About This File

This is my first map added in idgames database. Main layout was made in one day and after that I polished everything and fixed main issues.

I tried express my depressive feeling through grey, brown and white textures. Music choice was accident, which perfectly fitted in this kind of map. I recommend turn off infinite height, but it's not important.

The map description states that Haruko tried to express his depressive feelings through the texturing and that came through. The dim lighting and midi went a long way in helping it to sell the depressive feeling.

 

The geometry was solid with some particularly nice detailing here and there but the actual layout was really good. The central hub worked well with keeping you on track.

 

The monster placement was on point and led to interesting fights - particularly the ones involving archviles. I really found the difficulty to be just about perfect on UV.

 

The crescendo at the end worked very well where it was tough but understandable and beatable. At first it's a chaotic mess of monsters, archviles and an Icon of Sin but as you work your way through the madness it starts to make sense.

 

It takes care and attention to try to express something as abstract as an emotion (other than rage) through Doom wads and I think Greymood did that with the gameplay to back it up. I'd be interested to hear from Haruko if any particular set-piece or element was representative of anything.

"Layout done in 1 day". Not bad, not bad at all.

 

The map is short and it gives you all weapons and ends in a massive monster slaughter invasion and an Icon of Sin monster spawner. It might sound difficult, but it's not due to invulnerability spheres.

 

The mood is indeed "grey" here, both literally and metaphorically. Despite the use of mainly grey colors, the visuals are still decent and create a gloomy theme.

I liked this map: not a masterwork but it's funny and visually well made.  

Unfortunately I could not finish the final battle: my pc was throwing flames and screaming!

My advice: give it a try.

the feel in this map holds quite the dreadfulness, as it is for this very map. what we deal with here is modern-style combat in a gray moody layout, expecting some pretty hard matchups against several difficult encounters. it certainly hits its stride in the final area, where the slaughter is, though getting two invulnerabilities helped as I thin out the hordes. of course, always be careful of both the snipers and the enemies coming from the monster spawner. not a whole lot of hint as to how to defeat the spawner, but i managed to figure it out after getting rid of the cyberdemon threat. a fun but hard experience.

I really like this level. The dreadfulness here is really nice. Detail is pretty good, although some places could've used more. The level is fucking hard (which I like) and definitely is fast-paced. Overall a really cool level. 4/5 :)

      A set of crude mixed bag of 9 maps from January of 1996 from shit(Map01) to pretty good(Map03). Grant it these maps are a bit on the easy side with a bit too much health & ammo but the large monster count makes up for it :)   3.5/5

      Surreal psycho-robot salad. Love that frantic chessboard arena fight vs Cyberdemon. Slow moving rockets??

      A bit dark at first, don't go blowing the barrels in your face, the maps were getting better as I follow the episode. I remember getting lost in e2m7 (my favourite).

      Large techbase with a "labyrinthic" layout with some interesting special effects like invisible walls, including the weirdest choice of putting a invisible wall beyond a door making you think that you can pass it, but not. Plus includes non-toxic nukage (i like when in maps, especially in old ones, this thing happens!) and monsters. And big boxes of ammo. A lot of both, actually. This map could be put as some sort of slaughtermap, but not that difficult as you can think. So, just an endurance test.   The map crashes on vanilla doom.exe when saving and found some minor bugs for the invisible floors trickery at the lift after the yellow key.   Overall, a cool and thought map, overall.

      E2M1 E2M1 is a good yet puzzling map. It contains chalk full of puzzles, secrets, and confusing traps alongside slightly cramped hallways. I also like the hellish theme incorporated and it could nearly pass as an "Inferno" Map! Another thing is that, its really impressive for 1994 and implements a lot of aspects in Doom Puzzles. Overall, a good map, could do some slight improvements on texture use though. E2M2 E2M2 on the other hand is an arena-like battle map. a lot of the architecture such as the pyramid is pretty cool and some other aspects of the map. The space of this map is quite big and it could use some more monsters and more guns with its overall big atmosphere..an average battle map, not bad!
