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

      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.
