Review : This is funny!
Comic styled medieval weapons.
And a knight replaces pinky.
Primary purpose : Fun
Title : ZelDoom (splitted version)
Filename : zellev.wad zelstuff.wad (former one ZELDOOM.WAD)
Note by the uploader : This add-on was originally published as
ZelDoom.wad, that was intended to be merged into
the DooM2-IWAD via NWT. It was a demo of an
apparently abandoned TC. I found it at
archive.org in the backup of the homepage of
the creator. The email adresses in the textfile
are apparently dead. I insert them here just for
reference. The original ZelDoom.wad is here
converted into an IWAD- and sourceport-friendly
external PWAD-format, using the deutex-way. I
have split up the stuff into zellev.wad (the demo
level and it's assoziated data) and zelstuff.wad
(the stuff, that can be used with any other
doom-level). In that way the graphics from the
demo level do not harm any longer the appearance
of the original doom levels, when you play with
the new weapons and enemies.

Description : zelstuff.wad
A sword for the chainsaw, a sling for the
pistol, magic hands for the shotgun(s), a comic
weapon for the plasma gun, a boxing glove for
the fist and a comic knight replaces the pink
demon. The status bar face is now a nice heart.
A demo level with new graphics on the walls and
floors. There is no chaingun in it, so there is
no honest way to get it. Are you honest?
