BARREL2.WAD (Barrel Version 2.0)|
"No.... please. Not the Barrel! Anything but the Barrel.. No! Not the Barrel! Not the Barrellllllll!"|
Welcome to Barrel - I hope it gives you nightmares. Certainly, if you have a machine slower than a 486 then you take your chances with this WAD as a few areas have quite complex detail.
I certainly had fun making this one (and playing it). You'll find a couple of references to Scream.Wad - so if you've played that, it might help. Then again it might not.
As usual, this *can* be done without cheating.
* Barrel2 is an updated version of the original WAD. I have changed a few small things and fixed a playability bug in "Hurt me plenty". I've also added a secret.
Any problems - email me.
David Quin-Conroy for testing the first room. Various people on IRC #doom, who prompted strange thoughts - especially about acid and 150 light spectres :) Raphael Quinet for DEU 5.1 Warner Bros. cartoons.|
New level from scratch|

|this is the legendary barrel. play it now! `Csonicgo||x|
|it has some difficult puzzle and not enough weapon..Maybe can't clear this game with normal doom.||x|
|Urgh. The first room beat me. I can see the trick - you're supposed to nudge a barrel with your pistol over a lift trigger - but it doesn't work. Using IDCLIP I find that the rest of the level is a maze, full of no-escape slime pits, and the "puzzles" are either irritating or involve nudging barrels with your pistol. Probably clever for 1994, but no enjoyment value at all.||x|

|I'm not impressed by any thing within this wad, except, of course, it's venerable age. /hth PS: use your saves - it is what they are for. ||x|
