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. :)

Pretty much the perfect Heretic map. Nothing about it is incredibly grandiose, it's just good simple fun. The gameplay is a bit tough, but totally fair. There's enough ammo & breathing room that it feels satisfying to clear out each room. The architecture & lighting are in the classic E1 style, but a bit better detailed, with some nice directional shadows. The level design is simple (just one key required), but manages to be non-linear in a rewarding fashion. Even the secrets stood out as nice. Really, its only crime is being too short.

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.

      Not that crazy as you can think from the title, it's a interesting map with some cool design choices and some nice small puzzles as well. Fun to play and run swell.

      Conceptually a pretty cool map, have a nice retextures of wall using the ice floor, giving more context to the main theme of icy cavern present here, the layout is good, some room design are pretty good for the age it was done (especially the starting area) but it's unfortunately ruined by two things: excessive slippery floors and a no exit lava pit, as well as the random nature of switches placement that activates something... somewhere. Where is not given to you to known, the same things happens for a secret (mandatory) corridors areas that connect the said grave. But despite this, is not that bad, actually!

      Meh, conceptually is not a bad map but in reality is really boring. Lots of squares and platforms, lacks of powerful guns and a boring gameplay. Also how the exit can be activated? The teleports are shitty as well.

      Not a bad DM map, have a nice layout with many height variation but no textures variations unluckily, even the end is set on a random unmarked wall that is not even in the exit room. Gameplay is pretty neat, i like it even playing with the bots.

      This right here is one of the oldest joke wads ever made, and its parodies of bad map design are still relevant to this day.
