I liked this quite much.  Very clean visuals an fun fights.  HMP wasn't too hard.

4 stars for 4 maps, but when going in to this, keep in mind that it indulges/awakens masochistic tendencies. Oil your F3 key well, lest it will squeak.

 

Visually the maps are green and based on pillars - the architecture serves the purpose of building arenas to fight the monsters in. The low monster count of each map is deceptive, as they are used in a way that maximizes hurt. Expect all rooms to contain arch-vile & cyberdemon invasion. At least on UV. I don't know how are lower difficulties.

A four level mapset utilizing heavily all the green textures and floors from the original IWADs plus an additional green tinted sky. The second level adds the black rock texture to the mix. All levels have some basetech parts here and there too but the mapset is predominantly green. I like maps that have their own visual style and consistently follow it.

Flow is pretty good, I always knew where to go and didn't have to wander around. The medium size maps helped this too.

There were some nice traps and monster fights were tough but fun. I liked the area in the first map where you got to choose which pillars to lower and see which monster were inside them. It was a bit like Monty Hall except none of the pillars had a car!

The influence of Death Destiny's works is very apparent yet it contains quite a lot modern aspects mixed together with Pauls own style. Alltogether a very delightful combination and accordingly 5 well deserved stars.

This is good. Small mapset stylistically certain may be brutal on UV in some locations and you would feel the tension be sure. Paul will try to scare you a little sometimes and warn about coming event. I enjoyed  it like a short story.

      The fighting was fun. Finding the lift that was unmarked (even in the automap!), was not.

      It's fine, but why did you put the rusted key in a secret? It wasn't worth the trouble to find it.

      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
