The maze part is killing me. With Doom's 3D capabilities building a maze is something one might try to show to friends or try out for oneself, but not release as a map for the public!

 

Because the maze does not work. And it is not AS difficult, just very tedious.

 

And it is a pity, because there are several very cool areas in the map. The area with white platforms is very nice, although it definitely needs more lighting. Everything is way too dark.

 

Anyway, a very uneven map, with a lot of corridors and several cool rooms. All in all, a fail as a map, a worthy specimen to look at for some design inspiration.

1995. Map has some nice details, textures are ok. But there is a maze. Big, monotonous maze. With only right angles one texture, and few stacked pinkies. Gameplay is bad. Switch hunting, backtracking with no idea where to go. Secrets are not flagged at all. If you are too observant you may miss all the level, becouse there's shortcut from the begining to end.  Graphic: 3.5/5* Gameplay: 1/5*

This is dated June 1995. I started playing it, and became increasingly bored when it seemed that I was wandering around a maze; and after doing IDBEHOLDA I came to the conclusion that the greater part of the map is indeed a narrow, winding, right-angled maze, in which you run forwards whilst shooting monsters that appear in front of you. I hate mazes.

      I guess this was meant to be a serious wad, just using a trick to make the C-Demon hard to see. I don't think it was a deliberate troll of the style that caught on later, eg Sand Chain and the Terry wads. IMHO it nowhere near holds the record for "worst wad ever" (even if it did once) so it is now "over-rated" in that respect. I was a bit disappointed, I was expecting worse LoL.

      Doomers these days have varying levels of patience. I know I have some of the worst when it comes to quickly finishing areas and moving on, which is why I prefer shorter levels most of the time. this particular map, a Maximum Doom map by the way, is one that completely tested my patience.   this is 8 levels long, from E1M1 to E1M8, and is sort of a proto-slaughtermap episode replacement. every map here has at least 200 monsters, and the layouts of each say that they are compact in size. so the action would be pretty good and fun right?   WRONG   while it's fun to kill all these enemies, this is honestly horribly balanced. on the first level, you only really get a shotgun and a chaingun, and it took me a while to get just one armor too. is that the worst part? I can actually enjoy the challenge of such a gameplay scenario so no. what's problematic about each and every level in this wad is that when you're not killing enemies, you're just sort of fucking around. in other words, you're switch hunting. but this is the worst kind due to lifts that have zero indications that they are lifts, as well as switches that have zero indication of what they did. not to mention some walls are triggers, when they really don't have any indication that they really do anything. oh yes, and mandatory secrets and backtracking. I would like the combat more if it gave more weapons too, not one plasma gun or BFG in sight, and all that backtracking just...fucking...headdesk. there's no reliable way to even speedrun this, to the point where I wonder if the author ever realized that other's would tire the fuck out over it. "these are the easy ones" this has all the hallmarks of a bad Maximum Doom map.   it's amazing how varied my Maximum Doom experience is so far. there are some really fun maps, mediocre but quick maps, and some long and nasty ones. I'm honestly trying to avoid reviewing any maps from there but i'll make an exception for this particular one since it's just unbelievably bad.

      Pointless crap.  A small yard, empty except for a futuristic shotgun. No monsters and no exit. See my screenshot and you've seen it all.

      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.
