About This File

A set of 3 story-driven maps for Doom2. My sincere apologies for this set being unfinished, but circumstances have prevented me from having time to finish this in the near future. Map01 is actually a remake of a previous map I made, Little Tiny Map, and the second and third are new. This is actually designed to be a series of linear, but interesting close encounter battles to make the player think on his feet. The story is self contained in intermisson screens, but to set it up, this is kind of a "prequel" to the Doom storyline, following the initial accident at UAC. Only tested successfully in ZDoom, but the should run in any port that supports - -Limit removal of visplanes, thing limits, etc. -Textures as flats, and vice versa. -Jumping and crouching is a must.

Thanks for playing, and I hope you enjoy.

A pretty good map, the layout was easy to move around in, nice ammo and health balance. I noticed the glitch in map 07 myself and I had to noclip to get to the exit. Not even a rjump would make it there. Not bad! 4/5.-Candle M

I just realized that somehow I must have accidentally changed the floor height for the Map 07 stairs to the exit, making the exit unreachable without Noclip. Big mistake on my part, sorry about that. If you want to see the end intermission screen, just noclip to the top and open the door. Obviously you guys can probably tell I'm not real experienced, so I'd appreciate any feedback you might have. Thx.

I did like it. It didn't have too many frills, but it was a lot of good action. Good texture placement I think. Definitely I hope you can finish because you truly have a good thing going here. 4/5.

And then the amoral schoolteacher said overpopulated and everyone listened to him, for who would disagree with his authority.. Woops, I got lost in the moment. I remember playing the first map and I'm sure I said it was too cramped. I thought the following maps relative to other work were easy and bland, but they had charm. I liked the RL room the most. I didnt get hit by the archnatrons; I think that should summarize how I feel about the maps. Also, the choice to go linear is often a choice not to go real

This was a fun wad. Nothing special and feels far more like one map than three (the first and last maps are real short and the middle one far from long), but good enjoyable 15-min kill.

      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.

      Starts with all monsters with their backs to you, and you might as well leave it that way and just listen to the music. One big rectangular room with no finish switch. They couldn't even make the rectangle properly - freehand I guess. Kill the monsters if you want, it's easy.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.
