About This File

They're back. This time it's not the moons they are after, but Mars itself. There is a hive/colony on the surface, and you (lucky you!) have been chosen to lead the attack. But your company never made it down, and you are the only one left. You have some explaining to do.

Assuming, of course, that you can make it back.

This is the first four levels. I hope to have the rest of them done soon. As I finish them, they will show up at the ftp site on infant2

If you are the hack-n-slash type, you won't make it very far in these levels. Most of them require some thought, and a LOT of F6. However, I have made it through on Ultra-Violence to the end of Level 4, so it CAN be done. Good luck!

Four easy medium sized maps set in a simple spacious techbase/cavern setting with lots of small monsters (nothing bigger than a demon to be found). There are some problems with stuck monsters, and some sector faults, which hampers gameplay slightly. Otherwise the gameplay is decent -- classic basic dooming, with rising walls used for progression and traps. Secrets are needed to progress sometimes but they are placed logically and/or marked. -fast could be challenging. --2/5

      this is a mockery of two of the best wads of all time.  on top of that gameplay sucks.  don't get it for your sake.

      Another solid mapset that captures the PSX version feel perfectly. Maps comes in all flavors, from techbases and urban areas to the menacing void and, of course, HELL and also has some unexpected secrets which you might play it to see. Of course, I absolutely love the PSX version of Doom and this one is no exception. Gameplay speaking, it's pretty balanced and thought out nicely...with ambushes, good monster placement and really nasty traps which you must avoid it at all costs. One thing that will help you a lot is the addition of a new weapon...seriously, that thing is powerful...check it out and try. Maps have a nice look that helps you to be inmersed in the atmosphere and coupled with the music, it's much better.   Great recommendation, give it a try and you'll have a fun time.

      Since I tested the map, I can say that playing it again it still surprises me the amount of effort and detail of the gameplay used, like a lot of portals, clever effects like the one used before you pick up the yellow key saying nope and many nice references including a special secret. Gameplay itself for combat is pretty straightforward with some nasty stuff for you in the Nightmare difficulty. Try that out by all means. Really solid stuff which I totally recommend you folks and play it.

      When first reading this wad's description I thought this will be a 1994 style map, where someone just tried to recreate his office building to shoot up his colleages. Boy, was I wrong!   Going Down emerged as one of my favourite megawads so far, with its very clever use of small to medium map space and interesting gameplay mechanics in every single map. The first couple of maps start innocent enough, but soon you will find yourself navigating literal crawl spaces, thinking about use of space and / or slight puzzle mechanics just before being thrown into hell itself and fighting for your life. Going Down is designed as a literal descent into hell, which was the most beautifully realized aspect of it. How every map slightly changes into a more and more hellish theme is just great, great design work. Even though the later maps delve into slaughter territory I must admit that I still quite enjoyed it. Actually this was the first time I enjoyed being slaugthered and figuring out how to approach the map.   Going Down is simply an amazing piece of work, oozing quality from start to finish and rewarding the player with incredible elevator music inbetween. A must play.
