Had a blast with Vicarious Reality - I really liked the concept of pistol-starting simulations with different takes on the gameplay. Cool texture themes have you exploring bright and colorful techbases with some kind of focused gimmick mixed with traditional gameplay elements. It's a quick playthrough of only 6 maps, which was good for passing an evening. There's some cool ideas on display that would be a shame to spoil here, but the differences in what made each map special helped to keep things refreshing.

 

A warning for new players; every map has some kind of death exit, and a couple of times I did happen to break it in some way. One time I was killed by teleporting onto an exploding barrel, which killed me but didn't push the player dummy past the exit line. If all else fails you can always skip to the next map with the IDCLEVXX cheat.

      A set of crude mixed bag of 9 maps from January of 1996 from shit(Map01) to pretty good(Map03). Grant it these maps are a bit on the easy side with a bit too much health & ammo but the large monster count makes up for it :)   3.5/5

      Surreal psycho-robot salad. Love that frantic chessboard arena fight vs Cyberdemon. Slow moving rockets??

      A bit dark at first, don't go blowing the barrels in your face, the maps were getting better as I follow the episode. I remember getting lost in e2m7 (my favourite).

      Large techbase with a "labyrinthic" layout with some interesting special effects like invisible walls, including the weirdest choice of putting a invisible wall beyond a door making you think that you can pass it, but not. Plus includes non-toxic nukage (i like when in maps, especially in old ones, this thing happens!) and monsters. And big boxes of ammo. A lot of both, actually. This map could be put as some sort of slaughtermap, but not that difficult as you can think. So, just an endurance test.   The map crashes on vanilla doom.exe when saving and found some minor bugs for the invisible floors trickery at the lift after the yellow key.   Overall, a cool and thought map, overall.

      E2M1 E2M1 is a good yet puzzling map. It contains chalk full of puzzles, secrets, and confusing traps alongside slightly cramped hallways. I also like the hellish theme incorporated and it could nearly pass as an "Inferno" Map! Another thing is that, its really impressive for 1994 and implements a lot of aspects in Doom Puzzles. Overall, a good map, could do some slight improvements on texture use though. E2M2 E2M2 on the other hand is an arena-like battle map. a lot of the architecture such as the pyramid is pretty cool and some other aspects of the map. The space of this map is quite big and it could use some more monsters and more guns with its overall big atmosphere..an average battle map, not bad!
