About This File

Acutally this is my second map, as the first one has been never released, becuasue I've lost it and, well, it was made in 1996 by means of DEU 2.0. Besides, as you can allegedly imagine, it was quite rudimentary - I was 14 years old then. So why would I return to editing Doom levels ? Primarily I've come back to playing Doom due to the Brutal Doom engine, which is truly magnificent (putting all the gore aside). Basically I've never played such a wonderful and action-packed mod before. EVER. Then I figured out, that I could make an attempt at creating a brand new level with a, comparing to DEU, comprehensive tool - Doom Builder. It was just a matter of being reminded of the 20th DOOM 2 anniversary and reading "Masters of Doom" and being inspired by John Romero in particular. Afterwards you can see the whole picture - inspiration for creativity galore. So all my credits and warmest thanks go to John Romero and I would like to dedicate this level to him. Otherwise this level would never have been created.

Straight forward level with basic visuals. Gameplay is on an okay level. Not bad, but nothing beyond that. Good job, nevertheless.

Good for a first map, some minor issues with texture alignment and a door not working after being used once and some other bugs like monsters caught, all this could be removed with a keener eye on testing. I was amazed you could cram so many things to kill into such a short map, I had fun with it overall, nice work, hope you make more. I'd say 3.5 but I'll round it up to 4.

This feels like an really nice 1995 map. It plays excellently without Brutal Doom, too. I would say don't change your style, since I personally love 90's-style maps, but that would be selfish. Work on your texturing and detail, and maybe widen a few halls here and there - The layout is fine as it is though, this is a good map.

      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.
