZDoom. These wads suck. 1.5/5.

      More tripe.  Huge badly designed and featureless rooms that give you leg ache just watching going through them. The opposition from monsters is pitiful.

      A busted crock of shit. The map is random scribble, it's insane.  Why do they upload this tripe?  The third screenshot above gives an idea what to expect.

      Consists of some rooms to be opened in key sequence from a central area. Doors are narrow and each reveals a row of monsters waiting for you, and you don't have enough ammo (I had to cheat). No atmosphere, bright lighting, and mostly Wolfenstein-ish cuboid rooms. Technically OK, with minor texture mis-matches. At least his own summary was modest.   Give it a miss.

      cannonball is yet another mapper who will probably take some getting used to when it comes to his maps. I remember hating on Return to Hadron when I first played it, but after subsequent plays it got easier. the same can be said for a lot of his other wads.   while this is my first time playing through Sparta 2, I easily got into cannonball's playstyle. his architecture style is always the same, as are his usage of monsters, basically you'll be running around often in the heat of monsters; the space is wide enough to accomodate this kind of playstyle and you just gotta be quite wary of where projectiles are flying. even if the monster count is low the layouts make things rough. but overall, what I like most about cannonball's maps is how well they can be run through. sure, you're gonna be dealing with a fuckload of carnage in these maps, but they all are very speedrun-friendly which is a plus. notable maps include:   MAP08, which is probably the roughest start in the wad MAP12, which has a false sense of security with its monster count. the two slaughter finales which are both well done.

      I don't pretend to understand any of the promotional material accompanying this map, relating to wizards and the like, and it just seems like a typically unsubtle early offering, albeit on a grand scale. One of the reviews says you can't get out of the Cyberdemon arena once you've teleported into it near the start, but the bad news is that you can. The final room with the Spider Mastermind is quite lively and entertaining, if you persevere that far.   The version of this I played was a Doom 2 conversion, which ran in the MAP10 slot, with some Revenants, chaingunners and Pain Elementals, but if you download the one on this page you'll probably get the original wad.
