About This File

This WAD replaces all 32 levels of Doom2. All levels are playable solo, co-op or DM, to give you maximum playing opportunity!

Short descriptions of each level are included in DFEARLVL.TXT (included with DMONFEAR.ZIP), but the basic ethic behind the design is simple: I aimed to provide 32 short, sharp shocks for Doom 2 that were both highly playable and visually impressive. I hope I've succeeded.

Probably the shortest 32 level megawad in existence. Very few maps have more than 30-odd monsters and are fairly easy, even on UV, though there are some well deployed Revenants and Archviles which can cause the odd awkward moment.

 

The best way to play it these days for a challenge would probably be with pistol starts or mods like Complex Doom or Hard Doom.

 

The only way I could get map 22 to run properly was in PrBoom-Plus, using the Doom2 v1.9 compatibility setting (Complevel 2), by the way.

Not bad, but too small confined maps, not much area to explore or have bigger fights, would have been nicer if levels were a bit biger

Small, arena-like levels.  Feels a bit like a confinement project.

On the first blind run go full speed ahead. Only replay value is if you are to do pistol starts. Overall, worth a play through as a nice change, but you won't be returning to it afterwards.

This is a really fun megawad that you can jump into and crush over one or two nights of game play. Non-stop action, fast paced maps, no complaints! Dick tested, Cock approved!

I would have liked somewhat longer levels, but this WAD is still great. Challenging and yet lots of fun!

Might've been great in its time but man, it has not aged well.

Probably the classic early "small but quality map" megawad; Scythe and the two 1024 megawads (and maybe even Scimitar and to an even smaller extent, Revolution!) are its successors. While it has some battleground maps that just seemed to bit useless in that you can run to the exit, and the overall visual quality is better in each of the above-mentioned later wads, there are some nice small maps in here and it's not one to miss if you enjoyed the later wads of this kind. 4/5

It might just be the first megawad ever created considering this one is from 1995. Keeping that in mind, this wad is not that bad. I liked it, sorta. 3/5.

Great stuff if you're after a few short bursts of energy. Nothing too difficult, just a decent runaround.

Garbage. Scythe is much better. This is very lame and forgettable. The maps aren't very well done either. It doesn't even have an own intermission screen, and uses the same music and map titles as Doom 2. A big mess, but thankfully it's short, so I'll give it 2/5.

Meh. Too easy, bad visuals, and I beat it in one day. 2 stars.

"I aimed to provide 32 short, sharp shocks for Doom 2 that were both highly playable and visually impressive. I hope I've succeeded." Is what the Author said above. Well from playing this I have to say they are very short levels. Visually impressive, hell no. Could of been much better. I was disappointed after downloading this megawad.

Not the biggest of all WADS I've played but it is a fun WAD to play. Would be better if the levels were a lot bigger but at least it isn't sloppy and rushed. 4/5 - General Mike

This becomes too short and simple for me to truly enjoy, feels more like a populated set of deathmatch levels. Some okay designs now and then, and I suppose what little there is to play through isnt disasterously bad in the gameplay departement either. It totally lacks the immersion and exploration element however. 2.9/5 stars. -Johnsen

Certainly not as well aging as Scythe and the like, but it isn't bad for a small map megawad either. And it doesn't take very long. 3 stars.

Too much "realistic" and cramped architecture with randomly placed monsters. I can't stand it anymore after beating level 7. But if it is really from 1995 then it is not that bad. 2/5

      I...did not review this, okay. well, it's blue and it's pretty decent and setpiece-y. get used to ribbiks' style and this one is just like all his other maps, very well-designed and fun to play. just watch out for MAP03's final area.

      it's one of those classic 90's wads you can probably just sift through, but it's not that good. plenty of inescapable pits, some awful level progression, and some actually trollish crusher placement lie within this one.

      A few really good maps supported by a bunch of alright ones. Visuals are mostly Plutonia-inspired, with the occasional veering into Shores of Hell type mish-mash architecture. Difficulty is about on par with DOOM2.wad I think. Overall, a rather pedestrian affair, although the standout maps are certainly worth the time.

      BACK TO SATURN X E1: GET OUT OF MY STATIONS REVIEW:   The Good:   - Stunning visuals   - Great monster placement   - Lots of (clever) secrets and they are rewarding   - Enough ammo to keep you going   - The names of the Maps LOL!   - Loads of fun   - Awesome music!   The Bad:   - Not long enough. LOL! I loved it so much, I didn't want it to end!   In Short: I've actually played this fantastic WAD at least 6 or 7 times. Why? This is my second favorite WAD of all time, only bested by its successor, BTSX Episode 2: Fountain of Sparks. I remember the very first time I played it a couple of years ago like it was yesterday. How many times can you say that (in a good way) about a game?   I remember being completely blown away by the architectural designs at the time. I even remember giggling as I sunk in the ocean on the final Map, only to read something like "To Be Continued..." and thinking, "Awww....it's over." But I admit that, like everyone else, I had loads of fun with this.    There is lack of a "customary" final boss (I wasn't certain if this was a "Good" or "Bad" element of the game, hence why it's in neither category above - it really will depend on the player so I kept it neutral). But don't let that deter you! The final "stage" in the last (playable) Map is as memorable as it is wicked, and it'll keep you on your toes just like any other customary boss!   Play this WAD if it's the only WAD you ever play. Definite replay value.   Well deserved Cacoward. Thanks, Team, for making it!   5 out of 5 stars with me.  ~ dylux

      JENESIS REVIEW:   - Single Player - UV Settings - Pistol starts every Map - Third time playing in about 4-5 years span   The Good:    - Continuous Maps    - Great architecture    - Incredible Hellish themes    - Excellent monster placement    - Clever puzzles    - Loads of secrets. Most are clever as well.    - Great music    - Lots of stuff to get you alive and stocked    - Levels are just the right size. Not small nor are they huuuuuuge.    - Not a slaughterfest, but not easy either. Difficulty is perfect for single player.   The Bad:     - There's no Jenesis II.    In short:   Sometimes, finding a new DooM WAD to play is like finding a decent horror movie to watch: You're going to go through a few crappy ones before you find one that makes it all worthwhile. Jenesis is one of those WADS to play that's worth going through some crappy ones first.   If you are looking for a great balance between dog fighting and puzzle solving, then Jenesis is for you. This game was fun as hell - every level.    Anyone who plays this can easily tell that MUCH work went into this fantastic game. It's WADs like this one that keep me playing. Bravo Mr. Paddock!   You have huge shoes to fill, Jenesis - for my next WAD I play. One of my all time faves. Well deserved Cacoward. What a game! :)   5 out of 5 Stars.
