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

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.
