About This File

A UAC facility somewhere in the Pacific didn't report in lately. You are sent to investigate and find that hell broke loose there (What else would you expect). But instead of turning and running away in horror you go in and take them on...

StormCatcher.77

  

I think, for 1996 this map is very stunning... Moment with camera monitor been much memorable. In overall sence, design is simple, but in some places author give more advance to details. I like gameplay without big difficulties, and secrets, that's easy to find. For me is strongest standalone map of 1996 that i know.

Fantastic design with great architecture and very inventive usage of iwad textures. Try not to find the megasphere secret to avoid making it too easy.

Nice map. Looks good, though the gameplay is a little disjointed; I felt like I had reached the exit in rather haphazard fashion, rather than by a logical process.

This is dated February 1996. It's a solid entry in the subaquatic techbase genre. The architecture is simple but clever in places, and there are enough baddies to keep it amusing. It's easy, with lots of health, and baddies you can just run past. Like most of its ilk, the map feels like a sewer processing plant with blue water instead of slime, but that's by-the-by. The ending seems odd - it's very abrupt. Overall the level's not bad though.

For its time, this WAD is probably one of the great one hit wonders... Fun, nonlinear, and actually quite challenging. ~Hank

      It's a very impressive megawad with a nice themed ancient Egypt atmosphere, with very nice choosing of textures to contribute to that theme, very nice architecture and impressive (and very risky) twist on the story going from ancient Egypt to alien spaceships, without using hi-pitched colors like in Ancient Aliens. Also, very tough megawad, if you're masochist enough, you can play it with Complex Doom and add LCA for more doses of pain.

      It's okay. Quite easy due to the abundance of artifacts, mana, & health. The level design is fine, nothing special. The only truly bad part was the unmarked puzzle bookcases, forcing you to wallhump the entire library as a last resort. Otherwise it's pretty simple stuff, running around finding keys and smashing monsters. The texturing and lighting aren't fantastic but aren't noticeably bad either. The only glaring issue is that many windows just show a wall textured with the sky texture rather than an area with a sky ceiling. Yet there are perfectly normal outdoor areas. Perhaps the author only figured it out skies halfway through development? Anyways, this is worth your time if you want an hour or two of simple Hexen fun.

      It's a nice wad overall, nice map design, textures and monster placement, enjoyed playing on D-Touch (GZDoom1.8) with Dude4th weapon mod.  My only complain would be the secrets, they have very few to no clues about their position.  There was a problem on E3M5 on the secrets around the squared starting room with stairs, the wall closes and let me stuck inside, had to use idclip to get out from those secret rooms.

      I recently played through this continuously twice on UV. Overall I feel this is an expertly crafted WAD from start to finish. Beautiful scenery, great soundtrack, and intense gameplay. Maybe a little too intense sometimes, and with that it's probably not a WAD I'll recommend to newbies. If less experienced players absolutely have to try it, I suggest playing on the lower difficulty modes as the included readme suggests. Describing the later maps of this WAD as "brutal" on UV is an understatement to say the least.
