About This File

A collection of twelve classic-style maps by Phobosdeimos1, originally designed for "Doom the Way Id Did."

These maps, while perhaps not "id-like" in the strictest sense, are wildly creative and fun to boot. A must-play for those with a classic Doom itch to scratch.

Xaser says: In light of Phobosdeimos1's passing in 2012, I thought it fitting to release one of his final gifts to the community as a standalone pack. He showed great enthusiasm for the project and was one of the most prolific mappers, with possibly more submissions than anyone else. While I'm an ill-fitting messenger to pass on his legacy, these maps absolutely deserve a release. R.I.P, good sir, until next life.

Pretty average map set. Difficulty is easy even when you increase monster speed or damage. Visuals quality is more on the side of worse Doom 2 maps. Good layout, but boring in overall.

I too didn't think it was that good, mostly due to the haphazardness of thing placement. very reminiscent of 90's maps, though.

Being an ol'-school fan, I was totally disappointed. These maps have simple and about random layout, infinitely repeating scenes, completely unmatching textures making it look very ugly, random monster & ammo placement, and gameplay completely missing leitmotivs. This all resulted in a set of levels which look uninteresting, having gameplay not giving any fun. Sorry, but that's what it is. And no, thankfully this is not even remotely DooM the way ID intended... Overall: below amateurish. /nofi, obviously

      Another in the Titan series. One of the simplest if you calmly take the time to find the hidden weapons. Moderately long but entertaining. Abstract.

      It took me several tries to unwrap the map but I really enjoyed it. J Flynn still amazes me. A tricky great map.

      This map is beautiful to look at and amazing to play. It reminds me of a something I'd see from a map in the late 90s and I love it.

      I'm breaking up with Valiant to start my new love with Hellbound. Best DOOM mapset that has been made. I have replayed it more than once with Brutal DOOM Platinum and Final Doomer(Hellboundguy class) and I still can't get tired of it. Cities, hellish maps, tech bases, I just love it. I also really like the combination of E2M1, E2M2 and E2M3 in Map19. Amazing stuff right there, I strongly recommend this

      I forgot to review it when I first finished it, but I played it again with final doomer so I think it's time.   Ancient aliens is beautiful, and it plays as well as it looks.  SkillSaw gives some of his best maps in his career, only matched by his heartland performance.  But the heavy lifting is really done by the presentation, stewboys midis always fit, and the fact the soundtrack is bespoke is incredible.  I personally enjoy all of the maps, only the secret maps have any issues fitting in, and secret maps are allowed to not be great.  My only issue with the wad are the inconsistent 3rd episode, and ironically it's skillsaw's work in that episode that is probably the worst (So good, but not as good as the earlier work in the wad) as the rest of the team turns in great work.
