About This File

Action Doom is meant to try and bring back the run and gun feeling from the old 2D shooters like Contra and Metal Slug. In the tradition of such games there are no bullet weapons, only projectiles. And just like Contra every enemy and subsequently you, all have but one hit point, aside from bosses and mini bosses.

To make the game feel more 2D and less frustrating, you will never be attacked from behind, and the level is entirely linnear.

The sheer amount of custom assets and attention to fun, immersive details is undeniably impressive! Its unfortunate as I feel the gameplay itself is a little unbalanced - bullshit deaths abound. Its like those tough-as-nails NES games, I guess. 3 for gameplay, 5 for all the TLC that clearly went in.

It's a pretty good gameplay mod with some nice design and fun gameplay, but it is ultimately overrated. I would say give this one a go if you are bored or looking for a cool new way to spice up Doom. 4/5 ~havok2000

      Overall is nice, but I'm not much into small maps crowded with monsters, other than that, looks like a decent megawad
    • By Gato606 · Posted
      Sorry, but can't give more stars to this megawad, it gets really tiresome to start like 6 times the same map with a different door each time and the and the innecesary overstuff of ammo and guns just kill the fun of Doom being about managing your resources.  It can be some kind of fun opening a terminal in GZDoom and setting SV_fastWeapons to 2

      Played on UV, continuous, GLBoom+   This is a very absorbing and well put together Episode 2 replacement. The difficulty is cranked up incrementally throughout, and towards the end becomes seriously challenging, though always fair. Map 7 is particularly memorable, with its 500 monsters and a big surprise in the blue key room, as is the hellish descending escalator in Map 9. The final level is absolute mayhem, with 9 Cyberdemons and a supporting cast of 300+ sidekicks, but with a properly worked out strategy it's beatable: you need to make good use of infighting, plus it helps to be on the lookout for a secret area that isn't all that secret....   Not sure that any game ever merits an absolute 5 star rating, which implies that no improvement is possible, but this is certainly approaching 95/100 territory.   Definitely looking forward to checking out ConC.E.R.Ned by the same author.

      Um lol the TITLEPIC, also this wad lets you shoot crates to lower them and get ammo, and I like how the Minecarts puzzle was recreated using only Pain Elementals, however I have to say this isn't really well done, the puzzles are weird and you're expected to hug, shoot and press walls and some weird "Dormant" monsters, I applaud the effort that went into recreating the layout of the level, could use some 3D Floors and some Slopes though, but the visuals aren't all that great and the puzzles are somewhat different so if you haven't played the original level this will confuse you even more than their Decay counterparts, partly due to lack of hints and the weird and confusing visuals (I keep using the word confusing but there's really no better way to describe it).   1 star for the layout Faithfulness (barely), 1 star for naked Rosenberg.

      Fun map, with some decent design. I don't get the last teleport though, where the player can use the teleport to teleport to exactly the same place.
