About This File

A collection of seven maps scrapped from Valiant early in it's development that have been collecting dust on my hard drive for close to four years.

I've been asked to share them numerous times. Here they are. Don't expect much (I threw them out, after all)!

This wad makes extensive use of DeHackEd, so please play this only with ZDoom, Zandronum, Eternity, or Prboom-plus 2.5.1.4 or higher (complevel 11).

Gameplay mods probably won't work.

See the Valiant text file for full credits.

these are scrapped maps, but are far better than a lot of other scrapped maps given where this came from. still, they don't match up with Valiant's maps anyways, which is why they got scrapped. notable is MAP04, which has an area similar to MAP15 of Valiant as well as an exit looking like the secret exit.

Nice leftover levels that are pretty much as good as valiant. Action-packed stuff.

The level design was pretty nice - top notch stuff from Skillsaw as always - but I wasn't a fan of the DeHacked stuff. Granted, I knew what I was getting into from the original Valiant in terms of DeHacked work when I played this. Still, not bad.

Seven good, challenging maps that could just as easily have been included in Valiant.

      while it does a good job replicating episode 1 aesthetically, the levels are riddled with questionable design choices. doors that dont need to be there, a million secrets often crammed onto the back end of a level resulting in useless items unless youre not pistol starting, and just a bit too easy. for an author who claims his work is top notch and the best of the best, you shot your arrow pretty far from the bullseye my friend.

      Another one I haven't played for years and years and just revisited: Fava Beans is a solid E1 replacement and a good one if you want a chilled out, mostly really easy WAD. The level design is a cut above considering the historical context of this set, and it nails the E1 feel. Heavier monsters are introduced much earlier, but the difficulty rarely gets above casual.   E1M8 is anticlimactic and feels like a letdown after the consistency of the preceding maps, but aside from that I recommend it for an easygoing old school Doom fix. That said, it could have been harder in places. There have been better E1 replacements since, but Fava Beans is still worth a look.   Best: E1M4, E1M5, E1M7

      Not that crazy as you can think from the title, it's a interesting map with some cool design choices and some nice small puzzles as well. Fun to play and run swell.
