About This File

A mapset I finished in 1998, never before released. See info below. Mapset is optimized for pistol start, although it was originally meant for continuous play. The Blue Armor in Map01 is the only item that still helps only continuers.

Great visuals, creative layouts with unorthodox and challenging gameplay, while still holding those 90s vibes. Although sometimes it can get stressful due to the high influx of monsters in massive areas while giving you no time to rest (edit: though, some will probably enjoy the execution bit more than me -- which is why I changed it from 4 to 5 stars), it's essential for every vanilla lover, and a good trip as well.

Loud Silence

  

Creative, fun, entertaining and challenging levels, very cleverly hidden secrets, some butt-kicking ambushes and traps. Ammo balance is pretty tight in some maps with pistol start, but everything is possible. A must-play WAD.

Constant action that grows more and more hectic with each map. The struggle for survival is real in this one. The distinctive part of this WAD is the music, which sounds like something that could come out of an Amiga game. The maps have elaborate layouts, with branching pathways that can be beaten in parallel in coop or with parts of maps connecting in unexpected ways.

Classic Doom style mapset that feels like a mix of E1 and TNT with some Plutonia elements present. Generally solid although gunners are abundant while health is not so much, necessitating quite conservative play in parts.

      while it does a good job replicating episode 1 aesthetically, the levels are riddled with questionable design choices. doors that dont need to be there, a million secrets often crammed onto the back end of a level resulting in useless items unless youre not pistol starting, and just a bit too easy. for an author who claims his work is top notch and the best of the best, you shot your arrow pretty far from the bullseye my friend.

      Another one I haven't played for years and years and just revisited: Fava Beans is a solid E1 replacement and a good one if you want a chilled out, mostly really easy WAD. The level design is a cut above considering the historical context of this set, and it nails the E1 feel. Heavier monsters are introduced much earlier, but the difficulty rarely gets above casual.   E1M8 is anticlimactic and feels like a letdown after the consistency of the preceding maps, but aside from that I recommend it for an easygoing old school Doom fix. That said, it could have been harder in places. There have been better E1 replacements since, but Fava Beans is still worth a look.   Best: E1M4, E1M5, E1M7

      Not that crazy as you can think from the title, it's a interesting map with some cool design choices and some nice small puzzles as well. Fun to play and run swell.
