About This File

This is a level for Heretic. A group of Disciples of D'sparil are holding a ceremony to resurrect their fallen leader. In order to perform this ceremony they have taken control of a sacred elven church and killed its inhabitants. You must find the key, unlock its doors and put an end to their foul ceremonies. Of course, their monstrous minions are not going to let you just walk up and take the key, so you will have to deal with them first.

A pretty good level, though not totally remarkable. It can be deceivingly hard at some moments, so be careful.

Very good user-created wad, especially for its time. Works perfectly in ZDoom. Some rooms are just a bit too squarish and under-detailed, but no less detailed than the original Heretic was. Perfect amount of ammo and items to monster ratio. The exit and level progression isn't obvious, which is a plus. One problem is unmarked doors.

Extremely bugged. Kept crashing DOS heretic (which is what it was designed for) with MAXPLATS errors. I raised the limit to an obsence amount, but it still happened. However, the map look detailed, maybe it plays okay on a modern port. But, since it won't play on the original, what it was designed for, I can only give it 1 star for the layout.

      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.
