About This File

Have you ever wanted to just slap an imp silly? Ever dream of showing that pesky Revenant how a punch is really thrown? Do you chainsaw pink demons to death even when you have plenty of ammo? Then this wad may be just what you need to satiate your thirst for "up close and personal" killing.

In this level, assuming you don't cheat, you'll only have access to two weapons: your fist (augmented by berserk pack) and the chainsaw. I'm placing you on the honor code with regard to the pistol and the 50 rounds you start with, but even if you use it, you'll soon run out of ammo, and there is none to be had in this level.

Make no mistake, this level is not for sissies. The level starts out easy but quickly becomes rather nasty. Expect to face most of the DOOM 2 bestiary before you see the exit. The following are some general strategies for dealing with monsters, melee style. For imps, lost souls, and demons/spectres, either punching or the chainsaw will work well. Use the chainsaw on Pain Elementals, Cacodemons, and Arachnotrons, as it prevents them from attacking most of the time. For Hell Knights and Barons, I recommend you run up to them and punch ONCE, then back up and circle-strafe, rinse and repeat. For Mancubus, Revenant, and Arch-Vile, punch ONCE and then run to cover, rinse and repeat.

I included a demo file which will work with ZDoom 2.4.1, mostly because I'm sure some joker will say this level is too hard or impossible. The demo shows me beating the level with 100% everything. My DOOM skills are average at best, so if I can do it, you can do it. Make use of monster infighting and save often!

Pretty darn good. Although I think you should've probably made it harder. Maybe this idea could work with some melee weapon mod...

This is so cool! It's not that hard which is good. Also, it's the first time I finish the boss monster with the punch. I mean,. not idcliping, being it the real non cheating way to finish it, etc. 5/5 - Optimus

It's not often you come across a melee-only wad, but this one was pretty enjoyable.

A good map lifted up further by an interesting and somewhat unique concept.

      Well, the map is pretty basic. The map is quite challenging, with there being 0 ammo pickups (excluding the backpack) outside of the starting room. There are also nazis for some reason. I will give it 2 stars only because this really wasn't meant to be played to be enjoyed, but rather just a example of how to build a map in DEU.

      Rated one star. Take that, Tobias Andersson

      Solid set of re-interpretations of 11 of the original maps that looks better and are overall more challenging. If you're not a TNT fan this probably won't change your mind, as they do pretty much what the original maps do, but if you are then this is recommended. I especially liked Open Season and Stronghold in this one. I would have liked to see Eternal's idea of MAP12, but this was never made into a full megawad.

      Quite a fun map pack! It does get a little ridicilous sometimes (Pinky Trap in E1M1, and basically the entirety of E1M2) but it never feels "too unfair", it also seems to take reference or is based on actually Knee-Deep in the Dead levels, which makes the levels somewhat easy to navigate. Overall, very cool, very swag, i like it :D
