About This File

The Imp is back and this time, all the episode start maps have joined in. E3M1 from the previous standalone release is in this wad, refreshed and bugfixed. These maps are not the best, but they are certainly not the worst ethier. :)

E1m1 doesn't like me a lot, but for the rest is really nice looking - 3.8 stars

Nice remake. I like the texture mix in e1m1, but I have found e1m4 almost the same as original. 4/5

Pretty impressive. Nice remakes, same layout and theme as the originals with a few fun and clever design liberties taken. The original E4M1 is such a piece of crap, it's hard to do anything nice with it at all. It's quite humbling to see a 15 yearold can detail better than most people ever will. 3.5/5

This is one of those retro mapsets that remixes the original levels; there must be a dozen E3M1s by now. Nonetheless this is pretty good. The maps are recognisable, the design is tasteful, they're fun to play, and E2M1 has a clever bit in the secret maze. E4M1 is a let-down though, because it's basically the same as the original. I missed about twenty monsters, because the red key trap doesn't work unless you shoot - but you've already killed everything.

      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.
