The first map was very easy, but thankfully the difficulty was stepped up a little bit in the second one. I think it would have looked better if you used traditional Heretic textures instead of using the sand colour theme that came from the EgyptSOC.

Sadly no.

Hey, I played M4. I killed everything, but there doesn't seem to be any way to exit the map?

 

The final fight was very easy. A single Heresiarch is kind of a pushover, even more so with Heretic weaponry than it is in Hexen. You've got the right idea backing it up with other monsters, but I think the fight still feels a bit undercooked. Combined with the fact that there's way more than enough space to move around, the Heresiarch is down in that pit area and it can't get onto the high ground but the player can, and the fact that you get loaded up fully on all ammo, weapons, armor, and health before even entering the arena, all makes it very simple. I didn't use a single artifact and only lost about one flask's worth of health.

That was pretty cool! Biggest downside is that it was too short. :)

This was amazing! I found the first level rather tough(???), though that's probably because this was my first time playing Heretic ever. But Level's 2 and 3 were spectacular, and I had a lot of fun! Plenty of monsters and dangers (and I loved the terminology/names in your levels, haha). I find each level is a big inspiration, as I have a massive Pharaoh's Tomb-like level (for Doom 2) I've been working on for awhile myself. You've definitely helped give me some insight on a design standpoint, so thanks!

 

Although I hope you do make the last stage more difficult (or if possible, editing the boss' stats?), but I do appreciate what you were going for. With all that said, I wanna see more! C:

Played through your wad, awesome work man! I always wanted to play Egyptian-styled wads like this.

I used somewhat different approach and loaded it with High Noon Drifter mod, I recorded a video if you wish to see the result. :)

I am waiting for it too. If you're in search of textures, there is Duke Nukem 3D mod SOTA with nice Greek tiles:

@Mere_Duke I love it when people play my maps with other mods,that makes every playthrough a bit different :D
Also those textures look really cool,maybe i will use them in SeSh 2 (I don't want to call it SS) i want SeSh 2 to be much much better than the original so i am working on a Heretic episode right now to sharpen my mapping skill for it (Just got done with Map01 today lol)

@Master O You need to wait untill the sequel is out for that :P

Good, it wouldn't be Serious Sam without them or those pumpkin-head chainsaw wielding enemies from Serious Sam: The Second Encounter.

So will you make egyptian maps for Doom in the future?

Probably, though you will not be able to compare them to the awesomeness that is called Epic 2
