About This File

Try to get the barons close to each other and then get one of 'em to blow up a barrel in front of 'em.

You should warp straight to E1M8, and there's no way you could win this with pistol, you need to do the trick explained above. It can take a while and a lot of tries to finish this, but it can be done. And don't shoot the barons! Don't even blow up the barrels yourself, or it will be much harder!

It's basically an early level from "Suspended in Dusk" author Espi. It's a demonstration of one of Doom's features. It's a moderately-sized room with lots of barrels and four Barons of Hell. If you get them to blow up the barrels in such a way that one Baron's shooting injures another Baron, they fight each other; their magic blobs don't hurt but their scratching does. The surviving Barons are very weak and can be blow up, and the level ends.

This can be done with any monsters of the same type, altho same species cannot hurt each other with the fireballs but will melee each other to death.

      from a mechanical perspective, this is pretty fucking good. the idea of escaping a torturous prison area by punching your way through makes a whole lot of sense. the big slaughter room is pretty good mechanics wise, especially with the conveyor, the tower controls, and the pickaxe secret. for some reason when a monster telefrags the baron by entering the machine, he somehow manages to survive the barrel teleport for some dumb reason. the escape route out of the castle is admirable, and there's even a dead body to shoot to actually get a secret along the way. the murky gray water with friction is nice.   but from a gameplay perspective, other than the berserk punching at the beginning, this one doesn't offer much to be honest. it's got good ideas but the combat is meh.

      My new favourite set of 32 maps. Definitely the best MegaWAD that Skillsaw has ever made, destroying Valiant. Lots of unexpectedly cool ideas can be found within these solid maps. From the very first level with the neon "Wolf Warp" you know that you're in for a real treat. "Leave your Sol Behind" also blew me away with the whole space ship travel gimmick.   In terms of difficulty: I was playing with Project Brutality on its equivalent of Hurt Me Plenty, so that amped up the difficulty considerably. A couple areas really constrict you for ammo, and according to Skillsaw that was supposed to be a main feature of the WAD but was dropped for a majority of the maps. Occasionally you encounter some slaughter-like areas and maps but nothing that got bland or seemed like a crutch for bad level design. You will face a considerable number of Cyberdemons and Spider Masterminds, which is par-for-the-course when it comes to custom Doom maps.   In my opinon, some guest maps sucked (Nectar Flow) while others fit very well (Culture Shock, Acerols-Orion). Maybe some could say that the second episode did start to blend slightly together from level to level due to the visuals, but I would also say that the second episode had the best content for the MegaWad.   So all in all I'd definitely recommend this Wad to anyone who plays Doom and is looking for a beacon in Doom map design.

      I made the mistake of putting this on UV for my first playthrough. Oops. It was insanely brutal and I didn't have a lot of fun with it. However, after checking out the readme, as suggested I went back for another run on HMP. It's impressive to see the huge difference in difficulty and I appreciate the effort in differentiating the various skill level choices. I definitely recommend new players play it on HMP or lower, that way you can really appreciate the excellent architecture and interesting color scheme, as well as that soothing DKC music that makes for a unique vibe. 4/5 for a HMP playthrough. The only thing lacking here is the amount of maps, and that's OK. I'd just love to see more in this style.   Rating when played on UV: 2/5. For extreme masochists only.

      It's a very impressive megawad with a nice themed ancient Egypt atmosphere, with very nice choosing of textures to contribute to that theme, very nice architecture and impressive (and very risky) twist on the story going from ancient Egypt to alien spaceships, without using hi-pitched colors like in Ancient Aliens. Also, very tough megawad, if you're masochist enough, you can play it with Complex Doom and add LCA for more doses of pain.

      It's okay. Quite easy due to the abundance of artifacts, mana, & health. The level design is fine, nothing special. The only truly bad part was the unmarked puzzle bookcases, forcing you to wallhump the entire library as a last resort. Otherwise it's pretty simple stuff, running around finding keys and smashing monsters. The texturing and lighting aren't fantastic but aren't noticeably bad either. The only glaring issue is that many windows just show a wall textured with the sky texture rather than an area with a sky ceiling. Yet there are perfectly normal outdoor areas. Perhaps the author only figured it out skies halfway through development? Anyways, this is worth your time if you want an hour or two of simple Hexen fun.
