  1. This is a very beautiful map with a very high attention to detail. I like the flow of the map, but to me (in the end) it's just yet another map with section after section of traps, with hordes of revenants and the customary release of arch-viles. These types of maps always make me wonder what such a talented map architect could come up with in a more story-driven map. This giant ...citadel? would be a cool setting for something more than just a trap-fest.

    Knee deep in 2023: Now on Idgames!

    Ehhhh....Cry Me An Acid River was as far as I could get before I quit. That level, I do like. But all of these levels feel too much (for me) like a Switch Hunt where I sort of have to guess where to go to, or where to backtrack to. The level design is extremely dense, which is definitely an accomplishment in the Doom engine. My recommendation would simply be to create some more obvious objectives. I must've thrown like .....45 switches in a few levels, and all they did was open a door to another switch or elevator. Some of the monster teleports were obnoxious as well. The positive: the vibe is fun. The look is good 'ol KDITD just the way we love it.

    Ultimate Doom E4M1 replacement I made

    I was disappointed with this because when you say it's a "replacement for E4M1" it made me think you were going to go for something in that style. There doesn't really appear to be any reason to have it be E4M1 vs E2M1 or any other map. The map itself was pretty good from what I played, but it wasn't what I was hoping for unfortunately.
  4. That was super overkill but strangely therapeutic. I'm not quite sure what to think of it, but I'd definitely not be interested in playing it again.
  5. I think it looks excellent. There are a ton of parts that were fun. The purpose of this is supposed to be a gauntlet, sure. But it feels like it could achieve the same thing in 8 minutes vs 20. I liked seeing waves of enemies in the distance, particularly when all the Cacodemons are chasing you over that giant chasm midway through the map. But in my opinion, the map is too much like, "Go in this room, throw a switch, then a bunch of guys come out. Then go to the next room, do the same thing." The traps were predictable. But you have an excellent eye for detail, as far as map design. Eventually I was using God Mode and it still took forrreeevvverrr to clear some of those later rooms full of barons, etc. But it sounds like some people on here enjoyed your map, so maybe I'm the outlier on this.
  6. I thought this was super boring. There were some good visuals but it's so overkill as far as the number of enemies that it ceases being fun because you know it's just "Oh another roof full of revenants and arch-viles. It could have been 10 rooms instead of 30 and achieved the same thing. Not a fan.
  7. It's super short. There wasn't much to it, honestly. For someone that seems newer to map, it's "fine" as an early submission. Straighten out some of those walls and put some more rooms in there. Then put the red keycard further away from the red door, so the player has to go looking for it. Maybe a room with some green slime and a bridge or ledge you have to go over while dodging some imps. Then see what you think playing it yourself. THat's what I would do.
  8. This map was aweeesommmmeeee!!! What a hell of a first map! Texture work is great, the secrets are incredibly well-placed. Although I had to work really hard to find the shootable switches to find the blue keycard. Might want to tone down the difficulty on that detail so people have more of an incentive to check out the rest of the map. The difficulty was right on point as well. What a wonderful job!

    Modern wads that are relatively empty?

    Just started Deathless.....to me, this is the essence of Doom. Not endless trap rooms with 45 Revenants. Really a big fan of the first episode so far.
  10. I loved the rendition of E1M7. Took a few liberties, but it felt great.
  11. You definitely achieved your goal. I'm a fan of it. Have a nice night!

    slimetemple.wad - 1 map wad

    I had fun playing this but it was a little too hard in my opinion. A few less revenants at certain points would go a long way. But it was cool. Well-designed and generally I enjoyed it.
  13. Excellent job! This is a really fun little level. Died a few times but it wasn't unfair. I knew there'd be traps constantly and so I had to be mentally prepared for it...but I still got caught napping a few times. Nothing in this map was bullshit lol. Great work, again.
  14. The design is cool as far as the look, but unless you like tight-rope walking with -20% nukage and a bunch of archies and mancubii breathing down your neck at the very start of a level, don't waste your time. It's pointlessly difficult from the very start. Easy pass on this one. I don't understand the obsession with extreme difficulty from mappers on here. I know we all got guud at the game over the years, but come on.
  15. I had fun with this. Good solid little simple level. Good job showing restraint without the temptation of adding a ton of different enemies or weapons. Gave it a nice classic Doom feel. I like short levels like this. And I also appreciate the use of 3D floors like this that just add a little something to the level without it feeling like there's this complex mapping technique being used. It's used more as a little surprise than a feature of the level. Nice work.
