And yes, getting the BFG in MAP10 is slightly annoying indeed. I was not going to complain about it, but now that you mention it, you might want to take away the timed puzzle and just have the secret switch lower the stair section permanently.


Exactly what I've done, in fact! The blue part of the stairs now lowers permanently. The main purpose of the switch was to make sure the player had to deal with the Baron before grabbing the BFG, but permanently lowering the stair section still does exactly that.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it!

I'm particularly fond of the new music tracks, and Lee Jackson wrote the music for MAP11. I'm also a lot happier with some of the early levels, which are less grindy in terms of resources. This does make them a bit easier, so it's entirely possible I might bring up the difficulty of MAP01-MAP03 in particular to be slightly more consistent with the rest of the levels, but right now, the difficulty curve feels very smooth yet broad to me, as MAP11 is definitely the hardest level in the whole set.

Let me know what you think! I'm looking forward to it.

I'm making some good progress on MAP12, which is the start of the Hell episode (what's the episode after Hell? that's a secret). Expect even bigger fights where you'll have to think on the fly, think about which enemies are the biggest threat, and deal with them before you get overrun.
