Bugs: If you shoot too much switches at a time in the dungeon that is in the south, DOOM MAY bomb out with some kind of switch-overflow error. Normally this won't happen.

There was a spot which kept causing a VISPLANES error: the door which has to be opened with the blue key. If you'd stand next to the door and turn around, DOOM would bomb out quite often with a VISPLANES error. To fix this I have moved the side walls inwards (creating a sort of niche). The error seems to have been removed by this action (mail me if I'm wrong!).

very interesting map, not a fan of the gameplay but design is pretty well made.x
Why do people assume dozens of lost souls in waves somehow make a map more "fun"? A potentially good map ruined by pure stupid.x

I consider this to be among my favorite of the '94 and '95 individual map releases. A lot of junk came out during these years, but this map is fairly detailed, and the game play is still challenging. The boss battles were well done.x
November 1995. You fight 192 baddies in a good-looking E2-style castle. It's switch-hunty and by Christ there are a lot of lost souls - they're especially irritating without having access to the double shotgun to wipe the smile off their flaming faces - but the gameplay doesn't mess about and there's lots of action. The spider arena at the end looks splendid, although it's odd that the spider mastermind is outside the actual arena. Seven plus six is thirteen.x
I have to admit I'm impressed by the levels and the difficulty. The bunny head on the spike was lolz! xDx
good jobx
Good appearance and play. Recommended.x
