comments: I just finished playing his mod. In my opinion it's a mixed bag.
Some levels are uninteresting and feel lazily created because they have so many rooms with just a single guard/skeleton to beat or just a bunch of hazards in a row (chompers, crushers, fires and guillotines). Examples are levels 6, 7, 9, 16, 18, 19, 20, and probably others.
Other levels are more interesting because they have actual level design. Examples are levels 1, 12 and 15.
Level 13 has a bit of both, there's level design, but also basic rows of hazards.
If you play this mod, use save states or you'll die often by things you cannot anticipate (like going down to non-exiting rooms).
Some questionable music choices (guard battle in level 8, Jaffar fight in level 9) and color choices (all-black in levels 10-12).
I liked that it was usually clear where to go. I did get stuck in level 5 after jumping through the mirror. In room 14 of level 14, I didn't know how to pass the spinning log, nor how to get the potion, nor how to continue after that (the teleporter didn't bring me to a place where I could continue).
I'm giving this mod 3 out of 5 stars.
