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.

      A 1994 map with some of the limitations you might expect, but overall this is well thought out and executed. It's also a very good challenge, certainly on the UV setting. It's actually for E1M1, as another review points out.   There's a Doom 2 conversion of this on the Demon Gate CD compilation, and maybe others.   A bit better than the bare 4 stars. Around 8.5+ out of 10.

      I was surprised to see that this was a WAD made in 1994, it doesn't have many of the mistakes you would find in other WADs, it's fairly nonlinear but never to the point of being a bad maze, and it's a fun short map all around. While there might be a bit more ammo than you'll really need, the WAD is solid for 1994 and might even be fun for deathmatch, maybe. Overall, a 1994 WAD worth playing!

      I had a lot of fun with this. I absolutely love the Doom 3 textures being put to use, too. Excellent atmosphere, and probably one of the more 'fitting' uses of RSKY1 I've seen in quite some time. This level strongly encourages the player to thoroughly explore for secrets, otherwise your ammo count would always end up getting tight.   I would have given this 5 stars, had it not been for two things:   1) As mentioned before, ammo was particularly short towards the beginning. When I first played this I struggled with trying to conserve my Shotgun shells - having a Chaingun instead of having to resort to the Pistol might've been an improvement, although this didn't really bother me too much in all honesty.   2) Towards the end, I had an issue where picking up the yellow keycard made three nearby Imps atop of the cliff-faces unkillable. Not exactly sure what happened here, just make sure to kill them before collecting the key if you wish for a 100% kill rate.   Other than that, this was excellently done. Good job, Romulus!  :D

      Felt so much like the original Wolfenstein and Spear of Destiny. Used just the right balance of new Gzdoom features and old style Wolfenstein play! Excellent.

      Barely playable. You're given bare armaments, and have to contend with using a shotgun against Hellknights and Revenants until you drop down a hole, get stuck in a maze of tunnels filled with enemies, and then find yourself in an outdoor area, still unarmed, but surrounded by enemies. Honestly, I think Sisyphus has it easier.
