About This File

A large base-style level with a lot of extra patches, textures, and sprites. Also something of an Episode One recreation.

it's very system shock + claustrophobia.wad w/o any cover or run space. It's like a roller coaster of rip roaring pain, especially if you put custom monsters to hunt you down on alert. Overall, it's a very good level, which the design guarantees certain death if one does not take precaution (that includes hidden sniper walls, yes, that's a bitch). Yes, there are space areas too. ~3/5

This is dated March 1999. It's a tech / moonbase, and I hated it; the ammo balance is far too spartan, so that even though there are 83 monsters, you have to snipe with the plasma gun - which now fires an ugly-looking fluorescent purple turd instead of a plasma bolt.

Great map - very attractive design. Regarding ammo balance: you are given a berserk early on, so you've no problems as long as you think of using it. It is a weapon, you know.

This is one of these levels that are more than just about killing monsters. You explore a realistic moon base that is very believable thanks to the use of many new textures and Boom features. The atmosphere is incredible (I used hrmus.wad with idmus29 to enhance it). It's a good challenge too: you have to be very careful with your ammo and use berserk pack. Fantastic experience and a great showcase of what Boom is capable of.

      Another solid mapset that captures the PSX version feel perfectly. Maps comes in all flavors, from techbases and urban areas to the menacing void and, of course, HELL and also has some unexpected secrets which you might play it to see. Of course, I absolutely love the PSX version of Doom and this one is no exception. Gameplay speaking, it's pretty balanced and thought out nicely...with ambushes, good monster placement and really nasty traps which you must avoid it at all costs. One thing that will help you a lot is the addition of a new weapon...seriously, that thing is powerful...check it out and try. Maps have a nice look that helps you to be inmersed in the atmosphere and coupled with the music, it's much better.   Great recommendation, give it a try and you'll have a fun time.

      Since I tested the map, I can say that playing it again it still surprises me the amount of effort and detail of the gameplay used, like a lot of portals, clever effects like the one used before you pick up the yellow key saying nope and many nice references including a special secret. Gameplay itself for combat is pretty straightforward with some nasty stuff for you in the Nightmare difficulty. Try that out by all means. Really solid stuff which I totally recommend you folks and play it.

      When first reading this wad's description I thought this will be a 1994 style map, where someone just tried to recreate his office building to shoot up his colleages. Boy, was I wrong!   Going Down emerged as one of my favourite megawads so far, with its very clever use of small to medium map space and interesting gameplay mechanics in every single map. The first couple of maps start innocent enough, but soon you will find yourself navigating literal crawl spaces, thinking about use of space and / or slight puzzle mechanics just before being thrown into hell itself and fighting for your life. Going Down is designed as a literal descent into hell, which was the most beautifully realized aspect of it. How every map slightly changes into a more and more hellish theme is just great, great design work. Even though the later maps delve into slaughter territory I must admit that I still quite enjoyed it. Actually this was the first time I enjoyed being slaugthered and figuring out how to approach the map.   Going Down is simply an amazing piece of work, oozing quality from start to finish and rewarding the player with incredible elevator music inbetween. A must play.

      Such a wonderful creation! I really wish there were some more maps so this could make it into ZDaemon Thursday Night Survival (TNS) someday...
