Description: This is a _very_ large file, owing to the detail given to the level (lots of linedefs) and the shear size of the map. This map is designed primarily for single player games, but has multi-player starts, and an interesting consession for DeathMatch, though the map was not designed for DeathMatch. This map took over 150 "man-hours" to create, and outgrew both DEU 5.0 and DEU 5.1's memory allocation schemes. There are no "step wrong and die" traps - If you can get into an area (without cheating) you can get out. There are secrets, hidden doors and switches galore in this map.

This is a re-release with two minor fixes (linedef changes and one texture change). This file replaces the older RRWARD01.WAD and RRWARD01.ZIP.

Well the architecture is fairly simple, but its from '94 so thats understandable. It starts off pretty basic but becomes more elaborate the farther you get into the map, not to mention it's pretty fun. 4/5 ~Joe Andersonx
Not great. It felt like it was trying to be one of those atmospheric, realistic levels like "UAC_DEAD" and "INVADE2", but just ended up being boring and square. 2.5/5x
Pretty good for its age. If this was made in 2009 it would be laughed at. Not too large of a map, would take a normal doomer 20 minutes to beat. Fun to play, a bit of ambiance in the cave part, I did get scared by a pink demon.x
Very high quality wad. Tense gameplay - few monsters, but health is well enough balanced to mean there is constant danger. I'm off to check out the other rrward wads now...x
