About This File

The quest for the BFG continues.... into a bright and colorful virtual world, where even ordinary laws of physics may be bent a little at times. Several textures were used from hacx, but due to the limited amount of virtual reality textures Hacx had to offer, I ended up making many of my own (either by creating color variations of textures in hacx, or simply making new textures from scratch.) The story is in game, in the form of skippable cutscenes (except the last one on level three, which is the player's choice to simply quit the game or not by then, since the stats are already shown beforehand.) Therefore, I am not going to monologue in this text file :P. The plot is semi-humorous, since I don't think I could make a completely serious plot. The wad is technically three maps, but it plays as one. Oh yes, I almost forgot to mention this wad can be very difficult.

storyline stuff good, but the gameplay rapes itself 10x over. Too many missing textures. WTF. Just quit it w/ the noob project. It keeps getting worser and worser. NP4 is hard enough to grant itself the very same score. ~0/5

Doesn't work in latest GZDoom: you get stuck after the first cutscene. 0/5. Sorry, but really. - ZZ

Great Stuff. I love it when people do more experimental things like the computer level.

This is really legendary. If you play this, you will never forget about it. Partial, there is not enough ammo (or I didn't find enough). Unfortunately the jumping parts ruined the playability. However 5/5

Wow, this is a first timer. A very, perhaps too colorful map, based as an inside of a computer. Lol, I loved it. Alot. It runs a little slow with GZDoom at some part, but I could care less. Looking forward for the sequel. 5/5 -Moti

This is reminiscent of 8BITCTF, in the sense that it takes place in a series of brightly-coloured TRON-style environments. It looks wonderful, and it clearly took a lot of time to make; but I hated it, because of the platform elements. You have to do a lot of jumping, and if you miss - which is easy to do - you fall off and die stone dead. If the level had ramps instead of little steps it would be much better.

As of ZDoom r4208 or GZDoom r1549, the broken teleport in this map works once again.

Even though it is obvious that a good amount of effort went into the creation of this map, its understandable why some wouldn't like it. You would have to be good at jumping gaps while dodging enemy fire. I suppose the only reason I could do it well is because I play Zdaemon rocket jump maps often. As for the theme, it is definitely not like most doom maps. I found the colorful theme appealing, but some may not like it since it isn't the usual grungy tech/hellish doom map. Minus 1 star for gameplay. 4/5

What the fuck?! I can't even get past the computer-virus cutscene. I'm just stuck on that square tile and I can't even fucking move out of there, nothing happends! WTF?! 0/5 for failure to fix bugs.

Excellent work here. This is exactly how I would envision a computerized world to look. The story was fun as well. 5 stars for this. Well done and keep up the good work.

I liked both the map and the storyline. They are pretty unique to be honest, and they were quite entertaining. Nevertheless, I have to admit that some areas of the digital world were much too difficult, and some a little troublesome / frustrating. Also, the author may want to revise the wad and re-launch a patched version: you no longer teleport the digital world in newer (G)Zdoom versions.

Did you... did you get your friends to five-star this? This clumsy, hop-skotch, giant eye-raper doesn't deserve five stars anyway, but that's just incredibly lame. -Remiel

I love the vibrant colored stage, and its complexity makes it challenging and fun, without being too easy. Great job executing the whole skybox thing for the virtual effect, and the utilization of cinematics. 5/5 -Lin a.k.a. Ru-Hisakata-Yume

      I guess this was meant to be a serious wad, just using a trick to make the C-Demon hard to see. I don't think it was a deliberate troll of the style that caught on later, eg Sand Chain and the Terry wads. IMHO it nowhere near holds the record for "worst wad ever" (even if it did once) so it is now "over-rated" in that respect. I was a bit disappointed, I was expecting worse LoL.

      Doomers these days have varying levels of patience. I know I have some of the worst when it comes to quickly finishing areas and moving on, which is why I prefer shorter levels most of the time. this particular map, a Maximum Doom map by the way, is one that completely tested my patience.   this is 8 levels long, from E1M1 to E1M8, and is sort of a proto-slaughtermap episode replacement. every map here has at least 200 monsters, and the layouts of each say that they are compact in size. so the action would be pretty good and fun right?   WRONG   while it's fun to kill all these enemies, this is honestly horribly balanced. on the first level, you only really get a shotgun and a chaingun, and it took me a while to get just one armor too. is that the worst part? I can actually enjoy the challenge of such a gameplay scenario so no. what's problematic about each and every level in this wad is that when you're not killing enemies, you're just sort of fucking around. in other words, you're switch hunting. but this is the worst kind due to lifts that have zero indications that they are lifts, as well as switches that have zero indication of what they did. not to mention some walls are triggers, when they really don't have any indication that they really do anything. oh yes, and mandatory secrets and backtracking. I would like the combat more if it gave more weapons too, not one plasma gun or BFG in sight, and all that backtracking just...fucking...headdesk. there's no reliable way to even speedrun this, to the point where I wonder if the author ever realized that other's would tire the fuck out over it. "these are the easy ones" this has all the hallmarks of a bad Maximum Doom map.   it's amazing how varied my Maximum Doom experience is so far. there are some really fun maps, mediocre but quick maps, and some long and nasty ones. I'm honestly trying to avoid reviewing any maps from there but i'll make an exception for this particular one since it's just unbelievably bad.

      Pointless crap.  A small yard, empty except for a futuristic shotgun. No monsters and no exit. See my screenshot and you've seen it all.

      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.
