This is from July 1995. It has over 400 monsters, which is unusually fierce for an amateur level of the period. It gets off to a terrible start, with a useless 1994 corridor, but things improve quickly - the design remains crude (the teleporters are all misaligned, and the monsters don't see you until you enter their area, which makes a couple of bits much too easy), but there's lots of action. Final battle = infight city.x
A nice map, done by the same duo who made the likewise good certdeth.wad. The rooms are all bare and a little ugly (the first part has a definite pre-Doom 2 feeling), but the gameplay's good, with clever traps, close-quarter fighting as well as large areas with tons of monsters to waste. The progression is also nicely done, you're never lost and always have a place to go. It all ends with a massive fight, so be prepared. The overall difficulty here shouldn't be overwhelming if you watch your step. --3/5x
