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.

Pretty large and open level, few monsters and pretty nice design for a 1994 map imo. Is a enjoyable play.

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.

      The most avant-garde Doom will ever get. Obviously not a WAD for everyone, the core target for such a mod is mainly people who are in video game glitches, corruptions and to some extent, creepypastas (whether that love is ironic or not). Nothing works as it is supposed to. You can hardly understand most of the things that are happening to you. Some of the custom monsters (like the hitscanning corrupted pinky) will put you on edge and keep you paranoid about the ruleset of the game.   The aesthetic of lilith.pk3 is one of a kind, horribly mangling the rendering engine of old ZDoom beyond belief to disform sprites, textures, text and even sound effects. The end result makes close to no sense, your Doom marine sprite is heavily dislocated and looks more like one of those creatures from Alien than a human being and the list goes on and on. The confused looks obviously doesn't always make for clean or concise gameplay, especially in later levels which crank the confusion up to eleven and manipulate the level geometry to do things you thought weren't possible in the game. Even basic things like crushers, slime pits or a turnstile look horribly out of shape and makes the player uncomfortable.   This is essentially what lilith boils down to: an unfamilarity to something we thought we knew by heart, a rising sense of uncomfort as the level design makes less and less sense and offering the player a new perspective on what Doom is. Don't play lilith expecting top-notch Doom gameplay, but play it for the one of a kind experience it offers you. For the better and for the worse, there are no WADs like lilith anywhere and there will never be.

      I think that the combination between shotgun and chaingun combat, and the hitscanner shootouts this WAD offers are really fun and engaging. Pinky Demons are placed in areas where they're not frustrating, (The opposite being something I see very often, nice work Romero :P.) My only issue with this WAD is that one or two of the secrets, specifically those found in the darkened tech room, are sort of esoteric. The one where you have to jump from a platform isn't the worst, but the one for the Mega-Armour is annoying and in my opinion, unfair to find.   Despite these small issues, I think that Phobos Mission Control is an excellent and exciting level to run through, and I applaud Romero for returning to the Doom Community to make new levels.
