About This File

Since this was my first level, it contains a bit of everything. Traps, a few constructions, I came up with and experiments with light levels and effects. Thus, it is quite linear and therefore probably not very suited for deathmatch. But I haven't tried so far... Well, I don't like the level anymore, after playing it over and over again, so it is time to release it. Hope you enjoy it!

This is a fairly good wad. I agree the earlier parts are weak; they’re bland, narrow and corridors-y, but they’re brief and once you reach the blue key it starts to pick up. The level is a pair of tech/stone buildings facing across a bridged moat. Height variation is used well and makes the secrets more interesting. There's plenty of low-level monsters and a couple of neat traps. Excluding a short marbface staircase it looks ok too, & the new textures aren’t too shabby. Better than average for early 95

Cool wad. Nice new textures, interesting designs, clever secrets and good use of moving floors.

The readme looks like a gravestone inscription, but the level is pretty good. It starts off poorly, although there are some nice traps, but then turns into a castle/techbase level (with a moat). The second part is fun, especially for late 1994, with some clever secrets and some nice design (the "reactor core" section was decent). It isn't very big though, but there are lots of monsters and close-in fighting.

      Umm... this isnt Doom 64? Or even remotely related to it?   In addition, its a shitty wad. You are expected to fight 2 arch-viles with a pistol, and then a cyberdemon witha  chaingun in an enclosed space.

      Should have been called "Doom 64 for Boom".   I really wanted to like this more. I mean, I do like it but I feel like the gripes I have regarding it just bring my overall rating for it down too much.   It was interesting to see how, at first, the authors recreated the Doom 64 levels in Doom 2 with just vanilla assets. You can still see some of that in the Boom levels like how revenants and arch-viles are used in place of where traps where. That was an interesting touch and I liked that.   As I got further into it though and more of the Boom tricks were used my thoughts wandered from "hey this is a nice vanilla interpretation" to "man I could be playing Doom 64 EX or Doom 64 Retribution". I really wish they would have stuck with vanilla constraints for this reinterpretation. I would have liked to see how they would have handed nightmare monster placement (would a nightmare imp be worth two imps or three, for example). I feel like using Boom and DeHacked cheapened the experience, like they were trying to replicate Doom 64 as close as possible rather than doing a vanilla Doom (2) interpretation.   Additionally, map 30 can fuck right the hell off with that puzzle bullshit.   Anyway, if you don't mind any of the complaints I made, you'll likely have fun with this. I got some fun out of this as well but to me it feels like it's trying to be exactly like Doom 64 rather than simply a vanilla Doom 2 interpretation of Doom 64. In trying to be exactly like Doom 64, it just makes me want to play that more than this.

      Pretty good. The combat was fun and design wasn't bad at all.

      Despite its age, nice details and well designed. Way how blue key is hidden is really clever. But map is dark and cramped. Enemies are only imps and hitscanners.
