Rated 2.5 Earthbase 3, MAP01. A compact single doom level. Three buildings with three keys, laid out as bunkers, play progressing from building to building according to keys. Mixture of stone and computer, adjacent. Some computers are chopped off to put doors through. Stairs and objects are out of scale, feels like giants lived there. Tough to start, with inadequate ammo, forcing some drastic measures to survive. The usual key on a pedestal trap, several times.

A goodly bit of combat. The mancubuses don't do anything -- they just sit there, no matter how much you hurt them, waiting to be killed. Is that a technical problem, or the kid's idea of a feint or something?

This is dated June 1998. It's a fun techbase / castle-style map, that starts off with a nice lot of carnage. It's actually pretty hard until you clear out the first zone, with lots of hitscan monsters and a couple of archviles. The design has some good lighting effects and attention to detail (the author ended his Doom career doing one of the less self-indulgent parts of Gothic99). As noted, all the Mancubi are stuck; perhaps they work in vanilla Doom(?).

A good challenge, it took 3 tries on ultra violence to beat it, it was fun. The mancubuses for some reason were placed in such positions that they cannot move and end up being unable to attack.. I don't know if this was deliberate or not... 4/5 ~Mike Reiner

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.
