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.

      Dear Doomkid,

      I was involved in the design and play-test of each of these levels. Please know these were created from *scratch* and we spent our time making sure the levels were as playable as possible. We were not terribly focused on texturing, other than to give players positional awareness in different parts of each arena.

      Map 6 -- Offices of Death -- Was intentionally designed to be as accurate a representation of the office we worked in as possible. Admittedly, playability was taken as a second priority. We did manage to create working "elevators" and "stairs" to give the illusion you were going up and down floors. I was pretty happy with how we did.

      Considering it was 1996, and no way to simply "Google" different ideas. Your best bet at the time was to jump onto the Usenet and hope you could find a decent board with active members. Other than that, it was pretty much all self-taught.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the other levels. Yes, they are old-school, big arena, style. We spent a LOT of time trying to make sure they were as balanced as possible, with escape routes, and required risks for rewards.

      Excellent stuff for the mid-1990s. Lots of action, good layouts, pretty challenging on UV.    9/10

      For 1995 design is ok. But is VERY short. 3 min in slow pace.  Map is easy af.

      Square rooms, no details, ugly. Secrets aren't flagged as secret. Only for crappy-wad-lovers.

      For 1995, not bad. Some ideas, are really cool, but they're mixed with dumb things. Texture misalignments are common. Overall I had nice time with this.
