Great wad, but still can't find the yellow key... After activating the eye in the flashy room I don't have a clue on how to progress.

Starts strong and ends up using the same textures, enemies and bland rooms, i couldnt even finish the last two rooms without cheats because there was not enough ammo or health.

so difficult it distracts from the actual horror

This reminds me of "The Sky May Be". It's creative, surreal, garish colour scheme and it sticks in the mind. But it's a disaster as a game; the strobing effect is awful and the game consists of shooting hundreds of balloons. The end battle has an impressive amphitheatre and an ominous build-up but the swirling clowns do not impress me. Perhaps the only computer game with Tim Curry (unless there was a game of "Legend").

After the first balloon attack, I wasted the rest of the other balloons. I wasn't gonna take chances.

Funny map, second part is much better, but this is a good beginning. 5/5. It's necessary gzdoom-1-01 for bug with teleporter.

A great wad. Was simultaneously frightening, atmospheric and tons of fun. Make sure you play it at night and by yourself! ****

This is great but it should be under ports/doom2/a-c instead of doom2/a-c

It started off pretty well, but as it continued it seemed to become worse. In the beginning, the encounters seemed to have a bit more meaning. Like the yellow balloon in the bathroom, or the first bouncing skull you encountered. But the later parts were deffinately lacking, and consisted of nothing but ugly undetailed rooms with huge waves of possessed balloons. I had to admit though, some of the new sound effects were cool. Especially the "You... float... too..." one. -craigs

Very solid theme, however the teleport bug\unable to get yellow key really ruins what should be an awesome wad. It would be very nice if the author released a bug fixed version, as it seems to be abit much to revert to an older version of my port for this one wad.

The idea is cool and well done and could have deserved 5 stars, but the map should have been much smaller or easier in my opinion. With this size and difficulty, it's too frustrating. -Milian

Good idea, average execution, utterly boring gameplay. Avoid this wad it is utterly boooooooring. Where's the fun in popping hundreds of balloons in that huge room? The author played too much kaiser_17, the funky colors get really annoying after a few minutes. Play this wad only up to the entrance of the large nogravity room, otherwise your eyes will get seriously hurt. 2/5 - Belial

Good wad but the first and second teleport don't work with me, open the doom builder 2 and modify the first teleport i modify the mapspottag to 0 and the other i modify the sector tag to 0, and then i can teleport to the other parts of the wad... Anyway is a good idea your map but please when you launch this wads test after launch

I pretty much agree with what Belial said up above. (with the exception of the colors part; they never bothered me). When I got to the no gravity room, I thought I was playing some lame joke wad. Boring indeed. 2 out of 5

Creepy atmosphere! Sort of Blood's "Dark Carnival" level merged with Silent Hill! I'm completely stuck on one part, though: How do you get the yellow key? I can't find it anywhere.

Probably neat, if you like acid and bad trips. Otherwise, balloon holocaust and flashing everything gets old quickly. Idea is neat, but map is generally annoying and I stopped playing at large room-with-even-more- balloons, so 2/5 too. -- Brun Ohn

The author has a lot of talent as a mapper, but he's put it to poor effect here to produce a wad that is simply not enjoyable. Keeping it simple is often the way to go if you want people to like playing your maps.

      from a mechanical perspective, this is pretty fucking good. the idea of escaping a torturous prison area by punching your way through makes a whole lot of sense. the big slaughter room is pretty good mechanics wise, especially with the conveyor, the tower controls, and the pickaxe secret. for some reason when a monster telefrags the baron by entering the machine, he somehow manages to survive the barrel teleport for some dumb reason. the escape route out of the castle is admirable, and there's even a dead body to shoot to actually get a secret along the way. the murky gray water with friction is nice.   but from a gameplay perspective, other than the berserk punching at the beginning, this one doesn't offer much to be honest. it's got good ideas but the combat is meh.

      My new favourite set of 32 maps. Definitely the best MegaWAD that Skillsaw has ever made, destroying Valiant. Lots of unexpectedly cool ideas can be found within these solid maps. From the very first level with the neon "Wolf Warp" you know that you're in for a real treat. "Leave your Sol Behind" also blew me away with the whole space ship travel gimmick.   In terms of difficulty: I was playing with Project Brutality on its equivalent of Hurt Me Plenty, so that amped up the difficulty considerably. A couple areas really constrict you for ammo, and according to Skillsaw that was supposed to be a main feature of the WAD but was dropped for a majority of the maps. Occasionally you encounter some slaughter-like areas and maps but nothing that got bland or seemed like a crutch for bad level design. You will face a considerable number of Cyberdemons and Spider Masterminds, which is par-for-the-course when it comes to custom Doom maps.   In my opinon, some guest maps sucked (Nectar Flow) while others fit very well (Culture Shock, Acerols-Orion). Maybe some could say that the second episode did start to blend slightly together from level to level due to the visuals, but I would also say that the second episode had the best content for the MegaWad.   So all in all I'd definitely recommend this Wad to anyone who plays Doom and is looking for a beacon in Doom map design.

      I made the mistake of putting this on UV for my first playthrough. Oops. It was insanely brutal and I didn't have a lot of fun with it. However, after checking out the readme, as suggested I went back for another run on HMP. It's impressive to see the huge difference in difficulty and I appreciate the effort in differentiating the various skill level choices. I definitely recommend new players play it on HMP or lower, that way you can really appreciate the excellent architecture and interesting color scheme, as well as that soothing DKC music that makes for a unique vibe. 4/5 for a HMP playthrough. The only thing lacking here is the amount of maps, and that's OK. I'd just love to see more in this style.   Rating when played on UV: 2/5. For extreme masochists only.

      It's a very impressive megawad with a nice themed ancient Egypt atmosphere, with very nice choosing of textures to contribute to that theme, very nice architecture and impressive (and very risky) twist on the story going from ancient Egypt to alien spaceships, without using hi-pitched colors like in Ancient Aliens. Also, very tough megawad, if you're masochist enough, you can play it with Complex Doom and add LCA for more doses of pain.

      It's okay. Quite easy due to the abundance of artifacts, mana, & health. The level design is fine, nothing special. The only truly bad part was the unmarked puzzle bookcases, forcing you to wallhump the entire library as a last resort. Otherwise it's pretty simple stuff, running around finding keys and smashing monsters. The texturing and lighting aren't fantastic but aren't noticeably bad either. The only glaring issue is that many windows just show a wall textured with the sky texture rather than an area with a sky ceiling. Yet there are perfectly normal outdoor areas. Perhaps the author only figured it out skies halfway through development? Anyways, this is worth your time if you want an hour or two of simple Hexen fun.
