Very good map! Its a hard work here. A lot thinking for so many things... I can emagine. And I just want to say becouse other comments: design is repetative becouse you are still in the cassle! Affcourse he can change a litle bit, but... next level :) Good work man, nice traps, may be ammo is to much, but its ok for less experienced players. 4/5

It uses stupid Doom64 sounds and stupid Doom64 music. Seriously, this music sounds as if someone recorded an unplugged toilet drain. The WAD would've been much better if it used normal Doom audio. Difficulty is way too high. We played this in coop with double-ammo and still didn't have enough! Some map are partially ripped from Doom 1. Only visuals are done properly and are fairly decent.

32mb for 8 levels, Christ. This will appeal to anyone who liked PSX Doom, or anyone who ever wanted to see the original Doom maps re-imagined as their worst nightmare. Unfortunately the gameplay balance is off - even if you bring your own ammo it's easy to run out and the new monsters are placed with extreme nastiness - you've been warned. Map design is superlative, they are all absolutely gorgeous, and The Solution managed the impossible feat: he turned Unholy Cathedral into an exciting, interesting map!

If I could describe this WAD in one word I'd say soulless. All maps look like they were made by robot and not a human being. Too much symmetry and design while being quite consistent (but not without flaws) is too repetative and every map looks the same. Difficulty is pretty low and if there were no DECORATE enemies it would be too easy for me (and I'm a pretty bad player). It's a shame because there was obviously a lot of work put into this WAD.

Agree mostly with ^. I like most of the ambiance, but the layout is often boring symmetrical, and the gameplay somehow didn't got me on my toes. Overall: playing it was a soon-to-forget one time experience, so 3/5. Pity of the work. @ Author: next release please include only one single wad instead of 304 files in 8 directories. Thank you.

      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
