A bit better than Temple of Saturn. It reminds me of Cesspool from Memento Mori where keys and stuff were hidden in secrets. It's also more interesting, but I never felt a real culmination of monster ambushes, the whole map was bland and forgettable.

This is an old level from August 1995, the Year Before DVD(tm). It's a pleasant trip down memory lane. It's a techbase in a desert. As promised, there is a bed (it opens a secret), but thankfully no toilets. The gameplay is vintage amateur 1995 - about a hundred weak monsters that you shotgun. You have loads of ammo and health. The keys are hidden in secrets, which is odd. It's a mild level for the period, hard to dislike although very forgettable.

A clear step up from the author's previous work (baal2), this map is small and quick, but still not especially memorable. The setting is some sort of base, with moderate resistance. The beginning looks nice, but pretty soon this turns into a mix of whatever came to Bob's mind. 6/7 secrets is maximum, due to a minor design flaw. Skip it. --2/5

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.
