Some Weird Texturing Here And There
...but a fun level.
I played this using Doom Retro and decided to go whole hog on the "retro" thing -- fairly low res, no vertical mouselook, no crosshair, no widescreen. Rough intro if you do a pistol start, but a fun time after that. A good-looking map with some truly classic combat and map-uncovering. Some classic bullshit unfairness too but it's all good. :-)
For some reason it makes me quite happy that Romero still has good Doom maps in him.
(I kind of wish I had played this without knowing the author; I wonder how much of the "authentic Doom-ness" that I was smelling was from a placebo effect.)
Would have been all right if everything wasn't so cramped and fiddly.
Your Ass Is Cramped And Fiddly.
I haven't actually played this yet so I don't know if you're right. I just wanted to put that out there. Your cramped and fiddly ass.
It wouldn't be cramped if you'd wait your turn.
Look at all these people jealous of my tight arse. I'm sorry yours resembles a windsock :(
There are definitely cramped places. There's also some big open areas that are a bit under-used. It's been 20 years since he made and released a map so I think what he created is still quite the achievement. His second map should be brilliant if this is the warm-up.
For me the 2 biggest problems with the map is that the opening moments are extremely difficult, you really have to work hard to get a decent 'foothold'. And the very last room with bruiser brothers is a bit claustrophobic and under-populated.

Where are the octopus monsters?
I Enjoyed This
A little tough at the beginning then quickly becomes a little too easy. Other than that I think it's pretty sweet.

i never knew windsocks were called windsocks!
Is There A Non-dropbox Download Somewhere
Are you taking a principled stand against DropBox or something?
No It's Just Blocked At Work
Rick, that's actually insane.
Hardly Surprising Though
Would be hilarious if it turns out this is part of an arrangement with Bethesda to do some viral marketing for the new Doom.
Timings a little off though.
