DIFFICULTY RATING  - rating: 7

    This level doesnít present anything overly challenging, but you will need to practice a little bit of ammo preservation if you want to keep yourself in good supply. Rusty Slacker does throw a few tough battles at you, and at a few points you will need to be extra careful and in search of health. The level gives you a few sudden surprises where youíll have to act quickly to outlive the demons; however the hellknight traps are defunct, and as such they donít give you nearly as much scare as they otherwise would have.

 

Playability -  rating: 8   

     Wasted overall is a decent level with solid game play. There arenít any frustratingly difficult parts, but it will keep you engaged.  The structure of the level doesnít demand a lot of running to and fro, and you wonít have to go on searching looking for what that switch just did.

 

Level Design -  rating: 6

     I was pleased visually with this wad. The detail feels just right, with good choices of textures. Some areas are lacking in detail where others appear to have gotten all the attention, but the details that are present are simple and classy. However, a few HOMs were noticed and were distracting to a stingy level designer like myself ( a note: the map is designed for gl ports and doesn't present these errors in them). Also, the author tries to use the old monster-appears-from-invisible-pit trick, exceptÖ the pits arenít invisible, resulting in a clearly visible monsters lurking below the floor of the room. This mistakes and the impact on game play takes some credit away from an otherwise beautiful level.
