About This File

We worked on this wad together for several months, each person had a week and then passed the wad on. It turned out quite successful and the process was steady. We chose upon a tech-ish theme since we already familiar with that style, and Doom was made for that ;)

This map started out for vanilla doom2.exe but we quickly pushed the limits. Several days before release however, the HOM's and VPO's were vaporized with MANY thanks to BSP. QWERTY and stx-Vile are credited with pinpointing them.

This is from 2003. It's a techbase with a mild retro feel; it's more elaborate than any old-fashioned level, but the design avoids modern source-port features (it reminds me of the Monolith levels). The action is modern, though, with lots of great close-up fighting against tough baddies. It's a bit too switch-hunty at times and the difficulty is erratic, with archviles near the start and no real end battle, but I liked it. There's a good bit with a cage.

I don't usually give five stars to a wad unless it's really exciting, really epic, or really crazy. This is a good bit of Doom-playing though.

I usuall don't give 5 stars to single map wads but this one deserves it. Great gameplay, great design and it's hard. What more can you want from a Spencer map? AV worthy. 5/5 - Belial

Very awesome map. Mix between themes and styles, old school yet new school. Recommended.

I know I probably give 5s too often around here, but I think as a single level this one REALLY deserves it. Great atmosphere, well thought out gameplay, and the kind of elaborate layout that you don't see around too often anymore. Really awesome stuff. This wad is sooooo good it almost hurts. ;) So.... 5/5 I guess? - DeathevokatioN

AWESOME. This had better keep having 5 stars and anyone who lowers the rating needs to leave a review stating why they did not want to give it the magical 5. I'll cry so you can hear me if this rule isn't followed. So be warned: Please refrain from violating my rule!

Excellent. I wish the bully-boy who wrote the previous review would STFU though.

      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.
