About This File

Two levels for any limit removing port.

The idea for this PWAD came from iddqd.ru. The main concept is: you should create a level using only two IWAD textures and two IWAD flats. Thanks Shadowman for inspiration.

PrBoom-Plus 2.5.0.1+ is strongly recommended, because this level has COLORMAP replacement which is not supported by (G)Zdoom.

WARNING: You should not use glboom at all and glboom-plus before 2.5.0.1 with this PWAD to avoid HOMs.

MIDIes: Title/Interpic: alien.mod from Terminal Velocity. (converted to MIDI by hand) Map01: Terminator 1-2. Map02: corner.mod from Terminal Velocity. (converted to MIDI by hand) Sounds: Power Slave, Doom3. Sprites: Power Slave, d2moda.wad.

Dehacked patch, in-wad demos and PWAD composing: Andrey "entryway" Budko.

Not my favorite Eternal release, but worth 5 stars. Don't miss it!

5/5 just because map01 was so realistic (i was scared at first), and for doing so much with 2x2

I really enjoyed the "Doom 3" feel that the first level had (not just the sprites; the overall atmosphere), and the area where the player has to shoot the "voodoo doll" through the wall to grab the invulnerability was brilliant. Also, the final boss fight was very well-executed; plenty of ammo and room for evasion. 5/5

Once again, a very clever, very well done wad. 2 maps this time, both with a distinct Doom 3 atmosphere (more prominent in the first map). Only issue with the map set was that I didn't know where I was going right at the end of the MAP01. Otherwise another 5* performance. -Phobus

Excellent. Eternal has done more with just 2 textures and 2 flats than most mappers can with the whole set. Great atmosphere, great mapping tricks and great fun. I have yet to see another level use ZZZFACE properly :P

Clever use of the 2x2 texture rule, otherwise it's boring and kinda repetitive. Meh. 2/5

These levels look nice even if you forget about 2x2 rule

Two levels are dated January 2009. They have a texture scheme that makes them look ten years older, but they're good fun. Map01 is a spaceship with lots of fighting in gloomy corridors. It's atmospheric, but needed polish, with samey-looking rooms and some minor bugs. The finale is great fun. Map02 takes less time to finish; it's a starbase that reminded me of id=9597. The final battle has a good bit whereby the boss wipes out a crowd of revenants.

Fun, spooky levels, and I really like the updates to the chaingun and the rocket launcher. They look rad. The single shot shotgun looks cool too, but who ever uses that badboy once you get the double barrel? Kind of a waste to change a shotgun you don't use, and leave the other alone.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.

      Absolutely ludicrous, Now I need a new keyboard. Technically as bad as a wad can be, surely deliberate. I like to check out low-rated wads, so it's a pity that some clowns gave this  (and other bad ones) 5 stars, because averaged with correct low scores they end up with a middling rating and can be missed.
