About This File

This is the first Pwad-file I've build so far and it took me quite a while to finish it, but that may sound familiar to you. It's totally designed for single player mode for that's what most of the common DOOM-addicts are sleuthing for. There isn't a story or other useless introduction to be told here except for the fact that there are a lot of different switches involved, so the environment will change continously. As far as I know there's a new, and certainly frustrating, surprise in this level that I so far haven't seen in any PWAD-file. (and if it's already an old trick: have you managed to work through all the levels available right now?) Wait till you have found the yellow key and hurry with this newly acquired gadget to the right door. Because of the new role of the keys in this level it was worth naming it that way.

New level build from scratch

Editors Used

At first I tried to construct this WAD with 'ade2', the first WAD-builder I got involved with, but this program however turned to be real buggy when the PWAD-file exceeded an amouth of only 10 KB. (maybe due to the fact that my computer (486DX2 4MB) still needs to be upgraded) With 'WinDEU' it was possible to finish it without mentionable problems.

Bugs

none as far as I know now

This map visually is not bad for 95. Short and crampy AF. Ammo is hardly enough, better don't waste it. Best thing is how author trolls the player, cheap trick but I like it. 3+/5*

Small, cramped, but quick and snappy. A lot of the level consists of corridors and corridor fights, but they are short corridors and broken up with interesting rooms with a touch of detail. It helps that the level is short and quickly paced. There are two porn versions of this, one by the same author and another stolen one. The map itself is not amazing, nor is it strenuous or difficult - it's just a solid fun little old level, that's ok for the few minutes it takes to play. -3.5/5

Nice vanilla map. It is short and the texture alignment isn't perfect, but for the most part it looks decent and plays well.

Not enough ammo for my taste. I like blasting.

      This is okay for a 1995 Doom 2 mapset. The action and the environments vary between humdrum and pretty engaging. It's not particularly difficult, even on UV, if played in continuous (weapon carryover) format, as it was apparently designed to be.   Nonetheless it could have been a tougher challenge but for an over-provision of health and armour at certain points (a recurring element in wads of this era), and also some bizarre game mechanics - for instance a Spider Mastermind decided to walk under a crushing ceiling in level 3, just when it had me in a bit of trouble. Then a Cyberdemon, which was occupying a threatening position at the beginning of level 5, suddenly disappeared and its remains later turned up in another part of the map: I can only assume it was telefragged or something.   Still, this is a great improvement on this author's earlier ASDOOM.WAD for Doom 1, that's for sure.

      This was a fun mapset though it gets more challenging later on. Map 08 in particular is a mad scramble to the top while the IoS rains spawned Hell down on you. I wasn't a fan of the monster sprite changes but they were thankfully just visual changes, not behavior changes.   The bonus map can get fucked though. Hate that last room encounter. Contending with two arch-viles, a wall of revenants, a mass of cacos AND pain elementals, AND two cyberdemons while trying to move around and dodge all of that was impossible and bullshit for me.   Thankfully the bonus map is just that - a bonus. I would have dreaded encountering this in the normal roster. I'll definitely come back and play through this in the future.

      Whats with all the low scores? Anyway,this is a map with plenty of good and interesting visuals,while slightly similar to other cool wads such as swim with the whales,plasmaplant but there is still a unique-ness of its own ,and its gameplay fit for anyone who likes difficult maps. If you dont like slaughter tho,stay away.

      This was a pretty fun set of levels to blast through. It's not too challenging despite the monster count found in most levels (if I recall right most of them had at least over 200) though there are a few encounters that make for some tricky gameplay. Still worth a download and worth a shot. I know I'll be coming back to this in the future.

      Cool and highly distinct visual style, focusing on the orange and gothic hell aesthetic. I wasn't a fan of a few of the maps here, but levels 06 and 07 were excellent. 3/5
