About This File

A multi-level project that replaces the first four missions of the game with my very own classic-style maps designed to look like a set of "lost levels" created by id Software's John Romero and crew way back in 1994.

too often we see a set that is basically an E1 replacement, with no real changes to anything besides "this is an episode 1 replacement with a style similar to the real deal except I made it" or something along the lines. this one is no different, although it really is only half of an episode. but is there anything eye-popping here? no. it's all average at the very best, definitely not any better than the real E1 although it does have some minor homages. but there's nothing that's gonna make this memorable. now, there was effort, but not a whole lot of it. this set really does look like something a newbie mapmaker would make in just a few days. what's also strange is how this one for some reason requires a ZDoom based port, although there's next to nothing ZDoom-y about it. it was intended to be a "lost episode" and while you can probably say that, is there anything here that is really good enough?

Cool mapset in DTWID style, unluckily E1M4 is all broken and unfinished for some reasons.

Cool and fun mapset btw.

not bad, but where is the boss fight? This set feels like not completed.

Way to derivative - to the point that it seems the author is copy pasting the source material. But to his credit, game play was fun easy and their were no noteworthy bugs to report. 3/5 -FoH

These maps look like there was no effort put into them. No effort at all. - 0/5 Zalewa

Imo gameplay (UV) does not really 'start' - iow: there is little tension. Visual style is ok, so overall 3/5.

Very nice, actually. Difficulty starts VERY low, but ramps up a bit, and so does the spartan detailing; the third and fourth levels are quite decent. All maps capture the E1 feeling well enough, too. All in all, it could still be better, and it could be longer, but I had fun playing this. 4/5 - ZZ

It's kinda nice oldschool stuff that brings memories. Some places that could be improved, yet some good ideas there. 3.5/5 - Optimus

Tried it on PrBoom+ 2.5.1.1 and it works fine up until e1m4. You're trapped in the beginning room because the door won't open. I tried shooting it, punching it, spammed use on the walls. Nothing. Other than that, it's meh. 2/5

Yawn. Mediocre maps in a very overcrowded genre - the E1-style. See Double Impact for a good example of how this type of map can actually be made interesting and attractive for modern Doomers. Gameplay here is weak and stereotyped. I've no idea why it is meant to require Zdoom (maps like these shouldn't), but I'm not inclined to spend time investigating.

I don't mind sticking to the basic style but, unfortunately this is too basic. Needs more action/non-linearity , at the least.

It's a nice job if we're talking 1994/1995 style, but this is not just that...too basic, too id style like it's nothing. Well, I won't be harsh but I think it's still needed more works or it's just a "better" 1994 mapset with "looks like id official maps but it's not". 3.5/5 -playerlin

      First of all, I love that the author has put love into the map, you can tell by simply the Marine on the ground (it made me laugh)   The map is fine apart from some minor beginner errors, I would recommend making the hallways narrower, having them be so big doesn't really add anything when there is only 1 enemy or none at all.   I liked the map for its simplicity, yes, I would have wished that the rooms like the dining room, where the life potions are, had been more frequent, more than anything because of the amount of enemies and life there are.

      OMG I LOVE THIS MAP   Let's start with the fact that they literally give us free rein to explore the map with our pretty shotgun and I will always appreciate those things.   I love the ending because it is very silly and requires preparation to do it.   This map is beautiful and I love it.   PD: Contamination for you

      Well, for 1994 it is incredible   I love that verticality is used, I even love the level design, especially the puzzle of the doors, I love it   For the last part of the map it seemed like a medium high difficulty but when I killed everyone on the water ladder I was pleasantly impressed, I quite liked it.

      I played up to The Crusher and... frankly, it soured the taste in my mouth to the point that I don't want to continue and try all of the maps.    Surprisingly hideous and wonderfully claustrophobic architecture, with monotonic texture usage and gimmicks at every turn of the map. Then of course the Arch-Vile maze because apparently it's a necessity to copy the Casalis at least once in your mapping career. The crushing ceiling was just the cherry on the top. Not a fan.

      It was interesting,sometimes fun,sometimes hard,sometimes annoyingly hard but we later smile about it(Going Down feeling you know?),i loved the fact that everything feels and look different in terms of level design,sounds,texures and visuals,and the music is here to say to you "you're on a vacation/exploration trip...but not too much,it's Doom !",and technically some levels are great creations,obviously with a modified Id Tech 1,because the original one couldn't do things that some level showed i guess.   Ancient Aliens have a very good overall feeling to play,it's Doom,with a bit of Blake Stone,Star Wars,System Shock and maybe others inspirations,it's very risky to merge differerents inspirations into one big work.   DeadLostSoul,Commander Keen,EvilMarines new enemies are nice too.   My favorites Levels :   Arachnotron Arrival (Nice constant spider in the middle that keeps the pressure on you to move or hide,i liked the monster placements and traps too)   Last Refuge Of The Anasazi   Sinkhole Showdown   Dare To Fly Where Eagles Soar   Ancient Aliens   The Nectar Flow (Huge Level and fun to play)   Polychromatic Terrace   Blazing Boulevard   Wormhole Junction (Damn this is a Going Down Style level !)   Leave Your Sol Behind (A three time height ramp/elevator[don't know how to call that]in Doom? Didn't know that was possible,and flying saucers travel to others worlds,seriously?,didn't expected that o_O,loved the creativity on this level)   Daylight Under A Dark Sol   Culture Shock (A level in the clouds and touching the sky,successive teleporters,a tv working,ropes to elevate yourself,real scales,we need more levels like this,It reminds me that WOW EFFECT i had with Zeal World in Chrono Trigger when i saw all that,too bad it was short,but fantastic idea)   I Skipped Illuminati Confirmed (Too many details and enemies,lags as hell can't do anything,it looked like an insane level)   I Skipped Trinary Temple (Too Much Lags)   I Skipped The Ones Behind It All (Too Much Lags)   The lasts levels lags a lot on Brutal Doom,but that's not your fault,i don't want to play Vanilla Doom,BD is way better to me haha.
