About This File

Dropped into a series of canals with swiftly flowing water, the only way for you to escape is by defeating the Barons of Hell which guard the teleporter out. Unfortunately for you, there are also some Cyberdemons firing into the canals from above, as well as hazards like barrels floating around too..

This is a concept map, I know. Virtually every linedef in the map is two-sided, and this is why the map has a tendency to run slowly. The fact that there are dozens of moving floors doesn't help the framerate either.

As for the gameplay, your objective is to defeat the Barons of Hell which roam around the canals, while trying not to be swept away yourself. Every weapon is available, and you'll find lots of ammo and other goodies going in a circle throughout the level. Since you also have to worry about those Cybies, this map basically tests your ability to fight while moving constantly. When they are all defeated, the pillar near the start of the map (marked with an 'Exit' sign) will lower, allowing you to jump into the next episode..

On Easy skill levels, you'll only have to hunt down 3 Barons. On Medium, there will be 5 to deal with. And on Hard, 8 of them are out there..

A big maze of rapidly flowing water where you must kill all the barons to exit. Kind of neat in terms of showing off what the Boom features can do, but not much fun to play.

I like it very much, because you run with the water all the time. The appearance could be better, but because of the gameplay it is worth playing it! 4/5

LOL! No clue how to reach the exit.

This is basically a test of Boom's conveyor belt effect. It's an interesting concept - the map feels like an 80s arcade game, or the ancient 8-bit oddity Gyron - but the execution is a bit iffy. The Barons don't react too well to the conveyor, and they look comical spinning around; the cyberdemons never hit you, because you're always moving, even if you stand still; and you have to kill eight barons, which is dull. Might have worked as a short part of a megawad.

      Great megawad that re-imagines Doom 2 how it should have been: With recognizably earth like settings. The maps look generally very realistic with some really good Doom cute furniture and the occasional funny vignette. Gameplay stays classic and imho on the easier side, which is a welcome treat in times of slaughtermaps and too much actual mapping, thus not having enough times to actually play Doom. This is no Sandy Peterson or overly hellish WAD mind you. You do get some hellish hellscapes in later maps, but the majority is earth-like and rather corridor focused. Enemy encounters are on the traditional side as well, with almost nothing standout, except that weird "Warehouse Siege" map that features what felt like 1,000 Archviles. I did not know how to progress there and had to cheat in the end, other than that you can pretty traditional encounters which means a shotgunner around the corner, and a pinky in the sewer, etc.   Even so, the really great design and occasional custom textures make this a standout WAD that traditionalists definitely want to check out.

      This turns the game into a third-person shooter with a fox as the main actor. It also adds cool sound clips.   I give it five stars, because turning the game into a third person shooter by just exchanging the weapon graphics is cool and works very good. It's not that i stay with it for a longer time, but it has my intellectual respect!   Greetings Funduke

      Warp to MAP32, enable noclip, and walk forward.

      Just ended this megawad.
      Its fast pumping action on really short and moderatelly challenging maps. i really like it, and the soundtrack is one of the best!!!

      Thank you Paul Cofiatis for this megawad. Hope you can give us more awesome and entertaining mapsets like this one.

      If John Romero claimed this map as his. I'd believe him until how I found out how to reach the blue key on the ledge.

      I'm stealing that trick.
