Very chaotic layout. I don't think you need any of the keys to beat the map. Visuals are good. Keeping in mind that this is a 1994 map, this is historically interesting, but as a standalone level it's rather weak. Fights are easy too.

Tech-style map from May 1994, so from the early DooM mapping times. Layout is based on rectangular rooms & small corridors with windows, and almost flat. Texture use, decoration & ambiance are nowadays considered simplistic but for that time not bad; variation in style & gameplay is good. Has lots of texture misalignments and other small problems, but in 1994 these weren't considered as that bad as nowadays. Rated as early 1994 map: 3* because at that time playing this small adventure obviously gave fun.

Ooh, an undiscovered level from 1994, have not had enough of those in the last year. Truly random level design even for its time; on the first play, I accidentally activated the exit after killing 1/5 of the enemies and finding none of the keys. Later I find out that the yellow key opens a door that does nothing, and the red key gives access to a blue key, with no blue door in the level. There are also two plasma guns close to each other to make the grueling task of shooting former humans and imps easier.

Cool map, was a bit disorganized but I liked that and I had fun playing through it.

      Thanks to a post by Maes, I found out about this wad. The Maniac MIDI is catchy and fun, and the level itself is still an enjoyable romp today. The idea that you're under the sea is a creative touch.

      If this was the 2001 year I would rate this 5/5. But in 2022 this wad is nothing but a lame retro.   I got the feeling that this wad was trying to showcase the advanced Zdoom capabilities rather than trying to create a good game play, and even with the advanced features the design still feels flat!   HMP or lower players will probably enjoy this as it is a below average difficulty with plenty of ammo/items.   I wanted to rate this 2.5/5 stars, but since half star cannot be selected I rated it 3 stars. We really need to be able to select half a star in rating.

      I love SkillSaw's work and this is a magnificent wad, but I am writing this review to mark it for folks like me, who would love the level design, but wouldn't connect with the gameplay. Which is fine, no wad is made for every player.   What didn't work for me in this megawad - as far as I checked it out, playing several levels from different packs - was gameplay geared towards maneuverability and making it without strong weapons and much ammo.   To me Doom is a shooter. When faced with a lot of strong enemies, I would like to be able to get them down with a double shotgun or a rocket launcher. These levels are more about running around quickly with a gun, a berserk pack and a shotgun with only a few shells. In he middle of the level you typically get a chaingun.   And that just turns the game into a platformer for me, which is fine, just not my kind of gameplay.   The design and music are top notch. Even the menu is eye candy. I wanted to adore this project, but I just cannot connect with it.   I will, however, keep it on my hard drive and return to it from time to time. Will update this review if I ever get it.
