The title says it all, "Maps by my 6 year old son" is an easy, fun, basic romp with BFGs, clusters of big enemies and no need to kill any of them. The 5 maps made by a 6 year old are easy and basic, but playable. There is a working lift, a crusher ceiling, working doors with door tracks, keys, transporters and exit tiles. Its several of the building blocks that should make up every Doom level.

 

For the most part, the geometry is square and flat, with no pillars, stairs or detailed textures. While the simplicity alone might be bad, there are more complex "typical" levels that are less fun and more frustrating. This pack of 5 levels is short and sweet at a mere 5 - 10 minutes but worth it just to see the simplest things stand out. Suddenly having a lift to a blue key is a monument.

 

Its almost a level of 1994 fan creation, but without the frustration or cluster phobic hallways. Everything is broad and easy to dodge. Whether it was made by a child or not, its just unconventional because its so below the bar of a typical level and that adds to the novelty and charm.

Not much to say here. All maps can be cleared without even firing a bullet. Since these were made by a 6 year old, I won't too harsh.

Having played this, I think they are remarkable for a 6 year old. Kudos to you little one. You've made us proud!

It has that nifty 1994 shovelware vibe. First time I've seen a horde of cyberdemons too. But last map crashes at load time, so only 4/5.

I've seen much, much worse. Still, you should probably leave map-making to professionals, preferably those who have reached puberty and have some degree of computer expertise.

the first map is hard stuff (w/o bfg9k use), but cool. Like the trap, I was like, "Should I skip this?". Good for starters. ~2/5

I am giving this wad 5 stars because for starters,it was made by a 6 year old.That alone shows that the young man is intelligent.The maps are okay,but as he gets older,of course he'll get better.While I'm not a mapper myself,I have played enough wads to know what's good an what's not.Keep up the good work young man.Also,the best of luck to you.You deserve it!

At face values, these maps are pretty poor with the quality decreasing as you proceed. The maps are pretty flat and ugly but the gameplay is pretty nice. This is a real achievement for someone so young. 3 stars

Well I give it a 4-star as a constructive criticism, since it is astonishing how a 6-year old can make better maps than anyone who released wads like WOW or the Gamarra series, just to mention any. The remaining one star is the goal to fulfil in your future works, Dylan! :)

Considering this was made by a 6 year old kid, this is actually pretty damn good. I was especially fond of the surprise baron and cyberdemon at the start of map 3. As a fellow mapper, I think you're gonna do great out there kiddo.

I'm not sure why you uploaded this. All the maps are obviously awful; yes a 6 year old made them, but that doesn't excuse the matter of fact.

it's unplayable, and it's just boxes without ideas he should learn about the builder before making maps

This WAD is not good - obviously - but idc how old the author is. Nonetheless, still one star because if you can already map at 6 then you're gonna do great ;)

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.
