About This File

Ultimately a Level for the single player. BUT !!!! Also is good for Deathmatch, and co op. Great for 4 player, although I have never played more than two. :( Lots of nice little spots to stand back, and realise just how beatiful DOOM really is. The Reason I don't add all my levels together is because, there single levels, single ideas. I name them AXE, because you will know there from me. STORY You arrive early to the Starbase out on the far reaches of the explored Galaxy, In sector 777. Having been sent here, to investergate the First and only Worm hole. You are at the least to say, excited. Unbeknowinced to you, the "Worm hole", is really a rip in Dimentional space. Providing a gateway to a Place that wasn't meant to be investergated. Let alone Destroyed. !!!!!

The first of the AXE series uploaded to /idgames, it appears, and the looks do reveal that in the very beginning. Texturing starts off with monotonous stone all over the place, and then the theme continually shifts throughout. The gameplay, however, is a good notch above the subsequent AXE5, with the highlight being the numerous clever uses of teleporters to catch the player off guard (the outdoor battle is particularly memorable!). Given that, I had enough fun to play it again. Good stuff. 7/10 - Snakes

This is dated June 1996. It's part of the author's long-forgotten AXE series, which was generally good. This is a solid although unsubtle stone techbase in which you fight 304 baddies. Despite the monster count it's no Hell Revealed. It could have been hard, but you have loads of ammo, and the monsters are spread out; there are some good traps near the end but the secret BFG is silly. It's a good example of a level that would benefit from a modern revision.

      Dear Doomkid,

      I was involved in the design and play-test of each of these levels. Please know these were created from *scratch* and we spent our time making sure the levels were as playable as possible. We were not terribly focused on texturing, other than to give players positional awareness in different parts of each arena.

      Map 6 -- Offices of Death -- Was intentionally designed to be as accurate a representation of the office we worked in as possible. Admittedly, playability was taken as a second priority. We did manage to create working "elevators" and "stairs" to give the illusion you were going up and down floors. I was pretty happy with how we did.

      Considering it was 1996, and no way to simply "Google" different ideas. Your best bet at the time was to jump onto the Usenet and hope you could find a decent board with active members. Other than that, it was pretty much all self-taught.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the other levels. Yes, they are old-school, big arena, style. We spent a LOT of time trying to make sure they were as balanced as possible, with escape routes, and required risks for rewards.

      Excellent stuff for the mid-1990s. Lots of action, good layouts, pretty challenging on UV.    9/10

      For 1995 design is ok. But is VERY short. 3 min in slow pace.  Map is easy af.

      Square rooms, no details, ugly. Secrets aren't flagged as secret. Only for crappy-wad-lovers.

      For 1995, not bad. Some ideas, are really cool, but they're mixed with dumb things. Texture misalignments are common. Overall I had nice time with this.
