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

      A very cool E2M2 remake, recognizable in its tribute and yet adding so much more to the original map. It is quite sprawling, and finding your way can be tricky at times, but it's never needlessly confusing. The fights are fun but not very hard, apart from the occasional troublesome cyberdemon.

      An engaging map.  Thoughtful traps reminiscent of Death Destiny left me with a sense of impending doom.  I knew I was going to die and die a lot but every fight left me with a sense of reward.  Give this a chance if you're not a fan of hard or challenge styled gameplay.    On UV, a blind playthrough shouldn't take more than an hour.  If you're unfamiliar with Paul977's maps I'd say start with this one then follow with Black Room.

      well what can i say i played this in 3 ways (all on ultra violence)   1 in GZDOOM With Mouse Look crouch/jump disabled  and had a decent time the textures not Lined is pretty neat (except the hell textures) but it felt like a classic Map that might fit in DOOM 2    2 The 2nd way i played this was with Chocolate Doom with the keyboard controls and My Myyyy i had fun decent challenge!   3 the 3rd and final way was With Brutal DOOM V21 and this was probably the most fun i had on this level it was 10 mins of fun mowing down all the Demons   the only complaint i really have is the textures and for a 1994 WAD Its decent    and thats the thing this was made in 1994 when everyone was making WADS for the first time!    and from the Read Me claiming anyone can Use this WAD for additional levels   may even Remaster this WAD :D     3.5 Stars in my book!

      The Good: -  Nice, clean Maps. Nothing fancy. -  Not a slaughterfest, but loads of challenging dog fighting. -  Very little puzzles.   The Bad: - Too many small, nonlinear Maps. - WTF was with M1E8?!? - Wayyyy too many "poison ponds" for my taste. I don't think there was a single level that didn't have them. - Very few secrets - most of which were unrewarding. A Med Pack isn’t exactly what I call rewarding - unless you have less than 10 hit points. So if a reward for finding a secret is a Med Pack, what is that telling you?!?! - Wasn't into starting new chapters (with just a pistol) during the same episode. - Monsters that suddenly spawn from thin air just because you're walking towards a switch.   In Short: If you like dog fighting, then Base Ganymede Ep 1 is for you, so bring your itchy trigger finger. It’s was average as far as fun game play goes. I don’t think I ever saw more Specters and Lost Souls in any other non-slaughter game. The only things above average in this WAD was the amount of monsters, barrels and poison ponds you'll endure.   Not the best WAD I've ever played, but not the worst, either.   2 1/2 out of 5 Stars.

      N.B. this is a review of GATHR2.WAD from Maximum Doom, which excludes the fifth and final map, and doesn't include the custom music   Classic minisode, map one is like a prelude to the main meat (a long road with trees and troopers either side, a tunnel, and then like a 'manhole' into the sewers) - nothing offensive, cool opener. Map two is a classic sewer map with cool switch tricks, tolerable slime tunnels, a barrel trap, cool looking marble zone and a cool final tech area. Map the third starts off the same way map two ended (always love that detail), a fight in a huge water basin, and then around the periphery of, very cool looking, with a semi-secret area that is simply iconic. (Curiously, these last two levels were merged together as GATHER2.WAD, also available on Maximum Doom.) And of course the forth map, a huge complex building surrounded by an outside courtyard guarded by plenty of beasts, nonlinear, varied, filled with memorable traps/scenarios/rooms (love that room with the bunch of thin pole crushers), loads of secrets (although only one 'official' secret), central hub room that transforms when you return to it, every enemy type except the ol' cyberdemon, there's even an outdoor 'balcony bar'.  Yeah, there's way too many megaspheres, whatever.  A classic '95 map pack.
