About This File

10 maps made during the twelfth Abyssal Speedmapping Session in the space of two hours, with 15 minutes for music and texture selection and 15 minutes for bugfixing. Each mapper had 3 themes to choose from:

- Predominantly liquid flats - FIREBLU exit with a metric ton of Arch-Viles - Circular architecture(Jimmy's pick!)

I think mostly everyone used the Alfonzo Treatment this time around. 0_o

Quite interesting maps with a unique aesthetic and an attractive design in most levels. 10 maps, 4 more than the previous session and with a particularly nice theme but somewhat explosive and terrible for the end. The gameplay is usually quite fast and explosive, but manageable, until of course, the ending, which I feel ruins the main essence and turns this into a joke. But it's ASS, these maps are usually jokes (some bad or some good) even so I think it's better than the previous session and has a few quite memorable scenes. Xaser and Darsycho create some pretty interesting maps with an appreciable magnitude that I think it's worth trying if you don't want to play the full session. There are certain maps that have a rather cryptic progress and I'm not even sure if they can be completed without some form of cheating (MAP02 and MAP04) but still, I had fun. I would've probably give this map 3 stars if it wasn't for the horrible arch-vile traps at the end of each map.

Xaser is just great at creating this kinds of levels.

FOA guys, have all the fun in the world creating this. Having said that, it looks like you were all focussed on special texture use, decoration and heavy monster placement, but forgot to think and/or did not have enough time for thinking about the gameplay. Which is IMHO overall plain awful. 1* because I prefer gameplay far above ambiance, and consider limited build time as no excuse for poor quality. But again: have fun.

      Blue broken rooms and ugly texturing, lots of HOMs, lots of monsters and no way to resemble any house of sort. Or to tribute The big Lebowsky movie at all. A very bad old style jokewad map, unfunny at all.

      A medium sized map sets in a sort of church surrounded by burning men, graveyards and other type of stuff around. The level is simple but fun to play, both in SP and DM. Same simplicity reflects in the detailing work and fell.

      A wooden and metal structure that also have some prisons, hidden locked doors as normal textures and everything here is brown, very brown. Overall a fun map with a fun gameplay and a spooky atmosphere, especially thanks to the music. Cool stuff.

      A pretty intricate and fun to explore map sets in a semi-realistic castle with lots of secret passages, doomcute "realistic" furniture that even include a library made out of sector art stuff. The fact that this is a Retextured Doom map is shown greatly here. Pretty neat map, the only real breaker is that this map have a unused red skull key and other keys for the locked doors (blue and yellow keys)? At least i didn't find them. I had to noclip trough them for complete the map. If it could not be for this bug, it will be a great map. But overall, is pretty good. The baroque music is fabulous. Make me think of women in dress and huge wigs dancing in the marble throne room! Or demons in this case.

      An old mid-1990s map, based around a large main arena which contains some interesting structures. For a while it's tough going, and you may die a handful of times (as I did), before getting the hang of the layout and formulating a strategy. Once you get the yellow key though, and access to the BFG, it should be game over for the baddies.   Your calculations can be thrown off track however if the Archvile decides to emerge from the movie theatre at an early stage, and take a stroll out in the open. Another thing to watch for is the Cyberdemon entering the said building while you're in one of the auditoriums, and blocking your escape. I experienced both of these events, with fatal consequences...
