About This File

My first WAD. Designed for single player mode with some nice surprises in it. Up until you get the red key it has a strange resemblance to where I work. In fact that Baron seems to be in my bosses office ;)

It's a pretty fun map, and I really enjoyed the final area. It's certainly worth trying.

Bad: Inconsistent texture themes; Texture misalignments; Some tutti-frutti; Some bare rooms; Unpegged door tracks; Final battle can be run past with ease. Good: Many tricky traps; Lots of action and some good fights; Ammo is judged pretty well. Overall: Certainly better than your average "recreation of a place I work/live at" level. The ugliness and overall simplicity hold it back, but there's some decent action, here. 2/5 -VV

This is a (very) early level, one of the first dozen or so in the archive. It's so old that the author has a university email address, at Cambridge no less. On a technical level it's simplistic, although a cut above most levels from 1994 - I assume the early uploads to the archive were the cream of the contemporary crop. There's a decent amount of action, and a fun ending battle, although you can just run through it. Good for a first level, espec. for 1994.

I presume the "CAVLAB" in the name refers to the Cavendish Laboratory, though I can't say I would have recognized it from the wad. Decent map; above average gameplay.

An enjoyable map with mixed themes, there are plenty of monsters in the last room and while you can run past them if you want, the fight is winnable for those who do not like playing chicken. Although this is similar to many office building style maps there are areas here that look different and so make this one stand out from the crowd. It is simple but fun and I would say this is average at best, worth a play you might like it more than I did 3/5.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.

      Absolutely ludicrous, Now I need a new keyboard. Technically as bad as a wad can be, surely deliberate. I like to check out low-rated wads, so it's a pity that some clowns gave this  (and other bad ones) 5 stars, because averaged with correct low scores they end up with a middling rating and can be missed.

      Would not play with PRBoom, with errors about missing files : FluidR3_GM.sf2 and STARTAN2.  These were not provided in the zip file.
