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.

      Functional map for 1994 but doesn't really have much to offer besides that. The short length isn't really a bad thing, but the basic layout makes it a boring map to play.

      Wow, I didn't know this exists at all!

      Great Wad! Easy on UV due to a lot of items and health scattered around. Music 16 is one of best I've ever heard on Doom. Paul Corfiatis did a great job on this one! 5/5.

      First and foremost, this mod does its job good to an extent. It sets the atmosphere up very well. The fire going out in the beginning is a nice way to start it off and the whole "stuck with nothing but a bow and wit" idea is a good way to execute the gameplay itself. But unfortunately that's as far as positives go. You see, the actual area is so dark that a particular enemy is near impossible to actually see unless you have focus into what exactly you're looking for. Even then, it's a tiny enemy. The one I am referring to is the Creeper. After that obstacle, you have a giant skull that teleports everywhere and a face that will scream nonstop. Unless you're on edge whilst playing this, those will just turn out to be annoying at a point. Then there's the final boss. It flings random shock images at you, ranging from a picture of a clown, to random gore, to the classic picture of the girl from The Exorcist we've all seen plenty of times. Lazy, if anything, considering they're just images with no connection to the actual game whatsoever.   TL;DR: Great concept and beginning, poorer execution. Sure is great reaction material for the unaware, though.
