About This File

My first level constructed for DOOM ][. Feedback always welcome. I used primarily the new textures from DOOM ][ because they are, well, new. I of course threw in some of the new monsters. This level is, like the MUD series of wads (not by me), absolutely filled with monsters, ammunition and health. You may want to try a tactic that I developed from playing the MUD wads: Open up a door, back away and send a few rocket rounds into the room. This should serve to thin out their ranks a bit, making the room more manageable.

One suggestion: Be careful when getting the blue key or you may find yourself unable to get out of the room that it is in. I suggest saving the game just before getting it.

There are a few problems with DEU2 (although it is the best DOOM ][ editor currently avail- able). I could not make normal fast opening doors as the ceiling would come down instead. I was originally planning to make the level quite large (> 1000 vertices), but the memory drain on deu 2 was such that I had to stop early. Some of the functions were no longer available and the editor started to make mistakes. Eventually deu would no longer save the level.

A medium-sized map from the early days of Doom. The design is mostly pretty good for the time, with lots of traps, secrets, and room to explore and get lost a bit. There is one spot where you can easily get stuck if you don't land on the rising floor in time...unless there's something I'm missing. There are also some freaky nodebuilding bugs here and there.

I liked it - rebuild the nodes to play it (thanks EarthQuake) - you have to skip a teleport linedef to trigger a secret

      this is a mockery of two of the best wads of all time.  on top of that gameplay sucks.  don't get it for your sake.

      Another solid mapset that captures the PSX version feel perfectly. Maps comes in all flavors, from techbases and urban areas to the menacing void and, of course, HELL and also has some unexpected secrets which you might play it to see. Of course, I absolutely love the PSX version of Doom and this one is no exception. Gameplay speaking, it's pretty balanced and thought out nicely...with ambushes, good monster placement and really nasty traps which you must avoid it at all costs. One thing that will help you a lot is the addition of a new weapon...seriously, that thing is powerful...check it out and try. Maps have a nice look that helps you to be inmersed in the atmosphere and coupled with the music, it's much better.   Great recommendation, give it a try and you'll have a fun time.

      Since I tested the map, I can say that playing it again it still surprises me the amount of effort and detail of the gameplay used, like a lot of portals, clever effects like the one used before you pick up the yellow key saying nope and many nice references including a special secret. Gameplay itself for combat is pretty straightforward with some nasty stuff for you in the Nightmare difficulty. Try that out by all means. Really solid stuff which I totally recommend you folks and play it.

      When first reading this wad's description I thought this will be a 1994 style map, where someone just tried to recreate his office building to shoot up his colleages. Boy, was I wrong!   Going Down emerged as one of my favourite megawads so far, with its very clever use of small to medium map space and interesting gameplay mechanics in every single map. The first couple of maps start innocent enough, but soon you will find yourself navigating literal crawl spaces, thinking about use of space and / or slight puzzle mechanics just before being thrown into hell itself and fighting for your life. Going Down is designed as a literal descent into hell, which was the most beautifully realized aspect of it. How every map slightly changes into a more and more hellish theme is just great, great design work. Even though the later maps delve into slaughter territory I must admit that I still quite enjoyed it. Actually this was the first time I enjoyed being slaugthered and figuring out how to approach the map.   Going Down is simply an amazing piece of work, oozing quality from start to finish and rewarding the player with incredible elevator music inbetween. A must play.
