About This File

This well designed level has quite a few areas to discover, it takes me (the author) about 18 minutes to complete the entire level with 100% kills and all secrets found in skill 4 mode.

Please note that you must be alert in locatating certain switches and doors that might not look like the ones you're used to - this is by design for reasons of creativity. Different, but well done.

The texture alignment is outstanding (nice wall switches) and to top it off, there are a ton of new graphics contained in this file...

Don't be surprised if you discover some familiar bitmaps along the way...There are some textures in this file from "Rise of the Triad" by Apogee Software, as well as Doom 1 and 2 from id Software. I thought it would be wonderful to see all my favorite textures in one level...well, here it is and I'm sure you'll agree that they all look great together.

I would recommend at least a 486DX2/66 with 8 Megs of RAM to enjoy the level fully. This is the system I used to write Wyvern Heights - it runs great on my computer, no slowing down (thanks again RMB!). I wish every author would use it...

Oh, one more thing...Please, no codes! There is ample ammo and if you're semi-experienced at Heretic then it will be a good WAD for you to practice your combat stategies...just don't cheat.

Meh. This looks promising at first, but it's not really that great. The ripped textures are not so good, and the map just feels kind of rambling; it's not coherent and the object placement doesn't really give strong gameplay. The IWAD levels are better than this.

Same as above, but still easy, I haven't even used a single inventory item to complete the map. 3/5. ~Naan

      Starts off mildly amusing in an inane way. The rapid plunge into stupidity leaves one awestruck, providing an indelible mark of wonder on the player.    Pros: Map 21 is aptly named.   Cons: everything

      Awesome stuff, The description gave way to more imagination while playing the wad, love it. Textures looked beautiful. It presents quite a challenge for the weary heretic.

      A challenging but well thought out and balanced map. Skill is rewarded and mistakes punished.

      Sorry , I'm too lazy to translate my long review in french without using a translator , so I will summarize in one sentence : It's a really chalenging map with a moody but magical atmosphere , I really loved it.   You can check my detailed review here , I hope google translator will work well :   http://doomfrance.forumactif.com/t4691-review-maps-de-paul977#141921   Here is my demo in Ultra-violence , I didn't have enough ammo to kill the very last vile. :(   DEMO

      This is an amazing piece of work. I got pissed trying to find the red key but thats just my own dumbness I guess. You got slopes and sectors that spin and everything!
