Castle1 (or JAL_CAS1.WAD) is single-level PWAD for Doom, designed by James Legg and released in May 1994. The map is themed around a small dungeon. Despite the title of the WAD file, claiming this map to be set in a castle, it does not prominently feature characteristics found in an actual castle map.
