About This File

A remote base in a rocky wilderness. The difficulty and general theme are meant to slot in somewhere maps 09-10 in the original Doom 2. This is my first attempt at designing a map, so brutally honest feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Quite well-made, could use some more texture variation and a bit more detailing. +1 star because it's a first map.

It's nice for a first map, but there are way to many STARTAN textures and a TON of unused space in some parts. I'm giving this a 3.

Nice work as for first map. But there error in it which may become critical. Linedef that should activate red key doom isn't tagged, so it will become impossible to complete in some ports (Chocolate doom for example).

Given some less blandness this could look like something that came out straight out of Doom 2 IWAD. It's not bad by any means, as the gameplay is just fine, if mostly easy. Layout is semi-open and allows non-linear exploration. The visuals lack, though. The map is full of STARTANs. Architecture could use some more detail and maybe somewhat tighter spaces to allow more challenging combat. Strong 3*.

      A 1994 map with some of the limitations you might expect, but overall this is well thought out and executed. It's also a very good challenge, certainly on the UV setting. It's actually for E1M1, as another review points out.   There's a Doom 2 conversion of this on the Demon Gate CD compilation, and maybe others.   A bit better than the bare 4 stars. Around 8.5+ out of 10.

      I was surprised to see that this was a WAD made in 1994, it doesn't have many of the mistakes you would find in other WADs, it's fairly nonlinear but never to the point of being a bad maze, and it's a fun short map all around. While there might be a bit more ammo than you'll really need, the WAD is solid for 1994 and might even be fun for deathmatch, maybe. Overall, a 1994 WAD worth playing!

      I had a lot of fun with this. I absolutely love the Doom 3 textures being put to use, too. Excellent atmosphere, and probably one of the more 'fitting' uses of RSKY1 I've seen in quite some time. This level strongly encourages the player to thoroughly explore for secrets, otherwise your ammo count would always end up getting tight.   I would have given this 5 stars, had it not been for two things:   1) As mentioned before, ammo was particularly short towards the beginning. When I first played this I struggled with trying to conserve my Shotgun shells - having a Chaingun instead of having to resort to the Pistol might've been an improvement, although this didn't really bother me too much in all honesty.   2) Towards the end, I had an issue where picking up the yellow keycard made three nearby Imps atop of the cliff-faces unkillable. Not exactly sure what happened here, just make sure to kill them before collecting the key if you wish for a 100% kill rate.   Other than that, this was excellently done. Good job, Romulus!  :D

      Felt so much like the original Wolfenstein and Spear of Destiny. Used just the right balance of new Gzdoom features and old style Wolfenstein play! Excellent.

      Barely playable. You're given bare armaments, and have to contend with using a shotgun against Hellknights and Revenants until you drop down a hole, get stuck in a maze of tunnels filled with enemies, and then find yourself in an outdoor area, still unarmed, but surrounded by enemies. Honestly, I think Sisyphus has it easier.
