The level design is fantastic, and the maps are really big. Making maps like these is really hard, because you have to fill the entire map with details. There were a lot of creative traps and ideas, so overall it's a fantastic wad. It started out a little dull (nothing terrible, the maps still looked good), because there were too many monsters, and I only had a shotgun, but from the third level it got really good.


The secret level actually felt like a secret level. It was unique and fun. Lot ot people make secret levels the hardest, and most challenging to beat, but this was just a nice level.

A fun, good looking episode 1 mapset for Doom with a modest amount of difficulty. Recommended.

A very good episode with pretty visuals and balanced gameplay.

Expect the same that is in the vanilla Episode 1. A large portion of abstract base levels with some nukage, many optional sections, gameplay that doesn't involve post-shareware monsters and not very high difficulty level. This is some good, light-hearted play good for a slow morning or for an evening with a nice glass of beer. The action doesn't stall and the level layouts are interesting. Pretty good.

      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.

      The map author left the words "how not" out of his description, I'll let you figure out where.

      More tripe.  Huge badly designed and featureless rooms that give you leg ache just watching going through them. The opposition from monsters is pitiful.

      A busted crock of shit. The map is random scribble, it's insane.  Why do they upload this tripe?  The third screenshot above gives an idea what to expect.
