About This File

Well,...you arrive at a pre-determined point in the level...and you find some weapons and ammo...and you take a look around...and you see some really scary bit-maps come at you...and you shoot them with your 8-bit "Digi-Blaster"...and they groan and fall over. No mystery here...just common sense. )

Seriously, folks, this WAD has a ton of high quality samples that I felt the need to have. The size of this file is huge because of it. The base level is around 270kb ! The sounds and MIDI equal around 310kb! And this .TXT file alone is bigger than most peoples' complete WAD's.

The MIDI file that I included was written exclusively for an SB16 or compatible - that means FM Synthesis. I felt that writing for this platform would be about the best way to convey the music to a general audience. If you have one of those wave-table synthesis jobs...Well, good for you and your good taste (again!). I, unfortunately, just have the wonderful FM synthesis to work with (and so do millions of other users). I just figured that the needs of the many outweighed the needs of the few (where have I heard that before?). Now, if you want to talk about 16 bit 44.1khz digital audio samples... That's opening another can of Imps...GOTHIC MIDI mostly deals with "CD quality" samples for use with synths and samplers...Be on the lookout for GOTHIC files on C-Serve...

If you find this file to be too big in size...Maybe your Nintendo is calling for you! If you find that it needs to be bigger, drop me a line and we'll Co-Author a Mother.WAD.

Originally, this level was intended to be E2M1 but I wanted the sky texture in the first Episode. From here on in, it's E2M1 (to conform to id Software's request).

Another worthy note: If you open this file in an Editor program you will lose the music and the sound effects. Always make a backup before you hack it up!

Again, GOTHIC MIDI is Multimedia...and yes, that includes text!! (I don't do shabby work...If it's worth doing...it's worth doing right).

There's never too much plasma. I enjoyed the midi and sound replacements. Easy and fun.

Mostly agree with 1st voter. Simple layout with useless rooms, simple texture use, almost no decoration, very simple gameplay. No nice sceneries, no gameplay tricks. @ UV way, way too much ammo. New sounds are horrible. Overall it gave an enthousiastic but quite amateurish impression. BTW @ 5* legendary voters: please take a look for f.e. Unloved, Roch, or Eternall DooM III & Return from Oblivion, then you'll understand why 5* for this map is silly.

Pretty cool. White\/silver design reminiscent of Icarus, interesting progression with some clever confusing bits and the new midi is magnificent. Shame about too much plasma though, it makes things rather easy.

Many thanks to RL for uploading this nice wad by a good mapper (see also his "Palace of Malice" for Heretic - it's in the archive). I found my way around the map with no problems, and I don't think there is any need to use cheat codes whatever order you visit the areas, contrary to the first review above - there are ways back and between all areas. The map doesn't spoonfeed you things, but it certainly shouldn't be at all aggravating for an experienced Doomer. Design is clean and to my eyes pleasant.

This is a poorly designed level in all aspects. Every singly trap is a door that locks from the inside, forcing you to hit a switch. Some of them don't have one, so if you get stuck, you'll have to idclip. 99% of the hallways are bland, having usually 1 texture stretch the whole thing. SFX replacement is horrid overall. If you go into the red key area WITHOUT the key, there is NO way of getting back unless you cheat. Textures clash alot, and an early plasmarifle for zombiemen. Avoid. 2/5 -BloodyAcid

Nice map. Good, simple style. A bit too easy though (too much ammo & health).

Pretty fun map. I kinda liked the grey theme for some reason.

to the first reviewer, try shooting doors that have no obvious switched associated with them. You get the BFG at the end which is silly. Other than that, I liked this, and I thought the custom song was pretty nice too!

Good classic map, have some fun but feel too easy, at least the plasmagun helps, shooting all monsters just with shotgun is stupid, or... I just cannot found other weapons like chaingun or BFG... :\ 3.5/5 -playerlin

      Awesome megawad. Great gameplay and visuals. New monsters... super coherent. Cheers :)

      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.
