I thought this was a pretty good map TBH.

It's pretty cool, considering the challenge of custom monsters. It's like attacking a facility to shut it down. I am sure that the graphics are cool too. Custom stuff. I'm sure that if there was a list of maps/quality, it would stand the test of time. Other than that a okay map. ~2/5

As the guy who produced this, I want to defend Tim against corporate whoredome. After we did the deal with id, we asked them if they had any extra maps we could use. They didn't, but saidthat this kid named Tim Willits was making really good levels. So, he sold us one of his maps and that was his only involvement. My crew put everything else together, textures, characters, and integrating the whole thing. Tim didn't have any role beyond the level itself.

Wow, was Tim Willits a corporate whore or what? I guess his support for always-on DRM should've come as no surprise. Anyway, it's a thousand times more fun and detailed than Chex Quest and other shills, especially if it's from the early '90s (no date listed?). The robot-rapist "come here, baby" voice creeped me out, though. 3.5/5

This version of Kick Attack! (design by Tim Willits) works with Doom II. The layout and encounters aren't changed at all, but the Kick!-ified textures are a bit different (and a bit less of an eyesore, IMO). All three keys, decent but easily-handled encounters, and some nice perks for explorers. An interesting curio.

The different graphics for the monsters and items was wicked.

As-is an old DooM level + some changed sprites & sounds. 1) the Duke Nukem-alike sprites look and feel a bit outdated and not at the right place, 2) the monster sounds get quite boring soon, because they're too dominant, and 3) imho the original level played better with the original DooM monsters. So again imho this is an experiment with a not-so-good result. 2/5 for the effort - 1 because DMA pushed their own map with 5* (see ^2) = 1/5.

      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.

      Ok not going to lie, but I thought this shitpost megawad was made last year and NOT from February of 1998 which also technically predates the original Mockery wad by a few months 👀!?

      The first truly mature map of yakfak's. The puzzly, "inner logic" map mechanisms and scavenger, dungeon rat gameplay of their previous levels Meep Keep & Hexasketch returns, but whereas those can feel clunky and barebone at points despite the strong authorial voice, here it is fully fleshed out: the setting is evocative, the construction shows the strong command of shapes that defines yakfak's later works, the item placement and layout bends and loops in complicated and surprising ways, the level's moment-to-moment gameplay is filled with a sense of discovery and wonder.   Job has a strong hook in its text file, but what players might not realize is that they must really hang on to every word in its description to even be aware of the level's main concept. In Never_Again's in-depth review for /newsuff (which I highly recommend for details or if you are feeling stuck), he mentions being locked out if you took the "easy" route out, but I feel that's incomplete, as the real reason hinges on the player being conscious of what they are doing in a representationalist sense. In other words, to be able to reach your dream, you shouldn't just interact and go everywhere at random, but try to think about what you are doing in the context of the game's world. The solution will be clear if you square it with what yakfak hints at. There are complications: the in-game hint system of crosses and arrows are counter-intuitive, and exploration will eventually lead you to the combat zone, which itself is a puzzle unravel as supplies require routing and withholding combat through treacherous enemy placement, with only a berserked fist as defense (HMP or below is strongly recommended). In my own experience, it was fun but exhausting to make it through to the AV-guarded yellow key and slowly solve the piece, but I got massively demoralized when I read Never_Again's review that I had already locked myself out of the second half of the map. It was only when I was showcasing the Doomcute in this map to someone else that the level's inner logic finally clicked, and after some experimentation, which was much smoother thanks to me already being aware of the level's layout and lingering mysteries, I managed to solve it.   The feeling of "lore" behind the level's trials and tribulations is my favorite thing about Job, and I wish it didn't take a review for me to "get it". In terms of intriguing combat, intricate moments, or imaginative layout and visuals, I think zzzv tops themself in (woefully underrated) levels like Spidersilk, Nato, and Northern Powerhouse. Nevertheless, an essential stop for yakfak fans, and a memorable journey for those who look for Doom off the beaten path.
