About This File

After playing one of my old favorites, CYBRDETH.WAD, I released that there's really a lack of GOOD Cyberdemon battles in Doom maps. Oh sure, there's always the newbie maps with 50 Cybers in one room and 1000 BFGs lying all over, but that's no fun. So I made this map to fill that gap, and also to provide a challenge to veteran Doomers like myself.

The difficulty levels break down like so..

Easy - 4 Cybers, some Lost Souls Medium - 8 Cybers, some Lost Souls and a few Imps Hard - 12 Cybers, some Lost Souls and a lot of Imps

There are Green Armors on Medium and Blue Armors on Hard as well. There is no armor on Easy, but there there are 5 Soul Spheres on all difficulty levels.

Any Doomer worth his/her Plasma Rifle should be able to take out 4 Cybers, no problem. 8 Cybers are a bit tougher, but if you've beaten Ultimate Doom's Episode 4, this should also be possible. 12 Cybers are the real test of your skill, as I only just scraped by myself!

The golden rule is to CONSERVE YOUR AMMO! Do not fire randomly around hoping to hit anything.. there's only just enough to kill everything! Also, don't pick up the numerous backpacks outside unless you really need ALL FOUR ammo types they give! Expend your cells and rockets first, then your bullets and shells, as the first two are harder to come by.

The platforms which the plasma rifles are on (which you teleport to), are actually lifts, so you can lower them and get additional cells from the guns. This also means getting the plasma is a risk in DM due to the fact that they're over a very deep lava pit!

Finally, this map requires BOOM or a compatible source port due to the high sectors, numerous 2-sided linedefs, additional DM and Coop start spots, and the "bright" lava effect.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
