About This File

This is a small deathmatch level for ZDoom, making use of slopes and a fancy little script for a central event in the map. This is my first DM level as well as the first level in which I use slopes. Well, the slopes are not a very active part of the level, they are only decorative. For this level, I created a set of new textures... which took me maybe an hour. I really wanted to build a level that used no Doom 2 textures at all. I do use a few computers from Doom 2, but anyway, it's mostly new. Looking at the map, it's a fast-paced level with few places to camp or hide. This means that you can play it against a single opponent as well as against 7, and get action all the time. The plasma gun is very tricky to get... you'll find out why. Waiting for it is not always the best thing to do since the other players can come from any direction =)

A kick ass map, but could have been much, much larger and less square. --Illogically.inclin ed

      Should have been called "Doom 64 for Boom".   I really wanted to like this more. I mean, I do like it but I feel like the gripes I have regarding it just bring my overall rating for it down too much.   It was interesting to see how, at first, the authors recreated the Doom 64 levels in Doom 2 with just vanilla assets. You can still see some of that in the Boom levels like how revenants and arch-viles are used in place of where traps where. That was an interesting touch and I liked that.   As I got further into it though and more of the Boom tricks were used my thoughts wandered from "hey this is a nice vanilla interpretation" to "man I could be playing Doom 64 EX or Doom 64 Retribution". I really wish they would have stuck with vanilla constraints for this reinterpretation. I would have liked to see how they would have handed nightmare monster placement (would a nightmare imp be worth two imps or three, for example). I feel like using Boom and DeHacked cheapened the experience, like they were trying to replicate Doom 64 as close as possible rather than doing a vanilla Doom (2) interpretation.   Additionally, map 30 can fuck right the hell off with that puzzle bullshit.   Anyway, if you don't mind any of the complaints I made, you'll likely have fun with this. I got some fun out of this as well but to me it feels like it's trying to be exactly like Doom 64 rather than simply a vanilla Doom 2 interpretation of Doom 64. In trying to be exactly like Doom 64, it just makes me want to play that more than this.

      Pretty good. The combat was fun and design wasn't bad at all.

      Despite its age, nice details and well designed. Way how blue key is hidden is really clever. But map is dark and cramped. Enemies are only imps and hitscanners.

      Pretty good map in E1 base style (except Doom2 monsters) Nice design but there some texture alignment issues.
