MAP01-Style

About This File

This is a map I created inspired by Doom 2's MAP01. I came up with the idea for a MAP01-type level way last year when the MAP01 slot for Freedoom was open, and I figured that it'd be a simple level to do. However, my little brother decided to free up some hard drive space so he could download more games, and in the process deleted my Doom2 directory AND my MP3 directory. Thus, I lost all of the work I had done on it, and gave up in despair. This summer, however, I've spent a lot of time mapping, mainly for Freedoom, and needing to take a break from that, I started a couple of other side projects, and this is one of them. I decided I would resurrect my MAP01-style map, and make it even better than my old one.

good design, but not so "map01" as claimed. 3.5/5 PerOxyd

plays well and looks nice. I would have never thought this is based on map01 if you hadn't told me :) I hope you spanked your brother for what he did... 4/5

It's a decent although very short map, with 38 mostly zombiemen and imps. The end of level boss is a mighty... demon! Who comes charging at you from the final room, in typical style. As others have pointed out, this has almost no resemblance to Map01, and to my eyes it looks more like an Ultimate Doom E1 map - there didn't seem to be any Doom II monsters or weapons apart from a super shotgun in multiplayer only.

      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 ;)
