About This File

It's that old cliche'd Doom storyline where a bunch of scientists (even though they look like marines) are doing those damned gateway experiments again! Only this time you aren't pulled into Hell...

Neat little tech demo of every ZDoom feature under the sun, absolutely terrible gameplay. There are too many issues to list, but the oddest is that teleporters pretty much always face you the exact opposite of the way you're intended to go. Literally why? Who would ever think of doing things like that?

 

And extremely grating music as well.

An amazing foreshadowing of the power of ZDoom.

needed work in the gameplay department -- lots of annoying jumping sections and bad enemy placement. however, this wad exhibits amazing atmosphere and visuals that still look good even today. in fact I didn't believe that this was released in 2003 until I looked at the upload date; it felt like something somebody would have made today. 3/5 would have been an easy 5/5 if the gameplay wasn't so bad.

This is a mixed bag - graphics, music, atmosphere, all that is great, and I mean GREAT, it's one of the weirdest and coolest wads I've ever played. This is crippled heavily by gameplay, jumping sections are annoying and sometimes you get teleported to a small place only to be butchered by monsters behind you. There are many interesting ideas and it feels very unique and fresh even today. If it wasn't for the bad gameplay, this would probably be one of the most memorable wads of all time.

Void is certainly one of the most avant-garde maps ever made. the jumping is actually not bad for once and the fist was upgraded. I liked literally everything in this map, perhaps the biggest change was the fists, which while functional to Hexen's gauntlets, allow for more range, and it's perfect for conserving ammo. punching imps is pretty easy to do. the Hexen enemies are actually pretty easy to tangle in Void with the Doom arsenal, the new Unmaker actually functions like a Phoenix Rod from Heretic. I guess the weapon progression is good enough, the plasma gun is a better choice against the cyber than the other guns at the time.

 

overall though, Void's combat is a bit lackluster, as it makes way for puzzle stuff that involves ZDoom's jumping abilities plus having to go back and forth. Hexen-like, naturally. remember to place those skull keys on that altar each time, but also look out for all sorts of nasty traps. the corridor to the cyberdemon battle is probably the worst kind, while others like the shrinking puzzle and fighting the spiders is unique (remember to get the gear and put it in the switch box, and then use the switch even though your guy says "guess I'm too small to use this switch"). the endgame is basically watching your step as you head all the way down, make sure to do so, and the Heresiarch battle is somewhat of a hit, the stupid troll floors are dumb, and there's likely bouts of waiting because he loves throwing up the invincibility cubes, this battle is somewhat rough around the edges but it isn't too terrible. all of this in one large, pretty map too. great work.

If God doesn't know lust, he isn't all-knowing. If God does know lust, he isn't all-good. Flawless map!

Reminds me of the agonizingly boring puzzles of Hexen. This is not DooM.

Looks awesome but I stopped playing after falling for 50 somethingth time. The jumping required to beat this map is something reminiscent of a Half-Life type of game which doom isn't. That is PAINFULLY ANNOYING and b'cuz of that I give this 1/5. Architecture is lovely and of course the opening scene is well done.

3/5. If the rating was only for looks, I'd give this 5/5 stars, but the gameplay isn't exactly great... And as many others have said, the jump puzzles are very annoying. A sequel with more thought put into gameplay would be just great. :)

I find using the chasecam to be useful in the jumping sequences. Everything about this wad is legendary, even if you hate jumping.

Void is everything a Doom level should be after 10 years. Innovative, gorgeous, and a blast to play.

      Could have used a bit less nukage, but overall it was pretty enjoyable.

      Powerful and ambitious map made during the middle of the golden era of DOOM mapping. An atomic bomb of psychedelia and subversive sexuality inspired by the early works of Akira Kurosawa. Once played, never forgotten.

      I've heard some of the larger/popular mappers such as Jimmy and skillsaw have been real quiet since the release of this.

      Found this old wad from a recent WADbot Twitter post so I thought I would give it a try with Skill 5 Zandronum bots out of curiosity.     Pellejos.wad is a simple DM map from June of 1994 with LOTS of skin textures. Sadly this map hasn't age well due to its terrible layout with only Shotguns with a secret chaingun & chainsaw(seriously why did early 90s mappers put secrets in DM maps!?). One positive thing I will say about it is that it has decent texture alignment but other than that its a relic that age terribly.     EDIT: Bump the rating from 1 to 2 stars because the mappers first map QUIRUL.WAD was so bad that this wad feels like it was put in more effort than I originally thought.
