About This File

A small map created using only textures from Noir texture pack. It's quite dark, scary and pretty difficult. It was sort of inspired by Lab X-18 from Stalker and has quite a few design aspects borrowed from it.

Don't forget, you need Noir pack to play it. You can download it from R667: http://realm667.com/index.php/en/component/docman/?task=doc_download&gid=951&Itemid=

The only map I've ever released on idgames myself (back when I was "ChekaAgent"), out of 6 I ever finished, and unfortunately, probably the weakest one.

It's garbage. Not 1994 tier, but not much better. The idea was good on paper... well, not maybe good, but sorta cool: remake Lab X-18 level from STALKER, BUT using only textures from NOIRPACK. Well, the idea... didn't work out well. It could've been done well by someone who has Torm-level detailing skills, but not by me. The map ended up being a set of bland featureless literally all-grey corridors.

If you want to see a poor attempt at remaking a level from a modern in game in Doom, or a level made in entirely out of Noirpack textures, this is it.

The music is bad as well. I mean, it fits, and is meant to be creepy, but it's also bad, repetitive and boring.

I'm writing this review just because I want to shit on something, and the best place to start is your own work! Still, I'm giving this map 2 stars instead of 1 because I put some effort into it and back then I actually finished and released maps, unlike NOW. -_-

PS: I made a stupid typo in the text file when I submitted this wad, "sacry" instead of "scary". I still remember it after almost 5 years...

A weak map - flat surfaces coupled with strangely steep staircases. Rectangular room design with paper-thin walls. Shooting is mostly straight-forward and difficulty is low. Monochrome colors and really shitty music choice. At least the layout is more or less non-confusing.

Maybe it would have been better as a shorter map, because the dark gray textures and monotonous music/noises turn dull after a while. But it's a good map, I liked it. Why the HOM at the end?

      Had a blast playing through this 2001 classic on UV with saves although the last 2 maps were such a ball buster I wasn't sure if I was able to complete this wad but heavy save scumming prevailed 😅. Also I personal think Map 10 is the best Archvile only map I've ever played to where I think its better than both Plutonia 1 & 2 😈

      A low-detail tunnel dungeon with tricks and traps, probably typical of dungeon crawlers. The execution falls rather flat, with too little detail and trial-and-error situations. Gameplay ends early, you don't need to go everywhere.

      It's a cute first mapset by FractalXX, a mapper mostly known to be the project leader of Gridlock 64 and some other maps for other projects. The wad is strongly reminiscent of 90s mapsets and have quite good attention to detail, as well of lots of "bright colors"  in the textures usage that is rare to see in Doom maps. All maps are pretty short (the one that take me most of the time it was 10 minutes of play) and this mapset can be finished in a half hour. Best map in the pack is MAP09, but overall  a ok episode for pass the time.

      Didn't impress me much. The maps are short and mostly simple, you start and you finish - that's it. Most of the maps are simply arena fights with some tougher monsters. 29 is a bit of hectic and I will say that I don't like secrets that obviously require an arch-vile jump. Maybe OK to be speedran on UV-Fast, or UV-Respawn - it's quite challenging - but for a calm player like me, who enjoys playing tricks with monsters and finds more thrill dodging projectiles than fast-killing stuff, this wad was quite boring. I'd honestly rather play Eternal Doom than this. (If I have another 6 months to spend, of course.) Let's see if Zone 400 will be more thrilling.    Yeah, I am seaching for maps with lots of fight puzzles, switch puzzles and moving around, that aren't as long as the ones in Eternal and Epic 2. Is there such a wad at all?

      I think it is a great megawad to improve skill of someone who just finished Doom II. Short and fun levels with great soundtrack.
