Mano Laikas: A road to Gamzatti
Description
Well, I'm back. I thought Erkattäññe was my last shot but I wanted to make more maps so here we are. Mano Laikas is a full "classic" Doom2 megawad. Aesthetics are pretty simple, the themes vary from E1, E2, alpha and what I call "heteroclites" and my goal as for Erkattäññe was to make mid sized maps with moderate monster count so they can be completed in 10-15 minutes at best. Also I seem to have developed a style that some praise and some others hate (those who rate my episodes with 0/1 stars and give lame excuses for doing so) and I'm fine with that. You'll find some maps linear and some non linear, some maps with big height differences and some very flat (ressembling the early Id maps / 1994 wads).

Misc. Author Info       : I'm a 32 years old doomer, I make maps when it's 
  possible for me because most of the time I'm busy 
  with other stuff. beyond that I keep interested on 
                          everything related to doom, I believe mapping is
                          a true art which requires lots of effort, 
                          motivation and skills.

Description             : Well, I'm back. I thought Erkattäññe was my last 
  shot but I wanted to make more maps so here we are.
  Mano Laikas is a full "classic" Doom2 megawad. 
   Aesthetics are pretty simple, the themes vary from 
                          E1, E2, alpha and what I call "heteroclites" and 
                          my goal as for Erkattäññe was to make mid sized 
                          maps with moderate monster count so they can be 
                          completed in 10-15 minutes at best. Also I seem 
                          to have developed a style that some praise and 
                          some others hate (those who rate my episodes with 
                          0/1 stars and give lame excuses for doing so) and 
                          I'm fine with that. You'll find some maps linear 
                          and some non linear, some maps with big height 
                          differences and some very flat (ressembling the 
                          early Id maps / 1994 wads).

                          This mapset also encourages the use of the rocket 
                          launcher (except for the cramped maps) because 
                          I didn't want this to become a SSG fest as it 
                          usually happens.
