About This File

You are sent to do battle for the humans to the Doom2 (tm) base on the planet Altair1. You will not fail! This is the first level in the Altair series of PWADS. It was designed to be the first level and takes a little longer than ID's first level. It was also designed with fast play action ultra violence in mind, but there are two easier difficulty settings. I don't and have never played deathmatch, so it isn't supported. The level does include player positions but no ammo or weapons for deathmatch. It does include ammo and weapons for single player and cooperative play.

You start out in a lower portion of the base. Play proceeds through winding corridors and rooms. Along the way you battle imps, chaingunners, shotgunners and troopers. Sorry NO Cyberdemons! (This is meant to be level one you know.) There are many secret doors which are identified by their different textures. The secret doors do NOT show up as doors on the map. The level has the usual items, and many surprises. (Well... the guys at work liked it! :-) )

This is dated August 1995. It's the first in a series of three maps; the others are id=6670 and id=6833. This one's a techbase / dungeon that feels like a 3D maze. Ordinarily this would be a bad thing, but there's a good lot of action, and it never feels totally aimless. It's repetitive (the same secret is used several times) and I could have done without the crushing ceiling trap, but overall it's not bad.

First level of an interesting series. Nothing bad about it. Seemingly the author's concern is tunnels ala Descent, with lifts, doors and crossovers. It gets a 4/5. IC

      Better play Wolfenstein 3D with keyboard only, thousand times in a row.

      Why the hell have I not been using this. Incredible, 5 stars.

      It was difficult for me, but I enjoyed it, a few more ammo pick ups and maybe some health too, but other than that it's a good level.

      I should've heeded the warnings from the other reviews...

      Horrible and unenjoyable, it's what I can say about this megawad.  Does it really need to be archviles and cyberdemons in every corner and tight corridors, ambushing with nowhere to go?  Yes, textures are very monotonous, and you got corridor after corridor with same floor/ceiling height.  It's extremely annoying to hunt for that switch that will let you continue, and, surprise!  They're hidden inside the walls without being secrets and no hints where to look for, even with ALLMAP cheat you get lost very easily
