It's too hard when you don't have any health items...well, nice idea, but too bad it just HARD. I just feel it's boring and then use "kill monsters" and see those stupid evil balloons go BOOM! Lovin' it. But after that, it just a failed design...and ruined the cool idea. :( 2/5x
Interesting idea, not a huge lot of fun in practice. 1.5/5 - ZZx
This is dated December 2011. Just like in my dream, bright red normal-sized biting killer balloons stream from the Doomguy's head whilst you run around trying to light all the candles on a cake. And then a big balloon attacks you with fire. I hate it when that happens. You're just getting to sleep and, bang, a big balloon attacks you with fire. The level is very hard - no health - and not much fun to play, although I'm glad that I saw it.x
It's quite hard. I would have liked it much more if there was health (maybe you could eat some cake or something). But otherwise I liked it, 4stars.x
Great idea, but sometimes your movement freezes by what at first seems the balloons atacking you but then it happened without a ballon. I finished it with invulterability. 3/5 - Optimusx
I can't understand this map. I stuck in the wall.x
An impressive technical and visual feat. I played on zdoom (even though i wasn't supposed to) and it ran more or less ok. Its really eerie yet retro. As a mapper, it had me scratching my head as to how this was done with nothing more than DeHackED. Very nice! 5/5 -FoH x
