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)

      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.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
