About This File

One evening, just about 2 months ago, I had this idea of creating just one ZDoom map together with some other mappers and friends. Well, who else could be mor qualified as the ZDoom.org community itself? :) That was the day, when I opened a new thread over at the ZDoom forums and telling those people my plans, and the rest is just history which can be read over at: http://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?t=2935 By the way, this is the longest thread ever in the history of Forums@ZDoom.org with over 1000 replies (no spam) and over 10.000 views, amazing, isn't it? :) Thx goes to all the contributors, they really worked hard and also very fast, so this could be released within one month of developement!

Great WAD, but why does my screen fade to black and then nothing happens after I beat the boss?

The new textures, new monsters, new music, small puzzles, and level progression is really a shining example of what Doom really can be without changing the heart and soul of the game. This is without a doubt five stars from me. Kudos to the scripts and expertly used new monsters.

Really really over-rated. This is only mediocre, none of the wads I saw in the 2004 Caco Awards really deserved an award, they were just boring and not fun IMO. Meh.

Great in all aspects. I just HAD to quit before it started, though didn't I? stupid me stupid me stupid me... Anyway I see no reason not to give it anything below 5 stars, I even get mentioned in the end credits despite my leaving unexpectedly. Thanks Bio :) . 5 well-deserved stars. --Destroyer

One of the best levels this year. Although I did run out of ammo around the megasphere part of the level. I probably just screwed up or missed something. Can't wait for the next one. 5/5 -DarkSoul

I realize that I'm one of the people who contributed to this, but I only did a small bit. I'm giving 5/5 stars for the parts I didn't make. :P

      Having been recommended to me earlier, a while back i gave this WAD a serious try, whilst by now being quite sure it's not on paper something i'd be likely to enjoy.  And so it wasn't, i simply quit in E1M4, but could've just as easily done so already on M1, as my impression didn't change at all as the game went on.   For me, the layouts are far too protracted and downright boring as a result, and the detailing is heavy-handedly generous, and i would even say, not pleasing to my eye.  Long levels often are not a problem when the layout is well-designed, and when one by the end of it has gotten a good grasp of it, but here i never got that feeling, so for me the layout designs are a problem.  No doubt this is partly due to them being expansions of the original maps, but it shows their efficacy and genius - and it shows that the whole idea of expanding such maps may be ill-adviced unless one can truly match that genius, and here that has not been the case. i also did not enjoy the alteration of the original areas to 'modernized' or 'improved' versions.  One main feature of this WAD are the gameplay additions, such as mines, forcefields, radiation areas, new monsters and numerous others, and these i saw as nothing more than gimmicks that didn't add any substance, simply detracting from the elegant simplicity of the game.   As far as gameplay itself goes, on first level there was a severe shortage of health considering the amount of hitscanners, and also some worry about having enough ammo.  On further levels they weren't frivolously given either but that's to be expected (quite a bit of bullet-spongy beasts are present, so it's important to manage it all correctly).  The new monsters didn't add anything to my liking, but i do see what was attempted with them - still, for me they are just a novelty (i sort of like the black crouching figure shooting fireballs, maybe it could be used somewhere and i'd like it...)  Doom is an extremely balanced game, and it's not easy to add to its bestiary without tipping the scales, i'm aware of only a handful of times that it's been successful to my taste.   One interesting thing was the detailed intermission-stats, that even showed as graphs the player's success in past levels and collected/used ammo, health, etc.    i have in the past used the term gimmick-WAD and this is a good example of exactly what i mean with it.  So for me, this had nothing to do with Doom, but i give two stars regardless, mainly for effort and trying something different.  Even so, this is just my personal experience and preference, and i'm glad a lot of people are of a different opinion.  (Played on LZDoom, HMP and continuous.)

      I saw a floor and a ceiling, multiple in fact. Nice that there is no false advertisement here.

      It took me a few hours to get through. Pretty fun and very difficult.
