About This File

These are two levels, that are really fun to play with. [Note by the uploader: I recommend to play THENEST1.WAD and THENEST.WAD next to each other as an episode.]

This is, from where they come from: These are WADs, that have been published on a BBS. In the package THENST.ZIP came the two WADs THENEST1.WAD (E1M1), timestamp: 10/04/94 MM/DD/YY and THENEST2.WAD (E1M2), that has timestamp 10/06/94 THENST.ZIP has the BBS file description: The first two maps of the episode The Nest, for DOOM.

There was also another version of THENEST1.WAD on that BBS as THENEST.WAD (E1M1) with the timestamp 09/25/94 in the zip THENEST2.ZIP. That zip has the BBS file description: Final version of the DOOM PWAD file TheNest.

I include that version, because i'm a completist. Decide on your own, what's the unknown authors intention.

The BBS file description has been discovered here: http://cd.textfiles.com/svgames9501/CDR17/FILES.BBS ... and the zips here: http://cd.textfiles.com/svgames9501/CDR17/THENEST2.ZIP http://cd.textfiles.com/svgames9501/CDR17/THENST.ZIP

Three levels from September 1994. They are typical of their time. Thenest.wad is a medieval-style map. It looks like a set of random etch-a-sketch doodles, although the gameplay is almost okay because it's fast-moving. In the end I got stuck and had no desire to continue playing. Thenest1.wad is the same again, with more monsters. Thenest2 is a mossy dungeon maze, symmetrical; it has lots of mostly weak monsters, but it's boring as peas (the vegetable).

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.

      Starts with all monsters with their backs to you, and you might as well leave it that way and just listen to the music. One big rectangular room with no finish switch. They couldn't even make the rectangle properly - freehand I guess. Kill the monsters if you want, it's easy.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.
