Wonky and dated, but quite charming in its offbeat use of ACS features. Worth a look.

A combination of terrible maps and nonsense design sends this hub straight to the recycle bin.

I don't know how I missed this one before. The mapping could use more polish, but the author's puzzles and traps are clever and engaging. There are also some epic large areas, I particularly liked the big multi-floor labyrinth in the fire level. On the downside, some areas look kind of noobish, there are a few death without warning traps, and it follows the same fire-ice-steel pattern as half the Hexen map sets out there. Still worth a look.

Enjoying this game. I love hexen hubs ever since I figured out how they work. (happened this year) Best part in this game is exploring areas and finding all the switches.

      This is a pretty bloody decent level. Well above average. Definitely worth a play. Vanilla friendly too.

      My all time favorite episode 1 replacement wad that keeps the theme & difficulty the same as the original KDITD but with a tiny dash of Episode 2(Lost Souls, Cacodemons & Barons appear in the 2nd half but are rarely used). The only thing that prevents me from giving this a full 5 stars is that E1M8 is too anticlimactic & easier than OG E1M8 but even then this mapset is still worth playing...or replaying on my end ;)   -Philnemba 4.5/5

      Perfect example of why I hate ports. This map could have easily been limit removing vanilla compatible, but instead throws a spanner in the works using unnecessary Boom quirks. Most of the maps are very good to superb - but many are ruined by a critical switch, door or trigger failing to work. A few maps, notably The Crusher, are simply unplayable in my Boom enabled Doomsday with not a single switch working. What could have been a superb megawad has been spoiled by crap. Still give it a 4 for the maps that worked.

      Although there's nothing new to be found here, the good old fashioned meat and potatoes doom gameplay is done well and with mostly stock textures, but with the added difficulty and surprise towards the end.
      The music tracks are very pleasant and also adds to the fun. Recommended.

      Maps are very detailed and varied.  Was fun.
