About This File

The products of Doomworld's 24th speedmapping session, started by Solarn. The session was held over five weekdays from May 24 to May 28. The theme was "metal" and only one map doesn't conform to it, but since it was made for the session and has good gameplay, I decided to include it anyway.

Some maps have difficulty settings, but others don't.

and here we are, finally at the end of dwspd wads unless a new one gets made soon enough (but we have several different names for speedmapping this time around, so it's perhaps unlikely). the main theme? METAL! although I can't help but think that making each metal map a slaughtermap or perhaps a segmented slaughtermap was also a secret rule nobody knew, as all of these maps can qualify for slaughtermaps. only MAP11 doesn't adhere to the theme of metal, but still has slaughter to it. these maps are also characterized by having loads of forced arena fights (where the headaches of having to wait rear its ugly head quite often, especially in MAP03), cyberdemons at the exit, and usually macro-architecture that accomodates the fights well. MAP06 is an exception to that last one, it's notably cramped. MAP01 sucks, doesn't give adequate resources to combat enemies especially arch-viles later on, while MAP02 is actually the best here. the rest tend to arena or segmented slaughter and hit or miss for the most part. just like all other dwspds really. there's still a few bugs like one-time only doors and such that didn't get noticed.

Unfortunately half of the maps aren't completable, because of unpressable switches and doors. Also softlocks in the maps occur often enough. you guys should fix and reupload, because the idea of the maps aren't that bad.

I don't know how to say... not so bad, but not good too. I give up on Map04 because I tired to dodge a lot of monsters in a small room/hall/walkway. Many maps are full of that shit, even worse, put 2 cyberdemons on a not big room or wide walk way. I hate them, even it's speedmapping... 2.5/5 -playerlin

It seemed like the authors either couldn't understand that Speedmapping is not Speedrunning. I had to haul ass through some of the small maps. Get keys, get to end. After I think map 9 I had to turn on iddqd because of the sheer insanity with the maps. The one that is the odd one out with non-matching textures matched the default map name (O of Destruction). It was a bit too much for me. Good effort, but please.. keep the amass of monsters to the Nuts.wad. 2/5

      What a set of maps. At first I only expected random maps that use use Mario textures, but this is so much more. From the cutesy bullet puffs of the weapons, to the plasmagun sprites, there have been more changes than "just" textures. All together they form a very, very coherent picture which makes you almost disappointed, that there are no Mario enemies in the game.   Even then, the actual quality of the maps surprised me quite a bit as well. Very, very fun to play from the beginning to the end, with admittedly frustrating parts (the map featuring only Archies and Revenants or the map featuring ice and wind. Oh god, the ice...). These are not just simple techbases given a Mario texture paint, these maps are well thought out and tailored to the textures, ranging from grass lands, over desert to impressive castle scapes and even an air ship. I played on TYTD not only because I am a wimp, but also because those maps are really, really hard and have some frustrating moments. It speaks for this mapset's quality, though, that you can live with those moments and still enjoy the maps.   Try it out at least.

      I really dig it! Its feel like a Ultimate Doom take of TNT, but its not at that level either.
      Its a great adventure mapset, leaning more to the  atmospheric and realistic architecture.
      First and second episodes are amazing. Introducing the new enemies as the maps unfold. But midway around episode three it start to lose steam, with a serie of really short maps and then maps really similar to the originals, this is not bad at all, just feels a little uninspireds. Fourth episode on the other hand, feels extremely rushed, with a lot of monotexturing and undetailed areas. Its not bad, but coming as the ending episode it could be much better, specially with the degree of detailing the author showed on the precious episodes.

      All the episodes offers a good challenge, even on Hurt Me Plenty, but don't expect anything near the difficulty of NEIS.   All in all, being one of the few complete Ultimate Doom megawads, its pretty good and i liked the new enemies sprites and the music used, almost all the time.

      No, this is not good by any stretch. First 25 levels feel like they are all the same - colorless, flat, dull and bland. Next 3 look like deathmatch arenas with a handful of monsters. Again, all pretty much the same. The last two are pitch black mazes - oh what fun. As for the secret levels - I abandoned both. Map31 is a maze alternating between pitch darkness and flashing primary colours and map 32 is simply an incomprehensible mess. Possibly acceptable if you just want to kill some time with mindless point and shoot, but not what I would call an enjoyable Doom experience. At least it avoids degenerating into slaughter.

      Pros: Straightforward, lot of action, no button madness. Plays smooth. Classic Doom feeling.
      Cons: Lots of invisible lines blocking monsters. Lots of hitscanners and not enough health packs.

      An enjoyable set of maps of easy difficulty (MAP 07 is medium) in UV with simple design that worked well for me. Finished the whole set in 02:40 min. Certainly worth a shot!
