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

      Pretty long maps and there are some real stinkers in there like map 19. But overall, its fun even though it can get frustrating at times.

      A fun, non-linear base level somewhat on the easy side but still worth playing and has good replayability.

      The only thing good about this set of maps are the encounters which are balanced. All the rest are horrible, noob designing with invisible pillars in all the maps, unavoidable damage without radsuits, keys required to progress in secret places, hidden teleport required to progress, everything bad in designing you can find in those maps. Be sure to avoid this, certainly one of worst set of maps I've ever played.

      How could i miss this gem for all this time... This is going to inspire me so much, level design is fantastic, top level creativity and a nice challenge. Texture usage is perfect and new sprites and monsters fit in perfectly.   1000/5, easily one of the best megawads ever made! Thank you Skillsaw!!

      I'd have to say this is a pretty creative one for Doom 2, its hard with lots of enemies, kind of plays like a direct sequel to Doom 2 in a lot of ways. One thing I will say is that the puzzles are hard to figure out, and might take you awhile to solve (use your map). The music is fantastic though, you don't really miss the classic music, and it's engaging to gameplay.   I will say though, like Doom 2 or Plutonia, ultraviolence is pretty brutal and isn't for everyone. You will get swarmed by absurd amounts of monsters at times, and they'll give you a beating, but it's doable. I'd say the puzzles will snag you more than the monsters, level 2 is a real humdinger, lol.   But, it's a big improvement over wads like Perdition's Gate, the mapping style is pretty creative. I give it 5/5, just so people will try it out.
