About This File

This wad started out as just one level but it was so big I had to break it up into five different levels for smoother game play. It was made primarly for multiplayer cooperative game play. Playing it on skill level 3 is very challenging (when playing a multiplayer game). I think we died anywhere from five to twelve times on each level at skill level 3. There aren't very any complicated puzzles in these levels but there are lots of monsters and some very interesting traps. I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I enjoyed makeing it.

Thumbs down. Design reminds of DooM II PWADs circa 1994--huge, mostly monotextured rooms packed with unsavory entities. By Hexen standards, it is fairly difficult (for the single player, I mean), but veterans of DooM/Heretic shouldn't have any real trouble completing it on skill 4--assuming that these hypothetical players have dementedly high endurance for tiresome gameplay, that is. As someone else so aptly commented on one the Fiffy Hexen WADs, "Hexen isn't supposed to be a slugfest." --TDotW

A repeatable line allows you to have infinite mana by generating more Kraters, and you get all your weapons by the third room, but even so it's fairly challenging... and trying, as a lot of the "difficulty" comes from pulling cheap shots like using earthquakes to throw you over ledges, dropping lifts from under you, etc. It seems like every bad Hexen map (and some otherwise good ones) likes to use traps that make the player plunge to his doom. I guess it was novel at the time. Also, this map is ugly.

      This could've been one of the first 32 level megawads that I played after completing the base games. I've played many more since then, and I can honestly say, for a megawad dating back to 1996, it still holds up brilliantly against a lot of modern wads.    Also @DoomGuy999, about that criticism about maps being coop exclusive... "Most levels were made for co-op play, all levels are playable alone as well."   Not exactly sure what you were expecting after having an explicit statement right there.

      This is a fine map with a lot of work put in it. I really liked the attention to details and the overall atmosphere of the map. The intended  path is a bit hard to decipher at times, but it ends on a high note.

      I don't hate it. It's simple and easy, but also clearly designed instead of just slapped together, even if the author is a beginner mapper from the mid-90s.

      A neat older megaWAD that was made predominately for co-op play:   From the readme:   "Most levels were made for co-op play, all levels are playable alone as well."   It clearly states this, but some people seem confused by this fact, somehow.   Plays just fine in SP, and is how I've played it the three times I've gone through it now.   Yes, it shows its age a bit in 2024, but what WAD from this era doesn't? Features a great soundtrack, too.   Easy 4/5, even in the current climate.

      I really enjoyed the adventure that The Artifact takes you on. The levels are grandiose and intricate, full of interesting set pieces and somewhat obscure secrets. On UV, the difficulty is quite high and unforgiving. The icon of sin fight is a bit too complex for my tastes. Nevertheless, it shows a splendid mastery of design and progression.
