About This File

This is a compilation of the WADs entered in SargeBaldy's ninth speedmapping exercise. Participants were given 100 minutes to create a Doom or Doom 2 level on a certain theme.

This week's theme is to make a map taking place somewhere in the trashiest part of a town. This could be something like a junkyard, an abandoned run-down factory, somewhere with a lot of alleyways, etc. The kind of place where you wouldn't be surprised to find drug dealers, heh.

Good maps, esp. 02, 03 and 05. Worth playing. BTW, map01 crashes GLBoom.

Pretty average set of levels. Map02 and Map05 are the best of the bunch.

Five city-style maps. Map01 is trivial, basically two rooms and a boss battle against a pair of cacodemons. Map02 feels like a good 1024-style map, it's surprisingly elaborate for 100 minutes' work. Map03 is simpler but larger, quite good. Map04 is just a cityblock grid, pah. Map05 is again surprisingly intricate - a city street at night, with pools of light - but you can run past most of the monsters and finish it in forty seconds or so.

overkill? that's not an overkill. it's very average. probably one of the better of this compilation. but i don't think it's very good.

      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.

      Despite the browns and grays that are prominent in this megaWAD, I found it to be fun. I also found it to be quite the challenge. The first map gives you a taste of what to expect in terms of enemy encounters. The author makes good use of mid-tier enemies to apply pressure on the player. Monster count for most of the maps barely breaks the 150 mark but, as said before, the use of mostly mid-tier enemies puts pressure on the player. I also like how the megaWAD handles level progression. Most of the levels you go through consist of caves, cities, islands, and tech bases in space. In fact, there's only one real Hell-like level and even it's within the confines of the moon base you fight through in maps 21 - 30.   About the only gripes I have with this megaWAD are with regards to maps 32, 29, and 30. I know the text file and map 31 give warnings about map 32 but there really should be some kind of alternate exit in map 32 instead of trapping you in place if you don't pass one of the puzzles. I wasn't a fan of how close quarters the IoS fight was in map 29, especially since it can get cramped quickly with monster spawns. Finally, the randomization of what keys spawn during your escape in map 30 isn't fun either. 10 minutes seems like plenty of time but between navigating the vent system (again) without light goggles and dealing with mid-tier enemies, that 10 minutes can get eaten up really quick.   Overall, it's still a fun megaWAD. I'd recommend at least giving it a shot.
