Absolutely brilliant, until the final battle.
Would've been 5/5 if it weren't for the moving doortraks, Cyberdumbass battle and misaligned flats. That big outside area with the pond looked really beautiful.

The moving platforms somehow didn't irritate me too much, the level is that fantastic.

 

edit:

Also the textfile has some funny moments, like complaining about a certain new OS released in 1995. Little did the author know what was to come.

Masterful monster placement will put you in a lot of unique uncomfortable situations and make you think a little. That's quite a feat for a map from 1995. The progression has some puzzles and might frustrate you with all the unmarked teleporters though.

no, just no. Unmarked teleports at every turn. CLEVAR!!1! No. Waste of a download.

Played @ UV. Typical 1995 pwad with all its flaws: poor map layout, simple texture use, overly dark areas, poor monster placement, f.e. groups of same type of monsters. Gameplay is definitely not what one may expect in 2014, thus after two decades experience in level building. Overall: 2/5 for the efford.

This is dated 1995. It's nothing too special, goes through a variety of themes, techbases, slime pits, you know the drill. There are lots of, big surprise, bridges! This might be fun for an OS player, but there's really not much of substance here.

      Quite a decent and apparently well regarded early Doom map. Almost 300 enemies on UV, but not too difficult by today's standards. Visually okay, though a bit spartan with plenty of plain white walls etc. There's also a Doom 2 conversion of this (Redrum2.wad) which can be found on some of those 94/95 CD compilations, but it's somewhat disappointing - no revenants, mancubuses or archviles, even on UV difficulty.

      An old partial conversion that uses dehacked for some nifty effects. You can leave shotgunners in a sorta slumped state, watch a building get demolished, and use a mancubus's arm as a weapon among other things. Goof++; Tickles my soft spot.

      Some missing textures, weird maze. Not sure if author tried to make multilevel illusion or not but anyway he screw up. 2.5/5*

      Map is made correct, but short, bland, plain, nothing more than some rooms filled with monsters opened one after another.

      Impressive features for 95 wad, but it is made by good engineer but no artist. Ladders, map with indicators which switch left to find, great concepts. But ladders are glitchy (in GZDoom) player and monsters sometimes getting stuck in floor. It's a shame that gameplay is bad. Starts in the room filled with mostly hitscanners (infighting gets almost 40 of them), vaults filled with ammo. Visuals: 2/5 Gameplay: 2/5 Cool stuffs: 4/5
