About This File

A level for Ultimate Doom + a port that will up the vis-plane limit and is compatible with boom. Main focus was on single player + co-op, but there is some very good DM support.

Story: Shortly after Deimos vanished, the hellspawn appeared on Mars and Earth. Blah Blah Blah, you are a private UAC marine stationed on Mars, and your buddies are gone. Grab your shotgun and take some of the uglies out!

Oh and you never can have enough computer screens eh?

here's another one of the one-level wads on the Top 100 wads of all time, a wad that is considerably short for its placement there. Only Crestfallen is shorter, in my opinion, but as short as Atomic Tomb is, it's one of those quick and dirty levels. It's got a very deathmatch-like layout going for it, but the game also puts in a good run in with the singleplayer combat, with the nonlinear touches you can run around and get weapons. might want to prepare ahead of time when you get to the northern end, that plasma gun will help against the cyber. it's an E1M1 combat-oriented map and does it well enough.

A fairly short and flat map with very good visuals. The gameplay feels a bit underwhelming (even with the Cyberdemon on UV) but the nonlinear layout works nicely.

Atomic Tomb is a fun E1M1 replacement I highly recommend anyone looking for a short level with nonstop action and multiple routes that you can take.

this wad flows far better then most, not being clogged up with an overabundance of doors and switches. 4.5/5

Too short to be legendary at all but a very solid playable map.

An entertaining map that only takes a few minutes to finish; there's one good ambush and a berzerk fight with some invisible demons. Are there any greater pleasures in life than Doom's berzerk fist? Dancing around the imps, playing with them, and then punching them into goo? I believe the berzerk fist is the best weapon in a computer game evah, better than Elite's mining lasers and the circle-laser from R-Type.

Awesome gameplay on a smallish map, reminds me of Scythe levels even though this came first.

Really fun map. It takes place in a well detailed, small area and is just overall very pleasing. Easily 4/5

Another solid map by Brad Spencer. I love the chaotic gameplay in this one, it might be short but it'll be 5-10 minutes very well spent with no filler. 5/5 - DeathevokatioN

Good, but not one of the 10 best 2000.

This excellent map has a few intense fights (one of which I beat without the invulnerability and plasma gun that was provided, because I entered from the wrong side), without being excessively difficult. The spectre scene where you must use the berserk pack caught me off guard, as I try to avoid melee range whenever possible. Could stand to be, as the text file says, "overloaded with slants and crap" some more, as it is rather sparse on details. Recommended. 4/5 --Woolie

      Legendary. Once saw someone say that the maps were "ugly". They can have the opinion they want, but man, is this wad out of this world in terms of looks, gameplay and variety. A must-play.

      This had lots of fun exploratory elements and fancy visuals, but I wasn't so keen on the abundance of dark caves crammed with the larger Doom 2 beastiary. At first it started to feel like a commitment playing this wad with the first few maps leaving much to be desired, but I started having more fun when I reached maps that had more breathing room for running and gunning. The lesser maps really feel like they were early efforts, with some consisting almost entirely of cave crawls - made worse by the fact that many of them have hidden lines on the automap. Another thing to note: Ritenour seems to like putting things very close to the edge like a key or a switch, so make sure you check every corner carefully, as some solutions were very close to a cliff edge. Falling off could spell your Doom, as often the lower cliff ledges damage the player with no escape. There were also very thin ledges which could be climbed, so that was another easy to miss solution. Despite the low points dragging the experience a bit I greatly enjoyed the visual work of crashing waves, a clever skybox and nice island locales with mountainous structures and buildings. It was worth a visit in Doom's earthen vanilla equivalent - and it's quite the achievement for something this old, I just wish I could see where I was going in those darn caves...

      here for the seventeenth installment of dwspd, the theme is to build a canyon. like the previous installment, this is a relatively common theme for mapping, therefore the maps are expected to be pretty decent, and well they mostly deliver. once again Fredrik's map is the first one, and it blows everything else out of the water. kind of a bad thing to make it the first map to be honest though, because it could make some players believe that the other maps after it would be just as good, but that won't be the case when you play the rest, as they don't really have as much bite as that one does. to further exemplify that, once again the MAP02 slot is disappointing in comparison, while MAP06 and MAP07 are both unfinished (nothing but layout in MAP06, while it's pretty much impossible to get the red key in MAP07. not the worst to offer, and Fredrik's map serves as an insane opening challenge.

      dwspd's sweet sixteenth installment focuses on the theme of abandoned mines. now that's a good map to make a theme on, MAP26 is a personal favorite of mine for Doom 2, and these maps as a whole do pretty well to capture that theme. of course there's a few weak ones like MAP02, but at least they adhere to the theme. many of the maps have low monster counts and low challenge overall. the exception is naturally Fredrik's map, one of his most unforgiving. pretty ballsy to actually make that the first map to play here (you don't need the blue key by the way). not much else to say overall, other than thematically speaking this did pretty great.
