About This File

This is an awesome "1-level-hub" which is tough, beautiful, and complete. The architecture is nice, the enemies are numerous, and it'll give you a good challenge, especially on the top skill level.

Excellent map. The difficulty balance is good, the encounters are interesting, the architecture & texturing are well-done, and the puzzles aren't too cryptic (they actually could've been harder). I see people in the reviews complaining about difficulty finding switches, but I found the puzzles way easier than the original IWAD. My only complaints are its length (could be longer) and the linearity (could be... less so). But overall it's a great way to spend 30 minutes of Hexen.

Cool little level, only gripe is that it's kind of short. Wish there were more.

Decent enough level, didn't even find the last part of the queitus, but I didn't really need it for the last fight anyway. It was a bit anticlimatic. Other fights earlier in the map were more challenging. 3/5 Kristus

I was really enjoying this until I reached the part where u have to fine 3 switches. Found two and when I couldn't find the third, I just shut the damn thing off. I HATE SWITCH HUNTS!!!!!!!! 4/5 for looks, creativity(The author knows his beans). Its gets 2/5 until I find that blasted switch!

nice map, but i had the same problem as the other reviewer: i couldnt find the last of the 3 switches. i had to use a noclip cheat in order to get into the room blocked by the wooden bars. other than that it was a well done map with a good balance between items and enemies.

Not bad, not quite as "tough and beautiful" as the author might think, but it's pretty solid. ******SWITCH SPOILER:****** To open the bars with the reavers behind them, face away from the bars and look on the right pillar in the room where the Bishops were.

Quick bit of fun, but kind of easy for the most part. 3/5

      Pretty good. The combat was fun and design wasn't bad at all.

      Despite its age, nice details and well designed. Way how blue key is hidden is really clever. But map is dark and cramped. Enemies are only imps and hitscanners.

      Pretty good map in E1 base style (except Doom2 monsters) Nice design but there some texture alignment issues.

      Despite the browns and grays that are prominent in this megaWAD, I found it to be fun. I also found it to be quite the challenge. The first map gives you a taste of what to expect in terms of enemy encounters. The author makes good use of mid-tier enemies to apply pressure on the player. Monster count for most of the maps barely breaks the 150 mark but, as said before, the use of mostly mid-tier enemies puts pressure on the player. I also like how the megaWAD handles level progression. Most of the levels you go through consist of caves, cities, islands, and tech bases in space. In fact, there's only one real Hell-like level and even it's within the confines of the moon base you fight through in maps 21 - 30.   About the only gripes I have with this megaWAD are with regards to maps 32, 29, and 30. I know the text file and map 31 give warnings about map 32 but there really should be some kind of alternate exit in map 32 instead of trapping you in place if you don't pass one of the puzzles. I wasn't a fan of how close quarters the IoS fight was in map 29, especially since it can get cramped quickly with monster spawns. Finally, the randomization of what keys spawn during your escape in map 30 isn't fun either. 10 minutes seems like plenty of time but between navigating the vent system (again) without light goggles and dealing with mid-tier enemies, that 10 minutes can get eaten up really quick.   Overall, it's still a fun megaWAD. I'd recommend at least giving it a shot.
