About This File

3 level WAD set in a castle environment. Excessive attention given to the appearence of the levels (texture selection, alignment, lighting, etc...), but game play does not suffer (some great battle areas!).

I use a P90 machine, so I imagine some areas may run slowly on underpowered machines.

an easy but visually stunning levelset from 1996. i can't imagine how incredible this must've looked back in the day - the lighting is phenomenal for the time. the texturing is simple, but pleasing, and it pulls off the castle theme quite nicely. the only bad parts about the wad is a bug at the end of map03 which prevents anyone on uv from progressing to the exit, and the fairly simple gameplay, even for the time. it's more to show off the looks than anything, so unless you wanna see the best lighting 1996 had to offer (like i did) then it's not gonna be an entirely fulfilling eperience

Should be named 0 ways to die as this give 0 challenge even on UV, all levels can be completed in about 20 minutes in first run. I ran into some bug (or maybe just my stupidity overlooked sth) in the last level, where I could not activate teleporter to the last room. On the bright side, visually really pleasant wad that would make nice first three levels of some megawad.

Pretty damn good for the time. The levels look kind of drab but maintain a cohesive theme. The third and final level has a couple decent final fights, but nothing to involuntarily soil your long-johns over.

Short 3 map mini-episode with amazing details. Castle theme rocks.

A fine and perfectly serviceable mapset. There's solid architecture, good grasp on doom gameplay ( a bit on the easy side but plenty of cool encounters to back it up) and impressive lighting (even with today's standards!).

It's not anything groundbreaking, just small, short and fun mapset. Doom antiquarians rejoice!

Short and relatively nice-looking set for it's time. Plays alright, though pistol start balance does make me raise my eyebrows. More enjoyable to experience continuously. It's OK. 2/5

Pretty enjoyable. It's old, so the difficulty isn't very high but it looks quite nice, and I liked the way the levels flow. Unfortunately the teleporter destination near the end of Map 3 is disabled for UV, easily fixed with Doom Builder though. Pretty excellent compared to other stuff I've tried from the early days of Doom 2.

a little fun, three level set. MAP03 could have the best had it not been for the teleport bug on UV.

Dated 1996, but looks more like an experimental wad from 1994, so rated as such. Layouts are overall simple, and looks like author just tried something. Texture use is quite spare but mostly works. Decoration is overall simple but nice on some places. Gameplans simply do not work, and map03 is clearly not tested @ UV. Overall: quite amateurish, but as editors like DB2 did not yet exist in those quite slow P90 times (even the cpu of my fridge looks faster ;-)): 3/5 for the try.

A fairly nice mapset with sparse 1996 visuals, though the lighting details help in fleshing it out. I wish the author was a bit more willing to use darkness instead, because even the shadows here are pretty bright. The gameplay is a bit too easy most of the time.

A very good-looking pwad from 1996, though it is too short. Lighting effects like this wad's are actually pretty standard nowadays, so it might seem less impressive, but give it a shot anyways. 4/5

Very nice wad but I'm thankful that Hackneyed told us about the teleporter bug in Map 03 since I did in fact play on UV and found I couldn't exit into the final room. So I had to play the Map over again on Medium difficulty.

This wad is in my opinion epic. Not only does it have great lighting and gameplay for '96, but it is special to me as the first wad I ever downloaded and played. 5/5

He used a P90 machine... I probably played this on a 486DX and had issues lol. Anyways... a pretty neat wad... historical if anything. Nice lighting effect for the time. Most custom wads from this time sucked. This one didn't. 4/5

      This wad is so hard, you gotta ballsy playing with nuts, but it's worth it. After hours of sucking at nuts, and believe me I sucked A LOT, I ended up loving nuts a lot. would recommend if you want a rough experience, with rock solid design, and balls to the walls action. I personally love nuts. This wad is cool too I guess

      Ah, yes, the ultimate benchmark tool for anyone looking for a decent computer. A fine piece of technology (I didn't even realize that this WAD had somewhat of a plot, despite its joke-ish nature), indeed, with a bonus feature by the greatest rock song on Earth.   5/5, would play again with anything but a potato.
