About This File

This wad replaces episode1 of the ultimate doom. And just for it to be clear: These are very oldscoolish wads with decent 1994 detail. They have nothing new in terms of gameplay. And The hole episode ONLY uses 4 monsters ruling out the barons in the last level. If you don't like it, whine about it.

Needs sprucing up. Texture alignment, more secrets, etc. This, indeed, reminds me of 1994. It reminds me of the CDs that were released around the time with 1000's of mediocre (or worse) levels on it, but with only a few good ones.

OK... h_g obviously got something right when making this episode replacement. It's a bit plain and unpolished visually, but at least it's playable. I must say I didn't expect that much out of him, but perhaps I was too biased. Well, I think a 3/5 is the perfect rating, and I hope his future releases only get better. -Maes

Not bad. It has a real 1994 feel; the levels look hand-drawn. I am unconvinced that this is deliberate, but the gameplay moves quickly, the levels take very little time to finish, and it never gets boring. E1M5 is very reminiscent of original E1M5. There's no E1M9 replacement. E1M8 has a curious ending; it's either a crap final battle, or a botched "you are supposed to die" thing. Little dutch cap is a minimum effort, police man mother.

The real strength of this episode is the Gameplay. The level design could be better and more realistic but the wad does a good job recreating 1994. 3 Stars -PC

Yes, nice oldschool fun with unpolished design. Wrong texture alignment hurts me, so fix this in your next levels as much as you can, but it was nice for a start. 3/5 - Optimus

It does feel somewhat like something from 1994. There were some problems, though. Mainly that the fights are generally predictable and easy, and that there are texture issues, perhaps because it was not properly tested with Doom, Chocolate Doom, or Doom95. [2/5] ~Chain Mail (08/2007)

As Optimus said, oldschool and unpolished, pretty much no thought given to texture alignment. These maps start out okay with some nice original fights. The later half of the episode however falls into the trap of using re-implementations of original mapping ideas, and it's too goddamn dark. I'd have rathered 4 good maps than forcing out an extra 4 just to make an episode. 2/5

Hey, this wasn't bad at all! It felt like a good 1994 release, and the whole thing is quick (you can make it through in like 20 minutes) and not frustrating. A touch underrated IMO. 3.5/5

VERY 1994-ish, in a good way. nice, quick and simple gameplay. if you actually played wads in '94 then you'd know that if this were released back then it would have been considered very good despite the few classics that remain from those times...even if the effort seems to ramp down after the first few maps and there is just a bit too much similarity between it and obvious ID maps. still, ***

Great 1994 retro feel, even if the maps are a bit short - if you were a fan back in the day you will enjoy this - if you demand 10,000 sectors in every map you won't - oh, and GZSoom seems to fix the texture alignment issues

went by to fast for me, but lots of action ftw!. E1M4 was a treat, liked the level design a lot just wish the maps were a lot bigger :) 4/5 for the smallish levels. thx for the EP1 looking forward to your new stuff. magor

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

      A very decent challenge. Took me about half a dozen attempts to crack it on UV. The wad is from 2015, but could just as well have been from around 1997. Solid, traditional classic Dooming.

      The visual level design here is mostly similar to Plutonia and its unofficial sequels PL2 and PRCP. But it is by no means a gameplay part, since for example the gameplay in the first maps revolves around ammo shortage with not so much opposition (although it was tight in places, I admit), while the latter maps are somewhat reminiscent of slaughterwads with a bunch of ammunition and opponents.   The same applies to the size of the maps - the first ones can be completed in 6-7 minutes, while the last ones takes 15-20 minutes to complete. Although this could be explained by a kind of progress, despite the fact that even MAP12 (the first map in wad) is not a walk in the park.   I am not opposed to forced pistol-start (maybe even for), but usually if the levels should be completed in this way, they should be better balanced, as the ability to store things from previous levels is discarded.
      And again, I repeat as previous speakers - perhaps some arch-viles were even superfluous. This is especially noticeable when you go through the same room several times.

      Mostly enjoyable set in vein of "Plutonia but harder" and with larger fights. Visuals are often minimalistic, with combat being the focus of making the maps interesting. Expect plenty of Viles to resurrect what you kill and forced pistol starts on every map. 3/5

      Pretty nice map, some parts are been a little rushed out like the columns texture alignment, but overall the structure and the layout is pretty cool!
