Excellent ruined city, very good use of color with a plenty of juicy SSG action. Didn't have to look for the secrets btw... (found only soulsphere)

"Be prepaird to die" it says. I had pericarditis a while back - an alarming but non-serious chest condition - and I genuinely thought that I had suffered a heart attack, and that I was going to die. I have come to the conclusion that there is no way to rationalise or deal with the inevitable fact of one's own death, except to remember that you will not know you are dead. The level itself is actually extremely good fun for 1994.

Fun level. Be advised that the secrets are unusually difficult to find, and that you can't complete the level without finding at least some of them.

To above poster: Sorry for leaving the copyright infos in the template. The upload was done, when i was still something like a newbie in wad-uploading. Nowadays i put either the original info in that passage or delete it completely. I uploaded zip and textfile with that part deleted. Greetings Funduke

Chaotic and very carelessly built 1994 map with a few nice moments, but its technical problems are horrible. For example the huge HOM which appears at the start when the platform lowers... At most 3* at that time.

How come this map cannot be used as the basis for modifications or reuse? I created this PWAD and therefore I'm IP owner and I say it has a OpenBSD license.

      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 ;)
