About This File

A 5-level WAD for Doom II.

After strolling through hellish catcombs, you emerge in a greenish pasture. A large fortress lies in front of you. Taking a few steps, you realize you're not alone, and bars descend from the ceiling blocking your way back.

The only way out is through. Good luck! --- NOTE: The wad is designed for single player, although it supports cooperative and deathmatch.

Recommended difficulty: Ultra-Violence!

Quite a cool map set, where you have to resort to monster infighting and chainsawing to win.

the red key on the last map is only flagged for UV and NM, meaning I can't complete that level on a lower setting unless I cheat. other than that, some very fine old-skool maps which are fun to play on if you pay attention to gameplay over design.

The maps here are very nice some wads just have meaningless crap just thrown toghether this is very noticeable that your in a fortress like citadel with very nice placed wall decorations not just random scattered all over. The monsters are placed well with good action feel fire fights You can hide behind pillers and walls its realistic. Theres no red key on easy skill so must be set on hard all the time that was a flaw to this 4 stars

The good: Weapon\health balance in the first four maps, weapons behind the monsters. Looks like a good 1995 level. The bad: 5 times marble styled maps is too much, some repetitive monsters combo's, the simple layout (x4). 3/5 coldfusio

almost good attempt to capture the true vanilla doom2 style. sadly it wasn't properly tested in appropriate ports - "GR Door Open" of first secret on map05 is tagged to zero tag and so brokes entire level.

Just what it says on the tin: a 5-level package chock full of green marble textures. The maps themselves aren't bad, but not special, either, and the last one appears to be lacking a red key. Sorry, I'm not a fan of this. 2/5 - ZZ

Good maps, though nothing too special. All 5 maps are playable from a pistol start, though some might be quite tough until you've hit upon a good strategy. Map03 is perhaps the pick of the bunch, gameplay-wise. Design and architecture are certainly competent.

What can I say? Fun. I like old-school shit like this, even it may let me feel boring when some point of some levels... 4/5 -playerlin

I love those small simple levels. Played it to the end. At the beginning it seemed like ammo was not enough but got better in the next levels. One thing, I couldn't find the red skull key at level five because as I found out later with an editor it was accidentally set to appear only in the hard level. 4/5 - Optimus

3.5 stars - 1 for the diry "must play on UV" trick. Still rounding up to 3.

By the way, when the author said "Recommended difficulty: Ultra Violence!" he was really recommending the hell out of it. The last required key map 5 is absent unless you play on skill 4. C'mon man, don't do that! Well the rest was fun up until that point. 4/5 -Lupinx-Kassman

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
