About This File

Story: After the lifeless bodies of D'sparils body guards crumble and fall to the ground, for the first time in ages you feel a sense a sense of relief... as you enter the portal that finally takes you... home?

This is a challenging map for Heretic, and your gonna need to keep moving as well as taking full advantage of artifacts if you want to survive.

I decided to touch up on an old map, add a few areas and release so that it didn't just gather dust on my hard drive. I might release another bigger, and more epic Heretic map in the future to go alongside this one, but we'll see how things go. :)

Short map with simple layout - there is not much to do. Ambiance is ok but not special. Gameplay @ UV is not difficult, strafing is the way to go; ammo is tight, so creating infighting is necessary. Overall: I very like Heretic levels, but given the skyhigh ratings above, this one is disappointing; +1 because we need more Heretic maps = small 3*. BTW @ 5* voters: there are a lót of Heretic maps in the archive which are much, much better, so sorry, but this one is not legendary at all.

Very good single map wad for Heretic. If only more people would make maps of this calibre for this unappreciated game I would be a happy man. Would be nice to see more maps from this author for Heretic. 4/5 Kristus.

Excellent Heretic wad by a skilled mapper. Ammo balance might have been a tad bit on the tight side, but then again, I probably suck at using inventory. So yeah, good stuff. -Snakes

Nice work, even it's hard(if you go wrong way, then get ass kicked), but I have a lot of fun with it, and a rarely good piece of Heretic map I must say. The layout just a bit confusing me so I take some time to found it out. 4/5 -playerlin

Woah! Why have I not seen this level before?!? I love a good Heretic map that stays true to the first episode (Docks theme) and makes it look pretty without someone having to throw in some 2nd or 3rd episode stuff in. It was a bit short, however it was perfect.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
