About This File

the setting is open-field/city-like, bright light, many buildings, high demand of processing power.

This is my first attempt at creating WAD files for DOOM. The creation of this WAD was made possible by the two great programs called DEU 5.1 and BSP 1.1.

In this WAD I made my attempt at the creation of multi-floor buildings using teleporters along staircases. The only 'true' teleporter is the one in the beginning, all subsequent teleport effects should be ignored (if you don't look at the map too often the illusion of multi-floor is better....) The jammed door that you will find helps creating the effect of two separate floors.

I also tried to concentrate in creating a realistic (and also playable) lighting conditions, I wanted to have buildings cast shadows, but that would require more hours of sector hacking and many more 2-sided LineDefs which would slow down the game a lot, so I dropped the idea. As for the difficulty, this is an average level, the experienced player will have no problem to complete it.

Extremely fun, extremely well designed map...That is if you actually try to -play- the map, instead of go all sunder on it, or just play it looking for detail, like most of the reviewers have. Extremely atmospheric, extremely nice pacing, and overall just a really awesome map, especially for 1994. The ending kinda disappointed me though, really had me there for a second!

This is by far the most athmospheric map ever done for doom. Its true value is revealed only in coop play. I love it.

Ok map, not that great in my opinion, some of the texture schemes are a bit... weird.

Ah the memories...this is probably the first PWAD I ever played (or one of the small group of my first PWADS), and if I'm not wrong it was supposed to be "paired" with "Mountain of fire" :-) 5/5 just for the nostalgia.

This is from May 1994. It's basically a simple town-style map, with lots of one-room buildings. Most have a few power-ups, some have crate mazes. There's a surprisingly large amount of monsters, although they're mostly weak, and you can just chaingun 'em. The design is bland, with a few clever bits - information screens and some multi-storey staircase / teleports. Overall it's nostalgic, but should have been condensed to a quarter the size.

Hardy a classic. It's just a bunch of square, gray rooms arranged in a semi-realistic way. 3/5

Bad: Dull, unchallenging gameplay; Many drab, useless rooms. Good: Large, semi-non-linear layout; No noticeable errors; Crude but interesting room-over-room effects. Funny: The two dead, armored Marines in bed together. Overall: There are worse ways to kill a few minutes. 2/5 -VV

As for me, it's just a bit of nostalgia - I remember playing this map in 1995... Then I rediscovered it by sheer luck few months ago...

      Starts off mildly amusing in an inane way. The rapid plunge into stupidity leaves one awestruck, providing an indelible mark of wonder on the player.    Pros: Map 21 is aptly named.   Cons: everything

      Awesome stuff, The description gave way to more imagination while playing the wad, love it. Textures looked beautiful. It presents quite a challenge for the weary heretic.

      A challenging but well thought out and balanced map. Skill is rewarded and mistakes punished.

      Sorry , I'm too lazy to translate my long review in french without using a translator , so I will summarize in one sentence : It's a really chalenging map with a moody but magical atmosphere , I really loved it.   You can check my detailed review here , I hope google translator will work well :   http://doomfrance.forumactif.com/t4691-review-maps-de-paul977#141921   Here is my demo in Ultra-violence , I didn't have enough ammo to kill the very last vile. :(   DEMO

      This is an amazing piece of work. I got pissed trying to find the red key but thats just my own dumbness I guess. You got slopes and sectors that spin and everything!
