About This File

You need a registered version of Ultimate DooM to play this. 2.2 Mb when unzipped.

This is a full, nine map DooM 1 episode incorporating the 5 previously released 'Spooky' maps plus 4 spanking brand new, neverseenbefore ones. If you've already played the spookies, then sorry but I have decided to release this wad purely for my own benefit. I wanted to sign off from DooM with some kind of accomplishment i.e. a complete episode for Doom 1....and this is it!!

The new maps are e4m1, e4m7, e4m8 & e4m9 in case you don't want to play the spookies again. Each map is designed to be played from scratch.

This wad will run with v1.9 and is not exclusive to any port.

+++ SPECIAL NOTE FOR ZDOOM USERS +++ You must use the extension "-noflathack" in the command line, otherwise this wad will crash.

Amazing! For me, easily the best episode for doom 1, wheater it's for gameplay (which is tough), or the superb dark atmosferic, detailed architecture, it just beats the crap out of all episode 4 replacements i've played (including death tormention series), and yes, i prefer it to the authors "slayer" episode, although that one is awesome aswell. And quality doom1 replacements are something of a rarity, so if you're into doom 1, you can't go wrong here. 5/5 -TeH NeXuS

This was one of the best episode replacements I've played, and every level is a good progression from the last, providing fair but tough challenge that rises with each level. The atmosphere is exceptionally "spooky," making perfect use of custom textures and stock Doom stuff.

May possibly be the best map I have ever played. A mixture of Doom, and evil. 5/5 -r_rr

Talented mapper Wiles (Slayer, Darkening 2) serves up a disjointed, uneven set of castle/base maps. Some maps are very good (e.g. E4M7 and E4M8) whereas the gameplay in others is lacklustre, and sometimes even annoying (including a strange infatuation with lost souls). The improper new sounds should have been left out. Nothing to complain about in the aesthetics department. Overall, a solid piece of work which is pretty darn good. --4/5

"You need a registered version of Ultimate DooM to play this." aww fuck, i've got the shareware version. how can i play this shit? nonetheless, i still give this wad 4 stars for effort. can't wait to buy full version of doom 1 to play this and many wads as i own only doom 2.

I agree strongly with what everyone else has already said; this is a truely amazing episode . In terms of Doom I Episode 4 wads, this is IMO in a tied second place with DT2 and beaten only by DT3. There is really nothing wrong with this episode at all - it is so good that this could be a commercial episode and be quite popular - it sure beats all of the original Doom levels hands down. Difinantly not an episode to be missed.

It's hard to believe this wad is some 12 years old - it would be a great release even today. I think it's right with DT3 for best E4 replacements.

      Meh. Good for a first level. Nothing special. Average. I could see it on a 1000 DOOM level CD. Its ok.

      Gave me chills I'll give you that, but thats only because im a wuss and its 2:00 AM. Other than that, just straight crap. Its just 3 dark rooms. Thats all.

      Reminds me of Portal but is ultimately a stupid WAD.   P.S. I hit the bottom without cheats, therefore it isn't endless.

      too often we see a set that is basically an E1 replacement, with no real changes to anything besides "this is an episode 1 replacement with a style similar to the real deal except I made it" or something along the lines. this one is no different, although it really is only half of an episode. but is there anything eye-popping here? no. it's all average at the very best, definitely not any better than the real E1 although it does have some minor homages. but there's nothing that's gonna make this memorable. now, there was effort, but not a whole lot of it. this set really does look like something a newbie mapmaker would make in just a few days. what's also strange is how this one for some reason requires a ZDoom based port, although there's next to nothing ZDoom-y about it. it was intended to be a "lost episode" and while you can probably say that, is there anything here that is really good enough?

      A nice and fun little map.  Also, I don't know if it was intentional or not, but the way those panels blinked really fast - it was like they were blinking in time with that fun, fast-paced midi.  Either way, it was a nice touch.   You seriously need to do more maps.  If this map was any example of what you can do, then you certainly need to do more!
