About This File

Welcome to this new release of "House Of Pain 2". I have converted all the original maps to the Hexen format supported by ZDoom and added some "special effects" too. In some maps the design is still mostly that of the first release, so don't be surprised if some spots may look a bit dumb or too easy or even evidence of scarce editing ability... :) Other maps (e.g. MAP09) have undergone a better and wider process of enhacement. The maps i think were better "enhanced" are Map03 Map05 and Map09. Take a look at the README file to get more detiled info and to read the 'Mission Briefings' for each map.

Other info: single player levels. The setting can vary from hi-tech bases to hellish locations. Many open areas present. Each map can be completed independently from the others, but I'd reccomend the play them in the order.

There are ten levels. I played the first; I played half of the first. It's a 1994/95-era map jazzed up with some ZDoom features - security cameras, underwater bits, ambient sounds etc. Nonetheless the layout and gameplay are pure 1994, tedious and square and undetailed. If only the author had spent more time learning how to make good-looking, entertaining levels, rather than learning about Zdoom.

      it should be obvious to those who are playing this that this is NOT another Doom 64 TC. it's recreating the levels of Doom 64 as Doom II levels, which is why you see other monsters and a few changes to layout as well.   i'm not gonna give this a good score though. but this may be because I just don't like Doom 64's levels in general. even when you cut out the atmosphere and enhance the gameplay and layout of the maps here there's still some bashful puzzles to solve and well, the levels are longer than they really are. my Doom 64 opinion of course.

      Overall is nice, but I'm not much into small maps crowded with monsters, other than that, looks like a decent megawad

      Sorry, but can't give more stars to this megawad, it gets really tiresome to start like 6 times the same map with a different door each time and the and the innecesary overstuff of ammo and guns just kill the fun of Doom being about managing your resources.  It can be some kind of fun opening a terminal in GZDoom and setting SV_fastWeapons to 2

      Played on UV, continuous, GLBoom+   This is a very absorbing and well put together Episode 2 replacement. The difficulty is cranked up incrementally throughout, and towards the end becomes seriously challenging, though always fair. Map 7 is particularly memorable, with its 500 monsters and a big surprise in the blue key room, as is the hellish descending escalator in Map 9. The final level is absolute mayhem, with 9 Cyberdemons and a supporting cast of 300+ sidekicks, but with a properly worked out strategy it's beatable: you need to make good use of infighting, plus it helps to be on the lookout for a secret area that isn't all that secret....   Not sure that any game ever merits an absolute 5 star rating, which implies that no improvement is possible, but this is certainly approaching 95/100 territory.   Definitely looking forward to checking out ConC.E.R.Ned by the same author.
