@ SteveD: Now it's just a routine task of trying to replicate actions you saw, right? I believe in you, you can do it!
@ Suitepee: Ribbiks' map is challenging, but also very short. But of course, all the maps from now on will feel like a breeze after mine. Forgive me. Please.
...Okay, let's get this over with. Better late than never.
3 Ways From Hell
Well, that's impressive. Really large, elaborate and great-looking, also challenging. However, challenge often comes from ammo shortage that forces you to rely heavily on infighting (or just run away), and some moments felt really harsh (like the one with vast open area with fuckton of nobles and archviles hidden among them on one end and cyber on the other). So in the end - not very pleasant to play, but still outstanding, I admit it.
Twilight of the Gods
This one provokes mixed feelings. Visuals are nice enough for such a strange combination of both busy and minimalistic vistas, but the gameplay is messy, and not in a good way. Progression is also somewhat obscure, I have no idea what's the right order of things, even though I've beaten it. This music is pretty annoying, too.
Not bad, pretty simplistic and has low detail, but still somewhat charming. More or less good usage of scripts to spice things up. Worth a look.
Go To Hell
Pretty average map, much like beginner's work, but still considerably better than these two 'mehs' above.
The Adventures of Pope Steve
Borderline jokemap, still beatable though, even remotely fair. Probably. And curse you for putting that music in, it entwines the brain with ease!
Dripping Oven Oil From Your Third Arm
Same as above. Has its fair share of annoying moments and open mockery, but thankfully is short enough.
A trial-and-error puzzlemap of sorts. Not a fan, though it's somewhat creative.
Ode to everything
Didn't do it for me.
ffffabolous secret level
Ahh, my ears... Ohh, my eyes... WHY?
I'm not the right person to fully appreciate maps like this one. Thanks for the opportunity to leave it at any time, much appreciated.
East of Eden
This was pretty good actually. Noticed some lighting-related issues in the final areas, defeat the cyberdemon, climb the waterfall again and you'll see... iirc.
End Of Days
Played the separate version with all the scripts working. Actually it's pretty cool map, nice-looking and with some good fighting. One of the better maps in zdoom set, definitely worth giving it a shot.
Uhh, no. Very cramped and busy-looking, feels like something from a beginner showing his 'madskillz' in gzdoom-based editing.
UAC: Unsettling Athletic Corporation
This one is... strange. I can't find the word that would suit it better. Pretty disturbing.
A Room with A View
Pretty average, like something from the 90s with room-over-room effect implemented for the purpose unknown.
Minimalistic, even ugly at times, but has some decent action that balances on thin edge between being fun and dickish. I don't know, I sort of liked it, but in fact it's nothing special or truly memorable.
Trial And Error
Hey, this one's great! Had great fun with it, the only problem that makes things a bit worse is symmetric fights. Still, not a dealbreaker. Very cool way to relax while gunning down some cannon fodder. Thanks.
Law & Order: Special Doomguy Unit
I'm not going to describe it, go see it yourself, it's... mindbreaking. PEGI 18.
So here it is. I'd say the best wad for me is the one for Boom (no, not because it contains my own 'masterpiece'), but other wads contain some goodies as well. You just have to dive deeper... into something not that good. Dixi.
