I'm not really a big deathmatch player, but I played this with a couple friends a few weeks ago and had a blast. The maps are small (4 players best), fast paced, and have good flow and item placement. All of the maps were really fun, to the point where I can't pick a favorite or least favorite. I would definitely recommend this to someone looking for a good couple maps to kill their friends on.

Free-flowing maps with enough space to move around comfortably, well placed weapons / spawns and a very clean yet very classic aesthetic. Absolutely recommended.

A modern mapset that captures the feel of oldschool maps perfectly. Many of these maps have the potential to become staples in OS duel and DM compilation sets. There are plenty of good set-ups yet they might be considered unconventional, making these maps stand out from other releases in recent years. Standard vanilla themes, clean texturing and structuring. Constant clean-ups minimized any outcroppings that might catch a player for smooth movement. Good variety of weapon spawns and usage, only a few SSG slugfests. Overall good variation in heights throughout the maps without being too over-dramatic.

 

An absolute must try for any OS loving pvp player, and a good time for 1v1 or 3-4 person free for all.

      Another abomination in doom mapping. It's crap even in crap category.

      Ugly, rectangular, not enough ammo. In one word: CRAP

      Sound replacement is terrible. Sounds are very annoying. Level also is ugly. Only thing I like is sprites replacement. Kicking nazi asses is same as good like demons ones ;)

      Dear Doomkid,

      I was involved in the design and play-test of each of these levels. Please know these were created from *scratch* and we spent our time making sure the levels were as playable as possible. We were not terribly focused on texturing, other than to give players positional awareness in different parts of each arena.

      Map 6 -- Offices of Death -- Was intentionally designed to be as accurate a representation of the office we worked in as possible. Admittedly, playability was taken as a second priority. We did manage to create working "elevators" and "stairs" to give the illusion you were going up and down floors. I was pretty happy with how we did.

      Considering it was 1996, and no way to simply "Google" different ideas. Your best bet at the time was to jump onto the Usenet and hope you could find a decent board with active members. Other than that, it was pretty much all self-taught.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the other levels. Yes, they are old-school, big arena, style. We spent a LOT of time trying to make sure they were as balanced as possible, with escape routes, and required risks for rewards.

      Excellent stuff for the mid-1990s. Lots of action, good layouts, pretty challenging on UV.    9/10
