About This File

This project was originally intended to be a megawad with 32 scythe-like maps (basically shorter and sweeter than Speed of Doom was, and less emphasis on the looks, and more on the flow of the maps). Due to commitments with university and other reasons, I've decided to stop mapping for good (not to say I won't map ever again) to allow for more time on other things. I may map again for community projects... in another year or two, who knows?

Worth a play just for the maps that didn't return in Resurge, despite the lack in polish. Otherwise, stick with Resurge, since the returning maps were all greatly improved upon, and the new maps are excellent.

lol there's TWO files on the archives with the name surge. anyways, the some of Resurgence's early days were here and they are slightly easier than before, plus coop wasn't really implemented.

I like this small claustrophobic style of mapping. It is a shame it wasn't finished, but it ended up going towards Resurgence anyway. Some of these maps obviously feel a bit unpolished, but there is something about the cramped action packed style that is addictive and fun. It's worth 4 stars from me. -TRRobin.

While it`s not "legendary" in the true meaning of the word, it really deserves the 5 stars I`m going to give it. Now.

Meh. Design is good but the levels also have bad monster placement. I hate it when I get killed right at the begining of the map because all of the monsters are placed in such a way that they shot me right from the get go no matter what I do, thus making everything a matter of trial and error. 2 stars.

I really really enjoyed that (in easy difficulty, it's a bit tough and I am left with no ammo), pity the project wasn't continued. The transition to secret level from 15 was quite cool (even though there is no secret level ;). 5/5 - Optimus

It's a shame this thing wasn't finished, I wonder what could have been further. Nothing really outstanding in here and these levels are too short and fast, though fun and entertaining in most cases. Scythe's heritage still lives on. 4/5 - Demonologist

Nice maps, but mostly too easy (on UV) to be truly memorable. Deserves somewhere between 3 and 4 stars.

The secret exit on Map15 looks interesting, but since this megawad never completed so just sad. Suicide-exit usages just high and feel annoying but other than that, just fine. 4/5

      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.

      Not a bad DM map, have a nice layout with many height variation but no textures variations unluckily, even the end is set on a random unmarked wall that is not even in the exit room. Gameplay is pretty neat, i like it even playing with the bots.

      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.
