About This File

Utilizing Jump or Crouch will break this level.

Single level for The Ultimate DOOM, E4M1. While this WAD requires ZDoom to run, all effects are created using BOOM-compatible actions.

I have included new monsters on the Ultraviolence setting. I downloaded the new monsters from realm667.com, and have tweaked most to various degrees. My thanks to their creators.

For most of this WAD I stuck to the standard textures, but for one section I decided to throw in a few new ones I created. They are all edits of existing DOOM textures.

I have quarantined off an area of the WAD for deathmatch, if you are so inclined.

Coop not implemented, due to various tricks that wouldn't work in coop.

Story

After the epic horrors of DOOM and The Beginning of the End parts I and II you are a broken man. Demons haunt your mind and plague your sleep. Unable to cope, you are sent to a UAC medical facility that also happens to double as a radioactive toxic waste treatment plant. Here, along with the few other surviving scarred space marines, you are prescribed cryno-therapy. Your body is placed in suspended animation while your mind is flushed with chemicals and stimulants in order to cleanse the horrors from your psyche.

But something is wrong. As soon as you are put into stasis, you awaken again. Things are different. The building seems deserted and in shambles. No sounds are heard. You step out of your chrinochamber to a familiar smell. The smell of rancid flesh. The smell of death. You draw your pistol, which you never let leave your side no matter what the circumstances. You wonder if this nightmare will ever be over. You get the sense the worst is only beginning.

That was really cool. I played on UV to see your custom monsters. I'll probably go back and play HMP. I thought it might just be a really nice drawing, but it's more than that. I liked the flood.

The arcitecture was pretty darn good, the begining reminded me of the "library" from halo for some reason. Odd. Well it's good. 4/5 ~Joe Anderson

Huge, nonlinear, "instant death" areas - all things that turned me off. I imagine it's a level that others might well enjoy, but I didn't at all. Sorry.

This was a fantastic level: Beautiful architecture, intense fights, and rewarding secrets. I'll play it again and again. For me, the highlight was the fights; most DOOM fights, in my experience, involve running around until you're in a covered position with all of the enemies in front, so you can see all of their attacks and dodge effectively. Due to a combination of level design and well conceived ammo/health placement, I found it impossible to do that in this level, which made it much more exciting.

Helluva good map. It's expansive, nonlinear, and not at all square. Hell, the shape is one that almost no mappers today will ever try and tackle, yet it still looks just right. Brilliant fights, as well. Be damn sure and give this one a play, or else I'll have to come over there and kill your trains. -Xaser

I loved this...even if I can understand that gameplay is not for everyone. I'm dissapointed it got no Cacowards mention.

I loved this level, but to be honest it's a love it or hate it thing. The style will really excite some and won't appeal at all to others - same with gameplay, since that's pretty much connected with style anyways. But a non-objective five from me. I played HMP.

I loved this level, it was quite huge and the "free order of doing things" progression that covers most of the map was a nice change. Even the metallica music didn't bother me much, I actually thought it fit the map. 5 stars.

This is about as Doom as Doom can be - you get an overwhelming sense of loneliness in a giant, pentagram shaped techbase, with a Metallica midi going in the background, against 666 monsters (UV) and when the action picks up the odds seem insurmountable. Ammo felt very tight at points, but that added to the experience I felt. 5* -Phobus

So. Fucking. Amazing. Thank you for reviving my faith in DOOM's stock textures. And, of course, for the awesome level. - Viewtiful-Chris 5/5

"Awakening" is a large map that you can miss for its impressive graphics and interesting gameplay; difficulty is extremely challenging and may be very hard for the average Doomer!

Kick ass...the battles are well designed, the level looks awesome, the only annoying thing is finding out where you're supposed to go sometimes, make sure you pick up the full map and check it regularly. Only boring if you have no attention span, 80% intense action, 15% paranoia, 5% aimless wandering.

I was loving it until I died instantly while exploring a conveyor belt area. Please don't include instant death areas they are so annoying or maybe have a sign saying: Warning! Instant Death do not go in there. 4/5 because my death sucked and because it is pretty darn good.

This was a really boring map. It takes forever to get to where you need to go.

Story sucks, Doomguy? Scarred? Fuck that? Grow some balls and come up with a more badass story! Too many inescapable death pits, and I spent 15 minutes looking for where to go, not sure why you put the middle section as hidden... but overrall I'm gonna be objective and give you a 4 because I can see you did put a massive effort into and the level does look attractive, and there is some fun to be had here. Granted your a fan of modern wads.

      Awesome megawad. Great gameplay and visuals. New monsters... super coherent. Cheers :)

      Not that crazy as you can think from the title, it's a interesting map with some cool design choices and some nice small puzzles as well. Fun to play and run swell.

      Conceptually a pretty cool map, have a nice retextures of wall using the ice floor, giving more context to the main theme of icy cavern present here, the layout is good, some room design are pretty good for the age it was done (especially the starting area) but it's unfortunately ruined by two things: excessive slippery floors and a no exit lava pit, as well as the random nature of switches placement that activates something... somewhere. Where is not given to you to known, the same things happens for a secret (mandatory) corridors areas that connect the said grave. But despite this, is not that bad, actually!

      Meh, conceptually is not a bad map but in reality is really boring. Lots of squares and platforms, lacks of powerful guns and a boring gameplay. Also how the exit can be activated? The teleports are shitty as well.

      Not a bad DM map, have a nice layout with many height variation but no textures variations unluckily, even the end is set on a random unmarked wall that is not even in the exit room. Gameplay is pretty neat, i like it even playing with the bots.
