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.

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.

      Barely playable. You're given bare armaments, and have to contend with using a shotgun against Hellknights and Revenants until you drop down a hole, get stuck in a maze of tunnels filled with enemies, and then find yourself in an outdoor area, still unarmed, but surrounded by enemies. Honestly, I think Sisyphus has it easier.

      This map is crap. Ugly, confusing. Each keycard is in unmarked secret area impossible to find without IDDT. I have no idea how to defeat 3 Cybies in narrow corridor. Bullshit.

      this is the kind of wad that if you got a group of newb players who want to get into custom levels, this is a fun start. it starts out easy, managing to stay easy for a very long amount of time until the halfway point. most areas are rather open, making maneuverability a lot of fun. the endgame levels are quite varied, but the overall enjoyment from playing GMP remains strong. a few unique ones here and there, like the Evilution tributes, MAP30, and MAP32, all worth it in the end.

      Not a bad WAD for 1994, the time the level was created. For such a unholy temple, it isn't very bad to plow through, and a little dull in some rooms, although some add some weird designs to stand out. The lighting is nice and the map isn't too confusing nor frustrating. The WAD might be good for a casual level to plow through, so it may be worth a shot if you are into some old obscure maps.

      The idea of the map isn't really, bad the execution is rather sloppy and while being nonlinear isn't something I see as a bad thing, there is really nothing stopping you from beating the map in 15 seconds or less if you somehow found the exit first try. Textures are sloppy, most rooms are cramped and tight to enter, buildings are thrown in randomly yet the rest of the outside map is just empty apart of a few trees. Monsters teleport inside the buildings or outside them every now and then, and it is nice that they teleport to "random" areas of the map instead of 1-2 fixated ones. However, there just isn't much here, it's pretty much what you can expect out of an old WAD.
