This wad seems to be a compilation. Anyway, here goes the per-level reviews:

  1. An average dock level. Water hurts. There's an unusual way to wade through this water to open some barriers. Overall pretty blocky and not that well done. It's plagued by REJECT errors causing most monsters to be passive against you.
  2. A dungeon level made of copy-pasted layouts. Overall much better and more slaughter-like than the previous map. Relies on switches and passages for the greatest part.
  3. An even better and much harder level. This one involves some wicked layouts of passages and lifts, and uses symmetry to its advantage.

Overall, some super challenging levels but not very strongly structured, rather on the more abstract side.

Excellent work for '95 yet the "DooM" inscription in e1m2 makes me think of a conversion... Weird things : water hurting + no need of the blue key to open the blue door on e1m1, etc. Overall an impressive level for the time. Magma/07-2011 - 4/5

Average levels with a good level of difficulty. Considering it's a 1995 wad I'll forgive the cubic appareance and poverty of the architecture. The only things odd I have found is the water hurting in E1M1 and a place where I can be blocked (have to use kitty code) in E1M3. Good (early) job. 4/5. ~Naan

      A relaxing episode 1 replacement. Solid in it's simplicity.

      I love it but For multiplayer do the gloves on the sprites appear black? If not can you make them appear black so the sprites can match the first person perspective?

      A really boring "slaughtermap" sort of map with a not very good layout and broken teleports. Played it on vanilla doom and doom+ exes on dosbox, it plays fine. Also, is E2M2 have an exit? I didn't want to know because i've get bored while playing at it, sorry.

      Despite working alongside Billy for a few years now, and being a big fan of what he does, I hadn't gotten around to checking this out. Turns out I was doing myself a disservice! This is a lot of fun to explore, with many twists and turns, and some pretty intricate secrets. A very strong start for him, but I can see where he's grown since. In particular, the progression and distribution of weapons can lead first-time players to be quite underpowered for a long time, depending on where they go first, and my initial playing experience suffered as a result. Likewise, the way secrets are woven through the map and partially limited based on progression makes for a great story telling device, but does rather impede your chance to experience everything if you don't know when things are available and what will stop them being so.   Saying all of that, the game play is generally solid, the additional textures, artwork and music choices are all on point and the level looks very nice, so I'm more knocking a star off because of the open-ended progression not working out perfectly for me on my play through, than anything else. Well, that and I know he's gone on to bigger and better things, of course! Great stuff, highly recommended.

      Some large trapping maps and some tricky small ones. I didn't find Eye 1 the episode replacement with that creepy green imp. My favourite its the first one. Awesome classic original midis.
