About This File

Well, it's been quite a journey. Hordes of Chaos is finally done, with 25 maps. HOC X has all 4 previously released HOCs, plus the all new HOC 5.

HOC has been changed to HOC Death Edition. It's got 2x the monsters and alot less health. Good luck playing this one! :P

These maps are meant to be a challenge on Skill 4. If you play on Skill 4 and die miserably, don't be surprised. And don't complain, either. Play it on Skill 3! :P

After each map your weapons and ammo are taken. You get to keep your items. This is intentional.

Each map was taken from another project and worked on considerably. Here's where each map originally came from :

E1,E2 All Maps Dark Heretic

E3M1 Monster Mash Vermil's Maps E3M4 E3M2 Painville ZUUL E3M3 Hidden Temple Vermil's Maps E3M7 E3M4 The Four Rooms Black Fortress X E3M5 D'Sparil's Sauna Dark Heretic E1M4

E4M1 Painkiller Vermil's Maps E3M5 E4M2 Tomb Of Naughtyness Crimson Tomb E4M3 The Black Bog Vermil's Maps E3M6 E4M4 Crypt Of Crispy Critters VOL R2 E4M5 D'Sparil's Tower Tower of Pain

E5M1 Hell's Belly Button Trails of D. MAP02 E5M2 Emerald Passage The Lost Gate E5M3 Fortress Of Fortitude Steeple Chase V1.3 E5M4 Catastrohpic Finale Vermil's Maps E1M9 E5M5 Obligatory Secret Map Vermil's Maps E1M1

Slaughtermaps in the style of f.e. Plutonia, thus only for players considering hard gameplay = attractive gameplay. If you like to enter an empty area, then via instant monster popups being faced by a horde of monsters of the same kind, and repeat that about 1500 times, then this is your mapset. Definitely. But if you like gameplay with a tiny little bit of variation, then skip this, because it's repetitive like being made for (obviously nofi) autistics. As this is IMPO a total WOT: 2* for the effort only.

As hard as they tell you in the reviews. Level design remains nice and the introduction of DOOM monsters is a nice touch, but difficulty is really unfair. Would have worked better with a couple custom overkill weapons added to the default roster. 3*

Best mappack I've ever seen for Heretic. It is like a Hell Revelead for Heretic, but with much, much more! Anyone who loves both Heretic and Doom will love this. Oh, and the idiot who said Heretic doesn't deserve this, I'll tell you something: saying something is not worthy anything well-made is an insult to the author and the fans. This wad do not deserve a zero, it is you who deserves it. Next time think before typing, if you actually have a (functional) brain, of course.

Too hard, and the Doom & Hexen monsters don't look good in Heretic, neither does this whole Hell Revealed-style. Sorry. 2/5 because the levels are nice but that's all. Play Heretic: Treasure Chest or GULAG instead.

Pure awesome insanity! This is Doom, Heretic and Hexen rolled into one terrific game. Levels are outstanding and well-made. The only downside is that it's a bit too hard even on Skill 2, but for those who are good at Doom/Heretic and have mastered the skill for very hard WADs like Plutonia, AV and Hell Revealed, this is a must play. 5*/5

Amazing mappack, it's truly HR-Style adapted to Heretic. As I already reviewed the 4 previous episodes, I'll talk about the 5th one, clearly the hardest one, I gave up in skill4, even by saving/loading all the time. The secret level trick for the ring of invincibility is awesome (don't use it too early heh). But E5M1 looked somewhat 'plain' compared to all other maps. 5/5 with a "Legendary" stamp of course. ~Naan

      honestly the weirdest wad that ever released. play it if you have the option.

      The most avant-garde Doom will ever get. Obviously not a WAD for everyone, the core target for such a mod is mainly people who are in video game glitches, corruptions and to some extent, creepypastas (whether that love is ironic or not). Nothing works as it is supposed to. You can hardly understand most of the things that are happening to you. Some of the custom monsters (like the hitscanning corrupted pinky) will put you on edge and keep you paranoid about the ruleset of the game.   The aesthetic of lilith.pk3 is one of a kind, horribly mangling the rendering engine of old ZDoom beyond belief to disform sprites, textures, text and even sound effects. The end result makes close to no sense, your Doom marine sprite is heavily dislocated and looks more like one of those creatures from Alien than a human being and the list goes on and on. The confused looks obviously doesn't always make for clean or concise gameplay, especially in later levels which crank the confusion up to eleven and manipulate the level geometry to do things you thought weren't possible in the game. Even basic things like crushers, slime pits or a turnstile look horribly out of shape and makes the player uncomfortable.   This is essentially what lilith boils down to: an unfamilarity to something we thought we knew by heart, a rising sense of uncomfort as the level design makes less and less sense and offering the player a new perspective on what Doom is. Don't play lilith expecting top-notch Doom gameplay, but play it for the one of a kind experience it offers you. For the better and for the worse, there are no WADs like lilith anywhere and there will never be.

      I think that the combination between shotgun and chaingun combat, and the hitscanner shootouts this WAD offers are really fun and engaging. Pinky Demons are placed in areas where they're not frustrating, (The opposite being something I see very often, nice work Romero :P.) My only issue with this WAD is that one or two of the secrets, specifically those found in the darkened tech room, are sort of esoteric. The one where you have to jump from a platform isn't the worst, but the one for the Mega-Armour is annoying and in my opinion, unfair to find.   Despite these small issues, I think that Phobos Mission Control is an excellent and exciting level to run through, and I applaud Romero for returning to the Doom Community to make new levels.
