mole doom episode 1: this is a 9 level mapset for doom 1. it replaces episode 1. there isn't really any plot aside from the standard doom plot. it's got 8 maps and one secret level. if you want a plot i'll make one up: you play john ninmole. a scientist at the research center on phobos. you were called in one morning on your goddamn day off. something has gone wrong with the teleporter again and it's your job to fix it. this happened just recently, but when it did the whole other moon disappeared. when you arrived to your station everyone was dead. you quickly grabbed a pistol off a dead security guard and prepared yourself for the most stressful workday of your life. and the worst part is you're not even supposed to be here today!------------------ 3 of these levels have partimes: e1m3: 1:31 e1m5: 3:18 e1m9: 0:27 these par times were set by my friend stoogy. unfortunately, he didn't get a chance to play the rest of the levels before release.

E1M1 here betrayes very little of what's to come but hints at it with some nice architecture that feels out of place in such a seemingly unassuming creation.  So at first i thought this was going to be 'a nice little set', but soon was proven wrong, as this is pretty much a masterpiece of design, and the combat too will get a bit more testing - especially on E1M8, which is a very cool take loosely based on the OG.  But just a couple maps in, the design rivals anything in the original E1, so don't let the unadorned aesthetics fool you.  i am not a modernist and not in favour of over-detailing, but even for me at first this seemed bare-boned, yet it was no issue once i got used to it, and i even came to appreciate it.

 

Have to give full five stars as i can't think of a single reason to take one off.

 

And: like others have said, E1M9 is special :)

A set that work pretty well :)

Just found out that this is by the same creator of JNNHangar and stuff, and as its previous map this mapset is good while staying on basic stuff, also the layout feels a little bit less linear for the good. I still find that it is rather not enough decorated and blend sometimes, but it is ok.

E1M8 was the little "challenge", fair last level !

+1 for the awersome secret level !

Played on UV.  Some surprising encounters.  Excellent use of KDitD beastiary.  Overall a great E1 replacement for vanilla Doom.  Also, the secret level was brilliant, an amazing combination!

Overall, good job!  Thanks Josh for making this and giving me a shoutout in the credits.  

 

I played this on HMP, continuous, and with GZDoom.  This WAD certainly hits a lot of the same (awesome) notes of Doom E1 without getting too close to the originals, and I think improves the final fight in E1M8.  It would get a 5 star rating except for two overall problems:

 

--There are decent stretches of map with a lot of the same wall texture  The opening area in E1M1 and the exterior wall in E1M5 are examples of this.

 

--In E1M6 and 7, there are a few hallways where it looks like I was supposed to approach from the other direction, and the monsters were either set to Ambush or behind two sound blocking walls.  Maybe split the orientations next time so half the monsters are facing one exit and half are facing the other way.

 

This WAD is definitely worth the time to play through, and it ends the way E1 should have ended.

      I played up to The Crusher and... frankly, it soured the taste in my mouth to the point that I don't want to continue and try all of the maps.    Surprisingly hideous and wonderfully claustrophobic architecture, with monotonic texture usage and gimmicks at every turn of the map. Then of course the Arch-Vile maze because apparently it's a necessity to copy the Casalis at least once in your mapping career. The crushing ceiling was just the cherry on the top. Not a fan.

      It was interesting,sometimes fun,sometimes hard,sometimes annoyingly hard but we later smile about it(Going Down feeling you know?),i loved the fact that everything feels and look different in terms of level design,sounds,texures and visuals,and the music is here to say to you "you're on a vacation/exploration trip...but not too much,it's Doom !",and technically some levels are great creations,obviously with a modified Id Tech 1,because the original one couldn't do things that some level showed i guess.   Ancient Aliens have a very good overall feeling to play,it's Doom,with a bit of Blake Stone,Star Wars,System Shock and maybe others inspirations,it's very risky to merge differerents inspirations into one big work.   DeadLostSoul,Commander Keen,EvilMarines new enemies are nice too.   My favorites Levels :   Arachnotron Arrival (Nice constant spider in the middle that keeps the pressure on you to move or hide,i liked the monster placements and traps too)   Last Refuge Of The Anasazi   Sinkhole Showdown   Dare To Fly Where Eagles Soar   Ancient Aliens   The Nectar Flow (Huge Level and fun to play)   Polychromatic Terrace   Blazing Boulevard   Wormhole Junction (Damn this is a Going Down Style level !)   Leave Your Sol Behind (A three time height ramp/elevator[don't know how to call that]in Doom? Didn't know that was possible,and flying saucers travel to others worlds,seriously?,didn't expected that o_O,loved the creativity on this level)   Daylight Under A Dark Sol   Culture Shock (A level in the clouds and touching the sky,successive teleporters,a tv working,ropes to elevate yourself,real scales,we need more levels like this,It reminds me that WOW EFFECT i had with Zeal World in Chrono Trigger when i saw all that,too bad it was short,but fantastic idea)   I Skipped Illuminati Confirmed (Too many details and enemies,lags as hell can't do anything,it looked like an insane level)   I Skipped Trinary Temple (Too Much Lags)   I Skipped The Ones Behind It All (Too Much Lags)   The lasts levels lags a lot on Brutal Doom,but that's not your fault,i don't want to play Vanilla Doom,BD is way better to me haha.

      A half completed partial conversion based upon the late 90s anime franchise of Tenchi Muyo, that i'm aware It exist and It was relevant in the western anime fandom, despite i know It marginally but i saw a special (Tenchi Muyo in love!) and my first anime figurine it's one of Ryoko... Oh, and a pair of compilation wads using charatchers from this series (Mihoshi and... Ryoko maybe?) downloaded eons ago from anipike, only the site name will make you understand how old It was when i got them, if you know It. Back on the review topic, the levels itself are... Really crappy and cramped as i remembered them when i played this the same 00 decade period i talked before. MAP01 is a small structure that... I suppose it's... Uhhh... A prison? The Matrix massive glitching? Mihoshi fever wet dream? A schizotypical delirium in Doom level form? Anyway, it's a small abstract structure with a yellow key apparently missing from the map, with a central hub sex dungeon where unhappy Hitler cacos portrait are watching your suffering navigating uncanny small areas finding a way to progress in this place; MAP02 Is set in the titular orbital airship from the show where cutesy, badly paletted sprites from the RPG game welcoming you in the living quarters of the ship; MAP03 Is a unfinished Island map with a temple structure reachable only by idclip It. I gave up in this point and didn't played  Sprites and graphic work in general is... not that bad, actually, despite the raw nature of It. I liked the movie wall in MAP03 and the simple succubi sprite in MAP01. Music choice is a joke and have almost nothing to do with the original source over that... Japan and anime are involved somehow, but now i want to make a level where a slow blue lights walls room is rising up slowly while "Cruel Angel Thesis" MIDI blast from the speakers giving to all of this a bizzarre feeling. Cruel Lift Thesis, AH! What a funny guy i am! Overall a small weird project unfortunately not that good to be acceptable, but weird and "bad" enough to be remember in ages. Also, another "War and Peace" piece of review for a mediocre but bizzarre wad that i wrote after a very long time! Thanks Tenchi Muyo Doom!

      A nice remake of Duke Nukem 3D "Red Light District" all made using stock assets and some liberties here and there from the original source, but it's a interesting concept after all. No exit and looks all kind of same-y, but the main areas are all here and it's not a bad remake. Maybe too many doors for DM?
