About This File

This is my first level, but don't let that put you off... hey, it even has an exit :). Seriously, it's gotten good reviews from some well known Wad authors. Try it out.

This level is rather difficult in the higher skill modes and is not suited for beginners in any skill setting. I tried to design it such that the higher the skill setting, the more secrets you would need to find in order to complete the level. WATCH YOUR AMMO and remember, there's more than one way to kill a monster!

This is the first release of this wad to the internet. All previous releases have been to compuserve. This wad has nothing to do with the Quake "Soldier of Fortune" levels. I didn't even know they existed when I first released this wad (July, 97).

The insta-kill traps, traps in general, and puzzles really killed my enjoyment of this level. :\

that puzzle seems to involve math so it wasn't hard for me. also the map was quite fun and I enjoyed it's puzzling moments.

Quite nice. I like a binary puzzle, and others too. I like wooden textures and they are quite often used here (as this being a mansion is not that surprising). I couldn’t solve all the puzzles (how to return from left side of the sewers, or how to get to alcoves with arachnotrons?) so the rating is only 4. Also, I had to skip killing some monsters due to lack of ammo. Luckily I had BFG, so Cyberdemon wasn’t much of a deal.

Really hard, cheap traps, good layout though. Stuff like enemies behind solid midtextures and completely undetectable insta-kill traps. Don't go for the radsuit in the room after the stairs.

This is not hard because of its difficulty, it is hard because of the cheapness. Doom is not some platformer made by a wapanese guy with problems. Cheapness detracts from a fun experience, which is why HR is difficult but fun because it doesn't rely on insta-kill traps and hidden high-power monsters.

Basically, a big "fuck you" to the player.

Haven't voted for that? So few votes? This is kinda hard at times but there are some great ideas inside. I like the binary riddle amongst others. Possibly the best WAD from a female mapper. 5/5 - Optimus

That's preety great but preety hard for me! Cool architecture, riddles with some additional gfx and text to help you, great original ideas, a bit too much searching though till you understand how to finish the level..

Fun and difficult map that honestly won't kill you if you pay attention to your surroundings. I managed to break the yellow key room somehow which is unfortunate, but I'm gonna go ahead and give this 4 stars just for being very intelligently balanced and also to balance out the kneejerk low ratings given above. Really cool, guys.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
