These five maps are from October/November 1994. They are saved as five individual .wad files (two of them are Map01). The author continued the series after this, but he didn't improve as a designer. The levels are generally medium-to-large, but they feel like a random set of polygonal rooms with random textures; either that, or they're empty (Map05) or aimless (Map03). Overall, less entertaining than a cucumber.

      My comments are regarded to these maps and the rest of the 8 maps found here = https://www.doomworld.com/files/file/18251-zdmp2014/
      I've played all maps on UV. The big majority of the maps are good, but some really stood out. Maps made by Dhu Man Yhu, Walter Confalonieri, sincity2100, Jaws in Space, FireSeraphim, Eradrop and Toxie Rocks are really nice, worth downloading just to play these. All the other maps are fine with exception of 3: BloodyAcid (couldn't play due to lag), Dobu Garu Maru (too long and confusing) and Obsidian (a puzzle map - not my cup of tea).

      Not five stars compared to modern maps.  Despite the late submission year, this wad dates back to May 29th, 1994.   I got it on an add-on CD in 1995.   Five Stars for its time to bump up the average as this was one of my favorite classic wads of its time... So much so I messed around adding scripting with more switches to manipulate a spawn number by its digits and spawn whatever there's a number for.   And here are those scripts for seven different switches to execute, though I recommend limiting selectible numbers.   And you could do something more involved like summon groups of monsters and implement the thing hate command to make them fight. #include "zcommon.acs" int haha; SCRIPT 20 OPEN     {     haha = 154;     }          SCRIPT 23 (void)     {     haha+=1;     printbold (d:haha);     }      SCRIPT 22 (void)     {     haha+=10;     printbold (d:haha);     } SCRIPT 21 (void)     {     haha+=100;     printbold (d:haha);     } SCRIPT 26 (void)     {     haha-=1;     printbold (d:haha);     } SCRIPT 25 (void)     {     haha-=10;     printbold (d:haha);     }      SCRIPT 24 (void)     {     haha-=100;     printbold (d:haha);     } SCRIPT 27 (void)     {     printbold (d:haha);     Thing_Spawn (random(3,6), haha, 0, 7);         }

      A cool ZDoom mapset with well-balanced new monsters, good music, and of course the star of the show: the new arsenal. I'm not the fan of the difficulty at some spots (did I miss something in map04 or is it meant to be an ammo-starved slog?) but when you've got the full arsenal at your disposal, the gameplay becomes really fun.

      Awesome Doom 2 chaos with a fresh look and weapons. Cheers The new weapons remind me of Q1 Malice. Loving the chainsaw replacement.

      There's definitely some ideas put into use here, but the result is rather sloppy. You start off with three teleporters in the first room, so going in blindly, I couldn't tell if I had to take one teleporter first or if I can complete the level in (almost) any order. To sum it up, you have to go through these teleporters in a linear order to complete the level, otherwise you'll be greeted by locked doors that serve as a reminder that you're going the wrong way. The level itself isn't overly confusing, but coming in the gauntlet room unprepared left a sour impression.   The majority of rooms are spacious and not very pleasing to look at. You'll see big open rooms with dirt and marble textures placed throughout, and aside of the pentagram room with Spectres and an Arch-Vile at the center, the map just boils down to dull rooms and hallways you can run past through. With good use of powerups, you can get by most threats without an issue. There's some bits of carnage, but the overall gameplay feels plain.   A little heads up, but when playing on a ZDoom port, the teleporters at the start of each area will teleport you to a random destination. That is because their lines are zero-tagged teleport actions, meaning they will teleport you to any destination placed on a zero-tagged sector. This can make the level more confusing to complete as you may end up in an area you aren't supposed to be at. When playing in vanilla, these teleporters will always teleport you to the start of the level.
