Conceptually a pretty cool map, have a nice retextures of wall using the ice floor, giving more context to the main theme of icy cavern present here, the layout is good, some room design are pretty good for the age it was done (especially the starting area) but it's unfortunately ruined by two things: excessive slippery floors and a no exit lava pit, as well as the random nature of switches placement that activates something... somewhere. Where is not given to you to known, the same things happens for a secret (mandatory) corridors areas that connect the said grave. But despite this, is not that bad, actually!

This is one of the first PWADs to use ice extensively. Unfortunately it's a frustrating level, too hard on Black Plague. It's a castle in an ice/lava kingdom, and you slip on ice while monsters sap your health. You barely get any items, so the gameplay tends to be high on the trial & error scale until you figure out how to deal with the troubles. Eventually it becomes obvious that it's a deathmatch level enabled for single-player too, the gameplay falling flat at that point.

Def. not a run and gun style map, so anyone looking for that kinda stuff can skip this.

Otherwise, the map is a small ice themed level, that starts of slow and if ya wake the maulotaur too early with infighting, ya might as well restart.

The location of the blue key and the wind on the bridge both tripped me up the first time around, but apart from that it's a decent level.

This is from May 1995. It looks strange if you run it with Doom, because it's a Heretic level. I hate Heretic. The gameplay consists of firing your silly little wand - peew, peew - at silly little flying red things. This level starts off on some slippery ice, which irritated me, because slippery ice was a cliche in the 1980s. There is some lava etc but my time is too precious to even look up Heretic's IDCLIP, so I say good day to you, Castle01.

      Fantastic work, music and all and literally MY personal favorite wad of all time. Forget all the Jurkoffs at the bottom with the negative reviews they have no real taste in wads honestly speaking. Play this wad from start to finish you will have no regrets. 5 Stars.

      This is probably the most perfectly ammo balanced map ever on HMP. Pretty damn good.

      Yet another example of a relatively enjoyable map ruined by a pointless and incomprehensible teleport maze. There is only ever one real result with this type of garbage - user irritation often resulting in game quits and file deletion. Why do people do this? Do you assume your being "creative"? No, your being lazy and stupid. Future mappers - don't do this if you want people to leave nice comments.

      Found this again thanks to Er\IWA, it's a overall good and fun deathmatch mapset made of speedmaps by various users from Zandronum forums, the mapset have it's high and lows and really shows them (looking with disappointment at MAP21) and lots of maps are inspired by the great classics (Greenwar, Memento Mori, even Eternal Doom -or is better say Eternal DM?) and with some weird fetish for pyramid structures in the main arena. Fun megawad overall.

      Found this thanks to Er\IWA, incredible that this mapset is being so unknown that I've come in knowledge of this only by random picking! It's worth of staying with the classic like Greenwar or Exec, no joking! Sure there's some problems like multiple spawning points in one point, a weird weapons progression and all that 90s wackiness, but despite this is a fun, frenetic and very enjoyable ride with good map layouts and fun gameplay. Worth checking!
