About This File

I always liked the original "Batteries Not Included," not just for its concept (energy weapons only) but also for the unique designs that I had come up with for the weapons. That being said, I also had lots of glaring issues that needed to be corrected. I originally intended to port the mod to ZDoom and correct those issues, but since ZDoom currently (as of this writing, I've been disconnected for a week) lacks custom pain states, it's difficult to port. So instead, I made a sequel. New weapons, expansions on old weapons, new ideas, and graphics that don't suck.

OMG! No shotgun?! I NEED my shotgun! Give me my goddamn shotgun NOW! This type of thing is not my cup-of-tea but it all seems to function correctly. 3/5 -jb

Minus a star for using the word "I" too many times in the readme. Also, this is yet another weapons mod whereby the author has taken lots of graphics from elsewhere, which were in turn taken from somewhere else, and has tarted up the logic a little bit. It consistently has the old problem whereby the weapons don't point at the centre of the screen, or even in the same place. Graphic style varies wildly. I suspect the author spent more time writing his readme than making the wad.

Weasel did you HAVE to release everything at the same time?

This is probably my favorite of Weasel's "old" mods. The innovation and execution are both there. Who cares if there's no "shotgun," there's a freakin' plasma scattergun there instead! This is still gold.

      Creative, fun, entertaining and challenging levels, very cleverly hidden secrets, some butt-kicking ambushes and traps. Ammo balance is pretty tight in some maps with pistol start, but everything is possible. A must-play WAD.

      A very neat 1996 map that i kinda remember to have played already long ago, or at least something with a similar start, a really good interconnected layout (even if i was roaming around asking where to go, especially after taking the blue key and trying to leave the caves section), good texturing, hard monster placement (the easiest monsters are the shotgunners), really generous with health placement and some strategic megaspheres here and there, too bad it is too stingy with ammo, leaving me battling chaingunners with only a chainsaw sometimes... but overall, very good!

      IT JUST WORKS! Ok, with that stupid jojoke out of the way, we can start talking about this map:   It's a nice map from 1995 with some interesting room shapes (especially the one beyond the blue skull key door), the difficult and map flow is pretty easy and straightforward to navigate, don't fell discouraged by the large amount of enemies (it contains 120 monsters in total)! They're just cannon fodder for the majority of the map, expect for the final part with a arch-vile / cyberdemon combo near the exit, overall it could be easily beaten in 10 minutes or even less if you are a talented player... Enjoyable.

      Pretty 90s-ish, basic looking map sets into a tech / hell fortress of sorts, really large map that i've finished in 30 minutes, but luckily the map uses not really hard monsters to confront, making this pretty easy to finish, but again, is a long, LONG map with the most tedious parts are the mazes and that long backtracking stairs... Pretty meh   Also this map crashes on Doom 2 exe (DosBox) when you save the game, so i played it with a limit-removing dos port (doom 2 plus) without any trouble, so if you want to play this you had to use a limit removing port.

      Nice mini episode, reminds me of some sort of amateurish Plutonia Experiment sometimes. Pretty enjoyable!
