About This File

Here at last is the Doom 2 version of Castle of the Renegades, the epic e2m1 for the original Doom. I didn't make too many changes in the stuctures of the original, but I incorporated most of the new monsters and some of the new graphics and linedef types. This wad was so long in coming because I couldn't find a Doom 2 compatible editor that I liked that was capable of holding it. Thanks to Ben Morris for allowing me access to beta versions of his excellent editor, DCK.

Kinda legendary early castle map with some very memorable areas such as the baron restaurant. Worth a look.

Feels more like two levels, inside the castle there's an open room with 4 doors, 3 of them locked. From there on it's very linear. There's a restaurant and a kitchen, however other places are just places. coldfusio

Alright Doomers, here's a challenge, find your way through this map. Maybe I'm only having trobule because its 2 AM, who knows. Anyway this one definitely deserves a spot in your "90's WADs" folder.

This is good fun, although it's so old that it has a textfile explaining the secrets. It's a castle level, but with enough detail and action to be fun more than a decade later. It's from an era when people made Doom levels as if they were little adventure games, and it's very nostalgic in that respect.

      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.

      It's a nice wad overall, nice map design, textures and monster placement, enjoyed playing on D-Touch (GZDoom1.8) with Dude4th weapon mod.  My only complain would be the secrets, they have very few to no clues about their position.  There was a problem on E3M5 on the secrets around the squared starting room with stairs, the wall closes and let me stuck inside, had to use idclip to get out from those secret rooms.

      I recently played through this continuously twice on UV. Overall I feel this is an expertly crafted WAD from start to finish. Beautiful scenery, great soundtrack, and intense gameplay. Maybe a little too intense sometimes, and with that it's probably not a WAD I'll recommend to newbies. If less experienced players absolutely have to try it, I suggest playing on the lower difficulty modes as the included readme suggests. Describing the later maps of this WAD as "brutal" on UV is an understatement to say the least.
