About This File

This level replaces Episode 1, Map 1. It is a stand-alone level and *NOT* intended to blend in with the standard DOOM levels. The skill levels are different than what you may be used to. "Ultra Violence" is a major monster-fest and intended only for experienced mouse users. "Hurt Me Plenty" is more comparable to the standard "Ultra Violence". "Hey, Not Too Rough" and that other one are for you wimpy players...

Yes, this is a good level for '94 using a sort of "prison in caves" theme. There are varied rooms and areas with a lively monster population to quell and as mentioned above the soulsphere sequence is cute and relatively intricate. A secret is required to access the blue key, but this is in the same room and easily found. Looks-wise the map lacks variety in textures, though the marble hall leading to the redstone area looks half decent. None of it is an eyesore and the map is fun to boot. Worth a play!

Early 1994 map, so rated as such. Underground level in E1M1 style. Layout is varying, there is some nice decoration, and ambiance is good. Gameplay @ UV is quite good, challenging and varying, and has some nice tricks. Note that in 1994 most players didn't have a mouse, which made it even more challenging - but imo always fair. Overall: for that time quite good, and even in 2015 worth a play for nostalgia lovers, so solid 4*.

This is a pretty good early wad - the design is tasteful although very bland, but there's no shortage of action, and there are a couple of clever bits. The section with the soulsphere made me smile. It becomes more grandiose as it goes on, and the ending has a clever forced perspective corridor. The biggest problem is that you can run past a lot of the second half of the level. And what the f is a "hollaback girl"?

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
