I'm reviewing two new WADs this week, and any that didn't make it before the deadline will be talked about next week. They came from Newstuff, by the way.
- The Other Side Of Phobos by Karthik Abhiram - - This is a very nice single-player map for Ultimate DOOM, running on E1M1. Fans of episode 1 will eat this one up. It takes place on a moon base, with a healthy mix of indoor and outdoor areas. It most resembles E1M9 of the original Doom. Health and ammo is balanced quite well, and the challenge is good. It also has a very simple yet decent music replacement. Again, very nice.
- X8a7 by Graham Baird - - Five maps for Ultimate DOOM, E1M1-M4 and E1M9. These maps have variety of themes, using odd combinations of textures. Little detail throughout most of the maps, and health and ammo seems unbalanced. It does bear a small resemblance to the original Doom maps, however.
