Description: "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.

this is the legendary barrel. play it now! `Csonicgox
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
Totally legendary. http://www.doom2.net /doom2/research/thin gs.htmlx
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
