About This File

- Varied style, but all floating in sideral space. - The map has only platforms and columns, so don't fall. There are also some wide areas. - A lot of different textures: hellish, futurist... A little of all. - A Dehacked patch. I recommend you use it, makes the game innovative and unreal. - Some new monsters: * ZOMBIE MARINE: A brown Doom marine. * ROCKET GUY: A zombie soldier with a bazooka, can beat you with only one shot. * ZOMBIE RAILGUNNER: A soldier with a laser weapon. Be careful. * ZOMBIE BFG: Hmm, doesn't need comments... Feel the pain of a BFG 9000's blast. * STEALTH FIGHTER: Transparent sodier/cyborg. - These monsters come, as usual, from ftp://archives.3dgamers.com/pub/idgames/combos (monsters.zip) - Besides the new monsters, I modified some of the original Doom enemies: * Fast imps, attack with the manucubus' fire. * Transparent Lost Souls. * The cacodemons' fireballs are invisible. * The Cyberdemon's rockets (and yours) are destructible. * Increased attack power for arachnotrons. * Etc, etc... - New sounds: * Taking a powerup, item or weapon. * Firing the pistol, shotgun, chaingun or plasma rifle. * Some monster's attacks. * Opening and closing doors. * Destroying Lost Souls.

It was an average map, the platform jumping was a bit tedious, but over all, average. 3/5.-Candle M

Interesting concept, decent execution. Not a "great" map, but unique and worth checking out.

Cool idea. Frustrating to play...it's just not Doom. It's like hopping rocks in an "all lava level" with no rad suit and nowhere to run. Loved the rocket launcher guy. 3/5

I don't the who the second guy is kidding. The gameplay was terrible, like the first guy said. Interesting map, though.

The gameplay is awesome. Just because the person above me has no coordination does not make it bad. I really enJoyed it.

This is June 2006. It's visually interesting - a series of platforms hanging in space - and it plays like an old 8-bit platform game, although you don't have to jump. Whether you like it or not depends on your tolerance for platform games (thankfully "space" doesn't kill you instantly). It's fun but frustrating, and it often turns into one of those memorisation-fests where you have to know which trap is coming up next. Nicely excuted, though.

      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.
