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.

Extremely detailed map that doesn't offer much. Visuals are cluttered, and layout is rectangular and consists of rooms connected with corridors. There are some multiplayer issues that could've been avoided. Fights consist of monster invasions in tiny rooms. Grabbing a chaingun gives you hilariously harsh punishment. Author definitely has technical knowledge, but needs to improve on other aspects.

Hypertek was meh at the start, but by the end of 30 minutes of a tight maze, I left my sanity long behind. There's little room to strafe. Its a labyrinth of switches and doors. Doors that open with switches, doors that don't... Big enemies in little spaces. Enemy traps that teleport in from in front to distract you and behind to sandwich you. Visuals are a mish mash of tech vomit that puts in a lot of detail for little effect.

It's not bad design-wise but the gameplay really lets it down. Lots of increasingly strong monsters appear in a small space with little movement. Doesn't really work.

Very mixed bag. Author shows technical skills, and he knows how to decorate too. ATOH the map layout is too rectangular and repetitive, and the ambiance lacks originality. Gameplay suffers from the boring switchhunt. Much worse is that, due to the awfully repeatably thus predictable monster placement / popups, gameplay @ UV is maybe hard but not attractive. Not at all... IOW: playing it sadly did not give fun. Overall: 2* as encouragement, and author might seriously consider using beta testers.

Looks competent but suffers from far too much "hit a switch, then another switch, then other switch which locks you in a small room with 20 monsters" gameplay.

      well, the concept is good  BUT...   WHAT THE FUCK EVEN IS THIS??

      Definitely shows its age. It was a real grind to play through, mostly due to the levels being boring, but also from a remarkable over-reliance on hitscan, especially shotgunners. For some reason. The third episode does indeed pick up much of the slack, but with the really fun levels being shining exceptions rather than rule for two thirds of the WAD it still left me annoyed and exasperated in the end. The maps look fine most of the time and the music is good to really good, which is something to hold on to. I would still advice my past self to skip most of this one.

      There's not too much for me to say about this one. While it isn't exactly my jam 100% of the time, I'm struggling to see how any creative endeavor could entertain me so thoroughly, throughout all the 32 parts of it. Ancient Aliens is charming, somewhat challenging, mysterious, well-paced... I could iterate over plenty of different variations of lavish praise, but I guess that in and of itself describes my feelings: AA is remarkably well-rounded. A DOOM blockbuster - and I use that description as an honest compliment rather than the pejorative it's sometimes thought of. One for the ages, and it'll be one of the WADs to which many of my future experience will be compared.

      On second thought, this wad is kinda mid if you ask me. After playing through all of it on pistol-start I wasn't really blown away by it. The midi pack that was made for this in 2020 was very nice if you ask me, but why this wad ever deserves a midi pack when it's so bland is what makes me scratch my head. Idk man, I didn't like this one as much as others do :/.

      This reads as an early example of arcade-style mapping.   Areas are defined largely by color combinations, with no real overarching theme to the map: there are silver techbase rooms, brick-like Earth rooms, red hellish rooms, without much in the way of detailing or setting-building -- all centralized around a square hub room with key doors, which repopulates with monsters each time you find a key. It's on the simpler side visually, but still a very clear step above "monotextured square rooms"-type design, with some solid architecture, shapes, and texture combos here and there, and even a clever crushing UFO-like "ring" at one point.    The gameplay concepts are very straightforward, with one exception being a room that has you platforming over damaging floor while closets of lost souls and cacodemons open up. Instead, the bulk of the fighting is more often dished out as blocks of monsters often revealed in closets -- blocks at a density far below what you'd consider slaughter. Some of the potential fun involves herding monsters towards barrels; once I waited several seconds for chaingunners to walk halfway across the room, right next to a clump of barrels I could blow them all up with. The ending fight is designed for you to pour rockets into two static cybs while circling, and I skipped that one.    Completed in a bit under 10 minutes.
