About This File

"No.... please. Not the Barrel! Anything but the Barrel.. No! Not the Barrel! Not the Barrellllllll!"

Welcome to Barrel - I hope it gives you nightmares. Certainly, if you have a machine slower than a 486 then you take your chances with this WAD as a few areas have quite complex detail.

I certainly had fun making this one (and playing it). You'll find a couple of references to Scream.Wad - so if you've played that, it might help. Then again it might not.

As usual, this *can* be done without cheating.

* Barrel2 is an updated version of the original WAD. I have changed a few small things and fixed a playability bug in "Hurt me plenty". I've also added a secret.

Any problems - email me.

I'm not impressed by any thing within this wad, except, of course, it's venerable age. /hth PS: use your saves - it is what they are for.

      Overall is nice, but I'm not much into small maps crowded with monsters, other than that, looks like a decent megawad

      Sorry, but can't give more stars to this megawad, it gets really tiresome to start like 6 times the same map with a different door each time and the and the innecesary overstuff of ammo and guns just kill the fun of Doom being about managing your resources.  It can be some kind of fun opening a terminal in GZDoom and setting SV_fastWeapons to 2

      Played on UV, continuous, GLBoom+   This is a very absorbing and well put together Episode 2 replacement. The difficulty is cranked up incrementally throughout, and towards the end becomes seriously challenging, though always fair. Map 7 is particularly memorable, with its 500 monsters and a big surprise in the blue key room, as is the hellish descending escalator in Map 9. The final level is absolute mayhem, with 9 Cyberdemons and a supporting cast of 300+ sidekicks, but with a properly worked out strategy it's beatable: you need to make good use of infighting, plus it helps to be on the lookout for a secret area that isn't all that secret....   Not sure that any game ever merits an absolute 5 star rating, which implies that no improvement is possible, but this is certainly approaching 95/100 territory.   Definitely looking forward to checking out ConC.E.R.Ned by the same author.

      Um lol the TITLEPIC, also this wad lets you shoot crates to lower them and get ammo, and I like how the Minecarts puzzle was recreated using only Pain Elementals, however I have to say this isn't really well done, the puzzles are weird and you're expected to hug, shoot and press walls and some weird "Dormant" monsters, I applaud the effort that went into recreating the layout of the level, could use some 3D Floors and some Slopes though, but the visuals aren't all that great and the puzzles are somewhat different so if you haven't played the original level this will confuse you even more than their Decay counterparts, partly due to lack of hints and the weird and confusing visuals (I keep using the word confusing but there's really no better way to describe it).   1 star for the layout Faithfulness (barely), 1 star for naked Rosenberg.

      Fun map, with some decent design. I don't get the last teleport though, where the player can use the teleport to teleport to exactly the same place.
