1994 maps should like this shit, awesome. So many secrets that I like, un-boring fights and nice placed traps, I can't complain...maybe it's old, but for such old-school era, it should be a masterpiece. 5/5 -playerlin

A brilliant 94 WAD, shame this was only fairly recently rediscovered though as it is a truly fun map. Monsters are placed thoughtfully and so is the ammo, the secrets are used well and as far as I could tell there was no texture mis-alignments. I can just imagine this being included in an E1 replacement as it would fit so well maybe as an alternative to Deimos Anomaly 5/5. PS I am only guessing here but maybe tmp stands for The Marble Palace?

Very well done ol'school map. From that POV: solid 4/5, so absolutely worth a play for the fans.

Superb old-school map starts out as a temple (hence the "TMP"?) but the theme varies: parts are nukage sewers, techbase, warehouse, and so on. Texturing is competent for its time. Gameplay is enjoyable, with plenty of monsters to kill. It's never challenging but you're never bored either. Lots of nifty secrets to look out for also helps, as does a clear sense of progression (it's linear but doesn't shove it in your face). The mandatory Cyber showdown is climactic. Recommended. --4/5

Better than average 1994 map with lots of secrets and good fights. Some areas are a bit dark, but still very playable. I didn't find RL or plasma so ended up shotgunning the baddies at the end.

For an ancient map, this fantastic - a true buried treasure that was recently unearthed. Very entertaining, looks alright and certainly a gem from the past. 5* -Phobus

See, maps like this are why people who moan about old maps being uploaded to the archive are wrong. This is a very nice WAD - 1994, obviously, but well-done nonetheless. Quite a few minor niggles like texture misalignments here and there, peggedness mistakes etc., but still - very good. Refreshingly, not every key is accompanied by a trap, and secrets actually have monsters in them. 4/5 (5/5 in 1994). - ZZ

It's a bit poor for me, even despite being historical. 2.5/5

If you're one of those types who can unironically enjoy old pwads, then TMP.wad is for you. Even though it's easy and inconsistent in theme, it's still fun in ways that no modern map could get away with in 2011. Play with IDMUS22 for a better atmosphere. 4/5

1994? This is more something I'd expect out of 1996 for the most part. Unlike most stuff from that year, it's actually a fully enjoyable, even competent, map. A really badly overlooked true old-school gem.

Many thanks yet again to RL for uploading a forgotten gem. It's a little dark for my taste, but a great map nevertheless. Curiosity: there is a wall near the start where you can fall out of the map. Node error?

Cool! Especially for an 1994 map. Left me at the end without ammo and kept fighting 5 barons and 1 cacodemon with the pistol. LOL 4.5/5 - Optimus

Fun map! Curiously, though, I only found the shotgun when I played, which meant I killed the blue skull cyb using my remaining shells and over 250 pistol shots, from ammo I had saved by punching previous monsters with the berserk. [4/5] ~Chain Mail (06/2012)

This map is above average from most other '94 maps, but I didn't enjoy it as much as some of the other "legendary" maps of the same year. There isn't much of a challenge, and there is far too much health and ammo. The theme is also very inconsistent - going from hell brick theme to UAC base theme, and more. The flow wasn't very good overall. The Cyberdemon fight wasn't bad, but wasn't hard, either.

      What a set of maps. At first I only expected random maps that use use Mario textures, but this is so much more. From the cutesy bullet puffs of the weapons, to the plasmagun sprites, there have been more changes than "just" textures. All together they form a very, very coherent picture which makes you almost disappointed, that there are no Mario enemies in the game.   Even then, the actual quality of the maps surprised me quite a bit as well. Very, very fun to play from the beginning to the end, with admittedly frustrating parts (the map featuring only Archies and Revenants or the map featuring ice and wind. Oh god, the ice...). These are not just simple techbases given a Mario texture paint, these maps are well thought out and tailored to the textures, ranging from grass lands, over desert to impressive castle scapes and even an air ship. I played on TYTD not only because I am a wimp, but also because those maps are really, really hard and have some frustrating moments. It speaks for this mapset's quality, though, that you can live with those moments and still enjoy the maps.   Try it out at least.

      I really dig it! Its feel like a Ultimate Doom take of TNT, but its not at that level either.
      Its a great adventure mapset, leaning more to the  atmospheric and realistic architecture.
      First and second episodes are amazing. Introducing the new enemies as the maps unfold. But midway around episode three it start to lose steam, with a serie of really short maps and then maps really similar to the originals, this is not bad at all, just feels a little uninspireds. Fourth episode on the other hand, feels extremely rushed, with a lot of monotexturing and undetailed areas. Its not bad, but coming as the ending episode it could be much better, specially with the degree of detailing the author showed on the precious episodes.

      All the episodes offers a good challenge, even on Hurt Me Plenty, but don't expect anything near the difficulty of NEIS.   All in all, being one of the few complete Ultimate Doom megawads, its pretty good and i liked the new enemies sprites and the music used, almost all the time.

      No, this is not good by any stretch. First 25 levels feel like they are all the same - colorless, flat, dull and bland. Next 3 look like deathmatch arenas with a handful of monsters. Again, all pretty much the same. The last two are pitch black mazes - oh what fun. As for the secret levels - I abandoned both. Map31 is a maze alternating between pitch darkness and flashing primary colours and map 32 is simply an incomprehensible mess. Possibly acceptable if you just want to kill some time with mindless point and shoot, but not what I would call an enjoyable Doom experience. At least it avoids degenerating into slaughter.

      Pros: Straightforward, lot of action, no button madness. Plays smooth. Classic Doom feeling.
      Cons: Lots of invisible lines blocking monsters. Lots of hitscanners and not enough health packs.

      An enjoyable set of maps of easy difficulty (MAP 07 is medium) in UV with simple design that worked well for me. Finished the whole set in 02:40 min. Certainly worth a shot!
