Description: First episode with 10 levels for Doom2, my goal was to make some maps with varied themes and full of tricks and ambushes, minimalistic detail as usual in my maps trying to emulate the classic feel, but trying to offer more action than in my previous releases, several alphadoom textures were employed and a very few extra, as those from map06 and the sky. regardless using Doom2 stuff like items and monsters I think you'll find the maps more Doom1 resembling, except for map05 and map06 which use plenty of doom2 textures. This mapet also contains 10 new midis.
Credits: Memfis for playtesting the first 5 maps, baronofheck82, Katamori, Ribbiks, Magnusblitz, Mr. Chris and Pure Hellspawn for giving me some feedback about this mapset.
Base: New from scratch

Nice maps, Feels like doom1 but with some challenging gameplay.x
Niche-wad. Played @ UV. Architecture: overall not bad, but nothing special, sometimes beh (doortrak level), textures often very 1994-style. Gameplay: massive, extremely predictable monster pop-ups, usually one-of-a-kind, so very fantasy-less. If you're Rambo, then you might like it (4/5). But if you like original or tactical gameplay, architectures, adventures, skip it (2/5). So avg: 3/5. BTW numerous texture misalignments, some missed textures, a slime trail.x
Brutal maps that aren't shy to repeatedly stab the player with evil traps. For that they are very well balanced (perfectly playable without saves). Some interesting and nicely done themes, such as a map made almost entirely out of DOORTRAK textures, ruins of Etruscan civilisation or a level where all floors are damaging. Lovely, at times very disco-ish music gives the whole thing a pleasant 90s feel. Fascinating, definitely not your average mapset.x
Every time I see a stock Doom (or Doom 2) texture I want to vomit.x
really fun, atmospheric maps. some worthy of 4 stars, others not so much. creative and unusual use of some of the stock textures. neat!x
^Hey, first reviewer, you are SICK! You need to be hospitalized. Are you human? You must be a monster to say what you're saying. How dare you spell The Holy Good Name of God in a phrase full of evil wishes. Stop bothering /idgames database with your worthless hatred, shame on you!x
