About This File

I signed up for the DAC. It died. My map didn't :P Basically I've gone for a silly sort of christmas theme and went for a few new twists. If you can stand ugly mapping, the innovation of the ski slope should be fun :P You have to play through the staged traps and challenges, putting up with a demon who thinks he's Santa Claus (you won't meet him, but he's the one sending the messages that start "Ho ho ho!", in order to collect the keys and leave this snowy hell. No difficulty settings, as it's quite easy anyway (IMO).

Solid: simple, yet exciting and really REALLY memorable! A gem among Christmas WADs.

Really good christmas map from an underrated mapper (just check out his CC3 map if you don't believe me). Probably the best christmas wad out there, even if it does rip graphics from an old, obscure one. 5/5

The cacodemon is uh.... Anyway, I really liked this. It should have more levels, but oh well. Very good and a good use of zdoom features. 5/5 -Moti

Christmas wads are few and far between, and this one does it up right.

This won me over as soon as I saw the demons with santa claus hats. The caco is a giant christmas tree bauble and the imps throw snowballs. It's hard to judge the level however because these sprites come from elsewhere; once you strip away the graphics it's an entertaining but not spectacular hub-based map with three distinct gameplay areas (there's an arena, which is fairly easy, a dungeon which is tricky, and a novel ski slope which is frustrating but clever).

Very good, but you can't use it with weapon mods because of a puzzle that requires a rocket launcher. Still, it's better than good. 5/5

      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.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
