About This File

A megawad which was 95% finished two years ago. Never got around to adding the final touches until now. The levels are relatively small, hence the name. Other than that, there's no link between them. Some are horrible, some are good. I had planned to add customized level names, rearrange the soundtracks and some other tidbits but have never done so.

A set of maps, carefully tuned for pistol starts, pretty hard/challenging. The maps are rather small and have exactly one secret. There is no stylistic consistency; there are a few bases and castles, caves, hellish maps and so on, everything totally mixed up. I can assume the earlier maps have their slots because they are easier and the later maps - harder. MAP26 is probably the most difficult one. mlm12 reminds me a bit of Going Down, as the levels are small, packed with enemies, and one different from the other. But mind, they are less polished than GD. Some maps have a pretty high 2000's level of detail (the ending corridor from MAP09), some others are much more basic looking (MAP02). IMO they are rather good looking (above average).

 

Bugs/problems: The mapper leaves all the doortracks without "lower unpegged" flag, so they move with the door, I'm sure he knew how to prevent it but he preferred the doors to behave this way. What is more problematic for me: unreliable W1 monster teleports, places where you can get stuck and decorations impeding player's movement, no Boom actions but some maps require -complevel 9 due to traps not working with limit-removing compatibility.

 

Favourite maps: 03,08,17,24,25,26. I would definitely recommend giving it a try: the maps are so different everyone will surely find something that appeal to them.

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

While the author has managed to include some decent maps, this mapset overall gives me the impression that little thought was put into the design and thing placements. Some maps even make heavy use of cut+paste. Certainly not deserving of the praise I'm seeing here.

4/5 Pretty darn good. Just got through a whole playtest of this in coop mode online. Seems all the levels are coop compatible. Pretty fun and the challenge only gets more and more crazy as the maps progress.

Great work! It was fun to play through it. The only bad thing left to say is that the author forgot to "Lower Unpegged" the doortracks, and some textures are misaligned. That violates the good atmossphere a bit. Otherwise I can recommend this .wad to every DooMer who enjoys fast and action-packed levels 4/5!

very nice HR-style megawad with nice short levels. some are insane in combat. my only complaint would be damaging floors especially on MAP26.

As the author says himself, qualify varies a lot during the megawad. The first few maps are easy and cramped, but it gets better, some of the later maps being rather challenging despite a low monster count. Some maps pull off their theme surprinsingly well with low detail (especially map17). As for bugs, there's some minor HoMs here and there, and none of the doortraks seems to be unpegged. Definitely worth a play. 4/5

The later levels are extremely furious in terms of fights, and therefore only appear to an audience interested in super-hard fights. The earlier maps or solid, small levels, with a fair challenge, worth a play for just about anyone I think.

Every map in here is extremely small and action packed. The quality varies, and so does the gameplay. The latter maps do provide huge fights (lol map22), but I do like this! Worth a play. 5/5 - Moti

I have played it with a friend in co-op ... one word: awesome! it deserves a five, however I'm giving it a four and a half because there are some details left, like you mentioned in the description, that need to be taken care of ...

Really fun... Very much like an old school megawad -lack of detail (yet, usually good looking levels) and plenty of action. Definitely worth your time.

      the tenth week of dwspd has the theme of "flooded city" which is a nice echo back to the very first of the dwspds which was "lava city". here we have seven maps, all deal with flooded areas, and the quality of these maps is increasing as you go along. first map is definitely not city, but does show the fake floor trick, then you climb just one building to the top. second map also isn't a city but more of a temple that looks strange (plus having to rocket barons in tight halls). third map, uh, there's not much to this one but at least it did what it could thematically. fourth map brings all the carnage underwater while allowing for an optional cyberdemon fight. fifth tries but doesn't really have that city vibe, yet at least had some interesting things to it. the best two maps are MAP06 (in theme it's the best) and MAP07 (a concoction of buildings strewn over the nukage, having to go across each one until you get a radsuit so you can tackle the center). well there's more maps, and it feels a lot more fun than some of the previous ones.

      Pretty meh mapset, this wad crashes on vanilla doom 2 since a ceiling texture is acting funny in MAP01, in boom 2.02 it shows perfectly. Best of the bunch is MAP04, but overall, meh mapset with some weirdness.

      for the ninth installment of dwspd, the theme was to "try and rebuild E1M1 without looking at the original". wow, THAT is a low map turnout, at a measly two. guess it was a lot more difficult than some would have bothered with. but let's see what we got. the first is rather accurate as far as actual layout, though texturing and monster placement is assuredly different. but this one has problems, namely one of the secrets is one-time only as well as an exit switch that doesn't work. it's odd for me to say the real winner was actually the second of the two, despite it looking less accurate, it was much more fun, a Go 2 It mini-version of Hangar with a few hordes of monsters done proto-slaughter style.

      for the eighth installation of dwspd, the theme was to "build a warehouse inside a castle". or is it to build a castle and then a warehouse inside it? who knows. anyways, this is easily the weakest dwspd thus far, with a very low map turnout of only 6 maps, and none of them are actually all that well done theme-wise. sure, the combat is up there, but let's see. MAP01 and MAP06 don't have anything that really pertains to warehouse per se. MAP02 is incredibly mediocre overall and it's possible to prevent yourself from ever leaving due to the lift switch being one-time only. MAP03 seems nice with the crates in places but it doesn't seem finishable due to one lift never rising to the red key AND an impassable linedef in front of the exit. MAP04 and MAP05 are the most interesting, though each has a share of problems with MAP04 for some reason having invisible crates while MAP05 tries for a siege scenario, starting in the warehouse and giving all the supplies, but just try killing everything out there when you can't head back up once you fall down. yes, I'm fully aware that these maps don't get bug-tested or play-tested before release, but it's always best to leave the best possible impression.

      for the seventh iteration of dwspd, the theme was to "build a Doom 1 level in Episode 1 style". this theme contrasts quite well with the previous theme of building a final level of Doom 2 in dwspd006, but the familiarity of Episode 1 style levels in E1Mx is bound to put a damper on the overall score of this one. you'll notice that Fredrik isn't here this time around, so there's not much to be wowed by his great speedmaps. the rest of the maps are just speedmap juice, they are usually mediocre and have a few bugs, some are more blatant than others (the first map you can just skip everything since Blackterror forgot to tag the exit door as a key door). also you'll need to warp to E1M9, since E1M3 does not go to the secret map. unlike the others that have generally mixed quality in many different mapslots, the levels actually seem to get better the more you go through. the first few maps are shit and are really small in size, but the layouts and monster count increases and things get more fun as you go along.
