MAP33: The Gantlet is the thirty-third level of the PlayStation and Sega Saturn versions of Doom, and the third level of the Doom II episode. It is based on the original MAP03: The Gantlet, with modifications made to adapt the map to the consoles' limitations. The author of the original map is American McGee.

Comparison of versions[edit]

Differences from the PC version of the map include the following:

  • As in almost all maps, some passageways are widened due to the larger player radius.
  • As in many maps, staircases were simplified to reduce use of floor drawing resources and to save memory by reducing the number of sectors in the map.
  • The backpack secret added to this map in version 1.9 of Doom II is not present, since the game is based on the v1.666 build.
