Very consistent and unique, short but a lot of fun

The first 4 levels are very fun romps with a good difficulty curve, never taking too long to get into the action. The author favors large spaces with lots of monsters attacking from multiple directions. Although there are some areas that are designed so the best option is just to snipe from a corner, which I consider a negative. The texturing is clean & consistent, and there's a lot of nice directional lighting. It also gets bonus credit for doing something Ive never seen before - torches that SUBTRACT light, creating untraditional shadows.

However, the finale map is a very jolting shift to slaughter gameplay. You're placed in a relatively small arena and have to run around like a chicken with its head cut off (no BFG) as high-tier monsters teleport in constantly from every direction. I gave up when some kind of Archvile teleported in too. Im not a slaughter fan anyways but it seems like it wouldnt even be well-designed for fans of that gameplay, as the arena is very simplistic and the enemy spawns seem chaotic/random .

So overall I would give 5 stars for the first 4 maps and subtract a star for the final map.

Excellent visuals and well-designed levels of moderate difficulty. A very competently executed mapset.

GREAT setting used here, and the overall gameplay isn't that bad either.

I like me some Egyptians. This WAD plays very ok, looks exactly as advertised and has consistent gameplay.  Visuals are a bit bare but maybe this fits the theme?

      Dario Casali siege-carnage adventure. There's maybe a thousand monsters in here, so better find those weapons and start to think how to digest it all. Watch out for those nazi ghost. Built time about two. Funny.

      The level design is absolutely great! i love how it makes you genuinely feel like you are in a building the whole time..   For some reason this wad gives me a Die Hard vibe [probably the whole "Go down a building" Motif... now all we need is a demonic Hans and we are all set]   but yeah.. great wad overall...

      Amazing episode, some custom decorations and good care to lights and shadows. I like how he uses the playing space (wide corridors) and how it affects the combat. Despite her beautiful voice, you gotta kill her. Burning trees.

      Nice, tight level design. E1M8 was an amazing puzzle map.
      It's surprisingly difficult for a Doom 1 WAD, but for wrong reasons: constant ambushes, monsters teleporting right behind you. Also, there is a serious lack of medikits. Fights with 5 % health and hitscanners all around are common.
      Still, it was quite fun.

      Seriously underappreciated WAD. If you've played the Japanese Community Project, Manbou (burabojunior) was the most prolific contributor, and without his nine maps, the JPCP wouldn't have the same reputation for fun and artistic flair. He announced Water Spirit in the text file for JPCP, and released it a year later. These are three somewhat challenging maps with high enemy counts and visuals even more stunning than his JPCP maps. Manbou is probably my favorite visual artist in Doom. My only complaint is that the PWAD as a whole is really short, consisting of only three maps that are about ten minutes of gameplay each. It leaves me wanting a lot more.
