About This File

A short trip through hell, set on by a classic Doom story. Originally intended as just a Boom compatible level, I got a little carried away with it, especially the ending credits\scenes. It carries in at over 10 Mb because of the ambient sounds used... so turn off any music you have playing, turn up the volume on other music in ZDoom and enjoy! If you want to know your kill percentage, secrets found and playing time, wait until after the ending credits. This will run under GZDoom provided it supports ZDoom r538's features, but some lighting will look strange or too dark, no matter what setting.

This is a solid, fun set of five levels. Playing on UV I found the ammo was tight in spots and abundant in other places. These hell themed maps look great once you get off the base at the start of the set. Exl makes good use of the stock Doom textures along with a few custom textures. The additional ambient sounds adds a lot to the atmosphere (try wearing headphone with this one).. Eventually you end up in a battle with enough enemies to shingle hell and.... it was tough, but I survived to talk about it. In my opinion this wad is worth playing just to experience the first couple maps and the rest is good too.... there's some really cool looking areas to explore and Exl isn't cheap with the secret areas, many of which I didn't even find (I missed 10). So yeah, this one is fun, looks good, so go play the damned thing and enjoy yourself.

A very good wad without any doubt. However, that this wad has places where there are textures of red stone blocks when normal stone blocks could have been used makes the person who made this wad look as if he were trying to be edgy, and not in a good way. In addition, the fact that writings have been put on the walls of certain areas as a joke, in a way, ruins the tone that this wad possesses. Not to mention that stupid of putting mini-cyberdemons that was completely retarded, again, taking into account what this wad looks like, in general. To finish, everything else is fine but the rest of the things I mentioned before subtract enough points from this wad, and it's a shame. In the end, this wad receives a 6 out of 10.

While this may be a decent wad, it's not my type, I hoped for maps like MAP01 where it's a quick experience, but instead was left playing maps that mostly resemble rooms and hallways that go for a time too long. 2/5

Nice. Sidenote: The soundtrack is one of the best parts of doom. This is cool too, i was just struggeling to comprehend the the moron who acted like playing doom without music was still playing doom. ~BeyondNecroDome

The first base level made me think "wtf, this sucks" but once I got through the portal I stood in complete awe. Epic, although I slightly increased my r_visibility level to get rid of that overwhelming darkness. 5/5 Zalewa

Not at all bad... Looks great and has lots of atmosphere (10Mb to be precise :) It's a shame the link for the latest ZDoom doesn't work... although the latest GZDoom ( 1.0.24 ( http://grafzahl.drdt eam.org/ ) ) works fine. BTW: anyone who plays DOOM with the music on needs to be pimp-slapped. 4/5

A base that subverts into something more sinister (like sub-ep from Pablo Dictter) The background noise, lighting, some new effects and (surprisingly) doom textures add to a great hellish atmosphere. In my first run I missed perhaps the whole second level Think that was related with a megasphere secret. I didn't like the gameplay in that first run. In my second run I played the whole second level and that made a whole difference gameplaywise. Recommended 5/5 coldfusio.

This is an interesting variation on the glut of recent retro levelsets; it looks great, with an epic sense of scale, but at the same time the design is fairly simple and a little bit retro. It's a million miles from the old 1994/95 "castle" levels that are in the archive. The gameplay is pretty good too, nice and wandery, although not very hard. There are lots of cold, spooky, windy background noises that would be spookier if I wasn't playing this in the summer.

A rather nice WAD, with good creepy atmosphere at the beginning (unfortunately it loses it a bit later on) and rather unobtrusive scripting.

i'm agree with coldfusio, this map is very beautiful. A trip from phobos/deimos to hell, and in the warping dimension remembered me Chrono Trigger for some reason. 4/5 Daimon

It has scary good atmosphere. Got me puzzled what I have to do there in level 4. Also hard and let me without ammo for the cyberdemon in level 3 but probably because I kept killing the cacos without knowing what to do at first. 4/5 - Optimus

Just drag it on the zdoom.exe. You can also try the file parameter run: path to zdoom -file path to dop.pk3. The beginning is easy but the last parts are very hard.

      Great visuals, creative layouts with unorthodox and challenging gameplay, while still holding those 90s vibes. Although sometimes it can get stressful due to the high influx of monsters in massive areas while giving you no time to rest (edit: though, some will probably enjoy the execution bit more than me -- which is why I changed it from 4 to 5 stars), it's essential for every vanilla lover, and a good trip as well.

      One of the best wads I've ever played, has a great and memorable soundtrack while also having a nice and difficult (but satisfying) level design. To me a nice step up from the original and a way more balanced map pack overall.

      Highly recommended to people who want a nice and difficult wad to play.

      I generally like city maps on DOOM but this set of maps are one of worst I've ever played. Extremely confusing maps, obtuse progression and on top of that there's no enough ammo on UV to kill the monsters. Gave up on MAP 06. It's utter garbage really, you should avoid it.

      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!
