About This File

Congratulations, you've beaten the huge demon at the center of hell. Now you must find your way back out. The demons watched you coming in, and have learned your tactics and weaknesses. They know where you are. The hordes of them present when you destroyed the Icon of Sin are prepared.

This is a series of levels for DOOM ][ designed to be challenging for even the most experienced players. My standard of difficulty is that I should be able to complete the level on Ultra-Violence about half the times I attempt it. On level 18, my standard was that I had to be able to complete the level.

This work was begun in November 1995, and additional levels have have gradually been added. Levels are designed for single-player, Cooperative, and Multiplayer modes. Level 8 has one bug: for some reason monsters have a bad tendency to disappear in the initial stages of the level. This seems to be due to the large amount of monsters which the com- puter must maintain, for once the Arch-Viles and several other creatures are killed, the problem goes away.

These are a bunch of hideously ugly levels. There's no interesting architecture or captivating atmosphere to speak of. The only thing going for them is the hard as nails gameplay. Too bad that hard does not equal good. The gameplay isn't interesting or fair like in Hell Revealed. 1 star.

These maps aren't the greatest looking and have some (sometimes serious ex:map05)faults.But gameplay is extreme fun.I'm sure the doom monsters feel at home in most of these maps. The uncommon use of powerups, the weapons and search for them, the restless monsters, environmental hazards all add to unusual great gameplay. Even with out great skills (but with great nerves) you can finish 1/3 of the maps in the first run. Others are hard or deceiving (06) if you don't know them. 5/5 coldfusio

Excellent gameplay on some good maps. Only the last one is too hard.

      Another abomination in doom mapping. It's crap even in crap category.

      Ugly, rectangular, not enough ammo. In one word: CRAP

      Sound replacement is terrible. Sounds are very annoying. Level also is ugly. Only thing I like is sprites replacement. Kicking nazi asses is same as good like demons ones ;)

      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
