About This File

For those of you who have played through my previous levels and expect all of them to be smallish, like the existing ones, then prepare yourself for a major change. This my largest independent map (so far ;-) that I can still call coherent, weighing in at 300k but still being perfectly playable. It's like four small maps joined together to make one large base. It's totally non-linear, and there are about six or seven distinctive areas in it. Demo-recorders should have lots of fun finding all different routes through here... On the last day, I found that ZenNode refused to compile the map's nodes without crashing, and I also found that it had screwed up the map into random junk, and I basically said "AAAARGGGHHH!!!!!!". I had a backup copy though, and I recompiled it with my trusty BSP.

Masterfully decorated level. Very neat looking spacestation and a good romantic midi. The gameplay isn't that hot - a lot of monsters but their placement is poor and generally not very threatening. Also there is a couple of bugs, I found at least two places where you can easily get stuck. But I still enjoyed it because everything else was so nice. It is not from 1996 by the way: the date above says 2001 and in the readme there is a line "back in 1996".

This is dated January 1996. It's a techbase / warhouse with some intricate detail. The design is often a bit cramped but it's not bad. It has a non-linear layout that lets you explore most of the map from the start, although it feels random at times and it's hard to navigate. You fight about 150 mostly weak monsters in a fairly small space. But there isn't much progression and you get masses of health; I wandered a bit trying to find the red key.

As is typical of Metabolist, this level has very square architecture and an overabundance of ammo and powerups. It looks relatively decent notwithstanding a few dumb detailings, but the crouched yet easy difficulty with an awkward progression make it a rather poor level to play through. The music, which is rather gay in mood, does not fit in a DOOM level. [2/5] ~Chain Mail (11/2007)

      It's a nice wad overall, nice map design, textures and monster placement, enjoyed playing on D-Touch (GZDoom1.8) with Dude4th weapon mod.  My only complain would be the secrets, they have very few to no clues about their position.  There was a problem on E3M5 on the secrets around the squared starting room with stairs, the wall closes and let me stuck inside, had to use idclip to get out from those secret rooms.

      I recently played through this continuously twice on UV. Overall I feel this is an expertly crafted WAD from start to finish. Beautiful scenery, great soundtrack, and intense gameplay. Maybe a little too intense sometimes, and with that it's probably not a WAD I'll recommend to newbies. If less experienced players absolutely have to try it, I suggest playing on the lower difficulty modes as the included readme suggests. Describing the later maps of this WAD as "brutal" on UV is an understatement to say the least.

      Done with these settings:   - GLBoom+ 2.5.1.4. - Ultra-Violence. - Pistol starts. - Saves every 10 minutes or no saving.   This is a funny memewad of concepts and tricks from the Boom engine. It's anything alike classic conventional Doom gameplay, ergo the chosen compatibility, and brings a specific gimmick in a satirical form for each map. Aesthetics are part of the idea too, by way of monotextured layouts of the simplest geometry, such as to find out which sector/linedef has an action, and mostly grey and brown as the predetermined colours, with a bit of green and red bricks in some levels. Besides, skies made of one resized texture, and music from TV series and movies, the ideal recipe for an experience in Doom one doesn't opt for everyday.    Concept-wise, it's much appreciable to experience each map on its own, even more when the idea of carryovers will only block your progress in survival maps: better leave in bad shape and restart freshly than carry less than 15 hit points and be eternally murdered by former human ambushes. This example is one of Pinchy's numerous parodies of unconventional/inconvenient situations we've all been through in Doom. Humping walls to find progress like in primitive maps, having the screen constantly tinted because of pickups, being harassed by incoming projectiles from monsters out of your FOV, that fear of eating your own splash damage because the door can close at any moment, these are just a few of the most hilarious cases I've seen here. It wouldn't be bad to say not all of the gimmicks were clear enough to me, still don't know what's the meme in map 13. Same in some of the later maps, they seemed to have less ridiculous and more serious content, or at least not something different from earlier maps, but if anything I support that seemingly passion for zombiemen hordes, which held up my enjoyment most of the time. Funnily enough, it wasn't until the very last map that I laughed out loud at doomguy's surroundings, and there was nothing else than THE END messages under a sky in fireblu. Guess I couldn't hold my laugh for too long.   Secret-wise, it's interesting to me that in a wad of this category the only existing secrets serve as a combination of the gimmick in question and helpful extras for survival. The second map's way to hide secret sectors is quite funny indeed. As for favourite maps, I found the concepts in map 02, 04, 07, 09 and 15 to entertain me more, last one because it tickled my fancy for exploration. Some of the rest like 05, 07, 11 and 14 woke my other feelings, not only they made me laugh but also feel tense, those imps and troopers could not beat me!... not more than twice...   Overall, even if not all of the maps made sense, or had strange concepts I didn't understand, the point was to laugh, and I believe that was achieved here. Because laughter is good for the organism, check this out. My rate is 7/10.

      Not too shabby. Very intricate level with halls & rooms to explore taking up almost every square inch of the castle. You do have to look through pretty much the whole place to find the necessary keys, but you'll have fun in the process. Most of the gameplay is pretty simple run & gunning of mooks but there are a couple neat traps, like the teleporting/telefragging area and the exit. Despite the large and labyrinthine design of the level, it doesn't get boring or easy to get lost in due to the abundance of landmarks (mainly sector furniture) and high interconnectedness. Texture alignment is quite bad, but oh well. There are some replaced sounds which are a bit odd but not bad, which kind of encapsulates the whole wad.
