About This File

Half-Baked Meaningless Babble: Ok folks, here it is, the long awaited (haha) DRDEATH1 patch wad for your killing pleasure. I enjoy DOOM wads with a space station motif, but I don't exactly enjoy running around trying to solve all kinds of puzzles. There are a few things to figure out in DRDEATH1 but nothing extreme. This is a level designed with killing in mind. Getting trapped in a little room with 4 barons of hell sucks, so you won't find anything harder to kill than a cacodemon. I prefer getting in shotgun fights with the sergeants and being overrun by the little bastards, so thats what I have created. Lots of former humans, sergeants, and imps with a few demons and cacodemons thrown in. I also indulge in two more of my favorite scenarios: big rooms and dodging fireballs. You'll see. This is a good size level with 500 something enemies so I recommend a pretty speedy 'puter.

Worthless Statistics: Things: 534 Vertexes: 1382 Linedefs: 1352 Sidedefs: 2048 Sectors: 238 Platforms: 23 Why am I telling you this?

This mpa is honestly not worth all the hype dr.death has given it. Lacks in detail and gameplay, plus is not very challenging. 1 star - Kirby

This wad isn't great by modern standards, but if you put it in its time period you see its actually pretty good. The gameplay is just a fun blast-fest, with no real danger of death. Plus, it looks like the author actually had fun making this.

      For a wad made in 1995 it's a pretty convincing church, I like how detailed it is, as well as the graveyard, too bad it is quite short because it's fun (Although I understand that, as a deathmatch level, making it too large can make it unfun to play). The exit gates are an awesome detail too. Definitely check it out 5/5 stars   - xX_Lol6_Xx

      Upon the release of The Ultimate Midi Pack for Doom 1 that replaces all midi slots w/ original compositions, I thought to myself "Hell Yeah, now I have an excuse to play DTWiD!". Besides the shameless plug, I would recommend everyone to give that pack a listen and perhaps a spin w/ this wad b/c god damn does it go together like peanut butter and nutella.   Onto DTWiD: Well, the people behind this wad accomplished the goal of mimicking the style of John Romero, Sandy Petersen, and last but not least Tom Hall. Every level breathes like it was made by any of the three gentlemen, and god damn I had a blast w/ this one. While certainly not as hard as your Plutonia, Rowdy Rudy 1+2, Hell To Pay, or even Good Morning Phobos, it has its own moments where it doesn't pull its punches. However, one of my main gripes w/ this wad is that there's a lot of secrets to find if you're a completionist like I am, as some of them are a bit tricky to hunt down. The maps are way bigger than the OG John, Sandy, and Tom Hall levels, and while it's great to mesh some good fights here and there, it at times felt like a slog to go through b/c of the size of some of these maps. E1 was the weakest in terms of fights here, as expected that you won't be fighting anything tougher than hitscan, imps, and pinkies. While the design was great, I admittedly got lost a few times trying to get my bearings and know just where the hell I need to go. E2 was a bigger improvement upon E1, and had a few moments where it was spooky, like things are really beginning to hit the fan. E3 (which unironically in the OG UD was my least fav episode that I couldn't even bring myself to finish) was probably the best episode of the bunch, everything was oppressive and coming for you, luckily there was an abundance of ammo to help you out in messy situations, more traps and better set ups than what E2 had and a way better episode than E1. The secret levels of all 3 episodes are the highlight of the wad.   While I wouldn't say that this wad is a "must play" b/c over time I started to get a bit exhausted on the size of some of the levels and figuring out where I need to go, and especially since I binged E1, E2, and E3 3 days each respectively, I had my moments where I was like "Please God let this be over". Overall, I would say this is more of a wad that if you really wanna check out, go for it, or a good recommendation for people who are just beginning their journey of playing community wads and want something ez to play.

      Blue broken rooms and ugly texturing, lots of HOMs, lots of monsters and no way to resemble any house of sort. Or to tribute The big Lebowsky movie at all. A very bad old style jokewad map, unfunny at all.

      A medium sized map sets in a sort of church surrounded by burning men, graveyards and other type of stuff around. The level is simple but fun to play, both in SP and DM. Same simplicity reflects in the detailing work and fell.

      A wooden and metal structure that also have some prisons, hidden locked doors as normal textures and everything here is brown, very brown. Overall a fun map with a fun gameplay and a spooky atmosphere, especially thanks to the music. Cool stuff.
