About This File

A set of 15 maps designed to be played as an episode (i.e. not a pistol start for each). The author suggests skipping the first three levels and considers 06-15 to be his best work. See the original text-file (included here as !grimripper_eng.TXT) for more information.

Note that the batch files referred to in the original text-file are not included here, as their purpose was to load 15 separate wads simultaneously. For the user's convenience, I have combined these 15 maps and 1 demo (all unaltered) into a single wad using Wintex.

Base

New levels from scratch.

Build Time

about 20 h and more of my life/ 1 levl i guess :(

If not for first few levels, it plays great. Some later maps look fine. Download recommended. JB PS: thanx to Graham for uploading!

there is nothing awe-inspiring about this megawad. there is also nothing in this megawad that will really make you hate it either. just...an average megawad. given that it was done in an old editor (DEU2), treat it as such.

Looks quite ugly, but it has some nice moments. Gameplay is more or less okay. Overall it isnt anything special. 3/5 - Damned

It has its good points, but parts of it just don't work so well as they should. Its not the greatest that's for sure. On the first level when you pick up the armor, the lift falls and you're stuck in that area-that was an unfair design cue.

      Played on UV, continuous, ZDoom, took just over 2.5 hours to complete. Quite enjoyable, difficulty varies but never excessive. I particularly liked map 2, which had an interesting layout, good use of revenants, pain elementals, damaging floors and was tight on health (if you didn't discover one of the soul spheres). The final level is a bit slaughterish in a sort of fun, unstressful kind of way, unless the player opts to go into a series of small side rooms towards the end, where things hot up considerably.....   Overall just short of four stars, 3.8 let's say.

      Its a very simple map focused in one theme Slaughter, map filled whit revenants and other monsters has you progress, it's indeed hard but looks beatable, if you're a pro gamer give it a try.

      the community is very selective when it comes to liking strange things. you have weird mapsets like this and nicolas monti sets, and they are either hated, liked, or completely ignored altogether. i mean, just look at how this one is structure, no sign of anything realistic, the monsters and textures are laid out in various ways. and then there's a few jumping parts to the maps.   but in the end, it is still very much playable. I believe this is what matters most. who cares about the author's opinions on things at this point. as long as he makes a mapset playable from start to finish, it can be played and even replayed at anyone's leisure. therefore, i will award this 5 stars. it was the kind of thing you can expect if you play a joe-ilya megawad, but if you mustered enough courage not to immediately call his work crap upon booting up the game and seeing and playing the maps, then it's all fine and dandy. it's just something to get used to.

      This wad was quite a love/hate relationship for me. Episode 1 and 2 were fantastic. They flowed so well and were challenging without being stupid. Sadly once I got to episode 3 the wad took a turn for the worst. Most of episode 3 is too dark, too big, too confusing, and too full of mandatory damaging sectors without a radsuit. Episodes 1 and 2 were a blast but 3 and 4 just felt like a lot of work. I had to use the console to give myself radsuits and light amp goggles many times. Its no fun to find a secret soul sphere if you're just gonna burn it all away crossing lava without a radsuit. In the end I'd highly recommend the first 2 episodes. They're what Doom is all about; fast fun simple maps. The later half was quite the opposite.
