About This File

This pwad replaces episode #2 with 9 new levels. The level layouts and difficulty of these levels are compareable to DOOM's 'INFERNO'.

This pwad include following nine brandnew missions:

1.) Entrance 2.) Catacombs 3.) Lab of Horror 4.) Outcasted Building 5.) Bloodletting 6.) Weird Ruins 7.) Walk thru Hell 8.) Way out Sec.) Mysterious Halls

Every single mission was designed to be great for single player games. But I know, very many of you love deathmatch showdowns. So I desided to add deathmatch starts and additional weapons. None of this nine missions is huge, all missions can be finished within 15 minutes, provided you do not fool around.

One of the best old school episodes I've played. I've had this on my PC as "bas_evil.wad" long ago. Neat job, e2m3 and e2m4 my favorites.

This felt like an un-released episode. Awesome job. Last level sort of sucked though.

Good levels, Id-quality in appearance with challenging gameplay. Recommended.

Since you changed episode and level names, I'll give it a 3 rather than a 2. The quality is mediocre, but if you were to give permission to use your levels as a base for other levels (like with kill1), it would be a 5

It's a decent episode overall. BTW this appears to be duplicated as phell.zip (id=15915). The only thing changed that I can see is the name of the wad in the text file, but not in-game. I didn't notice any changes to the wad other than renaming it, but maybe I'm missing something. Just wanted to inform of a potential duplicate (however it's not stolen; the author in the .txt is still Ralf, thankfully).

Best classic oldschool doom1 episode wad since a long time! There are some interesting trap and other ideas here and a lot of classic action and simplistic yet nice architecture (a lot of inspirations from original levels, nicely mixed too) 5/5 - Optimus

Very solid pack! The architecture isn't as great as it could have been for a pack made in 2009, but it makes up for this in the game play department. For once, I can tell the author did a lot of playtesting. The difficulty was very balanced, with ammo placement equalized throughout each level. There were some very fun battles, although the last level was kind of disappointing as someone else had mentioned. E1M6 and E1m7 were great. 4/5

^Yeah it's quite a solid episode. But E1M6 and E1M7 aren't replaced! If you're referring to the original maps then yes those maps are great but so is all of KDitD (the best original Doom episode, IMO) and we've played them thousands of times before so why mention it here especially when there is still a shareware file in these archives? Anyways rating, 4/5 for the episode. It also wasn't made in 2009, though. id=12536 (from 2004) is absolutely identical to this, as far as I can tell.

This wad file is dated 1998? Didn't expect that while examining things especially this is totally good quality stuff if it's really from that timeframe. It was name-changed to Planet Hell at some point in 2009 (should have been a note to remove this, since archives don't accept duplicates) but I can't find a single map change.

Fairly good, but lacks originality. The levels are peppered with "tributes" or "rip-offs" of original id levels. The gameplay is good in the first few levels, but then gets worse, especially in the final level, which was a letdown. 3 stars.

      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.
