An adventure across 6 highly atmospheric, well-designed, & interconnected maps. You'll visit each branch of the hub many times, each time unveiling a large new section to explore. The puzzles/progression are well-designed, and I never once got stuck/lost. Typically soon after receiving an item, you unlock a shortcut to where you need to use it, which is great design. The architecture is detailed and impressive, and is aided by some new textures from Hexen 2 (underrated game by the way). Also it's vanilla-compatible (a bit rare for modern Hexen hubs), which is a boon for users of Chocolate Hexen. Just all around excellent.

Quality Hexen wad. Loved the visuals. Even got lost in it for hours just like in the iwad. 5/5

An excellent set of "classic"-themed hexen maps. Despite the creator's apparent mixed feelings(?), the gameplay, visuals and atmosphere are all very high quality, and it's just fun to play. Some new music and textures has been used (all from Hexen 2, I think?) but used sensibly alongside the vanilla resources. Getting to the portal at the end of MAP01 actually reminded me how exciting it was to find portals when I first played Hexen, as a tiny child. I just wish there was more.

Only two major "flaws". 1: it's "just" one hub. 2: we'll have to wait another year or two till someone creates another piece of new content for Hexen.

New heXen wad??? Now that's rare! And well designed and finishable! Most heXen wads I download are uncompleted. This borrows textures from heXen II as well. 4 stars simply for being for heXen, +1 for being awesome!

Excellent, up there with LilWhiteMouse's Wolfen as one of the best wads for Hexen. 100% must-play if you're a fan of this game.

Good hub, but I found a bug, you can get the blue emerald by jumping on the statues, and finish it very soon.

Excellent, action packed Hexen WAD. The final boss fight can bug out if you kill all bosses with a single blow.

      I had raised my eyebrows when I read everything in the text file, but I really enjoyed this! It's totally adorable, all the assets were obviously hand-made with love, and the puppy is wonderful :) Just wish it was longer! I hope you do some more with this, it's definitely a welcome break. Maybe add some menu assets to really sell the idea.

      Nice details and visuals. Maybe bitt claustrophobic but that's not weakness at all and i kinda like it. Gameplay is what ruining the map. For six months of work the gameplay feel very unbalanced and bad. Lot of stronger enemies appear on a place where you can't move properly.

      The visuals of the map is rich in details, but they look somewhat erratic and do not form a solid style. Although, some of the author's decisions looks new for me. If you be careful enough, then this map may well bring positive impressions of the gameplay. Lock a player in a narrow space with strong opponents is controversial idea, but an experienced player can get good trial from fights by finding a winning strategy. In general, the map does not leave the desire to go through it again. I recommend this map for seekers of hard and challengind gameplay.

      Just a cool ZDoom map with well balanced gameplay. I was run through it with pleasure.

      I must say that although it is a wad of terry, I would like to find a serious one like this, new enemies very interesting and original just for their attacks, bosses that have inspired me (and you can see it in my creations) and it is really amazing like this wad despite having their terry traps is entertaining and much better than many wads of 32 levels, if you want to have something interesting to play and different as long as you ignore the story is fun filled with very good boss fights, excellent music, this is an option although if you can not stand the terry traps just do not try it   5/5 to be a joke wad   Gaia74
