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

      Another in the Titan series. One of the simplest if you calmly take the time to find the hidden weapons. Moderately long but entertaining. Abstract.

      It took me several tries to unwrap the map but I really enjoyed it. J Flynn still amazes me. A tricky great map.

      This map is beautiful to look at and amazing to play. It reminds me of a something I'd see from a map in the late 90s and I love it.

      I'm breaking up with Valiant to start my new love with Hellbound. Best DOOM mapset that has been made. I have replayed it more than once with Brutal DOOM Platinum and Final Doomer(Hellboundguy class) and I still can't get tired of it. Cities, hellish maps, tech bases, I just love it. I also really like the combination of E2M1, E2M2 and E2M3 in Map19. Amazing stuff right there, I strongly recommend this

      I forgot to review it when I first finished it, but I played it again with final doomer so I think it's time.   Ancient aliens is beautiful, and it plays as well as it looks.  SkillSaw gives some of his best maps in his career, only matched by his heartland performance.  But the heavy lifting is really done by the presentation, stewboys midis always fit, and the fact the soundtrack is bespoke is incredible.  I personally enjoy all of the maps, only the secret maps have any issues fitting in, and secret maps are allowed to not be great.  My only issue with the wad are the inconsistent 3rd episode, and ironically it's skillsaw's work in that episode that is probably the worst (So good, but not as good as the earlier work in the wad) as the rest of the team turns in great work.
