A very well put together mapset. Excellent layouts, spectacular graphics and testing gameplay (which includes five archviles in a lava pit at one point...). Level three is perhaps the standout, but really there are no duds. 

 

If I had to nitpick, I'd say the authors could have made a concession to exponents of continuous play by consistently placing a couple of 25% healthpacks and a green armour near the start of each level (try doing some of these if you finish the previous one with 20% health and no armour!). Also the ending of the game is a little weird and something of a letdown in my view.

 

9 out of 10.

I can't help but love what's been coming from 40oz and company lately - this was a very fun and quick set of levels with plenty of red themes to go around. Really loved some of the concepts on play; there's a couple 'reach for the top' stages, a hemmed-in section of pumping rockets into crowds of cacos and former humans and some other brutal affairs carefully introduced without overstaying its welcome. I did feel some parts were potentially more frustrating given a lighter footing - if you're as careless as I can be at times you might just take some hits from behind you in some windowed acres of flying projectiles or trying to solve the mystery of the lost hitscanner. This is otherwise a worthwhile mapset, no doubt - and at 7 maps in length it shouldn't take players long to explore for themselves and see what they liked most about it.

Great wad. Minor bug, you can break some things on map 2 if you go the other way at the start.

A pretty good level set with some memorable levels, does a lot of justice to its tan techbase and lava mountains theme.

Short level by level:

-Map01: Best opening tan techbase!

-Map02: Awesome lava mountain adventure

-Map03: Good chaotic level with nice visuals

-Map04: Weird gimmick map that uses ledges. Not a fan because it bogs the map down

-Map05: Good detailing, but frustratingly rough sometimes and not a whole lot of interesting structures.

-Map06: Good modern level

-Map07: Hard and a bit unfair sometimes, but  good visuals and other well thought out stuff saves it from being mediocre.

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.

      Starts with all monsters with their backs to you, and you might as well leave it that way and just listen to the music. One big rectangular room with no finish switch. They couldn't even make the rectangle properly - freehand I guess. Kill the monsters if you want, it's easy.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.
