About This File

Short E2-styled (I think) map. The first half is pure Tyson, later you'll find the shotgun. I plan to make full E2 replacement, but I'm very slow (this map was started in 2008...), so I will upload these maps one by one.

This is one of Memfis's earliest maps (2008 according to the text file), which shows in the unrefined design. The opener of a promised Episode 2 replacement, Voyage to Deimos, which never came to fruition, visual appeal tends to be highest when it's dark. Otherwise it mostly looks bland. Geometry doesn't sway from the rectangular. Floors and ceilings of sectors seem left with whatever texture Doom Builder assigned them upon creation. Years later, Memfis would specialize in an appealing, clever mode of lower-detail design, but this is more of the "novice" sort. 

 

As for gameplay, it's straightforward warm-up Doom 1 stuff: pistol to start, 'zerk early, shotgun later; lots of imps and pea-shooter zombiemen, occasional pinkies and lost souls, the rare caco.

 

That's nothing groundbreaking, but I won't comment on it, because once I found the berserk pack, I decided "now we're punching stuff" and did nothing else.

 

Health is scarce, so the cacos are a bit tricky, and shotgunners lurk the later shadows in good numbers. Without the benefit of range, I once had to platform and then box imps point blank. A partial invisibility secret enacts a clever trade-off; it can help with the shotgunners, but it complicates dealing with the imps, both of which often commingle.  

 

The map was uncommonly well suited to that and my punching ability, and I enjoyed myself. So 4/5.

A decent looking map with a good use of minor monsters to create a challenge. I got a bit overeager with the tysoning at the start and lost some health so I had to play is slow and took more like 17 minutes to reach the exit, but didn't die, even though my health was rather low all along, which made it suspenseful.

      Another in the Titan series. One of the simplest if you calmly take the time to find the hidden weapons. Moderately long but entertaining. Abstract.

      It took me several tries to unwrap the map but I really enjoyed it. J Flynn still amazes me. A tricky great map.

      This map is beautiful to look at and amazing to play. It reminds me of a something I'd see from a map in the late 90s and I love it.

      I'm breaking up with Valiant to start my new love with Hellbound. Best DOOM mapset that has been made. I have replayed it more than once with Brutal DOOM Platinum and Final Doomer(Hellboundguy class) and I still can't get tired of it. Cities, hellish maps, tech bases, I just love it. I also really like the combination of E2M1, E2M2 and E2M3 in Map19. Amazing stuff right there, I strongly recommend this

      I forgot to review it when I first finished it, but I played it again with final doomer so I think it's time.   Ancient aliens is beautiful, and it plays as well as it looks.  SkillSaw gives some of his best maps in his career, only matched by his heartland performance.  But the heavy lifting is really done by the presentation, stewboys midis always fit, and the fact the soundtrack is bespoke is incredible.  I personally enjoy all of the maps, only the secret maps have any issues fitting in, and secret maps are allowed to not be great.  My only issue with the wad are the inconsistent 3rd episode, and ironically it's skillsaw's work in that episode that is probably the worst (So good, but not as good as the earlier work in the wad) as the rest of the team turns in great work.
