I like this mapset. It's short but with constant action. The maps progress slowly from base theme to hell, but unfortunately they do seem a bit "samey". Maybe that's due to the use of blocky design, but then again this isn't visible that much. The maps are rather open in overall.

 

It isn't anything mind blowing, but it's well done and if you like playing standard Doom, you will like this mapset.

I very liked the structure of the maps, the general atmosphere/setting and the music. The maps have personality and are immersive. They are properly long and articulated. The fights instead are not equally good: mostly not bad but often messy and unnerving. Sometime i found the ammunitions to be almost insufficient. Also some weapons are given to the player too late in the episode (chainsaw: map7, BFG: map10. Maybe it's me??).

In short: good wad but don't expect top notch battles.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.

      Absolutely ludicrous, Now I need a new keyboard. Technically as bad as a wad can be, surely deliberate. I like to check out low-rated wads, so it's a pity that some clowns gave this  (and other bad ones) 5 stars, because averaged with correct low scores they end up with a middling rating and can be missed.

      Would not play with PRBoom, with errors about missing files : FluidR3_GM.sf2 and STARTAN2.  These were not provided in the zip file.
