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.

      I made the mistake of putting this on UV for my first playthrough. Oops. It was insanely brutal and I didn't have a lot of fun with it. However, after checking out the readme, as suggested I went back for another run on HMP. It's impressive to see the huge difference in difficulty and I appreciate the effort in differentiating the various skill level choices. I definitely recommend new players play it on HMP or lower, that way you can really appreciate the excellent architecture and interesting color scheme, as well as that soothing DKC music that makes for a unique vibe. 4/5 for a HMP playthrough. The only thing lacking here is the amount of maps, and that's OK. I'd just love to see more in this style.   Rating when played on UV: 2/5. For extreme masochists only.

      It's a very impressive megawad with a nice themed ancient Egypt atmosphere, with very nice choosing of textures to contribute to that theme, very nice architecture and impressive (and very risky) twist on the story going from ancient Egypt to alien spaceships, without using hi-pitched colors like in Ancient Aliens. Also, very tough megawad, if you're masochist enough, you can play it with Complex Doom and add LCA for more doses of pain.

      It's okay. Quite easy due to the abundance of artifacts, mana, & health. The level design is fine, nothing special. The only truly bad part was the unmarked puzzle bookcases, forcing you to wallhump the entire library as a last resort. Otherwise it's pretty simple stuff, running around finding keys and smashing monsters. The texturing and lighting aren't fantastic but aren't noticeably bad either. The only glaring issue is that many windows just show a wall textured with the sky texture rather than an area with a sky ceiling. Yet there are perfectly normal outdoor areas. Perhaps the author only figured it out skies halfway through development? Anyways, this is worth your time if you want an hour or two of simple Hexen fun.

      It's a nice wad overall, nice map design, textures and monster placement, enjoyed playing on D-Touch (GZDoom1.8) with Dude4th weapon mod.  My only complain would be the secrets, they have very few to no clues about their position.  There was a problem on E3M5 on the secrets around the squared starting room with stairs, the wall closes and let me stuck inside, had to use idclip to get out from those secret rooms.
