About This File

After playing this wad, I would imagine you'd be asking yourself one ques- tion... "Why?" Why the hell did I spend 2 weeks creating this elaborate modifi- cation of DooM2? Well, as a professional, award-winning commercial animator at a small but reputable studio in Dallas, I found myself with a lot of free time on my hands during a slow project season with very few clients. I was poking around AOL for some game demos I could download when I found the original SIMP- SONS DooM patch created by "Spooky" Steve Blauwkamp and "Decapitated" Chuck Fuoco. The .wav files they chose for the sounds were hilarious, except they ran so long that they'd all run together during game play, making them difficult to listen to. The artwork on the sprites was very creative, although somewhat primitive-looking with a limited number of animated frames per character. It was still pretty fun, but being such a discernable animator, I felt compelled to improve it for my own satisfaction. Besides, I did have a LOT of free time, as I said.

So, if the old DooM2 has become tiresome and dull, these wads will add a whole new look to those drab textures. The original design is almost unrecog- nizable in some places! Now if I can just figure out the level editor...

"the ULTIMATE SIMPSONS-DooM2: Hell in Springfield" Better than the first Simpsons graphic mod. A total conversion on music, sound, textures and sprites, but not change gameplay. 5/5

For some reason it states *** Can't open WAD simpdoom.wad for reading *** - oddly enough, the only WAD this installs is ULSIMPDM.WAD with SIMPDOOM.WAD nowhere to be found.

Possibly the best executed themed graphical and sound TC in the history of videogames. This deserves a higher rating because of its quality and attention to detail.

      Done with these settings:   - Crispy Doom 5.3.
      - Ultra-Violence
      - Continuous combined with pistol start mindset.
      - No saves, mostly.
      Very decent tribute to the original game. Each map is essentially a remix of the ID's levels, built around the same theme and music tracks per episode, albeit with the author's personal changes to the design. Aesthetically, the only notorious difference, and by no means less important, is the texturing he decided to use in some sections. In general the maps look extra polished, there were no signs of misaligned textures, but I wasn't that attentive to be honest. He did left the most distinctive visual features of each map untouched, for example where it's supposed to be a dark secret dungeon, it is a dark secret dungeon, just not copy-pasted.    As said before, Wonderful Doom is just a revamped Ultimate Doom. If you know the game by heart, there may be little room for surprises, so you can take it as a memory test. Of course, the author added his own touch to the gameplay. I would underline the size of the rooms in comparison to the iwad, tending to be more compact though in no way less attractive. In consequence, they lead to a bit more claustrophobic combat, specially throughout the latter episodes, sometimes you'll find yourself in a hairy situation like a slow drop in a cluster of imps and barons coming from the shadows, or starting surrounded of pinkies and barrels to detonate using your ol' peashooter. Another thing is the resource balance, sometimes giving more leeway where there wasn't originally, other times less obvious for the pistol starter. This is part of several plot twists Wraith added here and there to the main concepts to keep it somehow fresh and interesting, but I'm not going to spoil any in particular.    Secret-wise, I guess it's not needless to say almost all of them can be found normally, there is one in E2M9 that can't be triggered due to the teleport line. Otherwise, there are no broken sectors or staircases of secrets (sorry to burst your bubble ;P). There are no disliked maps, and so I'll avoid to pick favourites this time. I also didn't care if most maps were extremely similar to the iwad ones, but that could not be the case for you.   Overall, I won't lie and say this turned out to be thoroughly enjoyable. It's what I expected from an author with such love for plain vanilla Ultimate Doom. Nostalgia fans should give it a go. Well, as long as you wish to "play Original Doom one more time", otherwise if you expect a thing like "Doom the Way ID Did", it might not be wise to download this. My rate is 8/10.

      This is clearly the most groundbreaking, exciting release of the decade. Forget your megawads, this is where its at. Wonderful, delightful, sublime, glorious... all words that dont even come close to expressing just how great this wad is.

      Another abomination in doom mapping. It's crap even in crap category.

      Ugly, rectangular, not enough ammo. In one word: CRAP

      Sound replacement is terrible. Sounds are very annoying. Level also is ugly. Only thing I like is sprites replacement. Kicking nazi asses is same as good like demons ones ;)
