Description: It is a fight every step of the way, and (IMHO) more what one might have expected of e2m1, from the beating you take at the end of the 1st mission. It's got some pretty tricky things in it...but the overall difficulty I'd rate at about 60%-80% (doable). The next installments will be much more difficult. I really want to add a Metallica soundtrack to the whole level to set a more, er, violent tone (this may come along as I find time... any takers?) Let me know what you think (constructive criticism and voluminous praise much more welcome than flames!)
Base: New level from scratch
Build time:
Editor(s) used: DEU32
Bugs: A few of the last minor, tedious texture alignment chores are left undone...but no actual bugs have been found in extensive SINGLE-PLAYER play testing (please report any you may find...there shouldn't be any). The multi-player modes are not as well thought- out as they should be, and the wimp modes are just thrown in for completeness.

Not bad attempt. Architecture is simple, decoration absent, but gameplay @ UV is for that time nicely strong - and manageable. Overall rated as 1994 map: 3* average.x
Pleasantly Challenging classic map....idea of placing ammo under crusher is nice...pyramid area was a beauty...x
A suprisingly good effort for a '94 map. Sure my cats vomit looks better than it but its gameplay is fast, furious and action packed. Certainly worth a download if you don't mind the lack of detail 3/5 - phil1984x
A tech map with lots of ammo for lots of monsters. Very violent, and very fun. There are some attempts at varying the architecture, including a nice "pyramid" section, but the whole thing still feels very bare. That doesn't matter too much, though, since you're constantly fighting. The difficulty is pretty firmly in the medium category, unless you find some of the many secrets, in which case it gets much easier. The ending seemed a little stupid. --3/5x
