About This File

A simple map in-E1M7-style, no scripts or whatsoever, it should rapresent an old style-base like those made by ID Software back in 1993. Hope you'll enjoy it.

Tries so hard to be loved that I feel as though I'm kicking a puppy. All the ingredients of a good map are here but everything is slightly off, like own-brand cereal. Many of the texture choices are in poor taste (wooden computer room, anyone?), lighting is too stark (nonsensical in one room), and then there are the pegged door tracks. Texture alignment has been detrimentally automated (last time I checked monitors don't bend round corners - but this is the future). Also, it's "represent" not "rapresent".

Requires ZDoom: in vanilla\Boom you can't get out of the starting room. It's a E1 style base but I feel like it misses all the key features that made E1 good. What you get is a bunch of semi-cramped rooms connected by doors: no large or just memorable areas, no important centerpieces, no cool outdoor views, no expansive secrets, no interesting optional areas or particularly clever progression. It just isn't really that fun to play through. The E1 texturing is here but the rest of E1 isn't.

Haha, I had to laught a couple of times playing this chaotic wad apparently made by a secrets lover :-). Considered as a map with a big wink: 4/5. Considered seriously, played @ UV: base looks ok but lacks on technical aspects and gameplay (destroyed by the secrets): 2/5. Overall: 3/5 for the efford. @ Claudio: when using DoomBuilder2, use F4 (Map Analysis Mode) to check your map on a regular base. BTW thing 70 (burning barrel) is not in DooM but in DooM2.

      It's large 1995 map. Starting area is looking nice, but later author lost creativity and made mazy corridors. Very challenging because of overuse of chaingunners. It's extremely annoying. Lots of traps, Some clever, some not fair.

      Too linear in my tastes looking back now, will do better with my next projects!

      For 95' map is really ok. A bit "blocky" design, but not bad. Map is rather big, it takes me 40min but i get lost in one place. Some good traps, IMO kinda challanging at the begining, before you get ssg. Overall good classic wad.

      Fun map that captures a nice TNT-ish feel with plenty of weird yet also nice looking rooms, groups of hitscanners and demons to blast through, and a sense of adventure to it. Taking the MAP14 slot, you would see the episode 2 skybox of TNT: Evilution and listen to the track "Cold Subtleness", both creating a nice atmosphere to the map. Worth checking out!

      Doesn't like the layout and monster replacements, I didn't found RL until got the yellow key and found a lot of rockets, the location where RL is confusing me, and it also not fun when you get kicked down from the cliffs by Revenants, Mancubus and Archviles after the way to Blue key door, the way to the teleporter just far enough to kill you if not killed by monsters which kicked you down. Final timed puzzle room just nasty as the cyberdemon and archvile fights in the same place, not sure why make the level so big but can't make the fights with them also on bigger place too?   It's not bad level but I'm sure the frustration level is sky high, and not sure the slopes from ZDooM do anything good to this level too.
