Review by Colin Phipps

screenshot TSEWER is a level for Doom 2; you have to enter the sewers and clean out the monsters (fortunately not the sewage too :-P). The level requires Boom, since it seems the generalised linedefs, and the special lighting stuff for the acid tunnels.

The sewer theme is well done, with not just the usual acid tunnels, but lots of pipes and waterfalls too. Very nice use of made of the Doom 2 acid waterfall texture, it's not often it gets used this well. There is lots of other good stuff like moving machinery in places, and stylish lighting. Towards the end there were a few places not so good, but overall the sewers style was very well done.

Gameplay was good, especially early on; there are plenty of switches to hit, and it's always pretty clear what they do. Later on the level is more linear though. There is a lot of variety of fights through the level, plenty to keep you busy; later on there are a couple of clever archville fights, pretty well done I thought. There are some secrets to find too.

A nice level, go play it. That's all.
