I haven't played the original, which doesn't seem to be in the archive. Map01 is the main course. It's a large and ambitious nuclear plant thing. Very wandery, the puzzles are often frustrating, but I enjoyed it; the map feels like an adventure, and there's some clever pre-source port detailing. Map02 is similar but less inspired, it feels like a retread of UAC_DEAD (overturned truck, "crystal sector" stairway), Map03 is a kind of E1M8-a-like.

Randomly placed switches opening seemingly unconnected doors. Doors open then some randomly lock again. After finding a switch I can't remember having to back-track so much to try every previously locked door for a very long time and it was all too damned frustrating to be enjoyable. I really couldn't be arsed to try maps 2 & 3.

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.

      Starts with all monsters with their backs to you, and you might as well leave it that way and just listen to the music. One big rectangular room with no finish switch. They couldn't even make the rectangle properly - freehand I guess. Kill the monsters if you want, it's easy.

      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.
