About This File

A return to Phobos base: General Union Aerospace's Hazardous Materials Processing Center (HAZMAT PROC). Big, complex deathmatch level. No dead ends, all weapons, lots of ammo. Primarily for deathmatch, try playing in teams; there's a lot of passages that can only open from one side-- opportunities for daring rescues. If you're only playing two players, it might take a while to hunt down your opponent.

Reviewed as SP map. Quite enthusiastic, but in too many aspects too primitive. Confusing layout, too many hidden doors, way too repetitive, a shitload of unmarked doors. Author does not understand the concept of unpegging or is not interested in it. Hopeless gameplan (iff any), way too much ammo @ UV. Overall for what it offers, the map is 5-10 times too large. Rated as 1995 map: awful + 1 for the effort = small 2*, else 1.

This is dated June 1995. It's a large and complex tech-castle in a classical E1 style; there's no texture alignment at all, but it has a good retro feel and almost 300 baddies. The layout is nicely non-linear, and you can wander about for ages. Which is a problem, because unfortunately the whole level bogs down in relentless key-and-switch hunting; it's one of those maps where a button at one end of the map lowers an anonymous wall at the other end.

      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.
