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.

Fantasmic. Almost like 'Hell Revealed' for Heretic. A legend. Wilou84

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

      This is a solid contender for being the absolute best Megawad that I've ever played.

      I...did not review this, okay. well, it's blue and it's pretty decent and setpiece-y. get used to ribbiks' style and this one is just like all his other maps, very well-designed and fun to play. just watch out for MAP03's final area.

      it's one of those classic 90's wads you can probably just sift through, but it's not that good. plenty of inescapable pits, some awful level progression, and some actually trollish crusher placement lie within this one.

      A few really good maps supported by a bunch of alright ones. Visuals are mostly Plutonia-inspired, with the occasional veering into Shores of Hell type mish-mash architecture. Difficulty is about on par with DOOM2.wad I think. Overall, a rather pedestrian affair, although the standout maps are certainly worth the time.

      BACK TO SATURN X E1: GET OUT OF MY STATIONS REVIEW:   The Good:   - Stunning visuals   - Great monster placement   - Lots of (clever) secrets and they are rewarding   - Enough ammo to keep you going   - The names of the Maps LOL!   - Loads of fun   - Awesome music!   The Bad:   - Not long enough. LOL! I loved it so much, I didn't want it to end!   In Short: I've actually played this fantastic WAD at least 6 or 7 times. Why? This is my second favorite WAD of all time, only bested by its successor, BTSX Episode 2: Fountain of Sparks. I remember the very first time I played it a couple of years ago like it was yesterday. How many times can you say that (in a good way) about a game?   I remember being completely blown away by the architectural designs at the time. I even remember giggling as I sunk in the ocean on the final Map, only to read something like "To Be Continued..." and thinking, "Awww....it's over." But I admit that, like everyone else, I had loads of fun with this.    There is lack of a "customary" final boss (I wasn't certain if this was a "Good" or "Bad" element of the game, hence why it's in neither category above - it really will depend on the player so I kept it neutral). But don't let that deter you! The final "stage" in the last (playable) Map is as memorable as it is wicked, and it'll keep you on your toes just like any other customary boss!   Play this WAD if it's the only WAD you ever play. Definite replay value.   Well deserved Cacoward. Thanks, Team, for making it!   5 out of 5 stars with me.  ~ dylux
