About This File

This map was originally built for Doomworlds speedmapping contest, base theme. A WadAuthor error 70 minutes into the contest deleted the map. Since I was pretty happy with how the map had progressed to that point, I rebuilt the map from memory, plus added a lot more. However, I never submitted the map to Doomworld for the contest since I was way to late. The map, I believe, still rates as being considered small. Depending on your style of play and skill, it should take you about 10 to 20 minutes to finish.

My aim was to have the finished map have a clean uncluttered look and feel to it. I tried to work in enough detail to make the overall appearance look interesting. I'm not entirely happy with the flow of combat in some areas, but it's close enough, as I was making myself crazy constantly tinkering with the map. I hope you enjoy.

Good small map, but stealth monsters is BAD, try avoid use them in this kind of small map.(Silent teleports is OK but I guess those stealth monsters make that is not cool...), gameplay and the looking are good, lot of secrets and not hard to find, nice! 4/5 -playerlin

A good map. Has some good battles... yes, sometimes the combat can be uneven, but I do like it. Keep it up. Hope to see more. 4/5 for the effort after losing the original map.

It's clear that plenty of work went into this map, and I'd say it paid off. Nice simple layout with clean detailing and solid combat. ZDoom features are used lightly but effectively, and there are plenty of secrets to discover. There's enough backtracking to give the player an appreciation of the space and layout in a single playthough, but not so much that the backtracking becomes tedious. The map isn't too tough, and while the ammo balance is very forgiving, I can't really fault it for that. 4/5

      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!

      I rarely quit a wad in disgust, but this one did it. It was pushing a 5 star experience, but then the slaughter stupid started ~map19 and only got worse. It's not clever, not amusing and absolutely not entertaining. It ruined an otherwise good wad and left a very sour taste. Why do mappers do this? Played on HNTR and it really was that bad.

      I have a real blast while playing this megawad. Think that Quake is not brown enough? You will get the ultimate browness here. I think that, beside the simplistic ugliness of it, it gives a good cohesive look to all the maps. And this one are really big and fun to explore. The ideas of cities, fortresses, islands, canyons and caves, and finaly tech base on moon, are really neat and some looks really good. The story of the wad is pretty good, too. I love the liberties that the author takes while doing this mapset. As i played a lot and i found this kind of ideas in a few wads along the way.
      What i didn't like it much, is that there wasn't other skies than the episode one sky from Doom 2. Again, i think it is that way for a cohesive storytelling, but anyway, it would be cool to feel the sense of time in the maps with different skies and shadows deploying in differents ways along the maps.

      This could be the Eternal Doom of doom stock textures, but the linearity of the maps, aside from the somewhat empty but interesting areas to explore, departs slighty from the formula, and there are not soo much details as one might expect from a mapset like this. Don't get fooled by that, even with the somewhat Heretic-like linearity, the maps are fun, gorgeous in its brownway and pretty challenging.
        I recommend this megawad to anyone that likes to explore and have a challenge in the vein of the best of team TNT mapsets.
