None this is just a remake of level 1, Episode 1 from Doom I. And this is certainly the mostly redone level using all type of editors.


This is another find for COD pointed out by JC at Planetphillip Forum Like the name from the map told you this is a simple remake of doom 1 level 1.

Architecture is pretty basic but reflect perfectly the original Doom I level, It's not a big map so there isn't much to tell about simple room after simple room with here and there some stairs to get down or up and also some 'secret' path well reproducted from the original level.

Texture conversion is well put together and perfectly squaled and placed to get the feeling of playing doom with an up to date engine (a little like Risen3d port), the map is short but all together architecture and texture is a perfect reproduction of Doom I level 1. The only big missing is some background music to recreate the full ambience of the level.

Gameplay is perhaps the only approach whish should have been more imaginative regarding reproduction of the Doom level and, in this case, it's a little disapointing. There is no key hunting or puzzle to solve it's a mostly straight forward german soldiers feast ambushes are heavy to battle through especially regarding the only health pack available.

In conclusion: An interesting different approach for making a cod level not perfect but enjoyable through it's reproduction of an original DOOM I level. At least the author shows that he can handle in a correct way the cod engine. Defently would like to see a more classic level from the author.
