About This File

While traveling through a desert region, you are ambushed and knocked unconscious by a group of golems. You wake up to find yourself inside a sarcophagus. You push the lid of off the coffin and climb out. You hear the sounds of stone debris being piled up outside the entrance to the tomb. They are sealing you in. At your feet you notice your crossbow. Whoever has put you in here has tossed your weapon on the tomb floor to be sealed in with you. You force the door open and begin fighting your way out of the crypt...

The best Ken Phipps production I've tested. It combines the Dark mountain series's high points with this time a challenging difficulty. Secret areas aren't charted, but it doesn't matter. Good job, 5/5. ~Naan

If you want to see what thoughtful level design looks like, download this wad. Ken has balanced the level very well, grading the difficulty nicely from start to finish. He implemented some really neat ideas for traps, puzzles, and architecture. I can't say enough good stuff about this level. It is a shining example of how intelligent and fun-to-play maps trump ultra-detailed mindless slaughter maps any day. 5/5!

Great map, on the difficult side but not impossible. It's got a great deal of atmosphere and detail. The biggest gripe is the secrets aren't tagged so you'll never really know for sure where they are.

I love desert themed maps, so this was an insta-win, plus it is just a really great, high-qulity map itself with a very great oldschool flair to it.

      More tripe.  Huge badly designed and featureless rooms that give you leg ache just watching going through them. The opposition from monsters is pitiful.

      A busted crock of shit. The map is random scribble, it's insane.  Why do they upload this tripe?  The third screenshot above gives an idea what to expect.

      Consists of some rooms to be opened in key sequence from a central area. Doors are narrow and each reveals a row of monsters waiting for you, and you don't have enough ammo (I had to cheat). No atmosphere, bright lighting, and mostly Wolfenstein-ish cuboid rooms. Technically OK, with minor texture mis-matches. At least his own summary was modest.   Give it a miss.

      cannonball is yet another mapper who will probably take some getting used to when it comes to his maps. I remember hating on Return to Hadron when I first played it, but after subsequent plays it got easier. the same can be said for a lot of his other wads.   while this is my first time playing through Sparta 2, I easily got into cannonball's playstyle. his architecture style is always the same, as are his usage of monsters, basically you'll be running around often in the heat of monsters; the space is wide enough to accomodate this kind of playstyle and you just gotta be quite wary of where projectiles are flying. even if the monster count is low the layouts make things rough. but overall, what I like most about cannonball's maps is how well they can be run through. sure, you're gonna be dealing with a fuckload of carnage in these maps, but they all are very speedrun-friendly which is a plus. notable maps include:   MAP08, which is probably the roughest start in the wad MAP12, which has a false sense of security with its monster count. the two slaughter finales which are both well done.

      I don't pretend to understand any of the promotional material accompanying this map, relating to wizards and the like, and it just seems like a typically unsubtle early offering, albeit on a grand scale. One of the reviews says you can't get out of the Cyberdemon arena once you've teleported into it near the start, but the bad news is that you can. The final room with the Spider Mastermind is quite lively and entertaining, if you persevere that far.   The version of this I played was a Doom 2 conversion, which ran in the MAP10 slot, with some Revenants, chaingunners and Pain Elementals, but if you download the one on this page you'll probably get the original wad.
