Classic shitty map from 1995...I accidentally hit the secret exit and the door were not like a proper door even its sector wasn't a secret area so it made no sense...the whole level just...shitty, nothing else, bad door textures, random texturing everywhere, the weak monsters and more than enough amount of ammo made this level so easy, just easily get lost due blend and bad textures/texturing in whole level. 2/5 -playerlin

I liked the use of lighting and creepy texture use here, some parts of the design seemed creative. The fights are decent with the slime and hitscanners. Its flaws are the need to use silent switches (on console blocks) and that if you don't you can get stuck without a needed key. The secret exit is not marked, although I reached it at the end with the automap powerup. The music is fine and the sounds creepy and seem original but removable because they are too crude.

Slightly large, ugly nukeage base of some sort. Progression is a little confusing and involves some running back and forth. Fights are easy, with only smaller monsters and plenty of ammo. Two exits exist, the secret one is found in one of the many hidden and superfluous side areas. Several doors are completely unmarked and several switches have unclear effects. There's a helpful (proper) secret area right at the start. Overall, feels very rough around the edges and is not worth your time. --1/5

I got stuck in the SE map section, while holding only the yellow key. There was a lift in the building surrounded by nukage that I could activate but not get on. Wandered around looking for switches, secrets, but found nothing. Seems like not well playtested...

I kinda like the big places in this map and you don't easilly get lost. The design sometimes is very simple (one texture over the place) or not so alligned but I don't mind that. Though, to reach some places for normal progression you need to find secrets, also there are many secrets without the secret tag. 2.5/5 - Optimus

      Possibly my favorite Ultimate Doom megawad. Although its first half feels like DTWID, it quickly becomes a much more twisted and demented take on the familiar techbase/hell aesthetic. Expect well hidden secrets, tight corridors, and some tough encounters in large, complex levels. In keeping with Ult Doom's tone, NaturalTvventy layers the atomphere on thick to create levels that feel genuinely hostile and evil, even more so than in the original.    If you have a soft spot in your heart for the original Ultimate Doom, this megawad is a must play. NEIS makes you realize how rock solid the original Doom formula is, even without the SSG and revenants.

      An odd wad in which you play a Hexen class while fighting Heretic monsters in Heretic-textured levels. Surprisingly, it works pretty well, and is an interesting change of pace from either game. It retains Hexen's hub design, although it's not at all puzzley, just a "go and collect 3 items and return to the hub" quest. It's very combat-focused (there's almost 400 enemies in the final level), but unlike some Heretic maps, it doesn't end up feeling like a slog. Perhaps Hexen's weapons are just more powerful than Corvus's. The level design is very good, besides a couple of sore spots (the cramped areas of the lava level, the metal maze in the final level). The boss, D'Sparil, is much easier to kill than he was in Heretic; he probably should've been modded to have a better chance against Hexen's warriors.

      A fun heavily modified tougher version of Doom 1's E1M6 dated back in April of 94(yes same month of origwad). Its starts a bit hectic but with so many shotgun guys and plenty of health throughout the map, its actually not that hard to go through. However like any 94 wad, it has typical misaligned textures, a few HOMs, and had to use noclip cheat to grab the last card key due to ceiling being too low to pass under. Despite its age and a few minor stuff, its a fun wad from 1994 and I would recommend to give it a try :)

      Excellent wad for Hexen fans. It stays true to the style/spirit of the original game while introducing new ideas. The level / hub design is interesting, the combat is well-balanced, texturing is well-done and well-aligned, and there are plenty of interesting scripted events. The wings are used in a very smart way - you're able reach many previously unreachable items and paths. The only thing I disliked was the "boss" of the final level. I won't spoil it, but it's quite disappointing.   Unfortunately there is a bug in The Castle Of Fluft - the flame mask switch is not set to "repeatable", so if you try to use it without the prerequisite mask, you won't be able to use it again when you do. If you encounter this bug, type "puke 10" to activate the script the mask normally would.

      This seems like a semi-hidden gem. The author's other WAD Crimson Canyon won a Cacoward, though I prefer this one.   It certainly lives up to its namesake. The textures are all Hell's green marble and blood, supplemented with custom textures including some modified Giger designs and some creepy sprites I recognize from Monolith's Blood. The map designs are seriously contorted. It's probably a divisive aspect of the set. In some levels the angular layouts wrap around themselves in a jagged mesh, creating devilish mazes with slightly obscure progression, and where fireballs can fly at you from different parts of the map. Other parts are darker and more claustrophobic. It's all a totally hostile atmosphere.   There are some common themes gameplay-wise but you'll know them by map 2. A big one is ammo constriction, especially on UV. Certain maps seem near unbeatable without finding key secrets.   This was actually one of the first WADs I completed a few years ago, and on revisiting it it feels very fresh. Like most memorable WADs, it rides on strong concepts and some devilish gameplay while targeting a distinctive theme.
