About This File

A Hell-themed map that I originally created for a community megawad project. That project fell flat on its face, so I decided to keep the map as a stand-alone experience. This was the very first time I'd worked exclusively with this theme, so it was both challenging and a great learning experience. I believe this is one of my best maps yet, with non-linear gameplay and well-balanced difficulty.

Stays true to that classic feel. Zdoom effects used well and sparingly such that you barely notice it. Game play is fun and simple. I also like the non linearity of it to, although at times it goes to far with the constant use of literal mazes. 4/5 FoH

What? 4 stars? Damns, my feets hurts from running over all the lavas, and the layout is pretty pedestrian. It's not terrible, and it's a fun little map to play once, but hell, classic or above average means replay value, and this map ain't got that.

A barely average map, with dull gameplay, some flaws (such as "monsters can't cross" lines in open space) and a few annoying Zdoom features thrown in, including "stealth" monsters. The vaunted non-linearity is of a trivial type, and not sufficient to make the map behave play significantly differently depending on what decisions the player makes.

4 stars, would b 5 if the last 2 enemies were a bigger threat than just imps, otherwise cacos, archie, imps, knights, barons, mancubus all make this a great wad

Invisible demons sucks, gameplay barely OK, detail just like plain id's maps but with ZDooM features on it. 3/5 -playerlin

I doubt it's "barely average" given the comment the author has received on his YouTube channel.

I really like the appearance of this map. Most maps are either horribly lackluster, or a clusterfuck of textures (what some call "detail"). The one gripe I had is that it's really easy to get lost and keep looping around the same areas, however I like the fact that you have to explore, so it's not a bad thing entirely. It's a slim 4 for me. I'd like to work with the author, I'm a fan of 'classic style' mapping.

      I had raised my eyebrows when I read everything in the text file, but I really enjoyed this! It's totally adorable, all the assets were obviously hand-made with love, and the puppy is wonderful :) Just wish it was longer! I hope you do some more with this, it's definitely a welcome break. Maybe add some menu assets to really sell the idea.

      Nice details and visuals. Maybe bitt claustrophobic but that's not weakness at all and i kinda like it. Gameplay is what ruining the map. For six months of work the gameplay feel very unbalanced and bad. Lot of stronger enemies appear on a place where you can't move properly.

      The visuals of the map is rich in details, but they look somewhat erratic and do not form a solid style. Although, some of the author's decisions looks new for me. If you be careful enough, then this map may well bring positive impressions of the gameplay. Lock a player in a narrow space with strong opponents is controversial idea, but an experienced player can get good trial from fights by finding a winning strategy. In general, the map does not leave the desire to go through it again. I recommend this map for seekers of hard and challengind gameplay.

      Just a cool ZDoom map with well balanced gameplay. I was run through it with pleasure.

      I must say that although it is a wad of terry, I would like to find a serious one like this, new enemies very interesting and original just for their attacks, bosses that have inspired me (and you can see it in my creations) and it is really amazing like this wad despite having their terry traps is entertaining and much better than many wads of 32 levels, if you want to have something interesting to play and different as long as you ignore the story is fun filled with very good boss fights, excellent music, this is an option although if you can not stand the terry traps just do not try it   5/5 to be a joke wad   Gaia74
