About This File

This is a try to recreate Doom as it would be done in the 80's :P. My first DM package. So it's not as great as Exec.wad, brit11.wad or dwango serie... Remember 80's? Oldschool graphics from old arcade games? Expect hyperactive graphics and music, fast Deathmatch and a very original concept. It's just weird. Try it!

Pretty damn coo, but also headache inducing. Music kicks large amounts of ass.

I loved it, a great variety of retro style maps. each with their own unique style and layout, plus, music is chosen randomly so it gives it a nice "New" feeling to it, and it also stops players from getting fed up of hearing the same music for the same level. Definitely worth trying this out with your friends.

Just like 8bitctf, so I'll just copy my review: "This is excellent; the graphic design is like a red-hot poker in the eyes, the levels look like the best arcade ever, and the soundtracks are very good as well. The attention to detail is impressive and I particularly liked the transparent animated bar graphs. Even though it's mostly made of untextured walls and it's 978kb big, it's like a complete Doom makeover. The warning about eye strain/epilepsy is completely justified, though."

I love this thing. The graphics, simple though they may be, are used in such a way that it makes the levels look really awesome. True to the old-school gaming appearance. Fun DM also. 5/5

      Dear Doomkid,

      I was involved in the design and play-test of each of these levels. Please know these were created from *scratch* and we spent our time making sure the levels were as playable as possible. We were not terribly focused on texturing, other than to give players positional awareness in different parts of each arena.

      Map 6 -- Offices of Death -- Was intentionally designed to be as accurate a representation of the office we worked in as possible. Admittedly, playability was taken as a second priority. We did manage to create working "elevators" and "stairs" to give the illusion you were going up and down floors. I was pretty happy with how we did.

      Considering it was 1996, and no way to simply "Google" different ideas. Your best bet at the time was to jump onto the Usenet and hope you could find a decent board with active members. Other than that, it was pretty much all self-taught.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the other levels. Yes, they are old-school, big arena, style. We spent a LOT of time trying to make sure they were as balanced as possible, with escape routes, and required risks for rewards.

      Excellent stuff for the mid-1990s. Lots of action, good layouts, pretty challenging on UV.    9/10

      For 1995 design is ok. But is VERY short. 3 min in slow pace.  Map is easy af.

      Square rooms, no details, ugly. Secrets aren't flagged as secret. Only for crappy-wad-lovers.

      For 1995, not bad. Some ideas, are really cool, but they're mixed with dumb things. Texture misalignments are common. Overall I had nice time with this.
