About This File

"Burg Nideck ist im Elsaá der Sage wohlbekannt, die Höhe, wo vorzeiten die Burg der Riesen stand; sie selbst ist nun verfallen, die Stätte wst und leer, und fragst Du nach den Riesen, du findest sie nicht mehr." -- Das Riesenspielzeug, Adelbert von Chamisso

Castle Nideck ist so large and crudely hewn that it is said to have been built be giants in prehistoric times. And prehistoric it sure is - it's been sitting deep in the mountains for as long as mankind can remember, dark and foreboding. A few months back, activity was reported inside the castle - screams and moans, weird lights and evil laughter. It was discounted as the usual talk, until the day a whole village disappeared and you were sent to investigate...

Note: While this is not on of these Look-how-many-monsters-I-can-throw-at- you WADs, it _is_ very difficult in UltraViolent, especially in Multi- Player games. Try Hurt Me Plenty first, it's the level I designed it for.

One of several early levels where you start off outside a big square castle, and then you go in and kill the monsters etc. It's quite good for 1994; no attention paid to theme, textures etc but it's old-fashioned open-plan fun, not too taxing. I like it when the Cacodemons die - I find it erotic. They gasp and lose control as their die. It's like orgasm.

I'm sure it would of been an interesting concept for 1994 but today it just comes across as too easy, too underdetailed and just boring to play.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
