Make It Startan

About This File

Prepare your eyesight for the cacophony of STARTAN mess. The visual delight you're about to experience matches only botched WADs (or that 50-shades WAD). Expect: paper-thin walls, bent doors, strange shapes, STARTAN, more STARTAN and violation of Romero's "change floor, change height" principle. Get yourself inspired by the perfect screen split as you spawn. Get yourself pumped with the pump-action shotgun (but don't forget its double-barrelled brother). Get psyched!

The map sticks to a "base" theme and uses D_RUNNIN as music because it fits the expectations above. It takes about 30 minutes to beat on HMP/UV and 10 - 15 minutes on easy.

UV difficulty is balanced around finding secrets, which range from overly-generous to pathetic. One secret is particularly helpful in choking down the horde. HMP is more suited smooth gameplay, although if you do find the secrets you might find it too easy.

Story: You just went into this place because you thought it sells juicy hamburgers. It turns out that it is instead infested with forces of Satan and it looks like it crawled out of rat's nest. You wanted to turn back, but the entrance door wouldn't open anymore. The only chance of getting out is to go in.

      Dunno. Found this pretty mediocre and repetitive.

      There is nothing innocent here!   Lol, this little mapset is great, quite short but very fast, it reminds me of the action of Scythe (one of my favorite maps) and it fills me with nostalgia to think about how great it was to play it, but going back to this map, it's simple and dynamic, the combat is quite entertaining and the maps are practically, follow the path without losing, quite simple but created in a way that allows to continue with the flow of fun, in addition, it adds even new monsters that remind a bit of Hexen, quite great.   Highly recommended, especially to kill time in a great and brutal way, the design of the maps is simple but beautiful, the enemies are well placed and gives us all kinds, my only problem with the map is maybe the little Ammunition and not so good placement of items, in itself, does not need many because of the small size of the maps, but I feel that it can be improved, anyway, enjoy this map, without a doubt, this type is my favorite, small but playful ... wait.

      Nice little mapset with short maps and nice layouts.  Cool enemies.

      One of the best mapsets I played this year.  Difficulty was challenging without frustrating.  Music gave the perfect environmental ambiance for each map.  My only quibble was the last stretch of the last map where I had no more ammo.
