a rather surprisingly good set of three levels, tons of space to move around in, but you've got your meat set out for you here. first level isn't too much, although the water is quite deceiving. second one has you finding three separate shrines of sorts in a much longer adventure, but with some pretty tough combat to boot, last level is more open fields, loads of mancubi and arachnotrons plus several other enemies and pickups, a tough amount that bends into slaughter territory, but still managing to be a little easier to tangle with due to the large amount of space. I certainly agree, it's quite appropriate for what it has.

Took me an hour or two to play, basically several maps with nice detailing, custom textures, and a unique style to them. The difficulty was easygoing on HMP, however I dont know what its like on UV. The further into the WAD I got, the more difficult it became, with the final level being much more difficult than the previous ones. I am tempted to call the last level a "slaughter" map due to the large hordes of enemies in them. Overall, it was quite good. Would definitely recommend

Despite the large amount of enemies the fights aren't that difficult (probably because there's much room to manuever and many items). Very well done visuals and non-linear layouts that are also easy to navigate. Good music. This WAD has just appropriate level of epic.

      well, the concept is good  BUT...   WHAT THE FUCK EVEN IS THIS??

      Definitely shows its age. It was a real grind to play through, mostly due to the levels being boring, but also from a remarkable over-reliance on hitscan, especially shotgunners. For some reason. The third episode does indeed pick up much of the slack, but with the really fun levels being shining exceptions rather than rule for two thirds of the WAD it still left me annoyed and exasperated in the end. The maps look fine most of the time and the music is good to really good, which is something to hold on to. I would still advice my past self to skip most of this one.

      There's not too much for me to say about this one. While it isn't exactly my jam 100% of the time, I'm struggling to see how any creative endeavor could entertain me so thoroughly, throughout all the 32 parts of it. Ancient Aliens is charming, somewhat challenging, mysterious, well-paced... I could iterate over plenty of different variations of lavish praise, but I guess that in and of itself describes my feelings: AA is remarkably well-rounded. A DOOM blockbuster - and I use that description as an honest compliment rather than the pejorative it's sometimes thought of. One for the ages, and it'll be one of the WADs to which many of my future experience will be compared.

      On second thought, this wad is kinda mid if you ask me. After playing through all of it on pistol-start I wasn't really blown away by it. The midi pack that was made for this in 2020 was very nice if you ask me, but why this wad ever deserves a midi pack when it's so bland is what makes me scratch my head. Idk man, I didn't like this one as much as others do :/.

      This reads as an early example of arcade-style mapping.   Areas are defined largely by color combinations, with no real overarching theme to the map: there are silver techbase rooms, brick-like Earth rooms, red hellish rooms, without much in the way of detailing or setting-building -- all centralized around a square hub room with key doors, which repopulates with monsters each time you find a key. It's on the simpler side visually, but still a very clear step above "monotextured square rooms"-type design, with some solid architecture, shapes, and texture combos here and there, and even a clever crushing UFO-like "ring" at one point.    The gameplay concepts are very straightforward, with one exception being a room that has you platforming over damaging floor while closets of lost souls and cacodemons open up. Instead, the bulk of the fighting is more often dished out as blocks of monsters often revealed in closets -- blocks at a density far below what you'd consider slaughter. Some of the potential fun involves herding monsters towards barrels; once I waited several seconds for chaingunners to walk halfway across the room, right next to a clump of barrels I could blow them all up with. The ending fight is designed for you to pour rockets into two static cybs while circling, and I skipped that one.    Completed in a bit under 10 minutes.
