About This File

The pyramid is a metaphor that represents the daily problems of our life. Help Gamarra to climb it. Two tips for you: a bfg is in a secret area nearby the start and a secret teleport leads you on the top of the pyramid.

This can only be fun for speedrunners, proving how easily "the daily problems of our life" according to Giulio Galassi can be overcome. 1/5

This approaches NUTS.wad territory; it's a multi-tiered pyramid with over 2,500 monsters arranged in an orderly fashion on the pyramid and in some side rooms. Once the monsters wake up, the frame rate plummets. There's a secret teleport that takes you to the top of the pyramid. If Mr Galassi makes another 23 levels he will have enough for a megawad. At his current rate we will be downloading his megawad sometime towards the end of 2007.

Because of the critics, I don't care to download it. But I give 5 points for the great title "Pyramid of problems".

Is textured as badly as a 1994 level, and mostly made like an early crude DEU job. Number of monsters is almost NUTS.WAD-like, and the fact that it's a Doom 1 map doesn't help variety either. However, there is some grandiosity in the sheer scale of the pyramid...the "encouraging" texts reminded me of Christian videogames for some reason...doh, 2/5 stars.

Strangely fun... it'scool to see millions of fireballs in the 'bove or toturn on fastweapons, infinite ammo and watch as cacodemons drop from the heavens like flies. Can't wait for the last part :) It was truly spetacular and grand.

I have FTP Voyager set to download and sync the entire IDGAMES archive. First it does newstuff and the second I saw a name started with g and ending with 9, i smashed my desk. You are a fuckwad. Are you on crack and is your friend blowing you when you are making these maps? I could pull a better wad out of my ass you shit

The funny thing about these is that the author is actually getting better. Of course, at this rate, we'll have to wait until Gamarra XCVII until one of them will be *good*, but I thought it was interesting to observe it nonetheless.

Go forth and kick rear, Ghoulio, my lasagna munching friend(after all the whining about ´94 wads it was only a question of time until someone made them on purpose) 5/5

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
