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

      Gotta take in count the effort put on doing this Just one big let down... why, why the hell Tails is an enemy?? :-(

      At some point I thought "is this a jokewad"?  Cause you enter a map and just in front of you you have the exit button, just like that.  Some maps have some decent design, but the choice of monsters might not be the best, and nazis, why the need to put nazis on several maps? Maps with 0 monsters, 0 secrets, just a freely exposed Romero head spawning monsters, a couple of maps are just you at the beggining in front of the Romero head, other maps are like "hey grab whatever weapons and ammo you can before Romero spots you".

      Not bad for an early 1994 level to be honest. It isn't good, but not bad. Being a Wolf3d fan I don't mind long corridors in maps that much, although the decoration could have been better that's for sure. If you're into old maps and corridor-esque maps, give it a shot.

      Partial truth in advertising - "This PWAD represents the combination of just 27 of some of the best levels I have found on the net." - maybe for a brief 6 month window in 1994. But compared to traditional/old school maps since, this selection would scrape through as a C- if you were grading school homework. Barely a pass. Mostly dull, bland and repetitive maps you have played elsewhere - maps you groan through and forget 2 seconds after you have finished them. Supreme ordinariness, nothing you ever want to see again. This is only of historical value. Not exactly enjoyable play. Nosireebob.

      I'm not very good at reviewing so bear with me: If you want a quick and fairly easy WAD then this is for you. It starts out fairly easy as well as being fairly linear and than it gets harder as it goes on. It's also fairly short too as it took me about an hour or two to complete on UV difficulty in GZDoom using the Doom (strict) compat mode.   The new textures were a nice addition although they were only featured in the last few maps. There are a lot of switches and "rising structures" (floors & lifts) but the placement of them is decent so they aren't a nuisance. The switches open doors or activate lifts that are pretty much right in front of you or in an area that you've just past through so the maps aren't that confusing (which is a good thing).   The one thing that i did not like about this WAD was that the exits were not marked. I exited a few levels with only 50% or so of the map explored due to the exit just being a normal looking switch. In a map that has quite a few switches that activate doors and lifts, you need the exit too look different or at least have an exit sign above it imo.   I did notice a few misaligned textures but tbh that's normal for 1994. Also, there are different sounds for weapons and some monsters as well that kind of annoyed me. I don't usually mind sound replacements and i know that a lot of early maps had them but this one just really got on my nerves at times. You'll hear GROOVY! a lot and it's not as cool sounding as Duke Nukem saying it, even though it is the actual sound clip from Evil Dead 2 (i believe).   Other than that this E1 replacement played alright for a '94 mapset, having decent layouts and monster placements. I give it 3 1/2 stars mainly because of the exit issue that really bugged me and the sound replacement not being my favorite.   [Oh btw, i played continuous. I tried playing pistol start only on a few maps but i just couldn't do it. I'm not sure if it's possible tbh. Maybe some of the weapons are hidden in secrets because i often found ammo in levels for some but not the weapon for it.]
